For better or worse, weed-related products have gone from plastic baggies and ugly psychedelic head shop bongs to designer vaporizers and Goop-worthy botanical extracts. Marijuana is emerging from the skunky-smelling shadows, and whether you mourn the days when cannabis wasn’t so trendy and will look upon these luxury pot products with scorn or you’re thrilled by their sudden accessibility, you’re going to want to check them out and you might find the best gifts for weed smokers.
The Au Box & Club M Cannabis Subscriptions
There’s a subscription service for just about everything now – including cannabis-related products. The Au Box will send you a sophisticated black box full of edibles every month, while Club M offers ‘professionally curated mystery boxes’ full of smoking items like concentrates, vapes, and flowers. Both services emphasize luxury and start around $100 per month. The company has been working with a number of small cannabis brands to help get their names out and in the public. The most recent collaboration has been with Delta 8 THC vendor Area52, which specializes in Delta 8 THC cartridges, gummies, and tinctures.
The Apothecarry Case
“Time to ditch the shoebox,” says Apothecarry, the makers of a sleek high-end case designed to store your stash for optimum freshness thanks to low wood odor of the box, airtight gaskets on the food-grade strain jars and silicone coated non-stick dab jars. They call it the world’s most complete humidor, and it’s lockable and discreet, too. Pre-sales have officially started on this brand new product, which has a price tag of $159 (a lot more than a shoe box.)
The Aura is a ‘classy’ water pipe that looks good sitting on the coffee table of a million-dollar mansion in Los Angeles outfitted with extremely expensive furniture. Or, you know, on your nightstand next to a bag of Cheetos. Proudly made with weed-smoking design nerds in mind, it upgrades a few aspects of a standard bong, making it easier to load, control and clean.
Monk Cannabinoid Health Drinks
For the Goop reader who’s too refined to ever smoke the marijuanas but wants to get a little edgy, Monk Drinking Botanicals offer luxuriously branded elixirs pairing cannabis terpenes with ginger, turmeric, rosemary, cayenne and other organic, fresh-pressed ingredients. Okay, so there are plenty of reasons people would want to access the benefits of these compounds without smoking, and the drinks – in flavors like ‘ginger maple shrub’ – sound pretty tasty. They’re not too outrageously priced, either, with a set of five 4-ounce bottles costing $30. You need proof of a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana in order to purchase.
‘Leafs by Snoop’ Products Designed by Pentagram
Graphic design firm Pentagram teamed up with Snoop Dogg to brand his collection of marijuana-related products, including chocolate bars, drops, chews and dummies, giving them a sleek and sophisticated look you might not expect from this hip hip legend.
