What is a Gravity Bong: Take Your Dispensary to New Heights with Popular Gravity Bongs

Gravity bongs have increased in popularity, in part because cannabis-consuming celebrities like Seth Rogen and Wiz Khalifa have endorsed them, and also because of their unique design which provides a genuinely unmatched smoking experience.

Whether you’re opening a new head shop, or you’re a longstanding vendor with a loyal customer base, stocking gravity water bongs is a great way to appeal to your clientele and gain a reputation as the “dopest” shop in town (pun intended).

And the best part? Since waterfall gravity bongs sell at a higher price point than most other cannabis products and accessories, they can be a profit booster for your business!

But before you start filling your shelves with these stylish, attention-grabbing smoking devices, it’s important to get familiar with them and the advantages they provide — because the more you know, the easier it becomes to sell them to curious customers when they visit your shop. 

Here’s everything you need to know about gravity water bongs:

What is a Gravity Bong?

This is, without a doubt, the first question you’ll receive from newbie smokers after recommending a gravity bong piece. The answer? A gravity bong is a device used to smoke cannabis (primarily). It uses kinetic energy, water displacement, and gravity to create a vacuum that forces smoke upwards — resulting in a high-powered hit that will leave you high for hours.

How Does a Gravity Bong Work?

After asking “What is a gravity bong?” intrigued customers will want to know more about how it functions. Being prepared with a brief overview of how to use one is essential if you want to close a sale. We advise memorizing the steps below.

Step 1 - Fill the Chamber with Water

Each gravity bong has two globes, one holding water and the other filling with smoke. The bottom globe must be filled to the brim with water to use the device. 

Step 2 - Attach Chambers to the Base

Once you’ve filled the water chamber, attach both globes to the device stand. Double-check that they’re both secure before preparing your herb, oil, wax, or shatter.

Step 3 - Pack the Bowl

Grind your flower of choice and lightly pack it into the bowl. Remember, you don’t want the marijuana to be so tightly packed that it restricts airflow — just enough so it stays in place.

Step 4 - Light Up

Apply heat to the ground weed until it begins to burn and cherry. Once it’s burning red, remove the flame and allow it to simmer on its own.

Step 5 - Flip the Device

Flip the device over in the same way you’d flip an hourglass — until the water in one globe begins to pour into the other. You’ll see the smoke begin to accumulate in the other globe (the one the water was in previously). Wait until the globe is completely full of smoke.

Once the globe is completely full of smoke, flip the device one full rotation for a final time to push the smoke out of the mouthpiece.

Step 6 - Inhale (and Exhale)

Inhale the smoke — but don’t overdo it! This method of smoking delivers a pretty intense and immediate high. When in doubt, take your time. You can always spark up another bowl if you want one.

Just remember these steps can vary depending on the type of device you buy. We encourage researching the specific products you purchase so you can better educate customers about that particular unit. 

Homemade VS Store-Bought Gravity Bongs

You’ll likely encounter customers who’ll want to know how to make a gravity bong of their own. Or you might receive a bit of pushback from experienced tokers on buying a gravity bong when they could make one at home with some basic supplies. But here’s the thing — homemade gravity bongs are less precise and can be unpredictable in terms of how well they work.

The last thing you want to do as a business owner is educate your customers on how to make a gravity bong with a socket and other household materials, when you’re trying to sell them one of the units you have in stock.

The solution? Emphasize the following benefits of store-bought gravity water bongs:

  1. They Deliver Highly Concentrated Smoke (Every Time)

  2. One of the problems with making a homemade gravity bong water bottle is a lack of consistency in terms of smoke quality. Over time, materials like plastic begin to deteriorate due to prolonged exposure to heat. This and other factors can contribute to inconsistent and even potentially harmful smoke quality. 

    Store-bought bongs are made from safer, more durable materials like borosilicate glass, which is capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 340° F. These high-grade materials not only last longer, but deliver a consistent and concentrated smoke with each use.

  3. They’re a Statement Piece in Any Collection

  4. If you’re a social smoker, having a gravity bong in your collection is a sure-fire way to start a conversation and entertain your guests. Soon, they’ll be asking you “What is a gravity bong?” and asking for a demonstration. There’s something incredibly satisfying about watching the device flip and seeing smoke accumulate inside the globe. Trust us, even your non-smoking friends will be fascinated!

  5. There’s One For Every Budget

  6. It’s a common misconception that gravity bongs are super expensive. Yes, you can spend a sizable chunk of change on one of these devices if you want to. But there are also plenty of cheap gravity bongs on the market that works just as well. We advise stocking a few models in each price bracket to give your customers a greater selection to choose from. In a lot of cases, a higher price tag reflects the brand name of the device and not necessarily the quality or usability. Let your customers know about each unit so they can make an informed decision that best suits their needs.

    As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to choose store-bought gravity bongs over making one yourself. By having conversations with your customers about the perks of these devices, you can sell more and ensure they’re receiving products that perform well while also protecting their health.
