What Is a One Hitter and 3 Reasons You Need One
So just what is a one hitter you ask?
You may have seen the traditional style in which the one hitter pipe looks like a cigarette at first glance, right?
The cigarette one-hitter is the popular image that comes to mind when someone thinks of a one-hitter, but there are actually a few different styles as well such as the Japanese Kiseru and the Middle Eastern Midwakh as well. But for the sake of simplicity let's focus on the modern one hitter weed device.
A one hitter is a small narrow smoking pipe that was designed for "one hit" of marijuana. Other common names for a one hitter is: chillum, bat, taster, taster bat, and oney or onie.
The traditional one hitter pipe holds about 25 milligrams of marijuana per every one hit. This may seem like a small amount but let's explore why the one-hitter is the best smoking device:
1.One Hitters are Discreet and Perfect For On the Go
Because of their slender design, one hitters are perfect for discreet smoking. If you have a long commute to work and have enough time to air out the car, you won't find a bong or a blunt the best way to smoke. A one-hitter gives you just enough for that morning wake and bake or that perfect unwind after work.
For all the stealth smokers you wouldn’t pull out a blunt or bong in public, but avid one hitter fans enjoy the simplicity of have a quick hit and moving on with their schedule. Whether you are traveling to Amsterdam or flying into marijuana friendly states, the one hitter is always the best option to travel with.
2.One Hitter Pipes Save You Marijuana and Money
Times are rough as of 2021, right? It's not about just buying a gram of weed and rolling a whole blunt now, we need to think how to save! If you save marijuana then you save money, right? Smoking with a one hitter is the most efficient way to smoke weed.
The onehitter is the top smoking device that helps you save on your precious buds. The simple fact is when you smoke with a onehitter you are actually microdosing your marijuana and this allows you to never "over smoke". Meaning you only smoke what you need to get high and you never push your tolerance past the limit. Smoking a gram of marijuana from a onehitter can save you hundreds of dollars in a month and that sounds like a great investment!
3.One Hitter Helps Maintain Tolerance and Lung Health
Using a onie weed pipe helps to maintain your tolerance. I personally use a one hitter and my friend smokes a blunt. I smoke a fraction of what he smokes but yet we still get the same high, and this is because of tolerance control!
This may seem like something that isn't important but the lower you keep your tolerance the easier it is for your lung, you wallet, and your quality of life. Ever smoke concentrates for a month only to find out when you go back to smoking flower it just isn't enough? By keeping your tolerance low you can manage your smoking and a one hitter definitely it the only tool that puts your tolerance and health first.
The Best One Hitter of 2021
As the cannabis industry progresses so does the technology in which we smoke, right?
While the cigarette one hitter was a very popular method back in the day, new and much better one hitters are being created such as the Dart. The Dart solves all the major complaints of the original one hitter such as over heating, air flow, and not being able to clean quickly and efficiently.
Let's take a look at all the reasons why the Dart is the best one hitter:
A major drawback of using a traditional one hitter is the poor airflow when you pack the flower chamber. This is due to the fact that most one hitters don't work well with their canister or dugouts. When you pack your one hitter with nugs too tightly this blocks airflow, resulting in clogging and resin build up.
The Dart was built with a sharp beveled edge in the marijuana chamber that allows the user to dig through the flower easily.
The traditional one-hitter's on the market is a bit out dated but the Dart allows for maximum potential on your airflow giving you the best pull on your taster bat.
Traditional One Hitter’s are generally made cheaply. The Dart wields a anodized aircraft aluminum for high impact resistance and anti-corrosion. Not only that, compared to a traditional One Hitter that may get too hot to hold at times, the Dart is highly heat resistant.
Easier to Clean
Ever see the inside of a traditional one hitter? Nobody has and that's because you can't take them apart! Imagine all the festering bacteria building up with the resin and tar that could get into your lungs. The Dart features a self-ashing system and an innovative design in which you can take apart and clean.
Also a bonus tip, when clicking to ash you maintain the cleanliness of your one hitter which allows you to clean this smoking device much less.
Dart is The Best One-hitter
While the traditional one hitter pipes were amazing in it’s day, the Dart is clearly the winner when it comes to being the best one hitter. Not a believer? Check out all the amazing legitimate 5 star reviews! Now for all of you that are just wondering how easy it is to use and clean this amazing smoking tool read below!
How to Use a One Hitter
Understanding how to use a one hitter is simple.
The key to using a one-hitter is the consistency of the marijuana that you place inside of the bowl of the one hitter pipe. You don’t want the pieces of bud too finely grounded down, if this happens you will find yourself inhaling a fine amount of ash. We will cover more in depth on how to get this perfect ground weed in the next section.
Follow these three simple steps on how to use a one hitter:
1.Twist to Load your One-Hitter
Put your grounded marijuana into the canister. Remember grind the weed so it's not too small or too big. This takes trial and error. Then take your Dart One Hitter and push the chamber side into the marijuana canister. Use the beveled edge in the chamber by twisting the end of your taster bat until your pick up marijuana into the chamber.
2.Smoke Your One-Hitter
Next you want to place the inhalation end of your chillum into your mouth. Take a lighter and ignite the marijuana gently. Do not keep the flame on the weed directly. Light the flame and take the chamber end and dip into the flame back and forth to get a nice even burn. Inhale!
3.Ash your One-Hitter
Once you are finished smoking click the button on the end in which you inhaled to eject the ash. This helps prevents build ups and prolongs the cleaning process making the Dart hitter pipe much more efficient to use.
How to Pack a One Hitter Perfectly
Knowing how to pack a one hitter depends entirely upon the consistency of your ground cannabis. If you grind your marijuana up too fine then the flower will just turn to ash and you will be pulling all of that into your lungs.
If the flower is not broken enough and the pieces are too big then you are going to block the airflow up on your one hitter weed pipe. This takes a little practice guys because all grinders are made differently.
Here at Dart we suggest you try different sizes and load your one hitter up and test it out. Once you know the perfect size you will know exactly how much to grind your weed with your specific grinder.
Packing the perfect fit for your chillum will take a few trial runs. Soon you will be able to eyeball whether you are going to have a good pull from your one hitter by how you packed it. Practice guys!
How to Clean a One Hitter
Cleaning a traditional one hitter can get a bit messy. The longer you don’t clean it the more resin builds up inside. Bacteria begins building from uncleaned resin and tar and you don't want to inhale these harmful toxins into your lungs!
To be proactive you want to make sure you are ashing and getting out any debris in your taster bat after you smoke to prevent large resin build ups. Also make sure to take apart your taster bat to make sure you get a full clean.
If your one hitter is already at a point where it needs some deep cleansing, then there are multiple ways to clean a one hitter weed pipe. A very popular method is using a sealable bag and placing your one hitter in there with isopropyl alcohol and 1-2 tablespoons of salt. The coarser the salt the better. Put enough alcohol so the one hitter is submerged, and it wouldn’t hurt to throw another 1-2 oz of hot water to help loosen the resin up.
Seal the bag and begin shaking so you make sure all the ingredients are mixing together well and doing its magic. Keep shaking when you feel the need but you can also leave the bag to the side for the 1-2 hours.
Traditional one hitters cannot come apart so you won’t be able to restore the inside to its original pristine-self, but it’s enough to get the majority of the built up resin out.
Another alternative is to use the much newer and improved one hitter: The Dart. The Dart like any other pipe in the world used for smoking will have resin build up as well.
With a Dart you can take it apart very quickly and clean the one hitter much more thoroughly. Check out our in-depth guide on how to clean a one hitter.
