This article I want to dedicate to all bong smokers! Actually, I can understand when people say that vaping can’t replace smoking to them. Mainly for the two reasons that they don’t really feel their lungs filling while inhaling and while blowing it out they can’t see very much coming out unless they blow it in the light directly. My experience is, if you connect your vaporizer to a bong you can easily achieve full lungs and big fat white clouds. It feels actually pretty close to smoking a bong, much more than vaping and smoking is related, but it’s way more effectiv and healthy. Also vapor will not leave you with a bad smelling bong after using it and the taste will not turn bad, too. You can take at least four or five big draws from just 0,1g of herbs! So if you’re a regular bong smoker you should really give this a try! Beats smoking in every way imho and could help you to quit smoking very easy.
You can nearly connect any device with a water pipe or bubbler. You’ll just need some simple accessory, available in most vaporizer online-shops. Just a few companies offer an adapter for their products directly, though. However there are a few on the market you can easily adopt for your own device.
For example: all Vaporizers with a whip can be attached to an 18mm chillum adapter with the glass elbow adapter from the extreme q (that’s what I do), but there is also an adapter from the vaporbrothers and one from silver surfer vapes you can use for all of these! If you have a 14mm bong you can get the 14mm h2o adapter from the vaporbrothers vape or simply buy a regular 18mm to 14mm adapter from your prefered headshop, as well!
Btw. the Extreme Q includes two of these elbow pieces already, so you can already attach it right away. I write this, because i don’t think it seems obvious to everybody!
So this technique will let you connect more or less every device already, because you can attach a whip to nearly every vape on the market. Some sell special adapter for this purpose as well and on others you can simply put a silicone tube over the mouthpiece and you’ve made yourself a whip!
Another solution are so called GonG adapters, which will allow you to attach your device directly to your bong, without having a tube in between. There are just some for a few popular devices, but I will tell you more about these in my next post. Though, I use one of these to attach my Solo to my shiney new Weedstar Smellchecker, I’ve chosen maily because of the vertical chillum. I can recommend the Smellchecker a lot for this purpose! Most chillums will not stand the weight of the solo and the statics of the bong will be affected a lot. If you want to put down the bong you will not need to pull out the Solo before. That’s very appreciated, because you will need to let the device heat again for at least 30seconds after every draw and the vopor that will be produced in that time should stay in the glass best.
The Smellchecker is a 45cm big, very robust and heavy bong with a build in chillum and percolator of highest quality, by popular designer Ziggi Jackson. To cool down the vapor even more you can put some ice in it, too. This way, the vapor will stay smooth even if you turn the solo on one of the higher settings.
For the price of just 70€ it’s a bargain imo. In combination with the Solo this thing is my perfect mobile solution. You can put both of it in your bagpack without having to be afraid that anything could break. I like this combination a lot. With the GonG adapter the vapor stays even more pure and thick without getting too much mixed with fresh air. Draw slowly and very soft to achieve the biggest clouds and even whiten the whole large cylinder. Yes, that’s possible!
So, this is my current favorite setting, I’ve described just to give you an example how this could look. I hope I have inspired you to create your own or even rebuild mine! The combination of vaporizers and bongs is definitely awesome and it’s my favorite way to enjoy my vapes.
Every vaporizer user and water pipe smoker should give this a try, at least.
