Ever wondered how the oldest bong in the world looks like? We did the research for you and found some interesting stuff.
Let's dive right into it.
Archaeologists have uncovered 2,400-year-old golden bongs used by royalty to smoke cannabis and opium in Russia.
The bongs were uncovered in a secret chamber covered with clay by construction workers during excavations to install power lines.
The ancient paraphernalia was found alongside 7 lbs of other gold items—three gold cups, a heavy gold finger ring, two neck rings, and a gold bracelet.
Experts believe the bongs to be the oldest in existence—used by Scythians, an ancient Iranian nomadic people who dominated the Eurasian grasslands for almost 1,000 years, roughly 800 BC to 300 AD.
The bongs contained a thick black residue which on examination was found to be a mix of cannabis and opium.
Cannabis played an important part in the Scythian religion—smoked as a way to induce a state of trance and help with divination. It is believed this potent mix was smoked by Scythian kings before leading their armies into battle.
