Gravity bongs are a popular smoking method in the cannabis community. They are known for their strong and potent hits that can get you higher than a traditional bong or joint. If you’re looking to make a DIY gravity bong yourself, you’ve come to the right place. In this ultimate guide, we’ll walk you through step-by-step on how to make a gravity bong using household items.
Before you begin, it’s important to understand what a gravity bong is and why people use them. A gravity bong works by submerging the bottom of a bottle into water and then lighting your cannabis from the top. As you light up, the smoke will fill up in the empty bottle due to gravity. When the chamber is full of smoke, you can inhale it, resulting in an incredibly powerful hit.
Gravity bongs are great for when you want a strong high and don’t have much cannabis to spare. The concentrated hit makes them more efficient than a joint or a regular bong rip. Plus, they’re easy to make with items you probably already have lying around your house.
The two main types of DIY gravity bongs are bucket and waterfall. A bucket gravity bong utilizes a container filled with water, like a large bowl or a bucket, and a bottle with the bottom cut off. The top of the bottle is where the cannabis goes and will be lit from above the water. A waterfall gravity bong works similarly but instead of using a bottle, you use a plastic container and poke holes in the bottom for the water to run out of when you take your hit.
Before we start, gather these materials: a large plastic bottle, a smaller plastic bottle, scissors or a knife, aluminum foil, a lighter or matches, and a bowl or smoking device.
Cut the Bottom of the Large Bottle
First, take the large bottle and remove its cap. Using scissors or a knife, cut off the bottom of the bottle to create a better chamber for the gravity bong.
Cut the Bottom of the Small Bottle
Next, take the smaller bottle and remove its cap. Using scissors or a knife, cut off the bottom of this bottle as well. Then, cover the newly made hole with aluminum foil and poke a few tiny holes using a toothpick so that it can act as a bowl.
Fill the Larger Bottle with Water
Fill the larger bottle with water. You can use any temperature of water, but it’s typically better to use cold water because it will make for a cooler and smoother hit.
Place Small Bottle into Larger Bottle
Take the smaller bottle and push it down into the larger bottle that is filled with water, making sure that the hole in the aluminum foil is still exposed.
Light the Bowl and Pull Up the Bottle
Using a lighter or matches, light the bowl on the smaller bottle as someone pulls the smaller bottle up. This creates a vacuum seal and allows the bigger bottle to fill with smoke.
Take a Hit
Once the bottle is filled with smoke, have the person stop pulling the smaller bottle up and remove the foil-covered bowl. Put your mouth on the opening of the larger bottle and slowly push the smaller bottle back down. As the smaller bottle pushes down, the smoke will be pulled into your lungs. Take a hit, sit back, and enjoy the feeling.
Making a gravity bong isn’t as complicated as it may seem. Now that you know the steps on how to make a DIY gravity bong using household items, you can make it anytime you want. While the ultimate goal is to get high, be safe when smoking and ensure that you never hotbox alone or use materials that are harmful to inhale. With these safety precautions in mind, you can enjoy the potent and powerful effects that a gravity bong has to offer.
In addition to making a gravity bong, there are other ways to enjoy cannabis. If you’re looking for an alternative to smoking out of a DIY gravity bong or don’t have the materials on hand, edibles are always an option. Edible products can be purchased from dispensaries or made at home. Edibles provide a unique experience that can’t be found in other forms of consumption, and offer a longer lasting high due to the way they are metabolized. If smoking isn’t your thing, edibles are perfect for those looking to enjoy cannabis without having to light up.
No matter how you choose to enjoy cannabis, always remember to use it responsibly and never drive under the influence. Be sure to follow local laws and regulations regarding cannabis use – you don’t want to get in trouble! Lastly, make sure you always have a safe space where you can relax and consume cannabis without fear of judgement or reprimand. Happy smoking! There’s no better feeling than sharing a great time with friends, kicking back and enjoying cannabis in any form. Have fun, stay safe and enjoy your sesh!
To make a bucket gravity bong, start by finding a large bowl or bucket that’s big enough to submerge the bottle into. Fill the container with water and place the bottle in it. Then make sure the top of the bottle is above the surface of the water. Cut off the bottom of your plastic bottle, making sure to leave enough space at the top for your cannabis bowl. Attach a bowl piece on top of where you cut off and fill it with ground bud. Insert the bottle into the bowl and light up your cannabis. As you inhale, slowly pull the bottle out of the water. The increased air pressure will cause the smoke to fill up inside of it for an incredibly potent hit.
To make a waterfall gravity bong, start by finding a large container that is tall enough to submerge the bottle into. Fill it with water and place the bottle in it. Cut off the bottom of your plastic bottle, making sure to leave enough space at the top for your cannabis bowl. Attach a bowl piece on top of where you cut off and fill it with ground bud. Place your finger over the mouthpiece of the bong and lift the bottle out of the container. As you remove your finger, the water will rush down inside the bottle and pull smoke up with it. Inhale slowly to get a smooth, powerful hit.
