Cleaning the Glass Pipe in Your Smell Resistant Stash Kit

He pressed his back against the wet stone of the alley wall, his eyes darting around, searching for dangers like a wild animal. His breathing slowed as he detected no one had followed him. He slowly slid down the wall to sit on the dirty sidewalk. The large green dumpster next to him provided his some privacy as he began to search through his newly stolen loot.

How to Use a One Hitter


How to use a one-hitter properly


The convenience of using a one hitter is undeniable. Packing a one hitter is as easy as pushing it into the grinder chamber that holds your ground up weed and voila you are ready for medicating on the go!

There is no discussion of how to smoke a one hitter, just light it and inhale. You will find it easily enough in your discreet stash kit, so pull it out and pack it up. Can it get it any easier than that? Well there are a few more smoke tips we can provide you with a one hitter that can make your experience easier and more enjoyable.

If you want to know how to use a hitter, we must start with a fundamental breakdown of a one hitter. Its name is intended to be very descriptive of the device itself. When packing a one hitter you will find that the opening at the top of a hitter is only big enough to fit just enough weed for one, maybe two hits. The longer portion of the pipe is where you inhale from. Reference the following picture for further details.

The thing about using a one hitter is that it can get hot! Afterall, it is a cigarette sized tube, so how long can you hold a flame to it before it conducts heat through the entire piece? Using a one hitter is best to do alone, or with maybe one other friend so that it does not get too hot. Have your stash travel case handy so you can set it down if it does get too hot. Otherwise, you will want to use something bigger like a glass bowl which should be easily found in your mmj travel case too.

Again, it’s an issue of heat. Hold your lighter away from the packed end rather than right up against the one hitter itself. You will see that when you pull on the one hitter, the flame magically comes to the marijuana and only burns the ground up cannabis. By not putting the flame directly against the tube, you will conduct less heat through the tube which will help prevent burning your fingers or lips.

How to pack a one hitter?

This is where it can get a little complicated. Simply packing a one hitter is not terribly challenging. If you grab your Happy Kit ginder out of your discreet stash kit and use that to grind up the weed, then just push the one hitter into the herb and then maybe you will need to use a finger to push it in a little more. What is important about how to pack a one hitter is that if you overpack it, you won’t be able to pull air through it well enough. Then all you are doing is charring the pot and wasting it. Over packing a one hitter is a major party foul! Don’t do it! Of all the smoke tips we could give you, that might be the most important one.

Use your Happy Kit Stash One Hitter right


Another important point about packing a one hitter is that you will discover that they get clogged. If you are planning on using a one hitter at a party or with friends, it’s best to make sure you clean it before you get there. You can always pull the pipe cleaner from your discreet stash kit and give the pipe a few run throughs. If you have the time, boiling a one hitter will clean it well and so will rubbing alcohol. You also do not want resin getting all over the inside of your mmj travel case either. It’s sticky and gross.


Keep your Happy Kit Stash One Hitter clean!


Well we hope these tips on how to smoke a one hitter have been helpful. As long as you abide by these guidelines on how to light a one hitter, and how to smoke a one hitter, you should find the one hitter pipe inconspicuous and easy for medicating on the go, It will be a nice compliment to your mmj travel case.


Stay Happy!

So, you are getting ready to go on a trip. Maybe you are leaving on business or to see family. Maybe it’s finally time for that long awaited vacation! A nice piña colada on the beach sounds pretty good doesn't it?

But wait, what about medicating on the go?

There is a lot to consider when you travel as a cannabis enthusiast. If you are a medical marijuana patient, then there are some real alternatives for you because there are now 30 states that allow medical marijuana. If you are a recreational cannabis enthusiast, then you best be careful traveling. Even in states that have legalized recreational marijuana, traveling across state lines with marijuana is a federal offense.

So, you need to have a plan when you travel, and a handy stash travel case is an essential part of the equation. Let’s go over some smoke tips to help you prepare for traveling with your mmj travel case.



