Good to see you here, and welcome to our Soft Glass Bong section! This is where you'll find some amazing and unique designs made locally by fantastic artists. Soft glass is different from the other glass we sell here. It's made using different materials and processes as well as a variety of colors! This type of glass has a lot to offer and it shines in the light of its differences from borosilicate. Come take a look around and all the options we have!
What makes the glass soft? This type of glass isn't necessarily soft in the traditional sense. It's referred to as that because of the difference between it and borosilicate glass. Which is what you'll find we mostly sell. The soft glass needs to be cared for just a little bit more gently in certain situations. It contains a much higher COE (Coefficient of Expansion). In layman's terms, this means it is less resistant to shock from temperature change. They are still very sturdy and amazing bongs to use on a regular basis! The main thing to keep an eye on is when you're cleaning it, be sure not to switch from steaming hot water to cold. It's best practice to use warm water while cleaning and smoking to avoid any accidents! This versatile style of glass isn't just used for bongs. Most commonly you'll see it used in glass-blown artwork! The higher COE makes manipulation and shaping much easier. Another great example is car windshields! I know right, not what you might expect. But, simply put, two layers of soft glass are used and a layer of ballistic polymer, a material capable of absorbing very high-impact energy. This is why windshields crack instead of shatter when inflicted with smaller forces. This is a very long-winded way of saying that soft glass is not to be underestimated and you should give it a chance!
Soft glass has a unique look and texture. You'll find that a lot of the bongs in this section are so full of color and life! Every one of these bongs is special and has its own personality. Some could stand on their own as art pieces! We offer some fantastic color and style options that you won't find anywhere else! There are some really interesting shapes that you might not think would work for a bong but they do not disappoint! If you've ever wanted to smoke out of a glass eggplant, or maybe an orange, perhaps a little mushroom-shaped piece, you've found the right spot! You'll find this glass is pleasant to hold and smoke out of because of its individualistic nature. There is something really cool about having a daily driver that you know is one of a kind!
Looking for a gift? These showstopping bongs will make a fantastic centerpiece to a stoner kit for the holidays! Who doesn't love receiving something new and bright to smoke out of? Along with some accessories perhaps! These pieces are great for people who are just dipping their toes into the weed world, and maybe want something very user-friendly while also being a unique piece of art! Gifts aside, you might just want to treat yourself to something with a lot of personality! Take a look through this section and you'll really start to see how every bong has its own qualities, and each one different in shape/color. We hope you can find one that matches your vibe!
