The gravity bong, also known as a waterfall bong, is not for the weak of the heart. Gravity bongs are a tried-and-true form of smoking used by veteran cannabis users. They can be quite potent, which may overwhelm novice smokers.
For these bongs to work, it is necessary to put a small container with a bowl of cannabis into a larger container or bucket of water.
As the bowl is lit and the chamber fills with smoke, you slowly take the bottle out. You then remove the cap, put your lips over the aperture of the bottle, and press the bottle downward. This allows the smoke to go directly into your lungs.
Do Gravity Bongs Make You Feel High?
One hit often produces a significant amount of smoke, since gravity bong chambers are typically bigger than standard waterfall bong chambers. The effects are amplified by the process of rapidly pumping highly concentrated smoke into your lungs.
Do Gravity Bongs Merit Production or Purchase?
If you’re new to cannabis or have a low tolerance, you shouldn’t start with a gravity bong. However, making a gravity bong is a simple and enjoyable DIY project. It guarantees quick delivery of your preferred herb for experienced smokers.
Not a crafty person? When you want a distinctive and strong smoking experience, pull out one of your gravity bongs from your collection and enjoy the sensation.
Making a gravity bong
If you don’t know where to begin, making your own gravity bongs can be overwhelming. But the process is simpler than you would think! With materials you probably already have at home, you can make your own gravity bong in about ten minutes.
You should gather the following ingredients first:
- 1 capped plastic bottle of any size – 16-20 ounce/500mL–600mL is ideal
- 1 two-litre plastic bottle or bucket
- Aluminium foil
- A sharp knife or box cutter
- Something to punch a hole, like a pair of scissors or drill
- Cannabis – at least one gram
Step 1: Cut the Bottles in Half
Cut the bottom of the bottle off with your knife or box cutter. The smoke chamber and the hit increase in size as more of the bottle are left.
After that, remove the cap from the 2-litre bottle. If you’re using a bucket, head to step two.
Step 2: Make the Bowl
Make a hole the size of your pinky finger in the little bottle’s cap with your hole-punching tool. The hole must have adequate room to pull air through it.
Aluminium foil should be wrapped around the top and shaped into a little bowl or divot for your cannabis. Make the depression in the top of the cap since it will need to be screwed back on. It will retain the cannabis better the deeper you make it.
Make three to five holes in the aluminium foil using your hole-punching tool. Avoiding ripping the foil.
Step 3: Get the Gravity Bong Ready
Fill up the large bottle or bucket with water until it is about two inches from the top.
Fill the homemade bowl (the foil-wrapped bottle cap) with marijuana, but don’t tighten it yet.
Step 4: Light Up and Enjoy!
Light your cannabis and pull the water bottle up slowly. When smoke fills the bottle, take the cap off and enjoy your smoke!
