The first time I smoked, it was a little bud of ‘skunk’ weed and we smoked out of a soda can. Fast forward to 2017 and the rise of recreational marijuana has created a wave of products that have influenced how people will be smoking weed in the near future.
There are currently more options to consume cannabis than there has ever been. General smokers can still choose between blunts, bongs, pipes, joints, edibles and dabs, it’s just now some of the pieces available are extremely intricate and quite innovative.
For those people looking for the most innovative smoking accessories, I’ve compiled a list of the newest and coolest ways to smoke weed!
— The Incredibowl —
The Incredibowl is a piece that has gotten great reviews. This piece acts as more of a pipe-type tool and is used by loading your weed into the end, lighting and pulling the slider to clear the chamber.
There are two models to choose from, the difference being that the m420 is about half the size of the i420. What I think is the selling point of these is the fact they are shatterproof and come with a lifetime warranty. Let’s be real. How many glass pipes have you broken?
— Twisty Glass Blunt —
Who doesn’t love blunts? At RMR, we agree that often it is our go to. This Twisty Glass Blunt is a modified version of a regular glass blunt but is just SO MUCH COOLER. For this one, you simply load your ground-up weed into the glass tube, twist the cork-screw-like piece in, and smoke. The glass tube holds up to 1.5 grams of weed and has an ‘infini-cherry’ so you don’t even have to light it before every pull. DOPE.
— Coffee Mug Telescoping WaterPipe —
An inventive twist on an old school classic, this coffee cup actually transforms into a bong. The handle turns into the bowl piece and the cup slides up to extends to 2.5 feet for an on-the-go hit like no other.
— The Pensimple —
While this may not be something to smoke out of, for us seasoned stoners it is something we can all agree should be in our arsenal. The Pensimple is an electric herb grinder that dispenses weed for the perfect bowl. No more messy hand grinders necessary! I have always been one to grind my weed for the perfect hit so this one has me giddy. It’s pocket sized and easy to use and is clearly the future of grinding weed.
— The Genius Pipe —
This one may be the most innovative pieces I’ve heard of. The Genius Pipe is the fastest cooling mini computer on the market and is designed to give you the perfect hit of weed.
“Hidden inside Genius is patented dimple design that creates millions of micro vortices with every breath. These vortices act as a super clever filter that cleans and cools smoke without water.”-(geniuspipe.com)
Basically, the pipe cools the hit down without the water that filters out most of the flavor. Whoever said that science wasn’t cool? This piece is held together by strong magnets making it easy to disassemble and clean as well. Need a genius lighter to go with your genius pipe? These lighters are crazy dope AND wind-proof!
— Pax 3 —
The Pax vaporizer is another micro-computer designed to give you a cough-free pull. This company has three models to choose from: Pax 3, Pax 2, and Pax Era.
The Pax 3 Vaporizer is a piece that isn’t restricted to just ground flower as it has an attachment for a concentrate insert! With a rechargeable battery and a ten year warranty, this is an incredibly useful tool. I’d say this is practically idiot proof considering it works almost exactly like a regular vape pen.
Fire is another major factor in our very hazy equation. The Plazmatic Lighters are probably something you’ve seen circulating Facebook and while this tool may not be the best to use with pipes and bongs- it is still pretty cool to use with joints and blunts. These lighters are wind proof, have a USB charger port and come in tons of designs. My favorite is definitely Pikachu with the poke-bong!
— The Stashtray —
This all in one device is a serious stoners dream. This StashTray kit includes a stainless steel and magnetic ashtray with a pipe spike, two strain containers, and magnets for holding your papers down. This company offers another kit that includes almost all of that plus a grinder, magnetic lighter case, microfiber cleaning cloth and a handmade box to store everything in. For those who consider rolling joints and blunts an art, this is perfect.
Now that cannabis is legal in certain states, it’s not surprising that we are seeing a boom in smoking-related technology. One can only assume the industry will see bigger and brighter things to come!
