To smoke wax with a water bottle, you’ll first need to fashion a DIY dab rig. Gather a small water bottle, a metal pen tube, chewing gum or clay, a knife or sharp object, a lighter, and your wax. Begin by emptying and cleaning the bottle.
Then, use the knife to create a hole slightly smaller than the pen tube near the bottom of the bottle.
Insert the pen tube at an angle to serve as the downstream and seal the connection with gum or clay to make it airtight. Add water, ensuring the downstem is submerged.
Heat the end of the downstem, apply a small amount of wax to the hot surface, and inhale through the mouth of the bottle.
Gathering Your Materials
You’ll need a few basic items to smoke wax with a water bottle.
First, gather a clean plastic water bottle, a small piece of aluminum foil, a toothpick, a lighter, and of course, your wax concentrate. Make sure the water bottle is empty and dry before you begin.
The aluminum foil will be used to create a small bowl on top of the water bottle, so tear off a piece large enough to cover the mouth of the bottle.
The toothpick will come in handy for poking small holes in the aluminum foil to let the smoke through.
Once you have all these items ready, you’re all set to move on to the next steps in smoking wax with a water bottle.
Step 1: Preparing the Water Bottle
To prepare the water bottle, gather the clean plastic water bottle and the piece of aluminum foil you’ve obtained.
Follow these steps to ensure a smooth preparation:
- Clean the Bottle: Rinse the plastic water bottle with warm, soapy water and let it dry completely to ensure there are no residual impurities.
- Craft the Bowl: Shape the aluminum foil into a small bowl that will fit on the mouth of the water bottle. Make sure it’s sturdy enough to hold the wax without collapsing.
- Poke Holes: Use a toothpick or a small needle to carefully poke several tiny holes in the bottom of the aluminum foil bowl to allow for airflow.
- Secure the Bowl: Gently twist the foil bowl onto the mouth of the water bottle, ensuring a snug and airtight fit to prevent any wax from falling through.
With these steps, you’ll be ready to move on to the next stage of smoking wax with a water bottle.
Step 2: Assembling the DIY Wax Rig
Now, assemble the DIY wax rig by placing the aluminum foil bowl on the mouth of the water bottle. Ensure the bowl is securely attached so that it doesn’t fall into the bottle while smoking. If needed, use tape to hold it in place.
Next, carefully poke small holes in the foil to allow air to flow through. These holes will help regulate the airflow and ensure a smooth smoking experience.
Once the bowl is in place and the holes are made, you’re ready to move on to heating and smoking the wax. This step is crucial for properly enjoying your wax, so let’s walk through the process together.
Step 3: Heating and Smoking the Wax
First, hold the flame under the foil bowl while inhaling gently to vaporize the wax and create smoke. Remember, it’s important to use caution when heating the wax to avoid burning it.
Here’s how to heat and smoke the wax effectively:
- Control the Flame: Adjust the distance between the flame and the foil to control the temperature. You want to heat the wax enough to vaporize it without burning it.
- Slow and Steady: Inhale slowly and steadily to draw the vapor into the water bottle. This allows for a smoother smoking experience.
- Monitor the Smoke: Watch the smoke as you inhale. You want to see a steady stream of smoke, indicating that the wax is vaporizing properly.
- Take It Easy: Don’t rush the process. Take your time to enjoy the experience and ensure that you’re inhaling the vapor effectively.
Safety Tips and Precautions
As you handle the water bottle and wax, ensure that you are mindful of safety tips and precautions to avoid any potential risks. Here are some essential safety tips and precautions to keep in mind when smoking wax with a water bottle:
|Use a proper heat source||Avoid using open flames|
|Ensure good ventilation||Never smoke in enclosed spaces|
|Use a stable surface||Prevent accidental spills|
Now that you’ve gathered your materials, prepared your water bottle, and assembled your DIY wax rig, it’s time to heat and smoke the wax.
Remember to take it slow and be cautious with the heat. Safety is key when it comes to smoking wax, so always have a plan in place and be aware of your surroundings.
Now, let’s see how your homemade wax rig turns out!
