Why Use Percolator Bongs?


These days, you’ll find people who smoke cannabis the old-fashioned way, using nothing but speciality smoking paper. And then there are those who use bowls, pipes, vaporizers, and basic bongs. And then there are those who make use of percolator bongs. And if you are interested in trying out the latter for yourself, you’ll be able to find a ton of them online.

A percolator bong is a traditional bong equipped with a special apparatus, the percolator. Aside from the filtration and purification of smoke that happens when the smoke reaches the first water bath, it goes through a second purification and cooling process as it passes through the percolator before the smoke reaches your lips.

Aside from the cooler and cleaner puff of smoke, there are scientists that actually studied how these percolators work and came to the conclusion that they have the ability to filter the carcinogens in the cannabis and deliver smoke of a thicker quality. These significantly enhance the smoking experience for cannabis consumers.

Without proper filtration and cooling, the kind of cannabis smoke that a user receives can cause coughing due to the ash content. With a percolator in a water bong, there are two filtration processes that the smoke goes through thereby providing the smoker with a creamier hit. The best part is that since THC is not soluble in water, the double filtration method does not affect the overall hit. And unlike vaporizers that tend to alter the taste of the cannabis smoke, percolators don’t mess with the flavor one bit.

There are different kinds of percolator bongs that you’ll be able to find online. And there are a number of reliable retailers that you can work with on the Internet. Some of the most popular percolator bongs today are the dome, honeycomb, and tree percolator varieties. Here are some of the things that you can expect from each particular type.

The tree percolator comes with anywhere from six to sixty-four arms. Basically, having more arms on the apparatus increases diffusion levels. Each arm carries slits on the sides and this is where the smoke passes through. The slits help create more bubbles and this significantly increases diffusion in the chamber.

As for the dome, you have small holes scattered throughout the percolator. With the honeycomb variety, the percolator looks like a disc with multiple holes that are larger in size but these two functions in the same way as the first one, improving diffusion and filtration whenever the bong is in use.

If you already have a water bong at home, you can amp it up with a percolator and turn it into a percolator bong. Choose from a wide variety of percolators online and go with the one that appeals to you in terms of style. They make all look different, some with slits, others with holes or swirls, but serve a similar purpose of providing you with a smoother and cleaner hit of smoke.


Should you buy your granny a vaporizer

buy a vaporizer

In a recent post by The guardian they state cannabis could be used to treat period pain, derp. It is well known that cannabis offers pain relief, which is why every granny with arthritis should be sitting at home using a vaporizer.

In some, more socially advanced, countries medicinal cannabis is given to many elderly people to help with pain. They were once told to smoke it but these days doctors are quick to recommend a vape instead.

I just purchased a pen vaporizer

and I am in love! Everyone who reads my blog is fully aware of my love for taking big smokey hits from my water pipe, I don’t recall ever even mentioning vaping. Truthfully I have been avoiding using one for a long time due to being stuck in my ways. But last week, thanks to my pal Tom who just that day had been to a vaporizer shop, I finally give the old vape a whirl.


I never bothered before for a few main reasons:
1. I was sure the high would be much weaker, if effective at all?
2. Being reliant on electric would get annoying.

I was really wrong though. Because I was arrogant I over did the vape at first and was pretty much blown away after a few minutes! I was taken by surprise to say the least. The charge held for much longer than I expected too, and with the option to charge via a usb port it was easy enough to keep the juice up. The interesting thing is, the high was strong but it was quite different than the feeling you get from a joint or bong. There are less ganja chemicals taken in by vaping so that would be why, but the overall effect was just as relaxing and chill, but maybe with a slightly clearer head than usual.

With all things considered I was already pretty keen to make a purchase myself, and with hotels not allowing us to smoke weed this seemed like the perfect way around.

I really can’t recommend these products enough, all my readers should buy a pen vaporizer and give them a try, I’m very thankful I finally did.

