Unique Weed Accessories: 10 Upscale Essentials for Savvy Stoners

Is your smoking kit up to snuff, so to speak? Every stoner has his or her own list of essentials—the indispensable accouterments that add to every at-home session and make smoking on the go a breeze.

Chances are, you have at least one or two of these savvy stoner essentials in your smoking kit already, but we can almost guarantee that you don’t have all of them. These are—without question—the 10 must-have cannabis and hemp flower smoking companions that we rely on day-to-day, including a smell-proof stash box, rice rolling papers, a grinder card, a sleek one-hitter, and more.

Give your smoking kit a complete makeover, add a missing piece to your pot-smoking puzzle, or just dive in to get a feel for some of the best stoner accessories on the market right now with our guide below.

A Good One-Hitter

Some things don’t change. How does the saying go… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Quick and simple, the unbreakable one-hitter is still a smoker’s staple, despite the current boom of cannabis technology.

A well-packed one-hitter still delivers a resounding wallop of smoke, making it a preferred method for skiers, hikers, skateboarders, and other outdoor enthusiasts, and on-the-go herb aficionados in general. And please, whatever you do, don’t opt for the one hitter that’s painted like a cigarette—you’re seriously not fooling anyone.

Grass City has a huge variety of awesome one-hitters you should check out.

VapeXhale EVO

Are dab rigs and the associated blowtorch just not your vibe? Look to VapeXhale—the undisputed glass monarch of the vaporizer kingdom. The EVO vaporizer was developed from an amalgamation of science experiments, years of research and development, and input from hundreds of dedicated stoners via weed forums.

The resulting product is a vaporizer that combines the health benefits of vaping with the pound-for-pound knockout abilities of a water pipe. Whether you’re looking to dab a cannabis or CBD concentrate like 99% CBD Isolate or vape your favorite bud or hemp flower, the EVO’s ultra-effective, glass-encapsulated heating element delivers hard-hitting, dense, delicious vapor in every hit.

Grinder Card

Bulky coffee table grinders aren’t exactly inconspicuous—and oftentimes you don’t want to break your back bringing one with you when you’re traveling. A grinder card can slide into your wallet like a credit card, although we recommend stashing it in its designated pocket in the Safety Case. Whip out the grinder card in a pinch, and, like a compact version of your kitchen grater or zester, you’ll be looking at a small pile of finely ground herbs in no time at all. Perfect for rolling joints or packing a vape pen on the run, a grinder card combines utility and portability perfectly.

You can find a wide variety of really cool grinder cards over at Amazon for great prices.

Glass Blunt

OK— we’re going to say it: glass blunts are absolutely underrated. Sure, we’re fans of a good old-fashioned Swisher Sweet every once and a while (I’m partial to grape or original, but the new flavors like blueberry are a fun departure from the expected), but the wide chamber of a glass blunt can be easily packed with 1.5 grams of flower and smoked down to the tube.

Not only does a glass blunt have a high capacity, if you’re truly sampling some high-grade, but there’s also no reason to introduce conflicting flavors in the form of an artificially-flavored blunt wrap. Instead, go with this heavy-hitting alternative that—if you’re burning blunts regularly—will save you both trees and trips to the gas station for Phillies.

MagBlunt makes a good one which you can find here, or head over to Grass City to check out this one from Grav Labs for only $11.99.

Rolling Tips

Nothing gives away a stoner like a mutilated business card. For the infrequent smoker, going Hannibal Lecter on a movie ticket or tearing off a corner of a pack of gum is a fair enough move, and very in-keeping with the resourceful stoner spirit.

However, if joints are your preferred method of smoking, snagging some rolling tips is a power move. A smooth, round filter (or crutch) will help create smoother rolls and prevent that dreaded sogginess that comes with a round or two of passing a paper joint.

Of course, you could always roll a joint without a filter—just don’t expect your friends to want to suck on that soggy, bedraggled excuse for a cone after a couple rotations.

Grasshopper Vape Pen

If James Bond were to soothe his muscles with a little CBD after a day of derailing an international crime syndicate, this is the vaporizer he’d rely on. MI-6 didn’t have anything to do with this ingenious gadget, although it was developed by aerospace engineers.

This literal vape “pen” performs admirably with flower and is a perfect addition to any smoking kit—especially if discretion is of the utmost concern. A gorgeously designed little chameleon that mimics an expensive pen, the Grasshopper camouflages right in at the office.

Rice Rolling Papers

Wood papers? No, thanks! Why buy high-quality flower if you’re going to skimp on paper? Hemp is a decent middle-ground, but rice paper burns slower and cleaner. Rice rolling papers are a bit trickier to roll at first because they’re so thin, but eventually, you’ll get used to them. As an added bonus, that learning curve will only amplify your rolling skills.

Nuggy 2 10-in-1 Multi-Tool

Call it a poker, call it a dabber, call it whatever you want—just don’t call it unnecessary. The Nuggy 2 is the stoner’s Swiss Army Knife, and it can be employed in a million ways. Use it to break up oil, take dabs, pack joints, clean your one-hitter, load your vape pen, etc.

