But first, let’s jump into what is a bong and how to use one correctly.
The anatomy of a bong
A bong is a versatile tool that can be used for smoking tobacco, medical marijuana, or simply for decorative purposes. To better understand the power of the bong we should talk about the various parts and pieces that comprise bongs so you can understand them better. Then you will better understand how to clean a bong the right way.
Parts of a bong:
- Bowl/Bowl Piece (also called a dome or slide)
- Tube (also called a stem) – Mouthpiece
The base or foot of the bong is where it rests on a surface when in use. The downstem is a hollow tube that extends from the base into the water and is used to hold the bowl and smoke the herb. The bowl piece is where you place your herb and it sits on top of the downstem. The tube is inserted into the bowl piece and goes up through the water to the mouthpiece.
