Place your lips against the edges and slowly inhale


kick hole

Your new bong may have a kick hole on it otherwise known as a carb hole. Not all bongs will have these so don’t be surprised if you cant find it! You should cover this hole whilst you are sucking through the main pipe. When the pipe is full of smoke, release your finger off the hole. The effect of doing this is it helps to get all smoke out the pipe, you don’t want to leave any behind!



If you like you can pull the bowl out of the bong, as it allows more air to enter the pipe and you will be able to suck the smoke out easier.
