Tastes great, less filling, you may remember the great debate over light beer versus regular beer. Today that debate has shifted towards weed. In particular, the discussion of cold water bong rips versus hot water bong rips. You have to be careful what water you use in a crowd apparently when you’re doing bong hits. The wrong water could land you in hot water having a weed debate on why one is better than the other. There is no evidence supporting hot water bong rips vs. cold water bong rips or why one may be better than the other and boils down to personal preference.
The Cold Rip Argument
Some people prefer an ice-cold bong rip. They even pack ice in their bong to make the hits extra smooth. The argument is that cold water cools the smoke before it enters the lungs creating a smoother hit. You’ll also notice when using cold water in your bong that more resin accumulates in your water. This is because it colliquates in the water instead of vaporizing into the smoke you’re inhaling which can also cause your rips to be a little harsher.
The Hot Rip Argument
Hot water bong hits in comparison are supposed to help soothe the throat thanks to the help of steam. Those who have tried hot water bong hits say they are much smoother than cold water or room temperature hits. Hot water also has the benefit of helping to melt resin allowing more of it to be vaporized and inhaled when smoking. Hot water inside of a hot water bong should not be boiling but about the same temperature as you drink a cup of hot coffee or tea.
