If you ever plan on upgrading your existing bong it will be important to know both its joint size and gender. Otherwise, you may wind up with a new bowl that doesn’t fit. Now you may not be aware that bongs have genders but they do. Or more specifically, the joint used to connect the bowl to the stem is either “male” or “female”. So, if you buy a new bowl or stem from our online head shop and you don’t take the gender into consideration you’ll wind up having to return it for another. Read on to learn how to identify the gender of your bong and how to measure the joint size.
When you have friends over for some friendly cannabis consumption your stash can take a big, expensive hit. Given the price of herb these days you want to make sure you get the most out of it no matter if you’re smoking alone or it’s party time. But how best to do that without seeming like you’re withholding? One answer is cornering. When we suggest cornering to customers at our Denver headshop and then explain what it is, it turns out that a lot of people are subconsciously doing it already.
If you have spent any time perusing the selection of bongs, heady glass, and other pipes in our online head shop you may come away with questions regarding the different styles of pipes. In other words, you might wind up asking yourself what is the significance of all those bong shapes. And maybe more to the point, does the shape of a bong really matter? The answer to the second question is, “Yes. The shape does matter.” The answer to the first question is more complicated, which means you’ll need to read on to learn what all those bong shapes mean.
If you’ve ever watched “Ted 2” you’re familiar with the scene where Ted, Johnny, and their lawyer Sam are discussing particularly potent pot strains including one named “How long has that van been there?” and another called “Can you help me get home?” It’s a hilarious sendup of the sometimes unpleasant reactions people have when they’ve taken too many hits off the heady glass or smoked weed that’s just too potent for their particular makeup. In this post we decided to look at steps you can take should you find yourself a little too high.
People have been smoking weed for thousands of years. The unbroken line of continuous cannabis consumption goes back to the ancient Chinese and Japanese, up through the Syrians of the 12th century and right to Napoleon’s troops who needed to find an alternative to alcohol when he invaded Muslim Egypt 200 years ago. During the 1960s and 1970s cannabis, along with the headshop, became integral parts of post-WWII youth culture and its popularity has continued to spread up to the present day where its use has become – dare we say it – mainstream.
It’s the age-old question no one seems to have a definitive answer to: is bigger better? It’s a question heard in bedrooms and boardrooms the world over and one that can apply to anything from anatomy to cars to homes and even bongs. Because bongs come in so many different sizes these days it’s something you have to consider when purchasing a new one. But before you can decide if a bigger bong is right for you, you need to understand the potential benefits of having one. So in this post, the team at Denver’s premier headshop will list and discuss those benefits.
Bongs can be expensive. There’s no doubt about that. Much of the cost is a result of the extraordinary lengths bong designers and manufacturers go to to come up with original, compelling designs. But even if manufacturers have the best intentions, expensive is still expensive and there will always be people in search of a cheap alternative. And why not? How hard can it be to produce your own homemade bong? After all, bongs are pretty simple devices with no moving parts, so it’s not like it’s rocket science. In this post, the team at our headshop in Denver will look at four homemade bong ideas you might want to try.
For 50 years, glass bongs have ruled the roost, and why not? Glass bongs are attractive, effective, and – if they’re properly cared for – durable as all get out. In recent years, however, other materials have emerged to try and claim a place at the table including acrylic, metal, and bamboo.
But one alternative material has managed to garner more attention from patrons of our Denver headshop than all the others: silicone. But why exactly is that? And are silicone bongs poised to knock glass bongs from the mountaintop after their incredible run at #1?
There’s nothing like a beautiful, well-made glass bong. The look, the feel, the monster hits. It’s enough to make you want to skip work and indulge yourself. But there’s an element to bong ownership that often goes unspoken, either because people are simply unaware of it, or because they believe its importance is overstated: cleanliness. Here at the 710 vape shop in Denver people often ask us if their bong needs to be cleaned. Our answer usually goes something like “Do you clean the plates you eat off of?”
