The first time you take a joint in your hands and taste the sweet, seductive flavours of decent weed, the world seems to make much more sense. However, it doesn't take long to realise that a few papers and some marijuana are just the tip of the iceberg.

If you want to truly elevate your mind and body, you need our selection of essential smoking accessories. Not only will they provide some fantastic quality of life improvements, they will generally improve your smoking experience tenfold. Even better, many of them are small enough to be stored in your pocket or a small bag.



For those who favour quality over quantity, here are six smoking accessories you should never be without.


Before even thinking about fancy gadgets, any self-respecting stoner needs to master the basics. That means rolling tightly packed joints (that don’t resemble a knobbly twig) and using a filter. The latter is an oft-overlooked aspect of a joint. Not only is a filter going to make those draws even sweeter, but it makes your weed go further and prevents any nasty plant matter from being inhaled.

Although a good craftsman never blames his tools, having decent gear to begin with will vastly help your rolling skills. Pick rolling papers and tips that have been designed explicitly with joint-making in mind. Then, all you need to do is practise rolling those cannabis leaf filters—good luck!

I know we said any self-respecting stoner needs to know how to roll, but sometimes our hands only work in certain ways. While your fingers may be talented at a lot of other things, many of us lack the dexterity needed to create a perfectly cylindrical joint. That doesn’t mean your dreams of euphoric bliss are over—you just need a rolling machine.

The idea is simple—papers and weed go in, and perfectly rolled joints come out. Rolling machines come in a variety of guises, so pick the one that suits your needs best. Many of them are small enough to fit in your pocket, so you needn't worry about being without while out and about.



Where possible, always choose a metal grinder over a plastic one. Plastic grinders will still do the job, but those made from metal are superior in nearly every way. They tend to last longer, won’t retain any smells or residue, are easier to clean, and of course, they look cooler.

If you are feeling really baller, try to go for a three chamber metal grinder. These have an additional compartment and a screen that captures kief as you grind your bud. Nothing is wasted, and you can use the kief to create a more potent joint.

As the name implies, one hitters give you just that—one hit! Imagine a pipe shrunk down to roughly the size of a joint. In most cases, that is what a one hitter will look like. They are another means of circumventing the need to roll, and if you don't like inhaling lit rolling papers, are the ideal choice.

One hitters are durable, can be loaded on the move, and will keep your weed safe until it’s needed. The only gripe some users have is if they want to go for a longer session, reloading your one hitter chillum can be a pain. If you love to take a few hits first thing in the morning or late at night, a one hitter is essential.

The benefit of a stash box is twofold. Not only do they keep your prized marijuana from prying eyes, but most stash boxes will also keep your buds fresh. Whenever you are browsing stash boxes, always keep one mantra in mind—quality weed needs a quality stash box.

Don’t skimp on a stash box and you will reap the rewards further down the line. Your weed will retain its dankness, no matter how far you need to travel with it. Plus, even if your stash box falls out of your bag, most are designed to look like ordinary pill pots or medication containers. A must-buy, if only to preserve your peace of mind.

It is an all too common occurrence. You have carefully balanced all of the components needed to roll a joint before a rogue gust of wind (or a cumbersome friend) sends all of your prized possessions flying. Filters have rolled away, never to be found again, and your treasured weed is in a heap on the floor.

If you can relate to this scenario, then you need a rolling tray. Keep your papers, weed, and filter tips safe and secure with a carefully designed rolling tray. Premium options will include an area to roll and separate storage sections for papers or filters.
