The Best Ways To Smoke Weed Without Rolling Papers
Many people like to smoke joints. Many others don’t. Thankfully, there are numerous ways that you can get high without rolling papers. Not only can you use traditional methods like pipes or bongs, but you can also get creative and make your own smoking devices out of household items.
Joints have long been an iconic part of marijuana culture. Many people love them for their simplicity, their convenience, and their flavour. However, situations may arise where smoking papers are not available. Moreover, some people don’t like to smoke joints because of the prospect of smoking paper. Others simply prefer to consume marijuana via other methods that may be more enjoyable or convenient for them. Whatever the reason, there is a wide range of alternative methods you can use to get high. Here is a list of some of the most well-known alternatives to rolling papers.
Vaporizers have become one of the most common ways to consume marijuana products. Dry herbs, oils, waxes, distillates, and other concentrates like shatter or budder can all be converted into vapour and inhaled.
Vaporizers are not only flexible in their usage, but are also a significantly healthier alternative to smoking. This is because marijuana vapour contains far fewer toxins and carcinogens than marijuana smoke. Vaporizers were first invented as a healthier method of consuming tobacco, but have evolved into one of the safest, most convenient, and most enjoyable ways to consume marijuana.
Vaporizers function best at temperatures ranging from 140–205°C (285–400°F). Temperatures outside of this range risk leaving behind cannabinoids or burning them into smoke. Be sure to grind your weed before vaping to make sure it gets completely and evenly vaporised.
Vaporizers come in many varieties. Whether you are looking to vape at home or on-the-go, there are a wide range of options and price points to choose from. Some types of vaporizers, like vape pens, for example, have become very popular, and consequently very expensive.
Lastly, not all vaporizers are built to last. Disposable vape pens or cartridges are now sold in dispensaries all across North America. These vaporizers utilise simple, small, and cheap batteries instead of complex heating units. They are typically sold as a package with some type of concentrate like oil or THC distillate. Once the attached concentrate is all vaped up, the pen is then expected to be tossed out.
Pipes come in all shapes and sizes. They can also be made from any number of materials including glass, metal, wood, and clay. Different materials produce slightly different-tasting smoke, so many people have preferences when it comes to pipes. Pipes are very convenient because they are typically very easy to carry and use.
In order for materials to burn evenly in a pipe, they must be finely ground up beforehand. If the pipe has a carb hole on the side, make sure to cover it while lighting your herb and release it when inhaling.
If you have the right materials, pipes can even be made at home if necessary. Read on to find out how you can make pipes out of items like apples, corn husks, and water bottles.
Many people prefer smoking weed out of bongs because they can get you very high, very quickly. Not only do bongs get you way higher than joints, but they are much more convenient since they save you the time of having to roll a joint. The only real negative with bongs is that they require water in order to function properly. This can be a problem if water is not readily available, or if water spills out of the bong.
Bongs can be made out of all kinds of materials including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, and even certain kinds of wood like bamboo. They can also come in many different designs including carburetor bongs, percolator bongs, multi-chambered bongs, straight-tube bongs, beaker-shaped bongs, and gravity bongs.
Gravity bongs are named for the technique they use to produce smoke. They are sometimes also known as water bongs, although they are essentially the same thing. Gravity bongs can be made out of a wide range of accessible materials like watermelons, pumpkins, milk jugs, and paint buckets. Essentially, to make a water bong, you will need a container that can hold water, and a plastic bottle that can hold smoke.
To make and use a gravity bong, follow these steps:
- Cut the plastic bottle in half.
- Cover the mouth hole with aluminium foil. Mould it into the shape of a bowl.
- Poke holes in the foil for airflow.
- Fill the container up with water.
- Place the bottle in the container with the mouthpiece above the waterline.
- Place weed on the foil and light it.
- Pull the bottle upwards while lighting to fill it with smoke.
- Push the bottle downwards into the water as you inhale so as to force the smoke upwards into your lungs.
