A gravity bong, also known as a bucket gravity bongs or a waterfall gravity bong, is one of the most creative, impressive and stealthy ways to get high. It’s basically a device that uses the force of falling water to filter smoke rather than air. It won’t just get you higher than any other bong; it will also amaze your friends with its ingenuity and cool design. If you love smoking weed, there’s no better way to do it than by using a gravity bong. This is not just another piece of equipment but something that will make you feel so much more connected to nature and even enhance your creative thinking abilities. Understanding how to make a gravity bong can be tricky at first, but once you know the tricks, it becomes easy.
What You’ll Need
– A Suitable Bottle: We’ll come back to this in a minute.
– Scissors or a Knife – You’ll need to cut the bottle.
– A Screen: You can buy these at any store that sells smoking paraphernalia. – A bowl – Again, these are widely available.
– Weed: You just can’t have a gravity bong without it!
– A Lighter: You can’t actually use a match to light your weed, because the bottle needs to be upright when you smoke.
– Something to cut the bottle: Again, a knife or scissors will do.
Step 1: Find the Right Container
The first step in making a gravity bong is to find the right container. Choose something that’s at least 12 inches tall, but preferably around two feet high. The bigger the container, the more smoke will get filtered. You can also get creative with the container’s shape or size. You may want to avoid using containers that were previously used for food or liquid. Do not risk getting any bacteria or germs in your bong. An empty plastic bottle of around 2L usually works best.
Step 2: Find a Suction Point
The next step in making a gravity bong is finding a suction point. You can use any part of the container for this. If you use the top of the container, make sure there are no holes in the surface that will let the smoke escape. You can also use a side of the container as a suction point. Next, you need to seal the area around the suction point with duct tape so the smoke doesn’t escape. If you’re using the top of the container, make sure there’s no gap between the top and the rest of the container. If you’re using the side, seal it completely with duct tape.
Step 3: Cut your Straw
Before you can actually start making a gravity bong, you need to cut your drinking straw. The best method is to cut a slit in the plastic, then break the plastic off the inside. If you use a sharp edge like scissors, it could potentially leave a hole in the side of the straw. This isn’t a problem when using a knife. Another option is to just remove the inner paper tube. The slit in the straw should be just wide enough to let smoke through but not so wide that it lets water in. Ideally, the slit should be about 0.5 inches wide. Make sure the slit isn’t too close to the end of the straw.
Step 4: Add the Screen and Holder
Next, you need to add the screen and holder. The best material for this is stainless steel mesh, but you can also use other materials. Alternatively wrap the plastic bottle cap in aluminum foil, shaping the foil to make a small “bowl” divot for your cannabis. The ideal size of the screen is 6×6 mm. You can cut the screen with scissors. You can add the screen to the top of the container or to the top of the suction point. Next, add the holder to the screen. Make sure the holder is pushed all the way down. Ideally, you want the holder to touch the bottom of the screen.
Step 5: Add the Bowl and Weed
Now that the container is ready and the smoking device has been added, you can start adding the bowl and weed. The best way to do this is with a funnel. You can buy a small plastic funnel or make one out of paper. If you decide to use paper, double it up so it’s thicker. Next, add the weed to the bowl and put the bowl on top of the funnel. The weed should be as close to the bottom of the container as possible. Now turn your container over, open the lid and let the water fall into the container. Make sure to use a big container. As you light, begin to slowly pull upwards on the small bottle.
The best way to make your very own gravity bong is to follow the steps above. Be careful when handling sharp objects and make sure your hands are clean. Ideally, you should make the bong with someone else and have someone else cut the straw. If you don’t have a friend available, you can make the bong in advance and just have to add the bowl and weed before use. Gravity bongs can be tricky to make, but once you have one, you’ll love getting high with it.
