The Complete Guide To Cleaning Your Cannabis Bongs, Pipes, Dab Rigs, And Vapes

Published

on

By


There’s nothing worse than taking a smooth hit only to be greeted by the taste of resin and dust. Not only does unkempt herb gear soil even the highest grade of flower, but it also stinks up your home and clothing. Avoid harsh hits and foul odors by sticking to a habit of cleaning all your favorite pieces.

Keeping your smoking accessories clean is an essential step in any seasoned stoner’s routine. Some smokers opt for rinsing out the rig after every session, while others commit to a thorough cleaning session every so often. Whichever practice you choose, cleaning your accessories involves a few essential tools and steps. Consider this complete guide to cleaning your cannabis gear.

How to clean a dab rig

Wax concentrates quickly build up in the intricate percolators of a dab rig. To loosen up the herbal gunk, you can use a few things. Start by bringing water to a boil and let it cool for a few minutes before adding it to the piece. Cover the nail space and mouthpiece with a paper towel or plastic wrap and shake roughly for a few minutes. Once the resin is dissolved, pour out the solution and wipe clean.

RELATED: A Beginner’s Guide To Buying A Dab Rig

If your rig requires a more heavy-duty method, swap out the hot water with room-temperature isopropyl alcohol. Add a bit of salt to exfoliate stubborn wax and shake until the rig is cleaned. By regularly cleaning your piece, you can keep hand-blown rigs like those from MJ Arsenal looking good as new.

How to clean vape pens

Glass pieces are best paired with liquid solutions and salt, but you should take a different cleaning approach when dealing with a vape pen. Instead, arm yourself with a trusty brush and get to work on the parts where gunk builds up. Take the pen apart into as many pieces as you can and focus on dusting each thoroughly. For challenging areas, dip a cotton swab in acetone and gently brush over it.

If you fail to implement cleaning rituals in your rotation, built-up gunk will leave your vaporizer working harder (not smarter) during your daily smoke sessions. In a worst-case scenario, a neglected vape pen will heighten your risk of inhaling harmful bacteria, sabotaging your high.

How to clean a pipe 

If you’re a cannabis circle frequenter, give your toking tool some much-needed TLC. To start, select your cleaning solution of choice or make a concoction of your own with rubbing alcohol, table salt, and dish soap. Once that step is complete, fill a reusable plastic bag with said solution, as this vessel will allow for total pipe submersion. If this pipe-friendly soaking bath pops your cleaning ritual bubble, try alternative methods.

Instead of a saline solution composed of Epsom salt and rubbing alcohol, get creative and opt for a salt and vinegar solution, a fizzing baking soda and vinegar combo, or the dynamic duo of sand and water. For best results, freeze your glass piece first, which will allow the resin to harden.

If a baking soda and vinegar bath proves to be a bust, stick with the old tried-and-true: boiling water. Once your water reaches its boiling point, let the piece soak for approximately 30 minutes before de-bathing. After a quick towel dry, your pipe will be ready for your next session.

But how often should you bathe your glass pipe? Surprisingly, experts recommend that heavy consumers cleanse their pipes once every one to two days. If regular salt and rubbing alcohol baths can’t squeeze into your tight schedule, cotton-swab touch-ups are a must. Otherwise, germs will cling to the stem, and a slimy biofilm can grow, spiking your risk of infection.

How to clean a bong 

Much like cleaning a pipe, isopropyl alcohol is a must-have ingredient for bong cleaning sessions. To set harmful bacteria up in flames, create a mixture of alcohol diluted with hot water. Then, pour the solution into the well-loved bong of your choice. For spotless results, ensure you shake up the grime-eradicating mixture. To do so, ball up a crumpled paper towel to seal the bowl joint and mouthpiece. If your DIY fix is translating to a subpar and spill-prone clean, invest in rubber caps for your bong. That way, you can shake up your cannabis gear maintenance routine—without turning your bathroom or kitchen into a makeshift splash pad.

Note that, in a pinch, vinegar and coarse salt is a viable substitute for rubbing alcohol. Whatever pre-smoke-session solution you choose, be sure to clean your bong at least once a week. Though, bong-cleaning welcomes a more-the-merrier approach. If you can’t make it a day without a trusty bong rip, aim to clean your bong once daily.

Why? For one, you’ll feel flower’s effects faster, and the hit will be worlds smoother. Besides heightening your highs, your clog-free bong will help you conserve bud—music to a seasoned smoker’s ears.

