There really is no shortage of creative ways to smoke some weed. And hey, it’s
A pumpkin bong is not your average apple pipe… but don’t let this large vegetable intimidate you out of this stoner experience. Pumpkin spice latte? Nah — we’re here for the pumpkin spice bong. You only need a few items and the right attitude to put this Halloween stoner tradition into action.
So, let’s throw on
How Will a Pumpkin Bong Work?
A pumpkin bong works by lighting the weed and inhaling for the opposite side… okay, there are a few more steps before that, but they are simple and something you can accomplish in under an hour.
You have an important decision to make before getting started: the size of the pumpkin. The bigger the pumpkin, the higher the experience. If you want to go with a smaller-sized pumpkin, you can focus on delicious small rips instead of a lung-filling giant pumpkin.
But hey, pick your poison, and let’s proceed!
What You Need to Make Your Pumpkin Bong
What You’ll Need:
- One small, medium or giant pumpkin
- Two downstems (a one-hitter can do the trick in a pinch)
- Bowl piece
- Carving knife
- Cannabis flower
How to Make a Pumpkin Bong Step-by-Step
Time Needed: About 40 minutes
It’s just like making a Jack-o’-Lantern!
Step 1: Cut out the stem of your pumpkin
Using a carving knife, cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin around the stem. Then, use the stem as a handle to pull out this top piece and scrape off the attached seeds. Set this top piece aside to be used later as the lid.
Step 2: Scoop out the seeds
Use your spoon to scoop out the pumpkin seeds. When done, the inside should look scraped clean.
Step 3: Trace and cut some holes for the downstems
Using a marker, trace two downstem holes on opposite sides of the pumpkin. Using a knife, cut holes just inside the traced circles so the downstems can squeeze inside tightly.
Step 4: Plug in your downstems
Fit the downstems inside those holes, pointing them downward at roughly a 45-degree angle.
Step 5: Add water
Pour enough water inside the pumpkin to submerge the bottoms of the downstems in enough water for aeration.
Step 6: Put the lids back on the pumpkin
Put the top piece of the pumpkin back on as a lid. You are almost ready!
Step 7: Pack the bowl with weed and get pumpkin stoned!
Pack the bowl with your favorite cannabis flower and place it in one of the downstems. Grab your lighter and rip that pumpkin bong! Use the bowless downstem as your mouthpiece.
Tricks for Your Pumpkin Treat
You are ready to go. If you want to ensure that you have a great experience with your pumpkin, we have a couple of tricks you might want to try out.
We recommend using cold water in your pumpkin. Iced water is even better. If you decide to dump some warm water into the pumpkin, you might find your creation starting to turn bad quicker than you would hope. Cold water relaxes the lungs, especially if you take a big pumpkin rip.
Lastly, the pumpkin bong experience is sacred. Enjoy your pumpkin for one whole day before disposal (or turn it into a Jack-o’-Lantern!). This is to avoid any chances of developing mold and any contaminants in the bong.
Load a bowl. Smoke it. Repeat. Happy Halloween.
