Water pipes or bongs are one of the most popular ways to smoke weed. That’s because they are easy to use and keep clean and they filter the smoke giving you a smooth experience. However, there’s a number of bong accessories available online that can be used to customise your bong. Let’s take a look at some of these accessories.
Bowl or pipe screens
Regular use of your bong can result in a build-up of ash or resin that quickly accumulates in the bowl. If this happens, you can inadvertently get a mouthful of ash when you use your bong, particularly if you don’t clean it out very often. To prevent this happening, you can purchase bong accessories known as bowl or pipe screens that fit inside the neck of the bowl. These are designed to be flexible so that they can be shaped or cut to fit the neck of the bowl. They can be made from brass (for glass or ceramic bongs), steel (for acrylic or silicone bongs) or from glass (often built into glass bongs).
To make your smoking experience even smoother, you can add an ash catcher. This captures any unwanted ash that remains in the smoke, filtering it before it’s inhaled and also helps to keep the bong clean. Made from glass, ash catchers can also come with built-in percolators to further improve the quality of your smoke and cool it down even more. So if you want a clean and fresh hit every time, consider purchasing one of these bong accessories online.
For a cooler and smoother smoke think about adding a percolator to your bong. These are made from glass and available in different sizes and shapes to suit your particular bong. In fact, they’re so popular that many bongs come with built-in percolators. Basically, a percolator is an extra water chamber that adds another layer of filtering and cooling to the smoke. If your bong doesn’t have a percolator, then be sure to check out our bong accessories.
The bowl is where you pack your smoking material and light it, so it’s usually built into your bong. However, you can purchase bowl attachments, either because they make your bong look awesome or because your current bowl isn’t large enough for your needs. They’re available in an amazing array of shapes, sizes and designs and can be used to change the aesthetics of your bong at will.
The downstem is another of the bong accessories that usually comes with your bong. However, if it gets broken or you want to enhance your smoking experience, you can purchase a new standard downstem or a diffused downstem. The downstem is a long tubular piece of glass that connects the bowl and the body of your bong, allowing the smoke to be drawn through the mouthpiece as you inhale. A diffused downstem aerates this smoke, providing a smoother hit.
To turn your bong into a dab rig (giving you the ultimate hit!), you need a quartz banger that’s used in place of the bowl. The quartz can be heated to a higher temperature than the existing glass bowl and provides a much better smoke. Once the quartz banger is red hot, add a dab of your favourite concentrate and enjoy the experience!
