Another user commented it is “Perfect for those quickies. I don’t need much for the good feels in between those quick breaks.”
What is A One Hitter
Let’s back up a little bit. What exactly is a one hitter?
One hitters were designed out of a means of necessity to make it easy to discreetly smoke on the go.
For this reason, one hitters are tiny pipes used to take a hit or two and then tuck back in your pocket, bag or dugout.
One hitters go by many names depending on the circle you're running in, so don’t be surprised if you hear them also referred to as a taster, taster bat or oney.
How To Use A One Hitter
One hitters are pretty easy to use!
The innovative design of the DART’s One Hitter with its beveled bowl tip and ash ejector button make smoking this pipe even more seamless than the traditional one hitter designs.
Follow these quick and easy steps and you’ll be hitting your one hitter in no time!
Gather Your Supplies
First things first! Gather all the essentials to ensure you are fully prepped for your smoke session.
Grab your one hitter, your grinder, a lighter and your green.
Grind Your Bud
With a one hitter, you’ll want to make sure you grind your weed the right way.
If you leave your flower too chunky, you’ll struggle to get decent air flow on your hit.
Grind your bud into too fine of a consistency, and you’ll either ash the bowl on first light or end up inhaling some nice marijuana dust on your hit.
A nice and easy grind is best for your one hitter!
Store Your Stash
Once you have your green ground up just right, go ahead and dump your bud out of your grinder and into an herb canister.
If you have one of the DART’s smell proof canisters, this will help you be even more discreet when you are on the go with your green.
It will also make loading your DART One Hitter much more efficient while keeping your bud nice and fresh for future smoke sessions.
Pack Your Bowl
The beveled edge on the tip of the DART’s One Hitter bowl makes packing this pipe quick and easy.
Simply dip the tip of your pipe into your ground up green, press down lightly and give it a little twist.
And just like that - your bowl is loaded! No need to try and pinch a small bit of your bud into your bowl, spilling bits along the way.
The DART’s One Hitter loading method is a great way to help conserve your cannabis.
And even better, the beveled tip helps to keep your bowl in place when it is loaded.
So, you can be a bit more liberal with your hand gestures since the green won’t spill out as easily as it does with traditional one hitter designs.
Take A Hit
And now for the best part!
Put the mouthpiece end of your one hitter against your mouth, and give the bowl a light.
Take a nice pull of an inhale and give your green a good hit.
If you pull hard and take a large hit, you’ll most likely cash your one hitter at that point. But if you give your pipe a lighter pull, you can probably get a second hit out of it before it’s cashed.
Ash Your Bowl
When your bowl is cashed, it’s time to ash.
The DART makes this process easy as can be. All you have to do is hit the ash ejector button!
This is much easier than traditional one hitter pipe options where you would have to tap the bowl end a few times to clear it out or blow back through the mouthpiece to help clear the bowl (or sometimes both!).
And that’s it!
Now you are ready to either reload and repeat or stash it away for a future smoke session.
How To Clean A One Hitter
So you know how to use a one hitter, but how do you clean it?
Worry not! Cleaning your one hitter is a pretty easy process, and you most likely have all the supplies you’ll need to do so right at home.
Gather Your Supplies
You’ll need just a handful of supplies to give your one hitter a good and thorough clean!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Sealable bag (like a ziplock sandwich bag)
- Some 91% or 99% isopropyl alcohol
- Coarse salt
- Hot water
- Pipe cleaner or pipe cleaning kit
Before you get started, go ahead and take apart your one hitter if it is made up of multiple pieces.
The DART One Hitter makes this an easy process. Just unscrew the ash ejector and remove the inner core from the outer shell.
If you are using a traditional one hitter, double check that the bowl is cleared of any extra ash that might be hanging around.
Put It In Your Baggie
Place your one hitter in your sealable bag and add in some isopropyl alcohol.
