Bongs: The #1 Way to Smoke
Bongs have been popular with smokers for hundreds of years due to their smooth hits. The water filtering system inside the bong cools the smoldering air to allow you to enjoy rich smoke without harsh burns or coughing.
Fat Buddha’s wide range of glass bongs and pipes enables you to personalize your smoking experience, including our line of quality products. We also offer a variety of bong accessories for smokers.
What Is a Bong?
Bongs are a device used to cool and clean the smoke from cannabis, allowing you to inhale a smoother hit. Every bong will have a bowl that holds the cannabis, a downstem to carry the smoke into the water, a base for the smoke to move through, and a mouthpiece for the user to finally inhale it.
Bongs can come in many shapes, sizes, and qualities, but bongs made out of plastic or other materials may release small amounts of harmful chemicals into the smoke. That’s why Fat Buddha sells bongs made out of premium, hand-crafted glass.
Components of a Bong
A downstem is a long tube with two open ends connecting a bong to a bowl. Though the downstem is a removable part of the bong, some bongs have this as a non-removable component and are called percolator bongs. (However, it's ideal to choose bongs with a detachable downstem called a diffused downstem because it's harder to clean a percolator bong.)
A downstem comes with tiny pores which help your accessory to break up the smoke before it enters the water. When the downstem fills more bubbles, more vapor gets cooled for you to inhale as it moves to the tube.
A downstem can be made from metal, silicone or glass. If you have any questions on how to measure a downstem please contact us.
If you are looking for a cooler smoke experience, you may want to try bongs with an ice pinch. An ice pinch can give you a smoother smoking experience because the vapor that reaches your mouth is further cooled by the ice pinch layer. However, some people prefer a warm smoking experience, and an ice pinch may not be a necessity.
The last thing you want while smoking is the water to splash on your lips and spoil the whole mood. The splash guard helps give you an additional layer of water filtration. Its slits filter any water particles and send them back to the base of your water pipe.
The bong bowl is where you'll put your favorite tasty weed. They come in many different styles but most will have some kind of handle to keep you fingers from burning. There are two common joint size, 18mm & 14mm.
What to Look for When you Buy a Bong Online
You don't want to buy a bong that's too big when you have storage limitations. An oversized pipe can give you more trouble than it's worth. Mini water pipes are easy to manage and less fragile when compared to big bongs.
However, a big bong can be perfect if you are well-versed with the right techniques for holding it and using the ice pinch. If you are just a beginner, a few wrong moves could break your bong, so you better learn the art before investing in a big bong.
Smoke Flower or Concentrate?
What type of material will you be using this for? If you’re more into flower you’ll want to look at bongs that have an herb bowl and it can be any size with or without percolators. If you prefer that smooth tasty wax then you’ll want to get a smaller dab rig with minimal filtration. With the addition of some smoking accessories you can use dab rigs for flower and vice versa but definitely taking into consideration what material you’re going to be consuming the most should have a big impact on which piece you get.
When you’re choosing from different glass bongs and dab rigs, make sure they are of the highest quality. If you are a frequent traveler, we recommend going for scientific bongs, which are made to last even in harsh circumstances. Even though plastic and metal bongs are an option, they come with the risk of health problems. Also, if you are looking for a fancy smoke experience, go for glass bongs, as they are available in a variety of shapes and colors.
Matched Experience Level
You may be tempted to start with one of the expensive bongs or dab rigs, but we recommend you do a self-assessment about your experience with smoking glasses. If you consider yourself a newbie, there are plenty of great water bongs under $100.
Once you gain some experience, you can level up and buy advanced bongs with ice catchers, percs, and multiple chambers. Always keep in mind that expensive bongs and waterpipes should be your choice only when you turn into a seasoned smoker.
Fat Buddha Glass has a range of affordable bongs and water pipes. That said, even the expensive bongs and dab rigs in our collection are coming at a special price that's unmatched by the competitors. With us, you don't have to compromise on the smoking experience by buying a cheap bong, because we provide the best bongs for under $100.
