Nice, hawkeye! Mr. H. has a bong on the way too. He ordered it two or three weeks ago, and it isn't due to arrive for another month! (It's on a slow boat from China, literally, lol!)
Hey, since we are on the subject, (I can't find any information about this, I've looked) how many of you reclaim the resins from your bong? And how often do you clean it? And not just changing the water-- actually give it a thorough, return-to-factory-settings-brand-new-out-of-the-package-sparkling clean? Is there such a thing as "seasoning" your bong, like cast iron? I know someone who shall remain anonymous (okay, it was Mr. Herbalist) who was furious when I gave the bong we currently use a good, thorough scrubbing. It was spotless, lol. Then Mr. H. saw it, he was trying to explain to me about how I had just removed what he referred to as "the cure," the "flavors that had built up over time," the "cultures." Finally I figured out he was talking about "seasoning" as if we were talking about cast iron. (Which is funny, because I always wash our cast iron pans thoroughly, then re-apply fresh oil before putting away). He eventually settled down, and admitted it was kind of nice to smoke out of a clean bong, lol. But he insists I give him a chance to reclaim all the resins before I scrub it again. Can't waste a single psychoactive molecule... I get it... Hopefully, once we are constantly harvesting, I can get him into an "abundance mindset," and he won't feel the need to do that anymore.
Sorry to hijack your thread, @Hawkeye_diesel.
