We have a nice range of beautifully colored and good quality bongs. A bong is a special kind of water pipe, which is small and therefore easy to carry. It is usually used to smoke weed or hash. If you are interested in a bong, you can easily order in the Dr. Paddo.
Not sure what the difference is between a bong or a water pipe? They are basically the same, but a water pipe has a hose with a small spout on it from which the smoke comes out. A water pipe is originally used to smoke tobacco (shisha).
A bong, on the other hand, looks different. It stands out because of the thick pipe, this is the tube through which you inhale the smoke. This gives you a lot of smoke in one go, making the effect stronger. The smoke is more concentrated. So if you use a bong instead of a bong, you'll get high faster. Products other than tobacco are often smoked in a bong, such as weed or hash. In principle, this is also possible in a water pipe, but it is not actually intended for that.
It is often thought that the origin of the hookah (also called shisha) lies in the Middle East. But research shows that hookahs were used much earlier, as early as 1100 BC. These ancient water pipes were found in Ethiopia. From there, the use spread to the rest of the world. The hookah became especially popular in China and the nobility smoked tobacco in beautiful metal water pipes. However, the common people, who sometimes wanted to smoke, developed simple bongs made of bamboo. This is how the well-known bong was born.
Both the hookah and bong are now used all over the world, from Jamaica (where the bong is very popular) to Australia. The bong is also widely used in the Netherlands, especially because soft drugs are tolerated here. What is striking is that here in the West mainly younger people use the bong. In the Middle East, it is the elderly who are traditionally allowed to smoke the hookah.
A bong is very versatile. Many people think that you can only smoke soft drugs, such as hash and weed, but you can also use regular tobacco. Using a bong is no different from a shisha or water pipe. Put water in the bong. How much you need differs per bong. But there is a tube in the bong (the downpipe), and it should be well under water at the bottom.
Then put the weed or hash in the bowl (the bowl). This is usually on the downpipe, which ends in the large sphere of the bong. It is important that you make sure that your hash or weed does not fall through the pipe into the water. To prevent this, you can use a pipe screen (metal gauze). Now it's time to smoke: completely cover the opening of the bong with your mouth. If your bong has a carb hole (also called a kick hole), put your thumb on it. This hole must be closed to prevent you from sucking in false air.
Ignite your smoking material with a lighter, and while you do this you suck on the bong. The hash or weed will start to glow and smoke. The smoke goes through the downpipe into the bowl, through the water. When the smoke flows well, put the lighter away. Suck well until your bong is full of smoke. If you have a glass bong, you can see this clearly. Now you can inhale the smoke. Your finger is still on the kickhole. You can leave these if you want to smoke quietly. Remove your finger if you want to inhale the smoke more quickly. You may well have to cough when using a bong, even experienced smokers still do that.
The advantage of a bong over normal smoking is that the smoke in the bowl first cools down by the water. This will make it feel less sharp when you inhale it. Due to the large pipe of the bong, you can also choose to inhale a lot of smoke at once. This allows you to achieve the effect you want faster. You can also add alcohol to the water if you wish. This gives your smoke an extra tasty taste. Be aware that smoking with a bong is not healthier than a cigarette.
