Why can high-end bongs be expensive?

The pricing of high-end bongs reflect the quality of glass, attention to detail, quality control, development and processes such as annealing that make borosilicate glass very strong and resistant to breakage from thermal stress.

Are our products genuine?

Yes! We do not sell fakes and are active in stopping the sale of counterfeit and fake products in Australia. Counterfeit products are common in Australian smoke shops but not at Glass Bongs Australia. Our glass bongs are genuine and made in the country we indicate.

What is the difference between a male and female joint piece?

Your bong, dab rig and accessories are classified with a gender. They’re either male or female. Male pieces go into female joints whereas female pieces sit on top of male joints. Think back to the awkward chat with your parents about the birds and the bees and you’ll never confuse the two again. For example, most bongs at Glass Bongs Australia come with a female joint meaning you will require a male joint accessory. If your bong or dab rig has a male joint, you will require a female joint accessory.

What are the sizes of glass joints?

Before you buy a new accessory for your bong or dab rig such as a cone piece, downstem, ash catcher, nail, banger, dome or percolator, you will need to know its joint size. Joints come in three different sizes: 10mm, 14mm and 18mm. The most common joint size is 14mm. You will rarely see 10mm joints and 18mm are often only found on larger bongs and dab rigs.

Read How To Measure Joint Sizes for more information.

How do I measure the size of a glass joint?

If you don’t know the size of your joint, it’s important you measure it before making an accessory purchase. Always measure the width of your joint at the widest point. There are two ways to measure the size of your joint depending on its gender.

How do I measure my bong for a new downstem?

Many shops measure their downstems differently and it's important to know how we measure our downstems before you purchase. We measure all of our downstems by measuring the length from the top of the ground joint (the top of the frosted glass that sits flush in your bong's joint) to the bottom of the stem (where it sits in your bong's chamber). This will ensure your downstem fits flush with your bong joint for the perfect rip.

What are bong percolators and their variations?

Percolator bongs make use of an extra filtration chamber that is usually located within the main chamber or inside the tube leading to the mouthpiece. The design forces the smoke through the percolator as you inhale. Some percolators are built into bongs or oil rigs, while others are used in add-ons like stems or tar catchers.

Read Your Guide To Bong Percolators for more information.

Are tar/ash catchers worth it?

An ash catcher is an attachment for your bong or oil rig that contains a water chamber and percolator. They are attached to your bong’s joint, and you place the bowl on the end of the ash catcher. They typically fit standard joint sizes. Their purpose is to catch the ash from your bowl before it reaches your bong. By catching the majority of the ash in the ash catcher’s water chamber, your bong stays cleaner for longer. Ash catchers create a smoother hit due to the percolator. They do however add a significant amount of drag to your hits because there is another water chamber and percolator to pull through. Another thing to consider is that it adds weight to one side of your bong making it easier to tip over if it doesn’t have a solid base. Contact us for more information about ash catchers and your smoking setup before purchasing.

How do I maintain and clean my glass?

A clean bong is one of life’s simple pleasures. Your rips are smoother, the taste is more satisfying, it’s less harsh on your lungs and your mates will be in awe of your ‘new’ rig every single time they snatch a toke. By keeping your bong clean, you’re going to add longevity to your favourite piece of glassware. It will stand the test of time and be by your side longer than you could ever possibly imagine. One liquid bong cleaning brand that will help you on your way to becoming a bong clean freak is Formula 420. Glass Bongs Australia and our customers have fallen in love with this brand over the past couple of years due the brand's simplicity, versatility and, most importantly, amazing results. Our wide variety of their products means you can find the right Formula 420 technology to suit your bong, dab rig and accessories.

What is the difference between a bong and an oil dab rig?

Consumption and Method

  • Bongs: Used for smoking dried flower, which is loaded into the bowl, lit with a lighter and inhaling the smoke through the mouthpiece.
  • Dab & Oil Rigs: Used as a way to consume vapor from using a THC concentrate that is usually referred to as “wax” “honey” or “oil” using a torch and a nail.

Accessories

  • Bongs: Ends on a female joint and is intended for use with a flower bowl which usually has a male connection.
  • Dab & Oil Rigs: Ends on a male joint for use with a nail that has a female connection that is used to vaporize the THC concentrate.

