A smoking technique that involves rolling ground cannabis into a wrap. Blunts are larger than regular joints, allowing for a larger amount of marijuana to be rolled. This can result in a more potent smoking experience, delivering stronger effects. The larger size also makes them ideal for sharing.

When it comes to blunts, you have options when it comes to the wrap you select—and not all blunts are created equally. We encourage you to skip tobacco products that can potentially harm your health, and choose wraps made from hemp and herbal alternatives instead.

Blunts are known for their slow and even burn. Blunts tend to burn slower than traditional rolling papers, providing a longer-lasting smoking session.

A vaporizer, commonly known as a vape pen or vape device, is an electronic device used to heat cannabis or cannabis concentrates to a temperature that releases the active compounds as vapor. Unlike smoking, which involves combustion and produces smoke, vaporizers create inhalable vapor, for a healthier, cleaner and more discreet method of cannabis consumption.

How to use a vaporizer

Using a vaporizer may vary depending on the specific device, so it’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

A hand pipe, also known as a spoon pipe or a bowl, is a simple, discreet, and portable device that fits comfortably in one hand. It usually has a bowl for the cannabis, a carburetor (or carb) to control airflow, and a mouthpiece for inhalation.

Hand pipes are designed to hold a small amount of cannabis, which allows for controlled and precise dosing. Nice for everyone—great for people who are newer to marijuana.

Remember to clean your hand pipe regularly to remove potentially harmful resin and to maintain optimal performance and flavor. Pipe cleaners are great for removing residue and ash.

A water pipe consists of a chamber filled with water that cools and filters the smoke before inhalation, providing a smooth smoking experience. While filtering out unwanted elements, a water pipe preserves the natural flavors of the cannabis, allowing you to experience the full spectrum of tastes and aromas.

It’s important to note that water pipes often have larger chambers, allowing for bigger hits. This can be beneficial for experienced users or those seeking a more substantial and potent smoking experience.

Before we get into the delights of dabbing, we want to take a moment to let you know: this method is known to deliver a very potent experience with fast-acting effects. So, if you’re new to cannabis, make sure you know dabbing may not be a gentle intro.

Dabbing is for consuming cannabis concentrates (wax, shatter, or oil). It involves heating your concentrate and inhaling the resulting vapor.

How to do dabs

There are a few ways to dab. Some require a few steps and specific tools, and others are less complicated. Just remember, when it comes to concentrates, a little goes a loooong way, regardless of the tool you use. Talk with your Budtender about how each works and what to expect.
