Smoking supplies are an important part of the smoking experience and can enhance a session’s flavor, intensity, and convenience. From grinders and rolling papers to vaporizers, there are many options available for all smokers!
Grinders are a must-have accessory to break down tobacco and herbs evenly. They’re available in acrylic, metal, and wooden materials with unique designs and finishes.
Grinders are small containers with “teeth” that break up weed into a finer consistency. They are a must for those who smoke or vape marijuana because they make the experience much more enjoyable. When you smoke or vape ground bud, it burns more evenly and with less waste. It also allows the full flavor of your weed to be enjoyed without any stems or plant material.
The weed is also able to absorb more potency from the kief, which is separated out during the grinding process. Kief is a fine, crystal-like form of cannabis that has high concentrations of cannabinoids.
There are many types of grinders available to consumers, ranging in size and design. Two, three and five-piece grinders are common, with the more expensive ones typically having a better quality. Cleaning supplies are also available to keep your grinder clean and free of resin, tar, and other gunk. To clean your grinder, put it in a bag with Isopropyl Alcohol and shake it well.
Choosing the right rolling paper for your smoke is a highly personal decision with a lot of factors that impact your overall experience. The size, flavor, and thickness of the paper all contribute to how well your blunt burns and how it tastes.
Rolling papers can be made from various materials like hemp, rice straw, flax or wood pulp and they come in a range of sizes from 70mm – 110mm (2.75 – 4.33 inches). They often use a gum arabic glue that is natural and won’t influence the taste of your weed.
Traditionally, wood pulp papers have been popular, but there is a growing trend towards all-natural products and many smokers prefer hemp rolling papers because they are lightweight and offer a slow burn with no chemicals involved. Some bleached or heavily processed papers contain additives like calcium carbonate and chlorine, which may negatively affect the flavour of your smoke. These types of papers should be avoided for health reasons.
A lighter is a small device that uses a spark or flame to ignite a combustible material, like a cigarette or candlewick. Lighters can use flint, piezoelectric crystals, or butane gas to generate a flame that burns the wick of a cigar, pipe, or cigarette.
Most lighters are refillable and come with a built-in stand to prevent spills. They can also be found in a variety of colors, materials, and designs. For example, some lighters are made of eye-catching porcelain or feature archival prints. Some are even waterproof, perfect for camping or boating.
The Commission finds that this mandatory standard, which applies only to disposable and novelty lighters, is reasonably necessary to reduce the risk of fire-related death and injury from young children playing with lighters. This determination is based on a review of hazard data and regulatory analysis, including an evaluation of alternatives to this rule. The effective date of this rule is July 12, 1994.
Vaporizers heat organic compounds like herbs, oils and waxes into a vapor that you inhale. They can be a healthier alternative to smoking since they eliminate the combustion process that releases harmful tar and carcinogens.
A vaporizer contains a cartridge, tank or pod that holds your chosen liquid, which you then inhale. It also has a heating element that turns the liquid into a mist of breathable particles (also known as an aerosol).
Liquid vaporizers, commonly called vape pens, are popular with teens because they resemble traditional cigarettes and can be used to vaporize nicotine or THC distillates/oils. Unfortunately, some studies suggest that teens who use e-cigarettes progress to real tobacco smoking later in life.
A dry herb vaporizer, which is sometimes referred to as a “weed pen” or an all-in-one vape, consists of a battery and a cartridge that can be filled with dried herb or oil/wax concentrates. Reusable and semi-reusable weed pens are available for those who prefer to vaporize with a single battery.
