How to Make a Homemade Bong


If you love smoking herb 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. Homemade bongs are fun, creative, and can save you money. Plus, you can customize them to your liking and enjoy different flavors and experiences.

In this blog post, we will show you how to make a homemade bong using three different methods: a plastic bottle bong, a gravity bong, and a fruit bong. We will also give you some tips and tricks to make your homemade bong more effective and enjoyable. Let’s get started!

Method 1: Plastic Bottle Bong

A plastic bottle bong is one of the simplest and most popular homemade bongs. All you need is a plastic bottle, a pen, some aluminum foil, and some water. Here are the steps to make a plastic bottle bong:

  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 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, tear off a small piece of aluminum foil and wrap it around the wide end of the plastic tube. Press the center of the foil down into the tube to make the bowl and poke tiny holes in it so the smoke can get through. If you already have a downstem, you can use that with your plastic bottle bong instead.
  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.
    you’re having trouble fitting
    the downstem through
    the hole,
    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
    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.
    light up your herb or tobacco in
    the bowl and inhale from
    the mouthpiece—the opening where
    the cap used to be.
    you’re ready to take
    a hit,
    release your finger from
    the carb and inhale
    the smoke in
    the bottle.

Method 2: Gravity Bong

A gravity bong is another easy way to make a homemade bong using a plastic bottle and some water. However, unlike a regular plastic bottle bong, a gravity bong uses air pressure and water to push the smoke into your lungs. This makes the hits more intense and potent, so be careful if you’re a beginner. Here are the steps to make a gravity bong:

  1. Cut off the bottom of a large plastic bottle and remove the cap. You can use any size of bottle, but a 2-liter bottle works best. Make sure you cut off the bottom cleanly and evenly, so the bottle can stand upright in water.
  2. Make a bowl for the bottle cap using aluminum foil. Poke some holes in the foil so the smoke can get through. You can also use a pre-made bowl or a socket wrench piece instead of foil.
  3. Fill up a bucket or a large container with water. The container should be big enough to fit the bottle inside with some space left at the top.
  4. Submerge the bottle in the water with the cap off
