Today we’ll be exploring this cannabis relic in depth and even will be giving you some simple instructions on how to make a Gravity Bong at home. So sit back, relax…it’s time we school you new stoners on the ways of the gravity. Now that you’ve been schooled on the bong, let’s walk you through the steps in making it.
The steps how to make a Gravity Bong
STEP 1: Find the Pieces
The first thing, before you even start fabricating is to find all the pieces. As listed above, you’ll want a 2 liter bottle, some aluminum (or whatever else you want to use for a bowl), scissors, a tooth pick and a bucket. Also you’ll want to fill the bucket with water roughly 8/10ths of the way up.
STEP 2: Cut the bottle
Now that you have everything, you’ll want to cut the bottle at the bottom. Make sure you make it straight as possible for an even pull. You’ll quickly notice that this is easier said than done, however to make it easier for you, heat up your scissors with a lighter to melt the plastic to make a hole. Some people simply place the lighter directly on the bottle while lit so that the plastic melts and makes a hole. Either way, the point is to cut the damn thing.
STEP 3: Make the Bowl
Next, you’ll want to make the bowl. You can do this by simply folding the aluminum into a square. Then once it’s thick enough, jam it into the mouth piece of the bottle with your thumb and make the bowl. Finally fold the remaining aluminum around the mouthpiece but not too tightly, since you’ll need to remove the bowl to take a hit. Once the bowl is in place, take your toothpick and punch a couple of holes in it.
Load and Toke
Final step is to load the bowl with weed. Then remove the bowl and submerge the bottle almost completely only leaving the mouthpiece above water. Now, insert the bowl and light it while you gently lift the bottle from the water. You’ll notice the chamber fill with smoke as the water pressure creates suction and takes the hit for you. DO NOT TAKE THE BONG OUT OF THE WATER!
You want to raise the bong and fill it with smoke but never will you completely remove the bottle from the water. Once the chamber is filled with smoke, remove the bowl, place your mouth on the mouthpiece and then press down, and take the hit.
Then, you’ll see why people love gravity bongs so much.
There you have it, a gravity bong with all the science you desire. Have you ever tried a gravity bong? Do you make yours differently? Let us know in the comment section.
