A gravity bong is a simple but effective way to smoke your favorite herb or tobacco. It uses two empty plastic bottles and some water to create a vacuum that pulls the smoke into your lungs. It’s also very easy to make with some common household items. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make a gravity bong in two different ways: using a bucket or making a waterfall gravity bong. Both methods are equally simple and fun, so try them out and see which one you prefer!
What You’ll Need
To make a gravity bong, you’ll need the following items:
- Two plastic bottles of different sizes. You can use any size bottle, but keep in mind that the bigger the bottle, the bigger the hits will be. A 2-liter bottle and a 1-liter bottle are a good combination.
- A bucket or a large plastic container that can fit the smaller bottle.
- Some water.
- A metal or glass bowl piece, or some aluminum foil and a pin or toothpick.
- Some herb or tobacco to smoke.
- A lighter or matches.
How to Make a Gravity Bong Using a Bucket
This method involves submerging the smaller bottle in the larger container filled with water, and then lifting it up to fill it with smoke. Here are the steps to follow:
- Cut off the bottom of the smaller bottle. Use a knife or scissors to pierce the bottle about 1-2 inches from the bottom, and then cut around it in a straight line until the bottom comes off. Discard the bottom part and keep the top part with the cap.
- Make a bowl for the smaller bottle. If you have a metal or glass bowl piece, you can simply insert it into the hole of the bottle cap. If you don’t have one, you can make one using aluminum foil and a pin or toothpick. To do this, take a square of foil and wrap it around the cap, leaving some extra foil on top. Poke some holes in the foil over the cap hole, and then shape the foil into a bowl.
- Fill the larger container with water. You can use a bucket, a large plastic bottle, or any other container that can fit the smaller bottle. Fill it almost to the top with water, leaving some space for air.
- Put the smaller bottle in the water. Place the bottle with the cap and bowl on top of the water, making sure that the open end is submerged and the cap is above the water level. If water covers the cap, you’re pushing the bottle too far down.
- Sprinkle some herb or tobacco over the bowl. Break up your smoking material with your fingers or a grinder, and then fill the bowl with it. Don’t pack it too tightly or it will restrict airflow.
- Light up and lift up. Use a lighter or matches to ignite the herb or tobacco in the bowl, and then slowly lift up the bottle as it fills with smoke. Don’t lift it out of the water completely, or you’ll lose all the smoke.
- Inhale and enjoy. Remove the cap and bowl from the bottle, and then put your mouth over the opening. Push down on the bottle as you inhale to force all the smoke into your lungs. Be careful not to inhale too fast or too much, as gravity bongs can produce very potent hits.
How to Make a Waterfall Gravity Bong
This method involves making a hole at the bottom of the smaller bottle and letting water drain out as smoke fills it up. Here are the steps to follow:
- Make a hole at the bottom of the smaller bottle. Use a knife or scissors to pierce a small hole at the center of

- Light up and let go. Use a lighter or matches to ignite the herb or tobacco in the bowl, and then remove your finger from the hole at the bottom of the bottle. As the water drains out, smoke will fill up the bottle. Hold the bottle over a sink or a bucket to catch the water.
- Inhale and enjoy. Remove the cap and bowl from the bottle, and then put your mouth over the opening. Inhale the smoke as it comes out of the bottle. Be careful not to inhale too fast or too much, as waterfall gravity bongs can produce very potent hits.
A gravity bong is a great way to get high or buzzed with minimal effort and materials. You can make one in two different ways: using a bucket or making a waterfall gravity bong. Both methods are easy and fun, so try them out and see which one you like better
