Besides, you can make the juices from home to prove that the color is legit and hides no dirt. Follow along to learn everything about bong water drinks. But first, let’s understand the bong and its water.
What is A Water Bong?
A bong is a smoking device used to smoke dry herbs such as marijuana and tobacco. Like a smoking pipe, the bong’s primary function is to filter your hits and keep the smoke cool. However, the bong is larger than a pipe since it has a chamber to store water. Other parts of a bong include the downstem, bowl, mouthpiece, percolators, and ice catchers.
Notably, the bong’s water chamber is sometimes called the base or the vase, depending on the bong you use. For example, a beaker bong is a pipe with a beaker-shaped base to hold more water. Modern bongs have different forms and shapes of water chambers, including avocados and skulls.
You must pour in the water until the downstem is fully submerged for the bong to function. Then place your dry herbs on the hole and light up, inhaling gradually at the mouthpiece’s tip. The smoke will move from the bowl to the water chamber through the downstem, where it’s filtered and cooled down.
The filtration process is crucial as it prevents unwanted resin and chemicals from reaching your throat. Besides, the cooling ensures that the hit goes deep into your lungs. It’s also worth noting that you can enhance the filtration and cooling by using a bong with several water chambers, percolators, and ice catchers.
How To Treat Dirty Bong Water?
Now that bong water is meant for filtration, all the harmful elements, including fungi and bacteria, remain in the water and could emit an odor or change color with time. If you’ve used a bong before, you know the smell the water leaves behind when it spills on your carpet.
For this reason, dirty bong water should be drained into the sink immediately after smoking to avoid further contamination from stagnation. Avoid drinking or watering plants with water from a used bong, as that would be risky and counterproductive.
