What is an apple pipe?
An apple pipe — sometimes called an apple bong — is a homemade pipe constructed from an apple that is used to smoke cannabis. Apple pipes are considered one of the healthier options for DIY smoking devices, especially when compared to constructing pipes of tin foil or soda cans. Discreet and inexpensive, the apple pipe is a favorite among cannabis consumers who have no papers or glass pipes on hand, want to easily dispose of consumption evidence, or don’t want to go through the hassle of cleaning a traditional device. Read on to learn how to make your own apple pipe.
How do you make an apple pipe?
Crafting an apple pipe may seem complex, but in just a few simple steps you will soon be smoking cannabis out of your own healthy fruit.
Here’s what you’ll need to make and use a classic apple pipe:
- an apple
- a toothpick
- a clean screwdriver or chopstick
- a lighter

1. Remove the apple stem, making sure to remove the entire stem down to its base. This divot in the apple will serve as your bowl.
2. Use your screwdriver or chopstick to poke a hole across the center of the apple. One hole will function as the base for your mouthpiece while the other will function as the carb.
3. Use your toothpick to poke a few holes in the top of the apple far enough to intersect with the hole you just made through the center of the apple. This will allow air to flow from the bowl to the mouthpiece without letting flower fall through.

4. Do a test run and inhale through the hole you’ve chosen to be your mouthpiece to ensure air can flow through properly.
5. Pack the top of the apple with weed.
6. Place your mouth on the hole you’ve chosen to be your mouthpiece and cover the other hole with your free hand as you light the weed in the bowl.
7. Inhale and enjoy.

Why should I make an apple pipe?
Apple pipes are well-known for their discretion and easy disposal characteristics. Apples are also incredibly inexpensive and make for a good substitute when rolling papers or a personal pipe aren’t available or accessible. Cannabis consumers also don’t lose THC resin to glass in the same way as a traditional pipe, so you get more THC bang for your buck and don’t have to deal with the hassle of cleaning your pipe after use. Finally, you theoretically could eat the apple once you’re done smoking — though we wouldn’t recommend it.

An apple pipe is a makeshift smoking device. To make one only requires an apple and a pen/pencil and about 30 seconds of time.
Step 1) Pull out the stem of the apple.
Step 2) The indentation in the middle of the apple (where the stem was) is the bowl. Push the pen/pencil halfway through the apple, but DO NOT go all the way to the bottom.
Step 3) Remove the pen/pencil and shove it straight through the apple perpendicular to the hole you just made. This creates the mouthpiece and the carb.
Step 4) Pack the bowl, smoke, and enjoy!
Screw that, you don’t need a pen to smoke out of an apple. All you need is an apple and a knife.
Pull out the stem and carve a little bowl at the top. Then cut a hole in the side and connect that hole to the bowl. Pack the bowl and smoke it. 🙂
Some consider it a fruit, but to many it is a ghetto smoking device. Created by the gods, the apple is to help those who are in desperate need of a smoking piece, or forgot where they put their pipe.
1. obtain the apple
2. carve out the core with a knife, so it has a decent sized bowl.
3. find a pen, and take the insides out of it so it’s just the “tube” of the pen.
4. stick the “tube” into a side of the apple so it enters the core. clean out the apple in the tube with something (one may use the inside of a mechanical pencil), then stick the tube back into the apple. This is now the mouth piece.
5. find a sheet of tinfoil. lay it down on a table (cloth or rag separating the two, recommended) and with a tac, or other pointy device, poke about 15-20 holes in the very center of the piece of tinfoil.
6. fold the tin foil over the hole of the apple, just enough so it has the perfect sized bowl. if needed, stick tacs through the tinfoil into the apple, making sure it won’t slide around.
7. breathe through the pen while observing the tinfoil. if the tinfoil doesn’t push down a little bit into the apple, then the tinfoil is folded tightly enough around the edges of the apple.
8. place marijuanna over the tiny holes that you have made earlier. you are now ready to test out your ghetto apple.
hey man, did you finish making that apple pipe?
yesterday i made an apple pipe, but i accidently burned through the tinfoil because i held the lighter too close.
