If you’re new to the cannabis market, smoke shops can be a little intimidating. Blowing glass in the shop, graphic art prints, the overwhelming incense smell and the grim friendly attitude of the employee in the front counter area can be enough to put anyone on edge.
A visit to a dispensary may not be the best option. Similar to going into an Apple store, the sheer amount and variety of marijuana products can seem overwhelming. It’s not like you have the time to go through all this … but perhaps you’d appreciate your cannabis more in the event that you knew how to smoke and carry it around with you?
Although this may seem obvious, it’s not a good idea to spend more money on smoking accessories than the things you’ll smoke. Only a handful of everyday items are all you require to enjoy a pleasant relaxed smoke, as well as many of its psychological and physical advantages that it provides.
The shape, size, and materials of your pipe (or bowl) you select comes down to your personal taste. If you’re an aspiring smoker then you’re probably better choosing a smaller pipe, as it lets you control the amount you smoke at any given moment. If you’re not confident or want to carry your pipe around inside your purse (as we are all guilty of) opt for the one made from borosilicate glass. This will ensure that you’re secured from breakage while maintaining the taste of your smoke.
Pipes are a fundamental marijuana necessity If you’re looking for smoother, more creamy smoke, then you’ll want to invest in bubblers. Much smaller than a bong to allow you to use the device with one hand, these handheld water pipes come with smaller chambers, which allow you to enjoy the taste that comes from your smoke. Find a bubbler with a double chamber for a smoother texture.
Bag or Jar
The old saying “Don’t be caught with the bag” does not apply as much in the present, when marijuana has been legalized in several states. The new phrase should be “Don’t catch yourself holding inferior bags.” Yes the one that needs work … however, the basic principle is the same. While a standard Ziploc can do the job, the plastic is thin, can easily tear, and isn’t the best choice for shielding your bud against the weather. We recommend a small stash bag with a sturdy yet slim profile and temperature-fast food-grade silicone.
A loose nug in your bowl can be an invitation to a poor smoking experience.This is why it’s important to have a grinder. Two-part grinders are among the most basic options with just the lid and a grinding compartment. Three-part grinders come with an area for collecting the weed that have been crushed and four-part grinders include an additional compartment for collecting the crystals known as kief that form at the base of the buds. (This material is something to save; placed inside a bowl or sprinkled over the the top of joints and smoke is made even more appealing.) While it is possible to buy cheap plastic grinders or beautiful wooden ones steel grinders make the ideal option — efficient, robust, durable, and tough to break.
