7 underrated weed equipment for 2020
There are so many ways to get up and so many accessories to help you get it right. We all already know the wide variety of bongs, swab rigs, rolling papers and vape batteries available, but behind those usual suspects there are many forgotten gamers that should be in every stash.
Here are seven underrated smoking accessories that you should check out.
You won’t find a greater lawyer for the chillum than your boy Dante Jordan, aka Strain McMahon. In my opinion, they are the most underrated smoking device in the whole country. They allow you to smoke a whole bowl on the go, and they’ll get you super stoned with just a tiny pinch of weed.
Additionally, most pharmacies have a whole box behind the counter for $ 10 or $ 15 a pop. And most importantly, the reason they are underrated is that they are the best device you can buy when you travel and you have to token when you arrive.
If you speak from the experience of someone who always believes they have time to curl up and burn a whole stump on vacation, you won’t. You’re always on the go and if you’re the type who has to smoke flowers all day to survive the world, a chillum is the most portable, discreet, and time-efficient accessory you can buy.
If you’re a flower smoker and you roll blunts or joints, you should have some rolling tips on deck for you. They act as crutches and as a wall between Scooby snacks and your mouth. Sure, there are plenty of old business cards out there that you can tear up, but it’s time to grow up and shop for these super affordable accessories.
RAW has a variety of roll tips, and they cost a handful of couch coins. If you feel like it, there are plenty of glass rolling tips out there that REALLY improve your experience and are reusable.
Check out how to use them.

For the dull smokers out there: I know, I know – “Just use your thumbs!” And that’s fair, but here’s my question: what if the cigarillo is so stale that your thumbs bluntly turn the whole thing into tobacco flakes?
Splinter, that’s what. Slivers are small holes with a small blade inside that will cut open your blunts with great precision. Cop one.

Toker Poker are difficult for many reasons: they keep your BIC in an identifiable case (for the lighter thieves out there); You can wrap hemp wick around them to avoid smoking butane. The metal basket will help you pack weeds into your trays. And most importantly, the poker that goes down makes cleaning your one-hitters, pipes, bong bowls, etc., a quick and easy process.
A blue carburetor cap. (Leafly)
I’m not the greatest dabber, but I can tell you that hitting the quartz with a carburetor cap is worlds different compared to without it. With a carburetor cap, you can trap heat in your banger and absorb the last bit of oil there before it turns into molasses.
Without one, your oil will get too cold as you cough away from that first hit and you will have to burn it off again, which will undoubtedly burn some cannabinoids and terpenes and decrease your experience.
E-nails are one of the most underrated accessories in the game. An e-nail is a device that wraps around your banger and allows you to maintain a constant temperature for every hash you smoke.
With the different varieties of hash oil and how they all hit best at different temperatures, e-nails remove the daunting manual process of burning your bang and using a microwave timer to know when it’s time to get high will.
Terp pearls. (Grant Hindsley for Leafly)
My boy the Avid Dabber recently put me on terp pearls. I have to say the swabbing experience with them, similar to a carburetor cap, is just a lot better.
Terp beads, also called swab beads, are those tiny quartz balls that enter your banger to increase airflow and evaporation. If you hit your rig hard enough, the balls will spin around and allow you to get the most out of your blobs.
Clipper lighter. (Courtesy Clipper)
In my opinion, clippers are the best lighters in the game. To me they work well in the wind, I love that you can refill them and most importantly, the poker in the middle. Poker is the reason these lighters are so underrated because without the right packaging the weeds in your joint will burn so horribly that your session will end in seconds. Plus, the cherry on top: clippers are usually cheaper than BICs and Zippos.
