Immerse yourself in the smoking world: Explore our Bongs, Water Pipes and Bubblers category
The Bong, also known as a water pipe, has a long history going back thousands of years. Although its exact origin cannot be precisely determined, it is believed that the first bong-like devices emerged in some regions in Asia and Africa.
Some evidence suggests that the Babylonians in ancient Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq) used bong-like devices more than 2400 years ago. These devices were known as 'Narghile' and were used for smoking tobacco. The Narghile consisted of a base with water, an upright pipe and a mouthpiece, and it was used to enjoy smoking in social groups.
In Asia, bongs were historically associated with the opium smoking culture in China during the 16th and 17th centuries. Opium users used bamboo bongs to smoke the substance, as the water helped to cool and filter the smoke before it was inhaled. These devices were known as "Chillums".
Bongs: First class filtration and cooling for an exceptional smoking experience
As cannabis culture spread around the world, the use of bongs became popular in various cultures. In the 1970s, the bong became a symbol of the counterculture and the hippie movement, associated with the consumption of cannabis. Since then, bongs have evolved in terms of design, materials, and functionality, adapting to the preferences and needs of modern users.
Today, bongs are made in a wide variety of styles and materials, including glass, acrylic, ceramic and metal. They have become functional art objects, with elaborate designs and sophisticated percolators that provide a smooth and filtered smoking experience.
The bong has endured over the centuries as a popular way to enjoy herbs and concentrates. Its use has spread around the world, and today it is found in both recreational and therapeutic smoking culture.
Bubblers: The perfect fusion of portability and smoking quality
Bubblers are bongs in a more compact format. These devices are ideal for those who want to enjoy the filtration and cooling of smoke provided by a bong, but in a more portable and easier to use size. Bubblers have a smaller water chamber than bongs and are equipped with a bowl and mouthpiece, making them convenient for individual use. They provide a smooth and flavourful experience, ideal for those who want a more discreet smoking experience but do not want to compromise on quality.
