How to Use a Bong, for Dummies

How to Use a Bong, for Dummies

Welcome, dummies! If you're reading this, chances are you've recently purchased a bong and have absolutely no idea how to use it. Or, maybe you've been tasked with cleaning your friend's bong and are feeling lost. Either way, you've come to the right place. This blog post will teach you everything you need to know about using a bong, from packing the bowl to clearing the chamber. Let's get started!


First things first: what even is a bong? A bong is a water pipe that is used to smoke tobacco, cannabis, or other substances. Bongs come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they use water to filter and cool the smoke before it is inhaled.Now that we know what a bong is, let's talk about how to use one.

Packing the Bowl: The first step is packing the bowl. For those of you who don't know, the bowl is the part of the bong where you put your tobacco or cannabis. To pack the bowl, simply take your substance of choice and break it up into small pieces. Once you've done that, put the pieces into the bowl and pack them down gently with your fingers. Make sure not to pack them too tightly—you want there to be some air flow so that the smoke can easily travel up the chamber.

Lighting the Bowl: Now that the bowl is packed, it's time to light it! Take your lighter and hold the flame about an inch above the bowl. Slowly start drawing in air through the mouthpiece while simultaneously holding down the carb (more on that later). As you do this, move the flame closer and closer to the bowl until you see the substance start to glow red and smoke starts to form. Once this happens, you can release the carb and inhale through the mouthpiece. Enjoy!

Clearing The Chamber: The final step is clearing the chamber. The chamber is where smoke accumulates after it has been drawn through the water and filtered. To clear it, simply take your finger off of the carb (again, more on that later) and inhale until all of the smoke has been cleared out. Congratulations—you've just used a bong!


We hope this guide was helpful in teaching you how to use a bong! Remember, practice makes perfect—so don't get discouraged if it takes a few tries before you get it right. And if you're still feeling lost after reading this guide, don't worry—just ask a friend for help or watch a tutorial online. Happy smoking!
