A bong is usually a glass, ceramic, or plastic apparatus that is used to smoke cannabis flowers, herbal extracts, or tobacco. A bong, similar to a hookah, filters smoke through water so that it may be cooled before it is inhaled. In its simplest form, a bong consists of a bowl and a stem, but as the complexity and artisanship increases and the bong becomes more sophisticated, ash catchers, ice holders, and percolators may be incorporated. These additional “contraptions” are intended to further purify and cleanse the smoke. The bong is a staple in any stoner’s glass collection.
