Stash Jars & Grinders- Essential Tools for Smokers

Herb Grinders can be used to grind up condensed flower into a finer smokable product. The grinder is easy to use, simply open the magnetic top lid, place the bud in the middle, close the lid and grind with both hands. The grinder will do the job. Carefully open and deposit the ground herb into a safe container. The grinder has a screen that will filter out the finer powder and let it settle in the base of the grinder. You can access this through the bottom lid.

Stash jars are great for storing dried herb in a smell proof container. Some of our stash jars have child proof locking lids and are 100% smell proof. Our Bamboo Stash Jar even has black glass, which preserves bud in the safest environment.

Dugout Maintenance for Slider Lids and Swivel Lids

Slider Lids can be tight. If yours is too tight for your liking, simply remove the lid and sand down the edges. If you don’t own sandpaper, we have a DugoutKing Repair Kit in our storefront with sand paper and two spare lids. Sand carefully and sparingly!

Swivel Lids come with a allen key for tightening. This ensures that your dugout will remain tight and closed while in use.

Dugout Size Guide

Dugout & One Hitter Size Guide

We carry 3″ and 4″ tall dugouts. The 3″ dugouts can accommodate a 2″ one hitter. The 4″ dugouts can accommodate a 3″ one hitter. Most of our listings have a drop down menu with the one hitter options, so you don’t have to worry, we size the dugout and one hitters for you. If you are ordering separately, please note this size chart and order accordingly. If you are ordering a one hitter to fit in your own dugout that was NOT purchased through our shopfront, we cannot guarantee that it will fit. Not all dugouts are made equally!

What is a Dugout?

A dugout is a crafted piece of wood that has two compartments. The first for storing dried tobacco or fine herbs, and the second to hold the spring loaded one hitter cigarette bat. These two compartments are secured by a swivel or slider lid. This small discreet smoking device is popular with all kinds of smokers, from festival goers to outdoor types and travelers. It is easy to transport and one can conveniently consume their favorite dried herbs without the hassle of having sub standard storage. It is also a very efficient and eco friendly way to consume fine herbs and tobacco. The one hitter pipe pops up when you open the lid of the dugout. You take it out, put the bowl tip in the compartment with your dried herbs and grind it in order to pack the bowl. This provides an efficient one hit experience. The pipe does need cleaning from time to time. I use a paper clip, extended out with water and a paper towel to clean out the resin. In order to fill your dugout with dried herbs, I recommend purchasing a small herb grinder. I have plenty in stock in my smoke shop store front. Grind a little amount of the herb in the grinder, tip it out onto a tabletop or sheet of paper, and funnel it into the dugout compartment. Dugouts provide an easy system to store and enjoy your dried herbs.

What is so special about Pro 420 scissors?

420 scissors have many design features that professional trimmer’s are searching for in an ideal scissor.

  • Straight needle tip blades that help the trimmer make precision cuts.
  • Spring Loaded action to reduce strain on the hand (PRO 420 Spring Loaded Model)
  • Non-stick coating on the blades to reduce resinous build up.
  • Comfortable handles for longer sessions.
  • Affordable price-Wholesale pricing available
  • Curved Blade feature (Classics Model)

Which pair should I choose?

Easy answer – both!
After years of speaking with professional trimmers, we have concluded that everyone has their preference. Some people trim for hours at a time and prefer Spring Loaded scissors. The spring loaded action reduces strain on the hand.

Many professional trimmers love the control of the straight tip Classic scissor. They can control each cut and make more precision trims to make each bud a masterpiece.

We recommend both pairs, the spring loaded are more durable for making cuts on the stalk and large shade leaves while the straight tip manual scissors are ideal for trimming the smaller leaves.

I’ve harvested the plant, now what do I do?

Well, you can either hang it to dry and then trim it, or trim it wet. From years of experience, I can tell you that dry trimming is a lot easier and does not gum up the scissors as much as trimming the plant wet. Some people will argue that the plant will dry faster with its head leaves and stalks removed, which is true. But if you are not in a rush, then drying the plant first will make for easier trimming. It all comes down to the quantity you have to dry, the space you have for drying and the quality of the finished product.

Wait a minute, I thought Pro 420 scissors were non-stick?

They are, with a special non-stick coat to help reduce the resinous buildup. However, Marijuana is incredibly sticky and resinous and you are sure to find black oily residue on the blades after continued use. Simply scrape off this resin and store it by itself. Once dried, it is a very potent by- product of the plant.

How many pairs of Pro 420 scissors do I need to get the job done?

We recommend that you buy the package deal for the most economical purchase. When you are in full swing with trimming, you do not want to have to stop and clean your scissors every 5 minutes. Therefore, having several pairs of Pro 420 scissors will keep your work flow going. Once your scissors have become resinous, simply place them in a jar of rubbing alcohol, let them soak for a few minutes, remove them and wipe them down before resuming. Having two pairs allows you to continue your work uninterrupted.

What should I do with all of the leaves I have trimmed off the bud?

The large shade leaves usually do not contain a lot of crystals, which means they are not very potent. However, the smaller leaves, especially the tiny leaves close to the flowers contain high amounts of THC and therefore are very potent. They can be dried and stored and used in baking recipes, or used in vaporizers, as you like!

How do other cultures harvest this plant?

This is an interesting question. Through years of travel around the world, we have discovered that the marijuana plant is harvested in a number of ways. For instance, in certain places where it is not being sold commercially, growers are not that concerned about appearance and will leave most of the leaves on the plant. In other circles, every single leaf is cut at the base, leaving a very fine product. In Morocco, where they grow fields of Marijuana, they dry the plants and then push them through sieves to create hash. In India, they rub the wet plant with their palms to create Charas. It all depends on what sort of product you want and the quantity of plants you are dealing with.

So what’s the verdict? Fiskar’s vs PRO 420 Spring Loaded Scissors

Side by side, there are a lot of similarities. However, the PRO420 is noticeably heavier and a little bit longer. The Pro 420 is easier to maneuver, offers a smoother cut and spring action, has a more solid spring compartment and has much more comfortable handles, with a TPR plastic grip on the side giving you more flexibility.

The PRO420 also has non-stick black blades, while the Fiskar’s brand offers no resistance to the sticky resin that the Cannabis plant is notorious for. Let’s put it this way, Fiskar’s are marketing a cheap blade for retirees to cut their roses and the PRO420 is delivering a solid professional product specifically for trimming marijuana. Not that we are bias or anything…
