What Smokers Want
By Tom Gudekunst
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, try printing your logo and other information on them to create brand awareness. Many sizes and several style options are available.
Zip locking bags
Available in multiple sizes.
Smell Proof Velcro bags
Bags are an awesome, everyday use type item anyone can use to store their pipes, lighters, and rolling supplies.
A great way to offer pre-rolls (the fancy glass or stainless doob tube styles add a touch of class).
Grinders come in many forms and fashions, from inexpensive plastic styles to nicer engraved metal, and 4-chamber styles. We have a very wide assortment of grinders, so if you need something special, just ask!
Imprinted rolling trays
Trays keep your brand out in the open and top of mind. Available in easy-to-customize metal styles and can even be supplied with magnetic lids.
Rolling papers are easily shared, remain seen, and offer the ability for full color all over customization with rolling papers. We have all kinds of sizes, shapes, and even different kinds of paper like organic hemp, unbleached rice (like the RAW brand), and even the old standard wood pulp. Please make sure to inquire for more specific info and pricing on fully customized styles.
Since many of us 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.
Watch how to roll one up!
Finally, how about something to light that freshly rolled doobie? From the internationally popular Clipper to the classic Bic
s or nice metal and jet styles, lighters are great!

Other Branded Merchandise
Of course, this is just the start. Do you need apparel options like hats, tees, hoodies, or beanies? 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.
Whatever it is, Higher Promos can help you find the right product(s) to suit your audience and event, and we’ll even help with artwork and design too. Call or email your Higher Promos rep today for personalized service.
