This one’s down and dirty, and super-easy if you’re in a bind. Heat two knives over a stove, campfire, grill, etc. Be careful not to burn yourself with the hot knives. Once the knives are extremely hot, take one, place your cannabis onto the blade (note: hash, extracts, and concentrates will work much better than flower), and then make a sandwich with the other hot knife on top and your weed in the middle. When smoke begins to rise, inhale. You can also use a paper towel roll or empty plastic bottle for a funnel.
To make your pipe, empty an aluminum-can beverage. Press a dent with your thumb, as this will serve as your “bowl.” Use a sharp object to poke a bunch of small holes in the dent and a larger hole on the side for a carb.
Smoking out of a soda can is one of the easiest, tried-and-true DIY methods for consuming the sweet leaf. If anything, it’s a high school right of passage.
What you’ll need: a plastic bottle, tin foil, a knife or scissors, and tape. Mold a bowl and stem out of the foil. Punch a hole in the bottle cap, and insert your homemade bowl into that. Cut the plastic bottle in half, take the top half of the bottle, and tape the ziplock bag to the now-open end of the bottle. Push the baggie into the bottle. Fill your bowl with bud, light it, and at the same time, pull the baggie out of the bottle, which will make the baggie fill with smoke. Then unscrew the cap and inhale. This guy’s pretty good at it!
Here’s an alternate method: Take a bucket or container that is bigger than the plastic bottle, and fill the container with water. Cut the plastic bottle in half and place the upper half into the larger container. Light your weed and slowly lift the bottle out of the container, which will fill the bottle with smoke. Then remove the bowl and inhale as you slowly push the bottle back into the water.

This one’s quick and cute. Take a ballpoint pen, remove the ink, and that’s the downstem. Fashion a bowl out of tin foil, punch some holes in it, and attach to the pen. Now take an empty, clean “Honey Bear” container, poke a small hole in the bear’s belly, and insert your pen-and-foil bowl. Add some water to the bear and draw from the yellow tip where the honey comes out, and pretty soon, you’ll feel like Goldilocks — just right.
Got killer weed but no bong? Well, it's time to get crafty and build yourself a pipe that would make Rube Goldberg proud.