Whatever the reason for your trip, you got to pack, right? Do you need to check luggage? Is your carry-on too big for the overhead bin? Do you have all of your necessary accessories?  Whatever your needs, you will need a discreet stash kit to pack away.

You track down your Happy Kit, and sure enough it tucks away nicely into almost any pocket of your luggage or carry on. Now you have to decide what you can carry in it. To figure that out you need to consider where you are heading and how you are getting there with your mmj travel case. You also need to consider the trip back. Marijuana is still illegal federally and so crossing state lines with cannabis can get you arrested. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you have no choice but to dispose of your stash travel case and possibly get arrested. So, it is really important that you plan it all out and understand the legal risks that are involved.

Are you flying domestically? If you are a medical marijuana patient in the United States, then go find your medical marijuana card and make sure that you have it with you before you leave for the airport. The card will fit nicely in your mmj travel case. Our advice is not to travel with marijuana of any sort. If you do, then you run the risk of TSA turning you over to the local police.

If you are thinking about flying internationally with marijuana, it is just not a good idea. Other countries can have very strict law enforcement about marijuana, so you should be very careful.

If you are not a medical marijuana patient, then you will want to make sure that your Happy Kit has no bud or even kief in it. All pipes or one-hitters need to be thoroughly cleaned of any resin if you want to make it through security with your pieces.

You should also check if your destination is a medical friendly state, and beyond that, you need to know if your destination state will honor your medical marijuana card. Some states will honor your local medical marijuana card but the airport you are departing from may have a ban on marijuana regardless of whether you have a medical marijuana card. If the airport bans any sort of cannabis, recreational or medical, then you can kiss the medicine in your mmj travel case goodbye.  


What about if you are driving? Do you know your rights if you are pulled over with your mmj travel case in the car? Keeping it in the trunk is a smart move. The police in any state require that you have your marijuana sealed, so storing your weed it in your Happy Kit stash travel case is a good idea. Storing your kit in the trunk means you are medicating on the go more safely. You should never drive under the effects of marijuana. It does not matter if you are a medical marijuana patient or not, driving under the influence is illegal.

However you are traveling with your cannabis, having a stash travel case like the Happy Kit may separate you from the reckless people that the authorities are really looking for. Layovers, delays and security can make traveling a real hassle and a little weed can make it a lot more tolerable. Learn the rules so that you can travel safely with your medication and enjoy all of the benefits too.

We hope these smoke tips have been helpful. Have you traveled with cannabis? What are your experiences with the safest way to travel with your medicine?

Making Friends while Medicating on the Go

Are you looking for the best smoke tips to share with other smokers and find some common ground to spark up a unique conversation? The Happy Kit proudly presents the best smoke tips for medicating on the go with a new found friend who medicates with cannabis.


It may not be easy to spot someone else who uses cannabis for recreational or medical use, but as soon as a conversation is started there are some tell tale signs that the person you are talking to is a weed advocate. If this person shares the same progressive views about MMJ and recreational weed, then not only might you find a new friend, but you might find yourself in a situation where you can break out your impressive stash travel case. Follow these steps to find a new friend, because a friend with weed is a friend indeed.

 

“A friend in need's a friend indeed, A friend with weed is better”

 


 

Step 1: Find out if the person you are talking to is down with recreational cannabis and MMJ.


First of all, if you are medicating naturally, then you probably never leave home without a couple of your critical chronic accessories. If you are chatting it up with a new friend and you ask that person if they smoke, and their answer is “smoke what?” then it’s obvious you are speaking to a cannabis user. It’s time to share in a unique moment to discuss your thoughts about the current political state of medical marijuana and recreational cannabis.

 


 

Step 2: Identify what type of cannabis user you are talking to.

