If you wondering how much water you should add then the level of water is about an inch above the “diffuser”. The diffuser is a piece of glass that goes into the bong, it resembles a test tube. Filling to about an inch above the diffuser will give you an optimal experience when you hit your bong.

The bowl is a small piece that fits into the diffuser. Before loading the bowl you need to be sure to pick out any seeds that may be in the cannabis.

If the hole is accidentally clogged then you can fix the problem by using a toothpick or paperclip to move the cannabis around.
5.) Light the Bowl and Breathe in Slowly
You should light the bowl and breathe slowly with hemp wick. You should try to light the corner of the marijuana so that it does not scorch it all on the first hit. After the bowl is hit you will want to put the top of the bong around then lips and then breathe in slowly.
6.) Lift the Bowl and Inhale the Hit
When you breathe slowly the bong will fill with the smoke. And, once it is noticeably full then you will want to pull the bowl out slowly and then inhale all the smoke.

You should let it fill with less smoke while focusing on fully inhaling the hit. No doubt, you will have a very enjoyable hit with minimum side effects like choking or heavy coughing.
