Is your smoking kit up to snuff, so to speak? Every stoner has his or her own list of essentials—the indispensable accouterments that add to every at-home session and make smoking on the go a breeze.
Chances are, you have at least one or two of these savvy stoner essentials in your smoking kit already, but we can almost guarantee that you don’t have all of them. These are—without question—the 10 must-have cannabis and hemp flower smoking companions that we rely on day-to-day, including a smell-proof stash box, rice rolling papers, a grinder card, a sleek one-hitter, and more.
Give your smoking kit a complete makeover, add a missing piece to your pot-smoking puzzle, or just dive in to get a feel for some of the best stoner accessories on the market right now with our guide below.
Black Rock One-Hitter
Some things don’t change. How does the saying go… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Quick and simple, the unbreakable one-hitter is still a smoker’s staple, despite the current boom of cannabis technology.
A well-packed one-hitter still delivers a resounding wallop of smoke, making it a preferred method for skiers, hikers, skateboarders, and other outdoor enthusiasts, and on-the-go herb aficionados in general. And please, whatever you do, don’t opt for the one hitter that’s painted like a cigarette—you’re seriously not fooling anyone.
Are dab rigs and the associated blowtorch just not your vibe? Look to VapeXhale—the undisputed glass monarch of the vaporizer kingdom. The EVO vaporizer was developed from an amalgamation of science experiments, years of research and development, and input from hundreds of dedicated stoners via weed forums.
The resulting product is a vaporizer that combines the health benefits of vaping with the pound-for-pound knockout abilities of a water pipe. Whether you’re looking to dab a cannabis or CBD concentrate like 99% CBD Isolate or vape your favorite bud or hemp flower, the EVO’s ultra-effective, glass-encapsulated heating element delivers hard-hitting, dense, delicious vapor in every hit.
Bulky coffee table grinders aren’t exactly inconspicuous—and oftentimes you don’t want to break your back bringing one with you when you’re traveling. A grinder card can slide into your wallet like a credit card, although we recommend stashing it in its designated pocket in the Safety Case. Whip out the grinder card in a pinch, and, like a compact version of your kitchen grater or zester, you’ll be looking at a small pile of finely ground herbs in no time at all. Perfect for rolling joints or packing a vape pen on the run, a grinder card combines utility and portability perfectly.
OK— we’re going to say it: glass blunts are absolutely underrated. Sure, we’re fans of a good old-fashioned Swisher Sweet every once and a while (I’m partial to grape or original, but the new flavors like blueberry are a fun departure from the expected), but the wide chamber of a glass blunt can be easily packed with 1.5 grams of flower and smoked down to the tube.
Not only does a glass blunt have a high capacity, if you’re truly sampling some high-grade, but there’s also no reason to introduce conflicting flavors in the form of an artificially-flavored blunt wrap. Instead, go with this heavy-hitting alternative that—if you’re burning blunts regularly—will save you both trees and trips to the gas station for Phillies.
Nothing gives away a stoner like a mutilated business card. For the infrequent smoker, going Hannibal Lecter on a movie ticket or tearing off a corner of a pack of gum is a fair enough move, and very in-keeping with the resourceful stoner spirit.
However, if joints are your preferred method of smoking, snagging some rolling tips is a power move. A smooth, round filter (or crutch) will help create smother rolls and prevent that dreaded sogginess that comes with a round or two of passing a paper joint.
Of course, you could always roll a joint without a filter—just don’t expect your friends to want to suck on that soggy, bedraggled excuse for a cone after a couple rotations.
Grasshopper Vape Pen
If James Bond were to soothe his muscles with a little CBD after a day of derailing an international crime syndicate, this is the vaporizer he’d rely on. MI-6 didn’t have anything to do with this ingenious gadget, although it was developed by aerospace engineers.
This literal vape “pen” performs admirably with flower and is a perfect addition to any smoking kit—especially if discretion is of the utmost concern. A gorgeously designed little chameleon that mimics an expensive pen, the Grasshopper camouflages right in at the office.
Rice Rolling Papers
Wood papers? No, thanks! Why buy high-quality flower if you’re going to skimp on paper? Hemp is a decent middle-ground, but rice paper burns slower and cleaner. Rice rolling papers are a bit trickier to roll at first because they’re so thin, but eventually, you’ll get used to them. As an added bonus, that learning curve will only amplify your rolling skills.
Call it a poker, call it a dabber, call it whatever you want—just don’t call it unnecessary. The Tool is the stoner’s Swiss Army Knife, and it can be employed in a million ways. Use it to break up oil, take dabs, pack joints, clean your one-hitter, load your vape pen, etc.
The spoon-shaped tip makes for an effective scooper, while the handle can serve as a poker or more agile scraper for small spaces. Whatever your preferred method of smoking, having a Tool in your kit will make many a toker’s task even easier.
No one wants to see an ashtray overflowing with old roaches. Moroccan ashtrays add a touch of classiness to the smoker’s coffee table. They look like a curved, ornately painted honeypots, but with ridged edges to hold still-smoking joints and an open cavity to stash the remnants of past sessions.
Black Rock Smell Proof Storage
Not every smoker is a stereotype—so why smoke like one? For the active professional on the hunt for a sleek, discreet, and simple smoking kit, there is truly no better investment. The smell-proof Safety Case has an inconspicuous yet sleek outer aesthetic—and on the inside, a customizable stash compartment perfect for organizing your vape pen, joints, pipes, blunts, oils, flower, papers, and more.

Bonus: Hemp Flower for Symptom Relief with CBD
You’ve likely seen many different CBD concentrates on the market, but did you know you can smoke or vape raw, organic hemp flower for fast-acting, full-spectrum doses of CBD?
We like the organic, non-GMO, sustainably grown, independently tested, federally legal hemp flower strains by Canna Comforts. Each of their diverse varietals looks, smells, tastes, and smokes just like the top-shelf cannabis strain that inspired it. We enjoy a joint or bowl of Lifter (topped off with a bit of Elektra Kief (shown in image below) for extra symptom relief), but their diverse array of strains ensures the right cannabinoid profile for any purpose and any patient.
