One of the most common ways of smoking weed is through a pipe. It is a simple yet effective way to smoke your joint. You’ll only need to put your weed in the bowl, light it and then inhale from the mouthpiece.
Have you ever had weed but no pipes to smoke it? Every Marijuana smoker has some creativity in them when it comes to making DIY devices to get high. Well, here’s how to make weed pipe with some common material found at home.
What You Need to Make a Smoking Pipe
When we talk of a homemade smoking pipe, we’re looking at using all kinds of material lying in the house. It could be empty plastic bottles, fruits and vegetables, pens, and soda cans, among other things. Candy tubes and plastic straws also work well with crafty stoners.
You’ll also need some sello-tape to cover the holes in your homemade pipes. Chewing gum can also effectively seal up holes, although it’s not recommended.
For the bowl, you’ll need aluminum foil. Avoid plastics as they will usually burn up. To protect your plastic pipe from burning, prickle holes in the aluminum foil and use in to wrap around the plastic.
Items like metal cans are pretty much easier to use. You’ll just poke holes, and voila! You have a device to smoke from.
Before you set out to make yourself a smoking pipe, look at these three insightful tips.
- Keep away plastic bowls. As much as you may be too desperate to hit a joint and in a hurry, please avoid using plastic bowls as they’ll melt, which can be toxic. You can use plastic to hold smoke.
- Use a screen to keep away unwanted material like ash from contaminating your smoke.
- Carefully select the food items to use. They should be fresh and ripe to give you a perfect experience.
How to Make Weed Pipe Easily
Now, let’s get innovative.
1. Apple Pipe
An apple is one of the most straightforward fruit you can use. You can easily get one in the kitchen, and they have good taste even when smoking.
- Pick a ripe apple that is sturdy enough to stand the heat and smoke.
- Use a sharp knife to cut off the upper part of the apple, where the stem is. Create a hollow from the cut end to create space for the bowl.
- Prick a hole on one side of the apple using a pencil or skewer. This hole should be perpendicular to the first hole, meeting at the middle. To make sure they meet, blow through one hole to ensure it is well connected to the other.
- Poke small holes on an aluminum foil and then use it to line your bowl. The aluminum foil keeps your cannabis dry while the holes allow air circulation and passage of smoke.
- Fill the foil with your marijuana, and light it. Inhale smoke through the hole at the side.
The exact process applies to any other fruit like banana, bell pepper, potatoes, and zucchini.
2. Pen Pipe
If you don’t have a fruit or vegetable in the house, you might not lack a pen. And if you do, you can always get a cheap pen around you. A pen smoking pipe is a fun DIY you can easily make at home.
- Take a pen that you can easily disassemble the metal cap. Remove the front and back parts to separate them from the ink refill.
- Place the metal cap backward or in the opposite of the usual way to make a v-shaped bowl.
- Gently fill the bowl with weed and light it up.
- Enjoy your smoke from the other end of the pen, which now acts as a mouthpiece.
3. Soda Can Pipe
You can easily take a hit from a soda can if you lack sophisticated smoking devices. A can offers you a substantial metal container to smoke in.
- Using a sharp knife, make a hole at the bottom side of the can. This will act as a bowl. It should be spacious enough to fit your herb.
- Create a second hole on the upper side of the can to create a mouthpiece.
- Fill the bowl with marijuana, light it, and enjoy the smoke. As simple as that!
4. Metal Pipe
Sometimes you’re too desperate to get high, which necessitates desperate measures.
Grab a metal pipe, and play around with it to create a simple metal smoking pipe. Ensure the airflow is maintained and the bowl is in a good position.
Just be innovative enough to come up with something from it.
5. Bamboo Pipe
This one here is another innovative way to make a smoking pipe from natural material.
- Take a thin bamboo piece, about 2 inches wide, and cut it. Drill a hole in the middle of the stem creating a bowl at the end covered with a wood membrane. The hole on the other end will be your mouthpiece.
- Place your weed in the bowl, and you’re ready to go.
