pipes of our collection at fantastic prices. Buy today!
Water bongs have been around for decades and are a favorite among stoners and tokers for their filtration, ease of use, and popularity. We've curated a selection of bongs for sale made from durable borosilicate glass and other high-quality, safe materials (like
silicone bongs). These sturdy glass water pipes filter fine particles from the smoke and deliver smoother cooler hits. Some bongs also offer percolators (parts) for greater diffusion, condensing, and cooling smoke even more for massive rips!
Glass bongs filter and cool, dry herbs or tobacco to provide a kinder, gentler smoking experience, often with internal percolators to create an even smoother smoke.
Before Buying A Bong Or Water Pipe
Flowers or concentrate? If you're a dry herb enthusiast, you'll want a bowl; dabbers need a
nail to get lifted. If you're into both, consider a piece with an unattached
downstem to adapt to all that the good plant has to offer. If you're looking for glass for dabbing, shop our dab
Size matters. Glass bongs come in 10mm, 14mm, or 18mm joint sizes. Not *those* joints; we're talking the glass pieces that connect the various parts of the pipe, and to make things more interesting, glass joints can be either male or female. Add in the many types of percolators, and the permutations for your new pipe are endless!
Glass can break. That's why Weedipedia offers the GlassGuard Guarantee. Protect your piece!

How to choose the right Bong?
From straightforward scientific styles such as the classic
beaker bongs to elaborate functionals like recyclers with propellor percolators, Weedipedia has an excellent selection of water pipes. Shop by perc or size to find the pipe of your dreams!
It's all about that base. Beaker bongs are classic water pipes with a wide bottom that offers increased stability and a cloud of smooth smoke. Bongs in the beaker style tend to be sturdier than their straight tube counterparts, making them less likely to be knocked off the coffee table by the cat.
Another advantage of beakers is that they hold more water and more smoke in the base, allowing larger, grander hits.
For buyers looking for a simpler or more traditional look, straight tubes and beaker base water pipes are the way to go. Not only will these designs be easier for beginners to master, but some styles also offer versatility in separate parts and accessories. Water pipes with removable downstems allow you to
switch this part with a dabbing nail or another accessory to use with other substances. Just remember to purchase an accessory that fits your water pipe joint size and shape. Straight tube water pipes will hold less water than beaker base pipes, but many users prefer the lighter weight and style.
Bubble Base Bongs
bong's bubble base style was popularized around the 1970s and is a familiar look to many. These water pipes either often come with a pedestal base or sit directly at the bubble base's flattened end. An iconic look that offers good versatility and ease of maintenance with its no-frills look.
Water pipes specifically intended for use with dabs and concentrates are called dab
rigs. These dab
rig bongs filter the water carrying the vapor up through a chamber close to the mouthpiece, release the vapor for the user to inhale while maximizing flavor and airflow since filtration is not as important as when combusting herb.
Dab Rigs tend to work with concentrates the best but can also be used with flowers and herbs.

Features of a Bong
Downstems are an essential component of water pipes. If your water pipe features a removable downstem, it’s probably a diffused downstem. These include tiny slits or holes to break up the smoke before it enters the water. The more bubbles created by the downstem, the more surface area the vapor has to cool before it enters the tube for inhalation. If your downstem is non-removable, your water pipe will probably include a type of percolator. There are many percolators on the market, such as showerhead percolators or honeycomb percolators, and you may need to experiment to find the one you like the best.
Some water pipes include an ice pinch as part of their tube design, which gives users an extra layer of cooling before the vapor reaches the mouthpiece. The pinch holds the ice in the tube part of the pipe, so you get the best cooling effect before inhalation. Some people prefer inhaling warm vapor, but an ice pinch will be a necessary pipe feature if you're a cool vapor person.
Splash guards are handy in preventing the water from the base of the pipe from reaching your lips as you inhale. The splash guard includes slits so vapor can still pass through, but the top is domed, so the water falls back into the pipe base.
How Durable Are Bongs & Water Pipes?
You might imagine a
glass bong to be a fragile thing, like a cheap glass soda bottle. While you’re certainly right to respect the limits of glass durability, all of our glass bongs are made to stand up to real-world use and are quite durable.
Glass bongs or water pipes are almost always made from super robust Borosilicate Glass. This isn’t the kind of cheap glass you get in beverage and beer bottles. This is dense, shatter-resistant glass designed for use in laboratories and chemistry experiments! However, even this space-aged Borosilicate Glass does have its limits. You always want to exercise some caution with even the thickest and most seemingly invincible bongs to be sure they don’t take a nasty fall.
If you or your friends happen to be cursed with clumsiness, you can try out some glass alternatives. We have highly affordable and nearly invincible bongs made of acrylic or exceptionally durable (and quite stylish) bamboo bongs, either of which can take many, many falls, and keep on tokin.
