It chills the smoke! You can hardly even feel when you take a hit.

you guys don't know shit.


do you guys have anything to prove me wrong?


you can get pneumonia from using an icecatcher. it's because there is moisture entering your lungs. it might not affect you if you do it once in a while but if your hitting a icecatcher daily, you're going to get sick.

another thing you might not know - holding in the smoke doesn't get you any higher and is worse for you.

first point is true. repetitive use of an icecatcher will get you sick. dunno if it will be pneumonia tho.

second point i disagree. the longer you hold the smoke in your lungs, the longer the contents of that smoke have to absord through the pores in your lungs into your bloodstream. this includes both the carcinogenic compounds, which are harmful, as well as THC, which is what we're all going for smile here's the evidence: when someone shotguns a hit to someone else (inhales the smoke as its being exhaled from someone elses mouth), the hit decreases in potency the longer it has been held in the lungs of the original smoker.

thatdude, LET IT CURE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD that stuff looks great, even tho it's prema you can still get it some jars and let it sit for a good few months. dont do yourself a disservice of being impatient!

Using ICE also cools down the smoke making the contents more likely to stick to your alveoli and causing more lung tissue damage. I read this somewhere, I forgot where, but I'll try to find the source.

^^ at the same time a good deal of the damage done from smoking weed is due to the fact that super heated smoke particles are hitting your lungs so in that aspect an ice bong reduces one of the health risks from smoking. On the whole though, I don't know if ice bongs are better or worse for you. People breathe in water vapor all the time though (ever been in a shower? ) so I don't think that that'd matter. Hopefully someone has some sort of definitive source for this subject. Someone ask their doctor, they'll surely give you an answer as they'd like you to do the least amount of damage to your body as possible.

Also, if they stick to your alveoli more shouldn't that get you more high as that is how the THC is taken into your body?

Also, passing the smoke through water should filter out some water soluble chemicals that are unhealthy and carcinogenic I'd assume? Not sure bout that though, I'm not a chem major but that's what my elementary knowledge of chemistry would lead me to assume.


ps.
Ice bongs definitely do NOT cause pneumonia. And yes holding in the smoke matters.

^^ passing smoke through water does filter out the water soluble carcinogenic compounds. that's the idea behind multiple chambers and percolation is that the smoke is continuously re-filtered as it passes through the different stages of your piece.

also, thanks for confirming that ice doesn't give you pnuemonia. i didn't think it did either. the point you make about the water vapor is true, but i think the reason why ice gets you sick is because of the temperature of the air/vapor. i imagine that it would have to be long term, intensive inhalation to induce any sort of disorder/sickness - look at eskimoes and other people indigineous to cold climates. i don't know whether they all suffer some affliction, but their longevity would insinuate that there are no major negative consequences.

i don't think THC can physically stick to your alveoli, only the thicker carcinogenic coupounds. i don't know the physiology very well, but as i understand it the THC that isn't absorbed through them is regurgitated via exhalation. how else would one explain contact highs?

5. Don't hold your breath, just inhale deeply... - Holding your breath in attempt to take in more of the active ingredients in smoked cannabis doesn't work. At all. The most extreme version of breath-holding is called the Valsalva maneuver, where you forcibly hold your breath, as if you were trying to equalize the pressure on your eardrums while scuba diving. Studies were done where subjects were asked to perform this maneuver after inhaling cannabis smoke. Surprisingly, it didn't increase the amount of THC they received. This might be due to how quickly THC passes through the wall of the human lung. Cornerstone recommends just inhaling deeply, then immediately exhaling. Breath-holding while smoking cannabis is a hard habit to break, but you'll get less tar in your lungs and all of the effect.

i remember from wikipedia saying one should hold the smoke at least for about 5 sec and exhale... (could be urban legend)