Bubblers are like a mix between a pipe and a bong. In a sense, they are the best of both worlds. Small enough to be conveniently handled like a pipe, but built to get you as high as a bong. Bubblers are typically made of glass and have a round chamber either on the bottom or on the side. The chamber is filled with water, and the weed goes in the bowl. If you are looking to try something different, or if you are looking for a more portable version of your bong, check out a bubbler.
ALTERNATIVE ROLLING OPTIONS
If you find yourself without rolling papers, don’t forget that other paper-based materials can work as substitutes. Items such as cigarette papers, gum wrappers, and even the Yellow Pages can be used as a substitute for regular rolling papers. The paper used in phone books is very thin and very similar to regular rolling papers. The thinness of the paper will also help to easily bind it shut with saliva, just like you would with regular papers. Although cigarette papers are typically thicker, gum wrappers are similarly very thin and brittle.
When it comes to using alternative papers, just be sure to handle them carefully to avoid tears. Additionally, be careful when inserting filters as it is possible to accidentally tear the paper with them.
The term hookah is derived from the Urdu word “huqqa”, meaning “pipe”. These types of smoking devices originated on the Indian subcontinent and quickly spread across the Ottoman empire. As they became a wildly popular method of smoking tobacco, these kinds of tools spread into Europe and Asia. Smoking marijuana out of a hookah pipe may seem somewhat complicated, but it is not.
To do so, you will need a hookah pipe, coals, aluminium foil, tongs, water, and, if desired, shisha to mix with. If you decide to mix your weed with shisha or tobacco, place it on the bottom, with the cannabis on top. This will provide some moisture for the weed so that it does not dry out during the smoking process.
The hookah method is also very effective with hashish. Just remember to handle the coals with care and to not tug on the mouthpiece so the pipe does not fall over.
Dab rigs allow you to consume extremely potent cannabis extracts like shatter, honeycomb, and budder. In essence, dab rigs use a flash vaporisation method to process concentrates. In order to achieve this, you have to use a blowtorch instead of a lighter. The advantage to using dab rigs is, of course, how high they can get you. Because the extracts that dab rigs process are extremely potent, they arguably get you higher than any other method on this page.
Many people believe that dabbing is a healthier method of consuming marijuana than smoking, as it usually does not involve combustion. This makes the resulting vapour more “pure” than regular cannabis smoke.
Apple pipes are a fun and convenient way to smoke cannabis. Apples are one of the most popular and accessible fruits in the world, and can be very easily converted into smoking devices. All you need to make an apple pipe is an apple, a pen, and maybe some aluminium foil.
Before you begin, make sure to choose a fresh apple that will not fall apart. You will be poking holes into it, so it must hold up. Additionally, pen substitutes like pen caps, pencils, or strong straws can be used, but are not recommended.
To make and use an apple pipe, follow these steps:
- Jam the pen into the apple to create a tunnel from the top (stem) to the middle/bottom of the apple.
- Use the pen to create another tunnel into the side of the apple. This tunnel should connect to the middle one, providing unrestricted airflow.
- Line the natural mould of the apple where the stem came out with aluminium foil to act as a bowl.
- Poke holes in the aluminium foil to allow for airflow.
- Place your weed on top of the aluminium foil, light, and pull through the side hole.
- Some people prefer to carve a third tunnel on the other side of the apple to function as a carb. This is possible, but not at all necessary.
Corn husks have become very popular among health-conscious smokers. In Jamaica and California, corn husks are regularly used as alternatives to rolling papers or other devices. Since husks are all-natural, this is considered to be one of the healthiest methods of smoking cannabis.
After being dried, corn husks are simple to roll up. Additionally, they are fibrous, meaning they can be tightly secured to hold marijuana inside and will smoke slowly like papers. If you’re looking for a fun, healthy, and creative way to smoke marijuana, give dried corn husks a try.
The hot knife method is one of the oldest known ways of smoking cannabis or hashish. All you need are one or two knives and a heating element. If using a stove, turn it on medium heat and place the steel knives over the burner. This will allow them to heat up and make the weed stick to them. When the knives are hot enough, place a piece of bud on one, and squeeze it with the other. Inhale the marijuana as it begins to smoke.
