Glass thickness

One of the first factors that you should take into consideration when purchasing a cannabis bong is the thickness of the glass that is used to make it because this to a great length determines it’s durability. It is recommended that you go for one that has thick glass but while at it ensure that you take into consideration the environment in which you are going to use this bong. If it is stationed in one room, then you can go for one that has thin glass, but if you will be carrying it around and you have friends who are clumsy, it is advisable that you go for one which has a thick glass.


When it comes to the issue of percolators, there is not one that can get a straight recommendation as it depends on the one who is making a purchase. When you weigh on which percolator to settle for, one, take into consideration the level of smoothness that it provides after filtration, and secondly, the amount of drag that you will achieve when pulling the smoke. If it is now that you have started using a cannabis bong, then you need not purchase a percolator. For a starter in cannabis bong use, it is advisable to avoid bongs that have numerous percolators.


When you are out there looking to purchase a cannabis bong, you should take into consideration how easy or hard it will be for you to clean your bong. Since you will be using it, it will become dirty at some point as it would have accumulated some smoke residue and tar. That is why it is recommended that you select a simple cannabis bong that has no percolators as this will be easy to clean. But if it has two or more percolators, then be sure that you will have to put more into its cleaning. To avoid all this, buy an ash catcher as you can use it best with a bong that has got percolators.

Joint size

Joints in cannabis bongs usually come in two common sizes, those that have 14mm and those that have 18mm. To achieve the best experience and use, it is advisable that you purchase a bong that has joints that are of the same size as this will go a long way in allowing you to mix and match if you break a slide.
