A gravity bong is a smoking device that can help you consume your herbs in one, massive hit. It’s made up of two containers, with one large enough for water and a smaller bottle to fit in. The materials can be made of plastic, or glass if you want to make something cleaner.
However, making your glass gravity bong requires specialized equipment such as glass cutters, clamps, and lathes. It also takes time to prepare. We’ll teach you how to make a homemade gravity bong using simple tools and materials that you can easily find in your home.
Materials for making the gravity bong
Here’s what you need to make a simple yet powerful smoking tool.
The size of this gravity bong is for big, serious rips. If you want something smaller, you can change the water bottles to a 1-liter and 2-liter respectively. Now, let’s go make your DIY gravity bong!
Before you begin, make sure that you have a wide, stable surface for creating your bong. You’re going to need force to cut the bottles.
First things first, you should know how to use a gravity bong. Now that you’re done, let’s cover a few things that you have to know about homemade gravity bongs. They are inexpensive, and you can get the materials almost anywhere. However, make sure that you’re using clean, BPA free, food-grade materials. When you use non-food grade materials for your gravity bong, you expose yourself to harmful chemicals and toxins. Not only will that ruin the test of your expensive herbs. More importantly, this practice can land you to a hospital.
Don’t let all that massive amount of water fool you. A gravity bong gives seriously strong hits because of the lack of water filtration. Pulling from a bong is not the same as letting gravity drag the smoke down from the bowl. If you want to get some diffusion, you need to get a bubbler bowl, which is a 10-inch long pipe that reaches deep within the bong.
Use the gravity bong after you’ve experienced smoking a bong or a pipe. Beginners beware because the massive amount of smoke is too overwhelming for you to take in. Never take on the gravity bong unless you’re experienced smoking from other bulky smoking devices.
When you’re done smoking with your homemade gravity bong, throw all disposable pieces away. Do not reuse the bottles to prevent inhaling toxins, even if the material is BPA free.
One more important note is that a socket gravity bong takes a slightly different process.
Making a homemade gravity bong is easy, and it’s also fun to use. However, it has a limited lifespan because of the nature of the materials. If you want a long-lasting gravity bong, we highly recommend getting the Gravitron Glass Gravity Bong by GRAV. It’s made of an all-glass material for cleaner and safer smoking.
What’s more, you get to taste the real flavor of your herb because you don’t have aluminum or metal interfering with the taste. Click here now and get your very own Gravitron.
