We recommend using glass pipes because they’re cool to the touch, and they don’t leave you with a bad metal or wooden taste in your mouth. But if you’ve lost or forgotten your pipe and you’re looking to medicate, opt for a homemade organic pipe. Many kinds of fruits and vegetables work, but some are better than others.
The apple pipe is the classic, easy-to-make DIY pipe. Watch this video tutorial to avoid butchering a good piece of fruit, or try this “new and improved” method that allows you to save some for snacking.
Carrots are tougher to puncture than apples, so you’re going to need a small knife or screwdriver for this one. Watch this video tutorial, and be careful not to accidentally cut yourself.

Remember to always discard these after use. Smoking out of rotten fruit isn’t a good idea.
