If you love smoking herbs or tobacco, but you don’t have a bong at hand, don’t worry. You can make your own bong at home using some cheap and easy-to-find materials. A homemade bong is not only fun to make, but also fun to use. Plus, you can customize it to your liking and show off your creativity.
In this blog post, we will show you how to make a homemade bong using a plastic bottle, a highlighter, some foil, and a few other tools. This is one of the simplest and most popular methods of making a bong, but you can also experiment with other materials and designs. For example, you can use fruits, vegetables, glass jars, or metal cans as your bong base.
Before we start, make sure you have the following items ready:
- A plastic bottle of any size (the larger the bottle, the bigger the hits)
- A highlighter (or any hollow tube that can fit through the bottle)
- Some aluminum foil
- A sharp tool (such as a pen, a knife, or a paperclip)
- Some water
- Your favorite herb or tobacco
- A lighter
Now that you have everything you need, let’s get started!
Step 1: Fill up the bottle with water
The first step is to fill up the bottle with water about ¼ of the way. The water will act as a filter for the smoke and cool it down before you inhale it. You don’t need to fill up the bottle too much, as that will reduce the amount of smoke you can get. You also don’t need to worry about having the cap on the bottle, as you won’t use it.
Step 2: Make a hole for the carb
The next step is to make a hole for the carb near the neck of the bottle. The carb is the hole that you will cover with your finger when you smoke and release when you want to clear the bong. To make the hole, use your sharp tool and poke through the plastic carefully. Make sure the hole is big enough for air to flow through it easily, but not so big that you can’t cover it with your finger.
Step 3: Make another hole for the downstem
The third step is to make another hole slightly above the waterline for the downstem. The downstem is the tube that connects the bowl (where you put your herb or tobacco) to the water chamber. To make this hole, use your sharp tool again and poke through the plastic at an angle. Make sure the hole is about the same width as your highlighter or tube.
Step 4: Make a downstem and a bowl
The fourth step is to make a downstem and a bowl using your highlighter and some foil. To do this, empty the contents of your highlighter so you are left with just a hollow plastic tube. You may need to use scissors or pliers to pull apart the highlighter. Then, tear off a small piece of foil and wrap it around one end of the tube. Press down the center of the foil into the tube to form a bowl shape and poke some tiny holes in it so the smoke can get through.
Step 5: Insert the downstem into the bottle
The fifth step is to insert the open end of your downstem into the hole you made in step 3. Angle the downstem downward so that it is submerged in the water inside the bottle. The bowl should be facing upward on the outside of the bottle.
Step 6: Pack your bowl and enjoy your homemade bong
The final step is to pack your bowl with some herb or tobacco and light it up. To use your homemade bong, cover the carb with your finger and place your mouth over the mouthpiece of the bottle. Light up your bowl and inhale slowly until you see smoke filling up in
the bottle. When you are ready to take a hit, release your finger from
the carb and inhale sharply to clear
Congratulations! You have just made
a homemade bong using a plastic
bottle and some simple materials.
You can reuse this bong as many
times as you want, but make sure
to clean it regularly and change the
water and the foil. You can also try
making different types of bongs
using other materials and designs.
Have fun and enjoy your smoking
