You can pack it in a bowl. You can dab it. You can even roll it up on some paper. What is it? Weed of course. 

There are so many wonderful ways of smoking weed. Some like those tasty clean bong hits. Those futuristic smokers love to get their fancy dab rigs out to enjoy some sticky wax. And then, of course, the old-school heads keep it simple and roll their herb in a joint or a blunt. 

Some even get creative and smoke out of a banana or an apple for those extra vitamins (or because they’re cheap asses). When it comes to weed we all have our favourite way of sparking up. But I’m sure you are all familiar with the abovementioned methods. 

But what do you know about that quick hit? That one-and-done hit? That on-the-go hit? So you don’t know all about those speedy secret hitters? Well, don’t worry because today we are going to tell you all about one hitter pipes and why they are so awesome.

What is a one hitter pipe?

You may be familiar with weed pipes and all the advantages that come with them. So imagine all those same benefits that weed pipes offer, except even smaller, more compact and even more discrete.

One-hitter pipes are easily one of the most compact smoking devices on the market today. Its simple design consists of a small bowl and a mouthpiece. As you can probably guess, your weed can be packed into this little bowl. From here you simply need to bring a flame to the bowl and enjoy your day. 

Some call one hitter pipes chillums or bats. But no matter what you call them, they are perfect for small and discreet hits. Fun fact! Some one-hitters are even designed to look like tobacco cigarettes. This makes them ideal for public use as from a distance others will think a regular cigarette is being smoked.

5 benefits of one hitter pipes

1. One hitter pipes are discreet

As we have now well established by now one hitter pipes are perfect for keeping things low-key. Their discreet design is great for public use. Not only that but the weed smell isn’t as likely to linger with one hitter pipes when compared to smoking a joint. 

2. One-hitters are portable

These bad boys are the Gameboy Advance of the weed world. They are the perfect size to stash in your pocket or purse. If you are looking for a smoking device that you can travel easily with then the one hitter pipe is for you. 

You don’t need anything extra such as water or fancy add-ons like a bong. One hitter pipes come ready to go. You can even pre-pack the bowl before heading out on your weed-filled adventures. 

3. One-hitters make dosage easy

Another great advantage of one hitter pipes is it gives the user the ability to dose and conserve their cannabis. You don’t have to commit to smoking a large bowl every time like with a bong or a regular-sized pipe. You can enjoy a small about of cannabis and feel an easy buzz instead of getting blasted high. Now, this could be a disadvantage to some. But we will leave that up to you.

4. One hitter pipes are ideal for tasting sessions

These pipes are excellent when it comes to trying new strains for the first time. With one hitter pipes, you can take it low and slow. This will give you a better idea of how your body and mind react to different strains and amounts of cannabis. 

One-hitters can therefore also be a more effective method of dosing cannabis correctly for medicinal users than smoking an entire joint. However, if that’s your purpose, we’d always still recommend a vaporizer.

5. One hitter pipes are easy to clean

Thanks to their small size one hitter pipes are also very easy to clean. As with regular weed pipes, one-hitters are made from a wide variety of materials such as metal, wood and glass. Glass has widely considered the best material for one hitter pipes as it handles heat well, doesn’t contaminate your smoke with unwanted chemicals and is easier to clean. 

Glass one-hitters are cleaned the same way as their normal-sized cousins. The only difference is it takes a little less time with these smaller pipes.

Their discreet nature paired with their portability make them great company for a day out. One hitter pipes have very few downsides. That is unless you are used to smoking out of a 6-foot bong.
