Being able to pick and choose through different weed pipe shapes, sizes, and colors allows you to personalize your smoking device to your liking. The main thing to remember before you purchase is to pick a pipe that’s compatible with the form of cannabis you’re using. Stick with spoons, chillums, bongs, and bubblers if you’re smoking flower, and go for dab rigs if you prefer concentrates.

When it comes to buying cannabis flower at the dispensary, indica effects won’t tell you everything about the strain (remember cannabinoids and terpenes). The market is full of generalizations, but science is catching up to the demand, providing cannabis consumers with a more trusted approach to buying strains for anxiety, sleep, and pain relief. Shop wisely and smoke freely, friends! 
Whether you decide to keep it old-school with a wood chillum or go for a more techy metal pipe, you can enjoy the benefits of microdosing small quantities of cannabis. Chillums are very affordable, so if one material doesn’t work you can pick up another without too much of a financial loss. When buying pipes online, prioritize brands that offer a warranty (like us!).

Glass pipes and glass chillums are often one of the first pieces novice cannabis consumers buy. They’re easier than joints or dab rigs, plus the smoke hits just right when you figure out your tolerance. Think about how often you smoke and if you want to take your glass piece outside of the house as you shop. For example, if you want just a taste or a small hit to take the edge off, a glass one hitter may be a better investment than a bubbler. These factors can help you narrow down your selection.

A one hitter dugout makes packing up and storing cannabis easier. They’re a popular accessory item and people can choose from different colors, materials, and sizes. Keep your lifestyle and cannabis needs in mind as you search around for your favorite. 
You don’t need a fancy DIY weed kit to enjoy cannabis, but having the essentials guarantees a more enjoyable experience. As a reminder, most of the introductory tools and accessories listed above are best enjoyed with flower. Vaporizers and dab rigs use some of the same items, but these combo weed kits include device-specific odds and ends. Remember that you can always ask your local dispensary budtender or headshop for additional advice for how to get a complete kit.
Picking out a vapor battery is one of the easier decisions you’ll make as a new vaper. Most cartridges, whether they’re compatible with dry herb, oil, or concentrates, fit with 510-thread batteries (an industry standard). After that, it’s essentially a question of choosing a battery type. Automatic batteries may be quicker to use, but manual batteries offer more in the way of customization. The choice is yours. 
There’s a lot of rumors circulating around the cannabis community about the effects of sativa, hybrid, and indica strains. Considering the stoner movie clichés and inconsistent budtender advice, it’s no wonder people are confused. Read more and educate yourself on the truth.
