Bubblers vs. Bongs, differences and making the perfect smoking choice

Happy December stoners and friends! We’re in the last bit of year and we’re still down here cranking out the presents your loved ones are ordering for your stocking stuffers and techy stoner gifts!

This time we’re back with a quick match between two glass wonders, bubblers vs. bongs.

Just in time for Christmas, you’ll be able to get your stoner boyfriend the perfect gift for just being him. A bong or a bubbler, some bud, and maybe a carb cap for getting the show extra milky!

So, for the perfect smoking choice, whether it’s for you or someone you love keep on reading to learn about the differences in these featured glass pipes.


To get started, a bubbler is a hybrid glass pipe that is like a bong and a hand pipe put together. Typically, they’re hand-sized but some are larger, with the same smooth hits and clean smoke you’d get from a bong.

Designed with water filtration in mind, bubblers, also known as chubblers & spubblers, clean and filter smoke by creating bubbles when you’re pulling.

So what’s a bubbler high like?

It’s similar to a bong, just much less. Intense, but manageable especially if you’re taking smaller hits. You can’t go wrong with a bubbler.

Pros of a simple bubbler for stoner travelers

A bubbler is the perfect size for on-the-go stoners who like to keep it simple and travel friendly. They’re also the perfect size for someone who doesn’t smoke too often but still likes to get lit from time to time.

Bubblers are popular because they provide water filtration and smooth hits on the go. Traveling with cannabis isn’t always easy but with a bubbler it’s simple.

All you need on your travels is bud, water, a lighter, your bubble and you’re set. The bubbles will do the rest.

Styles and Shapes

Many stoners love bubblers because of their different styles. The shape of a bubbler actually changes the smoking experience. For that reason, some popular bubbler styles are the Sherlock Pipe for smoking classy, the pendant for easy portability, the Hammer Pipe for a stationary smoke, and the Sidecar for no water splash-back.

Here are a few great options for bubblers

Death Row Records Bubbler Pipe

The Death Row Records Bubbler is definitely a pipe you won’t to have among your cannabis accessories. Designed as a bong and a spoon pipe in one, this pipe keeps your weed hitting smooth wherever you decide to go.

At only 5” long you can pack this bubbler in your side pocket and become a stoner legend yourself.

GRAV Labs Bubbler Water Pipe

This larger bubbler features a diffused down stem for the smoothest hits at your desk. Hide this one from the boss because at 7” tall someone’s going to visit space!

The Grav Labs bubbler comes with a 14mm cup bowl for packing your favorite strains whether you’re on the go or in the comfort of your couch.

GRAV Labs Pocket Bubbler Hand Pipe

Another bubbler from Grav Labs is perfect from going from your hand to your pocket. Also 5” tall, this hand pipe is perfect for a 10mm flower bowl (that comes included), a 10mm quartz banger for oil, and can even be used a joint & blunt bubbler.


Often times, stoners that have been smoking for a while decide to buy a bong they pack a bigger punch and are known as a glass power house. Big or small.

So, if your tolerance has been acting up then maybe it’s time to switch it up with a bong in your size. If you’re a beginner, the bubblers and joints are a good place to start otherwise keep on!

Pros of smoking from a bong and all you need to know

Water filtration for Cleaner smoke sessions

Bongs are great because they filter and cool your smoke before inhaling. They help make even larger than normal sized hits feel manageable.

If you want the best bong session, choose the perfect bong that comes with a percolator to elevate your smoking experience. Better cooling and filtration to go easy on your throat and lungs!

Heavier hits and intensity

A small bong can still pack a punch and if you decide to ramp it up with a larger bong you’re in for a ride. But if you want bigger hits a bigger bong is that way to go.

One of the great things about bongs is the ability to control how much smoke you take in without and loss. Simply take your hit and the rest stays trapped inside for the next person to clear.

Here’s your chance to purchase a bong this holiday. Skip out on the lines at the dispensary and order your bongs for sale online from Cannabox.

Here are some great options for bongs for this holiday season.

Grav Labs Helix Straight Base Bong

The Helix bong is 9” tall and has a built-in diffused down stem. The neck is pinched which allows the smoke to create a tornado. This instantly cools the smoke before it reaches your mouth and takes you into another realm.

Grav Small Round Base Water Pipe Bong

The Grav small water pipe bong has a round base for holding more smoke. Really, this bong is designed for the true cannaseur that is ready to be lifted off into glory.
