Keep reading for a look at 10 of our favourite undervalued products.

1. Activated charcoal filters

Activated charcoal filters

Filter tips might all look fairly similar, but some definitely outperform others. Activated charcoal filter tips, like Zamnesia’s Activated Coconut Charcoal Filters, provide an extra-smooth and clean smoking experience.

Activated charcoal has been used in the manufacture of filter tips for close to 25 years. The charcoal used in these filters is processed at high temperatures to make it more porous. This increases the surface area for filtration, while the negative charge of the charcoal attracts and absorbs positively charged toxic chemicals found in smoke. If you're looking for the cleanest-possible smoking experience, activated charcoal filters are definitely the way to go.

2. Alcohol wipes

Alcohol wipes

Whether you're a weed grower, smoker, mushroom cultivator, or just a regular green thumb, you've simply got to keep a pack of alcohol wipes handy. At Zamnesia, each pack contains 100 individually sealed 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes that come in extremely handy when:

Whenever you want to rapidly clean and disinfect anything around your house, reach for some alcohol wipes to get the job done.

3. Pot markers

Pot markers

Producing a bountiful harvest is a lot simpler in a well-organised garden. And one of the easiest ways to organise your next grow—whether it’s cannabis, mushrooms, peppers, or any other plant for that matter—is to use pot markers. Zamnesia Pot Markers come in packs of 5 and are designed to stand up to the conditions in your grow tent/room or garden for quite some time.

Measuring 12cm × 4.5cm, each marker has enough space to write down not only the strain/type of plant you're growing, but also some extra information such as germination/sowing date, nutrient requirements, and more.

4. Nitrile gloves

Nitrile gloves

Powder-free nitrile gloves are a must-have for any cannabis grower or mycologist. In cannabis grows, gloves come in handy whenever you need to handle plants during training, and especially at harvest time to keep your hands from getting sticky with resin.

In a mushroom grow, on the other hand, nitrile gloves are essential for handling spore syringes and prints, grow kits, growing media, and any other growing equipment—given the importance of keeping your mushroom grow free of unwanted bacteria and pathogens.

Finally, nitrile gloves also come in handy around the house when cleaning or handling any sticky or possibly irritating substances. Plus, since they are latex-free, nitrile gloves are a great option for anyone with sensitive skin or a latex allergy.

5. Pipe cleaners

Pipe cleaners

Is there a more underrated product than the humble pipe cleaner? Of course, as their name suggests, pipe cleaners work wonders for cleaning the hard-to-reach nooks and crannies of your pipes, bongs, dab rigs, and other smoking devices. But they also have a plethora of other uses, including:

  • Cleaning/detailing your car, motorcycle, bicycle, bathroom, kitchen, etc. Think of any hard-to-reach area of your home, and a pipe cleaner can probably help you clean it!

  • Cleaning fragile electronics or other equipment, such as musical instruments, speakers, amplifiers, and more.

  • Tying up open food packages.

  • Tying back curtains or tying together cables and wires.

  • To make arts and crafts projects with kids.

Zamnesia Pipe Cleaners come in packs of 100pcs, measure 15cm each, and can be used for all of these uses and many more.

6. Calibration weights

Calibration weights

Every digital scale comes with a calibrate function, and it's there for a reason. To ensure an accurate measure, it's vital you regularly calibrate your scales using precise calibration weights.

Available in 1g, 5g, 10g, 20g, 100g, and 200g sizes, Zamnesia Calibration Weights are exactly what you need to keep your digital scale working at its best. And while they may not have many additional uses, calibration weights are essential for anyone who needs to rely on their scale. Plus, being made from 100% stainless steel, these weights are sure to last a lifetime.

7. Clipper universal lighter flints

Clipper universal lighter flints

There's no lighter quite like a Clipper. With its unmistakable design and high-quality components, the Clipper has become one of the world's most popular pocket lighters since its creation in 1972.

And one thing that has continued to uphold the longevity of the Clipper brand is its reusable design. With Clipper lighters, you can refill the gas chamber and replace both the spark wheel and flint. At Zamnesia, we stock original universal Clipper flints that fit every Clipper under the sun. Order your Clipper replacement flints today and keep yours working for years to come—or until one of your smoking buddies "accidentally" pockets it!

8. Empty gelatine capsules

Empty gelatine capsules

From mushroom microdoses to herbal remedies and CBD oil—the sky's the limit when it comes to using these simple, inexpensive gel caps. Free from preservatives or artificial additives, our gelatine capsules are made of 100% beef gelatine to both halal and kosher standards, and are available in 3 sizes:

Each pack of Zamnesia Gel Caps contains 100pcs and, together with an inexpensive capsule machine, opens you up to a world of homemade supplements that can boost your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

9. Silica gel

Silica gel

Silica gel packets are exceptional at absorbing moisture and controlling humidity. You'll usually find them inside the packaging of new shoes, clothing, electronics, and more. Now, with Zamnesia Silica Gel Packets, you can keep some packs on hand and use them to:

  • Control humidity when storing shrooms or cannabis seeds.

  • Control condensation by placing a few packs near your car windshield (or any window in your house with condensation problems).

  • Store metal tools and other equipment that may rust if exposed to moisture.

  • Control odours. Silica gel packs can help to control the growth of bacteria that create musky, foul odours in shoes, bathroom cabinets, laundry rooms, etc.

  • Storing and protecting photos and important documents.

10. Kleaner


Kleaner is an alcohol-based spray that contains a unique blend of herbal extracts that can be applied to the mouth and body to not only freshen up their aroma, but also interact with saliva-swab drug tests, especially those testing for THC and its metabolites. If you're a regular smoker, keeping a bottle of Kleaner around might just save you. While it cannot guarantee results, plenty of reviews endorse the success of this inexpensive, discreet product.
