Which strain better to use with real fruit than our Strawberry Banana Grape Strain?
Using fruit or vegetables to fashion a makeshift weed pipe is still popular, especially at parties. It’s simple to do and most people have at least something hanging around in the kitchen that can be used. Some foodstuffs are more suitable than others, that goes without saying.
All you really need is a plastic bottle, a pen weed pipe like the one described above and some water. Put a hole in the plastic bottle with the pen pointing down at an angle towards the base of the bottle. Then put some water in the bottle, coming up to just below that hole. Next you can light your cannabis and draw on it from the neck of the bottle.
If you don’t want to suck on the apple, you can insert something like an empty pen as a mouthpiece but most people don’t bother.
If you are looking for something a little more elegant, there are a couple of ways to make a gravity bong. Our favourite is fairly simple and designed to impress at parties.
Go to any party in states where cannabis is legal and you will undoubtedly find someone doing strange things to an apple. It’s a something like a right of passage for college kids. Turing an apple into a weed pipe is quick and easy. Simply cut a hole through the center stem but make sure that you don’t go right through to the bottom. Then carve a horizontal hole over into the central one so that you basically create an l-shaped tube. You now have your basic weed pipe.
- First you need a bucket or sink of water.
- Take an empty plastic bottle and cut the bottom off it.
- Fashion a bowl out of tin foil with some holes and fix this onto the neck.
- Load up your cannabis and then place the cut base in the water almost up to the neck.
- Light your buds and move the bottle slowly up without coming out of the water.
Of course, not all fruit and veg work – you won’t want to try banana or tomato for example. Then again, maybe you do!
Make a shallow dent in the side to form a small bowl and then use a pin to make a few holes in this area. Load your buds in the dent and then use the empty tab opening to take a draw. The advantage of this method over the pen is that you are less likely to get hot smoke burning your lips and can get a stronger draw.
Pipes, bongs, vapers and even fruit have been used to deliver that impromptu cannabis hit over the years. But what happens if you suddenly find yourself with some buds but nothing to smoke it with? The good news is that weed pipes can be made out of a whole bunch of stuff you may have lying arou …
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.
Grab a pencil or a chopstick if you have and drill a hole from one of the pointy ends of the baguette. At the end of that tube drill another smaller hole for your joint or a metal bowl.
Stick a joint in that hole and puff on your baguette like a French gangsta. Heads up – it might taste a bit toasty.
Alright so this basically boils down to the same thing with most of the smokable fruits and vegetables – take a pencil shove it all the way through the long part of the fruit.
Pipes have been a part of the cannabis culture for almost as long as there is one.
It would be a smart idea to always keep a couple of clean metal pipe bowls around the house which you can get at almost every weed supply store. If you don’t know what those are you can see examples on the image below.
Do you think we missed some great ideas for a makeshift pipe?
Take a used toilet paper roll and make 2 or 3 holes on one end of it, and cover that end with a thick cloth and a rubber band over it. The holes you just made will be the place where you will insert your joints or blunts.
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.
