DIY Smoking Utensils - Part 2
Part two of our DIY smoking utensils blog highlights a few more homemade contraptions to toke with in a pinch.
- Find a bottle and rinse it out. Dry it well and then discard the cap.
- Use a knife or other sharp object to carve a 3mm hole about 2 inches from the bottom.
- Place a hollowed out pen tube in the hole and ensure it is airtight by using electrical tape to "putty" the seam.
- Attach your bowl in the makeshift downstem. In a tight spot a small piece of foil can be utilized, but for health purposes an actual bowl from an old bong is best.
- Fill with water so the bottom of your stem is covered. Yes tha'ts right, this piece is going to be a water bong.
- Poke a carb hole in the side above the water line about halfway down the bottle.
- Put your smoking product in the bowl and enjoy.
- Find a pen that can be disassembled with a metal cap. Discard everything except the empty pen tube and metal pen tip.
- Press the point of the pen inwards at the top of the tube, creating a bowl.
- Fill the top of the pen with herb of choice and enjoy.
- Find a used toilet paper roll. (If you live with lazy room mates, it is still on the dispenser with a fresh unused roll on top)
- Make a small puncture on the body of the roll with a knife or safety pin. This hole shouldn’t be any bigger than tip of the pinky finger size. Shove existing bowl from broken bong or pipe into hole.
- Cover one open end with your hand and inhale through the other open end. When you get your desired rip, let your hand off the makeshift basic carb.
When you have plenty of material to smoke and nothing to smoke it out of, refer back to this guide. Stubborn smokers don’t give up, much like Goonies never say die. Keep in mind a couple of crucial points, though. When eating an edible object you have employed to smoke through, don’t ingest anything that has become dirty due to your product because… yuck. Grown up rule number two is avoid burning aluminum and plastic like the plague. Some of this might take you back to the days of teenage sneaky smoking. But when your adult smoking accessories are broken, in the shop, or on their way through post from EveryoneDoesIt.com, these quick fixes will do the trick in a jiffy.
