Unscrew the cap to your smaller bottle and use your box cutter or scissors to make a hole in the bottle cap. It should be big enough to draw air through, but not so big that the foil (and cannabis) will fall through into the water.
Load cannabis strains of your choice into the foil-wrapped bottle cap, but don’t screw the cap on yet.
You can reuse the foil in your gravity bong. Don’t worry about changing it unless you rip the foil or if the holes get clogged and prevent adequate ventilation, at which point you should swap it out with some new foil.
The short answer is yes. Gravity bongs force heavily concentrated smoke into your lungs, filling them to capacity beyond the average hit from a pipe or joint. When you inhale the contents of the smoky bottle into your lungs, you are essentially breathing in the smoke from an entire bowl of cannabis in one go. For this reason, gravity bongs are certainly not for the faint of heart. A tried-and-true method of old school cannabis consumers, it delivers a powerful hit of THC that may be too much for an inexperienced cannabis beginner.
Research is still being conducted on what sort of impact this type of exposure may have on your health. Many cannabis consumers prefer to use glass or silicone smoking devices and avoid plastic as a precaution. If you choose to make homemade gravity bongs and other smoking devices out of plastic materials, be aware of the risks and proceed with caution.
Gently push the bottle back into the water. As the water enters the bottle, the smoke will be pushed into your lungs.
Use your sharp poking tool to make holes in the aluminum foil. Be careful not to rip the foil! You’ll need about 3-5 holes for proper ventilation.
If you’re new to cannabis or have a low tolerance, you probably don’t want to start with a gravity bong. But for intermediate to advanced consumers, making a gravity bong is a fun, easy DIY project that ensures a fast delivery of your favorite strain. Not the crafty type? You can buy gravity bongs to add to your collection of hardware and bust one out whenever you want a unique and potent smoke session.
Gravity bongs can be a bit intimidating if you don’t know where to start, but the procedure is more straightforward than you might imagine. It just requires a little ingenuity, some creative efforts, and the determination to make it work, and in less than 10 minutes you can construct your very own gravity bong using materials you probably already have at home.
