As recreational and medical marijuana legalization continues to spread across the country, the market for cannabis accessories is also growing. There are plenty of different options for smokers today, including some that have been around as long as cannabis smoking itself, and some new tools that are a big hit, too.
In this guide, we’ll take a look at some of the most common and popular accessories that can help you enjoy your cannabis in all kinds of ways. Let’s start with the tools you can use to get your smoke on, and then we’ll look at accessories and other extras you should consider.
Marijuana pipes come in all sizes, styles, and materials. The most common are glass and silicone, but you can also find metal pipes, bats, and one-hitters that are discreet for personal use. There are several different names for marijuana pipes, depending on who you ask and what you’re looking for. However, if you want something that you can hold in your hand to smoke with, this is what you want.
When choosing your pipe, you’ll have to think about the style you like and the size you want. In the past, glass was the most common choice for materials, but today a lot of people are choosing silicone instead. After all, it’s easy to clean and care for, and unlike glass, it won’t break when you drop it (which happens more often than some of us would like to admit).
You’ll find marijuana hand pipes under names like:
Make sure you choose quality pieces for durability and long-lasting enjoyment.
Some people think of bongs as a party accessory, but the selection today includes bongs in every shape and size, including those small enough for one. Like pipes, bongs are typically made of glass or silicone, with the latter increasing in popularity more recently.
However, with bongs, most people still prefer glass styles because of their beauty and function. There are basic bongs with a bowl and not much else, all the way up to intricate bongs with built-in percolators or ice chambers and other features. If you want a really nice piece of glass, expect to spend a few hundred dollars.
On the other hand, if you just need a basic bong to get high, your local smoke shop should have something in the $20-$40 range.
Vaporizers are a newer accessory in the cannabis world. They are extremely popular, however, because they offer a discreet, easy way to enjoy cannabis flower and extracts. In some states where medical marijuana is legal, vaporization is the only way you’re allowed to consume cannabis. Therefore, these devices are essential for some.
You’ll find some vaporizers at your local dispensary, too, since they’re a popular choice among the clientele. Although dispensaries aren’t as stocked as a smoke shop, the selection of accessories is growing by the day. It won’t be long before you can get everything in one place.
Vaporizers also range in price from low-end models that cost less than $100 to premium rigs that can run you $300 or more. There are handheld vaporizers and tabletop vaporizers, too, so you’ll have to consider which you prefer.
What can we say about rolling papers? They’ve been around forever and they’re usually one of the first ways many of us got high. They might even still be your favorite option. Today, there are a lot more choices for rolling papers, including those made of hemp and bamboo, rice paper, and more.
You can even find pre-made cones that use tips and rolling papers to do the work for you. Then you can just grind your flower and stuff the cone—no rolling required! It’s always good to have some papers or cones on hand in case you want them. Buy a multipack and stock up if you want, because they shouldn’t go bad for at least a couple of years if you store them properly. Plus, they’re cheap!
A popular alternative to papers is the blunt wrap. Also called a wrap, shell, blunt, cigarillo, or any other number of street names, these wraps are usually made of tobacco. Some, in the case of cigars or cigarillos, come pre-filled with tobacco and you can split them open, dump the tobacco, and add your favorite flower.
Today, there are a growing number of blunt wraps that are sold like papers that you roll yourself, saving the hassle of cutting them open and getting rid of the tobacco. There are also wraps made out of hemp, palm leaves, and other types of plants that don’t include tobacco or nicotine. It’s also another inexpensive option, and with a little practice, you’ll find that rolling blunts isn’t all that difficult.
As technology increases, so does the selection of tools and toys available for enjoying your cannabis. Dab rigs are designed to help you use concentrates. You can find small and large “rigs” that usually include a glass piece and another piece known as a nail, which you use to dab up the concentrate.
There are also electric dab rigs on the market today, but those can get spendy. If you’ve got the money, however, they’re a nice, clean way to enjoy your cannabis and maximize your high.
While there’s something to be said for breaking up your flower by hand, it’s also tedious and time-consuming. Not only that but then you aren’t able to get it as fine as it could be for cones and blunts. Grinders make that easy. You can find grinders in small and large sizes, as well as manual and electric grinders.
Simply insert your flower into the grinder part of the device, grind, and then open the catch and enjoy your freshly ground flower! Depending on what you have in mind, you can find basic grinders for less than $20 or high-end electric models in the hundreds of dollars.
Sandwich bags and random jars are a thing of the past. Today, there is an entire category of cannabis accessories dedicated to storage. This includes:
Your local dispensary will have some of the latest items in the storage collection, but you can also find them online and at your local smoke shop.
Dugouts are a classic smoker’s secret tool. With these handy little pocket-sized gadgets, you can load up a bunch of ground weed, pack it into a bat that looks like a regular cigarette, and then light up and enjoy a couple puffs without anyone being the wiser.
Old-school dugouts are still around, along with modern, improved versions. If you like to keep a little cannabis on you at all times, or even if you just want a handy emergency stash, this is a good choice.
If you’re smoking flower, you’re going to need ashtrays. Sure, you can head to your local discount store and pick up a generic plastic or glass ashtray, but why not get something that matches your personality and smoking style? The selection of cannabis ashtrays is impressive and even includes options in glass, silicone, metal, and more.
There you have it—the essential cannabis accessories that you need to know about. If you’re looking for the latest in gear, head over to your local Verts Dispensary and see what’s new.
