Rolling your own cigarettes or packing a pipe used to be the two most common ways to inhale smokable products. Smokers today have several options to choose from—including using glass pipes, bongs and hookahs—that fit into all sorts of lifestyles and ways of smoking.
First, let’s address the question that’s probably on your mind: Is buying higher quality glass products for smoking worth the extra money? That depends on your smoking preferences and budget, but many regular smokers will say “yes.”
Here are a few things beginners should look for and consider when picking out glass bongs in Scottsdale, AZ.
Keep your lung capacity in mind
The first thing you want to consider is how long you can hold your breath, because your lung capacity plays a role in finding the best glass bong for you. This is an important factor that gets overlooked quite often, but is necessary to know for anyone looking to buy a new bong. You want glass that works well for you, and it has to be a piece you are comfortable using. Those who have been around the smoking scene for a while will suggest you choose a bong that you can clear of smoke in a single, swift inhale.
Research and compare brands
Although there are many brand name bongs that offer a reasonable quality product, the choice of brand and style will vary from person to person. Like most merchandise you buy, bongs are sold at various price ranges, and the higher the price tag typically means the better the glass quality. You’re likely to go through a few brands before settling on one you love, so does spending more money on a bong as a beginner make sense? The answer depends on your personal preference.
Look for high quality materials
Glass is an excellent material to make smoking devices. However, give careful consideration to the thickness of the glass—you will get what you pay for. A good rule of thumb is that thinner glass walled bongs are, for the most part, a cheaper product, while thicker glass is typically heavy duty and of higher quality. Also, look for a bong with the label “glass-on-glass” to ensure the downstream is snug to the main chamber instead of requiring a rubber gasket.
Consider a bong with extras
A bong’s purpose is to cool down the smoke before it’s fully inhaled into your lungs. With this in mind, you should want to buy not only a high quality bong, but a bong that has extras, including a diffuser, an ice catcher or an extra percolator. The full package ensures a pleasant experience.
Just because you are a beginning smoker doesn’t mean you should throw your money away on cheap glass bongs in Scottsdale, AZ. This could lead to a bad first experience, one that turns you off from anything related to a smoke shop.
