10. Now it’s time to use your apple pipe. Hold the apple in one hand with your finger covering the carb and use your other hand to light the greens, pulling the hit through the hole near the bottom of the apple.
An apple bong is a homemade pipe constructed from an apple that is used to smoke cannabis. Apple bongs are considered one of the healthier options for DIY smoking devices, especially when compared to constructing pipes of tin foil or soda cans. Discreet and inexpensive, the apple bong is a favorite of cannabis consumers who have no papers or pipes, those who want to easily dispose of consumption evidence, or those who don’t want to go through the hassle of cleaning a bong. Read on to learn how to make your own apple bong.

Crafting an apple bong may seem complex, but in just a few simple steps you will soon be smoking cannabis out of your own healthy fruit. Here’s how to create your own classic apple pipe:
7. Using the screwdriver, make a third hole, about an inch from the top of the apple on the opposite side of the mouth opening. Push the screwdriver into the apple until it meets the center chamber you’ve created. This hole acts as the carb, so it should be in a place that’s convenient for when you light up.
5. Remove the screwdriver. Take out the apple core and dispose of it.
2. First, remove the apple stem, by either using your fingers to twist it out or cutting it out with a knife. Make sure to remove the entire stem down to its base.

Apple bongs are well-known for their discretion and easy disposal characteristics. Apples are also incredibly inexpensive and make for a good substitute when rolling papers or a personal pipe aren’t available or accessible. Cannabis consumers also don’t lose THC resin to glass in the same way as a traditional bong, so you get more THC bang for your buck and don’t have to deal with the hassle of cleaning your pipe after use. Finally, you theoretically could eat the apple once you’re done smoking — though we wouldn’t recommend it.

Despite the seeming complexity, it’s pretty easy to make an apple pipe.
Although apples have enjoyed most of the DIY pipe limelight, a number of fruits and vegetables can function as a makeshift piece. Many have the same principle, while others can be made into chillums, etc. Try them all out, and maybe experiment with different types of strains. This could be conducive to experiential experimentation, particularly in terms of aromatic flavors.
At some point in your smoking life, you’re going to find yourself without a pipe and without papers, but with some great weed you’d really like to smoke. There’s one time-tested trick to get you high in this situation, and it’s making an apple pipe.
Step 2: Bore a hole where you removed the stem. Using a pen, bamboo skewer, knife, or a screwdriver, drill through from the top towards the opposite end. Don’t go all the way through, though. You’re going to want to stop halfway to keep your bowl airtight. Don’t make it too wide either; the top is going to function as the bowl for holding the bud.
