Me Time Box products offers a wide array of hand blown glass pipes, including the giants of the collection, bongs! A bong is one of the most fun and fulfilling smoking pipes for your medicine, but for some people it may seem like a little too much. Don’t worry, not only should you not be intimidated by a bong, but it is one of the best delivery tools for your medicine. Whether you have purchased an individual water pipe or the bong subscription box, it is bound to put a smile on your face.
A bong is the classic water filtration system that was first introduced to the world over 2,400 years ago in the far east. Bongs have also been called billies and moofs, and the word originates from the Thai word, baung. The general idea is that all of the smoke from your medicine will first go through water before being inhaled. The water will trap a lot of the larger particles in the smoke, along with many of the toxins, so that you get a cleaner smoke.
Bongs don’t need to be big either. Me Time Box Products offers even 4 inch and 6 inch bongs so that you can find just the right one for you. It is important that you have the glass smoking pipe collection that fits you and your friends. Some people think the really big bongs are a lot of fun though, so that is up to you.
To start, simply pour some water into the larger chamber of the bong that you smoke out of. Watch the water line through the glass, you just need enough water to cover the bottom of the stem of the bowl. Like smoking out of bubbler, you will find that you often tilt your bong back a little while you are smoking which will help the water cover the stem of the bowl even more.
Break up your medicine well and pack it into the bowl just like you would any other smoking pipe, such as a spoon pipe. You light the bowl the same way you would any other pipe, try cornering the bowl to help preserve your medicine. Put your mouth against the top of the large chamber so your entire mouth is in the pipe and your cheeks are sealing the pipe airtight. Begin inhaling and you will see the water bubble at the bottom of the bong and the flame from the lighter pull into the bowl, just like any other pipe. First time bong users will get a little wide-eyed seeing the chamber fill slowly with smoke like morning fog rolling into San Francisco.
If there is a tricky part to smoking out of a bong, it’s pulling the bowl. First, a quick warning, do not blow into the bong. That may seem obvious but a bong can deliver a serious hit that may make you cough. If you are new to smoking out of a bong you might accidentally cough into the pipe. If that happens you may shoot water and your bowl right out of the pipe. That’s just messy. Also, be careful not to inhale too hard, especially on smaller bongs, as the taste of the water in the bong is not what you would call a delicacy.
Back to pulling the bowl. Some of the Me Time Box Products bongs have a carb on the side you can use to clear the pipe, especially the smaller ones. But, larger bongs tend to have precision fitted glass bowls that simply sit freely in the stem and maintain an airtight connection. They will have a small handle you can hold and use to pull the bowl out of the stem. Pulling the bowl will clear the chamber of smoke while you are inhaling just like taking your finger off the carb.
You should find that the smoke is much cleaner and smoother after being filtered by the water. It is a fantastic way to get the most out of your medicine. If you really want to get creative, grab three or four ice cubes out of your freezer and carefly drop them into the big chamber. The ice will chill the smoke and make your hit even more smooth.
I hope this helps with your smoking experience and makes your introduction to using a bong a little less intimidating and more fun. We appreciate you choosing Me Time Box Products and working with one of the independent pioneers of the industry. Bongs will let you get even more out or your Me Time.
