Bong Bowls

A bong bowl (also known as a slide) is an essential part of every bong or water pipe. These pieces sit within the joint of your water pipe and serve one important purpose: to hold the tobacco, loose leaf herb, or legal dry herb.

Bowls come in a variety of different sizes (10mm, 14mm, and 18mm) and can be either male or female. Knowing the joint size and gender of your water pipe is essential when purchasing a new slide, otherwise you may end up with a new bowl that is not compatible with your bong! For a thorough explanation of water pipe joint sizes and gender, head over to our Knowledge Base and check out this article.

Bowls are made using a variety of different glass blowing effects such as gold and silver fuming or marbles to create a unique aesthetic. Different shapes alter the size and depth of the bowl’s chamber—where you place your herbs for combustion.

Bigger and deeper bowls are suited for larger smoke seshes as they fit more herbs and prevent smokers from having to repack multiple times. Smaller bowls are ideal for single person smoke seshes where you may not need to repack. 

Check out Smoke Cartel’s collection of bong bowls if you’re looking for a new slide for your prized water pipe.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you smoke out of a bowl?

Smoking a bowl is usually done with a hand pipe, but can refer any form of igniting and inhaling dry herb (bongs, chillums, etc). The bowl itself is the round basin of the pipe.

Once you have ground your dry herb with a grinder, fill the bowl to your liking. Do not necessarily pack it as fully or tightly as possible, as this can restrict airflow.

Most pipes have a small hole on one side called a “carb.” Light the herb with a small lighter and inhale gently, plugging and releasing the carb. This controls the flow of air to the dry herb and controls the burn.

The smoke you inhale is called a “hit.” Many first-timers do not fully inhale properly and waste their hits as a result, so ensure that your breath in is deep and full. Some people recommend you hold the hit for up to 30 seconds, but this is not necessary as long as you have fully inhaled.

You may cough. This is normal and just the way it is. Even the most experienced smokers cough frequently— this is how you know you have gotten a good and proper hit.
