Everything You Need For an Epic Smoke Session to Celebrate the First Day of Summer
Emerge from your hibernation and kick off the summer in style.
The summer solstice on June 21 marks the official start of summer. It brings the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s been celebrated with festivals and parties for centuries where people eat, drink, dance and honor the change of seasons. Don’t fret if you can’t make it to the traditional fertility rituals and bonfire-jumping at Stonehenge in England, you can celebrate the summer solstice with a smoke session right at home. Here’s everything you need for the perfect smoke session to celebrate the first day of summer.
Rolling papers as gold as the sun and as sweet as cherries.
Mimic the golden glow of the sun during your summer smoke session by puffing on a 24K gold joint. Just roll up your favorite dry herb in the Shine 24k Gold Cone and spark up. This handcrafted hemp-blend cone is made from edible 24K gold and delivers rich, smooth draws for a potent buzz. The first day of summer only comes once a year, so you might as well go big or go home.
If you’re more of a flavor chaser, you can add a burst of sweetness to your smoke session by rolling with Juicy Jay’s Very Cherry Rolling Papers. These unbleached, chemical-free cherry-flavored rolling papers are made from all-natural hemp pulp. Infused with flavor on three separate occasions as part of the ‘triple-dip flavor system,’ Juicy Jay’s are three times as flavored as other flavored rolling papers. They burn slowly and have cherries printed all over them. These flavored rolling papers are a must-have when it comes to an epic smoke session to celebrate the arrival of summer.
A blunt bubbler that cools you down and keeps you elevated.
The Martian Blunt Bubbler is a must-have item for an epic smoke session to celebrate the change of season. This blunt-bong hybrid delivers a big high. It lets you smoke an entire blunt or joint right to the very last hit without burning your fingers or lips. Add some cool water to the bubbler and slide your burning blunt into the bowl. As you draw on your blunt, the water filters out ash while cooling the smoke for refreshing, tasty hits. Perfect for ringing in the new summer season, the Martian Blunt Bubbler helps you beat the heat and get buzzed at the same time.
Full-flavor hits with lots of kief.
The key to any effortless smoke session is well-ground flower. The Aerospaced 4-Piece Grinder slices through dry herbs making it easy to fill your 24K gold cone and roll your cherry-flavored jay. Grinding your flower increases its surface area for a more even and smooth burn, bringing out the aromas and flavors of your dry herb strain. The very bottom layer of this grinder is a kief collector. You can add kief to your joint or bowl for an extra kick to get you in that carefree summer mood.
Ice cold bong hits under the sun.
A smoke session with icy bong hits is the perfect way to cool off on the first day of summer. The Eyce Mold 2.0 lets you literally make a bong out of ice. Fill the silicone mold with water, pop it in the freezer and, once frozen, light up as usual. The all ice chamber cools your smoke to a chilly -3°C for pure hits and big flavor. Eyce sells an Eyce 2.0 Waterpipe Ninja Suit that keeps your ice bong frozen for more than an hour so you can embrace the extra bit of sunlight that marks the beginning of summer.
A lighter that outsmarts Mother Nature.
A smoke session to celebrate the arrival of summer doesn’t necessarily guarantee ideal weather. Luckily, you can outsmart the elements while still honoring the change of seasons. The Plazmatic X electronic lighter is a flameless, butane-free lighter that lights you up on the first try even in the windiest conditions. As long as the battery is charged, the electric current creates intense heat between two nodes. This electric lighter is much hotter than a traditional butane lighter, and is better for not only your smoke sessions, but for your health and the environment. Even if it’s windy, you can welcome summer with open arms and a perfectly lit joint in your lips.
The start of summer is definitely something to celebrate. These are the must-have items for an epic smoke session to honor the first day of summer. They’ll keep you cool on the longest day of the year as you soak up the sun.
