After a long period that has seen many stuck inside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people are more eager to travel than ever. Quarantines and lockdowns have cannabis users’ wanderlust at an all-time high, meaning many are looking to enjoy their smoke sessions on the road without sacrificing the quality of their clouds. However, while some accessories make ideal travel pipes, others will head off to that big pipe cemetery in the sky at the first sign of turbulence. No matter whether you are a seasoned traveller or a fresh-faced newbie, you deserve gear that will survive the journey in your backpack, carry-on or checked luggage. Discover simple tips and tricks for how to choose the best travel pipe for you this summer!

Research Materials

If there is one thing you can never get enough of, it is cannabis education, which is why our biggest piece of advice is to do your research! Learning about common pipe materials will help narrow down your search, allowing you to maximize your time by only looking through accessories that satisfy your needs. When it comes to choosing a travel pipe, we recommend durable materials like stone or metal, or even flexible pieces like silicone pipes. Once you have selected the ideal, you can focus on the style and sort through spoon pipes, sherlock pipes, dab rigs, and more! Plus, the material you are considering will provide you with a price range, so you can also make a budget and stick to it!

Functional Build

While on the road, we can appreciate tools with 2-in-1 capabilities, and the same is true when it comes to travel pipes. Consider that you won’t have your normal setup as you would at home, meaning that extra features and functions that streamline the smoking process are vital. For instance, the Journey Pipe offers plenty of functional features, like a magnetic lid and screenless technology, that make smoking on the go a breeze. Other possible features for travel pipes include a poker, stash compartment, or even a built-in battery for vapes! Whether you are free camping in the woods or chilling at a swanky resort, you will want to ensure that your smoke sessions are 100% stress-free, which is why functionality is key!

Opt for Quality

In the search for the best travel pipe for you, it’s vital to factor in the quality of all your prospective choices. That means you need to carefully review the fine print, read reviews, and ask experts (like budtenders) for their opinion on the piece in question. We all love a good bargain, but sometimes the most affordable option isn’t the best quality, meaning it won’t last long in your collection, and you may have to replace it not long after you bought it. When possible, choose to pay a little more for a better quality pipe that will stand the test of time. Not only will a quality travel pipe be a better investment, but it will also grow into a long-time travel companion that you can depend on, care for, and turn to whenever you need it.

Time to Enjoy

The time has come to begin the search for your travel pipe, and with these simple tips and tricks, you’re sure to find the best one for you. Now, all that’s left is to get out on the road and spark up your travel pipe! Here’s one last pro-tip: before travelling around with your gear, be sure you check out the application cannabis laws at your destination. It’s always better to be safe (and legal) than sorry, buds! Stay safe and happy travels!
