Building a perfectly personalized kit for weed

A sesh at home is easy. There’s a comfortable space set up with accessories, smoking devices, and other accouterment that has been carefully curated for this exact situation. But what about when it’s time to take the show on the road? With some foresight, a traveling kit for weed can bring the comfort of a home sesh into the wild.

Personalizing a stash box or smell-proof bag to cater to someone’s preferred consumption ritual isn’t hard–it just takes some thinking. Take these steps and considerations to build the perfect cannabis go bag for any occasion, then add your favorite pot products.

Choosing the actual kit for weed

Gen Z is probably tired of hearing Millenials go on about keeping their weed in makeup bags. But it’s essential to celebrate how far the culture has come. Now, a stash bag can be smell-proof, made for travel, and come in plenty of different styles.

The fashionista may look for a kit bag that doubles as a cute handbag, like the fine leather smell-proof line from Littlejohn New York. Newer brand SnugBox brings a bit more funk with locking hard case stash boxes in cute prints.

Those who value utility over function may like a lockable fanny pack from Dime Bags or roll top backpack from RYOT or Feel Good Flavors. Both companies have deals with free shipping. These options can be strapped on for a high hike or road trip, and they conceal the odor of the stash. Whatever the vessel, get something smell-proof with a lock for optimum privacy.

Cannabis consumption devices

Choosing how to consume cannabis can be personal. Perhaps health conditions require someone to choose edibles over joints, or onset time makes inhalation more ideal. When packing up a kit for weed it’s crucial to bring the right consumption device.

The first thing flower people should consider is whether the smell would be an issue. A joint, pipe, or bubbler would work swimmingly if there’s no need to conceal smoke. However, if consumption isn’t welcome a dry herb vape or a vape pen is a better option.

Dabbers should consider an electric nectar collector, also known as a dab straw, which heats at one end for a quick pull once the hot straw touches the product. The Little Dipper from Dip Devices is one high-powered and affordable option.

The Puffco Peak Pro is another solid option, as the electronic rig is light and changeable. While it may be a bit on the pricier side, it tends to hit well and the carrying bag (sold separately) is a weed kit all on its own.

Some may opt to build a kit for weed that caters to multiple consumption methods in case people with differing preferences join the sesh. Think ahead to the location, rules, and who will be there to add the perfect consumption devices to the stash bag.

Smoking accessories

After the consumption method is nailed down, it’s time to gather the proper smoking accessories. People who like flower should consider if a grinder is needed (it usually is). It’s also a good idea to toss rolling papers and crutches into the kit for weed–never know when it’ll be time to roll up.

Of course, don’t forget the lighter, which is the ultimate party foul. That’s why it’s never a bad idea to keep a magnifying glass in the stash box to take solar hits if the lighter runs out of juice.

If extracts are the move, there are a couple accessories to consider depending on your favorite method. Vape pen lovers should always make sure the battery is charged and the cartridge is working before setting out.

Those who prefer to dab will need a carb cap and dab tool; the Puffco Hot Knife is perfect for this occasion. These accessories maximize the hit to get the crew lit.

Don’t forget the clean-up

The last essential thing to consider when building a kit for weed is what might be needed for the post-sesh clean-up. First off, bring something to ash in. Even if the sesh is outside, the Earth doesn’t need more rubbish. Ash in a disposable container or portable ashtray to avoid adding more pollution to the planet.

Anyone with a dry herb vape on their list might want to also add a tool to get vaped herb out of the chamber and a small brush to clean it out. Most vapes come with these tools.

The dab crowd should consider packing Q-tips for their chambers, which can get sticky if left without cleaning. Putting individual pieces into small bags or containers within the stash box or bag can offset the chance of the inside getting dirty.

Pack the cleaning supplies in the kit for weed to avoid a bigger mess in the future, and leave less garbage behind at the sesh spot.

These four steps can lead to a perfectly packed cannabis kit to take on the go. Figure out what kind of bag is best to carry on the journey and the consumption method, and everything falls into place from there. Just don’t forget the weed!
