How To Properly Maintain Your Bong Or Waterpipe

A water pipe is a device used to smoke or vaporize substances, usually tobacco, medicinal cannabis, or other herbs. The device consists of a container, usually acrylic or glass, with a bowl and stem (or downstem), and is filled with water.

For most people who smoke out of them, bongs are more than just smoking instruments. They’re also decorative items that can add to the ambiance of any room, and can become a vital piece of any tokers personality. But over time, they can become dirty and/or smelly from the build-up of tar residue on the inside of the glass, as well as from accumulated resin on the outside of the bowl and stem.
