You may think you’ve perfected your smoking experience, but there are a number of game-changing products and accessories on the market that you may not even be aware of. Case in point: the one-hitter. If you’re still rolling joints the old-fashioned away, you may be missing out on the cleanest, easiest, and most precise way to smoke.
What Is a One-Hitter?
A one-hitter is a small glass or metal pipe that literally holds one hit, hence the name. Just pack it tightly with your favorite smoking material, light the end, and you’re ready to enjoy a quick, discreet smoke at home or on the go. Depending on the type, it may be made of clear glass or designed to mimic the look of a traditional cigarette for total discretion.
One-hitters are often sold as part of a dugout, a compact smoking kit (no bigger than a deck of cards) that allows you to grind, collect, and pack your favorite strain in a matter of seconds. The All In One Smokit 2 Inch is a premium example of a dugout that contains a glass one-hitter pipe, scooping tool, and grinder card. The dugout is small, discreet, and designed for minimal cleanup. It lets you carry all your supplies in your pocket without making a mess.
Using a One-Hitter
Using a one-hitter is easy. If you have the complete dugout, just use the card to grind your favorite smoking product into the storage receptacle. Then close the door and slide your one-hitter into the corresponding opening where the smoking product is stored. Twist the one-hitter as you insert it, as this will enable you to pack the product. Then release and enjoy. Before packing the one-hitter again, use the provided scooper to de-clog the pipe. Using a one-hitter can take a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Why You Need the One Hitter
When shopping for smoking accessories, you’ll notice that some dugouts come with a one-hitter while others come with a multi-hitter. Both of these tools have their advantages. For instance:
- They don’t have the shape or appearance of traditional rolled joints and are therefore more discreet when used in the presence of others.
- You can carry them in your pocket without making a mess or emitting unwanted odors that might attract attention.
- They’re quicker and easier to pack than other types of cigarettes, no rolling papers required. You save both time and money.
- Cleanup is quick and simple. Just de-clog the pipe using your scooper tool, empty out the storage compartment, and occasionally give the parts a quick cleaning.
- The glass cylinder protects your fingers from direct heat exposure. You don’t have to worry about getting burned or even getting your hands dirty.
If you’re currently a multi-hitter user, or if you’re still rolling your own cigarettes the old-fashioned way, there are a few good reasons to add a one-hitter to your arsenal.
1. It’s Extremely Compact
The one-hitter is among the smallest pipes available. It fits conveniently into pockets and purse compartments, and it doesn’t attract a lot of attention. When discretion is essential, one-hitters offer a distinct advantage.
2. It Provides Precise Dosing
When using a multi-hitter, you have to do your best to estimate how much product you’re actually getting with each use. One-hitters are far more precise. You know that you’re getting one hit, so you can more accurately estimate your THC content or general consumption.
3. It Helps You Avoid Overindulging
If your goal at any particular time is to just take a drag, a one-hitter is your best friend. When you have multiple hits at your disposal, it’s easy to just keep going—especially after you’ve enjoyed that first euphoric sensation. With a one-hitter, it’s a little easier to stay disciplined when you’re trying to regulate your usage.
4. It Makes Microdosing a Breeze
If you’re smoking for medicinal reasons or looking to minimize your usage, using a one-hitter makes things incredibly easy. Because everyone’s tolerance is different and not every user is looking for a psychoactive experience, microdosing is the preferred approach for many users. With a one-hitter, you can ensure that you’re only getting 2 to 5 mg of THC per use, thereby receiving the benefits without any unwanted after-effects.
Why the One-Hitter Is an Underrated Tool
In the world of smoking accessories, the trends typically skew toward “bigger.” In other words, how can we get the most mileage, the most powerful impact, and the longest-lasting effect? That attitude is understandable (and often even necessary), but sometimes less is more. We’re not always looking to empty our stash. Sometimes we just need that quick pick-me-up, and that’s where the one-hitter really shines. When you have both a one-hitter and a multi-hitter at your disposal, you can customize your experience for whatever the occasion requires.
