There are so many benefits of smoking using a bong rather than using the other methods like sniffing or rolling a blunt. However, the bongs came in handy with the cons too. The ways of smoking either via a blog or convectional method, vary. Below are some of the pros and cons of smoking through a bong.
We all know that bong is design to have water filters. This helps to filter the smoke to prevent the user from consuming toxic substances. The smoke is filtered by the water, which also makes the smoke to be cooler compared to other ways of smoking like rolling a blunt. What happens to a substance which is free from germs? Let’s say, for this case, harmful toxins? The smoke tastes sweeter and smoother. In addition, there is that natural smoke that comes while smoking from a blog i.e.; you don’t have to inhale other things like paper ash and other mixes.
Bongs are also easier to use. When an individual uses a roll to smoke, he or she might get burnt when the cigar becomes smaller and smaller. However, when it comes to bongs, you fully depend on the tube, which with certainty, cannot be consumed while smoking. Bongs also give one large volume to inhale compared to other devices. Some of the blogs are improvised with chambers with ice cubes, which make it even easier for the user to inhale cooler smoke.
For the cons, during the filtration of the smoke in water, the trapping of tetrahydrocannabinol, which is responsible for making the individual be high, leads to users to smoke more in order to reach their desires. This explains that water has a high affinity for THC than the other toxic substances, which are said to be filtered. Secondly, the water should be changed more frequently; otherwise, it will affect the taste and smell of the smoke; this makes the device to be time-consuming.
Most bongs are also fragile and cumbersome; a good example is the glass bongs, which easily breaks when its mishandled. Some of the bongs are expensive considering the cost of the materials they have used in designing it, for example, the glass blogs. Multi-chambered blogs are expensive as well. We can clearly see that the bongs play a huge medical role- prevent consumption of toxic substances- which could save a lot of cost to any individual who is using it. In addition, it has the cons, but they don’t outweigh the pros since we would rather consider our health before we buy something expensive and that’s what bongs are improvised for. All in all, it serves purposefully, and depending on how well you maintain it or use it will determine if you are experiencing the cons more than the pros or vice versa.
