There are a variety of different devices that you can use to have a better experience, and if you are interested in what the market has to offer then this 2023 guide is for you. Keep in reading to find out what one-hitters are and how to use them properly.
What are they?
The one-hitters are devices that are used to smoke herb discreetly, everywhere you want. They can be used at home, or they can be utilized on the go. There are many different types and options when it comes to size and design, and as you will see further down this article, you can choose the right one based on your preferences.
They are basically small pipes that hold enough herb for just one hit and they come made of a variety of materials including glass, metal, or even stainless steel, and you can pick the best one depending on the type as well as your budget. The great thing about them is that they hold enough flowers to satisfy your needs without having to do a full session when you don’t have time for it.
They range in size and they can be made with specific shapes and designs to accentuate their beauty and the use, or they can be made to be completely discrete and even look like cigarettes.
What are the different types?
Now that you know more about these units, let’s see what the different types are and how to choose the right one depending on your preferences.
There are many different types, and you should know that every manufacturer makes slight changes to their products to satisfy the customers’ needs or to create a better product.
Nevertheless, the most common types include discretion, conservation, chillums, and dugouts. Once again, these are not the only types that you can find on the market, but these are some of the most popular ones. If you want to find something different, the best thing you can do is find stores that are in your area or that ship to your country. Remember that you always have more choices and you don’t need to stick to just things that are currently trendy.
If you are looking for a small item that you can use anywhere you want, then you should opt for the discretion goods. They are easily concealable, pretty easy to use, they come with different designs, and they can be placed pretty much anywhere including in your pocket or your purse. When you check more details about them, you will see that one-hitters can come with a design of a cigarette, so you don’t have to worry about using them in public and getting noticed.
When it comes to the conservation type, as the name suggests, these units are great if you want to store your herbs and conserve them for future use. When you use them, you can only utilize a bit of the flower, and then you can just keep the unit as a container.
The chillums are one of the oldest types, and it has survived for many generations. They are unique because they can be used both vertically and horizontally, and they come in different shapes and designs. They are definitely popular with both new and advanced users, so if you want to combine tradition with this practice, then you should check them out.
The dugouts hold similar functions to the conservation type, and they have two chambers. One is used for the one-hitter as you are using it, and the other one can be used as storage. Keep in mind that the storage space here is smaller than the conservation type, so be mindful of what you want to get and how much herb you want to store.
How to use them?
Now let’s see how to use these goods and what you need to be mindful of. The first thing you need to know is that different types and products are going to come in different directions of use, so before thinking that you know how to use the new one hitter just because you’ve had one before, think again. It is recommended to always read the manual before you start the process. The main reason for this is that if you make even just one small mistake, you are going to ruin your experience. You will risk the herb not being distributed evenly, and you will end up having an overall negative experience.
When it comes to the basics, no matter which type you use, it usually starts with grinding the herb to the needed consistency. You can either use two containers and place a slightly larger one on the top of the one-hitter so they can have more herb to smoke, or you can just use the container that comes with the device itself. For this part, it is up to you and you are the one who chooses if the original chamber is large enough, or if you need something bigger.
You will need to pack the bowl and make sure that it is not too loose and there is no excess air in between, and you also need to be mindful not to be packet too tight. Once that is done, the next step is to put the device in your mouth and then bring the flame in. Inhale while lighting the piece and keep in mind that this is supposed to go slow, for both inhaling and exhaling. Don’t try to get more of the herb than you actually can, and if it is not enough, then just pack another bowl.
You may need some time to get used to the practice and the new devices, but overall, one-hitters are great for those who want to be discrete, smoke on the go, and people who want to carry the herb with them. Make sure you talk to the seller about the different types and options and see which one works the best for your needs.
