Water pipe smoking remains quite popular. There are many reasons why it is preferred for smoking herbs. It feels more comfortable compared to traditional smoking pipes. It is easier on the lungs due to water filtration system which means the smoke is cooled before it reaches the lungs. The smoking experience is satisfactory and enjoyable because the water helps retain the flavor of the smoke. This system has been used for thousands of years so it is a reliable and tested smoking device.
The dry herb is placed in the bowl of the bong. Its pipe system allows the smoke to travel and come out of the mouthpiece. The smoke percolates through the water before coming out, providing a good filtration that cools the smoke and provides the perfect hit. The smoke is cooled down quickly when passing through the water in the form of little bubbles. The harshness of a hot smoke is eliminated so you will find the smoke cool and pleasant.
