Top 10 Stoner Essentials (To Be Prepared For Any Session)
If you’re going to do something, you might as well do it right. If you’re going to be a stoner, you might as well be an extremely well-prepared stoner.
Let’s face it, it is a hell of a time to be a stoner. These days, nobody has to compromise when it comes to enjoying greens. Whether you prefer dabs, bongs, vapes, edibles, joints, or anything between, there are options to suit any mood or desire. From the high-tech to the low-tech, you simply cannot go wrong.
So what does it mean to be a “stoner” in this today’s day and age? For one thing, we can probably forget the idea of the cartoonishly-goofy ragamuffin (think Shaggy from Scooby-Doo). No, the Modern Stoner is highly knowledgable and stocked with an arsenal of gear to get the job done.
So what does it really mean to be a stoner? It means being prepared for any type of session life may throw at you. Read on to learn about the Top 10 Stoner Essentials and take advantage of the full range of smoking possibilities!
1. A QUALITY PIECE
Having a good, clean, reliable hand pipe is the jumping off point for any good stoner essentials kit. They are simple & quick to use, travel friendly, and highly customizable to fit your personal taste and style.
If you prefer to roll deep and heavy with a bong, than ash-catchers are a necessary upgrade. Not only do they help keep your glassware fresh & clean by preventing ash and resin from being sucked through, they also add percolation for a smoother, cleaner hit.
No self-respecting stoner would be caught without an ash-catcher on their bong rig... just be sure to match up the correct the size and angle to fit your down stem!
3. A ROLLING TRAY
Nothing says "class" like a proper rolling tray on which to prepare your herbs. Move from room-to-room with your gear without breaking a sweat or making a mess.
Just think of it as the "charcuterie board" for stoners.
4. A GOOD NUG JAR
A good stash jar is going to serve you in multiple ways. Not only will it keep your herbs fresher longer, they are discreetly scent-masking as well.
If you care about maintaining the quality of your greens to achieve the highest quality sessions (you should), then a good stash jar is the first place to start.
5. A QUALITY GRINDER
Do you care about getting the most mileage out of your weed? Getting your hands on a quality, multi-chamber grinder is one of the best tools for achieving this.
Ideally you want to go with something that has sharp teeth for easy grinding and a mesh screen for collecting as much of that crystally, kiefy goodness as possible!
6. A TRAVEL-FRIENDLY CONCENTRATE PEN
Concentrate pens are a newer addition to the stable of smoking methods and have exploded in popularity in recent years. They allow you smoke with ease on the go and incredibly customizable.
Concentrate Vape Pens are the perfect option for stoners out there who aren't afraid to embrace some tech in their set-up.
Not to mention this is probably your most low-key way to consume cannabis short of taking edibles!
7. A ONE-HITTER
One-hitters are simple, easy to use, and never go out of style. They are the epitome of being prepared, as you can keep one nearby at all times, for a quick little hit whenever you need it most.
Don't let the basic build fool you, it's hard to beat the convenience of good 'ol fashioned one-hitter.
8. ROLLING PAPERS
Nothing beats a good pull on a nicely rolled joint. It's a skill every stoner should have, to be able to produce a one in some form or another. Roll 'em from scratch or use a pre-rolled cone... there are really no wrong answers here.
It may seem a little on the nose, but you should always have some papers ready to roll- you never know when the mood will strike and you'll always be appreciated!
9. SMOKE ODOR ELIMINATOR
Hey, just because can turn your whole house into a hazy, dank den doesn't mean you always should! Sometimes you've gotta keep things a little more fresh than that.
There are plenty of options out there specifically formulated to mask & remove smoke odors from your session room. From candles to oils to incense, you're guaranteed to find something that perfectly fits the mood you've created.
10. GLASSWARE CLEANER
This is where we separate the true stoners from the wannabes! The true test of stoner worthiness.
You can have all the best gear and freshest greens, but if your glassware is all gunked-up and filthy then your sessions ain't what they should be!
Not only is dirty glassware disgusting tasting & smelling, it is also extremely hazardous for your health- check out our full blog on glass care here to learn more.
Keeping you glass clean regularly is easy and saves you time in the long run when using a good glassware cleaner.
Just do it already.