The spoon-shaped tip makes for an effective scooper, while the handle can serve as a poker or more agile scraper for small spaces. Whatever your preferred method of smoking, having a Nuggy in your kit will make many a toker’s task even easier.

Moroccan Ashtray

No one wants to see an ashtray overflowing with old roaches. Moroccan ashtrays add a touch of classiness to the smoker’s coffee table. They look like a curved, ornately painted honeypots, but with ridged edges to hold still-smoking joints and an open cavity to stash the remnants of past sessions.

Smell-Proof Storage

Not every smoker is a stereotype—so why smoke like one? For the active professional on the hunt for a sleek, discreet, and simple smoking kit, there is truly no better investment. The smell-proof Safety Case has an inconspicuous yet sleek outer aesthetic—and on the inside, a customizable stash compartment perfect for organizing your vape pen, joints, pipes, blunts, oils, flower, papers, and more.

Bonus: Hemp Flower for Symptom Relief with CBD

You’ve likely seen many different CBD concentrates on the market, but did you know you can smoke or vape raw, organic hemp flower for fast-acting, full-spectrum doses of CBD?

We like the organic, non-GMO, sustainably grown, independently tested, federally legal hemp flower strains by Canna Comforts. Each of their diverse varietals looks, smells, tastes, and smokes just like the top-shelf cannabis strain that inspired it. We enjoy a joint or bowl of Lifter (topped off with a bit of Elektra Kief for extra symptom relief), but their diverse array of strains ensures the right cannabinoid profile for any purpose and any patient.

Chances are, you have at least one or two of these savvy stoner essentials already, but we can almost guarantee you don’t have all of these weed accessories

The 14 Essential Weed Accessories Every Stoner Needs

Imagine buying fresh new bud, only to realize you’ve run out of rolling papers! There is nothing worse for a stoner than not having the items and weed accessories you need when you need them.

Whether you’re new to smoking or a long-time stoner, there are certain accessories that every cannabis connoisseur needs in their kit. Ready to go shopping?

The types of weed accessories you need vary by your preferred consumption method—someone who prefers vaping is going to need a completely different assortment of products than someone who smokes.

Accessories for Smoking

1. A Lighter (or Two!)

Whether you smoke joints or use a bong, a lighter is an absolute necessity when smoking weed. Have you ever found yourself with some dank bud, a loaded pipe, or tightly rolled joint and no way to light it?

No one wants to sit down to smoke and realize they don’t have a lighter. Stock up with a couple of lighters so that you know you will never find yourself stuck without one.

If you’ve got pockets, establish a designated lighter pocket, or always carry one in your purse or bag. Some people even have an emergency lighter stashed somewhere safe.

  • Tip: Unique lighters that stand out will lessen the chance of someone “accidentally” stealing it. From personal experience, I’ve found that bright pink lighters or ones with a pattern/design on them are much less likely to be lost than a blue or black lighter.
2. An Ashtray

It may seem obvious, but if you’re new to smoking, you might forget one of the absolute essentials: an ashtray. Having an ashtray nearby will save you the trouble of having to ash into a whatever’s nearby- whether it’s a glass, plate, or empty beer can.

Old ashes piling up can be pretty unsightly. Plus, there are tons of cool ashtrays out there. Why not add a new accessory to your living room? Find an ashtray made of ceramic or silver, and guests will be asking where you got it.

3. Eye Drops

Eye drops are something that every stoner should have in his/her back pocket. They especially come in handy when you have a busy day ahead of you. Most of us don’t want to show up to an event with red eyes that lets everyone know we’ve been smoking. Not to mention the dryness or itchiness that your eyes can experience when you’re high.

Look into what kind of eye drops are right for the symptoms you experience when smoking.

Accessories for Bongs and Dab Rigs

4. Cleaners and Brushes

Smoking from a bong that has never been cleaned can significantly alter the flavour of your bud. The water will get dark, and the resin will cake to the sides of the bowl. If you’re going to be smoking from a bong, it is essential to keep your bong clean after each smoking session.

Bongs are easy to clean with some rubbing alcohol and sea salt, and brushes can also help. Cleaning your bong regularly will keep it sparkling, which helps your lungs, too. Seeing clear water at the bottom of your bong will give you peace of mind whenever you sit down to smoke weed.

5. Glass Pipe or Bowl

Remember those high school days of smoking out of an apple or Coke can? Nasty, right? Those days are long gone. Every stoner needs a nice piece to smoke out of. Glass bowls and pipes are portable and easy to use.

  • Tip: Smoking weed with a pipe or bowl is much easier to use for beginners, especially if you don’t know how to smoke a joint.
6. Dab Rigs

Dabbing can be intimidating to newcomers, but it’s worth it for long-time stoners to look into the benefits of dabbing concentrates. When done safely, dabbing can have powerful effects that kick in almost instantly. If you’re wondering what to dab, you’ve got a lot of options. Have a look at our concentrates menu and choose from our selection of quality cannabis oils, shatter, and budder.

