When it comes to smoking beginners, water pipes are said to be the best starting points. They are easy to use, safe and widely available. However, what is it exactly and how does it work? To help you understand it better, here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know.

A water pipe, also known as a bong, is basically a smoking device, which is typically used for cannabis. Some people often confuse it with a hookah pipe due to certain similarities, but one tell-tale difference is that a water pipe comes with a slide or a carb, you can view examples and familiarize yourself with bongs at www.herbtools.co.uk/bongs.html – They also have shisha pipes for sale over at herbtools!.

Water pipes tend to vary greatly when it comes to the overall design. There are plenty of creative varieties available that put a playful spin on their shape, the colors used, the materials it’s made out of and even the sizes. Most smokers will personalize theirs by adding customizations, such as stickers or painting them with their favorite colors.

How to Use a Water Pipe?

Smoking using a water pipe is quite different from using a hand pipe or simply smoking a joint. The most significant difference will be the fact that water pipes actually cool the smoke before it goes into your lungs. It also provides a much fuller smoke inhale as opposed to the smaller and more frequent inhalations you need to do when smoking a joint or using a pipe.

At first glance, a bong may seem daunting especially if you have picked a particularly intricate design. However, most of them work in the same way.

– Begin by filling the base with water. There will be markers for this so just follow that. Tap water is fine, though some people will use other liquids such as soda or herbal teas. It all depends on personal preference. Water is the recommended medium, however, since it absorbs much less of the THC. Bongs can also provide clean hits so using beverages such as coke will affect the taste of the smoke. Keep that in mind.

– Pack the weed into the bowl and light it up.

– Using the mouth piece, inhale some of the smoke. This will be overwhelming for most first timers as, typically, all the smoke contained in the pipe needs to be inhaled as it would go stale otherwise. Dry hits are also common for beginners. As with most things, it will take some getting used to.

– If the user feels satisfied enough with the smoke he has inhaled, it’s time to clear the smoke. This is referred to as pulling the slide and is done to introduce clean air.

Aside from being easy to use, especially for first timers, smoking using bongs can also provide some level of filtration. This is great for your overall lung health as that removes many of the bad substances in the smoke.
