As a High Times reader, we’re going to assume that you’re already in possession of some basic smoking necessities: pipes, bongs, grinders, lighters, weed, etc. Honestly, you don’t need much more to have an amazingly smoky college experience.
But if you’re looking to take it up a notch, these ganjarific gadgets will transform your bleak student housing into a pothead utopia.
If you’re looking for an unparalleled vaporizer that will make even your RA jealous, then you’ll want to shell out the big bucks for a Volcano. Oh, wait, you’re a broke student without $600 to drop on a vape? No worries! Check out the High Times 2015 Vape Pen Buyer’s Guide to find the perfect (and portable) vape pen for any budget.
2. AC Greebs Smoking Steel
Gravity bongs are a pretty important part of the college experience, and this stainless steel piece will blow your friends’ minds by turning any plastic bottle into an efficient smoking device. The portable bowl delivers milky pulls, supposedly lasts forever, is easy to clean and won’t break the bank at only $29.
3. Smokeless Ashtray
Hopefully, you’ve already bought a bottle of Febreze, put a towel under your door and opened your windows—but sometimes even that’s not enough to fool your nosey (pun intended!) neighbor. If you intend to turn your dorm into a joint lover’s paradise, consider investing in a smokeless ashtray. The Capture Iconic Smokeless Ashtray is noiseless and filterless AND includes an adaptor because, let’s be real, the only batteries you have are already in your TV remote.
4. Rolling Machine
If you’re creating a stoner dorm room paradise and don’t know how to roll, then shame on you! Definitely try to brush up your skills (Watch our “How-To: Roll the Perfect Joint” Video!), but if you still can’t perfect your technique, then get yourself a rolling machine. At $4.75 (plus free shipping) on Amazon, the Zig Zag Rolling Machine is a cute, affordable option. For those that want to pack a lot of cones very quickly, we like the Raw Cone Shooter. Putting it on your parents’ tab? The $89.95 E3 Matic Electric Rolling Machine is an electric option that fills three joints at a time.
5. Digital Scale
It may seem like only dealers need scales, but whether you’re selling pot to your friends or not, having your own digital scale is essential for keeping your dealer honest. When money’s tight (and we know it is), you should make sure you’re getting all the bud you paid for. Depending on how much of an investment you want to make, you can find pockets scales on Amazon and other websites for anywhere between $20 and $60.
6. Smokebuddy Personal Air Filter
Keeping your dorm room odor-free should definitely be a priority for any student stoner. Exhale your smoke into your Smokebuddy (not a euphemism) and clean, odorless air comes out the other end. Your RA will have no clue that your entire floor has been smoking that stanky shit.
7. Wick Light
Not everyone wants to taste butane when they take a hit, and these Wick Lights will turn any mini lighter into a natural flame for $7.99. The organic hemp spool is refillable, making this gadget not only environmentally sustainable, but also budget-friendly—a must for student stoners.

A hand-held power tool to clean your pipe? If your dorm room is really the stoner paradise that all your friends flock to, then your pieces will surely get clogged fast. But no fear, the KashIt Clean is a portable, rechargeable vacuum designed to suck up ash. At $24.99 and with a mirco-USB charging port, this gadget was basically created with super student stoners in mind.
9. Cotton Mouth Candy
OK, including candy on this list might mean we’re playing fast and loose with the term “gadget,” but we’re pretty sure you and your friends will be glad you’ve stocked your dorm with these treats. Cotton Mouth Candy come in two flavors (fruit or sour) with approximately 33 pieces of all-natural candy in each bag for only $4.99. According to the company’s website, the candies were created by a Kung Fu Master who was concerned with smokers’ dry mouths—which may or may not be true, but is definitely a fun story to tell your friends over a bowl.
