There’s a common misconception floating around that cannabis enthusiasts are lazy. When you stop to think about it, though, they’re some of the most creative people around. Let’s face it; things happen. Your pipe might break, or your grinder suddenly goes missing. These events don’t have to stop you from enjoying your session. In this article, we’ll provide you with a few unique hacks, including how to make an apple pipe.
How to Make An Apple Pipe That Works
Did your pipe break or mysteriously go missing? With this apple hack, you don’t have to begrudgingly forgo your smoke session. You can make a makeshift pipe using an apple, a toothpick, and a pen.
First, remove the apple stem. Next, use your toothpick to poke a hole straight down to the center of the fruit. Poke four to eight additional holes along the outside of the main one where the stem used to be. These holes in the inside of your “bowl” help the smoke to pull through the apple more easily.
Next, empty out the pen. Remove the top, ink, and bottom, leaving you with a hollow cylinder. The pen becomes your mouthpiece. Stick one end of the pen into the side of the apple until you reach the toothpick hole. Spin it a couple of times and pull it out again. Remove the apple bits and put the pen back in. Alternately, you can put your mouth directly over the hole you just made, which helps you to avoid potential toxins from the plastic cylinder. Fill the top of your apple with your favorite buds or make another hole opposite the pull hole to smoke a joint from. Knowing how to make an apple pipe can come in handy when the traditional implements are unavailable.
Grind Buds with a Penny and a Pill Bottle
If you’re missing your grinder, you can make a quick one using a clean penny and a pill bottle. Put your bud inside the bottle, drop in the penny, and close the lid. Shake it a few times to “grind” your flower to the consistency you want.
Seal Joints with Honey
Most people seal joints with saliva. While this might make sense if you’re smoking on your own, it may not be ideal if you plan to share. Or, maybe you’re just not that into licking the paper to close it. Instead, use a dab of honey. Along with sealing your joint, it also provides a slower burn.
Use a Frisbee as a Rolling Tray
In lieu of a rolling tray, an upturned frisbee can keep you from losing any precious bud. The rolled-up edges keep anything from spilling onto the floor.
Load Your Bowl with a CD
Speaking of avoiding messes, loading a pipe can also be a source of lost bud. Place a compact disc over your bowl and drop your ground cannabis through the hole in the center. Any stray bits will land on the disc, helping you to avoid loss.
Not all sessions go according to plan. Fortunately, with a little ingenuity, you can make the best of the situation. The next time you’re in a jam, give one of these hacks a try.
