For some, the best way to cool off on a hot summer’s day is with a glass of fresh lemonade. But for the weed smoker, it’s an icy cold bong that does the trick. What’s not to love about an ice bong? You’re breathing in a breath of cold air each hit, which can be rather satisfying when it’s warm out. Not to mention, just holding it in your hands while you sit outside feels nice. If you’re looking to beat the heat the best way possible, then here are seven reasons why ice bongs will be the “hit” of your summer.
1. Ice bongs give you thicker clouds
If you’re tired of wimpy hits that produce little to no smoke, then just add some ice to your bong. When your piece is nice and cold, it creates thicker clouds. And you know what that means? You get a more powerful high, that’s what.
2. And smoother hits
Since the ice cools down the hot smoke, you’re able to take in smoother hits. That means you’ll cough much less as it won’t be as harsh on your throat. Nothing ruins a smoke sesh quite like a severe case of the coughs.
3. There’s more than one way to cool off
The beauty of the ice bong is that you don’t even have to take a hit to beat the heat. In fact, you can just hang on to it while you sit outside and enjoy the weather. It’s like an ice pack, except it gets you high.
4. Crushed or cubed?
Who doesn’t love variety? With the ice bong, you can choose from either cubed ice or crushed, depending on the size of your bong. With cubed, they don’t melt as quickly. But with crushed, you can fit more ice in at a time. It’s all about the little things in life.
5. Possibly more resin
When resin goes through an icy cold glass bong, it tends to build up within it. If you’re trying to keep the resin out of your lungs, then this can be a perk. Or, if you’re dankrupt and desperate, then you could always collect some and smoke it, although that is pretty gross.
6. Lots and lots of choices
In case you don’t have a piece already, you should know that most bongs come equipped with ice notches or ice twists. Just head over to your local headshop and check out a few. Or, you could always shop around online.
And if you’re feeling creative, you can even make a bong made entirely of ice right from home. Have a look at this video for assistance.
7. The taste is refreshing
Believe it or not, ice water can really bring out the crisp taste of your flower. Not to mention, it feels just like you’ve stepped outside on a cold winter’s day and took in a breath of fresh air. During the hot summer months, ice bongs will give you some much-needed chill.