When handling hot knives, be careful not to burn yourself on their handles. When they touch marijuana, it will immediately begin to produce smoke, so be ready to inhale.
Some minor modifications can be made to the method if preferred. Some people prefer to cut a plastic bottle in half and use that as a suction tool. A cardboard paper towel roll can also be used. Additionally, some people choose to omit the knives altogether and place their marijuana directly onto the heating element using a sheet of foil. This method works just as well, but provides equally less control over the direction of the smoke (not to mention the risk of burning your face), making the use of a cardboard roll or cut-up plastic bottle a must.
Plastic lungs are not just easy to make, but will also get you extremely high. Lungs mimic the same airflow functionality as bongs. In order to make a plastic lung, you will need a plastic container like a 2l bottle, scissors, aluminium foil, tape, and a plastic bag. 2l bottles tend to work very well, however, you can also use a 4l container if you wish.
To make and use a lung, follow these steps:
- Cut the plastic container in half.
- Use the tape to attach the plastic bag to the bottom of the container, sealing it.
- Place aluminium foil on the mouthpiece of the container. Mould into a bowl shape.
- Poke holes in the foil.
- Place marijuana on top of the foil.
- Pull on the bag as you light the weed, creating suction.
- When the bag is full, lift off the foil and inhale.
When making a lung, the capacity of the container will depend on the size of the bag used. As such, the larger the bag, the more smoke that the lung will hold, and the higher you will get.
Smoking marijuana from a soda can is just about as juvenile as it gets. A “do-it-yourself” favourite among new smokers, soda cans can easily be converted into smoking devices. Simply bend the can in half, poke some holes into the new crease, and poke a carb hole in the side. Put your weed inside the crease, light it, and inhale through the mouthpiece.
While soda cans work as smoking devices, many people worry about possible negative health effects. The aluminium that the can is made of may not be as safe to smoke from as aluminium foil. Additionally, the ink on the can may release chemicals when heated. As such, even though the method works, it should be used sparingly.
Conversely, some people actually prefer smoking out of a soda can. Proponents claim that your high can be enhanced by the residual sugar and caffeine molecules in the can. Unsurprisingly, there is no research to confirm these claims.
Similarly to cans and 2l containers, plastic water bottles can be retrofitted into smoking tools. Just poke a hole in the side of the bottle, place some aluminium foil on the mouth piece (in the shape of a bowl), poke some holes in the foil, and voila! You have yourself a water bottle pipe. Some prefer to make the hole in the bottom of the bottle, but really anywhere works. Water bottle pipes can be frustrating to use as they require being held at a somewhat weird angle during use. As such, be careful not to accidentally knock your weed out of the bowl when lighting up.
Rose blunts are not commonly talked about when it comes to alternative smoking methods. Yet, many people claim that they are just as effective as any method of consuming cannabis. In order to prepare a rose blunt, you will need just 3 rose petals and a working oven.
To prepare the blunt, preheat the oven to broil and set aside 3 rose petals. When the oven is hot enough, place them on a pan inside the oven for about 10 seconds. Take the pan out, lick the rose petals, and stick them together to make a blunt wrap. Place them back in the oven for another 10 seconds. Remember to not let them get too dry or crispy as that could cause problems when rolling. Simply pull them out of the oven, let them cool down for a moment, and roll yourself a rose blunt.
There are lots of ways to get high without rolling papers. Check out this list of alternative methods ranging from glass bongs to DIY apple pipes.

The 10 Most Fun Ways To Smoke Weed
Published: February 5th, 2019
Categories: Fun Stuff
Lord knows, there appear to be thousands of ways to enjoy our beloved herb. Hearkening back all the way to the ancient hash-eaters and pipe smokers, today’s next-gen technology allows cannabis to be vaporised, dabbed, and otherwise consumed in myriad ways. And while each individual has their own preferences for smoking, the following 10 selections represent some of the most fun and occasionally novel ways to get super-blazed.
Experiment at your own risk.
