Smoking a bong for the first time can be confusing, but it gets easier once you know what you’re doing. Before you can smoke anything out of a bong, you need to fill it up with water and pack the bowl. From there you need to light the bowl and fill the smoke chamber with smoke. Then you can inhale. If you’re just starting out, take it slow until you get more comfortable smoking out of a bong.

About This Article

To smoke from a bong, first fill it with water no more than 1 inch above the tip of the long glass tube that sticks into the bong. After you’ve poured in the water, loosely pack the bong bowl with grinded cannabis. When you’re ready to smoke, put your mouth on the mouthpiece so that your lips are inside and there aren’t any gaps for smoke to escape. Using a lighter, burn the edge of the cannabis in the bowl and inhale slowly at the same time so you can draw the smoke up. When you’re good with the amount of smoke in the chamber, stop lighting, pull the bowl out of the stem, and deeply inhale the smoke in the chamber. After holding the smoke in your lungs for a few seconds, you can exhale. For more tips, including how to grind up your cannabis, read on!
