Everything You Need to Know About Perc Bongs & Glass Spoon Pipes

A perc bong or a percolator bong is basically a bong with extra filtration. When smoking marijuana, the smoke runs through heaps of bubbles which helps alleviate harmful contaminants intake. It also makes it way easier to inhale because the water cools down the smoke. 

There are two reasons for the cool-down process – the natural way water cools the smoke down and the other reason, the way the water slows down the smoke and cooling it off before it enters your lungs. There would be less coughing and more comfortability when using a perc bong because of the extra water filtering. 

On the other hand, glass spoon pipes are a type of small pipe that is shaped like a kitchen spoon. It is a simple pipe that has a bowl, a carburetor, and a stem. You put your favorite herb in the bowl, plug in the carburetor, and smoke. These types of pipes are usually the first pipes that people use because of their simplicity. They are easy to use for most beginning smokers. You do not need any water and it is easy to clean when you need to. 

There are many types of pipes, but this one is the easiest to use. They aren’t like perc bongs which need water and other parts to allow you to smoke from them. You just fill the pipe with what you want and smoke.

How to Use Your Perc Bong

Using this type of bong is almost the same as using the usual bong. 

  1. Filling it with water is the first thing to do, and the optimum place to add water is at the bottom chamber until the slits in the downstem are just barely covered. To prevent water from leaking out, keep the water level below the entrance. Particularly if your bong has a carb hole, do this.
  1. When you’re done, check to see if the water splashes or touches your lips as you inhale.  If you encounter this, try adjusting your water level and lighting it up once more.
  1. The only component of the bong that would take some getting used to is the water part, but other than that, it is a straightforward procedure. Fill the bowl with weed and light it. The mist forms once the plant is good and heated. Inhale it after letting it travel through the water for a clean, slick, and chilly hit.

How to Use Your Glass Spoon Pipes 

  1. Pack Your Pipe – The first thing you need to do is choose the herb that you want to use. Then you will need to break it down into small pieces. You can do this by using a grinder, scissors, or your fingers.

You will not need to have a screen if your pipe is made correctly. Using a screen will make the smoke taste metallic and it is not necessary. Place the ground herb into the bowl and smoke it that way. Do not pack it in too tight, there will be too much ash on top by the time you get to the bottom and that will change your flavor. 

  1. Hold the Carburetor – Next to the bowl is another hole – this is called the carburetor, or carb for short: https://www.leafly.com/learn/cannabis-glossary/carb. Place your finger over the carb and hold it there. You must hold the pipe in such a way that you can remove your finger when you need to. This will make it easier to release the smoke when needed. 
  1. Inhale Through the Mouthpiece and Light the Bowl – These steps need to be done at the same time. If you do not inhale when you light the bowl, you could burn your finger. You can even start inhaling before you light it, so you do not get burned. Do not inhale too hard, work your way up to that. 
  1. Release the Carb – When you inhale the pipe will be completely filled with smoke. Remove your finger from the carb so that you can release the smoke. This will cause the smoke to rush in quicker so you will need to inhale not as deeply. Make sure that you save some room in your lungs for the smoke.
