Is a gravity bong the same as a hookah?

The quick answer to your question is no. Gravity bongs are not the same as hookahs. Although, they perform the same action pretty much. Both gravity bongs and hookahs are great ways to administer cannabis therapy.

What is a bong?

A gravity bong is a type of bong that uses a partial vacuum to draw smoke from a bowl of burning cannabis. The vacuum is created by filling a bucket with water and then inverting a bottle inside of it. The bottle is then placed bowl-side down over the water. The user then lights the cannabis and draws the bottle upwards, causing the water to be sucked up into the bottle. This creates a vacuum that pulls the smoke from the bowl and into the bottle. The user then removes the bowl and inhales the smoke from the bottle.

What is a hookah?

A hookah is a water pipe that is used to smoke different types of tobacco. Hookahs have a bowl of burning tobacco that is placed on top of a container of water. The user draws the smoke from the bowl through the water and into their mouth. Hookahs can have one or more hoses that allow multiple people to smoke at the same time.
