10 Household Items For Smoking Cannabis

Everyday household items to smoke weed with.

Smoking weed can require creativity and innovation, especially when you’ve run out of rolling papers or misplaced your bowl. Most stoners have been caught in a pinch, with weed on hand but nothing to smoke out of.

Luckily, you needn’t venture far to improvise a good smoke session using simple household items in your home. 

Here are ten everyday items easily repurposed into functional cannabis consumption implements: 

1. Apples

Classic stoner ingenuity shows itself when crafting an apple pipe while bankrupt. All you need is this ubiquitous household fruit, a pen or pencil, foil, scissors, and your bud.

By poking a carb hole at the side and emptying the apple’s central core, you’ve fashioned a nifty natural pipe for terpene-rich hits. Scoop your weed right into the top, light up, and enjoy the sweet apple essence infusing the taste! 

2. Toilet Paper Roll + Dryer Sheets

Another pantry item lying around ripe for stoner engineering is an empty toilet paper roll stuffed partway with scented dryer sheets secured by a rubber band. Poke some small holes in the sides for extra airflow when inhaling.

Dryer sheets impart a pleasant aroma and help catch extra ash and particulates for a cleaner hit. Toke up this satisfyingly smooth smoking experience! 

3. Aluminum Cans

That empty soda or beer can also offers potential with the right DIY approach. Clean thoroughly and use scissors or a knife to carefully carve a smoking bowl depression about 1/3 down the side of the can.

Puncture the slightly indented bottom with a pen, safety pin, or thumbtack to create a carb hole. Shape a little foil over your new bowl, stuff the top with ground bud, and then insert a straw or pipe as a handy mouthpiece while firing up your newly constructed creation. 

4. Mason Jar

You’ve got an instant water-filtered smoking device with some basic hardware pickups from your local smoke shop and the likely mason jars lurking in every household kitchen.

Pop a slide bowl piece into the jar lid and insert the corresponding downstream mouthpiece into the bottom of a quart jar with just enough water to cover the lower portion when upright. Top with a weed mix, and let the bubbler percolations commence! 

5. Metal Socket + Bottle

Another handy item hiding in plain sight in most homes is the sockets attached to old lighting equipment like lamps. Unscrew a narrow 1/4-inch socket, pack it up with ground herb, and fit it snugly into the opening of a 2-liter plastic bottle you slice a carb hole into.

Light up and let the bottle fill with milky-white smoke until the chamber is opaque before inhaling through the mouth hole for a monster rip.

6. Fruit

Nature provides plenty of vessel choices, even when craft supplies run low in your refrigerator. Carefully carve out an apple, pear, pineapple, or watermelon bowl using kitchen tools.

Citrus fruits with already hollow centers, like orange and grapefruit halves, only require small modifications to transform into handy weed carriers as well. Scoop out the juicy contents, poke a hole on the side, stuff with frosty nuggets, and taste the tangy citric terpenes intermingle with every hit. 

7. Classic Potato

Embrace your inner MacGyver stoner by turning an ordinary spud into an improvised piece. Use a pen or skewer to pierce a long horizontal chamber through the potato’s center.

Then, re-seal by packing both ends tightly with foil. Poke a small carb hole on the side, top with ground herb, and insert a makeshift mouthpiece. When smoking through a potato, flavorful vapor combines with the starch’s natural essence for added taste. Baked with your baked – genius! 

8. Corn Cob Pipe

Put Grandpa’s retro accessory to new use because corn cob pipes prove incredibly effective vessels for cannabis. Naturally porous and lightweight, corn cobs feature a slender stem and bowl shape perfect for smoking.

Pack some sticky icky in the hollowed-out top and savor the corny flavor infusing the rich smoke. Stalks from sweet corn, peppers, carrots, and other household veggies can also work in a pinch!

9. Magnifying Glass

When all else fails, turn to the sun goddess herself for an assist. By focusing natural light beams through a standard magnifying glass, you can ignite a finely ground pile of weed substituted for traditional paper.

It may take some practice concentrating the rays just right over your herb mound. But once mastered, this survival tactic leaves you off-the-grid ready for a solar-powered sesh anywhere. 

10. Your Bare Hands

And for the truly bankrupt DIY diehards – present your best Duck Bill impression for a handy, hands-free smoking hack. Pinch your pointer finger and thumb together into the bill shape, and then hollow out your remaining fingers into a funnel/chamber.

Pack tightly with ground bud, wrap lips around the hand-pipe opening, and spark up to breathe in the Wonka-flavanoid fumes. Just beware of stinky resin fingers for hours post-smoke.

With a little stoner creativity and daring, countless household items offer potential weed-smoking solutions in a pinch. Next time your stash situation seems dire, scan your immediate environment with inventive eyes and get resourcefully elevated!
