2022 was the year of the bong in Australia. With medicinal cannabis on the rise (University Of Sydney, 2022) and personal approval of cannabis use by adults increasing significantly (Australian Institute Of Health & Welfare, 2022), the country is opening its eyes and minds to the benefits of legal marijuana and the devices used to facilitate this growing trend. After a whirlwind year filled with new releases and enhancements to familiar favourites, we dissect eight of the most popular bongs last year, provide insight into their benefits and why they might tickle your fancy if you're looking for a new rig in 2023.

1. Bud Beaker Bong - 25cm

Bud Beaker Bong 25cm

Simplicity reigned supreme last year with the Bud Beaker Bong taking the crown as the most popular glass bong at Glass Bongs Australia. The 25cm tall beaker bong flashed a cheap price tag all year long at $39.95 but never skimped on quality. Its simple no-frills features including the thick borosilicate glass, sturdy beaker base, ice notches and comfortable mouthpiece made it a winner for all bong enthusiasts from beginners to veterans. Plus, the classic clear glass gave you a chance to customise with coloured cone pieces, downstems and ash catchers. If you’re looking to add to your All-Rounder Beaker Bong collection in 2023, it’s time to think about adding a newly released pink or teal one to your repertoire today!