Types of Bongs & Water Pipes
We know every smoker has their own style, so we have plenty of different types of bongs in all shapes and sizes. Whether you want a cheap bong or water pipe, you need a portable bong to take with you on your travels, or if you’re looking for a huge big-hitter bongs to get the strongest hits at home, we have the best selection to suit your needs.
Scientific bongs are some of the best bongs that we have here at Fat Buddha Glass.
A scientific bong is typically something more than your normal beaker bong. Most of the time, scientific bongs are larger and have more percolators.
The benefit this brings is a much smoother hit. The more water you run your smoke through, and the more percolators you have for diffusion, the smoother your rips will be!
If you are looking for a smooth experience that is full of great features, you needn't look further than our fabulous line of scientific bongs. We do our best to keep your options updated as frequently as possible, so you can take comfort that you are browsing the best bong & water pipe options on the market today!
A beaker bong has a shape similar to a beaker that scientists use in their laboratories. The rounded bottom and the slender neck of beaker bong’s body gives a unique appearance and keeps them from tipping over.
Do you love Jimi Hendrix? Rubber Duckies? Rocket Ships? No matter your taste is or your favorite color you’ll be able to find the perfect bong just for you through our wide and varied selection of colorful bongs.
Forming a connection with your piece is extremely important, and our colorful bongs are some of the unique bongs in our collection. This is why colored glass bongs are just so perfect, and our colorful water bongs allow you to have that extra level of connection through personalization.
Beginners beware. Big bongs are not for first-time use. Well, we won't tell you what to do. If you really want to try one of these massive glass water bongs for the first time, you totally can, but we advise caution because big bongs, as their name implies, are very big.
What makes a big bong so scary to rip is that you can easily fill the whole thing up with smoke without realizing you did. Then when you go to pull the bowl, you get a massive surprise.
But that is exactly what makes big bongs so great! If you are in the mood for one of those massive rips, you aren't going to get it from a standard beaker or a mini bong. You have to spring for something a little better like a big hitter bong.
Bongs have been around forever. Big glass bongs, however, are a relatively small blip on that timeline. That’s because the cannabis community is always engineering new ways to rip.
At Fat Buddha Glass, we’ve done the work to bring you the best options for massive bongs in the industry. We know you will find one here that you will fall in love with, and if you need help finding that special piece, feel free to reach out to us! That is what we are here for.
Mini bongs are the most portable and versatile option you have when it comes to finding a water pipe. The immediate benefit that is brought from the small bongs is their ability to travel.
The size of these water pipes is perfect for taking them on the go or packing up to take one to a friend's house. These little bongs are made for the adventurer in you.
Also, mini bongs are perfect if you are looking to take your smoke sessions up to the next step from joints and pipes.
Mini bongs can easily be used as dab rigs because of there size. You’ll be sure to get all that glorious flavor from that tasty honey. A more enjoyable experience is exactly what we want to be able to give to you with these cute bongs. If the thought of holding a mini bong holds a little spark in your eye, you may just have to give the mini bongs a try.
A dab rig is a very specific type of bong. Typically, you use a weed bong for flowers and a dab rig for concentrates, wax, or oil. They both have water in them and provide you with diffusion for your rips.
However, dab rigs tend to be smaller than bongs. The difference in size lends itself perfectly to what each individual medium of cannabis needs.
Dab rigs are small because when you shorten the distance between the point of vaporizing and the mouthpiece, you enhance the amount of flavor you get out of your concentrate! Another big difference between a bong and a dab rig is the attachment used. Bong bowls are used for water pipes, and quartz bangers are used for an oil rig.
Straight Tube Bongs
When a scientific water pipe or dab rig comes with a straight tube design, they are called straight tube bongs. What makes them unique is the straight design that spans from top to bottom. In most cases, straight tube bongs possess a percolation diffused in the downstem.
A silicone bong is a modern alternative to traditional glass bongs. Just like other water pipes you can smoke your favorite herbs and even concentrate but what sets it apart is the food grade silicone it's made with.
