If you are smoking a bong for the very first time, then it can be a lot more confusing. But, it gets easier once you know how to use it. Before you smoke anything from the bongs, you have to fill it with water and put the things into the bowl. Then you have to light up the bowl, and the smoke chamber gets filled up with smoke. After that, you have to inhale. When you start it out, it begins slowly until you become comfortable with it.
Firstly, you have to prepare it by filling it with water directly through the mouthpiece according to the bong’s size. Grind the cannabis into small pieces and put them inside the bowl. Do not pack them very tightly because air shall not pass through it. Do not pack more than half of the bowl if you are smoking alone. When smoking along with friends, pack the bowl to the rim. After this, light up the pipe and inhale the smoke.
