11 Best Gravity Bongs – You won’t believe No. 5!
How does a gravity bong work?
Gravity bongs work by submerging a small bottle into a gravity bong bowl which sits on top of a larger bottle or platform. Then the user lights up the cannabis. As the cannabis burns, smoke slowly forms and heats the water up. As the smoke fills the gravity bong, one pushes the bottle down to let gravity push the smoke into the lungs.
Gravity Bong Benefits
Whether it’s an Infinity Waterfall bong, steampunk bong, or portable gravity bong – given how gravity bongs works, tokers will experience a quicker hit because the smoke inhaled is heavily concentrated. These amazing bongs aren’t exactly for the faint of heart as it can be cumbersome and/or overwhelming for a newbie toker. With every hit, these cool gravity bongs deliver both a powerful hit and a powerful high.
Making your own Gravity Bong
If you want a throwback experience to gravity bongs – here is a quickie 101 on a homemade gravity bong, the original gravity pipe.
Materials needed to make a homemade gravity bong:
- Plastic bottle (between 16-20 oz is ideal)
- 2-litre plastic bottle
- Aluminum foil
- Box cutter or sharp knife
- Poking device
Steps to follow:
- Use the box cutter to cut the bottom of the smaller bottle. Depending on how much of a hit you want will vary on how much of the bottle remains.
- Cut the bottom of the 2-litre plastic bottle.
- Unscrew the cap of the smaller bottle and use the box-cutter to make a hole in the bottle cap. This is where you will draw air but make sure it’s not so large of a hole that the cannabis on the aluminum foil will fall through.
- Wrap the cap with aluminum foil to create a small gravity bong bowl.
- Poke holes in the aluminum foil – approximately 3-5 for ventilation.
- Place your cannabis on the foil-wrapped bottle cap.
- Submerge smaller bottle in the water-filled bottom half of the larger bottle, just until the cap remains above the water – then screw the foil-wrapped bottle cap.
- Light the cannabis.
- Once the bottle fills with smoke, unscrew cap and place into your mouth…
- Push bottle back into the water which will result in smoke being propelled into your lungs.

If you’re thinking about making a gravity bong from items you already have at home, check out our step-by-step guide. It may not be that impressive, but it works when you’re in a pinch!
Double chamber New Amsterdam bong
From lamps to vases, I’m sure you’ve seen some crazy creations made from upcycled alcohol bottles. If you’re just as into vodka as you are into pot, add this homemade bong to your project list. With two large chambers, the water bong has lots of space for water filtration and for smoke to accumulate, so it probably works like a charm and gives super comfortable hits. It’s just made from two New Amsterdam bottles (a 375 ML bottle and a 1.75 L bottle) stacked over one another. If you want even smoother rips, add an ash catcher like this Instagram user did.
