Get to Learn More About Your Glass Bongs
Right after you buy your piece, you’ll likely be swept away by its beauty. This is okay, but before your initial session, take some time to know your piece a bit. Here are some things you should learn about it:
Glass Bongs Downstem
Every bong has a downstem either built into the piece or made as a removable part of the whole unit. Whatever the case may be, know your downstem. Know the size of the joint, know the length of it, know the angle, know what kind of diffusion it has. Not all these criteria will be important for all pieces, but the moment you walk into a head shop and see a downstem you really love and you think it will fit perfectly with your bong, so you buy it and it does, you’ll thank me.
Glass Bongs joint size
Knowing your downstem’s size can sometimes be very different from knowing the size of your bong’s joint. Some have an 18mm joint with a downstem that converts it from 18mm to 14mm. In that case, it would be worth knowing because you could ideally fit a 18mm bowl into your piece by bypassing the downstem, or you could just buy a 14mm bowl. This greatly increases your options when buying bongs accessories for your piece.
