• Glass or quartz screens
The easiest fruit to morph into a pipe is the apple. This sturdy yet soft treat will allow you to carve out a pipe system without much effort. Use an empty pen tube or a small knife to carve out the central stem, but not all the way down. Try not to go over three-quarters of the way through. With this hollowed out, do the same thing but perpendicular to your first carve. These two empty tubes should meet at the end.
Because steel screens are not as malleable as brass, fitting them into odd-shaped bowls can be a little more finicky.
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.
So, what pipe screen should you use with your homemade bong? And further, what do you do if there are no screens around?
You can also get pipe screens made from quartz, which are even more heat-resistant than glass. Replaceable glass or quartz screens aren’t as common as the aforementioned options, with most high-quality glass bongs incorporating borosilicate or quartz screens right into their design. These often feature decoratively placed holes instead of the ultra-fine mesh of brass or steel.
Brass screens are perhaps the most common, featuring in tobacco pipes and many glass and ceramic bongs. You can get them at just about any tobacco store or headshop for little money. These circle-shaped cut-outs are made from brass mesh, with each screen about the size of a small coin. Brass has the advantage that you can bend it easily; this way, you can fit these screens easily into various bowl sizes. If you happen to have brass screens that are a tiny bit too large for your bowl, you can easily cut them to size.

- The bucket gravity bong
- The waterfall gravity bong
There is really nothing bad to say about a bong. Your bong is a lot like your best friend, always available when you need him and never lets you down.
Stick a nug of bud in your left nostril, light the bud on fire, plug your right nostril, and inhale. Straight to the dome!
For example, mixing your ganja with tobacco (as is common) makes the end product a spliff, not a joint. Calling a spliff a joint, or vice versa, just makes you look silly. Don’t do it.
First, poke a hole in the bottom of your 2-liter bottle. Then poke or drill a hole through the bottle cap. Insert the stem of your bowl through the hole you just drilled. That’s it for the assembly. Easy, right? Here’s how to use the waterfall gravity bong.
Want a more technical explanation? We’ve got your back. The flame produced by a butane lighter burns at a pretty high temperature—around 3500℉. That’s really hot! Especially when you consider that your bud turns to smoke at around 450℉.
Dabbing makes use of dabs, also known as butane hash oil (BHO), which are an extremely potent extract of the cannabis plant. This solidified hash oil (the dab) is meant to be smoked with a rig, much like a bong bowl, except that, instead of a lighter, you use a blowtorch. Yes, that’s right, a blowtorch.
First, cut the bottom off a plastic bottle, remove the top, and set it aside for future use. Next, heat two butter knives (the wider the better) on the stove. Better yet, abscond with a blow torch—it’s much faster. Whatever source you use, heat the knives until they’re red hot.
Smoking out of a soda can is as juvenile, if not MORE juvenile, than the old apple pipe trick. At least with the apple you had a tasty, healthy treat when all was said and done.
