5 Ways You Can Upgrade From Your Old Bong

As cannabis continues in its ever-forward march to freedom, a new generation of online headshops have opened their virtual doors for modern consumers.

We’ve all got old faithful – the one bong that has been with you ever since you can remember, a reliable companion in any occasion that arises.

There’s a lot to love about this lifelong bong, from its durability to its commitment to making sure you have the time of your life. However, nothing lasts forever, neither the good nor the bad.

Once this faithful companion has run its course, you’ll be wondering about how to upgrade or replace it (although the attachment is irreplaceable).

When this time comes, we recommend checking out these five options to upgrade your bong experience:

The Hitoki Trident

The Hitoki Trident is a couple of steps up from your regular, run-of-the-mill bong, for obvious reasons. First off, it uses laser combustion technology to turn your favorite flower into smoke that’s ready to get into your body (even just saying it sounds like something out of a sci-fi film). 

The Trident uses a technology that can be compared to the age-old act of using a magnifying glass to harness the power of the sun, providing a much healthier alternative to butane-filled lighters and burning away all the terpenes and flavonoids you know and love. It keeps flavor and scent true to the source, getting you high as a kite at the same time. 

It’s easy to use, and has a ton of features you’ll instantly be obsessed with: superior water filtration, multiple power settings, safety interlocks, a cool carb button, a long battery life, and an even longer lifespan.

TOQi Wireless Vaporizer

Sure, bongs are pretty cool, but it’s no secret that they can be bulky and anything but discreet – that’s why so many people are jumping over to smoking cartridges, which are portable, discreet, and pack one heck of a punch.

For those who want to change to vaping, we have to recommend the TOQi Wireless Vaporizer

There are a lot of battery extensions you can buy to power your cartridge, but this one is top-of-the-line. TOQi has crafted a revolutionary 510 wireless vaporizer that uses only the best in what technology has to offer to give you the best experience imaginable.

With a mission to innovate in the cannabis world, this Toronto-based company puts battery life, flavor, and effects at the forefront.

You can charge it super fast using the Qi charging pad or plug a charger into its USB-C port, not to mention that the battery life is worth applauding (up to 150 hits per charge!).

With superior airflow and adjustable power settings that let you personalize the experience, this is one to keep an eye out for. It’s intuitive and easy for you – no need to press buttons, just inhale and have a good trip.

The Chill Bong

More often than not, classic is the way to go. Can’t go wrong with something that has been around for a while and made crowds of people happy, so you might want to think about getting yourself a Chill Bong

Basically unbreakable due to being crafted out of stainless steel, this setup comes with everything you could want, need, and wish for: the base, neckpiece, down stem, glass bowl, and a lifetime guarantee.

It’s an outstanding statement piece, pretty enough on its own to just hang out on your desk, but we suggest you use it (duh). Every inhale hits in the right spot, cooling your lungs on the way down and letting you settle into the effects on the exhale.

Storz & Bickel Crafty +

Sometimes the really cool products seem to need a full-on hours-long course to get the hang of, which is why we’re so in love with the Storz & Bickel Crafty +: it’s super intuitive, a pleasure to look at, and makes any owner proud to have it in their hands. 

This vaporizer consistently delivers big clouds of the most stellar vapor, using a mix of conduction and convection heating to keep the flavor and scent of your favorite flower true to nature.

Like other vapor devices, it’s easily customizable thanks to its multiple power settings, and the cooling unit makes for frosty hits at every inhale.

The fast heat-up time, improved battery performance, and increased durability make it one-of-a-kind, while the superior airflow and Super-Boost activation place it over the top on our list.

Whether you’re a cannabis connoisseur or a weed newbie, Storz & Bickel makes it easy to enjoy the superiority of its products.

No-fuss, no mess, no problem. Just pack it with your favorite ground or whole flower and get started on flying high as a kite.

The Rocket Bong

Some of us like simple bongs, but not all of us, and that’s why the Rocket Bong is the way to go for eccentric stoners that need a piece to stand out from the crowd.

The Rocket Bong is the way to go if this sounds like you, and we’re not just saying that because it literally looks like a rocket ship. 

You’ll be blasting off in no time with this baby, enjoying the trippy shark-themed and spacey aesthetics that give it its name.

A unique person needs a unique bong, so this with undoubtedly step up your smoking game and be a conversation starter whether you’re hanging out at home or out and about with friends.
