Stoners take a lot of pride in their glass collections, going to great lengths to keep their pieces shining, sparkling, and ready to hit. Not only is keeping them clean extremely important but some stoners believe that pieces should always have names. Sometimes, the names are funny and other times, they’re just a reflection of their owner’s interests. Why do some stoners believe that this process is vital to their smoking experience?
When a piece is named, there are some stoners that believe the chances of it breaking go down. This superstition must have something to do with the idea of humanizing the bong so that people take more care of it when handling it. If the bong has a name, someone is less likely to be careless with a piece of glass called George rather then “The Bong” (I hope that you’re not naming your glass George… Unless for some reason that’s a good fit for your piece!). Some smokers are so adamant about this that they name every single piece that they own, giving them one hell of a story to tell their stoner friends when they stop by for a sesh!
Other stoners don’t buy in to the naming fad, or at least not as entirely as others. Of course there are some glass pieces that get purchased that definitely deserve names. They’re so intricate and well thought out pieces that it’s impossible not to name them. While I myself don’t really believe that naming glass is extremely important or good luck, I have to admit that there are pieces of glass in my collection that got names just because of how awesome they look. The simpler looking pieces don’t get named and are called usually by the company that makes them.
Naming your glass is fun, whether you believe that it is good luck or not. Names can be funny, serious, or somewhere in between. Whatever you choose to do, everyone at THCFinder hopes that you’re simply enjoying your smoking time! Take good care of your glass, as someone worked hard to make it for you!
