It’s hot. It’s goddamn hot. It’s so hot that my fingers are sticking to the keys as I type this.
It’s so hot that I have every window in my flat thrown open and bees are getting in. It’s so warm that the idea of hot smoke is barely conceivable right now.
So what does that mean? When the sun’s out you can’t enjoy your herb for fear of tipping your internal thermostat over the edge and spontaneously combusting?
Where the water of your bong that should be cooling your smoke begins to boil in the heat, what do you do?
No there is a solution, a fantastic solution that will offer you cool easy to take smokes every time: Ice Bongs.
Ice Bongs are a specialised piece of glassware that goes one step further than your standard issue water bong. It has special notches in the neck that holds blocks of ice in the path of your smoke.
This leads to a cooler, smoother hit than you could find in any other method of smoking herb. Of course there’s other methods for cooling your hit, percolators break up your smoke which helps it cool, beaker bottom bongs have more water for your hit to filter through.
All of these combined though, will lead to a virtually arctic hit!
Here is a hand-picked selection of our finest and coolest ice bongs!
