Silicone bongs only became popular a few years ago. Most bongs were traditionally made out of materials like glass or ceramic, which easily shattered when falling on the floor and were difficult and time consuming to clean. That’s why silicone pipes have become so common over the past few years. But here are a few things you should know about silicone pipes before buying one:

1. Look out for products with BPA in them. Some types of silicone are actually dangerous to humans, so we suggest spending a little extra money and purchasing a silicone pipe made with BPA free silicone, as this is much safer to smoke from.
2. Avoid smoking at high temperatures. Avoid smoking at high temperatures, as this is extremely dangerous for any material. The heat will burn your mouth, tongue, nose, esophagus and cause lung damage. But heating silicone to very high temperatures can also be dangerous, so make sure to check out the temperature rating on your silicone bong before purchasing it.
3. Research products and read reviews. Obviously, reading reviews is important for any online purchase but especially if you have concerns about safety issues.
4. Pay a little more for quality. Never sacrifice quality for a lower price. When you spend a little more money on a high-quality silicone pipe, it will last you for years to come, which makes it worth it in the long run. If you are paying $25 more for a pipe that you know is high quality and safe to use, you could end up using it for 5 or even 10 years.
5. Look for antimicrobial silicone bongs. Most silicone-based products are antimicrobial, but you should take extra care to make sure that the silicone pipe you are purchasing is antimicrobial, which means it does not enable the growth of micro bacteria. It’s also important to ensure that the silicone pipe you buy is dish-washer safe, since this makes it extra easy to clean and keep bacteria away, making it safer for you to use.

The benefits of silicone pipes

Now that you know what to look for in an excellent silicone pipe, we want to highlight some of the benefits of silicone pipes:

● Easy to travel with. Since silicone pipes are much more durable and harder to break than glass pipes, they are much easier to travel with without breaking.
● Scent concealing. Silicone pipes are also scent concealing, meaning that it is easier to hide the scent of what you are smoking than with a traditional glass bong.
● Extremely durable. While traditional glass bongs are very easy to break or shatter when they fall and hit the floor, silicone pipes are much more durable.
● Very affordable. Silicone pipes are typically more affordable than traditional glass bongs. However, it is important to spend a little extra to make sure that your silicone pipe is of high quality and safe to use.
