Got weed but no smoking device? This is a problem every cannabis consumer come across eventually. Not to worry, there are plenty of ways to make your own bong in a pinch. Ditch the apple pipe for something with water that can really stack hits for a better high. Here are some tips on how to make your own bong at home.
What Does A Bong Consist Of?
A bong consists of 3 main things: the pipe that holds the water, a downstem, and a bowl piece. The bowl piece is where you put the herb and ignite. It needs to be connected to the downstem.
The downstem holds the bowl. It also reaches into the water at the base of a bong. Smoke travels from the bowl, down the stem and water bubbles as smoke fills the chamber.
Make Your Own Bong With A Gatorade
When you’ve got no other option get creative. A Gatorade bottle is perfect for someone with no smoking device. You can use the bottle and a few other materials to make your own bong in no time. You’ll need an empty pen tube, water, some aluminum foil and obviously weed.
We wouldn’t recommend using this regularly because of the plastic and metals being heated. Best to use this when seeing family for the holidays or on the go. Follow these steps to make your own Gatorade bong:
1. Poke a hole at an angle just below the middle of the bottle.
2. Place the empty pen tube in the hole.
3. Fill bottle with water until pen tube is submerged.
4. Use tinfoil to build a bowl for the end of the pen cap.
5. Fill bowl with weed.
6. Remove cap from bottle and inhale from the mouthpiece while lighting the bowl.
Enjoy huge milky hits and make sure you dispose of it after a couple of uses.
A watermelon bong is great because you can use organic materials to smoke out of rather than plastic. In fact, you can even use a carrot as the bowl piece so that everything stays organic. Throw ice into the watermelon for a smooth, flavorful hit.
Here is how to make one:
1. Make a hole on the top and empty out most of the insides.
2. Poke a hole on the side of the watermelon for the slide. You can slide a carrot or downstem of your choice into the hole. If you’re using a carrot make sure you poke a hole through the center of it. An additional small hole on the side of the watermelon for a carb will make clearing the smoke easier.
3. Pour water into the top hole until you can pull from the mouthpiece and hear it bubble.
4. Pack your bowl with weed.
5. Put your mouth to the top before sparking it.
6. Light it, inhale, and enjoy.
A watermelon bong is a great way to get baked at a picnic. With summer only a month away there will be plenty of opportunities to put this to use outdoors. The best part is you can easily ditch this bong anywhere because it’s biodegradable. That or eat it!