Size

  • Bongs: Typically larger than a dab & oil rig because the flower is being combusted rather than vaporized meaning the smoke will travel the length of the bong without dissipating.
  • Dab & Oil Rigs: Are smaller as the vapor needs to travel a shorter distance in order to stay potent and flavoursome.

Setup

  • Bongs: Particular bongs can still be used to dab, however dab rigs cannot smoke flower. All you need is the appropriate adapters to match your bong.
  • Dab & Oil Rigs: A dab & oil rig setup will typically be more expensive than a bong setup. In addition to purchasing a rig, you’ll also need a nail and other dabbing accessories, such as a torch, dabber, silicone container, etc.
How do I dab?

1. You’ll need a dab rig

You preferably need one made from high quality borosilicate glass. Dab rigs are different from a traditional bong because instead of a bowl where you would normally load your herbs, you have a nail which you’ll light with a butane torch, instead of a lighter.

2. You’ll need a nail

The main types of nails that can be found are made from glass, quartz, titanium, or ceramic. Nails are either domed or not. A domed nail is a nail that is surrounded by a glass bubble, which keeps the vapor from dissipating into the air. Domes also ensure that you don’t accidentally touch the heated nail. The dome can be removed when you are heating the nail.

3. Gather your materials

You’ll need to ensure that you have all the tools that you need to dab. You’ll need a butane torch, a dabber, a silicone container with your concentrate, a nail and your dab rig.

4. Heating the nail

Light your nail. When you’re lighting your nail you want to ensure that you light it to the right temperature. If you are using a domed nail, take the dome off the nail before lighting it. When you’ve reached the right temperature your nail will glow. Make sure you are paying attention to the temperature of your nail. If you get the nail too hot, you could break it. If the nail isn’t hot enough, then your concentrate will not vaporize properly, and you’ll waste your dab. Various nail types have different ideal dabbing temperatures, so research your nail and practice.

5. Dabbing

After heating your nail to the correct temperature, you’ll take your dabber with your concentrate on it and place it inside of your nail. If you are using a domed nail, place the dome on the nail before putting the dabber on it.

What is the best dabbing nail for my setup?

It can be confusing trying to find the necessary tools for dabbing because there are so many options. You can use our guide to help you narrow down which one is best for your use.

Domed

A dome is used by attaching it over the nail and downstem connection, creating a dome around the heated nail with an open ended top to allow you to reach your dab tools inside to reach the nail. This prevents you from touching the hot nail. The dome also helps to catch some of the escaping vapor to ensure you get the most out of your dab. Domes are usually made from glass and accompany glass nails.

Domeless

Domeless nails reduce some of the effort required from a domed nail. They are often made from aluminium and typically feature a single connection to the downstem which is connected to a larger heating plate that you would normally find on a domed nail. Here are different types of domeless nails:

  • Direct Inject: A direct inject nail offers exactly that, a direct path for the vapor to flow into the piece with a heating dish and a slightly raised bowl that flows directly into the downstem.
  • Daisy: A daisy nail involves a relatively flat or curved surface with slits along the outside of the plate.
  • Angled Cut: An angled cut design is more for aesthetic appeal than anything else, giving users a visual change from the standard flat nail.
  • Banger: Banger nails tend to feature a curved or joint-like design that distances the heating dish from your piece. They also tend to have bucket-like heating dishes for better containment of the vaporized concentrate.
  • Halo: Halo nails offers a very unique design with its arch above the heating plate. The vaporized concentrate rises from the heating dish and enters the slits on the ‘halo’ during the draw.

