Introduction to Weed Accessories
For every cannabis consumption method, there's an arsenal of accessories to augment the experience. From grinders to rolling papers, bongs, vape batteries, and everything in between, the world of weed-smoking accessories is endless.
For cannabis newcomers, it can be daunting to figure out which accessories are essential and which are more specialized for niche consumers. If you're smoking joints, all you need is rolling papers and crutches. If you're using a water pipe, start with a basic glass accessory and a simple bowl and downstem setup. Most weed accessories require careful and consistent cleaning, so the simpler you start, the easier it is to add more accessories to your repertoire later.
Here’s a quick rundown on the primary accessories every canna lover should have on deck:
Grinder: A cylindrical device with multiple chambers for breaking up and catching weed for smoking.
Papers: Papers usually come with crutches or filter tips to prevent acting as a buffer between the joint and inhalation.
Lighter: If you want to spark up, you’ve got to bring the fire.
Vape Battery: A small battery designed to heat cannabis vape cartridges.
Rolling Tray: A square tray with rounded edges designed to help you keep your bud and accessories stable when rolling a joint.
Pipe: The most basic handheld item for smoking cannabis.
Bong: A pipe that filters weed smoke through a water-filled base.
Dab Rig: A water pipe designed explicitly for vaporizing concentrates.