This material allows for flexibility, making these bongs virtually unbreakable and highly portable, perfect for on-the-go adventures. Additionally, silicone bongs often come in vibrant colors and unique designs, adding a touch of personality to your smoke experience. With easy-to-clean components and removable parts, maintenance is a breeze, making it a hassle-free choice for enthusiasts seeking a reliable and long-lasting smoking device.
So, whether you're a seasoned smoker or new to the world of bongs, silicone bongs are a fantastic option to explore for its durability, portability, and aesthetic appeal.
Bongs Under $100
Fat Buddha Glass was born out of our frustration with the expensive prices at local smoke shops and head shops. Functional glass bongs should be accessible to everyone of age who wants one!
To save you time, we have put together a solid list of quality bongs under $100. That way, you will be able to find something that is affordable, stylish, and functional.
On this collection page, you will find a good collection of mini bongs, big hitter bongs, colorful soft glass bongs, and many other styles of water pipes.
A bubbler water pipe typically isn't considered to be a bong, but we included them here in this list because they do provide you with water filtration for diffusion.
Bubblers are considered water pipes. Thanks to their size, bubblers are easy to take with you anywhere.
A freeze bong is filled with glycerin within it which allows you to put it in the freezer. This is going to allow you to have cool and smooth hits whenever you want it!
Using a freeze pipe is a lot like using a bong with a solid ice pinch, except for a few key differences.
When you use an ice pinch on a normal bong, the ice only stays for so long and then melts, potentially even messing up your perfect water levels.
With a freeze bong, you don't have to worry about that! Instead of melting ice making your rips nice and cool, it's the bong itself! Most freeze bongs have a removable neck that is filled with glycerin. This feature allows you to easily place the freezable neck inside your freezer.
You don’t have to love science to appreciate a good perc bong, but it's good to know what makes their hits so smooth. Essentially, the more surface area the smoke has as it moves through the water of the stem, the cleaner and cooler it's able to get. And the way to get more surface area is to turn a few big smoke bubbles into a bunch of little smoke bubbles.
If you want to make lots of little bubbles, try our quadruple percolator with its combination of honeycomb and matrix percs—or enter a dream state with this perc bong, which features a cone within a cone for optimal percolation and a smooth hit.
An ice bong is an exhilarating twist on the traditional water pipe used for smoking cannabis. It features a chamber or tube that can be filled with ice cubes, taking your smoke experience to a whole new level.
As the smoke is pulled through the ice, it is rapidly cooled, resulting in a smoother and less harsh hit on the throat and lungs. The icy coolness also helps to filter out impurities, providing a cleaner taste and potentially reducing coughing.
Ice bongs come in various sizes and designs, from compact and portable options to larger, more intricate pieces that showcase beautiful craftsmanship. So, if you're looking to elevate your smoke session and relish in icy goodness, ice bongs are a fantastic choice for a refreshing and enjoyable experience.

Why Choose Fat Buddha Glass Smoke Shop?
Fat Buddha Glass was started by two lifelong friends who have collected and used all kinds of bongs and pipes for over 2 decades. We understand that using a bong or pipe is a lot more than just something you smoke out of but, rather, it's part of the entire experience. We have used pretty much every type of pipe out there, from mini bongs to giant bongs, from percolator bongs to the classic beaker bong. After years of trying to find the perfect piece but having issues with buying a bong online we thought we could merge our passion for glass and our drive to offer the best products and service in the industry so we started Fat Buddha Glass.
All of our products are curated by our Chief Glass Enthusiast Mike Colavita. Each design is thoroughly inspected and tested before we offer them in our store.
Our products produce pure and potent blue smoke within minutes and make the entire process exceptionally easy. However, while there are tons of cheap bongs on the market, Fat Buddha Glass lets you be a buyer of quality glass bongs online at great prices.
We use the best quality material for bongs and other smoking accessories. While some get simple plastic bongs, these often provide a subpar and unhealthy smoke experience. That's why we use bongs made from borosilicate glass, which is also known as scientific glass because of its use in laboratory experiments, medical settings, and even the storage of radioactive materials. It’s also able to withstand the extreme changes in temperature that bongs go through without weakening, which means our pipes have a higher shelf life.
