Information About Lighters
The cannabis-lover’s toolkit consists of many different items. Some are absolutely crucial to the smoking process, whereas others are more novel and a bit of fun. Lighters definitely fall into the former category.
Where would cannabis smokers be without the humble lighter? Maybe blazing bowls with flint and steel, or burning blunts with matches that spoil the taste. We have a lot to thank the lighter for. This basic but vital piece of kit makes smoking accessible with the flick of a flint wheel.
D IFFERENT TYPES OF CANNABIS LIGHTERS
Not all cannabis lighters are the same. With many different options available, every smoker has a favourite type. Some of them possess hidden and handy tools; others provide extreme heat capable of making metal glow red-hot. Let’s check out the different kinds of lighters and what makes them unique.
C LIPPER LIGHTER
Clipper lighters are the quintessential stoner lighter. They are simple and low-tech, yet boast several features that make them more useful than standard plastic lighters. Founded in 1959, the company Flamagas created these devices. However, they didn’t start producing their famous Clipper lighter until about a decade later.
Classic Clippers feature a cylindrical shape that tapers up slightly towards the top. The hard nylon body contains the lighter fluid and won’t crack like cheaper lighters. They’re also 100% recyclable, making them better for the environment.
Zamnesia Clipper Lighter
They come filled with pure isobutane, which produces less harmful emissions and creates a flame that burns at a higher rate. The bottom of each lighter features a port that allows users to refill it with gas.
The top of the lighter features a flint wheel and a gas release button. The flint wheel sits on top of a tube that users can remove from the interior of the lighter. Users can refill this tube with a flint when they run out. Plus, the tube makes an ideal tool for packing down joints after rolling.
Overall, Clipper lighters are cheap yet extremely handy. Because users can replace both gas and flint, a single lighter can last you years, considering one of your blazed friends doesn’t accidentally pocket it!
T ORCH LIGHTER
Torches are bulky pieces of kit that produce an incredibly hot jet-like flame. These gun-shaped devices are ideal for home use rather than blazing while out and about. Although they aren’t very portable, they sacrifice size for power.
Torches store large quantities of fuel, such as butane, and blast out a powerful flame ideal for burning large blunt tips and bong bowls. Torches are also ideal for dabbing. They’ll turn a dabbing nail red hot, ready to hit in no time at all.
Most models feature a large base and enable users to store them standing up. Torches also often feature a “lock” switch so users can take their hands off the gas button while dabbing and blazing. Torches are refillable with butane and are the best lighters to use if you like to hit big rigs every day.
E LECTRIC LIGHTER AKA PLASMA LIGHTER
Electric—or plasma—lighters use no gas and require no refills. These modern versions of the old-school lighter are far more reliable and operate well in windy conditions and harsh weather. Electric cannabis lighters don’t even produce a flame. Instead, they light joints by generating lines of electric energy.
For example, the Novi Plasma Lighter produces an electric “X” in place of a flame. Because they don’t use fuel, these lighters produce zero toxic chemicals. These intersecting lines of electricity produce an impressive temperature of 500°C. Ran out of power? Simply recharge your device using a USB cable.
Electric lighters are ideal for blazing joints, spliffs, and blunts. However, the lack of flame means they aren’t suitable for dabbing—they are the best lighters for those who like their tech, though.
Get your spliff burning with a lighter from Zamnesia. Zamnesia offers many basic lighters. We also offer deluxe, novelty, and turbo lighters.
Lighters for cannabis: here are five of the best
You might not need a lighter specifically designed for cannabis, but you’ll still want a good one
Whether or not you need a special lighter for firing up a joint is debatable, but having a good lighter in your arsenal is never a bad thing. Photo by Paul Bradbury / iStock /Getty Images Plus
Have you ever wondered whether you need a special lighter for cannabis, as opposed to, say, a run-of-the-mill Bic disposal that you would use to light a candle or (heaven forbid!) a cigarette?
We wondered, so naturally we googled it. And what we got was page after page of listicles, all purporting to inform the reader about the best lighters for cannabis. Listicles just like this one, in fact! And each one of them recommended such a broad range of products that we had to conclude that the answer to the above question is a resounding no.
Now that we have established that you don’t need a special lighter for firing up a joint, we should note that this doesn’t mean all lighters are created equal. You might not need one specifically designed for cannabis, but you’ll still want a good one.
What makes for a good lighter is purely subjective, of course. In our opinion, the best lighter for cannabis is one that is easy to use and works consistently. If it also looks cool, that’s a bonus. Here’s a short list of our picks, and they might just tick all of your boxes too.
Tesla Coil lighter
Yes, it has the name “Tesla” on it, but rest assured that Elon Musk had nothing to do with making this lighter—although it does look like the type of thing you might find in the glove box of a Cybertruck. This device is named after the pioneering Serbian-American engineer Nikola Tesla. He’s the dude who invented the electrical resonant transformer circuit that later became known as the Tesla coil. You’ll find one at every science museum on the planet, and not really anywhere else except in arc welders, where they function as igniters. They can also function as igniters of your weed. Find it here.

Miyare Wheel lighter
Remember The Wild Wild West? Depending on your age, it was either a TV show starring Robert Conrad or a Will Smith movie. In any case, it was essentially a steampunk western, and this lighter looks like something its protagonist, James West, might have carried around in his boot. Does that make it the best lighter for cannabis? Who knows, but it would make a very fine gift for anyone whose personal style draws more cues from Jules Verne than it does from Sincerely Jules.