Use household items

Ditch the pricey cleaning solutions and use the goods lying around in your bathroom cabinet. Of course, isopropyl alcohol is a tried-and-true cleaning solution for glass. Pair the liquid with salt and leave it in your piece overnight for the best results.

To combat hard-water stains both inside and outside for piece, white vinegar is a powerful adversary. In terms of tools, you’d be surprised at how efficient cotton swabs and the average toothbrush work to remove the built-up resin. Gently twist them down stems and percolators to clean hard-to-reach stains.

Don’t forget the accessories

Make sure to spend some attention cleaning heavily used herbal accessories. Keep your trusty grinder in tip-top shape by disassembling and submerging each piece in boiling water. After a few minutes, remove them from heat and let sit for about thirty minutes. Once the grinder has dried, scrub with a toothbrush and leave to dry. Don’t forget about your smoking bag, which can quickly become cluttered with runaway herbal crumbs and dead lighters. Go through your kit every few months and reorganize the essentials.

Green and clean

Make the most out of your smoke session by maintaining a well-kept cannabis kit. Fortunately, with the right cleaning tools and solutions, cleaning your favorite pieces is quite simple.

Burb’s magnetic rolling tray

Your current rolling tray slays because of its sentimental value, but brands never cease coming out with unique ways to improve this utilitarian tool. Which is to say: it might be time for a new one. 

Burb, for example, has made its gold-coloured rolling tray magnetic, so you can pop it on the fridge after you’ve busted up your bud. It’s a subtle (but surprisingly convenient) benefit to being able to keep your tray within arm’s reach, but not have it take up valuable table real estate.

Summerland’s structural ceramic bong

There’s something so delightfully unexpected about an opaque ceramic bong. Summerland’s handmade bongs come in three sizes, including the Land Yacht (pictured here), its largest, equipped with a double chamber. This piece could easily be mistaken for a vase when on display. Each one is made by hand, so you’re truly getting a unique work of art.

Yew Yew’s cloud-shaped grinder

Grinders haven’t changed much over the decades, until now. Unique, statement-making designs now outshine the pot leaf-embellished metal grinders of the past. Yew Yew’s cloud grinders not only take on interesting shapes but come in a soft, silicone finish.

The device itself has three layers, including the top, which houses sharp teeth for a perfect grind, a second layer for the flower and a third chamber for collecting kief.

Friends NYC’s dice roll roach clips

Love the act of smoking a joint, but hate the stink fingers that come with it? Enter: adorable roach clips with dice-embellished tops. Are they 100% necessary? Absolutely not. Will they bring you joy every time you light up? Undoubtedly, yes. Dice clips are available in both red and black designs.

Ohai’s crystal stone pipe

Ohai has been making its colourful crystal pipes for years now, and they’ve set themselves up as an OG in space. These pipes feel comfortable in the hand and the smoke is smooth.

The celestial vibes are strong in the design, which offers a variety of crystal types, each associated with its own healing properties if you’re into that sort of thing. (And if not, the colours are nice to look at.)

Sackville & Co’s joint case keychain

If you know someone who insists on wrapping their pre-rolls in toilet paper and then makes their significant other carry said cocooned joint in their purse (read: the author of this story’s husband), this joint case will be life-changing.

The joint case is waterproof, airtight and made from durable metal with a screw top. It can fit a joint or most vape pens and it has a handy keychain loop on top, so you can attach it to your keys for easy access.

Honest’s colourful stash jars

Type A personalities will find it deeply satisfying to organize their stash in these colour-coordinating jars. Honest’s minimal capsules have durable, food-grade silicone lids that seal in the freshness while the jars themselves are crafted from thick, shatter-resistant borosilicate glass.

Tetra’s abstract art lighter

Sorry, Bic, there’s a new, cuter way to make fire. Tetra has created one of the most beautiful lighters on the market with bold colour-blocking patterns that decorate the polycarbonate casing.

These made-in-Japan lighters have a steel interior and a cotton wick that strikes a gorgeous flame every time. Fluid is unfortunately not included, but you can remedy that with a trip to your local corner store for Zippo-style lighter fluid.

Beyond the blunt: 8 BIPOC-owned accessories brands to shake up your sesh

Published

on

By


As a millennial, accepting my own cannabis use has been an interesting journey. First came the conversations with concerned family members. Then there was the issue of retraining my own brain to realize I was free to enjoy cannabis in 420-friendly cities and states across the US.

