The Best Cannabis Accessories, According to GP Readers

Last week, we asked GP readers a simple question: what are the most useful cannabis accessories? Through a thicket of submissions from Bob Marley and Willie Nelson, some seriously insightful picks shown through. From the first smart bong to the difference between 91 percent and 70 percent isopropyl, these are GP readers’ favorite pot accessories.

Paperclips

“Does everything, folds into any shape. Clean bowls, tighten up joints. Makeshift grinder, just pinch against buds. Costs nothing. The perfect tool.” —AB

Buy Now: $2

91 Percent Isopropyl alcohol

“I don’t smoke a lot but when I do I like to use a bubbler. Bubblers need to be clean and are at the same time notoriously difficult to clean (due to their small size and fixed stem). 91 percent iso (not the 70 percent stuff you use for disinfectant) is the key; after every couple of sessions, I take an ounce or two of iso and swish it around vigorously in my pipe just rinse with hot water and let it air dry. Works like a champ and costs practically nothing.” —Rob

Buy Now: $3+

Mr. Brog Tobacco Pipe Tool

“Comes with three tools, a pick, which can be used for cleaning the bowl piece, a tamper used to pack down flower and a spoon, which can be used to load the bowl. Though this tool is not designed expressly for marijuana use, it works exceptionally well. It has become an indispensable accessory in any smoke session.” —Duncan

Rowll Classic Rolling Kit

“Has everything you need on the go: paper, filters, hand grinder (which works amazing) and a pouch to stash your weed. All this in a compact slim magnetic sealing kit.” —Brian

Anova Nano Sous Vide Circulator

“Much like how hangovers get worse as you age, cannabis has made me more anxious and paranoid as I age. Maybe it’s just the quality of bud out there, but whenever I smoke a joint or hit a bowl these days, I get way too baked. Rather than flat out quitting, I turned to my Sous-Vide circulator. I now make batches of THC-infused coconut oil and put about a teaspoon in my morning coffee and evening tea. It’s one step above a micro-dose, and it makes me just very happy and creative.” —Colin

Da Vinci Miqro Vaporizer

“It’s tiny, gets hot fairly quick, and allows you to vary bowl size, so you can microdose pretty easily. It also has removable parts for easy cleaning.” —John

Evolab Colors

“Flavored and available in disposable stick or cartridge. This is the easiest way to ease into weed usage. Un-intimidating for beginners, fun and simple for the experienced who don’t want any hassle, discrete for those who don’t want judgment.” —Travis

Haze V3

“It has separate compartments to pack materials, allows you to vaporize cannabis in a variety of forms and has accurate temperature control. It’s a powerful little machine that lets me conserve my materials and get the same effects I expect from other ingestion methods.” —Morgan

Puffco Peak

“The Puffco Peak is the first ever portable electric dab rig or ‘smart bong.’ It heats cannabis concentrate to the perfect temperatures for the perfect vape experience.” —Evan

Carboxys are the enemy of the amateur cannabis chef. Here’s how to get rid of them.

Top of Wednesday lineup a preview of Astros’ batting order vs. righties

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The top of A.J. Hinch’s Grapefruit League lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Yankees was a “pretty good example” of how the manager will maneuver his batting order against righthanded pitching during the season.

As has been customary late in spring, Hinch penciled Michael Brantley into the cleanup spot behind three-hole hitter Alex Bregman. George Springer led off and Jose Altuve hit second.

Hinch joked he “hasn’t hated” the results. Brantley entered Wednesday with a .406 on-base percentage in 12 Grapefruit League games while Bregman had seven hits in 23 plate appearances.

ON TEXAS SPORTS NATION: New Astro Michael Brantley lets his play do the talking

“When you describe a really good hitter, he has so many attributes,” Hinch said of Brantley, who signed a two-year free agent deal in the offseason.

