EHLE Bongs Bent Neck

The EHLE bong is a great product that features an adjustable bent neck.  It also has a unique shape and style, making it very appealing to many people who are looking for something different from the standard bowl or stem design.

This can be especially helpful when smoking cannabis as well as tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, etc. If you have trouble getting enough air in while using these types of devices then you need a bong like this one!

What Is An EHLE Bong?

An EHLE (EasyHandle Liquid Edition) water pipe was first introduced by Easy Handle Industries back in 2006. Since then they’ve been producing some really cool water pipes all designed around certain themes. One of those themes being “Curve” designs.

They offer three distinct styles of curves to choose from and each curve gives you a completely new look and experience. As mentioned earlier, there are 3 different shapes available including straight, S shaped & C shaped. Each one offers their own unique advantages over other shapes but ultimately what matters most is how much smoke you can get through per hit.

Bent Neck vs Straight Head

The majority of waterpipe heads feature either a straight hose or a slightly curved section at the end known as a “stem”. There are however two additional sections on both ends of the water pipe where bends occur, usually known as a bend or “neck”, and another bend directly after.

When you light up and take hits from a typical waterpipe, typically only about half of the THC gets absorbed into your bloodstream via inhalation due to the fact that the water acts as a filter between the smoke and your lungs.

Therefore if the smoke doesn’t come down right into your mouth, chances are high that you’re not going to enjoy yourself as much as possible. This problem becomes even worse when trying to use a regular cigarette since the smoke will just hang up in front of your face instead of traveling down the entire length of the tube and hitting your tongue along the way.

If you want to maximize your potential of absorbing the maximum amount of THC into your blood stream without having any problems, then you should consider using a waterpipe with a bent neck such as the EHLE series.

One thing worth mentioning here is that although the overall diameter may appear smaller when compared to a traditional waterpipe, the actual internal size isn’t actually reduced at all therefore the total volume of the water inside remains exactly equal.

The difference lies within the angled angle of the bend itself causing the smoke to travel further downward before exiting the device. In order to help illustrate this point let’s say we had 2 identical 4 inch long tubes made out of glass only 1 of them were bent so that the bottom portion would form a 90 degree angle whereas the second tube remained perfectly flat.

We could now compare the flow rate of the two tubes based off of their cross-sectional areas. Using basic formulas we can determine the velocity of a fluid flowing through a given space assuming friction losses are negligible. Let’s assume our flat tube measures 100 inches in height and width and the bent tube is 80 inches in width.

Our formula would tell us that the speed of the liquid would be approximately 0.6 feet/second in the case of the flat tube whereas the same value would be calculated to be 0.8 feet /second in regards to the bent tube. Now imagine placing a small ball bearing onto the top of the bent tube and rolling it across slowly until it reaches the end.

Upon reaching the end, the ball bearing will stop momentarily due to air resistance and eventually fall downwards again once no longer pushed forward. However, unlike the flat tube, the ball bearing is unable to bounce backwards against gravity due to the lack of a center column supporting the weight above.

Based upon this example alone, we can see clearly that the presence of a slight bend does indeed create significantly greater turbulence allowing the smoke to move faster down the pipe thus maximizing absorption capabilities.

Another advantage that comes with a bent neck is that the increased airflow helps to keep the temperature of the smoke cooler while helping prevent burning sensations caused by hot temperatures. Simply put, less heat = better results.

Another bonus is that the higher velocity of airflow allows for finer grained particles to pass through creating a smoother effect and feeling. Many users report that they find themselves taking several deep pulls rather quickly simply because of the improved quality offered by the slower moving smoke.

Furthermore, the bend at the end of the neck provides for easier cleaning as opposed to a straight piece. If you clean your waterpipes often, then you know that keeping things nice and hygienic is extremely important. By utilizing a bent neck, you’ll always maintain a cleaner environment while still enjoying optimal performance.

In conclusion, if you plan on purchasing a bong with a bent neck you must realize that you don’t necessarily get a free ride. Although bending the neck of the waterpipe increases the efficiency of the system, you do run the risk of experiencing negative side effects such as dizziness, nausea, dryness, coughing, shortness of breath, eye irritation, headaches, dehydration, fatigue, loss of appetite and memory impairment.

Users who prefer to avoid these symptoms should try and purchase a straight necked waterpipe to minimize these unwanted occurrences. Also make sure to stay away from anything that contains nicotine or alcohol prior to usage otherwise you might encounter unpleasant reactions from your partner as well as legal repercussions.

Lastly, remember that everyone reacts differently to various strains of marijuana – meaning that the best approach is to experiment with each type of weed strain individually. Try starting with low doses and work your way upwards gradually increasing consumption levels.
