It always helps to have a map when you start a journey. At CBD Kratom, we strive to provide you with the support and direction you need to live your best life. While many of our customers are well-versed in cannabis and kratom knowledge, we understand that everyone must start somewhere. If you’re canna-curious and not sure where to start, this post is for you!

Breaking into cannabis usage may seem daunting as there are many, many options for partaking. We’ll cover some of the most common, and suggest products that can assist with your exploration.


Whether you call it flower, herb, bud (or something else!), flower is one of the most popular methods of partaking cannabis. Often, flower is available in bud or nug form, which means it is dried and clumped up together and can be purchased in different sizes or weights. Flower must be ground in order to be smoked properly, and then can be used in a variety of ways and with a range of accessories. If you’re looking to partake with flower but would like to do so immediately, snag a pre-roll. Just as their name suggests, you can purchase pre-assembled joints or rolls filled with your favorite ground bud. Or if you still want to pack your own flower grab pre-made cones for easy filling with your flower.

We carry a variety of flower, both pre-rolled and loose:

Smoking Accessories

So now you have a stash… what’s next? If your flower isn’t pre-ground, it’s time to reach for a grinder. Grinders are tools used to break down your flower into small pieces, allowing for easy packing in your smoking devices. For many, smoking accessories take the form of glass. You might be familiar with water pipes, a.k.a., “bongs,” and a few other pieces. While water pipes can be found in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, smaller pieces like spoons and chillums tend to be hand-sized and are easy to travel with. Looking for an even more convenient way to partake while on-the-go? Try a dugout—these smoking accessories consist of a slim box with hollow compartments to stash your ground flower and a small chillum-style piece.

Another popular method of partaking is using a vaporizer and a cartridge. A vaporizer, or vape, is a device that heats up oils or other concentrated forms of cannabis extract. Other common names for similar devices are batteries and straws. They can be found in a myriad of shapes, sizes, and colors—making it a choose your own adventure style way of enjoying cannabis. A benefit of many cartridges is that they retain the cannabis’ terpenes. Cannabis oil cartridges (like the ones we carry) often come in a 510 threaded design, which screws into a complementary vape device. Cartridges are offered in nearly as many strains as there are strains in the world, so you can pick and choose your indicas, sativas, and hybrids. You can also find them with just CBD or terpenes, as well as featuring many of the major cannabinoids.

Just like the name suggests, cannabis concentrates are distilled products that feature only the most beneficial parts of the cannabis plant. By excluding the unneeded parts of raw cannabis flower, you can achieve a greater concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes. Concentrates are mainly created by condensing down the plant’s trichomes, which are glands on the plant that excrete resin—a sticky substance that lends each plant its aromatic properties.

Examples of concentrates include hash, resin, kief, diamonds, and many more. Shop one of our options today:
