    probably a combination of the 2 Indica X Sativa.
    the ice does not have a measurable effect on how high bongers get you.

    the Ice may make the thc cool faster so more changes to a solid, but this is most likely a tiny fraction of the particulate that falls out of smoke passing through the bong.

    The colder the smoke, the longer you can hold it in, the more you can get out of your bud.

    No. If it did you would notice a solid at the bottom of the bong. Plus when you smoke your turning the THC into a gas, and not many chemicals sublime (go from a gas to solid) in general. Basic chemistry.

    Ftw. I always put Ice in my bong. It makes it smooth so you can take huge hits without coughing.

    I just recently acquired a bong with an ice catcher

    The ice in the bong doesn't reduce the high, as everyone said --- it feels a LOT better on your throat, and you aren't as likely to cough your brains out on a big ass hit.

    you may want to recheck your chemistry there, Sublimation being from solid to gas.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sublimation_(chemistry)

    basic chemistry- Lighting a bowl- You turned many solids to gasses, using an elevated temp, once they enter the bong they begin to cool and some of all of the components of the smoke are DEPOSITED on the wall of the smoking device, because the temperature is decreasing and the combustion reaction has ended.

    I am sure cooling smoke causes more particulate to precipitate out, thc being in there as a component of marijuana smoke, thats why your bong gets dirty and the resin can get you high.....not that it should......... ever......

    putting ice water in your bong makes your hits way smoother, why do you think bongs come with ice catchers?

    I honestly believe that a bong with ice will result in some loss. I mean, everything being equal, you'll get less high than with a regular pipe or a joint. You can take bigger hits with a bong because its smoother but for the same weight smoked, I think you get less

    Theory is simple, Cannabinoids are fat molecules, they stand a much better chance of staying airborn and making their way to your blood than if they cool down trough ice and stick everywhere. I mean, you know what happens when you put sauce in the fridge. The fat floats to the surface and sticks togheter

    Thats just a theory btw :P

    Smoking through cool water seems to do much less damage to my throat.
    I have read that the heat of the smoke (with pot or tobacco) is one major factor in the damage it causes.
    If this is true (and I have no reason to disbelieve it), then cooling the smoke makes for healthier smoke.

    Additionally, when you smoke the dried flower of a hemp plant, you are inhaling hundreds of chemicals. Most of them do nothing to get you high, and some hurt you.
    A portion of the unwanted chemicals are filtered out though water (and particularly cold water), so it seems healthier in this way, too.

    I used to keep my bong in the fridge, so that the water would always be cool.

    (I might be completely misunderstanding your theory, so just bear with me here.)

    You know there's no fat in water, right? That's why it just freezes instead of congealing first.

    Also, the colder a substance is the less absorbent it becomes and vice versa.


    So, according to basic chemistry, the colder your bong water the less filtering it actually does. Warm/hot water, on the other hand, would be by extremely effective at filtering your smoke and robbing you of a few extra THC and cannabinoid molecules by comparison. That's why some people with multi-chamber bongs fill the first chamber with near-boiling water and any subsequent chambers with progressively colder water/ice mixtures.
