Is there THC in bong water?

Have you heard that there is THC in bong water? Unfortunately, this is not the case, as THC belongs to cannabinoids that do not dissolve in water by themselves. Thus, THC does not remain in bong water in large quantity when you smoke cannabis. Only minute and negligible amounts of THC remain in bong water. Moreover, it is known that when bong water is exposed to light, it already affects the lowering of THC content. The fact that THC can be used with liquid differently is because of the combination with fats. For example, it is possible to make cannabis butter or oil and add it to a drink. That way, you do get high.

Does bong water get you high?

No, bong water does not get you high. That’s because THC doesn’t dissolve in water when the smoke you inhale passes through it.

The extremely minimal amount of THC left in the water is never enough to get you high.
