Smoking necessities?

Here’s a supposed list of 9 smoking necessities! Most of them are silly nonsense, it’s just a listicle, but it’s worthwhile to highlight one thing in particular: a grinder!


A grinder is definitely a go-to stoner tool because it makes for easier, quicker smoking. You place your bud in the top of the grinder – the lid and the bottom of the top chamber have teeth and this is what grinds up the weed – put the lid back on. In just a quick few seconds of grinding, you have perfectly ground-up cannabis that can be used to roll a blunt or a joint, or pack a bowl of fresh greens.

There are metal grinders that are magnetic so you don’t actually have to screw the lid on, and you can twist the lid both ways to grind up the buds. Most of the better metal grinders have 3 units; the top part grinds the bud, the middle section stores the ground greens, and in the bottom, a screen catches and collects kief that falls from the buds when it gets ground up.

One of the few pieces of specialized weed equipment that I wholeheartedly endorse. I don’t know how I smoked weed before I had one.
