How to smoke a bong?

If you are new to the magical world of bongs, you might be wondering how you should smoke one and how such a tiny piece of equipment can change your whole perspective of life. In order to help you embark on this beautiful journey it is imperative that you first understand the origin of bongs. The bong is a descendant of the hookah; the name bong was coined using a Thai word “Baung” which basically means a wooden tube that is cut from a bamboo tree.

There have been numerous sightings of bongs throughout the span of time especially in Asia as cannabis is native to central Asia. However contrary to popular belief bongs were actually first created in Africa as many archaeologists have found magnificent old school bongs buried deep underground in Africa. Now you know how bongs entered the world, we can now move on to the more difficult part which is learning how to smoke one.  In order to make you a pro bong smoker we have articulated a list of steps you should follow that will help you smoke a bong to perfection.

Steps to help smoke from a bong

Before you start following the steps mentioned below, we would recommend checking that you first make sure no one is home in case you can get into trouble. Once you are sure that you are completely safe then please consider these steps,

Fill your bong with water 

Alright now the very first step that you have to follow in order to smoke your bong is pouring water from the top of the chamber. Please just pour enough water that the stem is covered as only ½ of the chamber is supposed to be submerged in water. You can also add ice to the chamber to make the smoke smoother and cleaner!

Pack the bowl

Once you have filled the bong with water, you can move onto the next step which is packing the bowl with cannabis. If you are smoking has you will have to break small pieces and place them evenly around the bowl, if you are smoking weed then you will have to use a crusher before you fill the bowl. Once you have crushed your weed fill the bowl till the rim but make sure there is still room for air to pass, if you pack the bowl leaving no room then the bong will not work properly.

Put your mouth on the top of the chamber

This is the final step that you have to follow in order to smoke a bong, put your mouth on top of the camber with your lips inside the chamber. Please do not slobber all over the mouth piece because it is a sign of a noob and is simply disgusting. Now simply place your finger on the toke hole and light the bowl using a flame lighter (a jet lighter will burn the cannabis to much). While lighting the bowl start sucking the smoke and move your finger from the toke hole. The moment you remove your finger all of the smoke will escape the chamber into your mouth and voila you have smoked your very first bong on your own!