This seems like an obvious one, but bongs are one of the most fun ways to smoke weed. Bongs are great because they can get you really high, really fast. Moreover, bongs come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and designs. They all get you high, but the bigger they are, the more smoke they hold, and the higher you can get off them. Some commercially sold bongs can reach as high as a couple metres and pack a massive punch.
Added features like percolators and ice catchers can make the bong-smoking experience even better. These kinds of features make smoke easier to inhale by cooling it down and making it less irritating on your throat and lungs. By doing this, they allow more smoke to be tolerated and inhaled, thus getting you even higher.
Smaller bongs are pretty cool too. Bottle-sized bongs are easy to carry and make for a pleasant outdoor smoking experience. What better way to enjoy your green than in the great green outdoors?
Gas masks are one of the most notorious ways to get high. These things will light you up like a Christmas tree and leave you gasping for air. The airtight material means that smoke does not escape. Instead, it builds around your face, forcing you to breathe it in and push it out through the exit chamber. It sounds like a rough ride, but it’s actually a pretty fun experience that can get you just as high as anything else.
Because smoke does not escape the mask, it is actually one of the most efficient ways to inhale cannabis. You can rest assured that, unless you remove the mask, all that smoke will be put to good use. The only real downside is how irritating the smoke can be for your nose, throat, and skin.
Gas masks make for a fun party trick, especially because they are so rare. They are an instant attention grabber and conversation starter. People love to watch others cough their lungs up from these things, and may even dare to have a go themselves.
Blunts are delicious. They enhance the smoking experience by adding flavour to the smoke. Wraps come in all flavours and sizes, making them easily customisable to your preferences.
Fruit-flavoured wraps are especially popular because of how well their flavours mix with the natural taste of marijuana. Try rolling them with fruit-flavoured strains to maximise the effect. Pineapple Express Auto, Ultra Lemon Haze, and Strawberry Sour Diesel are some of the most effective strains for optimising flavour. Some people also prefer naturally flavoured tobacco wraps. These blunts not only taste great, but provide a little nicotine kick to enhance your high.
When compared to joints, blunts taste better, last longer, and give bigger hits. They also don’t run into common joint problems like going out quickly or burning unevenly. A good blunt wrap will significantly extend the length of your smoke session. This is especially useful if you are smoking with friends since it will prevent you from having to roll multiple joints.
The only real downside with blunts is that they can be difficult to roll sometimes, especially if the wraps are dried out. Re-humidifying them is an option, but it can take a long time. When rolling dry, fragile wraps, be extra careful not to tear them. If tears do occur, they can always be fixed with a small piece of rolling paper and saliva to seal them.
Bag vaporizers are preferred by many vapers for the large amount of vapour they can hold at any one time. When compared to regular vaporizers, bag vapes are capable of getting you much higher with way less work. Simply attach the bag, place your bud in the chamber, press a button, and watch it fill up. They are typically easier to clean and maintain than other vapes since they have fewer parts like mouthpieces or whips.
Many of the most popular bag vapes, including the Volcano, have extra-large bags that can be purchased and attached. Some units even allow you to construct your own bags and attach them. These bags can reach sizes of up to three metres, and theoretically even higher.
Bag vapes are like the bongs of vaporizers. The large volume of their bags means that you can take much larger hits and get much higher than you would with a regular vape. Bag vapes are also an excellent choice for vaping with friends. The bags can be easily passed around and refilled when necessary.
The main downside with bag vapes is that they are not portable. They will require an even, stable surface to operate and will need to be plugged into an outlet.
Plastic lungs are not only easy to make, but will also get you very high, very quickly. Lungs are essentially plastic bottles cut in half, with bags attached to their bottom half, and with aluminum foil covering their mouthpiece. The aluminum foil acts as a bowl and the bag acts as a container. Holes are poked into the foil bowl, and the bag is pulled as the bud is lit, creating downward suction and filling the container with smoke.
Lungs are super fun to use because they are capable of holding a lot of smoke. They can deliver bong-sized hits within seconds. They are also very easily customisable to suit personal preferences. Instead of a 2l bottle, some people prefer using 4l milk jugs to maximise container volume. They can be further expanded by using a larger plastic bag.
