The bong is one of the more classic methods of smoking cannabis and has endeared itself to most cannabis connoisseurs around the world. If you ever really want to taste the strain you are smoking, a quality bong is what you need! The demand for smooth-smoking bongs grew exponentially over the years.
With such a high demand for quality glass, an entirely separate industry from cannabis was born.