New generation of water pipes

It amazes me how much the cannabis niche can develop in such a short time. Since the last time I posted about bongs and pipes there have been even more advances in functionality and style. In paticular, lemonsmoke has come out with a whole range of never seen before pipes and gadgets. When I first went over I was amazed at the amount of filters they had, with over 30 different types of percolators alone, they really have a giant selection that will cater to every smokers taste. Even if you do not want to splash out and get something too fancy, there will still be a nice range of cheaper options for you to browse through. I myself spent a good hour in awe just clicking through them all!

cool bongs

One type of pipe they stock really grabbed my attention, it was the ‘cool’ type that included a closed water chamber that surounds the outer glass wall. The smoke does not directly filter through, it passes through via a glass tube. But the idea is to leave this bong in a fridge or freezer allowing the water to get really cold. After that you add your water as normal for filtering purposes. After the normal filter proccess the smoke passes through the extra cold or frozen chamber, making a drastic difference in temperature. You can buy water pipes online in many different places, just have a browse around!

There has never been a more impressive collection of pipes, If you are an avid collector or a potential new comer, there has never been a better time to buy a bong. View some of the documented points here and you will see that even though the herb is a precious gift, you should still take care with smoking it. I prefer edibles myself, but when I do smoke I am sure to use a bong as a filtering device.

girl stoner

Sometimes I find it really hard to smoke as I cough very easily and I roll my joints purely with herbs and no added tobacco. Now I know I am not alone with having my problem with coughing and to be honest it can be embarrassing when you are trying to smoke with friends and it looks like you can’t handle your smoke.

But I have found a way to help stop coughing and it involves a slightly different way of smoking with bongs. You have most likely seen what I’m going to advise in lots of Stoner films and the name of this smoking tool is the ‘bong’. Using bongs will not always solve your problems and you should actually look to buy bongs that include a special type of percolator or diffuser downstem. You can buy bong downstem that includes a diffuser for cheap prices.

The bongs looks just like a vase in the way that it is a cylinder shape and made from glass. Here are a couple of really awesome Stoner films that you can see references to the bong in:

Are bongs the best way to enjoy herbs?

stonersMe and my friend have always argued about what is the best way to smoke herbs. I have always said and always stuck to my claims that using bongs, preferably glass bongs, is by far the best way to inhale herbs. But my friend on the other hand thinks the best way to smoke is the classic joints with a rolling paper! I laugh at him every time as it is really obvious that cooling smoke with water is going to give some heavy benefits over inhaling hot smoke straight out of a joint. He once tried to claim that THC can be removed by water but I do not believe this at all, I think it is just a rumour that got out of hand thanks to internet trolls!

But do not get me wrong, I do enjoy using joints but the cool smooth blast that you received from a bong is so much nicer. I believe that you should always do what you can to remain healthier and inhaling cold smoke over hot smoke is a much better deal on the lungs.

But I am interested in knowing what my readers think, I am going to start a poll so if you care to vote we can put this argument to rest!


double percolator bong

Percolator Bongs give a stronger hit

Based on the smoker’s lung capacity and the size of the percolator bongs chamber, the smoker is able to take a substantially larger hit when using a percolator bong than other conventional methods, such as: spliffs and joints. Not only is the capacity greater in this instance, the magnitude of the hit is also substantially higher without the wasting of herbs.


By allowing the smoke to be cooled right before inhalation, the particles become more palatable and are able to be more deeply and quickly inhaled into the lungs than other traditional methods. This cooling effect also allows for the stimulation of active properties inside the herbs being smoked, and allows the smoker to reap more value for their money than other methods which simply waste away the substance when it is openly burnt in the atmosphere. You can even modify percolator bongs with glass bowls.


Believe it or not, bubbles are your friends when smoking throug a percolator bong, and may even be classified as your protector. What actually happens when you see all that bubbling taking place is that the smoke is being cooled, so as to diminish the risk of being burnt by smoke particles in the throat and lungs. Furthermore, the water also traps the heavier particles and molecules, preventing them from entering your lungs.


When most herbs are vaporised, they have the potential to provide faster relief to individuals as the active compounds may be absorbed in a matter of seconds as opposed to waiting for digestion and other processes to occur. When these operative ingredients are readily introduced, they have the opportunity to soothe pains and aches within a shorter time frame without having to stimulate other bodily processes.


Because of the allowance of inhaling vapor in shorter and shallower puffs, as opposed to enduring high volumes of toxic treatments, individuals generally favour vaporised treatments due to its convenience and the fact that they are better able to gage and manage how much medicinal herbs they use. Patients who have used various combinations have reported less discomfort due to side effects after using bongs.

