Using a bong is one of the most common and effective ways out there. It’s also an awesome way to get a strong hit.
But if you don’t know how to use a bong, it can seem way more intimidating than it actually is. In this post, we’ll teach you how to use a water bong.
Step One: How to Fill a Bong
First of all, fill up your bong with tap water. It should cover the holes of the downstem by about one half of an inch.(The downstem is that tiny tube that actually goes inside the bottom of the chamber.)
Don’t overfill it, as it will just mean you’ll have to make more of an effort to pull in the smoke. Also, the temperature of the water doesn’t really matter, so we suggest starting with room temperature and adjusting from there as you learn what you like.
When the water bubbles slightly when you pull in on the mouthpiece, it’s at the right level.
If you have a percolator, you’ll also need to fill them up with water.
Then, put the downstem in, and make sure no water touches your lips when you pull in.
Break up the cannabis with a grinder, and pack the bowl loosely. Once you’re satisfied, put the bowl in the downstem.
Step Two: Using a Bong
Now, you’re ready to learn how to use a bong.
To take a hit, put your lips on the opening of the chamber, to make a kind of seal. Purse your lips like you’re giving the chamber a kiss, and slip them inside — don’t put your mouth over the outside of the chamber.
Then, light the bowl and breathe in, continuing to inhale as the bowl lights up. To breathe in fully, take the bowl out and breathe in.
The truth is that you don’t actually need to hold the smoke in your lungs for an extended period of time.
You won’t get any more intense of a “high” by doing so, so you can exhale almost immediately after you finish pulling the smoke into your mouth.
To be polite, get rid of any extra smoke that’s still in your bong before you give it to the next person.
