<br /> How to Make a Homemade Bong<br />

If you love smoking herbs or tobacco, but you don’t have a pipe or a bong handy, 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. Here are some simple steps to make a homemade bong.

What You’ll Need

To make a basic homemade bong, you’ll need the following items:

  • A plastic bottle. Any kind of plastic bottle will work, but keep in mind that the larger the bottle is, the bigger the bong hits will be. You can use a water bottle, a soda bottle, a juice bottle, or even a milk jug.
  • A pen. You’ll use this to make holes in the bottle and to serve as a downstem. Make sure the pen is hollow and has the ink removed.
  • A metal socket. This will be your bowl piece. You can find one in any hardware store or in your toolbox. The socket should fit snugly into the pen tube.
  • Aluminum foil. You’ll use this to wrap around the socket and make it more secure.
  • A basin or container filled with water. This will be your water chamber. You can use a bucket, a sink, a bathtub, or anything that can hold enough water to submerge your bottle.
  • Some herbs or tobacco. This is what you’ll smoke out of your homemade bong.
  • A lighter. This is what you’ll use to light up your herbs or tobacco.

Step 1: 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. To make the carb, poke a hole just below the neck of the water bottle with your pen. 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.

Step 2: Make the Downstem

The downstem is the tube that connects the bowl piece to the water chamber. To make the downstem, take your pen and remove any caps or tips from both ends. You should have a hollow plastic tube with no obstructions. Then, take your metal socket and wrap some aluminum foil around it. Press the foil into the socket to make it more secure and poke some tiny holes in it so the smoke can get through. This will be your bowl piece. Insert the socket into one end of the pen tube and push it until it fits snugly.

Step 3: Make the Water Chamber

The water chamber is where the smoke will filter through before reaching your mouth. To make the water chamber, fill up your basin or container with water until it’s about halfway full. Then, take your plastic bottle and cut off the bottom part with scissors or a knife. Be careful not to cut yourself or make the hole too big.

Step 4: Assemble Your Homemade Bong

To assemble your homemade bong, take your plastic bottle and push the open end of the downstem through the hole you made in step 1. Angle the downstem downward so that the bowl piece is outside of the bottle and pointing upward. Then, submerge the bottom part of the bottle into the water chamber until it’s about an inch below the surface. Make sure that there are no air leaks around the downstem or the carb.

Step 5: Pack Your Bowl and Enjoy Your Homemade Bong

To use your homemade bong, pack some herbs or tobacco into your bowl piece and light it up with your lighter. Cover the carb with your finger and inhale through the mouthpiece of the bottle. When you’re ready to take a hit, release your finger from the carb and inhale all the smoke in one go. Repeat as desired.

Congratulations! You’ve just made a homemade bong using some simple materials and steps. You can enjoy smoking out of your homemade bong anytime you want, or you can experiment with different materials and designs to make more creative homemade bongs.
