No Pipe? No Problem! How to Smoke Medical Marijuana Out of an Apple

Few things are more frustrating than wanting pain relief and not being able to get it. This post is for those Missouri medical marijuana cardholders who may have misplaced their pipe and simply don’t have any rolling papers handy. Bookmark this page, just in case you ever find yourself in need of a quick, easy, and fun way to consume your cannabis.

There Are Many Ways to Smoke Medical Marijuana

When it comes to creativity, cannabis users know how to think outside the box. Over the years, marijuana enthusiasts have come up with countless ways to smoke cannabis. Here are just a few:

  • Joints - marijuana that has been rolled into a cigarette, with or without a filter

  • Blunts - these are like a joint, but instead of rolling papers, they use the wrapping from a cigar. The tobacco is removed from a cigar, replaced by marijuana, and re-rolled

  • Pipe - from traditional pipes to an array of innovations, there are more creative pipe options than you can imagine.

  • One Hitter - These are small pipes that often look like a cigarette. They are designed to discreetly allow you to take a single hit of marijuana.

  • Bongs - water pipes with a cylinder that filter cannabis through liquid for a less-harsh smoking experience and a bigger buzz. If you are curious about these, check out our Bongs for Beginners guide.

  • Vaping - Technically, this option isn’t actually smoking. It’s called vaping, because you are inhaling vapor instead of smoke. If you have traditionally consumed cannabis by smoking, but are looking for an alternative method, vaping is an option you may want to consider.

  • Apples - nature’s pipe. That’s right. This delicious fruit can do more than provide nutrition - it can provide relief. With a little know-how, you can turn the most-American of fruits into a vessel of healing.

Why Smoke Marijuana Out of an Apple?

Smoking cannabis out of an apple seems like an idea that only someone who has already been enjoying marijuana could come up with. The truth is, there doesn’t seem to be any historical documentation on who first innovated this time honored tradition. All we know is that it’s proven to be a great way to enjoy marijuana.

The main reason for smoking out of an apple is usually if you don’t have any other options. Perhaps you have marijuana on-hand, but no way to smoke it. You have a lighter, but no pipe, bong, or rolling papers, and you want relief now. So, you glance at the fruit bowl on your kitchen counter and realize you DO have a way to enjoy your marijuana. You have an apple!

There are some other reasons you might want to smoke out of an apple. Apples are inexpensive, and when you smoke with an apple, you won’t lose THC resin in the way you might with a traditional pipe. That means you get a more powerful smoking experience.

Plus, when you’re done with your apple, you can just toss it out. Apples are naturally biodegradable, and you never have to worry about cleaning them, like you do with other cannabis smoking products. You might be tempted to eat the apple once you are finished, but we don’t recommend that.

Here’s How to Turn an Apple Into a Pipe:

Step 1 - Gather your supplies.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Medical marijuana

  • An apple

  • A poking implement (This can be whatever you have lying around - a toothpick, knife, screwdriver, or even the non-ink part of a ballpoint pen.)

  • A lighter

Step 2 - Remove the Apple’s Stem

Just twist off the stem to reveal nature’s bowl. This is where you’ll pack your cannabis, but don’t do that just yet.

Step 3 - Extend the Bowl

Using that poking implement we mentioned, poke down through the center of the apple until you are halfway down.

Step 4 - Construct the Mouthpiece and Carb

Take that same poking device and go sideways through the center of the apple, creating a narrow tunnel that goes through the original hole that you carved in Step 3. This tunnel should create two holes - one on either side of the apple. One of these holes will be your mouthpiece, which you’ll smoke from, and the other will act as your carb hole.

Step 5 - Pack the Bowl

Pack your cannabis into the top section of the apple and get ready for liftoff.

Step 6 - Enjoy

Light the cannabis in the bowl, and use the mouthpiece and carb holes like you would on any other pipe. Relax, and enjoy your medicine.
