While there’s plenty of tech and innovation in the cannabis industry, sometimes a highly crafted and more decorative option can’t be overlooked. This ceramic bong from Doreen Sullivan’s My Bud Vase has a textured sand finish and a matte painted base—and easily doubles as a vessel for flowers. The red stripe and bowl seal the deal, making it a striking and covetable piece.
For those hoping to avoid burnt fingers, this glass joint holder (made by Cha Cha Chainz in collaboration with Elevate Jane) takes design notes from vintage cigarette holders while adding a contemporary twist.

Each piece is handblown in the USA and is available in various colors including gray, green, yellow, purple and pink.
Handmade from New Mexico clay by California-based artisan Jenny Mulder (the founder of Sister Ceramics), these minimal stash jars incorporate a food-safe glaze on the inside—making them the ideal container for anything organic.

It’s a collaboration between Ostberg, Piecework puzzles and the cherished cannabis-centric magazine Broccoli.

Latinx- and Black-owned CBD brand Xula produces a tincture meant to provide a sense of focus and relaxation all at once. Aptly called Ah!, the blend aids in bodily relaxation through a careful concoction of herbs, hemp, oils, and dried flowers. There’s 1000mg of CBD and 150mg of CBG present in the entire bottle, and doses includes 33mg and 5mg of each, respectively. Together, they tackle anxiety and muscle tension, while coconut-derived MCT oil helps with clarity. All of the included ingredients can also be studied in Xula’s ever-growing herbal index, a hub for medicinal research. To use, simply ingest half a dropper one to three times daily.

Available in rose quartz, howlite, obsidian or (our favorite) tourmaline quartz, Leaff’s crystal pipes offer more than a smoking vessel as each semi-precious stone boasts its own mystical properties. Tourmaline quartz, for instance, helps to balance Yin and Yang, while offering protection. Weighty in the hand, each pipe features a brass filter and comes with two extras for when it’s cleaning time. Be sure to follow advice for cleansing crystals too.

Emblazoned with the straightforward and factual “It’s a plant, you’re an animal,” this long-sleeve T-shirt from Miss Grass highlights the way that something born from nature has been stigmatized, racialized and demonized. With 100% of the profits donated to the National Bail Out Fund—an organization led by black people and focused on black people incarcerated pre-trial because they cannot afford bail—this top is more than a slogan.
This subtle but playful keychain by Tetra features a hexagonally shaped interior that’s the perfect size for a joint, so you can pre-roll and transport with ease and discretion.

The sale of every one of Mello’s products results in 10% of the proceeds going to the Last Prisoner Project, an important non-profit organization focusing on bringing justice to the cannabis industry by working to free people who are incarcerated for drug offenses—many of which are actually legal now.

Not only a tasty sweet treat, they also aim to provide benefit that include pain and anxiety relief, as well as help with sleep. Each box contains 20 caramels.
Taking the world of pod-based vaporizers up a notch, the Airgraft Clean Vaporizer starts with beautiful design. The device is minimal and elegant, as are the pods. The brand only works with thoroughly vetted farms to source the highest-quality single-origin extracts. We’re fans of Lava Flower from A Golden State.

It also addresses the racist, social justice failures that have plagued decades of marijuana policing.
