As summer winds down, many of Missouri’s college students and instructors are getting ready to head back to campus. If you are a state resident with your medical marijuana card, you probably already know how helpful cannabis can be with the pressures of student life.
Marijuana can help you focus on those stressful assignments and all-consuming extracurriculars. It can also help ease the anxiety that comes with college life. From maintaining personal relationships to making good grades, to having to make big decisions about your career - being a student is extremely stressful. You may even be surprised to find that many students are discovering medical marijuana can be an effective study aid.
For the discerning student who is also a cannabis patient, we’ve put together a back to school guide featuring our recommendations for supplies that go beyond notebooks and backpacks. Here is our list of recommended cannabis accessories to help make this school year the best one yet.
Smell-Proof Storage Container
Having proper storage for your medical marijuana is important, not only because it keeps your cannabis fresh and mold-free, but also because properly stored cannabis keeps its potency longer.
If you’re living in a dorm room, you’ll want to make sure you aren’t advertising your marijuana to the entire campus. We recommend having a smell-proof storage container, like this stash jar from Session. It has an airtight silicone lid, UV-resistant glass, separate compartments to hold extra parts and pieces and even a built-in bowl stand.
Turn Any Plastic Bottle Into a Gravity Bong With the Smoking Steel
Let’s face it - having a large bong in your dorm room is a little conspicuous. Although marijuana is legal for any Missouri resident who has a medical card, your campus dorm regulations might not be up-to-date and nothing spills the beans quite like a huge bong sitting out in the open when you R.A. swings by for a surprise visit.
The Smoking Steel, made by AC Greebs will allow you to convert pretty much any plastic bottle into a gravity bong. It’s small, easy to use, and only costs about $35.
College life is full of social activities. That means you probably aren’t just going to be enjoying your medical marijuana in your apartment or dorm room. If you’re going to be taking your cannabis on-the-go, you’ll want to make sure you aren’t advertising the fact that you have it on you, especially walking around your campus.
This Stashlogix Durango Locking Smell Proof Sling Bag is ideal for transporting your stash without letting everyone on campus know what you’re carrying. At $55, it costs more than a typical fanny pack, but it’s a worthwhile investment. It features an odor-blocking zipper and Eco-PVC lining, with internal compartments and dividers created to keep your marijuana and and accessories organized during travel.

Make Your Own Dorm Room Infusions with a Decarboxylator
You can make your own edible treats from the comfort of your dorm room. The Ardent Life decarboxylator retails for about $200 on Amazon. Consider it an investment that your future self will thank you for!
The decarboxylator is probably the easiest, most mess-free way to make infusions, such as cannabis oils, cannabutter, and other infusions. By the way, if you are looking for some great marijuana-infused dorm room recipes, we love these recipes from Cannabis Cheri. Speaking of recipes, don’t forget to check out our recipe to make your own cannabutter.
Invest in an Air Filter
If you’re smoking in your dorm room or off-campus apartment, the smell of cannabis smoke can seep into your furniture and clothes. One of the best investments you can make is to purchase a good air purifier, especially if you are in an apartment or larger space. There is a wide selection of air purifiers on the market, and you can find something to fit most budgets - from around a hundred dollars to more than a thousand.
If you’ve got some money to burn when that student loan check comes in, you may want to consider spending a few hundred to keep your air clean and your clothes smelling fresh. A mid-range air purifier we recommend is the Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 ultra quiet air purifier, which retails for $369.95. It was recently named 2021’ “Best Air Purifier for Weed Smoke” by HVAC Training 101.
We realize that if you are living in a dorm room, having an expensive air purifier may seem like overkill. Don’t worry - we’ve got you covered. If you’re in the dorms, we recommend that you get yourself a Sploofy. The Sploofy is a personal smoke filter with replaceable cartridges. At just $17.99, it is considerably less expensive than an air purifier. Simply exhale into a Sploofy and your marijuana smoke will be converted into clean air.
