3 Surprising Things I Learned From Trying the World’s First Laser Bong

Using the Hitoki Trident.

When I found out I was going to get to review the Hitoki Trident, I was super excited. I heard about the laser bong through other cannabis influencers, and I couldn’t wait to try it myself. Once mine arrived, I wasted no time getting it set up and making a YouTube video. During the time I spent filming and trying the device, I learned a few things about it that I didn’t expect.

• The chamber that holds your herb doesn’t get hot

• You get several hits out of one bowl of flower

• It’s surprisingly easy to use

The chamber that holds your herb doesn’t get hot

This was a wild realization. Immediately after smoking a bowl with the Hitoki, I opened up the device to reveal the herb pod within. I carefully tried touching it with my knuckles, and once I realized it was cold, I was surprised. I reached in, pulled out the pod, cleaned it out with the provided poker tool, and packed it again. This means no time is wasted while waiting for things to cool down between hits. A game-changer, to be sure.

It’s economical – you get a lot of hits with just a little herb

Need I say more? Aren’t we all just trying to get the most out of our cannabis without wasting any? There is a high amount of smoke production for how little flower is required with this device. I was pleasantly surprised at the billowing clouds of smoke that came from this device the first time I used it.

It’s surprisingly easy to use

The Hitoki Trident is two main parts, the top and the bottom. I guess it’s three parts if you think about it. But it’s a pretty simple device in its setup. You have the water chamber and the herb pod, much like any other bong. There may be a learning curve if you’re not familiar with tech-forward cannabis devices, but I think it should be a pretty simple-to-use device for most people.

I see myself using the Hitoki Trident often in the near future. If you want to browse Hitoki’s products online, follow my affiliate link (I get a percentage of profits from sales made through the link, at no extra cost to you) here.

Trulieve begins carrying Muse vape cartridges

Trulieve has begun carrying Muse Live Sauz vape cartridges at all their Florida locations. At the time I’m writing this, there are four different strains in stock for delivery in my area: Skunk Ape, Granddaddy Purple, Grape Cake, and Mandarin Dream. The strain I picked up was Grape Cake, a strain I’ve had in flower before and enjoyed.

The first thing that I noticed about the Live Sauz cartridge product was the packaging. I love the modern and sleek look of the text on the box and the little bottle that the cartridge comes in.

The next thing I noticed was how smooth the contents of the cartridge are when vaped. I also noticed the natural tasting cannabis flavor that emanated from the cartridge.

Overall I’m really happy with the Live Sauz cart that I tried and look forward to seeing more from this brand at Trulieve.

Plants and pills aren’t mutually exclusive

We’ve heard it time and time again in the cannabis community: plants over pills! I absolutely think this saying has the spirit; after all, I for one am all for celebrating cannabis in just about any context, and if weed made you stop taking pills and that helped you? That’s awesome.

The thing that gets left out of plants over pills, though, is the idea that they can coexist in one’s life. And the people who use both cannabis and pills because they have to.

I’m definitely not saying you need both pills and plants in your life, or that anyone needs anything. I just know that there are some people who “find relief” from their symptoms through the use of a combination of herbal and traditional medicine. And I know because I’m one of them.

There was a time, shortly after I started using cannabis for medicinal purposes, that I decided to quit taking my prescribed medicines in an act of rebellion or something. An act of breaking free from big pharma, out of the grasp of these pills that I seemed to depend on. The thing is, I did depend on the pills I was taking then. They had been helping me, and when I went off of them, bad things happened. It took me months before I realized I couldn’t persist without certain medications.

It didn’t mean I had to stop using cannabis, necessarily. It just meant I needed to go back onto at least some of the medications I had been taking before. I decided I could live with that. I could live with taking certain prescribed meds, and I could keep using cannabis too. Why not?

All of this is to say, when it comes down to it, don’t let a saying like “plants over pills” sway you from doing what’s best for you. Everyone is unique, and we don’t all fit into the boxes that people set out for us. We don’t always do what people expect. And I have been using meds and cannabis together for several years now with positive results. Perhaps I’m one of the few, but I know I’m not the only one.
