So now that I’ve played around with my homemade bong for awhile, I’ve already grown tired of getting way too high and coughing on smoke and thought about how I could combine the benefits of a bong (cooler smoke and easier on the throat and lungs) with the benefits of a vaporizer (no smoke, just vapor…and even easier on the throat and lungs).
The result was this magic little hose, which reminds me so much of the audio adapters and electronic cables I’ve been making for decades that I call it a Vaporizer / Bong Interface Adapter (please ignore dirty stovetop):
As you can see, there’s not much to it. On one end is the stem from my MFLB vaporizer, and on the other, this handy bong adapter from VapeWorld that’s even on sale right now. In the middle, 12 inches of 3/16″ID tubing, yet another 19 cent bargain from Ace Hardware. Feel free to get silicone tubing if you can, it’s even purer/safer/feels cooler. The 3/16″ size fits very snugly, so be gentle when putting it on; I thought 1/4″ might be a mite too big.
If you use an Arizer Extreme Q or Silver Surfer, Da Buddha, or any other whip vape, with luck you can simply put the end of your whip over the end of the VapeWorld adapter and you’re done. There’s not much vapor produced by the MFLB so a shorter hose is easier to work with.
How well does it work? It’s bloody insane. When taking small, slow inhales like I normally do with the MFLB, I literally can’t even feel the vapor going into my throat or lungs. That’s why the first time I tried this I got way too high…I thought maybe it wasn’t working or something and I kept going back for more! If you inhale “massive bong hit style”, then yes you will cough, but nowhere nearly as badly as with smoke.
As with any bong, you tend to take more than usual and probably lots more than necessary. If you want to microdose, I recommend sticking with the straight MFLB.
This is the big deal: Felicity can even use this rig without coughing up a storm (she still coughs, but very little). She’s never been able to smoke or even use a vaporizer before due to long-term lung damage.
Here it is in action:
