Nearly 35 million American adults use some form of cannabis at least a few times a month. If you’re one of them, you know that the right strain of weed can make all the difference in how you feel and the type of high you get.
There’s more to creating a perfect smoking experience than choosing the best strain for your mood. You need the right tools to prepare and enjoy your weed fully.
Not sure where to start? Make sure to add these great cannabis accessories to your collection.
1. A Good Grinder
The key to a great smoking experience is properly prepared weed. No matter how high-quality your bud is, you won’t be able to get the full taste of it as you smoke unless you prep it right. To do this, you’ll need a high-quality metal grinder.
Metal grinders break up large chunks of flower into small smokable and long-burning bits. Unlike their plastic counterparts, metal grinders won’t leave behind a strange aftertaste and won’t get dull after just a few uses.
Even better, they won’t warp if you accidentally leave them in your pocket when you do your laundry or forget them inside your hot car on a sunny afternoon.
Look for a 3 or 4-piece grinder with separate containers to catch all the weed you grind up. 2-piece grinders work, but you risk wasting some of your pot after every use.
2. Air-Tight Storage Containers
Dried flower can and will lose potency over time. The process speeds up significantly when your favorite strain gets exposed to air, humidity, and direct sunlight light.
Every cannabis enthusiast should have at least a few air-tight storage containers on hand. These feature tight-fitting lids that keep your bud fresh for weeks at a time. This will help you get the most out of your stash so you can make fewer trips to the dispensary.
It will also help keep smells from leaching out of the container which is ideal for discreet smokers and tokers.
Keep the size of your stash in mind when choosing a storage container. If you’re the type of person that likes to carry and share your weed with friends, choose a container that’s small enough to fit in your pocket or bag. If you tend to only smoke at home, choose a larger container that can hold your bud.
The materials you choose aren’t important. What matters is that you like the look of the container and that the lid seals completely.
3. A High-Quality Bong
If you buy flower, chances are you like to smoke it. Every cannabis lover needs a high-quality bong to make those smoke sessions at home more enjoyable.
There are different types of bongs on the market and the one you choose depends largely on your personal preference and your budget.
The more ornate they look, the more work went into making them and the more expensive they’ll be.
Think about how you’ll use it and whether you want to display your bong at home. If you’re looking for a bong to take on the go, look for one that’s made of shatter-resistant glass. If you want a statement piece for your home, invest in a larger blown-glass bong.
4. Refillable Lighters
Every smoker needs a lighter. Sure, you can stick with the cheap one-time-use lighters you find in the grocery store, but you don’t have to.
Elevate your cannabis gear by upgrading to a refillable lighter. Refillable lighters come in different shapes and have different casing materials to help you showcase your personality.
As an added bonus, you’ll decrease your carbon footprint by keeping those disposable lighters out of the landfill once and for all!
5. Pipe Cleaning Kits and Screens
Pipes are a wonderful way to enjoy the full flavor of your favorite strain, but they need to be clean if you want to keep things pure. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a mouthful of charred resin and memories of smoke sessions past.
Invest in a pipe cleaning kit and give your pipe some TLC every time the buildup in the bowl gets too thick. Once it’s cleaned out, consider adding a pipe screen to the mix, too.
Pipe screens help keep you from accidentally inhaling burning bits of bud through your pipe’s mouthpiece. They’re best to install when the bowl is clean and can give you a smoother, more enjoyable smoking experience.
6. A Fully Stocked Rolling Kit
Rolling a perfect joint is tough, but it’s much easier if you have all your tools at hand. Create a rolling kit or buy one that’s pre-made. Though your kit should have plenty of rolling paper and filters, it should also have a sturdy rolling tray.
The tray helps keep things contained as you’re rolling and reduces the risk of ground-up weed getting blown onto the floor. Ultimately, your kit can evolve as your smoking habits change, but as long as you know where your kit is, you’ll have everything you need to roll a great joint.
7. A Portable Vape Pen
Vape pens are still a great way to enjoy cannabis as long as you buy concentrate from trusted dispensaries. They produce less odor and are incredibly easy to carry with you on the go.
Look for one that’s rechargeable and easy to clean. This way, you’ll be able to get years of enjoyment out of your pen.
