Perhaps the most popular method to smoke is bongs or water pipes. Filled with water at the base to provide cooling and filtering through a down stem or additional percolators, a bong provides a far smoother hit than a traditional pipe or joint. A more filtered and smoother hit allows you to take fatter and fatter rips without the worry of being met with hot and particle-filled smoke. You can use water pipes with dry herb in a traditional bowl, or you can throw a banger or nail on one and turn it into a dab rig in seconds. But if you want to go that route, you might as well pick up a nice dab rig as well while you’re at it.