This also means that your Fat Buddha Glass smoking accessories are going to be a long-lasting investment. Unlike other manufacturers who mass produce low-quality pipes, our products are strong, sturdy, and easy to clean. The glass water bongs you find in stores have often collected dust over time, but not at Fat Buddha.

Bong Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Why Use a Water Bong?
People love bongs! They bring a level of smoothness to your smoke sessions that otherwise can’t be found! It can also be fun to build a connection with your bong over time. Many people prefer hand pipes or joints. That is why we recommend you try a few of everything so you know just what you want.
How much does a bong typically cost?
A typical bongs price will vary depending on factors such as the material, design, size, and brand. Bongs can be found starting from around $20 and can go up to several hundred dollars or even thousands for custom made pieces. At Fat Buddha Glass we strive to offer quality products at great values. The average bong at Fat Buddha Glass is in the $50-100 range with dozens available under $100.
How to Clean a Bong?
You’ll need to clean your bong regularly to get rid of the ash, resin, and bacteria that can build up over time. While you’ll want to empty the water after every use, you’ll also want to thoroughly clean the bong itself using alcohol or a special cleaning solution. You may also want to get pipe cleaners and other tools to wipe off spots that can be hard to reach. Remember, the longer you go without cleaning your bong, the harder it will be to clean.
How Much Water Do I Need in My Bong?
The amount of water that should go into your bong completely depends on the size and shape of your bong. This is a key thing to figure out if you are going to be able to get the perfect amount of water into your piece.
A good rule of thumb is to add water until the water level is just about your downstem. If you have percolators, fill them up until the very bottom of them is just covered in water. The key thing to look out for is getting water inside your mouth. You don't want that horrible taste to ever touch your lips. (Trust us.)
Do You Put Ice in Your Bong?
Putting ice in your water pipe is like adding an extra layer of warmth on a cold day. You don’t have to do it, but it really helps when you do.
When your smoke is cooler, your rips are smoother. This means that if you give your smoke the chance to cool off ever so slightly on some ice inside of your water bong, your rips will be smoother and you will be happier for it.
But it is important to clarify that this is not a requirement for making your bong work—or for being a bong at all. It is just an added benefit—one that really does change the game and is worth a try.
Can You Use Your Bong as a Dab Rig?
Short answer, yes! Using your bong for weed as a dab rig is entirely possible. You just need to determine the bongs joint size of and find a quality quartz banger that would fit that joint.
From there, you will need your dabbing essentials. This includes a torch, a dab tool, and a carb cap. With these things in mind, you can turn any bong into a dab rig without question.
Why Do You Have Such a Wide Collection of Glass Bongs and Water Pipes?
A water pipe is an essential investment for any smoker—but with so many quality glass bongs being inordinately expensive, we know that it can be hard for you to get hold of the premium piece they need. That’s why at Fat Buddha Glass, we offer a wide selection in every price range to suit everybody.
What Factors Decide the Cost of Smoking Accessories?
All of our glass water pipes, bongs, dab rigs, and other pieces are carefully handcrafted to give you amazing hits and last you for a long time. But high quality doesn’t have to break the bank, either—we have quality pieces for as low as $23.99. In addition to this, we also offer you free shipping on all smoking accessories, which means additional savings.
Does an Expensive Bong or Water Pipe Last Longer?
Even our least expensive glass bongs are made with high-quality material, so they’re built to last. But if you want to splash out on a luxury glass bong, we have plenty of high-end glass pieces to choose from too. Whatever type of bong you choose to smoke with, you’ll be getting a quality product at a great price—not to mention you’ll also receive free, first-class delivery.
Why Does the Shape of a Water Bong Matter?
Bongs can vary in size and have various distinctive functions and features. The glass bong and water pipe design are increasingly advanced and are viewed now as art forms. It is possible to get nearly anything from colors and designs. Get something that is a great gift for yourself.
What Is the Ideal Joint Size?
Among all bong joint sizes, 14-mm joints are the most popular. All small, medium bongs, as well as dab rigs, use 14-mm joints. You can check the joint size of your bong using a 5-cent coin. All you need to do is place it over the end of your bowl after making sure it's female.
