Replaceable glass or quartz screens aren’t as common as the aforementioned options, with most high-quality glass bongs incorporating borosilicate or quartz screens right into their design. These often feature decoratively placed holes instead of the ultra-fine mesh of brass or steel. There is really no “best” type of screen—what’s most important is that it fits snugly into your bowl.
You know your screen fits if it doesn't pop out after pressing it down into your bowl. The rest, whether you prefer steel, brass, or glass screens, is up to you. Since this article is about making a homemade bong, chances are you don’t have any actual pipe screens around. In this case, you can make some DIY pipe screens for single-time use. Here are your options: A tried and true method is to take a piece of aluminium foil and poke some holes into it with a toothpick. Form the foil into a suitable-sized screen, and place it into the bowl just like you would an ordinary screen. No worries, the aluminium foil won’t melt when you’re smoking.
That said, such a DIY screen may only last one or two sessions before losing its integrity. You can also make a screen from a paperclip or a similar piece of stiff wire. Bend the wire into a spiral and position it snugly in the bowl. This can work as a halfway-decent screen that keeps larger chunks of ash and weed in your pipe. If you’re really in a pinch, you can pack your bowl so you don’t need a screen at all. Pack your bowl with the larger weed bits at the bottom—large enough to cover the hole and not immediately get sucked in. Layer the finer particles of weed on top to increase surface area for an ideal smoke. No guarantees with this method, but when all else fails, you might as well optimise the experience as best you can.

Fortunately, you can make your own bong at home using some cheap, basic supplies! With the right tools and a little bit of time on your hands, you'll have a fully functioning bong in no time. To make a bong, start by filling up a plastic bottle 1/4 of the way with water. Then, poke a hole near the top of the bottle to make a carb. Poke a second hole just above the waterline and press a downstem through it so the end inside of the bottle is submerged. If you don't have a downstem, you can make one by emptying out a highlighter and covering the end of the tube with foil. To use your bong, light the bowl and inhale through the mouthpiece. When the bottle is full of smoke, release the carb and breathe in. A cross between DJ Short's Blueberry (indica) and Santa Cruz Haze (sativa), Blue Dream quickly rose to become a staple in the West Coast grower and dispensary communities. With 50-100% stronger yields than most other strains, Blue Dream produces huge dense buds packed heavily with trichomes, and covered with a fine coat of light orange hairs. Hailing from Santa Cruz, California Blue Dream originated as a medicinal clone.

With a healthy balance of full-body relaxation and mental stimulation, Blue Dream is enjoyed by new comers and veterans alike. While Blue Dream traits tend to lean toward its sativa ancestry, some phenotype have more indica like expressions. I would recommend this as a starter strain along with dream queen but blue dream will yield more. only bad thing I could say is it gets boring… Blue Dream (Humboldt Seed Organisation) :: StrainReview :: Outdoor. Plant-Profile about Blue Dream (by Humboldt Seed Organisation) This Plant-Profile was generated by 3 single profiles, particular thanks goes to: Asher, Bluefox and Mastercard. Information about the growth of the plants: Harvest, Yield, Taste, Aroma, strength and effectiveness. Blue Dream (Humboldt Seed Organisation) (Outdoor) is all together extremely good and very recommendable (On average 9 Points onto a scale between 0 and 10 !) Additional Information. Let me start out by saying I have been growing outdoors for more than ten years, and never have I seen such vigorous growth from any plant when started indoors, nor such large buds on any other outdoor plant I have seen, either mine or my friend’s. And I ordered seeds that were supposed to be “big bud” on a few occasions. I ordered just two seeds, both were a different phenotype.
The first, the one I kept as a clone, had the thickest, biggest second nodal leaves I have ever seen. I kept it under the lamps for two months and topped it constantly, then placed it outdoor on 11. For the first month, the growth was nice, I was extremely happy with the progress.
