i have a small cheap acrylic bong at home which i use to smoke. The only problem is that Ive had it for a while and the smoke tastes really harsh which makes me cough alot. I was wondering if you guys had any tips on making the smoke and smoother or nicer. Thanks alot for ur help guys :)

sounds like you need to give that bong a good cleaning. just some rubbing alcohol and sea salt and shake your bong real good. also try using cold water and change your water after a couple uses. If you have an ice catcher that'll help to. Anything that'll cool the smoke will be less harsh and always use a little less weed if its hits home hard. Just a couple quick snaps will do you just as good as smoking a full bowl.

It sounds like you really need to clean it. My mate has a bong like yours, its about 35cm's tall and acrylic. We were smoking it one night and it was really hot and harsh. We gave it a proper good cleaning.. changed the water, and we put about 3 ice-cubes down the tube. After, it was amazing!

cleaning fresh cold water and ice cubes will help :banana_rasta:

yeah, pretty much.


what's the best bong water substitute you've found?
like people use milk and shit, idk..i've never done it.
would it be worth it to change out my water for something else?

A friend of mine used Vitamin water, the XXX one. I'm not a big fan of doing that tho, I think water suites a bong perfectly. :bongtoke:

yeah, i experimented with vanilla extract and peppermint extract, which was a TERRIBLE idea.
the peppermint burned like a menthol motherfucker,
and the vanilla was barely distinguishable.


yeah, why fix what isn't broken.
h2o it is.

Water works but if you add a little milk to the water, it will make the smoke a little bit smoother and less irritating on your throat

i used to do it in my hookah pipe and it did indeed make a difference, never tried with a bong though

worth a shot

I used a non-alcoholic beer. Failed my friend puked when inhaling foam with his hit lmao.
Fruit juices work well, the ones from concentrate. I've tried apple, peach, fruit punch and maybe a couple others.
I'd avoid soda/pop, alcohol, and I don't know about coffee.. i don't drink it so i wouldn't bong it.

Be sure to rinse the bong out really well after too so it doesn't get sticky and funky from the sugars and shit.

oh and about the milk, make sure it has a low fat content cause it may absorb some thc.

put your bong in the fridge or freezer for a little bit...like 20 minutes, then smoke from it.
They sell this liquid which u put in your bong water and it makes it taste like the flavor you got. They sell them at headshops, might wanna go in and ask. I wanna try the blueberry one.

juice is a really good idea, i didn't even think about that.
why from concentrate though? just a higher sugar content for better bong flavor?

I'll throw my 2 cents in.

I like to be able to taste my weed. I don't want some additives to make it taste "better" There's so many different flavors in weed why try to cover them up with something else.

yah i rarely use any flavoring.

The concentrate is cheaper and you can fool around with your water to juice ratios to get a better tasting concoction. Its been like 4-5 years since I did this and the taste wasn't overwhelming or anything but it did have some flavor.
I tried to put pine apple slices in my bong and get some flavor that way (they stop @ the ice notches) it was a fail as well.

ok, well what about colored smoke?
could you use food coloring?

haha these are all off the top of my head,
i apologize for any assumed stupidity.

Nah the food coloring wouldn't work on the smoke. It'd just change your water color, which in a clear bong might look real cool.

+1 on cleaning, and you could always add an ash catcher for extra smoothness

I hate smoking with warm water, smoking with nice cool water is best IMO, smoother hits.

this would work for an acrylic like his, but if someone did this with a glass piece, im pretty sure it has a higher risk of cracking/breaking when you touch the lighter to the glass

Ice ice baby!

take a few matches and make a support at the base of the funnel (tube bit) then put ice chunks going up the funnel makes the smoke real cool! or just crumble bit into the water still works kinda

The fundamental problem here is probably the bong. Clean it regularly - especially the bowl and downstem and change the water after a bowl or two. That's probably all you can do. I don't think ice or water temperature make a huge difference as long as it's cooler than room temp, but you could try changing that up too.

warm water is smoother, i swear to it

i can take way bigger rips with warm-luke warm water.

cleaning and ice do help like everyone said but if you get something like glass pebbles and put them in you bong where the stem hits the water it will diffuse the smoke and make the smoke better. i have tired many substitutes for bong water and the only thing i enjoyed other than water was this mango juice. also don't try milk because it will just fill your bong with bubbles and make a huge mess lol.
