Bongs have been around for thousands of years and are one of the oldest and most reliable smoking devices you can use. As one of the most complex smoking mechanisms, bongs contain several working parts that create the smoking experience you’ve come to love. Like in any other smoking contraption, the bowl holds the dry herb before smoking. The carb hole allows the smoke to travel outside of the piece. The downstem creates a path for the smoke to travel to the base of the piece, before percolating in the water.
Perc BongsPercolators (Percs) within the glass water pipe provide a much-needed system of filtration that assists in cooling the smoke by breaking it up into little bubbles and increasing the surface area to be cooled down by the water for the perfect hit. This allows the smoke to be cooled down quickly for a more pleasant inhale that isn't harsh. We offer a wide variety of different percolator bongs like honeycomb perc, tree perc, recyclers, turbine percs, and much more!
Types of Popular Bong Percolators
Honeycomb Perc Bongs
Honeycomb perc bongs are some of the most popular types of bongs on the market because of their flawless and draggles function. Honeycomb percolators contain dozens of small holes cut into a disc that force your smoke and water through for maximum smoke cooling and filtration. Since there are so many holes when you inhale there is very little resistance, making for a smooth and easy smoking experience. Shop our huge selection of honeycomb Perc bongs!
Recyclers are type of bong that contains a unique style and function that move the water and smoke in a continuous motion while you inhale. This continuous motion increases the smoke cooling and filtration you get while smoking. Recycler bongs have grown in popularity in recent years and if you have no tried one we highly recommend it!

Customize Your Bong With AccessoriesOne of the best things about bongs is you can customize them to fit your own style and smoking preferences. We offer a wide variety of bong accessories that can upgrade your bong or just make it more personalized for you. A new bowl can increase the herb capacity of your bong, allowing you to smoke more during each smoking session. An ash catcher will prevent debris from entering the base chamber of the water pipe, making the cleaning process much less grueling. Our premium cleaning supplies will return your bong to its original condition, making each hit as enjoyable as the first.
Frequently Asked Questions About Bongs
What kind of bong is right for you?
Choosing a new bong can be both fun and confusing as there are so many options. The bongs today are far more advanced than the ones our ancestors used back in the day. You can choose one that is simple or very complex depending on how you like to smoke. If you prefer ice cold smoke, consider getting a bong that has an ice catcher which allows you to add ice cubes to further cool down the smoke.
If you like a lot of filtration we recommend getting a bong that contains lots of percolators and different chambers. The more percs and chambers your bong has, the more filtration and smoke cooling that can occur providing you with the most pleasant hit possible.

What is the difference between bong joint sizes?
All bongs have either a 10mm, 14mm or 18mm joint size. They can be either male or female. Typically the larger the joint size, the larger the hit you will get from a bong. If you prefer smaller and tastier hits we recommend a 14mm sized bong. However if you prefer as much smoke as possible, you can go for an 18mm. In most cases larger bongs have 18mm joints while medium sized bongs have 14mm and small bongs have 10mm joints. There is not a huge difference in function between the size of a bongs joint, so don't let it deter you from buying a bong you like if it has a smaller or larger joint size than you are used too. For for in depth information about bong joint sizes, be sure to check out or bong joint size guide.
Can I put ice in my bong?
Any bong that contains an ice catcher can hold ice! Be sure to read the product descriptions on our website so find out if the bong you are looking at contains an ice catcher or sometimes called an ice pinch. And ice catcher is simple pieces of glass inside the bong that stop ice from falling down in the bottom. This allows the smoke to wrap around the ice to help cool down the smoke right before you inhale it making for a more pleasant smoking experience. Just be sure to keep an eye on the water level in your bong as the ice begins to melt, you may need to pour some out. A large variety of the bongs we offer contain ice catchers so we know you will be able to find one that you love!
Are silicone bongs safe to smoke out of?
Yes! Silicone bongs are safe to smoke out of because they have a very high melting point making it great to use when making bongs. The biggest benefit of using a silicone bong is they are virtually indestructible, making them great for traveling or when smoking outdoors so you never have to worry about breaking your bong if you accidentally drop it. Silicone bongs are also very easy to clean because you can simply throw them in your dishwasher for cleaning!
