If you’re bored of smoking from your run on the mil bongs, we have a pineapple bong made with the complete elegance of ripe fruit. This alternative is not only fun but also friendly to your pocket.
A pineapple bong is not necessarily that high-end bong perfectly designed like a pineapple. You can turn your simple beaker bong into a pineapple bong by adding a few themes or make your own pineapple bong from a real pineapple fruit.
Read on to understand a pineapple bong and the items you need to make yours at home.
What is Pineapple Bong?
As the name suggests, a pineapple bong creates the feeling like you’re smoking dry herbs from a pineapple. Manufacturers already have designed bongs resembling a delicious pineapple fruit from the crown to the slip. Most of these pineapple bongs are made of a resilient silicone material or borosilicate glass; looking at them is enough to trigger cravings.
Nonetheless, any bong can be referred to as a pineapple bong even if it does not resemble the fruit but incorporates any pineapple theme. For instance, we have smokers using pineapple-flavored juice as bong water in their beaker or mason jar bongs. If you want a pineapple bong for a one-time event, you can make one from real pineapple fruit and take a flavorful and smooth hit. How, you ask? Keep reading.
Parts of a Pineapple Bong
Before you learn how to make your own bong from pineapple fruit, you need to understand all the crucial parts of a bong and their location. It’s worth noting that you can pretty much make a bong from the most readily available fruits, provided you understand the mechanism and functionality. Let’s take a look at the basic parts of an actual bong before we get to the pineapple fruit.
The bong bowl is the part that holds your herbs and the place where combustion happens. Once you light up the bowl, the smoke forms immediately and sucks down the airways below it. Note that the amount and speed of the smoke moving down the airways depends on how soft or hard you inhale. It’s recommended to start with a slow inhale to allow time for the smoke to build up, filter, and cool in the water chamber.
The downstem channels smoke from the bowl to the water chamber and act as a filter. Since the downstem is always submerged in water when the water bong is in use, it can’t do its magic without the water. The water helps the downstem create tiny bubbles allowing more surface area coverage and enhancing the cooling effect.
The water chamber is perhaps the biggest part of your bong and holds the water crucial for smoke filtration and cooling. The water chamber works in tandem with the downstem but does not need it to function. In the case of a pineapple bong, smoke will move from the bowl to the chamber through the downstem before proceeding to the mouthpiece.
The tube resembles a test tube but might be wider or slim, depending on your bong. It acts as the medium that delivers the filtered and cool smoke to your mouth.
We have additional parts, such as percolators, ice catchers, and splash guards, mostly found in high-end bongs. Notably, the percolator is an advanced smoke filtration in addition to the water chamber. Essentially, a percolator bong creates more bubbles than a standard bong cooling down the smoke even further.
An ice catcher, also known as an ice chamber, is a section in advanced bongs that hold ice cubes for further smoke cooling. The smoke passes through the water chamber before reaching the ice cubes, which keeps it chilling once more as it approaches your lips.
The Splash Guard
As the name suggests, this part prevents the bong water from splashing into your mouth. The dome-shaped splash guard comes with cuts and slits, which let the smoke through but traps the unwanted water from the chamber. Once the smoke passes through the splash guard, it heads to your throat and lungs resulting in a crisp, smooth, and flavorful hit.
How To Make a Bong Using the Pineapple Fruit
Now that you understand the different parts of a bong, you can make a list of what you need and imitate the shape. Be sure to choose a large pineapple that can hold a good amount of water for the best smoking sesh. It would help if you had a bong bowl, downstem, inhaler tube, drill, plate, spoon, clean water, and basin.
Steps To Make a Pineapple Bong
Once you have all your materials, pick a pineapple and follow the steps below.
- Cut the top of the fruit and make it your bong lid. Be sure to make a straight cut.
- Use a spoon and knife to empty the fruit.
- Make a hole in the cut lid using a corkscrew or drill.
- Attach the inhaler tube to this hole
- Make another hole on the upper part of the pineapple and angle it downwards to hold the downstem.
- Add the clean water until the bottom of the downstem is fully submerged.
Now you’re good to smoke.
- Fill the bowl with your herbs and enjoy the pineapple bong.
