Not sure if a dry flower bong bowl is right for you? Here's a little bit more information about smoking dry herb with one of our mini water pipes or rigs.
What is a Dry Flower Bowl?
A dry flower bowl is a type of bong bowl designed for use with dry herb. They come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they make it easy to load, light, and smoke your dry herb.
Technically speaking, almost any hand pipe counts as a dry flower bowl. However, we're talking about bowl pieces that load into a water pipe in this case.
These bowls typically have a wider opening than traditional hand pipes, which makes them easy to fill with material. The dish is usually a round or conical shape, facilitating an even burn.
What Is the Bowl Called on a Bong?
To specify bowls for water pipes, the bowl on a bong is called a slide because it slides into the joint of the water pipe. Once it's in place, the user can pack the bowl with their desired amount of dry herb and light it.
The smoke will then filter through the water and up into the user's mouth for inhalation. Removing the slide from the water pipe during inhalation allows the user to clear the remaining smoke inside the device.
Because of the sliding action, the best bong slides typically come with a glass handle for you to grip. This feature prevents you from burning yourself and makes it easy to remove the bowl piece during your hit.
Can You Buy Just the Bowl of a Bong?
If you're looking for a new bong bowl or just want to replace the one that came with your water pipe, you're in luck.
Bong bowls are sold separately from water pipes, so you can pick and choose the perfect one for your smoking needs. Make sure that you get the right bowl size for your pipe—10mm, 18mm, or anything in between—and you'll be all set.
At MJ Arsenal, we use the same 10mm size for all of our mini rigs and water pipes, allowing you to easily switch out the bowl piece without buying a new bong. We also offer a variety of different designs, so you can pick one that fits your personal style.
What Size Are Bong Bowls?
Bong bowls come in all sorts of different sizes, but the most common sizes are 10mm and 18mm. 10mm bong bowls are typically used with smaller water pipes, while 18mm bong bowls are meant for larger rigs.
If you're not sure what size bowl you need, just measure the joint on your bong. The joint is the part of the bong that the bowl piece slides into, and it will be either 10mm or 18mm in diameter at the tip.
For this reason, our ash catcher comes with a removable insert that allows you to use it with either diameter bong bowl. Just remove the insert when you're using it with an 18mm bowl and leave it in when you're using it with a 10mm bowl.
Smoking vs. Dabbing: Why Dry Flower?
The great thing about water pipes is that they work for smoking or dabbing. If you're not familiar with the term, "dabbing" refers to the act of vaporizing concentrates like wax. You can accomplish this with various devices, but dab rigs are one of the most popular options.
While dabbing has become increasingly popular in recent years, plenty of people still prefer to smoke their dry herb — simply because smoking provides a more traditional way to enjoy your material.
It's a lot easier to get started with than dabbing, and it also doesn't require as much prep. Plus, many people enjoy the taste of dry herbs more than concentrates. Dry flower is also less potent than concentrates, so it's a good option for taking it easy.

Picking the Right Glassware for Smoking Dry Flower
When it comes to smoking dry herb, there are all sorts of different options. The most popular choices are hand pipes, water pipes, and bubblers. All of these options work with dry herb, but they each have their own benefits. Hand pipes are the simplest option—they're easy to use and don't require any water.
Water pipes, on the other hand, use water to filter and cool the smoke. The water makes for a smoother hit, but it also means that you'll need to refill the water chamber from time to time.
Bubblers are similar to water pipes, but they're smaller and easier to carry around. Bubblers are also a single piece—there's no removable slide like a water pipe.
The Benefits of Smoking Dry Flower
There are plenty of benefits to smoking dry herb, but here are a few of the most popular ones:
Benefit #1. Affordable
Dry herb is one of the most affordable ways to enjoy smoking. A single ounce of dry herb can last you up to two months, making it a very cost-effective way to smoke.
Benefit #2. Natural
Dry herb is a completely natural product. It goes straight from the earth to your pipe with no processing or additives, making it a great choice for those who are looking for a more natural smoking experience.
Benefit #3. Flavorful
Dry herb has a very distinct and robust flavor because the plant material has not been processed or adulterated in any way. The flavor of legal dry herb can be very strong, so it is best to start with a small amount and work your way up.
Benefit #4. Complete Terpene Profiles
When you smoke dry herb, you can enjoy the plant's complete terpene profile. Terpenes are responsible for the flavor and smell of loose herb, and each strain has a unique terpene profile. These terpenes give each strain its own unique flavor and smell, which is lost when producing extracts.
Preparing Herbs for Your Bowl Piece
Once you've chosen the perfect device for smoking your dry herb, it's time to prep your material. The first step is to grind your herbs using a grinder to break up the buds and make them easier to smoke. You can also use your fingers to break up the buds, but a grinder breaks up the pieces more evenly, resulting in a better burn.
How to Pack a Dry Flower Bowl
Once you grind your herb, it's time to load it into the bowl piece. Be careful not to pack it too tightly — you want air to be able to flow easily through the bowl. If you're using a screen, make sure that it's in place before you start packing the bowl. Once the bowl is packed, it's time to put the slide back in place and get ready to smoke.
Dealing With Your Ashes
Once you're finished smoking, you'll have a bowl of ashes. You can either tap them out into an ashtray or dump them into the sink. Just be careful not to drop them on the floor—they can be difficult to clean up.
Some ashes will also inevitably fall into the downstem and wind up in the water chamber. Ash in the downstem is perfectly normal, but you'll want to replace the water regularly — ideally, every session — for the best experience.
You can also use a glass ash catcher to collect the ashes and keep them from getting into the water. A catcher is a good option if you're smoking with friends and consuming large amounts in a short session.
