How to Make a Gravity Bong?

For a beginner, it can be a little difficult and intimidating to make your first gravity bong. There are many folks out there that don’t know where to start from. So, for all those people out there, Olivastu is here to help. Go!

Step 1:

 How to Make a Gravity Bong

Your first step would be to cut the bottom part of the smaller-sized plastic bottle with the box cutter. The upper half would be used from this bottle.

Step 2:

Now, take the cap of the bottle and create a hole in it. Remember that this hole will play a big role as you will draw air from it. So do make it big enough for you to take a satisfying drag.

Step 3:

Get the alumnium foil and cut a square-sized shape of it. Take this square piece of aluminium and place your cap on it. Align it to the centre. Place your pinky finger in the middle and carefully wrap the foil around it. It will be inserted inside the hole of the bottle cap.

Step 4:

Insert a bit of the foil in the cap and wrap the rest around it. Carefully smoothen the edges around the cap and poke holes around the depression of the cap hole. The holes should be made in such a way that it doesn’t tear down the rest of the foil.

Step 5:

Take the big bottle and cut the bottom part of it. Remember that the remaining, bottom part of the bottle will work as your bowl. The bigger the bowl is, the harder hits you will get.

Step 6:

Take the foil-covered bottle cap and load the indentations with your fav cannabis. The load on the cap should not be messy. 

Step 7:

Place the smaller-sized bottle’s upper part into the water-filled bowl of the bigger bottle. Screw the flower-filled bottle cap carefully on the smaller bottle. 

Step 8:
