We’re always looking for innovative and forward-thinking brands that challenge the status quo and find new ways to enjoy weed. This shoutout goes out to Stündenglass, which, fun fact: means hourglass in German. The reason will become apparent enough soon. This brand uses gravity and kinetic energy in innovative ways to take your gravity bong game to the next level.

We love a good story, and this brand has got a great one. It all started back in 2012 when Tracey Huston, who was an Apple employee at the time, got tired of his DIY gravity bongs and went on to design a prototype of his own to give stoners an alternative to traditional gravity bong designs.
As fate would have it, an innovative prototype made its way to one of history’s greatest stoners: Seth Rogen. All it took for the gravity bong to go viral was a video of Rogen using it on a social media, which quickly made its rounds through the universe of the internet.
What was an idea and a passion project quickly became a real-life business venture in 2020, when Grenco Sciences took a change in Stündenglass and hired Huston. Soon enough, the products became a hit and now every new invention by Stündenglass is quickly hyped up by regular users and critics alike.
We’re here to talk about a special Stündenberg product: the Kompact Gravity Infuser. The same patented 360° gravity system has made Stündenglass the go-to for gravity bong lovers, it’s part classic and part new and improved. The effective design and immersive experience are available in a more cultivated and portable size that makes carrying it around on any adventure just a purchase away.
To not get all scienc-ey on you, we’ll try to sum this up: the 360° gravity system is made to generate kinetic motion activation with a design that allows flowing water to move from one side to the other, opposing airflow and using the natural force of gravity to get you a gigantic hit by just sloshing water from one side to the other after rotation.
Basically: water go down, smoke come up. Water go up, smoke go out and inside lungs.
One of the Stündenglass Kompakt’s many qualities is its versatility. You can use it with flower, use it to vaporize hookah, or hook it up to a dab rig for a really mindblowing experience (we recommend leaving this for the hardcore smokers).
The interchangeable mouthpieces lets you customize your experience: go for the three-foot hose if you’re in a classy mood or go for the intuitive glass mouthpiece that you can inhale from without even touching your lips to the piece (making it great for sharing).
Another thing that makes the Stündenglass piece stand out is two-way water filtration. The double removable downstems provides hits a smooth as peanut butter, even for beginners.
The custom-fit travel case is another point towards this innovative gravity bong. It makes storing, carrying around, and making memories with your more portable-than-ever piece easier than ever. Carefully crafted from high-quality materials and form-fitted to perfectly fit the Kompact (accesories and all), is a gamechanger for lovers of gravity bongs.
Functional versatility: the Kompact comes with a complete set that includes an aluminum bowl kit and a glass liner, but can essentially connect to any smoking or vaporization device with a 14mm male joint.
Crafted using only the highest quality of materials to make it well worth the price tag, the Kompact is made out of borosilicate glass globes and air-craft grade anodized aluminum.
It’s not just made to last, but also to be aesthetically pleasing. If I saw it sitting on someone’s desk, I’d probably assume it was a fancy science thingamabob. Stündenglass knocks it out of the park where design is concerned, focusing also on the gravity and kinetic energy aspect that makes it a first-class bong.
The Stündenglass Kompact comes in at just under a foot tall, which allows for it to be so highly portable. The globes hold less smoke than the Kompact’s larger cousins, but the size also creates cooler and faster pulls.
Because it’s portable, the Kompact is great for traveling or having an adventure. You can bring it to your next beach outing, alow it to tag along on your next hike through the woods or bring it to that cool thing that’s going to be happening at who-knows-who’s apartment.
Because previous units tended to be on the bigger size, this is definitely the choice for the on-the-go smoker.

Let’s get to the gist of it: dropping a couple hundred dollars on a smoking device isn’t for everybody, but for those who are looking for that special something, this is where you take out the wallet.
On sale now for $499.95, the Stündenglass Kompact Gravity Infuser is not on the cheap side, but rest assured, every experience with it will make you feel like a million dollars. Plus, there’s a ten year warranty, so you can rest assured that it’s a sound investment.
We love this product because the brand is crazy cool and innovative, the kinetic energy and gravity thing makes us feel like (very high) scientists, and all in all, it’s just a great way to get your dose of the revered green goddess.
Intuitive enough for beginners and interesting enough for the tried-and-true, the Kompact is sure to please everyone. Once you go Stündenglass, you never go back.
