Original Post: High Times: 7 Common Marijuana Tools Every Stoner Needs
Ed. Note: Not everyone smokes but for those of us who do, these are tools that will all come in handy. Well, maybe except for the rolling machine. I can roll some pretty good joints and they look straight and nice and pretty.
There’s nothing complicated about smoking weed. But if you want to do it right, you need to have a few marijuana smoking tools at your disposal. Having the right gear will help you get the most out of your stash. It will also ensure that your smoking experience is as good as it can be. With that said, here are some basic marijuana smoking tools you need to have.
When you’re talking about essential marijuana tools, you’ve got to have a good grinder. If you don’t grind up your bud first, you won’t be getting as much out of your weed as you should be. That’s because you’ll be burning through it too quickly.
Instead, give it a grind first to increase the surface area. This means there’s more green to burn, which in turn means more high times for you.
There’s a surprisingly wide range of grinders out there on the market. Some are bare bones basic. Others are more fancy, using motors and various cutting blades to ensure a consistent grind.
But whatever you do, get something that will cut your weed — not shred it into a mess. And get one that has a kief catcher. That way you can easily save that super potent powder for future use.
Like grinders, there are tons of storage containers now on the market. Hardcore weedheads can even get high-end humidity controlled boxes to dial in the perfect environment for their weed.
But you don’t have to go all-out to store your bud. Just be sure that you find something clean with a resealable lid. Ideally, you should store your weed in a place that’s out of direct sunlight, that stays at a slightly cool room temperature, and that doesn’t let in a lot of humidity.
When it comes to marijuana smoking tools, a slide dugout is an important one. It’s also relatively overlooked in the world of marijuana tools.
Basically, a slide dugout is the simplest way to smoke on the go. Usually, a slide dugout is made out of wood and features a slidable lid.
Beneath the lid, there will typically be two cylindrical openings. The first is to store a simple one-hitter. The other is for ground up weed. When you’re puffing on the go, simply slide the lid, pull out your one-hitter, pack it up, and light up.
Multi-tools should be included in your basic kit of marijuana smoking tools. Look for one that features as many different marijuana tools as possible.
These will often include things like scissors to cut up your weed, a tamping tool, scrapers, dab spoons, and maybe even extra features like a flashlight.
In some circles, there might be some stigma attached to using a rolling machine to twist up your Js. But don’t let it get to you.
Rolling machines are actually essential marijuana smoking tools. They’re generally inexpensive and they’re excellent for rolling perfectly uniform joints each and every time.
And they’re not just for rookies or failed joint-rollers. Rolling machines are excellent for the full range of weed smokers. For beginners, they’re a great way to learn how to roll with your fingers. And for pros, rolling machines are a good option when you want to roll quicker, or if you want especially uniform joints.
Any kit of marijuana tools is incomplete unless it includes an odor-proof bag. This is the best, safest way to walk around with weed.
Thanks to the growing legalization of marijuana, there are now more options on this front than ever before. You don’t have to use only Ziploc baggies. Now, you can buy specially-built backpacks designed to completely hide the smell of your weed.
Similarly, some companies also make and sell high-end women’s handbags that are scent free; a much more elegant option for keeping weed on the down-low.
Glass Pipe Cleaning Solution
This can be a specially made solution designed for bongs and glass bowls. Or it can be a simple solution of rubbing alcohol and kosher salt.
In this case, the rubbing alcohol breaks apart resin build-ups in your pipe. Meanwhile, the salt is abrasive enough to scrape off anything gunking up your piece without damaging the glass.
Marijuana Smoking Tools To Keep Handy
The marijuana smoking tools on this list cover all the fundamental needs of a weed smoker. For each of these marijuana tools, you can find affordable options. Many times, you can even repurpose common household items and use them as marijuana tools instead.
Alternatively, you can also scale up your marijuana tools. You can purchase high-end elite marijuana tools like humidors, handbags, and more.
Either way, building up a toolbox of effective marijuana smoking tools will help you puff like a pro.
