We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Marijuana smokers are some of the most creative people on the planet when it comes to devising ways to get their fix.

Certainly not the tobacco smokers who’ve stuck stoically to the cigarette and the pipe since…well, forever. How boring. So, if you’re looking for a novel way to get your ganja on, why not try the gravity bong. Sure you’ve smoked a joint, toked on a bong, and took a drag from a blunt, but have you ever let gravity do most of the work? Of course not.

- A bucket
- A drill
- A bud bowl
- A lighter
- Your favorite ganja
