What Is A Gravity Bong?
A gravity bong, also known as a ‘geeb’, is a type of smoking device that uses atmospheric pressure to smoke cannabis. It can be made from many different materials, but the most common is a plastic bottle.
The bottom of the bottle is cut off and replaced with a bowl of cannabis. The top of the bottle is filled with water, and the bowl is lit. As the smoke accumulates in the bottle, the user slowly lifts it out of the water.
When the bottle is high enough, the user removes their mouth from the opening and gravity pulls the smoke into their lungs.
A gravity bong is a great way to smoke cannabis if you are a beginner. The water filters out the harmful carcinogens, and the gravity pulls the smoke into your lungs, making it easier to hit than a traditional bong.
Gravity bong users report a different type of high
There’s no doubt that a gravity bong produces an intense high – but does it affect the type of high you experience?
Some people believe that because a gravity bong takes smoke directly into the lungs, it produces a much faster and more intense high. But does this actually make a difference?
Are They Worth The Effort To Make Or Purchase?
Gravity bongs are one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis, and for good reason – they’re easy to make and can provide an incredibly powerful high. But are they worth the effort?
For newbies or those with a low tolerance, gravity bongs might be too much. They can amplify the effects of cannabis, which can be overwhelming for some people. But for those with more experience or a higher tolerance, gravity bongs can be a fun and easy way to get high.
What Type Of Container Should The Bong Be Made From?
Making a gravity bong is a popular way to get high, but it’s important to use the right materials. Many people use plastic bottles when making a gravity bong, but this can be risky.
Chemicals released from the plastic can contaminate the marijuana and change the taste. Glass or silicone containers are better options, but if you have to use a plastic bottle, be aware of the risks.
Build Your Bong
Now that you know a little about gravity bongs, it’s time to build your own! This is a really easy process, but we will outline the basics for you.
What you need:
- A large bottle or container – this will be your “bong”
- A piece of tubing – this will be your “downstem”
- A bowl – this will hold your cannabis
- scissors or a knife
Step 1: Cut your bottles
Now that you have your bottle, it’s time to start building your bong.
If you are using a small bottle, cut off the bottom third of the bottle and use this as your chamber. If you are using a large bottle, skip this step.
Step 2: Form the bowl
Now that you have your supplies, it’s time to build your bong!
First, take the lid from the smaller bottle and poke a hole in it. It should be about the diameter of your pinky, as this is what you will draw air out of. From there, wrap the cap in aluminum foil and shape it so that it can hold your weed. Remember,
you will need to screw the lid back on, so be sure to make the divot at the top of the cap. The deeper it is, the better it will hold it all.
Step 3: Prep your bong
So, you want to make a bong? Well, first you’ll need a few supplies. For the body of your bong, you’ll need a large container and a small bowl. The small bowl should fit snugly inside the mouth of the larger container.
You can use any type of container for the larger bong, but a 2-liter bottle or a bucket works best.
Step 4: Submerge the smaller bottle
If you want to build your own bong, it’s actually not that difficult. All you need is a small bottle, a larger basin, and some weed. Here’s how to do it:
- 1. Submerge the smaller bottle into the larger basin, but make sure the top doesn’t get wet! The last thing you want is soaked weed.
- 2. Carefully screw the lid on.
- 3. Now, light up the weed and suck on the smaller bottle. As you inhale, the smoke will travel through the water and into the larger bottle.
Step 5: Fill the chamber
Now that you have your small bottle filled with smoke, it’s time to build your bong.
Take the bigger bottle and cut off the bottom so that it’s about 6-8 inches tall. Now use the small bottle to puncture a hole in the center of the bottom of the big bottle. Make sure that the hole is big enough for the small bottle to fit snugly in.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Now that you have the water pipe, it’s time to learn how to use it. First, take a hit and enjoy! Do this by unscrewing the cap and putting your mouth up to opening of the bottle.
Gently push the smaller bottle back down, re-submerging it into the water. As water enters the bottle, it will force the smoke into your lungs. The smoke should be cool after being filtered from the water, but it should yield a powerful high.
