With around 12% of American adults saying they consume cannabis, there are tens of millions of users in the USA alone. If you want to consume cannabis, there are a few different ways it can be done. You can vape it, take edibles, and even consume pills or tinctures.

But one of the most tried, true, and popular methods is to smoke it. But even when it comes to smoking, you have a lot of choices in terms of how you decide to do it. With that in mind, this article is going to go over some of the best devices to smoke cannabis.

A-One Hitter

A one-hitter is a popular device that is as simple to use as it is discreet. Normally made out of metal or glass, this is a small pipe that holds (you guessed it), one hit. They are easy to conceal and very simple to use with nothing but a bowl to pack, light, and then a mouthpiece. They can come in various different styles and colors, too.


They are great for those who like full control over their dosage, or simply those who prefer smaller amounts of cannabis. Many also like to use a one-hitter to conserve their stash for as long as possible without wasting any. Of course, as with any cannabis product, be sure to know how to clean a one hitter to keep it in the best shape possible.

A Joint

When it comes to how people smoke, many prefer the simple and timeless joint. All it takes is some rolling papers, your favorite flower, a grinder, and potentially a filter and you’re set. Simply grind your flower, spread some on the paper, and roll it up.

It may require a bit more preparation than some other methods, but many like that they don’t have to carry around a pipe and can still enjoy cannabis. This one is a little less discreet in most cases, and measuring your dosage isn’t always as easy as it is with a one-hitter.

A Bong

Smoking from a bong for the very first time can be a little intimidating. There is a lot to do and remember when compared to a joint, but after enough time, you’ll get the hang of it. This is a helpful guide if you want a little assistanA Bongce. While it is a longer process than many other methods, many like this ritual and say it adds to the experience.

Many people also prefer smoking from bongs as it is often easier on your lungs and may taste better. This is because the ash gets trapped in the water, and doesn’t end up accidentally being inhaled by you.

Bongs can come in all different shapes, sizes and some look more like pieces of art than a device used to smoke. Of course, be sure to change out the water frequently, and be careful not to drop your bong or let it fall off your table.

A Pipe

Another popular device to smoke with is your standard pipe. If you do a search for pipes, you will be greeted by thousands of different shapes, sizes, and colors. No matter your preference, you are sure to find a pipe that you enjoy.

These are quite similar to a one-hitter in terms of usage, except they generally have a much larger bowl and aren’t generally a straight tube. You will simply grind up your flower, pack your bowl, light it and inhale. When lighting, it is smart to hold the pipe at a bit of an angle so you don’t burn yourself.


While there are several different ways you can smoke and consume cannabis, these four devices are among the most common and best. They are generally affordable, easy to use, and will no doubt continue to be popular.
