Post by Erinn Holman on June 19, 2019Erinn Holman
Ah, the smell of summer is finally in the air! The sweet taste of freedom is so close that you can almost taste it. If all you can think about is what your summer plans are after you finish finals week, then we’re here to help. Whether you are taking a trip to the beach, undertaking an epic backpacking adventure, or are heading back to your hometown, we are answering your most frequently asked questions and suggesting the best smoking supplies to jump-start an awesome summer vacation.
What is the best pipe to bring camping?
So you packed your tent, canteen, and sleeping bag, but what about your smoking kit? Use this opportunity to pare down your smoking gear to just the essentials. You’ll need a pipe that is durable and shatterproof since we all know how rough and tumble camping can get.
Great for camping
To be used with herbs
The Top Puff lets you and your camping buddies enjoy a shatterproof water pipe out in nature. The Top Puff comes apart and is easy to pack, making it perfect for backpacking trips. Smokers may be wary of what to bring during a camping trip if they’ve become accustomed to a fancy glass water pipe, or have a favorite glass piece. Don’t fret, you can find quality break-proof pipes and smoking alternatives that will fit your needs perfectly.
Price: $ 37
Silicone spoon pipe
If you and your buddies have a little more eclectic tastes and prefer variety, then the Camper’s Day Out bundle might be the way to go. Featuring the beloved Top Puff, plus camping inspired flavored papers, hemp wick, a wind resistant lighter, a Medtainer grinder that doubles as a dry herb travel container, a silicone spoon pipe, plus a few extra goodies. This bundle has something for every type of smoker: the water pipe enthusiast will be satisfied with the Top Puff, the roll-your-own smoker will be happy with the marshmallow, chocolate, and cookies papers to make a s’more roll, and the silicone spoon pipe that even your clumsiest friend won’t break.
Tips for the outdoorsy smoker:
- To save space, pack your smoking kit in your sleeping bag. This will keep your stash hidden and safe, plus throw off a Nosy Nancy.
- Do not bring glass pipes. It’s never fun dealing with broken glass, especially on vacation.
- Always bring an extra lighter. Maybe even three lighters. Having to dig in your stuff and look for a lighter when you’re miles away from civilization is not ideal, so pack accordingly.
- Only YOU can prevent forest fires, so please make sure you fully extinguish your campfire and all smoking items before you discard them (and dispose of them in the proper receptacles).
What is the easiest way to smoke on the beach?
Perfect for a day at the beach or the lake
For those who prefer to smoke herbs
Lighter holder plus pipe
Smoking at the beach can be tricky, everything is out in the open where everyone can see everything. There’s nowhere to sneak off to and take a few puffs, so you need a contraption that is discreet and easy to use. The EZ Pipe is a nifty smoking gadget that allows you to take a hit or two and save the remainder of the bowl for a later smoke sesh.
Pro Tip: Bring a beach umbrella to help shield you from the wind. This will give you a reprieve from the wind and make lighting your bowl easier plus give you some privacy.
What is the best herbal grinder to use while traveling?
Great grinder for traveling with your preferred smoking herbs
Want a convenient way to store your dry herbs and grind them once you get to your destination? If you’re an avid traveler and smoker, then the Medtainer grinder is for you. This three-piece contraption includes a childproof lid, a removable inner tube that stores the dry herbs, and the outer tube with sharp plastic teeth. Added bonus: this convenient travel grinder looks similar to a pill bottle and won’t draw unwanted attention to your smoking stash.
If you’re in a pinch and don’t have a grinder, you can always come up with a plan B and take the DIY route instead. Find a pill bottle, a clean coin, and your preferred herbs. Pack your herbs of choice tightly into the pill bottle, add the coin, put on the pill bottle lid, then start shaking! This method will take some time and arm strength but will do the trick when you’re in a pinch.
What is the easiest way to smoke in public?
Planning on going to a festival, outdoor concert, or public event that you’d like to smoke at? Lighting up a fat pre-roll isn’t always an option, so instead try out a vaporizer battery.
Cartridge: Ccell Palm Battery
Great vaporizer battery
For discreet cartridge smoking
We prefer the Ccell Palm Vaporizer Battery due to its discreet size, rechargeability, and effectiveness. Most cartridges fit this battery that features a magnetic base and a USB port for charging. At this price, the Ccell Palm Vaporizer Battery cannot be beat. Make sure your battery is charged up before the event and you’ll have hours of smoking in the palm of your hand.
Dry herb: Xvape Avant Vaporizer
Small and portable
If you’re not a cartridge smoker and prefer dry herbs, you’ll want to try out the Xvape Avant Vaporizer. This herbal vape boasts five temperature settings, a USB cable for recharging, ceramic chamber, plus a magnetic closure. This type of vaporizer will eliminate a smell, which you should be careful if you’re in a small, enclosed space. If you’re a smoking connoisseur and enjoy the taste of dry herbs, this is the right vape for you.
What is the best way to make infused butter?
Two words: summertime parties. You’re sure to be a hit at the summer kickoff pool party when you show up with infused treats. The MagicalButter Herbal Infuser makes whipping up baked goods a breeze! Step by step directions and recipes included, this kit has everything you need.
Need a good recipe to use after you’ve made some herbally infused butter? We’ve got you covered.
Once you’ve made your infused butter with the MagicalButter Herbal Infuser, follow these simple steps to make an out of this world batch of brownies:
- 2 cups of sugar
