Every stoner has gone through the struggle of wanting to smoke weed but not having anything to smoke it with. Fortunately, you can make your own smoking device for weed out of easily accessible food items. Much like rolling a joint, knowing how to carve fruit into a pipe is also a useful life skill. This article will show you exactly which fruits to use as a smoking device for weed in and how! Check our list below.
DIY Bongs and Pipes
The purpose of any smoking device is to separate your mouth from the hot cherry to prevent you from getting burnt. You can pretty much smoke out of anything, as long as you have a clear airway that allows you to inhale the smoke without burning your mouth. There are two options when making a DIY smoking device. You can either make a pipe or a bong depending on how much time and effort you want to put into the sesh. Pipes are simple to make and easy to carry around, whereas bongs take a little more effort and time to make but will give you big and smooth hits. Here are the top 7 food items you can repurpose to smoke out of.
Apple an ultimate smoking device for weed
Apples are the classic, and arguably the best food to smoke out of. Tried and true, tested by time, every stoner has tried or at least seen someone smoke out of an apple. They are easy to obtain, poke holes in, dispose of, and they even have a built-in bowl for your weed.
To make a pipe out of an apple (and many other fruits and veggies), first, remove the stem– that little divot where the stem used to be will act as your bowl. You can also carve it out more to make a bigger bowl if the divot is too shallow. Then all you need to do is poke three holes. A corer would be the most effective tool but you can also just use a pen if you don’t have a corer.
- Hole #1: Make a tunnel from the divot down to the centre of the apple.
- Hole #2: Poke a hole through the side of the apple that connects to the tunnel down the centre– that will be the mouthpiece.
- Hole #3: Turn the apple a third of the way around and poke another hole through the side that also connects to the center tunnel–that will be your carb.
And that’s it! As long as all three holes converge at the center then you’re good to go.
To smoke out of this apple pipe, pack some weed into the bowl at the top of your apple, put your mouth over the mouthpiece tunnel and your thumb over the carb, then just smoke like you would any other pipe.
Keep this process in mind because you can use it to make a pipe out of basically any fruit. Other fruits that you could try this method on are pears, oranges, or bananas but apples work the best in my opinion.
Jalapeños an easy to make weed smoking tool
Probably the easiest and fastest food to repurpose, jalapeños make the perfect one-hitter pipe to spice up your sesh, literally. All you have to do is pull out the stem and bite the other end and bam, you have a mini pipe that will make your lips tingle.
Squash a pipe-shaped food to smoke weed
Squash is a pretty intuitive food to smoke out of because it’s already shaped like a pipe. The hard thing about making a squash pipe is that it’s harder to poke holes in compared to fruits which are softer. Also, if you have a long squash you have to make sure the holes are straight so that they all converge at one point. Carve the bowl on the wide end so that you smoke out of the thinner end. You’ll be surprised how natural it feels smoking out of a squash.
Starburst for sweet loving stoners
Want to have some sweet and fruity fun? Try smoking out of a pipe made out of Starburst candy! Unwrap a handful of starbursts, stack them up, and squish them together into a long rectangular block. (You can shape it however you like as long as you can poke the three holes and get them to converge at one point.) Hollow out a hole lengthwise, carve a bowl on the top of one end, poke another hole on the side as your carb, and you’re ready to blaze. This will be a tasty one!
Watermelons, or pretty much any type of melon, is great for making water bongs. For convenience, use a smaller melon, preferably one you can hold with one hand.
First, you want to cut an opening at the top and use it as a lid. Next, scoop out the insides of the melon and keep the juice in there. Then, cut a hole on the side diagonally for the down stem and bowl.
You can use an extra bong bowl piece you have lying around, or you can make your own using a carrot. It’s very similar to making a pipe: just poke a hole through the carrot lengthwise, carve out a little bowl to pack your weed on one end, and stick it into the hole on the side of the melon.
