MONSTERS OF SMOKE Bongs How to Make a Bong Without Foil

How to Make a Bong Without Foil



`

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy your favorite herb or tobacco without spending money on a new bong, you might be interested in making your own bong at home using some cheap and easy materials. However, you might also be concerned about the health risks of using aluminum foil as a bowl or a downstem, as some studies have suggested that it can release harmful chemicals when heated.

Fortunately, there are many alternatives to foil that you can use to make a homemade bong that is safe and effective. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make two types of bongs without foil: a plastic bottle bong and a gravity bong. We’ll also give you some tips and tricks to make your DIY bong experience more enjoyable and satisfying.

How to Make a Plastic Bottle Bong Without Foil

A plastic bottle bong is one of the simplest and most common types of homemade bongs. All you need is a plastic bottle, some water, and something to use as a downstem and a bowl. Here are the steps to make a plastic bottle bong without foil:

  1. Fill up a plastic bottle ¼ of the way with water. Any kind of plastic bottle will work, but keep in mind that the larger the bottle is, the bigger the bong hits will be. Don’t worry if you don’t have the cap to the bottle—you won’t need it! The water you’re putting in the bottle is what the smoke will filter through when you’re smoking the bong.
  2. Poke a hole just below the neck of the water bottle to make the carb. The carb is the hole you’ll cover with your finger at first and then let go of so you can inhale the smoke in the bottle. Make the hole large enough for air to easily flow through it, but not so big that you won’t be able to cover it with your finger. You can use any sharp tool to make the hole, like a pen, a knife, or a straightened out paperclip. Be careful that you don’t cut yourself or make the hole too big.
  3. Make a second hole slightly above the waterline for the downstem. You’ll put the downstem—the tube with the bowl attached to it—through this hole at an angle so the end inside of the bottle is submerged in the water. Make this hole with the same tool you used to make the first one. Make the hole about the same width as a pen. If it’s any smaller, you may have a hard time pushing the downstem through, and if it’s any larger, the downstem may be too loose.
  4. Use a highlighter and foil alternative to fashion a downstem for the bong. To make the downstem, empty the contents of a highlighter so you’re left with just the hollow plastic tube. You may need to use scissors or pliers to pull the highlighter apart. Then, instead of using foil as a bowl, you can use one of these options:

    • A bowl cap made from glass or other food-safe materials (consider using the bowl from your existing bong)
    • A piece of chewing gum pressed into the shape of a cone piece
    • A piece of metal wire wrapped around your finger like a spiral
    • The silver piece on top of a pen (if you’re really desperate)

    Whatever you choose, make sure it fits snugly on the wide end of the plastic tube and poke tiny holes in it so the smoke can get through.

  5. Push the open end of the downstem through the bottom hole you made. Angle the downstem downward so the open end inside of the bottle is submerged in the water. When you’re finished inserting the downstem, the bowl should be angled upward on the outside of the bottle. If you’re having trouble fitting
    the downstem through the hole, make the hole a little bigger and try again. Be careful not to make
    the hole too big or the downstem will be too loose.
  6. Pack your herb or tobacco into
    the bowl and try out your new bong.
    To use your plastic bottle bong,
    start by covering
    the carb—the hole
    you made at
    the top
    of
    the
    bottle—with your finger.
    Then light up your herb or tobacco in
    the bowl and slowly inhale through
    the mouthpiece—the opening where
    the cap used to be. When
    the bottle is filled with smoke, uncover
    the carb and inhale the smoke in
    the bottle. Enjoy!

How to Make a Gravity Bong Without Foil

A gravity bong is another type of homemade bong that uses water and air pressure to create suction and fill a chamber with smoke. Unlike a plastic bottle bong, a gravity bong requires two bottles: a smaller one with a bowl on top and a larger one that holds the water. Here are the steps to make a gravity bong without foil:

  1. Cut off the bottom of the smaller bottle and the top of the larger bottle. You can use any kind of plastic bottles, but make sure the smaller one can fit inside the larger one. A good combination is a 2-liter bottle for the larger one and a 16-ounce bottle for the smaller one. Use scissors or a knife to cut off the bottom part of the smaller bottle and the top part of the larger bottle. Be careful not to cut yourself or leave any sharp edges.
  2. Make a bowl for the smaller bottle using a foil alternative. Just like with the plastic bottle bong, you can use one of these options instead of foil:

    • A socket for a socket wrench
    • A thimble
    • Another circular piece of metal that you can use to hold your herb or tobacco

    Whatever you choose, make sure it fits snugly on the mouthpiece of the smaller bottle and poke tiny holes in it so the smoke can get through.

  3. Fill the larger container halfway with water. Set the container down and fill it up with tap water. Limit the amount of water so that the container is only half-full. This amount will give you enough gravity to make the bong work without making a mess.
  4. Pack your herb or tobacco into
    the bowl and try out your new bong.
    To use your gravity bong,
    submerge
    the smaller bottle in
    the water-filled container with
    the bowl facing up.
    Then light up your herb or tobacco in
    the bowl and slowly lift
    the smaller bottle out
    of
    the water. As you do this,
    the bottle will fill up with smoke.
    When
    the bottle is almost out
    of
    the water, remove
    the bowl and inhale through
    the mouthpiece as you push
    the bottle back down into
    the water. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks for Making and Using a Homemade Bong Without Foil

Now that you know how to make a homemade bong without foil, here are some tips and tricks to make your DIY bong experience more enjoyable and satisfying:

  • Clean your bong regularly. After using your homemade bong, rinse it with hot water and soap to remove any residue or bacteria. This will prevent mold growth, bad smells, and harsh hits.
  • Replace your bong when it gets worn out. Homemade bongs are not meant to last forever, so don’t be afraid to toss them out when they get damaged or dirty. You can always make a new one with fresh materials.
  • Use a filter or a screen to prevent ash from getting into your mouth. You can use a piece of cotton, a coffee filter, or a metal screen to cover the holes in your bowl or downstem. This will also help conserve your herb or tobacco.
  • Use cold water or ice to cool down the smoke. If you find the smoke from your homemade bong too harsh or hot, you can add some ice cubes or cold water to the chamber or the container. This will make the smoke smoother and more refreshing.
  • Experiment with different materials and designs. You can use different kinds of bottles, containers, bowls, and downstems to make your homemade bong more unique and personalized. You can also decorate your bong with stickers, paint, or markers to make it more fun and colorful.

Conclusion

Making a homemade bong without foil is easy, cheap, and safe. You can use common household items like plastic bottles, water, and metal pieces to create a functional and effective bong that will let you enjoy your herb or tobacco without any hassle.
