Every smoker has their smokable of choice. Some dry smoking products are rolled in papers, while others are packed into a pipe or vaporizer chamber. No matter your method of smoking, the goal is to have an enjoyable experience each and every time you inhale. However, there’s more to being a smoker than simply owning a smoking apparatus. In fact, being prepared means building a proper smoker’s kit complete with all the right tools for the hobby.
What’s in your kit? Here are a few must have accessories to keep with your favorite glass pipes in Scottsdale, AZ.
A good grinder
Experienced counterculture smokers know the importance of investing in a quality grinder. They also know when it’s time to get a new one. But for as essential as this tool is, many newbies fail to choose a good one the first time around. You should have a grinder that can quickly break down nuggets of dry herb into smokable size, but not pulverize it into dust. Your grinder also contains all the good stuff in a screened chamber, and when the unit is closed, odors stay inside.
While you don’t have to own a grinder, it’s way more effective than the alternative method, which is ripping it apart with your fingers. This can get messy, lead to waste, contaminate your herb and affect its taste. Don’t be afraid to ask your local head shop questions or get help picking out a good grinder.
Glass pipe cleaner
Cleaning your glass pipe often keeps it looking new and makes your inhales tastier. If you smoke regularly, then you know how dirty glass pipes can get. The best thing you can do to keep your pipe in pristine condition for the long term is to clean it (or at least wipe it down) after each use. Here’s something to keep in mind: while a gentle dish soap and water can clean glass, it’s best to buy a premade glass cleaner that can remove resin, burn marks and other residues.
Both loose tobacco and dry herb hold up better when stored in glass jars with airtight lids. Jars not only control odor, but can provide more adequate protection from the elements, like heat, cold and humidity. To ensure your jars are keeping your smokable products’ flavors fresh, store them in a safe, dark place. Most glass jars with lids will work, or you can walk into your neighborhood smoke shop to purchase a brand-new storage container. Consider making the switch today if you’re still using plastic bags for storage!
There’s nothing wrong with using matches to light up, but a lighter can be much more efficient. Having a quality lighter on hand, as opposed to a cheap convenience store lighter, means you are a prepared smoker. If you feel like spending a few extra bucks, find a portable, reusable, heavy-duty lighter with wind-resistant abilities.
