How to Make a Gravity Bong: Our Smoke Shop’s Top Tricks

Updated on September 22nd 2023

A gravity bong is kind of like waterboarding for stoners, only better because it shreds your consciousness in a positive rather than negative way. With a gravity bong, a couple of bottles, H2O, and the laws of physics are used to produce Olympian rips that transport the stoner to previously unheard-of heights of THC-driven delight.

No one here at the online head shop knows exactly who came up with the gravity bong but it was obviously someone with a keen knowledge of both hydrology and stonology. Because bottles take many different shapes and sizes, gravity bongs (sometimes referred to as “geebs”) also take on myriad forms. But no matter the form, the principle behind this most creative of stoner innovations remains the same.

Seven Ways to Grind Without a Grinder

You can’t just take whole buds, stuff them into the bowl of a bong and fire them up. Well, you can. They’re your buds and you can do what you want with them.

Five Myths Associated with Buying from an Online Smoke Shop

Updated on July 19th 2023

Chances are, if you’ve smoked using a bong, you’ve also called it – or heard others call it – a water pipe. Same thing, both names a longstanding part of smoking culture. Call it what you will, it’s one of the most commonly used smoking implements amongst cannabis aficionados and has been since its humble 16th century birth in China the waning days of the Ming Dynasty.
A classic bong is made of different materials, like acrylic and glass. It entails an open pipe that’s fixed to a water chamber. An inlet is linked to the chamber allowing you to breathe in the tasty smoke. When the dried herb of choice is set and lit inside the bong’s bowl, the smoke cools and filters through the clean water before it is inhaled.
Why buy a bong from an online smoke shop? Because they’re reliable and practical smoking implements and a reputable online retailer won’t steer you wrong. Unlike other devices, a bong doesn’t need a rechargeable battery to work. Another big reason? The water inside the bong processes the smoke initially, eliminating impurities before you take a hit. Many people say hits are stronger and smoother, perfect for long sessions. Finally, it’s easy to clean and use.

Montana’s Fight to Legalize Recreational Cannabis

Updated on July 19th 2023

Understandably, COVID-19 complicated the process of legalizing cannabis for states that have yet to do so. While more than two thirds of American States legalized the sale and use of cannabis for medicinal and/or recreational purposes before the pandemic’s onset, other states were slower to reach this milestone. Many advocates remained undeterred by obstacles to the legalization process. Unfortunately, social distancing created unprecedented barriers which undoubtedly complicated the road to cannabis legalization for many U.S. states. Cannabis-related campaigns stalled or stopped altogether in many locations stalled or stopped altogether in the months preceding 2020’s election – including those in Idaho, Ohio, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Nebraska. Advocates in these affected areas announced their resolution to continue legalization efforts in 2021. Other states weren’t so easily deterred by the unexpected virus – including the historically right-leaning state of Montana, where advocates continued working tirelessly toward cannabis legalization in the coming year.
