For centuries weed smokers have been perfecting the art of creating their very own homemade pipe masterpieces with little more than a handful of random objects.

The best part about them is that chances are you already have everything you need just lying around the house.

The Apple Bong

The apple bong is a classic and has been around for ages. It is so popular that it has been portrayed across the big screen in movies for years. Most recently earning its very own scenes in the 40-Year-Old-Virgin and the Showtime TV series Nurse Jackie (season 2 episode 4). An apple bong is easy to make, requires only three things and is a must try for every stoner out there. The bonus of using a fruit base is that the sweet taste and smell of the apple you choose will contribute to the taste of your weed. Then, of course. There’s the fact you can eat it after making it more environmentally friendly than most other popular homemade contraptions. Creating one should take less than ten minutes and only requires two items.

For this one you will need:

  • 1 apple
  • 1 tool to cut into the apple with (small drill, knife, empty pen sleeve)

How to make a bowl for weed in 5 Steps:

Step 1 - Use your cutting device to drill into the top of the apple just enough to remove the stem. Once the stem is gone, it will be easier to see what you are doing.


Step 2 - Take your cutting tool and make a hole from the bottom of the apple through the center on top on an angle. Make sure you begin approximately half an inch away from the base to give you the corner needed to create a chamber.

Step 3 - Make your third and final hole with your cutting tool from the side of the apple into the center where the already created chamber is. This whole will need to be covered with the user’s finger when lighting the bowl, so make sure it is placed in a comfortable spot to reach.

Step 4 - Use your cutting tool (preferably a knife) to create a weed bowl in the top center of the apple.

Step 5 -Now you are ready to use it! Pack the weed bowl with as much cannabis as you’d like. Then place your finger over the side hole and your mouth over the bottom one. Now light it, you should be able to draw a toke with ease. If you can’t then double check to ensure the holes you created all lineup. Clean them out a bit and try again.

The most commonly asked question about the apple bong is, “If I eat the apple will it get me high?”. The answer to that is no. For the apple itself to contain enough THC to give you any buzz, you would need to use it for way longer than any apple could stay fresh for. While the apple may not get you stoned, this DIY bong is a fan favorite and the easiest way we know of to make a bong at home.
