If you are a bit experimental and are willing to try out a new smoking experience, try any of the following 7 alternatives:
1. Cranberry Juice
Cranberry juice is one of the most popular alternatives to water. It is guaranteed to influence the taste of your hit and is particularly effective when ice cold and fresh. It is also believed that the acidity of the cranberries help keep your bong cleaner for a longer time. In addition, cranberries are rich in Vitamin C and enjoying your smoking with cranberry juice will help you get some of the goodness into your body.
Using Gatorade in place of water won’t get you more hydrated with electrolytes but is a great option if you are after a flavor besides you bong in your mouth. Gatorade is available in a variety of different flavors and you can use your preferred one.
Kool-Aid is featured on this list specifically due to the flavors available. Grape Kool-Aid is probably one of the most amazing hits that you will ever experience. Kool-Aid also makes for a smoother hit as well as the delightful after taste. However, be careful not to leave it in for too long since it is likely to ruin your bong so ensure that you clean it thoroughly after use.
4. Hot Tea
Hot tea is a creative alternative to water. Prepare some hot tea, preferably using something with flavor such as lemon, orange, or peach as opposed to water. Most people are used to smoking bongs with either cold water or ice cubes. The inclusion of hot water offers an entirely new experience and smoother hits. Ensure that the water is hot when putting it there for an amazing new smoking experience. However, don’t add sugar to the tea since it causes problems for the bong.
5. Iced Tea
Iced tea is particularly preferable for the people that love filling their bongs with ice cold water. Pick your favorite iced tea flavor and throw in some ice cubes. Ensure that you don’t choose something too sugary since it can make it hard to clean your bong particularly if you love postponing your cleaning duties.
Wine can be used as an alternative to bong water. However, you should use wine with a lower content of alcohol since THC is alcohol soluble and you risk losing part of the content to the wine. Still, wine makes for an interesting flavor combination.
7. Lemon or Orange Peels
Once you have finished eating a lemon or orange, scrape the peels into your bong water. It will add an amazing citrus taste and is quite good for keeping your bong clean.
Final Words & Disclaimers about These Alternatives
The 7 bong water alternatives are equally good and you can try either one, several or all of them. However, you must never use anything containing fat as a replacement for your bong water such as milk. THC is fat soluble and you risk losing some THC content to the fatty liquid in the bong.
You should also avoid using alcohol except for low alcohol wine in the bong since it is never a good idea to mix fire and alcohol. Finally, if you plan to use sugary drinks as a bong water alternative, ensure that you clean it thoroughly and regularly.