Nail Materials

  • Ceramic: Ceramic nails are pretty much all domeless. Ceramic is meant to provide the best tasting hit, despite being the nail that takes the longest on average to reach the desired temperature. They are the cheapest type of nail on average however with this low cost, they have a tendency to crack over time, and require more care than other nails to avoid overheating which could shatter it. If you end up heating your ceramic nails evenly and slowly, you should be able to get a long life out of them.
  • Quartz: Despite looking like glass, Quartz nails are much more durable than glass, and are meant to provide the purest taste for your dabs. They generally are modest in price, but will eventually show their wear after a few months. Quartz nails heat up the fastest out of any of the nails, taking around 20 seconds or less to reach the desired temperature, but they also don’t retain that heat for very long. This can make them quite desirable as the quick temperature change preserves some of your butane, and also reduces the risk of burning yourself on the nail after sooner. They can be used with domes or you can also buy domeless ones.
  • Titanium: Titanium, like ceramic, is mostly domeless, and is for sure the most durable of all the nail types. It is incredibly unlikely it would break due to dropping damage or heat over time. The downside to the value is that titanium nails are usually the most expensive of the three, and also take a bit longer to heat up when being torched; being approximately 30 seconds or so.
  • Universal (and Complete): These terms are used to describe nails that are meant to fit multiple joint sizes or both genders. Complete Universal nails are meant to fit all joint sizes (10mm, 14mm, 18mm) as well as both genders of connection.
Why use a carb cap when dabbing?

A carb cap will positively impact the way you dab after using it. A carb cap is used as a covering for your domeless nail that restricts airflow to one small opening on the cap. This greatly increases the pressure within your water pipe, and allows the concentrate to vaporize at a lower temperature. It also allows you to vaporize every last bit of your dab. You can cap your nail towards the end of the dab when the nail has started to cool down, and there is leftover concentrate still in the dish. The cap creates pressure, decreases the vaporizing point, and that leftover bubbling concentrate burns right up into sweet, sweet, vapor.

How do I find the right grinder for me?

Grinders are useful to grind your herbs to your desired consistency, and also allow you to save some for later, rather than wasting it. Grinding your herbs is better for rolling joints or blunts, and allows you to achieve a better hit. There are different types and styles of grinders which are outlined below for you to choose the right one for you.

Materials

  • Plastic: Plastic grinders are the cheapest option which is great if you’re on the go, or need a quick replacement. With grinders however, you typically get what you pay for. The quality of plastic grinders is not as good as others which means they generally won’t last as long, or grind as well or consistently as the teeth tend to wear.
  • Wooden: Wooden grinders last longer and work better than plastic grinders and do tend to be more durable. They’re great for grinding your herbs short term, however the teeth are not very sharp and the wood tends to crack after a lot of use. If you’re wanting to store herbs or have a grinder that lasts you a long time, you may want to invest in metal or electric.
  • Metal: Metal grinders are much higher quality than wood or plastic. They last longer, they won’t rot or crack, and the teeth remain sharp after time. Metal grinders are typically made from aluminium or titanium and serve the purpose of grinding your herbs. Some variations of metal grinders also come with herb catchers to store your herbs and pollen screens to filter them.
  • Electric: Electric grinders are easily the highest quality grinders on the market with the sharpest blades. They grind your herbs quickly and most efficiently with minimal effort, and can store much more herbs at once. Some are battery operated which makes them portable.

Styles

  • Two Piece: These are the most basic style of grinder with top and bottom pieces with diamond teeth on both sides to grind and separate herbs. There is generally no chamber for catching or storing herbs.
  • Three Piece: Three Piece grinders have a top, bottom and a middle piece. The top and middle pieces are the grinding pieces for the herb. The bottom chamber catches and stores a small amount of herbs. Those three piece grinders that are meant to help store herbs typically have a mesh screen for catching it that sits under the middle piece’s grinding teeth leading into the bottom chamber.
  • Four Piece: This grinder has four pieces: top, bottom and two middle pieces. The top piece is the lid which has the grinding teeth. The second piece is the bottom grinding piece that has holes for herbs to fall through in addition to the teeth. The third piece is the mesh screen that stores a stash of grinded flower and allows herbs to fall into the final chamber, being the herb collector/storage.
What’s the difference between heady and scientific glass?

Heady glass is always visually striking with amazingly bright colours and fascinating glass shapes and designs that are generally not seen in the scientific glass lines. Heady glass pieces are usually hand blown meaning that they are one of a kind, individually unique, and aren’t mass produced. Heady glass is very artistically focused with visually pleasing effects such as fumed glass, sandblasting, accents, sculpting and more.

Scientific glass tend to be more mass produced with consistent quality. Visually, they are more of a clean, technical style with clear glass. However many are coloured or have coloured accents. Scientific glass is capable of containing more delicate and complex perculators with advanced glass manipulating techniques.
