All About Gravity Bongs
Gravity bongs is mostly used for obvious reasons and are an excellent way to get the most out of your smoke. The way gravity bongs work is by the principle of gravity; what goes up, will always come down.
There are two types of gravity bongs; the bucket bong and waterfall bong. What the two have in common is that they both use air pressure and water to produce smoke from one’s stash. The only difference between the two is the number of containers that are used to produce the preferred effect.
The bucket gravity bongs makes use of two buckets, while the waterfall gravity bongs uses only one bucket and that is their only difference.
The general principle of the gravity bongs is to allow smoke to rise, and thus little effort is used to inhale by the user. Pressure is the name of the game, and we will look at how to make the gravity bongs and use it effectively.
How the Gravity Bongs Work
The Bucket Gravity Bongs
This bong is usually made of two containers, one large one, preferably a bucket, and a smaller one that will fit into the large one. The best small container to use is a plastic bottle of around 2 liters.
The base of the plastic is cut off, and a small hole is pierced in the bottle’s cap which will also hold the bowl. This is where smoke will exit ready to be inhaled. The cap is then filled with stash and lit, and the bottle is then immersed up to the neck level into the bucket which is filled with water.
To enable one to smoke, the bottle is then slowly lifted out of the water, but not completely, and the smoker then places their mouth at the bottle cap opening to get smoke. To fill the bottle with more smoke, the bottle needs to be put back into the water again.
The internal pressure that occurs when the bottle is pulled upwards and pushed down again is what enables the bottle to be filled up with smoke.
In the waterfall bong, a bucket is not required. All that is needed is a plastic 2-liter bottle, a rubber stopper and a nozzle which also acts as the bowl and prevents the stash from going into the bottle. The bottle is then filled with water, and the bowl is lit.
A small hole is then made at the bottom of the bottle, draining out the water and filling the bottle with smoke from the lit bowl, as the water slowly drains out of the bottle. When all the water is out of the bottle, the user can then uncap as the water will have been replaced by the smoke.

How to Make a Gravity Bongs

- Make a bowl using foil paper which can easily be found inside cigarette packs or the one used to wrap food. Place a small piece of the foil paper around the pierced bottle cap, making it go through the hole on the cap, to form a pocket. This is where you will place your stash.
- It is now time to get a bucket filled with water and submerge the bottle in the bucket. Place the stash in the already created bowl and light it.
- Screw the bottle cap with the stash onto the bottle and tighten it. The gravity bongs is now ready, and all you need is to slowly push it in and out of the water for the smoke to fill the bottle. To smoke, all you need is to unscrew the cap of the bottle off.
