How to Find the Perfect Bong with Help From Denver Marijuana Dispensaries


March 14, 2019

When it comes to smoking weed from your favorited Denver dispensary, you have tons of options. You can roll a joint, pack a pipe, vape, or reach for the good ol’ fashioned bong. But when you’re ready to start building your own collection of cannabis gear, you need to pick tools that speak to you. So, how do you even start? After all, a bong is a bong, right? Not exactly. As with any smoking method, it’s a matter of personal preference. So, read on…we’re gonna go over what you need to know to pick the perfect bong.

Think About Your Lung Capacity
Larger bongs deliver larger hits while smaller bongs deliver smaller hits. Is larger better? Well, it depends on your lung capacity. If you have the tendency to take long drags off a joint or know you can fill your lungs with air and hold it for a while, a large bong is your best option. But if you’re relatively new to smoking or have some upper respiratory conditions (we hear you, allergy sufferers) go with a smaller bong. This will let you still enjoy the smoking experience without wasting a bunch of your favorite bud in the process.

How Clumsy Are You?
Accidents happen all the time. And nothing is worse than spending money on a high-quality glass bong only to see it shattered on your floor. Before you throw money down on a piece, think about how clumsy you are. Take a look at your kitchen cups. Are most of them plastic because all of your glassware broke? Then you might want to avoid buying a glass bong. But guess what! They make silicon bongs for a reason! These incredibly durable smoking apparatuses are easy to clean and won’t shatter on impact. This means you’re free to leave the piece on your coffee table without worrying about it breaking when you inevitably bump the table.

What’s Your Budget?
You can spend anywhere from $10 to $300 on a bong. It all depends on the types of materials, features, and designs you’re looking for. Before you head to the store and start browsing, think about what you’re willing to spend. If you’re looking for a long-term investment, a higher price will get you a higher quality piece. But if you’re looking for something convenient to use or don’t want to blow an entire paycheck at once, go for something cheaper. Remember, as long as it gives you a good hit and keeps your lungs happy, the bong is worth it. 

A bong is one of the best smoking devices any stoner can have in their arsenal. But finding the right one can be tough. Every device is different and delivers a unique smoking experience. The best way to find the right choice for your smoking preference is to ask for advice.
