Most simple cannons use an air chamber with a connection to add air. This is connected to a valve of some sort that is somewhat fast and flows well. Simple ones generally use a sprinkler valve or a ball valve. Last is a barrel of some sort. Use your imagination from there. There are lots of good examples in the showcase.

Safety first. Use materials built for the pressure you plan on using.