“I think he’s going to help. Having him and Bregman back-to-back, which is what I’m likely to do, (puts) two of the best contact hitters and swing decision guys. It’s a really tough middle of the order to get through.”

Brantley, a lefthanded hitter, would likely flip with Carlos Correa against a lefthanded starting pitcher. Correa hit fifth on Wednesday in West Palm Beach while Yuli Gurriel swung sixth.

The Astros will face Rays southpaw Blake Snell on opening day, ostensibly sending Brantley to the five-hole.

PHOTO RELEASE–Newport News Shipbuilding Engineers Named Virginia Peninsula Engineer of the Year and Young Engineer of the Year

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced today that the Peninsula Engineers Council named Michael Reilley and Daniel Hebert Virginia Peninsula Engineer of the Year and Young Engineer of the Year, respectively. The Newport News Shipbuilding employees were recognized at the group’s annual banquet on Sunday.

Reilley, Newport News’ chief engineer, began his shipbuilding career in 1984. He has held a range of engineering and leadership positions supporting the construction and overhaul of aircraft carriers and submarines. He most recently served as the propulsion plant director during the successful trial and delivery of USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78).

“Having worked with him for more than 25 years, I know Mike to be an excellent technical leader as well as a community- and family-oriented individual,” said Charles Southall, Newport News’ vice president of engineering and design. “He is dedicated to causes larger than himself and is highly regarded by his colleagues at Newport News Shipbuilding, the U.S. Navy and community.”

In his current role, Reilley leads a staff of experts and is recognized as the technical authority in various disciplines. Reilley is a licensed professional engineer who holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from West Virginia University and a master’s in engineering management from the George Washington University. He also has served as the vice chair for the eastern Virginia section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Virginia Tech’s Department of Mechanical Engineering Advisory Board.

Hebert, who began working at Newport News in 2008, received the Doug Ensor Award. The award is named after the founder of the Peninsula Engineers Council and recognizes the early accomplishments of an engineer under 35 with less than 15 years of experience.

Hebert serves as the research and development program lead in additive manufacturing and helped pioneer the qualification of 3-D metal printing in naval shipbuilding. His work helped lay the foundation for a significant technical milestone in the industry: the installation of the first 3-D-printed metal part of a nuclear-powered vessel.

“In a short time, Dan has distinguished himself as an asset to our company,” Southall said. “He sets the example for his peers. He is enthusiastic, energetic and an adept engineer. Dan has a bright future ahead of himself.”

Hebert, who has two patents pending in the area of additive manufacturing, holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Gannon University and a master’s in engineering management from the George Washington University. He serves as the secretary for the eastern Virginia section of ASME.

“The Peninsula Engineers Council’s purpose is to strengthen and promote the engineering profession on the Virginia Peninsula,” said Vanessa Aubuchon, president of the Peninsula Engineers Council. “Mike and Dan have impressive careers and have proven themselves to be outstanding models of a long history of engineers in the area. They uphold the values of the engineering profession by doing what is best for their community and holding themselves to a high technical bar. It is a pleasure to recognize these two individuals at the PEC awards banquet. The PEC congratulates these two individuals on a job well done.”

Formed in 1970, the Peninsula Engineers Council comprises representatives from organizations dedicated to strengthening and promoting the engineering profession in the Virginia Peninsula area. The member organizations consist of 18 local chapters of engineering and technical societies, a local science and education foundation, and two government organizations.

Huntington Ingalls Industries is America’s largest military shipbuilding company and a provider of professional services to partners in government and industry. For more than a century, HII’s Newport News and Ingalls shipbuilding divisions in Virginia and Mississippi have built more ships in more ship classes than any other U.S. naval shipbuilder. HII’s Technical Solutions division provides a wide range of professional services through its Fleet Support, Mission Driven Innovative Solutions, Nuclear & Environmental, and Oil & Gas groups. Headquartered in Newport News, Virginia, HII employs more than 40,000 people operating both domestically and internationally. For more information, visit:
