Gently push the bottle back into the water. As the water enters the bottle, the smoke will be pushed into your lungs.
Cut the bottom off your larger 2-liter bottle and fill it with water. If you’re using a bucket, fill your bucket with water.
Use your box cutter to cut the bottom off your smaller bottle. The more of the bottle that remains, the larger the hit you’ll receive, so be careful not to trim too much off the bottom of the bottle.
- Plastic bottle (any size, but 16-20 oz is ideal)
- Bucket or 2-liter plastic bottle
- Aluminum foil
- Box cutter or sharp knife
- Poking device
- Cannabis strains of your choice (at least one gram)
The cannabis smoke will be cooler, having been filtered through the water, but it will deliver a powerful hit of THC. For best effects, prepare yourself and don’t force yourself to inhale too much smoke. This has the potential to make even the most veteran of cannabis consumers cough, so proceed with caution!
Load cannabis strains of your choice into the foil-wrapped bottle cap, but don’t screw the cap on yet.
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.
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.
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.
