Now more than ever, I’ve been having many conversations with my friends about how they choose to experience weed. Many of them like to just eat it in a simple baked goodie or lean more towards the quick and hard hitting pen. But on those days they find time for themselves, they make an event out of the whole experience. They all almost sound like the Little Mermaid, with their whozits and whatzits galore. So I figured I’d break it down for those who are newer to weed and aren’t quite sure what thingamabobs they might need!
A well-known classic, but if you’re not quite sure what I’m talking about, let me bring you up to speed. A grinder is a simple gadget used to effortlessly break down a cannabis flower, creating a consistent amount for rolling or packing. Considered by many to be an essential accessory, it’s a must have in your arsenal. Grinders can easily be bought in your local smoke shop and most times have been decked out to feature your favorite character from a show or with crazy designs, offering the option for primo personalization. Grinders also have what is known as the Kief Catcher, which is an extremely valuable contraption. Kief is the dry part of the plant that contains copious amounts of THC, CBD and terpenes. Meaning that, if used probably, Kief can get you where you want to go. Grinders are not only small and personable, they are also undoubtedly a great tool for both new and experienced smokers.
This one is a bit self explanatory, it is a machine that kindly rolls your blunts. You simply just place your choice of paper, pack it with the essentials and let it do the rest. The fancy ones can heat up whatever is put onto the paper; whether it be tobacco, cannabis, a mix of both, could possibly be kief if you’re using your grinder. Once it’s done heating your special concoction, it will roll up your joint ever so gently and seal it with a filter. Even though some sound super futuristic and high tech, they are incredibly easy to get your hands on. All it takes is a quick google search and an Amazon account.
A oney bat or a one-hitter, is a thin pipe used for a single, simple, hit. It heats up the cannabis and vaporizes it. It just takes 3 simple steps: load the cart, light the hammer, and inhale. Cleaning it out is also just as easy, just a click of a button. Oneies, are used with the intent to microdose and to help eliminate the change of over-smoking. They, too, come in a wide variety of fun colors to choose from and are reusable!
As more people start to become more open towards weed, the more creative the community gets with indulging. There are so many accessories out there to elevate your experience. Someone could make a top 40 list, but amongst my friends these seemed to be the standouts!
