Glass Bubblers – What are they?

This week we will show you a comfortable and simple way to use a bong. First of all, to say that a bong, or also called a water pipe, is a filtering device usually used to smoke cannabis, tobacco or even other vegetable substances. It works in a similar way to a shisha, but it is smaller. It is a container with air and water, to which a smoke pipe is incorporated, and when smoking, said pipe guides the air downwards, above the level of the water, where it bubbles upwards when it is sucked up. It is one of the cleanest and easiest to use devices for smoking tobacco or another of the substances mentioned above.

The Glass Bubblers consists of an inhalation hole, which is the opening where the mouth is placed; a smoke chamber, which is the space where smoke accumulates; a diffuser or bowl; a carburettor and a lower conduit. Before explaining how this appliance is used, it is recommended that it be cleaned to have a good hygiene before starting. If we just bought it, we can skip this step, since the cleaning to which I refer is the one referring to the resin or other remains that create a sour substance, called bong water. To avoid it, we must change the water every time we go to smoke with the appliance.

When we have our bong clean, we add cold water above the bottom of the lower duct, but not above the carburettor, approximately 3 to 5 centimetres above the bottom of the lower duct. The more water touches the surface of the smoke, the softer it will get. It must also be said that some users prefer to fill the ice pipe with water, and others prefer to use very hot water so that the steam helps to hydrate the lungs. Both options are also correct.

When we have proceeded to fill the waterpipe, we will fill the bowl. Before starting, we suggest that you remove the bowl of the bong before so that it does not tip over while we are filling it. Next, we clean it, making sure that there is enough air in the bowl. Then, we exaggerate the material that we are going to smoke. We must try not to overdo it too much, as it is for example when we do it with a grinder because if the material is very thin, it could get stuck in the chamber and be extinguished before the smoke comes out. Later, we put the material that we are going to smoke in the bottom of the bowl. Finally, we place the diffuser back in the lower duct of the bong. Regarding the inhalation form, the following steps can also be established.

First of all, keep the bong on a flat surface to prevent it from falling. Then, place the mouth over the opening so that we seal with our lips the same. Later, we hold the water pipe with one hand, covering the carburettor. Also, we should keep the bowl while we inhale. We keep inhaling until the camera begins to fill with smoke, and before our lungs are at their maximum capacity, we remove the lighter from the bowl, the interior duct diffuser and our carburettor finger. Meanwhile, we hold our breath for a few seconds before exhaling.

Finally, if we are going to use the bong with a group of friends, we can also establish some rules to maintain hygiene, such as not drooling the hookah. In addition, after each inhalation, the inhalation nozzle should be cleaned with a cloth, for example. There are archaeological findings that indicate that Africans smoked cannabis long before the arrival of tobacco on their land. Initially, stacks of embers were used inside a pot buried in the ground, with the cannabis placed on top of the embers. A small hole in the earth on the “system” connected with a tube, through which one would inhale.

Cannabis smoking accessories like glass bubblers, glass bubblers and other types of pipes allow recreational users to experiment with new ways of enjoying their favourite drug while helping patients find the best routes of administration that to suit their needs. Glass Bubblers are an extremely popular piece of equipment. Combining the portability and ease-of-use of a regular glass pipe with the smooth smoking experience of a bong, glass bubblers are fast becoming staple smoking equipment.

Glass bubblers

Glass bubblers are similar to glass bubblers in that both are a type of water pipe. In fact, bubbles are kind of like a cross between a traditional glass pipe and a regular water pipe. They use both water and a percolation system to filter smoke and create soft, smooth hits like you would expect from a bong. However, in terms of shape and size, glass bubblers typically more closely resemble pipes, meaning they’re usually smaller than a regular bong and also cannot be taken apart for easy cleaning.

The anatomy of glass bubblers

Glass bubblers usually feature a mouthpiece, a bowl, and sometimes a carb hole, just like a regular dry pipe. However, the stem built around the bowl is made to hold a small amount of water, which filters and cools your smoke before you inhale it. This makes for smooth, clean hits.

How to use a bubbler

Using a bubbler is simple. Start by filling the water chamber with some cold water (the colder, the smoother your hits) then, grind up some weed as you would for a regular bong hit and pack it into the bowl piece. If your bubbler has a carb, cover it with your finger or thumb and place your mouth over the mouthpiece. Now light your bowl and draw the smoke gently but consistently into the chamber and inhale. Remove your thumb or finger from the carb and then proceed to inhale the rest of the smoke from the chamber.

Advantages of using a glass bubbler

There are some very clear advantages of using a glass bubbler.

First of all, if you like smoking with a bong, a bubbler is a perfect way to take your favourite smoking mechanism onto the road. Plus, they provide smooth hits that make for a much more enjoyable smoking experience.

Glass bubblers essentially bring together the convenience and ease-of-use of a regular glass pipe with the smooth smoking experience of a bong. They are light, durable, and easy to handle, especially for novice smokers who might not be familiar with how to use a bong.
