How to transport travel bongs?

There are a few ways to transport your travel bong. The most obvious way is to just put it in your suitcase or backpack and hope for the best. A huge factor depends on which travel bong you have. If you have a little bit more time, you can wrap it up in clothes to help keep it safe. Some people even opt to buy a special case or container specifically designed for bongs, although the travel bongs we picked don’t need this. No matter how you choose to transport your bong, just make sure it's well-protected so it doesn't break during your trip.

What are the benefits of using a travel bong?

The biggest benefit of using a travel bong is that you don't have to leave your beloved piece at home when you go on vacation. Travel bongs come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find one that perfectly suits your needs. They're also usually made out of durable materials like silicone or glass, so you don't have to worry about them breaking if they get jostled around in your suitcase. And if you do manage to break your travel bong, some even have replaceable parts.

Can travel bongs be carried on an airplane?

The TSA has a section on their website specifically devoted to traveling with cannabis, and they state that you are allowed to bring cannabis on a plane as long as it's in your checked baggage. However, they also recommend that you check with your airline before flying to make sure they allow cannabis on board. It seems like a gray area and the type of thing people would do at their own risk.

State by state laws can differ as well, many stated cannabis is still illegal. A bong, as long as it's clean, should be completely fine always. And of course, if you're traveling internationally, make sure to check the laws of the country you're visiting before bringing any cannabis with you.

Portable Bongs Conclusion

Traveling can be stressful, having the ability to bring your bong with you adds a lot of value to a bong. Some would say even over $100 in value. Since you're reading this, it likely means being able to travel with your bong is valuable to you too.
