There’s something about Halloween and weed that makes a perfect pair. The holiday encourages creativity and imagination as humans dress up as ghouls, goblins, and ghosts. Cannabis encourages creativity and feeds the imagination, too, especially when it comes to creative ways to smoke. That’s why this year we’re bringing you the ultimate Halloweed DIY: The Pumpkin Bong.
How to Make a Pumpkin Bong
Before gathering the supplies needed to make a pumpkin bong, let’s consider the most important element: the pumpkin. Choosing the right pumpkin comes down to use and preference! If the bong will be passed around, look for something light enough to pass easily, but large enough to avoid getting the lighter flame too close to your face. We recommend a 6”-8” pumpkin for passing. If the bong will remain in one place, go as large as you like! Just keep in mind that the larger the pumpkin, the larger the chamber space.
- 1-2 downstems (One acts as a mouthpiece and is optional)
- Smoking bowl that fits downstem
- Scooping tool
Begin by washing the pumpkin, tools, and glassware.
Cut a circular top out around the stem, holding the knife at a 45-degree angle pointing towards the center. This angle prevents the top from falling back into the pumpkin.
Scoop out the seeds and guts using the scooping tool.
Next, you’re going to mark where the downstem and the mouthpiece will go. Refer to the diagram to visualize the placement.
Start with the downstem. The bottom of the downstem should be about an inch from the inside bottom of the pumpkin when held at a 45-degree angle. Mark the placement for the downstem with the marker. Repeat for the mouthpiece.
Hold the screwdriver at a 45-degree angle and push into the mark for the downstem. Be careful not to puncture other parts of the pumpkin. Continue to widen the hole using the screwdriver or other carving tool, maintaining the angle, until you can push the downstem through the hole. Be careful not to make the hole too large. Repeat for the mouthpiece.
All that’s left to do is fill with water, grind some herb, and light up in the spooky spirit of the season! And it’s all treats, no tricks with Halloween deals in our dispensaries in Springfield, Neosho, and Humansville so come check it out!
