Most of the world was introduced to the Stündenglass Gravity Hookah when in 2018, comedian, actor, and international stoner Seth Rogen got his hands on one of its prototypes and posted a video about it on YouTube.
That video might have been the starting point that propelled the Stündenglass into the limelight, but even without that video, this Gravity Hookah's fame was guaranteed. That's because the Stündenglass Gravity Hookah is the world's first (and so far only) professionally designed and manufactured 3-in-1 gravity bong for dry herb, hookah for shisha tobacco and concentrate vaporizer.
So, what is it exactly? And how does it work? Read on and find out.
A unique design for a unique bong
Before the existence of the Stündenglass, a gravity bong was nothing more than a plastic bottle cut in half, a bucket of water and a hole in the cap to fit a joint (or a makeshift bowl). You'd first push the bottle down into the water, light the joint, pull the bottle back up to let water displacement create an airflow that would suck the smoke out of the joint and into the bottle. Once enough smoke was collected, you'd push the bottle back down into the water to push the smoke out, and try to inhale as much of it as you could.
With the Stündenglass Gravity Hookah, those types of DIY projects are a thing of the past. Now everyone can own a stylish and precision-made gravity bong that doesn't only look stunning, but due to the high-quality materials used to make it, will last you a lifetime.
The glass globes are made from durable borosilicate glass and the body of the hookah is made from aircraft-grade anodized aluminium.
And even if something were to happen to this super durable and futuristic gravity bong, the 10-year warranty will make sure you'll be taking gravity-assisted hits for the better part of your life.
How does the Stündenglass work?
The principle of the old-fashioned gravity bong still holds true with the Stündenglass but has been significantly improved.
The more sophisticated and elegantly-designed desktop vaporizer, bong and hookah that is the Stündenglass generates airflow by a 360 degree rotating kinetic motion instead. This motion activates the airflow via cascading water displacement, which in turn causes the globes to fill up with smoke or vapour.
To see this principle in action, watch the following video to get a better understanding of how it works in detail.
How to use your Stündenglass ?
Now that you have seen how easy it is to operate the Stündenglass, the most important fact to take away from this article is that the Stündenglass Gravity Hookah is more than just a water pipe or hookah. The idea that you can switch between enjoying a smooth bowl of shisha tobacco, smoking or vaping some flavourful dry herb, or taking a big dab of concentrates in a matter of minutes is an absolute game-changer.
Using a glass 14-mm male adapter, you can fit practically every portable vaporizer you can think of onto the Stündenglass. If you are a big fan of vaping concentrates, this fact becomes even more attractive when you realise that the GPen Connect by Grenco Science already comes with a 14-mm glass adapter attached, and almost seems to be purpose-built to work with the Stündenglass.
The contactless smoke delivery system lets you share the Stündenglass with friends again
Another unique feature the Stündenglass brings to the table is that you don't have to touch the device with your mouth to take a hit. Due to the force the vapour or smoke is propelled out of the attached "contactless mouthpiece", you only have to hover your mouth in the near vicinity of the mouthpiece and inhale at your leisure.
Not only is this a big boon in a post-Covid world, but it also prevents you from accidentally ingesting water from the pipe. Now you can bring back the communal aspect of dry herb consumption that makes it extra fun. Sharing a bowl with your friends at a party is back on the menu! Huzzah for the hookah!

The evolution of the old school gravity bong in its final form
It's safe to say the Stündenglass Gravity Hookah has evolved the concept of a gravity bong to its highest and final form.
