Why You Should Buy a Bubbler Pipe for Smoking Marijuana

five chamber glass bubbler

Bubblers have since been the mystical method for smoking Marijuana to me.  Why is it mystical you might ask?  On first look to a novice it may look like a fancy pipe but for those that have marveled over the glasswork, you could get lost in the twists and turns funneling into multiple chambers, a water reservoir, and eventually getting you blazed.  Most people commonly use pipes, bong or simply roll a joint and blaze it the good ol’ traditional way to get high.   This article was written for those of you who haven’t smoked from a bubbler before, just give me 1 minute of your time.

Bubblers can be an alternative and fun method for smoking and should be used to add variety to your smoking experience.  Bubblers are usually alot smaller than your standard bongs and have a bowl, similar to that at the end of a pipe, which is removable and is located at the top of a cylinder (I’m sure you’ve seen it before). It is then inserted inside the bubbler and the bubbler is partially filled with water at a point above the cylinder object. A person then lights the bowl. Smoke then travels through the water and into the mouth of the user when he or she releases their thumb from the base of the bubbler. The water helps filter the THC and also decrease the temperature of the smoke that is inhaled.  So in the end its kinda like smoking a the lovechild of a bong and pipe.   But in my opinion and the opinion of many other bubbler users, the end result is a smoother smoke than that of a pipe.  Be careful though, as the water in the bubbler gets dirty real fast and if you pull the smoke too hard, you are likely to inhale some of that skunked water as well.  I recommend cleaning out the bubbler and emptying the water after every smoke session to ensure a great experience every time, but who am I kidding, that never happens.  So just make sure you clean it out once every few uses to keep your bubbler just as majestic as when you first saw it on the store shelves or in your online shopping cart.  Having a larger than pocket sized bong is just down right convenient.  Your hits are likely to not be as strong as fat as your bong hits but they will get the job done especially if you have some good bud.  No go fill that bubbler up with some water and let it rip!

What’s the right bong for me? A brief beginners guide to glassware

Bongs have been around for decades, and have been constantly adapting to new products that enter the market. Many first time users don’t know quite how to smoke marijuana and will go to the local marijuana shop and purchase a “cool” looking bong rather than one that will provide them with the best high. Bongs can be made from a variety of material such as plastic, glass or ceramic. Some old school Asian bongs are even made of bamboo.

The classic bong that many stoners use is one that is made of glass and is clear so that they can see the water and smoke when using it. Usually these bongs have sweet ass attachments such as splash guards, diffusers or ash catchers.  These types of bongs also can be bent so that an individual may take a hit when reclined. Plastic bongs are usually cheap bongs that allow for low budget stoners to get high. Using these bongs may dilute the taste of good weed (you get that plastic taste mixed in there) and more often than not do not have any separate attachments like glass bongs do. Ceramic bongs usually are the ones with crazy colors, and I usually don’t recommend those as I like to see my water inside the bong to make sure it is clean.

The best advice I can give the amateur stoner would be to try a few different bongs owned by some of your friends to find out which bong best suits you rather than go into a store an aimlessly throw money away.
