Rolling papers

There’s no better way to celebrate 4/20 than with a classic joint. This means that you’ll need plenty of nice rolling papers for the day. If you don’t already know how to roll the perfect joint, this holiday is the perfect day to learn! Here’s a tutorial courtesy of HERB.

Some great rolling paper choices:

  • Classic Zig-Zag: featuring a glue made from sap of the acacia tree, Zig-Zag products are sure to create the perfect smoke every time.
  • RAW Organic Hemp: for a safe and canna-friendly option, be sure to grab some RAW Oraganics. Not only do these burn well, but you’ll feel great for limiting the amount of paper chemicals that you’re inhaling.
  • Skunk Blueberry: a product of Spain, these tasty favored papers are sure to be crowd-pleasers. As a bonus, they’re also made from hemp!

Pen vape

While a joint is a must on 4/20, they can be a little tedious to roll over and over again if you plan on smoking through the day. For an easy-to-puff option to take when you’re on the go, pick up a vape pen. They can make your holiday celebrations easier than ever. There are several options as far as pens go. Here are a couple of the good ones:

  • O.Pen Vape: Beloved by most, these little oil vapes are similar to an e-cig. They’re super discrete and don’t create much of a smell, making them nice for smoking about town. O.pen vapes are available in many states with legal recreational or medical marijuana.
  • Cloud Vape: The nice thing about Cloud Vapes is that you can find either oil or flower varieties. This means that you can easily smoke your favorite bud or concentrate products.

It’s awful to not have a grinder on 4/20. Chances are you’ll be smoking/ vaping quite a bit. Picking up a good 3 chamber herb grinder from a local smoke shop is a serious time, and herb, saver. Not only will you be able to collect and put to use all that great keif, but you won’t be stuck manhandling your bud all day. No one likes that.

Cough drops/ gum

To help alleviate cotton mouth and make the most out of your day, be sure to pick up a pack of cough drops. Your favorite gum will also work well. This will restore much-needed saliva and ease a scratchy throat.

Eye drops

Another crucial must-have. Cough drops may help get rid of some of the pain, but after a bowl or two, it’s guaranteed you’ll be wanting something nice and cool to drink. Don’t forget to stock up! If you’re enjoying the day with friends, there’s always sure to be someone in need.