You’ll want to add enough alcohol to submerge your one hitter (assuming it is lying along the bottom of the bag). The isopropyl alcohol will act as a disinfecting agent in your cleaning.
Next, add a tablespoon of coarse salt to the bag. The salt will act like a sponge, scrubbing away the tar build up on your pipe.
After the salt, add a few ounces of hot water to the bag. This will increase the amount of liquid to help create some force in the following step.
And finally, seal your bag (and make sure it is sealed tight!).
Shake Your Bag
And now for the critical step - give your bag a good shake!
Shaking your bag will help the salt, isopropyl alcohol and hot water go to work, fighting away all the gunk and germs that have accumulated on and in your pipe.
You’ll want to keep shaking for a few minutes to make sure you are getting a good clean (and of course go for longer if you’ve REALLY let the tar build up!).
After you’ve shaken to your heart’s content, let your pipe soak in the bag for another 5 minutes or so.
Rinse & Check
When you’re done with your soak, give your pipe a good rinse to remove the cleaning solution.
Check your one hitter to make sure you got all the build up off. If you see any stragglers, grab your pipe cleaner or cleaning kit and give any gunky areas a good little scrub.
Go ahead and give your pipe another rinse to make sure you removed any build up and cleaning solution.
Lastly, make sure you properly dry your pipe! This will help prevent any mold build up on your dank device.
Once your pipe is nice and dry, you are done!
Easy Cleaning With Ash Ejector
The DART’s ash ejector button makes the cleaning process so much easier than for traditional one hitters.
Because of this design, the DART’s One Hitter has less tar and resin build up within the pipe since the ash is getting fully removed between bowls.
This makes cleaning the DART’s One Hitter pipe much easier and less frequent!
Different Types Of One Hitter Pipes
Before you choose the right one hitter for you, it’s good to educate yourself on the different options and accessories available!
While the word “chillum” is often used interchangeably with “one hitter,” a chillum is actually a specific style of one hitter pipe.
Chillums have a cone shaped bowl that is slightly larger compared to the traditional one hitter, which has a straight tubular shape.
Since the bowl on the chillum is a smidge larger, you’ll get an extra hit or two off this pipe.
A dugout is basically a carrying case for your one hitter and some ground up green.
The traditional dugout is made out of a wooden container that has two separate sections “dug out” of the wood.
One section holds your one hitter and the other holds a few bowls worth of your bud.
If you’ve ever been in a headshop, chances are high you’ve seen a glass pipe.
These are a cannabis culture classic when it comes to smoking apparatuses.
Glass one hitters are known for their artsy glasswork designs, making these pipes more of a visual statement than a discreet weed pipe option.
They are good for when you want to take one or two quick hits around the house, but be careful taking these one on the go with you! You’ll want to be very mindful walking around with a glass one hitter in your pocket or purse, since its fragile and slender design makes it easy to break.
The transparent or translucent designs on glass one hitters will make it easy to see when you have a good amount of tar or resin build up and need to give your pipe a good clean. The smooth surface of the inner core of the pipe will make it easy to wash away any grime.
If you decide to get a glass one hitter, try to find one that has a silicone casing on it. This will help prevent breakage and will add a layer of discretion when you are out and about.
Glass one hitters heat up, so having a silicone case will also help give you some heat protection while you smoke.
If you are looking for a one hitter that is both lightweight and durable, then a metal one hitter is going to be the best option for you.
While some builds can be a bit intricate, most metal one hitters come in a sleek design, making them easy to tuck in your pocket, in your purse, or up your sleeve.
They also blend in a lot better when you are out in public, often easily mistaken for a vape pen or even a cigarette (depending on which design you go with).
Metal one hitters are easy to clean, thanks to their smooth surface material. They are even easier to clean if you get one, like the DART One Hitter, that has an ash ejector button.
One thing to keep an eye out for when shopping metal one hitters is to make sure you find one that is heat resistant, or else you’ll find your pipe heating up on you quick!
