Attitudes about parents who smoke weed are slowly changing. As society learns that it’s possible to be a cannabis enthusiast, a contributing member of the community, and a good parent, it has become slightly more acceptable for parents to talk about their cannabis use openly. Alas, there’s still some stigma out there that can make a simple smoke sesh tough for parents who smoke weed. With Parent’s Day coming up in July, let’s take a look at some discreet essentials, and celebrate the parents who might want to stay discreet until their kids are out of the house
Cannabis-friendly parents know that safety comes first, so make sure your weed, devices, lighters, edibles and everything else weed-related stays out of reach of children.
As many already know, becoming a parent doesn’t mean you have to stop smoking weed or hide the fact that you do. Some parents even say smoking weed makes them better parents. There are still times, however, when it’s better to keep your sesh as discreet as possible. Whether it’s a backyard sesh after bedtime or at the kiddos’ soccer practice, these are five discreet smoking essentials for parents who smoke weed.
As a parent with a million other responsibilities, keeping your weed rituals on the down-low means you can’t waste any time trying to roll the perfect joint. The Twisty Glass Blunt from 7Pipe is a hassle-free, paperless way to smoke a perfect joint every time.
Ideal for parents who smoke weed, the Twisty Glass Blunt can get you buzzed in just four simple steps. Remove the cap, fill the tube with ground dry herbs, push the screw back into the tube and light up. The heat slowly travels up the gold-colored twist, so the smoke is cool by the time you inhale. It’s small enough to carry in your bag all day; pre-packed for a couple of discreet puffs here and there. Cheap but durable, this glass blunt delivers smooth, potent draws without the hassle of rolling a joint.
There are many reasons why parents who smoke weed should add an electronic lighter to their stash. Firstly, the Plazmatic X Electronic Lighter is equipped with a child-safety lock to prevent any accidents by curious kiddies. Secondly, it makes for very discreet sessions. Since it’s a butane-free, flameless lighter that runs on a battery-powered electric current, it will light you up on the first go even in the windiest conditions. It’s a suave way to light your joint without making it a big ordeal as you try to shield yourself from the elements.
Using an electric lighter also means you won’t be contributing to the millions of plastic butane lighters that end up in landfills every year. After all, this is the planet you’re leaving behind for your children and their children, and so on. Electric lighters are an essential device for parents who smoke weed because they are childproof, will never leave you hanging and are better for the environment.
If you’re tired of skeptical looks from other parents while smoking, a vaporizer is a great match for you. The Firefly 2 is an excellent alternative for parents who smoke weed in public. This vape doesn’t produce much of a smell, heats up quickly, and is compatible with dry herbs and concentrates. The on-demand convection system only heats your material when you take a draw, delivering smooth, flavorful vapor. It extends your stash, saves your money and doesn’t leave a strong smell lingering in the air.
Sleek and lightweight, the Firefly 2 heats up in just five seconds so you can snag a couple draws very quickly. Since you can control the temperature from an app on your phone, you can leave your vape in your pocket until you need a draw. The Firefly 2 is the perfect vaporizer to avoid the gawking eyes of other disapproving parents. Great for discreet, on-the-go draws, the Firefly 2 is a must-have device for parents who smoke weed in public.
Whether you’re vaping or smoking, freshly ground flower will get you the most bang for your buck. The Aerospaced 4-Piece Grinder grinds your weed to an even consistency with ease. This makes it a lot easier to pack a bowl. You won’t attract any unwanted attention fumbling around trying to bust up your bud by hand. Grinding also increases the surface area of your weed which makes for an even extraction of cannabinoids and better flavor. You can use less weed and still get a great high.
The very bottom layer of this grinder is a kief collector. Perfect for parents who smoke weed, you can sprinkle kief into your Twisty Glass Blunt or Firefly 2 chamber when you need an extra kick. Kief can also be used to make edibles, and there’s probably nothing more discreet than cannabis-infused salad dressing or cookies. Just make sure it stays out of reach of kids.
Keeping your device clean is vital for parents who smoke weed. Your glass blunt and vape will last longer and be in better shape if you clean it with Higher Standards ISO Pure cleaning fluid now and then. Made of 99% isopropyl alcohol, this solvent eliminates buildup and residue that gathers naturally over time. Using on most glass, metal and silicone surfaces is safe. A discreet smoke sesh means no funky smells, tastes or awkward delays due to a gunked up chamber. Plus, a clean device is healthier for you, smells less and tastes better.
