Although not everyone’s familiar with this quite underrated yet effective weed accessory that was once very commonly used for smoking cannabis as well as tobacco, it’s undeniable that the dugout is making a comeback and is becoming popular in the cannabis scene yet again.
For those of you who are not familiar with the classic wooden one shot dugout, follow us as we take a look at an oldie but a goodie weed accessory and discuss what it is that made this product become popular again, along with its benefits in comparison to more modern utensils.
What’s a One-Shot Dugout?
One shot dugouts are easy to use weed pipes in a rectangular (or sometimes cylindrical) wooden case with a dugout system, and an aluminum cigarette-like bat.
They are quite discreet and inconspicuous which makes them convenient to use on the move. They are designed for a single inhalation and are especially handy when you don’t have time to roll up a joint.
The dugout has two compartments, one for the herb and one for the pipe, “one-hitter” or “bat”.
In comparison with the old dugouts, the newer models are available in numerous different shapes and sizes. Although the wooden dugout is the most popular one, because of its retro style, you can also find acrylic, aluminum, titanium and steel dugouts. Some of the modern dugouts come with a few accessories their old school counterparts didn’t have, like a grinder, lighter storage and poker storage.
Although the newer versions of the dugout might have a few new features, the old and simple wooden ones are also making a comeback, which proves that the old design is basically time proof.
Key Product Characteristics and Benefits
Although there are many people out there who’ve decided to ditch the dugout and go with a modern pipe case for one-hitters, pipes & chillums, somehow the old school dugout has managed to make a comeback, and has seen a huge increase in popularity especially among people who are into retro gadgets of the past.
Here are some of the key product characteristics of the dugout that make it a product of today that can compete with modern utensils:
- Unique and special product
- Portable and discreet
- Efficient and easy to use
- Unlike old school dugouts, the new and modern pipe cases are smell proof, and allow you to carry multiple strains of cannabis as they have multiple compartments
- The dugouts only hold a gram of ground cannabis
- Although they are great for when you’re on the go, they are not suitable for group smoking as they need to be refilled all the time, unlike a bowl that can be passed around from one person to the next
These are just some of the main characteristics of the dugout you need to consider when choosing a smoking device, so that you can make a choice that’s right for you.
