Have you ever heard of a gravity bong? Famous for having names such as bucket bong, geeb, geebie, and jib, it’s a method to satisfy your smoking pinch or consume cannabis. It’s the bong that takes your smoking to the next level and gives you a better high, without wasting your herb. While it’s best to invest in a glass gravity bong for a cleaner and safer smoke, you can also easily make gravity bongs at home with a few items. Here’s your no-nonsense guide to the geeb, including what it is, how to make a geeb, and how to use a gravity bong.

What is a Geeb/Gravity Bong?

Before we go over how to make a geeb, you should know what a gravity bong is. The basic idea is that it uses the power of gravity to collect, hold and concentrate your smoke until you’re ready to take a hit. It still uses water, but not in the same way as the classic glass beaker bongs. Your original recipe bong uses water to cool the smoke before you inhale it, whereas the geeb uses water to create a vacuum to keep all the smoke in the same place. 

How Does a Gravity Bong Work? 

Now that you know what a geeb is, here’s how to use a gravity bong: the smaller bottle should have your fully packed bowl at the top. You place the small bottle inside the larger one and fill the larger container with water so that the smaller one is covered up to its neck. As you light the bowl, pull upward on the smaller bottle slowly and gently. This creates a vacuum between the water and the neck, which fills with smoke.

Once there’s enough smoke in the chamber, you pull out the bowl and push down on the smaller bottle while inhaling. This pushes out all of the smoke right into your lungs.

Why Use a Gravity Bong?

For one, they make sure you get the most bang for your buck. The higher concentration of smoke means you’re wasting very little product compared to other methods, all while getting higher.

Although knowing how to make a geeb is a fun skill to learn, it’s not exactly something you need to, or should learn, due to the quality of the smoke it gives. Sure, grabbing a plastic bottle and making your own is cheap, but it’s also harmful to your health. Burned plastics from homemade gravity bongs emit toxic fumes that mix with the smoke—which you end up inhaling. Made from glass, Gleeb’s glass gravity bongs for sale help you avoid inhaling toxic chemicals from plastic along with your smoke, while still giving you the affordability and convenience you want. 

How to Make A Geeb

What you’ll need:

  • A 2L plastic bottle 
  • Aluminum foil
  • Sharp scissors 
  • A large pot (to fill with water)
  • Metal ratchet piece, socket, geeb piece

Step-by-Step Guide

  • First, you need to cut the bottle into two halves. You only require only the top half of the bottle.
  • For this step, you can use the real downstem and bowl. You just need to drill a hole into the bottle top cap. 
  • Cut aluminum foil into a square, fold it in to make it thicker, and gently press the aluminum foil by putting it on the bottle top.
  • Prick the aluminum foil using a toothpick and create several holes.
  • The next step in how to make a geeb is to fill your pot with fresh water, being careful not to overfill; otherwise, it will spill when you push the bottle down while smoking. Add a pinch of cannabis to your bowl. Hold the DIY smoke apparatus and slowly push it down into the water bowl.
  • Keep the geeb waterlogged and fire the cannabis. Smoke will start to produce and gently lift the bottle up from the water. As you may remember from the explanation of what a geeb is, this process builds up a vacuum and smoke gathers around in the empty bottle.

How to Use a Homemade Gravity Bong

Now that you’ve learned how to make a geeb, you’re ready to use it! Lift the bottle up and pull all the smoke into the down bottle, but lifting should not fully emerge from the liquid. Put your mouth on the bottle, and tenderly remove the downstem and bowl. Gently push the bottle back again into the water, and this will force the smoke up from the bottle and straight into your lungs.

Smoking Tips for Beginners 

  • If you are a first-time user of a gravity bong, be careful because there is a lot of smoke produced.
  • Because of the concentrated dose, you should start by inhaling a little of the smoke. 
  • You can dilute the water with ice if the smoke is too intense to handle. This way, you can enjoy your smoke with a less drastic high.
