What Smokers Want

As many states go legal with recreational and medical cannabis, you may wonder what will sell in stores and what do smokers really want in their hands?  After much experimentation and experience, we think we’ve got a pretty good idea about which items sell best and are used most.  Here is a quick list.

Something to “put your weed in”

Most states have strict regulations about how the product needs to leave the store and how cannabis should be stored. Since the majority of states require child-resistant bags anyway, try printing your logo and other information on them to create brand awareness. Many sizes and several style options are available

Storage Jars come in multiple sizes

Smell proof Velcro bags are an awesome, everyday use type item anyone can use to store their pipes, lighters, and rolling supplies

Doob tubes are a great way to offer pre-rolls (the fancy glass or stainless styles will add a touch of class)

Rolling Papers get shared, seen a bunch, and offer the ability for full color all over customization. We have all kinds of sizes, shapes and even different kinds of paper like organic hemp, unbleached rice (like RAW brand) and even the old standard wood pulp. There are a ton of options so please make sure to inquire for more specific info and pricing on fully customized styles.

Since many of us these days aren’t sure how to work a rolling paper, try one of our personal favorite rolling machines on for size. This style works extra well because the rollers have a bit of texture to them which grips the paper nicely.

Here's how to roll one up!

Go king-sized for an extra-long burn


Finally, how about something to light that freshly rolled doobie? Lighters are great; from the internationally popular Clipper to the classic Bics or nice metal and jet styles.

Years of experience allow us to make suggestions about the styles and looks that will work just right for you! Or maybe you’re looking for other wearable items like sunglass styles or highly customizable lapel pins.  There’s even a wide variety of display units, banners, tents, and signage for in-store and out-of-store experiential events.  Adding hot selling retail items to your dispensary acts as a regular profit center.
