Meet The Bong

Actually bong is nothing more than a smoking device, that can be applied for anything including tobacco and other herbal substances, but somehow over the last few decades it became a cult thing for all the marijuana enthusiasts all over the world. The word itself is an adaptation of the Thai word “baung” which refers to a cylindrical wooden tube, pipe or a container cut from bamboo and used for smoking. Bongs have been around for centuries, but the first modern use of the word dates back to the January 1971 issue of the Marijuana Review.

The usual bong consists of a vertical pipe and a stem that pitches through one of the pipes sides diagonally near the bottom of the pipe. The stem’s upper part is covered by some kind of tinfoil or metallic net and holds the smoking substance. The pipe’s lover end is sealed and the upper one is open also the pipe has a small hole on the side somewhere around 1/4 of the pipe. The bong can be filled with water of ice, which helps to cool down or filter the smoke and make it more delicate and smooth.
