What does putting ice in a bong do?

Putting ice in your bong makes each hit dramatically smoother since it helps to cool smoke down to arctic levels. You know. Like those silky smooth bong hits you had at your friend’s who prepared the ice tray the night before so you could take fat rips with no harshness.

Essentially because the smoke has to travel around the ice cubes you get a cool, refreshing hit instead of a harsh, hot one. Also, because the cool smoke is more soothing on your throat and lungs, it further draws your focus to the herb’s natural flavor over the heat.

How to put ice in a bong

While the size of your mouthpiece will vary slightly, most accommodate enough space for you to drop in roughly four standard size ice cubes. Learning how to use an ice bong is pretty straightforward. In most cases you wouldn’t want more than four bong ice cubes because you don’t want the smoke to get too cold and burn your throat just the same. 

Simply prepare your tray of ice cubes a few hours or the night before and stick each in, one by one through the mouthpiece. It is also worth remembering that as the ice melts, you’ll need to dump some of the water out to keep it level. 

Is ice in a bong good or bad?

Ice bongs are good in most situations but it depends. If you’re just going to have a chill smoke session and just take a couple of rips, then it’s probably not worth it, especially if you have to freeze them first. Who wants to wait? But if you plan to take fat rips over a longer session then it’s definitely worth it. Try freezing your ice cubes the night before so all you have to do is pop them in. It’s really not that much work and most of the time it’s probably worth the extra effort because it simply changes your high. 

Do ice bongs make you cough less?

There’s a misconception around ice bongs that the ice cools down the hit completely so you just don’t cough but that’s not exactly true. 

If you take a really fat bong rip you’ll normally have that harsh feeling in your throat, a slight heat that eventually sets into your entire body since smoking naturally increases your heart rate, making you feel hotter. 

The ice, on the other hand, cools the smoke down as it passes around the ice cubes so you are able to take fatter hits more easily. But of course that doesn’t mean you still won’t cough.

Instead, you might just cough and find yourself on another planet in another dimension in some far distant galaxy with the sound of cicadas ringing in your ears, whether you put ice in your bong or not. 

So if you hit an ice bong and cough, we know it’s about to get “down the rabbit hole” trippy. But at least your throat will still feel divine even if you sound a little husky in the morning.

Putting ice in your bong is just another way to enhance the experience of taking bong hits and getting high. If you’ve never had a bong with ice catcher before, you may wonder if it’s really even worth it. But once you take your first chilled hit from an ice bong it makes going back that much harder. And that’s partially why the bong ice pinch is becoming standard if not essential in most bongs today. Simply, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as hits from an ice bong on a hot summer’s day.
