When it comes to cannabis, it often seems like bigger is better. Cannabis enthusiasts are often encouraged to pack robust, hearty bowls or roll joints that are bursting at the seams. However, there is ample reason for consumers to experiment with other, less intense forms of cannabis intake. For those looking for a more subdued method of dosing with cannabis, the trustworthy one-hitter may offer just the recourse needed to relax without an overbearing high.
What is a Cannabis One-Hitter?
Cannabis one-hitters are similar to pipes and bongs in that they only require ground flower and a lighter to operate. However, one-hitters take the simplicity of the pipe to the next level, as one-hitters do not feature a carb or any other vent for airflow within their design. One-hitters operate similarly to cigarettes and are commonly advertised as such at smoke shops, where they are commonly available for sale.
One-hitters come in a variety of sizes and forms. While the basic design of the one-hitter will always be the same, the amount of flower that can be packed in a one-hitter is dependent on the size of its “bowl”. If you are someone interested in experimenting with low doses of cannabis, one-hitters can provide the most convenient and reliable means of lessening your cannabis intake.
How to Use a Cannabis One-Hitter
Using a cannabis one-hitter is exceedingly easy. Cannabis one-hitters are often shaped like a metal cigarette, though some one-hitters are crafted using plastic or glass. Ground cannabis is packed into the bowl at one end of the cylinder and smoked from the opposite end, a process that is likely the most intuitive of all cannabis dosing methods.
Packing your one-hitter also requires little effort. Simply press the bowl of the one hitter into your pile of ground flower and press softly. The bowl should be filled with cannabis, and not packed so tightly as to prevent much-needed airflow. For the best results, the ideal technique involves lightly twisting the one-hitter into your cannabis pile until you have achieved your optimal amount of flower.
Benefits of a Cannabis One-Hitter
One-hitters offer many advantages to cannabis consumers that typical pipes or bongs do not necessarily provide. Perhaps the most apparent benefit of using a cannabis one-hitter is its ease of use, allowing consumers to quickly and efficiently dose in almost any situation. Whereas pipes and bongs may require a minimal amount of set-up, one-hitters are ideal for those who value portability in their form of cannabis intake. As a complement to this portability, many one-hitters will offer special carrying cases for on-the-go use.
One-hitters are also considered much easier to clean than the average cannabis pipe, although you may find that your one-hitter is filled with resin faster. One-hitters can be cleaned using the same method as pipes or bongs, either with rubbing alcohol or a specially formulated resin cleaner.