Be careful to pace yourself when using a lung. Unlike a bong, there is no mechanism to cool the smoke and make it easier to inhale. As such, coughing and throat irritation are common.
Mixing weed with tobacco or shisha inside of a hookah is a really pleasant and fun way to smoke cannabis. Hookahs are smoking devices that originated on the Indian subcontinent and spread throughout Europe as the Ottoman Empire expanded. Hookahs are typically used to smoke tobacco products, however, marijuana can be mixed in to enhance the experience.
When mixing weed and shisha, place the shisha on the bottom of the bowl and layer the bud on top of it. This will provide some moisture for the bud so it does not dry out while smoking it. The hookah method is even more effective with hashish than with ground bud. When combined with the effects of the shisha, marijuana will produce a sleepy, couch-locking high.
This method will not get you high very quickly as it takes a while to burn through the shisha and the bud. However, it is great for smoking with friends or while watching TV. Just be sure not to burn yourself on the coals and not to tug too hard on the whip as it could bring down the whole device.
Gravity bongs, also known as water bongs, get their name from the fact that they use water and gravity to produce smoke. They are usually made from plastic bottles and buckets, but can also be made from a wide range of other materials such as pumpkins, watermelons, and milk jugs. Essentially, you will need a bottle to hold smoke, a container to hold water, and some tin foil to act as a bowl.
A gravity bong works by filling a container with water and placing the loaded bottle inside it. The bud is then lit as the bottle is pulled out of the water, filling it with smoke. Gravity bongs are a fun and creative way to smoke weed. Depending on the size of the bottle being used, they can pack a big punch and get you really high. Just be careful not to spill any water or knock the bucket over!
An “L” is a really long joint that gets its name from the layout of the rolling papers, which form a big L-shape. To roll an L, place both papers glue-side up on a flat surface and attach the second paper to the bottom part of the first at a 90° angle. If you would like to smoke less paper, or roll a slightly smaller joint, use scissors to cut the bottom paper diagonally at the halfway point.
L joints are great because they can hold so much more weed than a regular joint. The second rolling paper allows you to pack in extra bud at the end of the joint, making for a really fat tip. These joints are fun to smoke with friends or to bring to parties. They can take a really long time to finish, providing enough time for conversation and socialising. These king-sized joints are a good way to change up your smoking routine.
A Hawaiian hotbox is like a mix between a sauna and a hotbox. It requires a bathroom with a shower and a towel. The hot water in the shower is turned on and left to run for a few minutes until steam fills the room. A towel should be placed under the door so as to prevent steam and smoke from escaping. At that point, you can light up and enjoy the atmosphere.
Hawaiian hotboxes are a really fun way to smoke with friends. The hazy atmosphere is relaxing in a strangely intense way, almost as if you were in the clouds. The mix of smoke and steam hangs in the air, allowing you to breathe it all in throughout the session. The added humidity definitely enhances your high, making it feel heavier and more intense. However, after you exit the hotbox, you can expect the high to come down to normal levels.
An added bonus is that bathroom fans can quickly make the smoke dissipate. As such, this method of smoking leaves little smell behind and is easy to clean up.
Hot knives are a really cool way to ruin your silverware while getting high. They are a fun party trick and often turn into a communal event with friends or roommates. The hot knife method is one of the oldest known ways of smoking weed, largely due to its simplicity. Knives are left on a stove element to heat up and are then used to pick up and press a small piece of bud, making it smoke.
When handling the knives, be careful not to burn yourself on the handles as they heat up. When hot knives touch marijuana, smoke is immediately produced. As such, you should be ready to inhale right away.
Some minor modifications can be made to the hot knife method if preferred. Cutting a plastic bottle in half and using it as a suction tool can help ensure that no smoke is wasted. Some people prefer to omit the knives and bottle altogether and simply place their bud on the heating element, but this is more dangerous and somewhat wasteful since you have even less control over the direction of the smoke.
10 fun, adventurous, and creative ways to smoke weed. These smoking methods are great for enjoying weed with friends or entertaining at parties.
