A bong uses a process of filtering the smoke through water to remove residue.
The key benefits of water filtration system are:
- Toxins - lethal chemicals such as tar are removed by the water filtration within the bong.
- Heat - keeping the smoke cool helps to make the bong hit less harsh for the user. This makes it substantially better for the smoker’s lungs, in comparison to conventional smoking.
- Taste - using a bong helps to preserve the terpenes in the herbs. This helps the smoker to enjoy the natural taste of the plants, without tasting smoke from the fire.
- Usability - a bong is convenient and easy to use, in comparison to rolling papers.
Types of Bongs
Each type of bong has its advantages and disadvantages but ultimately it comes down to the smoker, what you put in it, as to what their preference is.
