Whether you’re a vaping vet or an absolute beginner there’s one issue you can’t ignore: how to keep your vape juice fresh and enjoyable. Vape juice is pretty simple stuff, typically comprised of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, some type of flavoring (either natural or artificial) and, in some cases, nicotine.
For many people, the bong is the ultimate vehicle for enjoying their favorite herb. They’re easy to use, don’t require rolling, provide you with Olympic-level hits and are all the rage at parties. Not to mention that they also make good objects to zone out on after you’ve polished off a couple of bowls. But with so many different bongs on the market today it got those of us at your favorite online smoke shop to thinking: “Why have just one bong? Why not have different bongs for different occasions?” And so that’s what this article is all about: Putting together the ultimate bong collection. Enjoy.
There are certain questions that have vexed even the smartest among us since the dawn of time: Where did we come from? What happens after we die? Which is better, a glass pipe or a bong? While we don’t have definitive answers to the first two questions, our status as purveyors of custom glass pipes and bongs positions us pretty well to try and tackle the third question.
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.
We can’t speak highly enough about our Northglenn smoke shop, or our two Denver head shop locations on Colfax and Evans Avenue (near D.U.). While shopping at our pipe shops in-person has many merits, choosing to order products through an online smoke shop has some serious advantages too, including these five serious perks.

If you’re new to the smoke shop scene – or just to this method of consuming your favorite herb – follow these steps to properly load and enjoy your dry herb vaporizer.
There are so many reasons for herb smokers to love grinders. As our smoke shop team outlined in an earlier guide to grinders, a quality grinder can keep you from wasting your time, money and flower. However, a dirty grinder doesn’t do you many favors. Whether you’re a wake-and-bake stoner or purely a social smoker, your grinder can become dirty and clogged in the blink of an eye, and their one-of-a-kind form can make them unusually tricky to clean. Thankfully, our online smoke shop team has put together a few tips on the best ways to clean your grinder, so you can get back to your smoking session sooner with a clog-free grinder and an equally clear head.

Anyone who has stopped by our Northglenn or Denver smoke shops knows that we stock thousands of heady glass pieces – including hundreds of locally-made bongs and dab rigs. Still, many smoke shop visitors may still be wondering – what’s the difference between the two? Before making your next purchase, review these four key factors separating bongs from dab rigs to determine which type of smoking device is best suited to your preferences.
Little can compare to the undying love a cannabis smoker has for their favorite bong. Some stay loyal to the very first piece they purchase, enjoying the rush of memories bubbling up with every hit. Others give their heart to their top-shelf piece, won over by its impressive impact, unusually smooth hits, or intricate design. Regardless, we’ll all do whatever we can to extend the years we share with our favorite pieces and to keep them safe from harm. Water pipes and other heady glass smoking devices can unfortunately be damaged quite easily, or even shattered beyond repair, from a single fall to the floor. How can we keep our favorite bongs – and our stoner hearts – from breaking? The following four practices can go a long way toward keeping water pipes safe from harm.
