In the cannabis culture, gravity bong is a term that can refer to one of two devices usually used for smoking cannabis. Gravity bongs differ from regular water bongs or water pipes in the fact that they usually do not filter the smoke through water, they have a far larger chamber, and the smoke is much denser than possible in a standard bong. Additionally rather than the operator reducing the air pressure inside the device this is achieved with either falling water or by lifting the device while it is in a bath of water. These devices get their name because of the role that gravity plays in creating suction when trying to restore the pressure equilibrium of the inside of the bottle with the outside air.