Buy Bong Bowls

glass bong bowl

Going to buy bong bowls is not as hard as it looks. Despite the array of choices, the truth is that the sizes only fall into three different categories: small, medium, and large.

Information on Buying a Bong Bowl

Typically however, you’ll find sizing that are more specific in the range of 12mm, 14m, and 19mm. If you own a regular bong, then chances are your bowl fits within any of these three categories. The problem comes when you own a customized bong with a bowl that is specially designed for that particular item. That being the case, the bong bowl will be custom fitted with the downstem where it attaches.

Size of the Bowl for Bong

The bowl is where you put the weed in so it may vary in size. If you like long and powerful hits, then you’ll likely look for a big bong bowl. Others however, may prefer something smaller or of a standard size. Either way, what’s important when it comes to buy bong bowls is the fit from the joint to the downpipe. It’s important that they lock in perfectly together, therefore preventing any smoke from flying out and becoming wasted. As a general rule, the larger the size of the bowl – the more smoking you can fit in each session before there’s a need to replace the weed.

Male and Female Bong Bowl

Bong bowls also come into two categories: the male and female types. Currently, the most common type you’d find would be male bowl fittings to match the female portion of the bong itself. Nowadays however, it seems as though more and more bongs are being made with male portions, hence the sudden need for female bowl fittings.

Now, this is something you can’t easily change unless you’re willing to purchase a whole new bong. Make sure to check the kind of fitting you have for your bong before buying a bowl. No matter how good the design looks, if it doesn’t correspond with your desired fitting, then it wouldn’t work at all.

Design and Material

bong bowls

Like downstems, you’ll find that bong bowls also come with different styles and material. The most common is glass, although it’s not unusual to find metal bowls and even wooden ones, depending on the material of the bong itself. If you’re buying a separate bowl, it makes sense to match it with the material of the bong you currently own.

All in all, buying a bong bowl is not that hard and thanks to the internet – incredibly fun. Through internet sites, you’ll be able to find the perfect bowl you want to make each weed hit fun. It’s usually a good idea to have spare bong bowls lying around, just in case something happens to the one you’re using.

Drawing the Line between What’s Allowed and Not When Buying Cannabis Seeds

One of the most controversial plants today, as we all know, is the marijuana. The name itself seems to attract trouble as it is the source of “weed” which is generally a banned substance in almost all countries. Aside from its addicting properties which earned it its bad reputation, there are many benefits that could be derived out of this plant. Yes, we are talking about the medical and recreational benefits which became the basis of some countries and territories to legalize cannabis use and cultivation. One of the most sought after products from this plant are cannabis seeds.

Where to buy cannabis seeds

These seeds are used in producing an after-product called hemp which is valuable for medicinal and recreational users in a variety of ways. Hemp can be used in cooking, treating some medical conditions, and producing some very unusual products (like rope, hemp oil, and fuel). Of course, there are buyers who purchase these seeds for the purpose of cultivation. You can buy some cheap marijuana seeds in many places online.
Now, the main issue that prospective buyers will always be worried about is the legality of buying such seeds. Laws regarding the use, possession, and sale of cannabis plant and/or its parts vary according to country, state, and territory. As of 2015, selected states in the US have decriminalized use of marijuana which includes cannabis seeds of course.
Use, possession, cultivation, sale, and trafficking carries varied penalties by state too. As an example, in Alabama, violations could start off from being a simple misdemeanor to a felony. Penalties range from a fine of $2000 to $1,000,000 and a jail time of 1 to 10 years. In Arkansas fines and jail times are less.
Buying these seeds online has become a lot easier nowadays. However, it is important that a buyer knows the boundary between what is allowed and not during purchases. To skip off discussions regarding complicated laws regarding marijuana purchases, there is one rule that must be remembered. Buying seeds is legal as long as the buyer can attest that it will not be used for cultivation purposes.
Online sellers are often seen highlighting this fact on their web pages. In addition to this, they make sure that the purchasing process includes a stage wherein the buyer claims responsibility for his or her actions. Buyers are also reminded to check with their local laws in order to see how far they can go regarding the purchase of cannabis seeds. With these things kept in check, anybody can enjoy peace of mind when placing orders for these seeds from online sellers.
