Smoking or vaping cannabis is super easy with the right marijuana paraphernalia. Sure, you can use an apple and a lighter to smoke your marijuana, but there is much more effective drug paraphernalia that makes consuming marijuana simpler and better for you.

Here, we present you with the essential marijuana paraphernalia you need to smoke, vape, or dab your buds. From marijuana pipes to vape pens to bongs and much more, this comprehensive list of marijuana paraphernalia features everything you need.

Top Marijuana Paraphernalia

1. Pipe

Marijuana pipes are small smoking utensils available in various types, including one-hitters, bubblers, steamrollers, chillums, and more. Each has a unique look and function. The most common are hand pipes, also called spoons, which sit comfortably in the palm of your hand and feature a bowl where marijuana flower is packed.

The user covers the carb on the side of the pipe and approaches the tip of the lighter flame to a corner of the packed bowl. The smoke travels through the hole at the bottom of the bowl and the chamber toward the mouthpiece, ready to be inhaled.

2. Bong

Glass Bong

A cannabis bong, also known as a water pipe, works similarly to a pipe. The bong has a bowl where you can pack cannabis.

When the flower is lit, and the smoke is inhaled through the mouthpiece, the smoke travels down the downstem through the water and vertically up the primary chamber for inhalation. Bongs help filter the smoke with water.

3. Bubbler

A bubbler’s function and look fall somewhere between a traditional spoon pipe and a bong. Essentially, it is a smaller version of a water pipe, featuring a water chamber to filter the cannabis smoke.

However, this device is a single-part device compared to the multi-part bong, which has a detachable bowl piece. A bubbler features a carb like a spoon pipe.

4. Hookah

A hookah is a type of water pipe with one or multiple stems used to heat or vaporize and smoke tobacco, cannabis, hash, and opium. Instead of lighting the material with a lighter, hookahs use hot coals placed above the material. Users can inhale from a hose with a mouthpiece, moving the coals' heat through the bowl.

5. One-Hitter

A one-hitter pipe is a tiny smoking device used to smoke one hit of marijuana. At one end of the cylindrical device is the small bowl to pack a tiny bit of weed, and the other is the mouthpiece.

6. Pipe Screen

A pipe screen is a small screen, usually made of stainless steel, that can filter the plant material from reaching your lungs or making your pipe messy. These are perfect to use with finer cannabis material that can easily pass through the pipe hole.

7. Smoke Filter

A cannabis smoke filter uses activated carbon to filter out contaminants from your smoke or vapor.

Products like the MouthPeace filters remove tar and resin from your experience while allowing the cannabinoids and terpenes to pass through.

The result is cleaner and smoother tasting marijuana hits. Plus, smoke filters can work as sanitary devices to prevent the spread of bacteria.

8. Storage Container

An appropriately-sized, airtight, and UV-protected storage container is essential to preserving the quality of your flower or concentrates. Storage containers can be made of steel, glass, plastic, and silicone. In a commercial setting, storage containers are used to cure the flower buds to remove excess moisture and stale air.

9. Lighter

The friction between the flint and steel create a spark that ignites the butane and create a flame to light your marijuana.

10. Ashtray

An ashtray is a small receptacle used to collect the ash and joint roaches. Ashtrays are usually made out of heat-resistant glass. It can also be made out of plastic, metal, stone, and other materials. They help keep your marijuana experience clean and tidy.

11. Rolling Papers

Marijuana rolling papers are thin papers made out of different materials such as wood pulp, hemp, flax, and rice. Rolling papers come in various sizes, including 1 ¼, 1 ½, wide, and king sizes for extra-large joints.

12. Joint Filter Tips

Joint filter tips, also known as crutches, are used to keep plant material out of your mouth, reduce the amount of tar that reaches your lungs, make for a smoother hit, and add structure to your rolled joint, allowing you to smoke to the tip.

13. Blunt Wrap

Blunt wraps are usually made of tobacco and can be flavored to enhance the experience. The blunt wrap can contain nicotine and produces a smokier experience due to the burning of the wrap. The thicker outer and thinner inner leaves provide structural support and an excellent burn rate.

14. Grinder

A cannabis grinder is a critical component of any smokeware collection. It is a small grinding device with a top and bottom chamber. A grinder features sharp teeth that break apart nugs for use in bowls or joints. Three-piece grinders can contain a bottom compartment to collect the fallen kief.

15. Rolling Machine

A joint roller or joint rolling machine is an easy-to-use device that can make loading a joint much easier and faster. It can be good for beginners to get a uniform roll. You may need different rolling machines for different sizes of joints.

16. Rolling Tray

A rolling tray is a flat surface with raised edges to keep the fallen marijuana contained in a single space. Rolling trays come in various sizes and can feature additional compartments to hold your joints and other smoking accessories.

17. Roach Clip

A roach clip is a tool usually made out of metal that looks like tweezers and holds the end of a cannabis joint or roach. Roach clips prevent users from burning their fingers or lips and allow them to consume the entire joint.

18. Vaporizer

A vaporizer is a device that uses heat to vaporize marijuana flower or concentrate. Vaporizers come in desktop or handheld versions. Generally, vaporizers handle a dry herb or concentrate, while some can handle both products.

19. Vape Pen

A cannabis vape pen is similar to a portable vaporizer. It features a battery and cartridge combination. The cartridge is usually pre-filled with a cannabis concentrate and thinning agents for easier vaporization. The atomizer is the heating unit that vaporizes the oil. Some vape pens are disposable.

20. Dab Rig/E-Nail

A dab rig is a water pipe designed for vaporizing concentrates. A dab rig filters its vapor through the water like a water pipe. It features a dab rig nail that is heated and the vapor moves through the nail, down through the water and the chamber, and inhaled through the mouthpiece.

An e-nail is a device that can remove the need for a dab torch. E-nails or e-rigs maintain a consistent temperature through the manipulation of a controller box. This allows you to heat the nail to a specific temperature without guesswork.

21. Dab Torch

A dab torch is a tool containing propane or butane to produce a continuous flame that can be used to heat the dab rig nail. Dab torches come in various sizes.

22. Dabber

A dabber is a long and pointy handheld tool used to load cannabis concentrates onto a hot dab nail. Dabbers come with various ends to handle the different consistencies of cannabis concentrates, including crumble, badder, shatter, and live resin.

23. Terp Pearls

Terp pearls are dab rig essentials that are small glass balls that go inside your dab rig nail. When inhaling, your terp pearls will spin around the bottom of the nail and evenly spread the concentrate for better surface distribution and heating.

24. Quartz Inserts

Quartz inserts are small glass dishes, smaller than the dab rig nail. These are used to keep your dab nail clean and provide a separate surface area where you can use lower temperatures to heat your concentrate.

25. Smell-Proof Bag

Smell-proof bags come in different shapes, sizes, colors and qualities. They help carry and store your cannabis supplies when you are on the go without releasing too much or any of its marijuana smell. Some have compartments for all your paraphernalia, such as vape pens, vaporizers, rolling papers, lighters, and more.

26. Hemp Wick

Hemp wick is hemp twine coated in beeswax that is used to light cannabis instead of directly applying the lighter flame. Hemp wicks burn slowly like a candlewick and prevent you from inhaling any butane and help light your cannabis at a lower temperature than with a lighter.

27. Carb Cap

A carb cap is used on a dab rig to better heat the concentrate. One end has a handle to place the carb cap over the heated dab nail. This restricts airflow and allows you to heat the dab at much lower temperatures.
