A bong is a device that filters smoke through water, making it smoother and cooler to inhale. Bongs are popular among herb and tobacco enthusiasts, but they can be expensive and hard to find. Fortunately, you can make your own bong at home using some cheap, basic supplies. In this blog post, we will show you how to make a bong using a plastic bottle and some household items.
What You Need
To make a plastic bottle bong, you will need the following items:
- A plastic bottle of any size. You can use a water, soda, or juice bottle, but avoid reusable bottles that are too hard to cut.
- A pair of scissors or a sharp pen.
- A marker.
- Duct tape.
- A needle or a toothpick.
- Aluminum foil.
- Herb or tobacco of your choice.
Step 1: Cut the Bottle
The first step is to cut the bottle to make the base of your bong. You can use any size of bottle, but keep in mind that the larger the bottle, the bigger the bong hits will be. You don’t need to leave any water in the bottle, but you can if you want to weigh it down and make it stand upright.
To cut the bottle, use your scissors or pen to poke a hole near the bottom of the bottle. Then, use the marker to draw a line around the bottle about an inch above the hole. Cut along the line with your scissors or pen and discard the bottom part of the bottle. You should have a hollow cylinder with an open bottom and a closed top.
Step 2: Make the Carb
The carb is the hole that you will cover with your finger when you inhale and release when you want to clear the smoke from the bong. To make the carb, use your scissors or pen to poke another hole near the top of the bottle, just below the neck. Make sure the hole is large enough for air to flow through it, but not so large that you can’t cover it with your finger.
Step 3: Make the Downstem
The downstem is the tube that connects the bowl to the water chamber. To make the downstem, you will need an empty highlighter or pen. You can also use a metal straw or a glass tube if you have one.
To make the downstem, empty the contents of the highlighter or pen so you are left with just the hollow plastic tube. You may need to use scissors or pliers to pull it apart. Then, use duct tape to seal one end of the tube. This will prevent water from leaking into your mouth when you smoke.
Step 4: Make the Bowl
The bowl is where you will put your herb or tobacco. To make the bowl, you will need a small piece of aluminum foil. You can also use a metal socket or a metal bottle cap if you have one.
To make the bowl, tear off a piece of aluminum foil and wrap it around the open end of the downstem. Press it down to form a depression in the center of the foil. This will be your bowl. Then, use a needle or toothpick to poke some small holes in the foil. These holes will allow smoke to pass through into the downstem.
Step 5: Attach the Downstem and Bowl
The next step is to attach the downstem and bowl to the bottle. To do this, you will need to make another hole in the side of the bottle, slightly above the waterline. This hole should be about the same width as your downstem.
Use your scissors or pen to poke a hole in the side of the bottle at an angle. Then, push the sealed end of your downstem through this hole until it reaches inside the bottle. The bowl should be angled upward on
the outside of