 

Perfect, this person is down with weed and now it’s time to figure out if she/he is the casual medical marijuana user, a daily cannabis user or anything in between. Since you have already started talking about how you think marijuana should be legal in all states and how great medical marijuana would be for the economy and how much more chill people would be if they smoked a little weed, the transition is easy. Resist the urge to show all your cards and break out your stash kit. Ask followup questions to your new friend such as, what are her/his favorite smoke tips and whether they prefer bong hits, glass bowls, joints or dabbing? What is their favorite methods of mj consumption are. Do they have a favorite strain?

 



Step 3: Boast and brag a bit

 

You are smart and prepared for whatever life throws in your direction and today is the day that you remembered to pack your favorite MMJ travel case. Your discreet travel case has all the essentials for medicating on the go and now is the time to show off your own smoke tips! You and your new friend have gotten to the point where you feel comfortable asking them if they would like to smoke now. The obvious answer is YES! Break out The Happy Kit and a smile because you have a grinder, papers, a 3” glass pipe and your storage tube.

 

 

Step 4: Pick the right piece in your discreet stash kit


Now that you have made a connection and a possible friendship, it’s time to solidify that friendship by sharing some sacred medical marijuana. Since your new friend is a casual smoker, you decide that the discrete one-hitter is the perfect piece to celebrate the day. Make sure to use your included grinder, you get the perfect amount loaded into the one-hitter and hand it off to your new friend, leaving just enough to pack one for yourself.

 



Step 5: Friend each other and share encrypted messages with your favorite strains


You win the day. You carpe’d diem. You made a friend that may turn into a long lasting friendship or you may never see that person again. You figured out the best way for medicating on the go and were able to show off your discreet stash kit. Either way, you made a connection and have done your part to better the world and especially America.

Stay Happy!

Before we get started, make no mistake, it is still illegal to fly with weed.  We can, however, give you a few suggestions if you feel brave enough to get in Johnny Law's face to get your green to your destination.

Getting through the airport with weed may seem impossible, but there are a few tricks you can use to help mask the cannabis smell and make it look more discreet within your baggage.  Don't whip out the million plastic bags, coffee grounds and duct tape though - we're not trying to be Pablo Escobar over here.  A smell proof marijuana case like the Happy Kit Deluxe can assist you in this step, as you can safely zip your flower inside and place the inconspicuous black case within your luggage in leu of a plastic bag full of paraphernalia.

While we're on the topic of scent, let's take a minute to talk about airport dogs.  You can take a deep breathe here - you'll be happy to know that the majority of dogs seen at airports and domestic flights are bomb sniffing dogs.  Drug dogs are generally only found at international terminals, but you'd never even think about flying to another country while holding, right?  Right.

 After you dab the sweat off your forehead and walk into the airport with your stash, the next step is going to be to keep your anxiety levels down.  Sure, you hear horror stories about massive drug busts in airports, but the reality is that TSA agents are not cops.  TSA is not looking to bust you for a few joints hidden in a pack of Q tips or some Cheeba Chews tucked away in your backpack - they're looking for weapons and other risks to the public.  They may look at you a little funny if your eyes are beet red because you decided to spend an extra half hour in the long-term parking garage with your rig and some wax (it's going to be a long day after all, isn't it?), but that's the worst you can expect.  Either that, or they'll just think to themselves "Man, I can't wait to get home and burn one".

After you make your way past security, keeping your cool the entire time, you've gotten through the scary part.  From here on out, your only job is to make sure that you don't open any compartments that could let out the stink of your stash.  Hopefully you didn't put your candy and green in the same compartment of your luggage!

 

Another thing to note is going to be your destination state, and any layovers you may have.  Any seasoned weed-smoking traveler knows that some states are friendlier to mosey through than others.  Ending up or have a layover in Oklahoma, Missouri or Arkansas?  Think about leaving the green at home and trying to find some when you land.  Flying non stop to California, Nevada, or any other green states?  You most likely don't have anything to worry about except not smoking too much of your stash in the car before you get on the plane.

 

The best news we can give is to never leave home without a weed travel kit so your essentials are not just loosely floating around your bag.  Why raise suspicion when it isn't necessary?
