Bongs - What is a bong? How does a Bong Work?
Bong information: In Bongs the smoke passes through water
to cool and filter it. Marijuana, Herbal Smoke, Hookah
Smoke, Legal Buds etc., is placed into a bowl on the end of a tube
whose other end is in a sealed container partially filled
with water. The end of the tube attached to the bowl is
below the level of the water so that as the smoke exits the
pipe it travels through a layer of water. The air pressure
in the chamber is lowered through another tube that stays
above the water level in the chamber. When the air pressure
inside the chamber is lowered, air from outside the chamber
passes through the bowl and its tube and bubbles through the
Bongs are not particularly portable, as they tend to be awkward, delicate and heavy. Sizes range from the size of a small pill container to eight foot tall escapees from a mad scientist laboratory. Principally made from glass, plastic, ceramic, and metal they can be an art form unto themselves. The principal benefit of smoking through a bong is that the smoke is cooled. One can put any number of liquids in the chamber to filter the smoke, and beer or other forms of alcohol are often used, but this is not recommended. The active ingredients in herbal smoke, legal buds or marijuana are fat and alcohol soluble and when filtered through such substances the active ingredients go into the solution.
In addition the carcinogens in smoke are water soluble so that when smoke passes through some liquid other than water one loses active ingredients and gains carcinogens in the smoke entering your lungs. One method is to put ice water in the chamber, the cooled water is not quite as effective at removing the carcinogens but the additional cooling is favored among smokers. Carburetors are small openings in the chamber that are covered during the hit and towards the end opened to allow all the smoke to escape the chamber. Occasionally one finds a bong designed so that carbonation is accomplished by lifting the bowl slightly and allowing the air to enter the bowl tube.