But even as I got more comfortable, I still noticed a pattern among myself and many of my other Black friends. Even with all the cool smoking accessories out there, we rarely smoked out of glass or smoke in any other ways than rolling up a blunt.

But can you blame us? For many Black people my age, picking up a bowl and lighter or a banger and torch can feel more dangerous than smoking the weed itself.

Why BIPOC may feel differently about accessories

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that many ’80s and ’90s babies feel uncomfortable owning pipes and bongs or dab rigs – especially if they are BIPOC. Growing up inundated with the D.A.R.E. agenda and having witnessed the impact of the crack epidemic has kept many people of color far away from anything that resembles a smoking accessory.

After all, the presence of paraphernalia can be a great excuse for the police to trump up their charges after catching someone with drugs. Plus, weed pipes don’t look that much different from crack pipes, which we were all taught to avoid at all costs.

But as the popularity of legal cannabis rises, I hope we’re moving towards a safer and less stressful time for weed smokers who want to smoke out of something more than a blunt wrap. And I think that if a person of color feels safe enough, they should dig into some of the amazing accessories that are out there.

The benefits of going beyond the blunt

The benefits of using smoking accessories are many, but if I had to name the top three, I would say: the hits are smoother, the bowls are way more cost-effective, and they make enjoying cannabis way more friendly for your lungs. 

I also love having the opportunity to support BIPOC businesses by investing in their pieces. Shopping with these businesses helps foster a sense of community and puts money in the pocket of BIPOC-business owners, which are both important to me.

If you feel similarly and you are ready to shake things up, here are some of the BIPOC accessory brands you can use to push your sesh beyond the blunt, whether you’re a POC or not.

Just The Tip

The holders look like art pieces and will undoubtedly spark conversation.

House of Puff is where fashion and smoking accessories meet. With colorful papers and pipes, House of Puff is all about creating chic looks while still enjoying your flower.

House of Puff wants you to “ditch the stigma with easy to use, art-inspired accessories.” What could be better than your weed matching your accessories? Nothing. The only answer is nothing. 


Peaxe Pipes

Let’s get a bit more sophisticated and retro in our design with Peaxe Pipes. Peaxe Pipes is upcycling antique glassware and repurposing them into bongs.

That’s right, that old piece of glassware at your granny’s house can be used to smoke weed. Now, you won’t have to hide your bong when company comes over; just put it up on the shelf, and everyone will just think you stepped up your home decor game.


Munisa Ceramica

Guava, papaya, grapefruit, oh my! I’ve seen a lot of cool bowls and pipes in my day, but Munisa Ceramica out of Los Angeles might be my favorite. Munisa features Mexican-inspired designs and ceramics that create a one-of-a-kind experience with your cannabis.

Elevate Jane is everything you want from a cannabis accessory company: functional, stylish, and robust in the options you pick to enjoy your next smoke.

From small beakers to bowls that look like bananas, you’ll definitely find the piece that fits your smoking needs. And, you can get something for less than $20 because we all love a good bargain. 


Ardent

Ok, so technically the Ardent is not a smoking accessory. It’s not a bowl, joint holder, or bong. But, if you’re looking to get away from smoking altogether, look no further. The Ardent sends your cannabis through a decarboxylation process that will allow your weed to be consumed how you want.

Smoke it, vaporize it, or even cook with favorite strains and see how much more elevated your high will become. 


Canna Luxe Co.

The phrase “lifestyle brand” gets thrown around very loosely nowadays. But the women that own Canna Luxe Co. have created a brand around beautiful designs and equity in the cannabis industry.

When you visit their website, you’ll find every type of accessory you could ever need. Plus, you can read about the challenges Black women face in the industry. Call it educating and elevating, in style.


Apothecarry

Apothecarry has created the ultimate stoner accessory: a humidor for weed smokers. Their luxurious original case features glass jars for your strains, a travel cigar tube, a removable rolling tray, and a lock to keep your weed safe. Founded by a mother, entrepreneur, and cannabis pro, Apothecarry thought about everything stoners need, just like every good mom (who knows you like to smoke a lot) does.

Did I mention the leather on the inside is vegan? Yes, they even thought about that, too. There’s not much about this case for anyone to feel bad about.


Are there more BIPOC accessories brands we should know about? Let us know on Twitter, and we’ll add them to our list.
