While bongs have traditionally been made of glass, one persistent annoyance is that they have always been prone to breaking. Glass is typically fragile; hence you have to be extremely careful with it – especially when taking it out with you. However, the emergence of silicone bongs in recent times has given smokers a new and more durable alternative. Silicone bongs are unbreakable and therefore very portable, easier to clean and available in many different designs. Here are a few in-depth reasons as to why silicone bongs are a great choice for smokers and why they are now preferable to glass bongs.
Silicone bongs are lightweight, small and long-lasting. Usually around a foot high and weighing in at around one pound, they are easy to hold and smoke from, aided also by their ergonomic design.
As regular smokers will be well aware, cleaning out a bong can be quite a lengthy process that requires a lot of care and attention. There are none of these worries with a silicone bong as they are dishwasher safe. You don’t have to fiddle around with heating your bong to dislodge resin, or spend money cleaning it with alcohol. You can simply put it in the dishwasher and give your unbreakable bong a thorough wash. For inexperienced smokers, it’s easy to see why an indestructible bong is appealing. And, the bendy material allows you to get to otherwise tricky areas of the bong, if there is any resin that doesn’t come off when washing the bong.
Moreover, when you have had a smoke your co-ordination sometimes suffers and you can become a little bit clumsy. The last thing you need around you is something breakable like glass. With a silicone bong, there’s no danger of this. They often come with a suction cap which allows you to stand your bong up on a flat surface when you are not using it. Even if you happen to drop it, it isn’t going to break.
If you like chilling out with a smoke on holiday, you probably know that taking a glass bong with you is pretty stressful as you always have to be wary of breaking it. These fears are quelled with an unbreakable water pipe – just shove it in your bag and take it around with you. It will always be ready when you need it. Silicone bongs are also bendy so you can fold it up if you’re limited for space. The stems and the glass bowl are the only parts that are non-silicone, but these are easily removable so you can keep them in a safe place when not using your bong.
In fact, you can keep them in the ice catch which is also removable. The ice catch is essential in keeping the smoke cold which makes it much more pleasant.
The silicone water pipes offered by Strong Silicone are also completely safe. The silicone is BPA free and the silicone used has been clarified as 100% safe and non-toxic by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Additional peace of mind is provided thanks to the lifetime warranty offered on Strong Silicone’s products.
It’s worth noting that smoking with a silicone water pipe is very enjoyable and in no way a second-best option. If smoking expensive marijuana, it’s only natural that you want to get the purest and most flavorsome experience that you can.
For many, smoking is a very personal thing and smokers like to have a product that means something to them. Therefore, silicone bongs are great as they come in many different colors – as seen by the wide range of products on offer from Strong Silicone.
Ultimately, there are plenty of advantages to smoking with an indestructible bong, yet the fact that they are much sturdier is the overwhelming one. Take the risks out of your smoking and save money in the long run by investing in a silicone bong – since there is so little hassle involved, it’s a very cost-effective route long-term.
