What does "Downstem" mean?
Definition: The piece that connects the bowl to the water source. The smoke travels from the bowl containing cannabis through the downstem and into the water so that you can inhale from the bong or bubbler and take in cannabis smoke in a lighter and smoother form. Only devices that involve water filtration require downstems. Also, it can be fun to look at the amount of smoke going through the downstem to determine how high somebody is about to get.
Example usage for Downstem
“Wow! Look at all the smoke in that downstem! Huge hit!”
