Silicone is the second most popular material for bongs and pipes. Some people even prefer silicone to glass in some instances. If you haven’t smoked out of silicone before, we’re going to go over a few reasons in this article as to why you should. Maybe your mind will change, and you’ll see silicone in a new light.
Silicone is a softer material than glass. This allows it to be manipulated in more ways. You can find various silicone pieces that would be much harder to make from glass. Not only is silicone more flexible, but silicone can also come in many different combinations of colours. Combining different colours of silicone will lead to one of a kind colour patterns that just isn’t achievable with glass.
Reliability, Easy to Clean, & Portability
Have you ever dropped and smashed your favourite glass bong? Well, that isn’t something you have to worry about with a silicone piece. Silicone is practically indestructible. This means that any silicone bong or pipe is perfect for travelling with. Take it camping, to a festival, your friend’s backyard, it doesn’t matter. A silicone piece will last numerous falls and keep on working like the first day you bought it. Did we mention that silicone is extremely light as well?
Not only is silicone indestructible but because of how smooth and nonporous it is, silicone is an absolute breeze to clean. Most gunk and resin can simply be wiped off. For the extra hard to reach dirt and grime, let the silicone piece soak in some cleaner for a while. You’re going to use a lot less effort to get your silicone bong looking brand new compared to a glass bong. If you’re super lazy, just throw it in the dishwasher!
A brand new beefy thick glass bong is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We know that, but finding a new bong that doesn’t break the bank and works just as well as those expensive pieces is just as good of a feeling. Silicone always comes at a great price-point. It is considerably more affordable than glass. Being affordable does not mean that it’s cheap junk. There are a lot of silicone bongs and pipes that smoke just as well as a triple perc’d glass setup.
