If there's one thing that I enjoy doing when I'm not writing, it's smoking weed while having a drink. As a CBD oil lover and a typical herb smoker, I take pride in giving every kind of herbal intake a try — and I like to do it in style.
From what I've seen, investing in weed gadgets can drastically increase the amount of enjoyment you get while you're partaking in your favorite strain of cannabis. Here are some of the coolest picks I've seen on the net, and why you'll love using them during your next smoke session...
Magical Butter Machine by Magical Butter
If there's one thing that most epic marijuana recipes will require, it's either Cannabutter or cannabis-infused oil. This Magical Butter Machine allows you to make your own Cannabutter in a pinch, which in turn means that cooking with Mary Jane just got a whole lot easier.
Burnie Brownies, Marijuana Meatballs, and all sorts of goodies are now within reach — even if you're a terrible canna-cook! For fans of edibles, this is one of the best and easiest-to-use weed gadgets to add to your kitchen. That's pretty magical, if you ask me.
Pax 3 Vaporizer by Pax
The Pax 3 is considered to be one of the best vaporizers in the world, and has become the gold standard for just about all weed gadgets related to smoking. Along with being incredibly stylish and portable, the Pax 3 comes with a powerful heating element that releases a powerful-but-clean punch of THC with every inhale.
This rechargeable vaporizer allows you 8 to 10 smoke sessions per charge, is Bluetooth-enabled for a customizable inhale, and also comes with an impressive 10 year warranty. Better still, it works with dried herbs and concentrate.
Cone Filling Machine by RAW Natural
Love to roll a joint? Well, some just can't do it that well. That's why this Cone Filling Machine is one of the better weed gadgets out there for those who want a well-rolled spliff without having to learn how to roll a joint that doesn't fall apart.
This machine allows you to pack your pre-rolled cones perfectly, and works great with RAW Natural rolling papers. It's also king sized, so you can share a single joint with friends, with plenty to spare.
Admittedly, this isn't a gadget, per se, but it turns your phone into one of the best weed gadgets for growers. GrowBuddy's all about helping cannabis cultivators grow the best pot plants they can.
This app will tell you everything you need to optimize your cannabis growing, even down to nutrition and lighting. Chart your plant's growth, check out the nutrients they're getting, and harvest the rewards — literally!
PenSimple Herb Grinder by PenSimple
This grinder is one of the most discrete weed gadgets on the market. Just the same shape and size as a standard pen, the PenSimple is a quality manual herb grinder that stores your goods, and unloads them through a simple "pen-style" hole, when you decide it's time to smoke.
Limited air exposure means your herb will stay fresher, longer. A pen-like dispenser means that filling blunts and cones have never been easier. Plus, a removable grinder means you can switch it to a full storage piece that holds up to an eighth of weed. What's not to like?
Hard Shell Storage by Kush Kaddie
One of the best weed gadgets you can buy is also one of the most basic. Simply put, storing your smoking supplies out in the open is a bad idea. Heck, even storing your cannabis goods in a place where the wrong person can get a whiff is a bad idea.
Even in areas where medical marijuana is legal, you can still get arrested for possession. That's why a hard-shelled, vacuum-sealed, padded container is often the best place to store your goodies. That's why Kush Kaddie's storage containers are a great investment, and why every stoner should have one.
Scent-Proof Bags by Smelly Proof
Some people just can't deal with the hard-shell cases — and that's okay. One of the other classic weed gadgets you can buy is a scent-proof bag, such as the ones offered by Smelly Proof. It's worth noting these bags will not fool dogs, but they will fool most other people.
A single extra large bag can hold more than enough weed for an entire month. So, if you're looking for a cheap way to scent-proof your goods, this is a good way to do it.
Folding Hookah by HyMaqi
Yes, this is exactly what you think it is — and what you never thought would be possible. This silicone hookah is one of the only weed gadgets of its kind. It's one of the first foldable, travel-safe hookahs we've ever seen.
Smoke it just like you would a normal bong, then once you're done, rinse it out, roll it up, and tuck it into your bag. It's incredibly easy to clean and is made out of safe, high-quality silicone. If you love to smoke on the go, this is a great way to do it.
Formula 420 by Formula 420
With all the weed gadgets that involve smoking, toking, and butter-making on this list, you're going to need something to clean your equipment. Sure, most soaps will work well, but not many will work as well as Formula 420 — a soap specifically made to wash away residue.
If you're looking for a cleaner smoke, then rinsing your gear with Formula 420 is a good life decision. Yes, it's an old product; but it's had staying power all these years because it works. Glass pipes, in particular, take well to this.
LighterBro Pro Lighter Sleeve by LighterBro
Lastly, one of the coolest weed gadgets we've seen isn't really a weed gadget at all — it's a lighter sleeve! This unique lighter sleeve turns an average Bic lighter into a Swiss Army knife-style utility item. Rolling a blunt, packing a pipe, and also opening your next beer can all be done via the tools used in a LighterBro sleeve.
Having a LighterBro makes partying it up easier than ever; and it's dirt cheap to buy. Christmas gift, anyone?
