If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to enjoy your favorite herb or tobacco, you might want to try making a water bottle bong. A water bottle bong is a simple homemade device that allows you to smoke through water filtration, which can enhance the flavor and smoothness of your smoke. All you need is a plastic water bottle, a metal or glass bowl, a pen or straw, and some tape or glue. Here’s how to make a water bottle bong in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Prepare the Bottle
The first thing you need to do is empty and rinse the water bottle. You can use any size of bottle, but a 16 oz or 20 oz bottle works best. Next, remove the label and the cap from the bottle. You won’t need the cap, but you can save it for later if you want to store your bong. Then, use a sharp knife or scissors to poke a hole in the side of the bottle, about halfway up. The hole should be big enough to fit the pen or straw that you’re using, but not too big that it will leak air. You can also use a lighter to melt the plastic around the hole and make it smoother.
Step 2: Make the Downstem and Bowl
The next thing you need to do is make the downstem and bowl for your bong. The downstem is the tube that connects the bowl to the water chamber, and the bowl is where you put your herb or tobacco. You can use a pen or a straw as the downstem, and a metal or glass bowl as the bowl. If you don’t have a metal or glass bowl, you can also use a socket wrench piece, an aluminum foil bowl, or even an apple.
To make the downstem, take the pen or straw and remove any ink or plastic parts from it. You should be left with an empty tube that can fit snugly into the hole in the bottle. Then, attach the bowl to one end of the tube. You can use tape or glue to secure it, or you can simply insert it into the tube if it fits tightly. Make sure that there are no gaps or holes between the bowl and the tube, as this will affect the airflow and performance of your bong.
Step 3: Fill the Bottle with Water
The next thing you need to do is fill the bottle with water. This will create the water chamber for your bong, which will filter and cool down your smoke. To fill the bottle with water, insert the downstem and bowl into the hole in the side of the bottle, and hold it in place with your finger. Then, fill the bottle with water through the mouthpiece until it covers about an inch of the downstem. You don’t want to fill it too much, as this will make it harder to draw smoke from your bong. You also don’t want to fill it too little, as this will reduce the filtration and cooling effect of your bong.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Water Bottle Bong
The final thing you need to do is enjoy your water bottle bong. To use your bong, pack some herb or tobacco into the bowl and light it with a lighter. Then, place your mouth over the mouthpiece of the bottle and inhale slowly. As you inhale, you will see bubbles forming in the water chamber as smoke travels through it. When you’re ready to take a hit, remove your finger from the hole in the side of the bottle and inhale sharply. This will clear all the smoke from your bong into your lungs. Repeat this process until you’re satisfied with your smoking session.
Tips and Tricks
Here are some tips and tricks to make your water bottle bong experience even better:
- You can add ice cubes, flavored water, or other liquids to your water chamber to make your smoke more refreshing and tasty.
- You can decorate your water bottle bong with stickers, paint, or markers to make it more personalized and fun.
- You can use different sizes and shapes of bottles to make different types of bongs, such as gravity bongs, waterfall bongs, or bubbler bongs.
- You can clean your water bottle bong by rinsing it with hot water and soap after each use.
- You can replace your water bottle bong with a new one when it gets dirty or damaged.
A water bottle bong is a simple and effective way to enjoy your herb or tobacco. It’s easy to make, cheap to use, and fun to smoke. All you need is a plastic water bottle, a metal or glass bowl, a pen or straw, and some tape or glue. Follow these steps to make your own water bottle bong in minutes, and enjoy the smooth and flavorful smoke that it produces.
