Feeling nostalgia? The 70s and 80s were great years where lava lamps dominated interior design and symbolized "fun experiences". Here are five great lava lamp bongs.

Finding lava lamp bongs that were in stock was a harder challenge than I had imagined. There are lots of alternatives out there that are discontinued or handmade by artists who want several thousand dollars for them. I guess they're intended for collection purposes, but who knows?

This list goes from $120 to $35. A cool rig shouldn't be out of reach.

That 70's XL Bong - Hemper.co

Hemper has once again proved that they got pretty much everything a smoker could want. This piece is smooth, groovy, and retro. It will definitely be the ship that takes you on your next journey. Hemper is definitely a numero uno site for me.

Again, I have to note that it is made for tobacco use only. So make sure to bring extra tobacco to your next sesh.

This lava lamp bong stands 10.5" tall with a diameter of 3.5". It has a double percolator system that first features an inline percolator that transfers to a lava dome percolator for an extra cool and smooth smoke.

Available in three different colors; blue, green, and teal.

Even though they don't specify it, this lava lamp bong is probably made with high-quality borosilicate glass. Hemper usually doesn't deal with low-quality bongs, at least not the mid to high-tier ones.

Items Included are The "That 70's Bong" and a "14mm Male Joint Flower Bowl."

Lava Lamp Heart Bong - InhalCo

Inhalco also does a great job at providing quality for their customers and a lot of different variations. I was lucky enough to find this awesome lava lamp bong featuring hearts on the inside. Your body will melt before you even get started using this.

I have to disclose that it is made for legal herbs only. So fill it up solely using legal herbs.

It comes in the shape of a lava lamp, duh. It is 9" tall and comes with a 14mm male quartz banger. Made, of course, using borosilicate glass.

It comes in two colors; green and orange.

Aside from its stunning looks, this device comes with a few features. It works both for dabs, concentrate, and buds and is equipped with an iconic showerhead percolator. Hits and puffs will be smooth.

Enter a world of performance today!

Iridescent Style Lava Lamp Bong - InhalCo

This might be one of the coolest and most retro rigs on this list. Made for peace of mind and is designed with durability in mind.

Reviews state that this bong, in fact, is made of thick borosilicate glass, is sturdy, and is not easy to knock over. It features a food-grade silicone casing to protect and please the eyes.

It is 8" in height which makes it portable and easy to transport.

The amazing showerhead percolator sits in the middle of the "lava lamp," sort of like an art exhibit. It cools and filters your smoke to perfection. This is an excellent water pipe.

They are handmade with high-quality glass. This way, colors may vary, but at least you have a cool design no one else has.

And, of course, it includes a 14mm dry herb bowl intended for legal herbs only.

The Nostalgia Lava Lamp Bong - SmokeDay

The reason I like this so much is due to its colored glass and trippy theme. It perfectly resembles a lava lamp, compact in body size.

Smooth hits come easily with this lava lamp bong. It has a showerhead percolator to evenly distribute the smoke, cooling it and filtering it efficiently.

Comes in two colors, amber (like the picture) and pink.

Brief History of Lava Lamps

Step into the groovy world of the lava lamp, a mesmerizing invention that combines science and psychedelic aesthetics. Prepare to embark on a journey through time as we delve into the history of these far-out lava lamps!

Picture yourself in the swinging sixties, a time when tie-dye ruled and flower power was in full bloom. It was amidst this colorful backdrop that the lava lamp made its debut. Created by the imaginative mind of Edward Craven Walker, a British inventor and self-proclaimed lover of all things trippy, the lava lamp burst onto the scene in 1963.

Inspired by a strange contraption he saw in a pub, Walker set out to develop a light fixture that would capture the essence of the era. He combined a glass vessel, filled it with a mysterious concoction of water, wax, and some top-secret ingredients, and added a heat source at the base. Voila! The lava lamp was born.

With its undulating blobs of molten wax floating gracefully in a sea of liquid, the lava lamp quickly became a cultural icon, embodying the spirit of the counterculture movement. It graced the coffee tables of hippies and trendsetters, casting a warm, groovy glow in living rooms across the globe.

As the years rolled on, the popularity of the lava lamp endured, evolving and adapting to the ever-changing tastes of each generation. From its humble beginnings in the 60s, it found a permanent place in pop culture, appearing in movies, music videos, and even adorning the sets of psychedelic rock concerts.

Today, the lava lamp stands as a nostalgic symbol of an era characterized by peace, love, and funky vibes. It continues to captivate the imagination of both young and old, serving as a colorful reminder of a time when the world dared to be different.

So, the next time you gaze upon the mesmerizing dance of wax and liquid inside a lava lamp, remember the visionary spirit of Edward Craven Walker and the far-out journey that led to this iconic invention. Let the lava lamp take you on a psychedelic trip back in time, where the only limits were those of your imagination. Keep on grooving, baby!

Good luck with your search to find the perfect performance groovy bong. I hope my list has helped!
