Dirty Bong = Dirty Health?
Posted 20 January 2008 - 04:26 AM
Im new to the forum and it already seems like this is a very well-rounded forum
My first question is this, if you neglect to clean your bong, can it cause you to get sick?
I always flush the water out with fresh cold water but as far as going that extra step and cleaning and scrubbing the bong and bowl, will that gunk build up inside breed bacteria that can make you sick?

And ps... If you ever come in contact with someone who lets their bong get so bad smelling that you gag, Slap them for me. Peace.
But really dont slap him. slaping is mean. id rather be punched in the face then slapped.

But I'm one of those who neglects to clean their bong. It gets stinky and I hate it. I've had it exactly a week though so its not too bad.
Is there any way too clean a bong out to get the resin collected. Im not that fiendish but maybe if you ran water through it and let the water evaporate you could make a dank rez ball.

Salt and alcohol works much better. That product is essentially the same thing but since it's marketed as "bong cleaner" they actually sell it to some gullible folks.
So it doesn't work better, it is just cheaper. Right? You are correct in saying they are the same thing essentially.

Here's my thoughts on the subject: Of course no one likes a nasty, smelly bong. I try to change the water out for every smoking session, and clean my bong once you can't see the inside anymore. However, I think a little bit of resin buildup is actually a good thing. When you smoke out of a totally clean piece, the hit you take is going to have everything in it... the good stuff (THC, cannabinoids) along with the bad (carcinogens). Now, I've found from experience that hitting a bong with a little resin buildup is actually a lot smoother. I think the texture of the resin on the glass actually collects more bad stuff from the smoke as it goes up the tube, but that's just my theory.
Trust me when I say this probably isn't just a crazy stoned theory, because I just read it sober and it makes perfect sense (granted I DID smoke a few hours ago...). I hate having a lightbulb-type idea when I'm stoned and then end up questioning myself as to whether or not it actually has any merit.
