If you are among the many people who plan on consuming cannabis in states where it is now legal, either for medicinal or recreational purposes, there are a few things you should keep in mind. This includes knowing what to bring with you if you plan on indulging while out and about, as well as items you will need for at-home use. Here is a list of some of the essentials.
Snacks and Water
One of the very first things that you are going to need to have with you if you plan on consuming cannabis would be snacks and water. If this is your first time-consuming cannabis or you don’t consume cannabis very often, then you might not be aware of the fact that you will get incredibly hungry whilst under the influence of cannabis.
More than this, and this doesn’t happen to everyone, but it certainly does happen to a lot of people, you are probably going to get very thirsty. It’s important not to get confused between being thirsty and having a cotton or a dry mouth.
Lighters and Torches
The next thing that you are going to need, which is going to make consuming cannabis possible, especially if you are using a consumption method that relies on combustion, would be lighters or torches.
If you are using a cannabis consumption method such as a joint or a bong, you are going to need a lighter to consume it. If, on the other hand, you are planning on using a dab rig, you are going to need to buy a torch. Using a lighter for a dab rig just won’t work since it won’t generate enough heat.
One thing that you might notice as you consume more and more cannabis or you begin consuming cannabis more frequently, is that you’ll have quite a bit of it laying around. In addition to this, sometimes you might not want to have to clean the cannabis consumption method that you are going to be using.
As such, one thing that you are going to need would be rolling paper in certain situations, rolling a joint is sometimes the best option, especially if you don’t feel like cleaning any device after you have finished consuming.
A Grinder or Scissors
Perhaps one of the most important things that you can ensure that you have with you if you are planning on consuming cannabis would be a grinder or a pair of scissors. Of course, this depends on your cannabis consumption method of choice. However, for the majority of the cannabis consumption methods that use actual dry herb, having a grinder or a pair of scissors is a life changer.
Have you ever tried to roll a joint with cannabis that has not been ground? If you’re wondering what it’s like, the short answer is terrible. Not only will the joint continue to self-extinguish as you are smoking it, but it’ll also look incredibly mishap.
A Travel Bag
If you consider yourself a regular consumer of cannabis, then one thing that you need to add to your collection would be a travel bag. Why might you need a travel bag, you may ask? What if you plan on consuming on the go or you are planning on visiting a friend?
A travel bag will add a world of convenience and will make it possible to easily travel on the go whilst consuming cannabis. You should ensure that the bag has ample space for a bag of cannabis, any rolled joints, cannabis vape juice, and more.
Eye Drops and Mints
Finally, the last few things that you’ll need if you are planning on consuming cannabis would be eye drops and mints. Even though the stigma around cannabis is slowly becoming less and less frequent, your friends and family still might not be on board. If this is the case, then one thing that you are going to need would be eye drops since your eyes might go red after consuming cannabis.
Whilst friends and family are one thing, you might also find that your place of employment also doesn’t allow anyone to consume cannabis. If you want to avoid suspicion, then in addition to using eye drops, you can use mints so that the potent smell of cannabis is not on your breath.
