For those who like to share their weed but not other people’s germs, the “MouthPeace” is just what the doctor ordered.
This strange-looking but surprisingly versatile tool is made of 100% platinum cured silicone and comes with a clip-on lanyard for smoking on the go.
Flexible and tapered, the MouthPeace fits in almost any bong, creates a good seal and helps prevent splashback.
If joints are your thing, no problem: just put the joint in the smaller end and toke off the wider end.
Jayson Heustis, a budtender at True Dank in Fairbanks, said the Mouthpeace’s multiple uses make it a popular item.
“They’re definitely cool. You can also put your vape pen in there and hit that out of a water pipe. So it’s got a lot of different functions besides just putting it in a bong.”
When asked if he uses one, Heustis smiled.
“I’m not that worried about germs, but I might use one if I was going to a big festival with a bunch of people that I don’t know.”
Each MouthPeace is BPA-free and dishwasher safe. The MouthPeace can be purchased online or at cannabis retailers statewide. Prices range from $12.50 to $15.
