Every stoner has their own routine and preferences, but there’s always room for improvement. In this article, we list our top 6 accessories that will complement every smoking regimen. Which accessory can’t you live without?

You may regard yourself as a seasoned smoker, but have you got the accessories to back it up? In this article, we take a look at our top 6 essential weed smoking accessories.

6 OF THE BEST CANNABIS SMOKING ACCESSORIES

When talking about smoking accessories, we include everything from pieces and paraphernalia to loungewear and lighters. With all of these accessories at your disposal, you can take your smoke or vape to new levels of comfort and ease.

1. RQS STASH JAR

You just got in from a hard day at work and need something to take the edge off—time to hit the stash. So many of us started our stoner days storing our stash in an old tin or jam jar. But as we now know, it’s not always the best way to preserve your weed. Cue the Royal Queen Seeds Stash Jar.

This high-quality, airtight jar not only features a child-resistant screw-top lid, but also an external sleeve and lid to preserve your stash for much longer than those old containers. And, of course, it features the RQS logo brandished on the front. This jar seals in suspicious odours, making it perfect for clandestine exploits on the go.

This sleek black stash jar is available in a variety of sizes ranging from 4–16oz (

110–450g), catering to those with both small and large amounts of herb.

2. RQS POLLINATOR GRINDER WITH MILL

With your stash in hand, you now need a way to render those magnificent buds down to the ideal size for smoking. But the grinding process shouldn’t be a slog; one use of our Pollinator Grinder with Mill, and you will never go back to those plastic, single-chamber grinders.

This is a four-piece grinder for the seasoned stoner. With a see-through top, you can watch your bud being ground up while a fine mesh screen (located below the milling chamber) captures the precious pieces. To make sure nothing goes to waste, a kief chamber holds the valuable excess trichomes in the bottom.

A simple and stylish design, the Pollinator Grinder is black in colour and emblazoned with the Royal Queen Seeds logo on the side in white lettering. This grinder is only 62mm in height and will look right at home on your coffee table.

3. RQS MAGNETIC BAMBOO ROLLING TRAY

OK, so you’ve got your bud, but now you need somewhere to roll it up. Don’t even think about doing it on your thigh or clearing space on your messy desk. Keep things streamlined with the Royal Queen Seeds Bamboo Rolling Tray.

The tray is designed with the practical stoner in mind, featuring inlays to house all of your accessories. Held together by magnets, you can easily detach and assemble the tray, making for a convenient surface to roll on. Once you have arranged all your accessories and used this tray for the first time, you will wonder how you ever coped without it.

Once you’re finished using it, the tray easily folds away all neat and compact, ready to be used again. With the Royal Queen Seeds logo located in three separate areas, you know this is the seal of approval of a high-quality product.

4. VAPCAP M VAPORIZER 2019

If, instead of rolling up a joint or spliff, you choose to vape your weed, your choice of device is crucial. Do you worry about the battery life of your vaporizer during a long session? The VapCap M puts an end to your fears. In an industry full of electronics and smart technology, this vaporizer heads in another direction.

This is not to say that the VapCap M is a basic or unintuitive device; quite the opposite! This pocket-sized vaporizer is sophisticated, easy to use, and lets you vape to your heart’s content! All you need is a simple butane torch and you are good to go. No batteries and certainly no hassle. Ideal for use inside and outside the home. Just remember to pack your RQS Stash Jar for those trips outdoors to complement your discreet vape with a suitably discreet stash.

5. RQS CLIPPER LIGHTER

6 Weed Myths Fit Guys Can Ignore

Between the launch of cannabis-centric road races a few years back, the opening of the world’s first cannabis gym in San Francisco earlier this year, and unofficial estimations that upwards of 60% of pro-athletes in the NFL and NBA smoke weed, there’s no denying we’re entering a new era of what a stoner looks like.

–> But while the stoner stereotype might be changing, we’re willing to bet that people are still buying into old myths around marijuana use—especially because weed affects fit dudes differently from the average Jeff Spicoli.

Here, six myths about getting high that you need to stop believing.

1. Myth: You’ll get the munchies and undo your diet

Everyone who’s ever gotten stoned has experienced how pizza and cereal—pretty much anything your sober brain would ignore—suddenly become damn delicious. Why? Marijuana activates neurons typically responsible for shutting down cravings and causes them to instead promote hunger, Yale researchers found—like pressing the gas instead of the brakes.

