The Best Bong Bowls: What Makes A Good Bong Bowl?

The Best Bowls for Bongs

A bong bowl is an essential part of your bong. Without a bowl, the whole bong doesn't work. A bong bowl holds ground weed so that it can be combusted and filtered by the bong. The bowl sits within the joint of the bong, where it forms an airtight seal to help cause combustion.

When shopping for the best bowl for your bong, there are numerous factors you need to consider— the most common being the joint size and type of your bong. The last thing you want is to get a slide bowl that's not compatible with your water pipe. So be sure to measure your bong's joint size.

How much weed you can fit in your bowl is essential. If you want larger smoke seshes, then a bigger and even deeper slide bowl is a great choice. A party bowl allows you and your friends to smoke without having to repack the bowl several times. However, if you plan on having solo sessions, then a smaller weed bowl is ideal. Lastly, you should consider the visual style of the bowl. A pipe bowl that perfectly matches the look of your bong can tie the whole thing together.

It’s a good idea to own more than one weed bowl. You can choose a bowl for each bong you have or have a collection of backup bowls that are the same. Plus, depending on the occasion, a different weed bowl can be ideal. For instance, if numerous people use it simultaneously, you may need a deeper and larger bowl than the one you use while alone. It’s nice to have extra bowls if you are smoking them back to back. Also, you can have more than one loaded and just swap in the other for an intense session.
