• Glass or quartz screens
Because steel screens are not as malleable as brass, fitting them into odd-shaped bowls can be a little more finicky.
• Brass screens
You can also make a screen from a paperclip or a similar piece of stiff wire. Bend the wire into a spiral and position it snugly in the bowl. This can work as a halfway-decent screen that keeps larger chunks of ash and weed in your pipe.
We had to start with a method that has been, and still is, super popular. Now making a comeback on social media is smoking out of foodstuffs – the same method your grandpa used during his stoner days.
• Stainless steel screens
Steel screens are often used in silicone bongs and acrylic bongs, although the latter can easily be scratched with these screens. They work just like brass screens, and there is no difference in taste. In fact, aside from their colour, the main difference between these two materials is that steel is more durable.
Brass screens are perhaps the most common, featuring in tobacco pipes and many glass and ceramic bongs. You can get them at just about any tobacco store or headshop for little money. These circle-shaped cut-outs are made from brass mesh, with each screen about the size of a small coin. Brass has the advantage that you can bend it easily; this way, you can fit these screens easily into various bowl sizes. If you happen to have brass screens that are a tiny bit too large for your bowl, you can easily cut them to size.
What is their disadvantage? Well, brass screens are not as sturdy as screens made from steel, for example. Although brass screens won’t melt, if you hit your pipe often, they will get weaker over time and break at some point.
It's 3am and you finally finished that paper. There's not a place open and you still want that smoke before bed. We have the solution for you!
Take a used toilet paper roll and make 2 or 3 holes on one end of it, and cover that end with a thick cloth and a rubber band over it. The holes you just made will be the place where you will insert your joints or blunts.
This guide will teach you how to make a pipe in 10 different methods and from various materials – such as plastic, wood, fruit, and more.
Soda cans are even easier to turn into a pipe than a plastic water bottle. Push the can on two sides near the bottom in so you make a little indentation, and then pierce the indented part with a needle or pen so you make a little grill. The grill will hold you weed in place and not let any ashe or weed fly into your mouth while hitting it. Make a hole above it for a little ventilation and easier hitting and you should be ready to light it up!
Apples have been most commonly turned into pipes. As you can see from the image below, you’ll need a pencil to push it through the apple through the middle (sideways) and make a tube, and make another hole where the stem is to connect it with the tube. The hole where the stem was will be your bowl area in which you should pack weed.
This will act as the main tube for the smoke to come in.
Alright so this basically boils down to the same thing with most of the smokable fruits and vegetables – take a pencil shove it all the way through the long part of the fruit.
Pipes have been a part of the cannabis culture for almost as long as there is one.
Make a little indent on the place where the bowl is and widen it a bit and start packing that sticky icky. Using a store-bought metal bowl can be a great way to enhance these pipes and make them easier to smoke from.
It’s important that you do this right and don’t be afraid to use a bit more foil. If you don’t do this part right the tape might melt and then your pipe might get ruined.