But different strains of cannabis have different effects on these neurons. “THC may increase appetite, but CBD helps carbohydrate metabolism, fasting insulin, and metabolic function, mitigate and curb cravings—they work synergistically,” says Junella Chin, M.D., an integrative medical physician in New York and California specializing in medical cannabis and osteopathic neuromuscular medicine. “Having a cannabis formulation that is balanced in THC:CBD, or dominantly CBD, is helpful in minimizing the munchies.”

Also: As an athlete accustomed to pushing through pain, you won’t suddenly loose that steely willpower. “When somebody is more motivated, such as an athlete, they’re going to be more inclined to make better eating decisions while high,” adds Josh Axe, a doctor of natural medicine, certified nutrition specialist, and co-founder of Ancient Nutrition. In fact, marijuana users have a lower BMI than their clean counterparts, a study in the American Journal of Medicine found.

2. Myth: You should go hit-for-hit with your friend

“Each individual varies on how their liver breaks down cannabis and how rapidly it is absorbed into the blood and distributed to the rest of the body, including the brain,” says Chin. Cannabis is lipophilic, meaning it is stored in your body’s fat cells.

That means leaner, more athletic people metabolize it differently because they have less fat. “My athletic patients often report needing microdoses because of the rate at which they metabolize cannabinoids,” she adds.

3. Myth: Smoking will shackle fit people to the couch

Pounding edibles will most likely reduce you to the stereotype of a guy staring at the ceiling for hours in amusement. But a healthy dose won’t make you lazy AF because, well, you’re still you.

“For many athletes who are Type A with driven personalities, marijuana use won’t have too much of an impact on their overall temperaments,” Axe assures. The cannabinoids in marijuana—those are the chemical compounds in the flower—can help relax the body and decrease your sympathetic nervous response, which is why weed can help you chill out. But your natural athletic drive will still keep you productive.

4. Myth: Marijuana has no benefit to fit people beyond getting you high

“There’s a healthy, active population, such as athletes, who are using cannabis to help post-exercise relaxation and sleep, reduce muscle spasms, relieve pain, increase oxygenation of tissues and ligaments, and act as a neuro-protectant for contact sports to help treat concussions and head injuries,” Chin explains.

Her patients use specialized strains for everything from staying focused and in the zone while exercising to getting rid of the chatter and noise during meditation.

And don’t overlook the benefit of the relaxation that comes with getting high when you’re a fit dude. “A lot of athletes have really high levels of cortisol and hormones such as adrenaline, and an increased response from their sympathetic nervous system, all of which can contribute to keeping them stressed and tightly wound,” Axe says. “CBD oil or cannabis that has a balance of CBD and THC can help decrease the sympathetic response, helping to calm body and mind, and improve relaxation, which could ultimately help improve recovery in athletes.”

5. Myth: Marijuana is a performance-enhancing drug

While there’s very little data on how marijuana affects athletes, we do know that THC does not improve aerobic performance—in fact, it might actually reduce strength and ability to work at a high load, according to a new Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport analysis of studies related to cannabis and exercise performance.

That’s not good news for those who were hoping they’d get a better workout stoned, but it does throw a wrench in the NFL and NBA’s argument that weed should be banned because it’s a performance-enhancing drug.

6. Myth: Unlike cigarettes, smoking weed is safe for your health

For the record: Marijuana is safe for your health—certainly far, far healthier than smoking tobacco, says Jordan Tishler, M.D., a Harvard-trained internist and leading cannabis therapeutics specialist. Even though marijuana smoke contains a number of carcinogens, research shows it doesn’t increase your risk for lung cancer the way tobacco does.

But while the drug is safe, smoking it specifically presents the one and only potential risk: Studies suggest smoking weed longterm can increase your likelihood of chronic bronchitis, Tishler says. He’s quick to point out this is the only risk research has found to be associated with adults smoking cannabis, and it’s reversible. (Note that research on teenagers smoking is a different story.)

Since smoking is the unhealthiest way to ingest something that’s otherwise safe, Tishler recommends trading the method for vaporizing the whole flower instead. “Vaping completely mitigates the risk of smoking, but the oils most people vape with can have residual solvents via the extraction process and the cartridges contain harmful chemicals,” he explains. “Edibles are problematic because you have less control over dose and timeline of activation.”
