Paraphernalia, 35 years later

I had a buddy tell me that the term “spliff” means something a little different Amsterdam coffee shops. The weed was really good and regulars would roll joints with a little bit of tobacco with a filter to mellow the high.

***I just hit the googlizer up and it does mean this in Europe, but the term originated in Jamaica and it’s straight weed there.

1974 my sophomore year for me.

I smoked hand rolled cigarettes for decades and became adept at rolling. Much easier now using hemp papers instead of that fragile rice paper.

That’s the year I started, give or take a year or 2.

I remember the head shops. Albums, paraphernalia, incense,… Fun times.

Smoked my first joynt on my 18th birthday and have never looked back. I remember buying a five finger bag of Mexican weed for fifteen bucks and then you had to smoke 5 joynts to get a buzz. Thank god for great genetics. And if you got caught with that in 1973 you would definitely go to jail. O my how the times they are a changing. Can anyone Suggest a strain of weed that can actually get me high I mean I get buzzed but I haven’t gotten high in years. Laughing my ass off

I believe the term originated in the Caribbean. The rastas call joints that and they are usually conical in shape

I got one of these.


I like it just fine. However, I wish I had spent just a little bit more on one of these.

Paired with one of these.

The pressure gauge would help alot in insuring I am getting everything I want and none of the lipids and plant waxes that can come with over squeezing.
To fix that issue I may just do this.

369.00 for the one I got.
469.00 (press) + 139.00 (pump) for the one I wish I had gotten. If you go to the dabpress website they sell refurbished ones for a bit cheaper.
I would have gone that route but Amazon has screwed me on every referb purchase I have ever made, so I dont do refurbished any longer, from anyone.

Just found the website, they range from 170 for the smallest version, around 250-350 for a light duty, and 500+ for the best they offer

These raw cone papers with the hard tips are amazing. Used my new grinder and then tried two of them and loved them! So easy to pull in a puff!

So I just bought a pack of 100 on Amazon for $25.

Better than I can roll a joint for sure. Is this cheating??? :thinking:

I started rolling around a pencil, then pack it! Until I learned. I use business cards as filters, can get 2 from a bottom cut and 7 or 8 along the edge. Push them in and then unroll with the scissors to get a tight open tube. When folks retire from work I used to grab the box of their cards, lifetime supply!
One of those would last me less than a month!
