Q: Alright, I have been trying to find out for the longest time if there is a way you can get high off bong water. One time I was drunk and stoned as fuck and I kinda remember drinking it and about 15 minutes later I puked everywhere but I was higher than before. I have heard from many people that tried drinking it and they get high but barf every time. I want to know if there is any way to extract useful substances, or at least not barf. It would really helpful. Thanks.

A: You can not get high from drinking bong water. THC is very insoluble in water, so little ends up in the water. Most of the chemicals which get trapped in the water are water soluble byproducts of burning the marijuana. Many of these chemicals are highly carcinogenic and toxic. Drinking bong water is sort of similar to chewing on a cigarette filter in that you're giving yourself a concentrated dose of filtered out toxins, with little to no benefits.

While there likely is a small amount of THC dissolved in the filter water, just as there is a small amount of nicotine in a cigarette filter, drinking bongwater would most likely make very sick and have no real psychoactive effects. Bongwater also tastes extremely bad, which most users encounter as small droplets from bubbling if they pull too hard or have a short waterpipe.
