10 Best Homemade Pipes and DIY Bongs

Suppose you have just got some cannabis that you can’t wait to smoke. But you realize that you don’t have anything you can use to smoke your stuff with. Since it is late at night you can’t even go out and buy yourself a hit bong or rolling papers. 

Being a smoker, it seems like a huge problem if you can’t find something to smoke. What do you do now? Well in case you are worried, don’t be we have your back.

With these amazing and homemade pipes and DIY bongs, you will never have to worry again!

But before you explore some cool ideas to smoke your cannabis, let’s talk about the Safety measures you need to take before creating your own homemade pipes and DIY bongs:

1. Stay Away from Any Plastic Material

Especially when you are looking for a bowl. Plastic is a good insulator of heat and melts rather quickly which could burn you and spoil your mood at the same time.

2. Check the Kind of Food or Fruit You Will Be Using

These DIY ideas include a lot of eating products, while you pick them from your kitchen make sure they aren’t ripe yet. Using rotten products will turn into mush and ruin the whole DIY operation in no time.

3. Do Not Forget to Add Some Tobacco to Your Crushed Herbs

The things you are going to use as an alternative to your bong are simply household material. In this case, smoking your cannabis can leave you with less smoke or it may not burn completely. This is why you should add some tobacco for your cannabis to burn quickly and effectively.

To start with, let’s look at the basic ingredients you will require to create your homemade pipes and bongs:

  • Basic household items
  • Food products or fruits

If you have a little shortage of resources make sure you have either one of them at the very least.
