Follow these simple steps to craft your apple bong/pipe

Step 1: Gather your supplies 

Before you embark on this DIY adventure, make sure you have these essentials:

  • A fresh, crisp apple (the fresher, the better!)
  • A poking tool, like a ballpoint pen, screwdriver, or toothpick
  • A small piece of aluminum foil
  • Cannabis (use a grinder for the best experience)
  • A lighter

Step 2: Prepare the apple 

First things first, wash your apple. Then, remove the apple stem to reveal a natural bowl at the top of the apple. This is where your herb will sit.

Step 3: Craft the bowl 

Using your tool, carefully poke small holes in your aluminum foil and place it on top of the apple where the stem was. This will be the central channel and bowl that holds your weed.

Step 4: The mouthpiece and carb 

Next, you’ll create the mouthpiece and carb hole. Poke a second hole on the side of the apple, ensuring it intersects with the first hole. This side hole is your mouthpiece, and the opposite side will be your carb, which is crucial for airflow regulation. Poke your third hole there.

Step 5: Add the percolator 

For a smooth smoking experience, add a percolator by creating a small reservoir in the central tunnel. This helps with airflow and smoke filtration.

Step 6: Pack and light up 

Pack your cannabis at the top where the stem was. Be sure to read the label to check out the THC percentage and dose accordingly.

To smoke, hold the apple, cover the carb with one finger, light the bowl, and inhale through the mouthpiece. Remember to tilt the apple slightly to optimize smoke flow.

Now enjoy your smoke session!

Why an apple bong?

Not only is this homemade pipe a handy DIY project, but the fresh apple also adds a subtle fruity taste to your cannabis when compared with a traditional glass bong, glass pipe, or rolling papers, enhancing the smoking experience.

Plus, it’s an eco-friendly and safer option compared to other makeshift smoking devices like soda cans. And when you’re done, you can simply compost the apple!

Why smoke cannabis?

Smoking cannabis (compared to dabbing, vaping, or edibles) offers consumers the plant’s most natural state. Smoking weed means you get all of the terpenes, cannabinoids (like THC, CBD, CBN, and more), and plant compounds that create an entourage effect of symbiotic benefits.
