From Bouqé—a cannabis-centric brand that’s dedicated to elevating the ritual of rolling and smoking—the African Violets Rolling Tray features the flower with the brand’s logo bursting through the blossoms. Indigenous to Tanzania and Kenya, the vibrant purple African Violet symbolizes modesty, devotion and love. It is deeply connected with feminine energy. Spiritually aligned with positivity, the flower presents the perfect motif for an enjoyable smoking session. This tin dish measures five by seven inches.
From Edie Parker founder and designer Brett Heyman’s playful but sophisticated cannabis-centric line, called Flower, this Boobs on Drugs tote riffs on the iconic anti-drug PSA from the ’80s, but with a decidedly less bleak approach. Aware of the injustice of the prison system—specifically historical cannabis incarcerations—the label promises 15% of the profits from the Boobs on Drugs collection will be donated to the Women’s Prison Association, an organization that strives to protect and empower women who have been incarcerated. They do this through assistance in finding safe and affordable housing, offering ways to develop workplace skills, working with families regarding reunification and more. Working with women before their release, the organization prepares them for a more fulfilling and positive future.
Daughter Of The Land’s CBD Lavender bath soak blends epsom and French grey salts, incorporating 80 anti-inflammatory trace minerals and magnesium. Along with full-spectrum CBD and lavender, vetiver and rose geranium oils, it’s a blend intended to soothe muscles and heighten relaxation. Packaged in 100% compostable material, this hemp-derived formula is made with organic and Certified Fair Trade ingredients.
Cat-themed rolling papers from the kitsch, punk and very playful online brand Wacky Wacko, MANEATERS are just as fun and unique as the shop’s other products. The 40 premium rolling papers in each package are the standard size of one-and-one-fourth inches—not dissimilar to RAW Organic rolling papers. Each is made from unrefined wood pulp that is 100% organic and 100% true hemp.
Whether in use or placed about the home, this charming 100% borosilicate cherry fruit pipe makes a statement. Its simple yet delicate design is emblematic of its maker, Flower by Edie Parker, an NYC-based brand founded by Brett Heyman. The whimsical pipe, while endearing on its own, also complements the brand’s banana, grape and orange pipes, so that when they’re placed together, they create the ultimate, high-concept fruit bowl.
Durable and easy to clean, Session’s tapered bong blends minimalist style with function-forward design. Thick borosilicate glass ensures longevity, while the indent provides an ergonomic grip. It comes with two different sized bowls and two stems. The practical silicone footer (available in charcoal, moonlight, indigo, celery, blush, horizon or paradise colorways) protects the bottom of the glass from damage, hides water while indicating the ideal water line, and absorbs sound when placing it on a table.
The Chenile Patch $ativa bag from Sundae School is just as playful and chill as the other clothing and accessories from the brand—a craft cannabis-centric company founded by siblings Cindy and Dae Lim. The 100% cotton tote, measuring 15 by 20 inches, uses a multicolored strap and includes a floral accent. On one side, the bag reads “SATIVA” in bubbly, cloud lettering; on the other side is Sundae School’s logo.
Since all of these heart-shaped pipes and dishes are handmade by Niki at Buenos Aires-based Rompotodo, no two are exactly alike and each one includes little idiosyncrasies. This makes them charmingly unique, while a shiny glaze ties the matching set—available in mustard, black, pink, lavender or mint—together. Food-safe and lead-free, the pipe fits perfectly within the dish. And, as with all products by Burning Love, 1% of the sales from the Mustard Heart Pipe and Dish Set go to the Last Prisoner Project in an effort to release those incarcerated for cannabis offenses.
Crafted from borosilicate glass, this handmade rose pipe features thorns and leaves that are perfectly placed for use. Despite its lavish appearance, the pipe is a traditional size, though it boasts a deeper bowl. Available in several colorways, the navy option is both elevated and a little off-kilter. Nashville-based Burning Love also participates in the Aurora James 15% Pledge—wherein at least 15% of brands in their store are owned by women of color.
From CBD brand Feals, this Good Feals Kit includes a reusable bag, 500-piece puzzle and 600mg CBD tincture. Made from high-quality fractionated medium-chain triglyceride oil (naturally found in foods like coconut oil) and hemp cannabinoid extract, the tincture is unflavored and aims to reduce pain, stress and anxiety. Most importantly, 100% of net proceeds will be donated to Painted Brain—an LA-based mental health non-profit that focuses on community, offering art workshops, occupational therapy and more.
Nevada City-based, queer-owned Stone Road (whose sun-grown flowers grow on a 57-acre off-grid farm) makes high-quality cannabis products that are beautifully packaged. The brand’s pre-rolls, available in several different strains, are a standout. Five 0.7g joints come in each box, and our favorite so far is Black Jack—which contains 16.72% THC and 1.88% CBD. It’s a hybrid that’s ideal for reducing pain and increasing relaxation, and is equally enjoyable on an outdoor adventure as it is working on an at-home creative endeavor. Plus, for the month of April, the brand is donating 10% of all proceeds to the Trevor Project, which focuses on supporting LGBTQ youth.
Composed of WeedSport’s custom blend of hand-harvested Sel Gris salt, Dead Sea salt with high minerality, magnesium-rich Epsom salt and 150mg of cannabinoids, Dunk Zero muscle soak aims to refresh and restore. Each 12-ounce compostable bag—which adhere to Matek’s mission to minimize waste—comes with enough product for one or two baths, depending on desired personal use (a 20-minute soak is recommended, regardless). The gentle fragrance is inspired by coastal California forests.
Containing hemp-derived Delta 8 THC, these gummies from Reform Wellness can promote relaxation, alleviate nausea and offer a subtle high without the anxiety or intensity that can come from Delta 9 THC. Just one of the chemical compounds within the cannabis flower, Delta 8 THC is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, so these fruit-flavored treats are available more widely. Each tin contains 15 gummies, available in blueberry or strawberry, and 5mg or 10mg options. Additionally, Reform Wellness is committed to redistribution of wealth within the cannabis industry, which manifests in part as a referral program that provides immediate payments and royalties to users. They also donate 10% of all sales to the Last Prisoner Project.
G Pen’s Connect Vaporizer aims to make cannabis concentrate consumption easier by stripping the process of the typical butane torch and nail. A ceramic heating element reaches temperature in five seconds and patented reverse airflow technology produces smooth yet sizable draws. To use, one simply installs the Connect in place of a bowl—or where there is a glass-to-glass connection. Charging the included battery works easily as it attaches magnetically and can be removed without detaching the heating element. Three settings allow for customization, while a manual option encourages experimentation.
From High Falls Hemp, this CBD-infused lip balm is creamy but never feels tacky, sticky or greasy. Their NY-grown, full-spectrum CBD blends with natural beeswax for the formula; as well as coconut oil, sweet almond oil and essential oil of spearmint for plenty more nourishment. The rich formula also helps to reduce inflammation in damaged lips.
Colorado-based Veritas Farms’ CBD lip balm provides soothing short-term treatment that won’t dry your lips in the long-term. The full-spectrum hemp oil doesn’t give you a buzz, but your lips will be happy with an all-natural formula that works immediately and deeply. What you will notice is the tropical flavor; the orange cream balm is akin to a frozen sherbet push-pop.