Rolling Accessories

7. Rolling Papers

When it comes to weed accessories, rolling accessories are something every stoner should have in their arsenal. Joints are the ultimate option for smoking away from your home base—there’s no need to carry a pipe or bong, just a thin pack of papers. Natural rolling papers like Raw Classic rolling papers are cheap and easy to keep around for any time you may need them, and they easily fit into a purse or wallet.

8. Grinder

Most stoners can remember a time before they got their first grinder. Back when they would rub their fingers together to break up buds until they were small enough to roll, leaving them with sticky fingers and dirty fingernails. Fortunately, those days are long gone for most stoners.

A grinder is a necessity these days. A grinder with a kief catcher will also help you separate and collect all the resinous crystals, which you can sprinkle on your joints for a little extra kick. If you saved enough, you could even press it into hash!

If you need a grinder, check out the “Accessories” section of the Budmail menu.

9. Pre-Rolled Joints

Rolling your own joint is great and all, and it’s a skill that we’d highly recommend anyone learning, but sometimes all you want to do is kick back and smoke without the hassle. That’s when a pre-rolled joint comes in handy. Get pre-rolled 1g joints delivered to you anywhere in Canada!

10. Joint filters

Joint filters come in wildly handy and make smoking joints so much easier, especially when you get to the end. For those that don’t know, joint filters are small pieces of paper that go at the end of the joint to not only keep the weed from getting in your mouth as you toke but to give your fingers extra room to hold onto so your fingers don’t get as sticky or smelly from your smoke sessions.

You also don’t have to worry about accidentally burning yourself if you toke too hard or mess up the hand-off, and they also prevent your joint from clogging up at the end.

Business cards are commonly cut up to make filters, but if you’re running low on those, you can always get the Raw Rollings Tips from Budmail to ensure your joint satisfaction.

Weed Storage Accessories

11. Smell Proof Containers

For all stoners, weed is precious—after all, it can be quite expensive. Which makes it essential to find ways to store weed to keep it fresh while containing its distinctive aroma. You may smoke daily, but that doesn’t mean you want your house to smell like weed.

You’ll definitely want to add a glass jar to your weed stash accessories- like the ones we use to store our Premier Line strains. These amber glass storage jars are packed to the brim with beautiful BC bud, and even better, you can use them again and again.

Buying weed that already comes in its own storage container saves the hassle of worrying about where you will store it.

Glass jars are perfect for storing weed because they seal tight to keep your weed fresher longer and are exponentially more smell-proof than a plastic baggie.

You may think of mason jars as generally storing jam or pickles, but they make the perfect smell proof container for weed. Mason jars are affordable and easy to find at most grocery or department stores.

Weed Vaping Accessories

12. Vaporizer

Smoking weed is great, but it’s easy to worry about its effect on your lungs. Vaporizing is a safer option than smoking, and it’s easier to be discreet about it. Every stoner should consider adding a vaporizer to their collection of best weed accessories.

A disposable vaporizer like this one from Oro can be a great way to medicate on the down-low. The honey oil used in the vape is derived from pesticide-free, outdoor-grown plants in British Columbia, so you can be sure you’re getting one of the best disposable weed vapes in Canada.

If you’re really into vaping, then you’ll probably want to leave the disposable vapes behind and get a reusable vape and refill cartridges, instead. These refill cartridges from Secret Garden Extracts are independently lab tested to contain

77% THC! Now that’s bang for your buck. Plus, you won’t have to worry about your vaporizer running low if you stock up today. These cartridges are full of flavour.

13. Battery and Charger

In addition to being easier on the lungs than smoking, vaping is also more discreet. With vaping, you don’t have to worry about the pungent odour of weed smoke giving you away anymore. You can vape anywhere on the go without having to worry about ash either, although you might want to be mindful of areas that are supposed to be smoke (and vape) free like parks and beaches.

You can make it even easier to vape from anywhere with a battery and charger from BC Trees. You could even take the vape with you out into the forests of British Columbia and surrounded by the real BC trees; you won’t have to worry about your vape going dead. Even better, there are none of the fire hazards from smoking to worry about, either.

For the foodies

14. Stainless Steel Double Boiler

This one might feel unexpected. But when it comes to baking with cannabis, a stainless-steel double boiler is clutch. Oils and butter can be infused with bud in the covered top pot. A double boiler is especially perfect for tempering cannabis chocolates. What could be a better weed accessory for foodies than the ability to make cute personalized weed chocolates or whip up a batch of special brownies?

That’s All, Folks

While that’s all we have for our list today, there are plenty more weed accessories on the market to make sure you are set to get blazed anywhere, anytime. While every stoner should stock up on these 14 essentials, check out the Budmail store for more accessories, as well as quality flower, edibles, topicals, and more—we even have products for pets!
