How to Make a Gravity Bong in 10 Minutes

A gravity bong is a simple but effective smoking tool that allows you to deeply inhale the smoke from your favorite herb or tobacco. It uses leftover containers and household items, so it costs nothing to make and is easy to assemble. In this blog post, we will show you how to make a gravity bong in two different ways: using a bucket or making a waterfall gravity bong. Both methods are super easy and only take 10 minutes to set up. Let’s get started!

What You Will Need

To make a gravity bong, you will need the following items:

  • An empty plastic bottle (any size, but bigger bottles will produce bigger hits)
  • A larger plastic container or bucket that can fit the bottle
  • Water
  • A plastic bottle cap
  • Aluminum foil
  • A pin, toothpick, or needle
  • Your herb or tobacco of choice
  • A lighter or matches

How to Make a Gravity Bong Using a Bucket

This method involves submerging a small bottle with a bowl of herb or tobacco on top in a larger container of water. The water creates a vacuum that draws the smoke into the bottle as you lift it up. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Cut off the bottom of the plastic bottle using scissors or a knife. Be careful not to cut yourself and discard the bottom part.
  2. Make a hole in the center of the bottle cap using a pin, toothpick, or needle. Widen the hole until it is about the size of your pinky finger.
  3. Tear off a square of aluminum foil and mold it into a bowl shape using your finger. Place the foil bowl inside the bottle cap and press it down gently.
  4. Poke some holes in the foil bowl using the same pin, toothpick, or needle. Don’t make too many holes or too big, or your herb or tobacco will fall through.
  5. Fill the larger container or bucket with water almost to the top. Leave some space for the bottle to fit in.
  6. Place the bottle inside the container or bucket, with the open bottom facing down and the cap facing up. The mouthpiece of the bottle should be above the water level.
  7. Sprinkle some ground up herb or tobacco over the holes in the foil bowl. Don’t pack it too tightly or it will restrict airflow.
  8. Light up your herb or tobacco with a lighter or matches and slowly lift the bottle up out of the water. This will create a vacuum that will draw the smoke into the bottle. Don’t lift it too high or it will come out of the water and release the smoke.
  9. Once the bottle is filled with smoke, unscrew the cap and put your mouth over the mouthpiece. Push the bottle down into the water as you inhale the smoke. This will force the smoke into your lungs.
  10. Enjoy your gravity bong hit and repeat as desired.

How to Make a Waterfall Gravity Bong

This method involves making a hole at the bottom of a plastic bottle and letting the water drain out as you light up your herb or tobacco on top. The falling water creates a vacuum that pulls the smoke into the bottle as you hold it above a container or sink. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Cut off the bottom of the plastic bottle using scissors or a knife. Be careful not to cut yourself and discard the bottom part.
  2. Make a hole in the center of the bottle cap using a pin, toothpick, or needle. Widen the hole until it is about the size of your pinky finger.
  3. Tear off a square of aluminum foil and mold it into a bowl shape using your finger. Place the foil bowl inside the bottle cap and press it down gently.
  4. Poke some holes in the foil bowl using the same pin, toothpick, or needle. Don’t make too many holes or too big, or your herb or tobacco will fall through.
  5. Fill the bottle with water almost to the top. Leave some space for air at the top.
  6. Screw on the cap with the foil bowl and place your finger over the hole at the bottom of the bottle.
  7. Holding the bottle over a container or sink, remove your finger from the hole and let the water drain out slowly.
  8. As the water is draining, light up your herb or tobacco with a lighter or matches and watch the smoke fill the bottle.
  9. Once the bottle is empty of water and full of smoke, unscrew the cap and put your mouth over the mouthpiece. Inhale the smoke quickly before it escapes.
  10. Enjoy your waterfall gravity bong hit and repeat as desired.

Tips and Warnings

Here are some tips and warnings to keep in mind when making and using a gravity bong:

  • Be careful not to burn yourself or your surroundings when lighting up your herb or tobacco. Use a long lighter or matches to avoid getting too close to the flame.
  • Don’t inhale too hard or too fast, or you might choke on the smoke. Take small sips and exhale slowly.
  • Gravity bongs can produce very potent hits, so start with a small amount of herb or tobacco and see how you feel. Don’t overdo it or you might get too high or dizzy.
  • Don’t use plastic bottles that have been exposed to heat or sunlight, as they might release harmful chemicals into the smoke. Use clean and fresh bottles instead.
  • Don’t reuse the same foil bowl for too long, as it might get clogged or damaged. Replace it with a new one every few uses.
  • Clean your gravity bong after each use to prevent mold and bacteria from growing. Rinse the bottle and cap with hot water and soap, and let them dry completely.

Conclusion

A gravity bong is a fun and easy way to enjoy your herb or tobacco. It only takes 10 minutes to make one using household items, and it delivers powerful hits that will get you high in no time. You can make a gravity bong using a bucket or a waterfall method, depending on your preference. Just remember to be careful, responsible, and respectful when using a gravity bong, and have fun!
