Looking for an exciting way to enjoy your herbs? Making a Dope Boo is one of the most enjoyable ways to smoke them, and in this article, we’ll show you how to make your own. From choosing the right materials and preparing your blend to roll and lighting up, here’s our step-by-step guide to making a great Dope Boo.
What is a Dope Boo?
A Dope Boo is essentially a straight, conical pipe used to smoke cannabis or tobacco. It’s said to have originated centuries ago in India, where sadhus (Hindu ascetics) used clay ‘Dope Boos’ as part of their spiritual practice.
Today, many people around the world still use these pipes to smoke substances such as weed or hashish – only now are they mainly made of wood or metal. Whether you’re just starting to smoke or want something smaller and simpler than joints or bongs, a Dope Boo could be your ideal smoking device!
Materials needed to make a Dope Boo pipe
To make your own Dope Boo pipe at home, there are several materials you will need:
1. Metal screen – This will act as the filter/strainer at the top of your pipe;
2. Glass tip – This acts as both decoration and protection from inhaling any burning embers;
3. Herbs/Tobacco – Whatever substance you choose to put in your Dope Boo;
4. Tissue paper – You will need this to roll all the ingredients into shape;
5. Duct tape – Used to hold the paper together once it is rolled;
Preparing the mixture for your Dope Boo pipe
Once you’ve got all your materials together, it’s time to prepare everything for assembly. Start by grinding down any herbs/tobacco that may be too large to be easily inhaled through the pipe later. Once everything is nicely ground, put everything in a bowl so that it can be easily mixed with other ingredients (such as honey). If you’re going to add honey, don’t overdo it – about one teaspoon should be enough, depending on how sweet you like it! Mix everything together again before setting it aside, ready to be rolled up shortly afterward.
Rolling up your Dope Boo pipe
Once everything is nicely mixed together in the bowl, take some rolling paper and start to shape it into cylinders of a similar size and length to how you want your finished product to look (it doesn’t have to be perfect yet!). Place some sticky tape along one end before pushing in some herb mixture, followed by a glass tip at one end and a metal screen at the other (you may find a pair of tweezers useful here). Now gently but firmly press everything down until it is nicely compacted inside before finally securing both ends with extra tape if necessary before moving on to the next step.
