A tried and true method is to take a piece of aluminium foil and poke some holes into it with a toothpick. Form the foil into a suitable-sized screen, and place it into the bowl just like you would an ordinary screen. No worries, the aluminium foil won’t melt when you’re smoking. That said, such a DIY screen may only last one or two sessions before losing its integrity.
The options are endless, try out some and choose your favourites.
Nonetheless, the factors mentioned don’t include “high.” That’s because, technically, you’ll be consuming the same amount of THC if you’re using the same quantity of the same marijuana flower. Even if not the most pleasant, these stoner MacGyver techniques will surely be effective. Just use them wisely.
Because steel screens are not as malleable as brass, fitting them into odd-shaped bowls can be a little more finicky.
You never know when there might come a time where all you have is your bud and nothing to smoke out of. These are hard times for every stoner. It’s always handy to know what other options you might find around the house.
We had to start with a method that has been, and still is, super popular. Now making a comeback on social media is smoking out of foodstuffs – the same method your grandpa used during his stoner days.
Let’s first make it clear that the following methods should only be used as last resorts. If you can go out and buy yourself a glass piece, do that. These aren’t materials traditionally used to smoke weed. A proper bong or pipe will always do your bud more justice. The flavour, the burn, and the smoothness will all be better from an object specially made with these factors in mind.
There is really no “best” type of screen—what’s most important is that it fits snugly into your bowl. You know your screen fits if it doesn’t pop out after pressing it down into your bowl. The rest, whether you prefer steel, brass, or glass screens, is up to you.
Make sure you learn the best techniques to save you in your time of greatest need. You never know when you might need a backup bong. Luckily, it’s easier to make than you think!
It's 3am and you finally finished that paper. There's not a place open and you still want that smoke before bed. We have the solution for you!
This is pretty much the same deal as The Toilet Bowl, except for the cloth part, as you don’t have to plug on end. All you have to do is drill a couple holes for your joints to stick ‘em in and pull.
- Reusable pipes
- One-and-done pipes which are not to be reused
Pipes have been a part of the cannabis culture for almost as long as there is one.
Apples have been most commonly turned into pipes. As you can see from the image below, you’ll need a pencil to push it through the apple through the middle (sideways) and make a tube, and make another hole where the stem is to connect it with the tube. The hole where the stem was will be your bowl area in which you should pack weed.
You should use an even thinner piece of bamboo, preferably one with the wood membrane on the thin end of the stick which will serve as protection against ashe going in your mouth.
These will come in handy a lot of times when you want to make a makeshift pipe and they help you turn almost anything into a pipe with just a little effort.
In general, there are 2 types of pipes, depending on the materials the pipe is made of:
It’s important that you do this right and don’t be afraid to use a bit more foil. If you don’t do this part right the tape might melt and then your pipe might get ruined.
Soda cans are even easier to turn into a pipe than a plastic water bottle. Push the can on two sides near the bottom in so you make a little indentation, and then pierce the indented part with a needle or pen so you make a little grill. The grill will hold you weed in place and not let any ashe or weed fly into your mouth while hitting it. Make a hole above it for a little ventilation and easier hitting and you should be ready to light it up!
Pipes are an important staple in the cannabis culture and one of the favorite DIY stoner projects. We teach you how to make 6 unique pipes.
