What is a Bong Bowl?
A bong bowl is the most crucial component of a bong. It is essential to the entire process. A bong bowl is where you place all of your herb that is ready to be combusted! Without it, you wouldn’t be able to smoke anything out of your bong. No matter how nice your setup may be. Without one of these babies, you aren’t going to be able to do anything with it.
Bong bowls can be made out of many different materials. Wood and borosilicate glass are the most commercially available types of bongs. This is because when created correctly they can handle the heat required while using a bong!
The shape of a bong bowl does not matter that much truthfully. As long as it fits the piece it is meant for and has a place that can hold the material you want to burn. If you think that
Are there different types of bong bowls?
There are different types and sizes of bowls. It is important to know what type of bowl your piece fits with before purchasing a bowl. There aren’t many options, but if you grab the wrong one, you won’t be able to use it at all. This is where we come in. Let us tell you the differences in bong bowls today so you don’t have to worry about choosing the wrong thing.
What sizes do bong bowls come in?
When it comes to bong bowls sizes there are mainly two different options. You can choose between the 14mm or the 18mm bowl. These are the two sizes used most frequently in the industry. However, you may run into a piece that requires a smaller bowl, and that size would be 10mm. Here at Fat Buddha, we will always tell you what bowl a bong requires on its product description page, but if you have any trouble choosing what size is the right size for you. Let us know, and we will gladly help you pick out that perfect bowl!
When it comes to bong bowls, you don’t have to go with the normal clear glass cone bowl.There are many unique bong bowl options out there for you to accessorize with. Here at Fat Buddha we really do think of the bowl as a good chance for you to further personalize your piece. When you have a bong or rig that has a few upgrades, it changes the whole feeling of your piece. It goes from a house to a home!
What about Bangers?
Are you a concentrate lover, who wants nothing to do with bong bowls? Well, do no fear! Bangers are here! At Fat Buddha Glass we keep the best quartz bangers around in stock, so you always have the option for concentrate. Did you know that almost any bong can be turned into a dab rig, simply by changing from an herb bowl to a quartz banger. To be absolutely clear though, some pieces work better than others as a dab rig. In our experience, the smaller pieces provide you with the maximum amount of flavor in your concentrate, oil, or wax.
Just like bowls, quartz bangers have specific sizes that you need to pay attention to when purchasing. Quartz bangers typically come in 14mm as well as 18mm. Unlike bong bowls, bangers typically have an angle that you need to pay attention to as well. The angle corresponds to the angle of your piece/rig. Typically they only come in the 45-degree angle and the 90-degree angle So remember, when purchasing a quartz banger think about what size, and angle you want before you buy. This will save you from unneeded stress in the future.
What is a downstem?
Downstems are a component of the bong. The downstem is a glass stem that connects the bong bowl, to the bong itself. Typically they are made out of borosilicate glass, and have a few little slots cut into the bottom of them. These little slots provide diffusion for your rips. The whole purpose of a bong is to diffuse your rip. Introducing air into the water that filters the smoke from your rips. This whole process cools your rip down making it a much smoother experience.
The downstem is a part of the bong that often gets forgotten about... until it breaks that is. Without a downstem, you might have some luck using your bong, but it won’t be anything near its full potential. Downstems come in many different sizes so it is important to know the length that you require when purchasing. If your downstem is too long, it will hit against the base of the bong, preventing it from fully sealing. If your downstem is too small it may still seal but it will sit far above the ideal water level.
So as you can see it is very important to consider the size and length of your bong downstem before purchasing. If you are unsure about what length is best for your setup, feel free to reach out to us and we will help you as best we can. Our goal is to give you an effortless shopping experience, so let us know how we can help you achieve that!
How to clean a bong bowl & downstem?
There are many ways to keep a bong bowl clean ranging from rubbing alcohol to all natural cleaning solutions. Because of their size they are easy to clean but cleaning them often as there is nothing worse than a mouthful of resin.
