How to Use a Gravity Bong

Once your homemade gravity bong is complete, you’re ready to smoke. Using a gravity bong is easy. After all, physics does all of the work for you. Once your piece is constructed, follow these simple steps for successful smoking out of a gravity bong:

  • Fill up the large bottle base until the small bottle is submerged and the waterline reaches about two inches below the bowl.

  • Fill your bowl with bud and light.

  • As you light, begin to slowly pull upwards on the small bottle. The chamber should begin to fill with smoke.
  • Continue pulling upwards until you have collected your ideal amount of smoke.
  • When you’re ready to inhale, unscrew the bottlecap bowl and quickly inhale the smoke out of your DIY gravity bong while pushing down on the smaller chamber.

As a word of caution, it may be wise to have a glass of ice water and some throat lozenges nearby. Gravity bongs can collect far more smoke than the standard water pipe. As such, smoking from a gravity bong can be a little rough. Being prepared for coughing in advance will save you from some discomfort.
