A dugout is a small, portable device used for discreetly storing and smoking cannabis. It is a compact container typically made of wood or metal that resembles a small box or tube. The dugout consists of two main compartments: one for storing ground cannabis, and the other for a one-hitter or bat-style pipe.
Here’s how a dugout typically works:
- Storage Compartment: The larger compartment of the dugout is designed to hold a small amount of ground cannabis. This compartment is usually equipped with a spring-loaded mechanism or a simple sliding lid to keep the cannabis securely in place.
- One-Hitter or Bat: The smaller compartment of the dugout is specially designed to hold a one-hitter or bat-style pipe. A one-hitter is a small pipe with a narrow bowl that holds a single hit or “one hit” of cannabis. It is typically made of metal or glass and has a mouthpiece on one end and a bowl on the other.
- Usage: To use a dugout, the user typically slides open the storage compartment, takes a small amount of ground cannabis, and packs it into the bowl of the one-hitter. They then place the mouthpiece end of the one-hitter to their lips and ignite the cannabis with a lighter or a match. The user inhales the smoke through the mouthpiece, typically taking a single hit or a small puff.
Dugouts are popular among individuals who prefer a discreet and convenient way to consume cannabis while on the go. They are often used for quick, on-demand hits and are favored by those who want to avoid the bulkiness and attention associated with larger smoking devices.
Some advantages of using a dugout include:
- Portability: Dugouts are compact and easily fit into a pocket or a small bag, making them highly portable and convenient for travel or discreet use.
- Efficiency: Dugouts are designed to hold a small amount of ground cannabis, which helps users control their dosage and conserve their supply.
- Discretion: The small size and discreet design of a dugout allow users to consume cannabis without drawing much attention. They can quickly take a hit and conceal the device in their hand or pocket.
- Convenience: With a dugout, users have all they need in one compact package – the storage compartment for cannabis and the one-hitter for smoking, eliminating the need for additional accessories.
