The anatomy of a standard bong can be broken down into five basic parts:
The bowl is the bulbous attachment where dried cannabis flower is loaded and combusted. It's often removable, allowing it to function as pull- or slide-carburetor.
The carb, short for carburetor, is a small hole that allows the user to clear smoke from the entire chamber of the bong, completing the bong toke. The most common type of carb found on glass bongs is a pull- or slide-carb, which is exposed when the bowl is removed.
The downstem is the small tube that allows the smoke to travel from the bowl down to the base, where it then percolates through water.
The base is the bottom of a bong and can take many shapes, depending on style. A bubble- or beaker-shaped base is often used to create the water chamber in which the smoke cools as it passes through the water.
The tube, which ends in the mouthpiece, is the chamber that fills with smoke after it has filtered through the water. Other features, such as an ice pinch, are often included in the tube design.
All these parts can take various shapes, colors, and designs depending on the bong's intended function. The downstem is often replaced with or attached to a variety of percolator designsthat offer more diffusion or separation of the smoke as it passes through the water chamber.
