Bong Size Guide and Choosing Your Next Bong

Grav Wide Base Bong

As we dive into November, straight into the winter months, you might be wondering if it’s time to switch up your favorite smoking method. Maybe you’re just looking for something smoother or perhaps the rain has already given you a hard time when you’ve tried to light up a joint in the cold weather.

Sometimes even huddling under a tree isn’t enough when you’re trying to get that spark. That surely doesn’t mean to give up on seeing Mary Jane, it just means it’s time to switch it up with a bong in your size.

When it comes to smoking weed, most of the times it’s not a one-size fits all. Beginners might be better off sticking with pipes and joints before deciding to buy a bong, but hey,
sometimes you just have to go for it. And if you’ve already been thinking about buying a bong you probably already have a list of questions by your side, most of them revolving around, “what bong should I buy?”

In this post we’ll go over different bong sizes and everything you need to know before sparking up indoors with your own bong, including what bong you should buy as a beginner stoner, intermediate toker, or advanced cannaseur.

So, if you want something larger that packs a bigger punch or want a smaller bong for controlled hits keep on reading because this guide is for you.

Here’s a quick list of benefits for smoking with a bong:

1. Cleaner smoke

There’s a reason your bong uses water and that’s to filter and cool your smoke. Bongs reduce the number of carcinogens you inhale and help provide smooth hits for less
irritation. You’ll love the cooling sensation that enters your throat and lungs!

2. Heavier more intense hits

Regardless of the size, smoking out of a bong will give you heavier and more intense hits. But if you want bigger hits, then a bigger bong is for you.

3. Convenient and reusable

Unlike joints and blunts, with bongs all you need is some water and some bud to keep on ripping. Whether you’re at the beach or staying in, the hits will keep on keeping on!

Now let’s get this show on the road.

Small Sized Bongs- Beginner Stoners

If you’ve just started smoking and don’t have the tolerance for monster-sized hits, you’re going to want to buy a bong on the smaller size. Now don’t worry you won’t be losing any of the bong benefits because many still come with percolators and other cool add-ons.

Here’s a great 6” hourglass shower head mini bong for smooth and cool hits that are always the perfect size. And being a bong under $50 not only saves your more money in your pocket, but also delivers the perfect sized hits you’ll love every session!

Medium-sized Bongs- Intermediate Tokers

Welcome all those tokers who have been puffing for a while! You probably already have a bong but are looking to upgrade to a newer bong.

First bong you’ll want to check out is this 8” Beaker bong with thick borosilicate glass and an ice catcher for extra cooled hits. Honestly, the ice catcher will completely change you smoking experience but the beaker shape also allows for a decent sized hit for the tokers looking to get a mouth full.

This glass masterpiece is also a bong under $50 so you don’t have to break the bank!

Next is a bong that stands 8” tall but sure as hell packs a bunch because of its wide base design. Here’s a perfect example of “bigger bong, bigger hit” but in this case the wide base is what packs the punch. Another masterpiece created by Grav Labs!

Here it is:

We’re also including the Grav Medium Straight Tube Bong because it has medium in it’s name. Although, this sized bong (12”) can definitely be considered as a large-sized bong.

What’s great about this tall beauty is not only the diffused down stem for smooth hits but also its ice rank for an extra chill.

Large-sized bongs – Advanced Cannaseurs

Here we go- this is were the self-proclaimed cannaseurs should be starting out in their journey. Now these large-sized bongs are probably bigger than you expect. The reason I say that is because you’ll probably be thinking of clever ways to transport it to your friend’s house or on a road trip.

This hourglass bong may only be 10” tall in comparison to the previous bong in this post, but it’s recycling function and open space will give you a monster of a hit. This is definitely a bong you’re going to love watching as the smoke recycles and the bong delivers potent and intense hits.

This is definitely a bong you’re going to want to build up to. Check it out:
