Finding the Right Smoking Accessory for You


Buying any sort of large smoking accessory is a big decision that all starts with quality. When it comes to your piece, it definitely makes sense to buy quality instead of trying to save your money. A quality smoking accessory that is made out of high-quality materials will greatly enhance your entire experience.

Although it’s true that setting a higher budget will help weed out some of the lower quality accessory, there will still be plenty to choose from!

Of course you should consider functionality, but you should also consider style. Here are a few different style options that offer slightly different experiences.

Dab Rigs

Dab rigs look a lot like regular bongs, and in some ways, they are very similar. Many dab rigs are often mistaken for a traditional bong, but the experience of using one is very different.

A dab rig is meant to deliver cannabis in concentrated forms that include:

  • Oil
  • Shatter
  • Wax

In contrast, a traditional bong is meant for smoking a dry herb that is packed into the bowl and lit with a flame. Dab rigs use a nail instead of a bowl which is then heated from underneath.

The biggest benefit of using a dab rig is that it can deliver a higher high. It also means leaving a lot less marijuana around.

Percolator Smoking Accessories

Percolator bongs look like a lot of fun because they feature a cool bubbling effect as the smoke comes out of the bong. That’s because a piece of glass dissipates the smoke before it passes through the water.

Many smokers swear by percolators because they spread the smoke out over a larger area. That allows it to filter better and cool a lot faster than the smoke from traditional bongs.

Straight Tube Smoking Accessories

Minimalism is catching on because it can have an immensely positive impact on your quality of life. For minimalist pot smokers, that means choosing a streamlined bong design.

Straight tube bongs are the simplest design you can get. They feature a single, straight tube that is sealed at one end with a stem and a bowl that juts out of the side. Pour some water into the tube, place your herb in the bowl, and smoke. It’s the best choice for people who don’t want to complicate the smoking experience.

Beaker Smoking Accessories

Beaker bongs offer the same simple smoking experience as straight tube bongs, but they’re a lot sturdier since the base is larger.

The addition of a base also means there’s more opportunity for design details. A beaker bong may be rounded, triangular, or even squared at the bottom, providing a little bit more interest than just a plain straight tube bong.

That’s not all. You can also choose between glass, silicone, and even bamboo! Don’t be afraid to ask for advice, and see if you can try a few different kinds before you make a purchase. That way you can ensure you buy the right style for you.
