Different ways to smoke weed without papers

There is a saying that stoners have a great engineering sense. Because when there is nothing to smoke like rolling papers, pipes or bongs, we can invent the most creative gadgets to smoke weed. As smokers, we all have been through that situation. You want to enjoy some fine cannabis, but you just ran out of rolling papers, and it's too late, every smoke shop is closed. Don't worry, we'll tell you some very efficient ways to smoke weed without rolling papers. 


Alternatives to rolling papers:

It's late at night, and you're out of papers. But you really want to smoke a joint, what a situation. Don't worry there are a lot of rolling papers alternatives, as well as lots of ways to roll a joint without rolling papers. 


Bible papers

Bible papers from my experience are the closest thing to regular rolling papers. The only disadvantage is that a Bible paper is really thin and may burn faster than traditional rolling papers. Bible paper is known as "onion skin paper", and is very thin and translucent. 

I'll tell you how I have rolled joints with a Bible. I consider other people's personal experiences the best way to learn, because you know, it retains its legitimacy. So, although your package of rolling papers is empty, you should keep it. Always keep one, for emergency situations. 

  • Open your empty pack of rolling papers and cut it by half, remove and keep the half used to open and close the package
  • Keep this part, and put it on the Bible
  • With a pen or pencil mark the outline of the package, twice, to draw the exact silhouette of a rolling paper in the Bible
  • Once you have traced the outline, you will have a perfect rectangle draw, just cut it with scissors or a cutter
  • This piece of Bible can perfectly be used as a rolling paper.
  • Roll and you're ready to smoke


Gum Wrapper

A gum wrapper is not the best substitute for rolling papers, however as a last choice might save your day. First, make sure that the wrapper is not made of aluminum. If not, proceed with the smoking process. Gum wrappers already have a nice rectangular shape, just place your weed on it, roll and enjoy your cannabis.


Cigarette paper

They sell them all the time, and you can find them in most stores. Cigarettes are a popular method of smoking tobacco.  So, if you don't have rolling papers this option might work. You just need to empty the tobacco. My recommendation is to grab the cigarette with your index, thumb and middle finger and apply pressure as you empty the tobacco by twisting your fingers and the cigarette. If you decide to mix your weed with tobacco, leave some, this mixture is a classic in some parts of Europe and it helps to save weed. It is a thrifty technique. Even though smoking tobacco is not very recommended it gives the joint a nice taste. So an empty cigarette might be an alternative to rolling papers. 

Some people prefer to cut the cigarette by half, empty the tobacco and roll with the paper. However, I have tried this and the remaining paper is just too small. It is kind of hard to close it, I mean, you can learn how to roll with tiny papers, but for me it is pointless. The advantage is that cigarette paper burns slowly and evenly.


Corn husk

Another creative way to smoke cannabis is with corn husk. Smoke weed without papers embraces a great natural alternative; it is also an eco-friendly way to consume marijuana.

  • Start by separating the inner layer of the husk. It is much thinner, smoother and easier to twist than the outer layers, along with carrying a tastier flavor. 
  • Dry out the husk inner layer by leaving it in the sun for a whole day. You can also put in on the oven for about 10 seconds 
  • Once the husk is dried you can make the cuts to make a rolling paper shape. 
  • When you are ready to smoke, hit the husk with a small amount of water, and let it sit for a couple of minutes. This will allow the husk to stick together when the joint is rolled.
  • If the joint is too loose, you can tear a long strip from another husk to use it to tie off the end of the joint.

If you're looking for a natural, eco-friendly alternative this is one of the best ways to smoke weed. 


Rose blunt

If you're looking to smoke something exotic this is for you. No smoking paper can be compared to this technique. A rose blunt might be ideal for a romantic encounter, I mean, roses are the symbol of romanticism, passion and deep feeling. So, if you want to smoke marijuana with your special person this might be ideal. 

  • First, gently moisten a rose petal to make it pliable.
  • Place the cannabis on top of the moistened petal
  • Roll the petal around the cannabis, making sure to truck the edges of the petal in so the cannabis is fully enclosed. 
  • Continue rolling additional petals around the first one, making sure to overlap the edges slightly, until the cannabis is fully enclosed in a bundle of petals.
  • Shape the bundle of petals into a rose by gently pressing down on the top and bottom of the spiral.
  • Light the blunt and enjoy.


Alternative devices for smoking weed: 

If you don't have any of the previous materials and you want to get high without having to go to the store, this alternative for pipes will be a great help. With basic household items you will be able to find new ways to get high. 


Apple pipe

An apple pipe is one of the best homemade smoking devices. This is a great alternative, it's quick and healthy, because you can take some bites from the apple pipe if you are hungry. This is a guide of how to make a quick homemade device to smoke cannabis with only an apple and a pen or pencil. 

  • First poke a hole on the top of the apple, where its branch comes out. The depth of the hole should reach approximately half the apple. The cut should be funnel-shaped because there, in the upper part is where we will place the herb.

  • Then poke another hole on the side of the apple. You must make a small hole, it must reach the first hole, that is where you are going to put your mouth to inhale the smoke.

As we can notice this is a much simpler homemade device for smoking cannabis. You don't need more than two cuts to the apple, it's very easy to make a basic pipe from an apple. Just make sure you dry the bowl where you are placing the herb and you're ready to smoke. You can also make an apple bong, it’s a little bit more complicated but totally worth it. 


Homemade gravity bong

A gravity bong is a type of homemade smoking device that uses air pressure and gravity to smoke from a bowl of burning cannabis into a container filled with water. Here is how to make a gravity bong at home

  • Find a plastic bottle that has a lid and a bowl that fits over the top. A two-liter bottle will work just fine. 
  • Cut the bottom of the bottle, leaving about 4-5 inches of plastic
  • Drill or melt a small hole in the cap of the bottle. This will be the bowl of your bong. 

How to use your new bong:

  • Fill a large bucket or basin with water. Place the cut-off bottom of the water bottle into the water, making sure that the top of the bottle is above the waterline. 
  • Load the bowl with cannabis and light it. 
  • Slowly raise the bottle out of the water, which will create a vacuum and cause the smoke to be drawn into the bottle. 
  • Once the bottle is full of smoke, remove the bowl and place your mouth over the top of the bottle.
  • Push the bottle down into the water, which will force the smoke into your lungs.

Now you know how to roll without rolling papers and to make your homemade devices to smoke weed. There are also other ways like a hookah pipe or vaping, however, not everybody has a hookah pipe or a vape. The interesting thing is that we can make pipes, joints and bongs from scratch and share the tip with our friends.
