New to smoking bong or bubbler?

I've only smoked out of pipes, and I'm not a fan. They're very harsh and get gross fast.

I've heard bongs can hit you pretty hard, I'd rather have a nice mellow smoke if that makes sense.

does a bubbler make more sense? Anything I should look for?

Bubblers are just like bongs, as they are water filtered. However the bubbler is a bit of a slower draw as opposed to a quick pull of a bong hit.

I find the quality of weed makes a difference as much as the smoking method. Good weed is better on the throat than poor herb.

If you find smoking too harsh, check out vaping.

The quality of weed is a good point. Isn't vaping expensive or no? Can I get buy with a cheap one?

You need a 3' plastic bong!

Just kidding of course..

Keep in mind water pipes need to be cleaned so make sure what you get is easily cleanable. I would recommend a straight glass tube with an Ash catcher attachment. Which keeps the piece cleaner and adds diffusion, smooth hit. Simple, effective.

Vaping makes me want to smoke weed or combust as the kids say. Just my opinion..

Good luck

Bongs & bubblers get nasty quick & need to be cleaned often due to ash & tar (resin) buildup. If they aren’t cleaned, they’re nasty to puff on!

If your buds are harsh they’ll be harsh in either of the mentioned devices as well, IME.

For concentrates, I actually prefer a bong as the vapor stream can be exceptionally hot & burn the throat. But vapes shouldn’t be used above about 750F due to benzene rings being released (carcinogenic).

Beaker bongs +1 an ash catcher is exactly what it sounds like.... plus it might percolate the water and smoke a lil more before it gets to you.. The water still gets stale really quick... that is the down side to bongs... stinky water... bubblers get stinky and dirty even faster....


What type of pipe do you currently use? for dry bowls I prefer a hammer style or a sherlock... something with a deep body under the bowl so it doesn't clog so fast....



I also like to use a glass caltrop ( glass screen that looks like a jack) it prevents herb from clogging my bowl and flying into my mouth when i take a hit....


also like to use hemp wick... it makes for a more enjoyable smoking experience over all

I use a bubbler without water. Bong water splashing isn't a good thing. I knew a guy in high school class of 75 that put rum in his bong then drank it.
