Why choose a small bong?
Small bongs measuring eight inches and under are pint-sized, portable water pipes that deliver notoriously flavorful hits.
People gravitate to mini bongs for a few key reasons.
For some stoners, a mini bong is ideal for the flavor it delivers. Because there is less air and water within the chamber to dilute the smoke, hits tend to be stronger and more flavorful than standard sized bongs.
For others, it’s about portability and enjoying diffused hits whenever, wherever. Portable bongs are easy to transport, conceal and handle. With small water bongs you get smooth, filtered hits in a compact, lightweight package. Thus, these travel-friendly pieces are perfect for stoners on-the-go who don’t always smoke in the same place.
Many cannabis enthusiasts are drawn to small bongs from a purely aesthetic standpoint. That is to say, the pint-sized package has an allure all its own. In the age of bigger and better, mini and small is making a comeback like never before. And naturally there’s something to be said about the powerful hits mini bongs deliver too. In short, they are adorable yet pack a desirable punch. To illustrate, it’s comparable to how cute and small fluffy animals like koalas or red pandas can be way more powerful than you’d think.
The whole package
All the same, cannabis connoisseurs often say that it’s a combination of everything. Small bongs offer something that standard water pipes don’t. They offer the freedom to take bold yet clean hits from your rooftop, a lookout or beachside. And above all, in an extremely cute package.
Mini vs small bong?
At Stoners Rotation, we consider a small bong to measure 8 inches or under. Even smaller water pipes measuring 6 inches or less are called mini bongs. Even so, since the difference is rather small, we’ve coupled them together.
How much is a small bong?
Small water pipes tend to be significantly more affordable than larger pieces since they use less material and have fewer features. Cheap small bongs tend to cost roughly $20-50 while higher quality, more expensive pieces can run you roughly $50-100.
How to use a small bong?
Using a small bong is just like using a standard sized bong except it will be easier to take a hit since you don’t have to reach far to remove the bowl. Cannabis enthusiasts can follow our step-by-step instructions on how to use a bong which covers how to set up your piece, fill it with water and inhale.

How to clean a small bong
Choosing how you clean your water pipe depends much more on the material than it does on the size. The good thing is that small water pipes tend to be easier to clean since they do not have as many percolators or surface area for grime to build up.
You can follow our guide on how to clean a bong with and without alcohol. When cleaning a small glass bong, the most efficient method is to use a mix of alcohol and epsom salt. If you prefer something more natural to clean your glass, we highly recommend the second most common method of vinegar and baking soda.
If your bong is made of food-grade silicone, put it directly into the dishwasher for ultimate ease. But if you are concerned that the print may fade in the dishwasher, we suggest soaking it in soapy water in the sink before. Then follow with a rinse and let it dry.
Do small bongs get you higher?
This has been the subject of debate for a long time and while there isn’t much research into the phenomenon, many stoners attest that small bongs get you higher. Cannabis enthusiasts noticed that hitting from a mini bong tends to be more harsh. But it isn’t the harshness per se that’s getting you higher.
Since they have much smaller, more condensed chambers, the smoke is more dense. In other words, larger bongs dilute the smoke because it has the chance to mix with more air and water before it reaches your lips.
For this reason, small water bongs generally don’t offer as much filtration power as larger bongs either. It’s to say, they tend to have less room to accommodate percs which make for smoother but weaker hits.
