Something For Everyone: A Glimpse Into The Future Of Cannabis

The Tech Blazer

A new generation of refined consumers has pushed businesses to break the aesthetical taboos of cannabis and provide quality gadgets that add high-design accents to living rooms across the world.

Today’s creatives walk with slick vapes next to the latest smartphones, checking their microdosing schedule on apps suited for the modern psychonaut. 

Between sessions, they nibble on cannabis-butter-infused pastries or grind fresh herb with the help of Danish design.

As the trip starts to kick in, their VR headsets become tools for mindful exploration and spiritual inspiration—lessons that are jotted down on their journals before winding down with a percussion massager (to loosen any remaining tightness in their body and call it a day).

A Wholesome Approach To Cannabis: Body Relief & Mental Clarity

Before cannabis was divided into medicinal and recreational (for legal purposes), the plant had been considered a natural healing tool used for thousands of years.

Some of the earliest mentions of marihuana in pharmacopeias worldwide date back 2000 years B.C. when the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung compiled one of the earliest Materia Medicas known to man.

Although cannabis has historically been present in medicine, it took decades for governments to rethink the way we looked at it.

Tarnished by an oppressive War on Drugs, it was only until doctors stepped up and studied the plant—some under the authorities’ radar—to prove what we know today: cannabinoids and terpenes found in marijuana have anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving properties and may be beneficial in treating depression and regulate seizures.

These are just some of the reasons why cannabis has made a breakthrough into modern medicine, with doctors around the world recommending its use as a replacement for opiates or pharmaceuticals.

Medical reports aside, all of us who consume it know: it makes us feel good.

Here are some of our favorite brands working towards a more wholesome community.

Staying In Is The New Luxury: Introverts From The World; This One's For You

If we learned anything from these past few years of lockdown, it’s that our homes are an extension of our bodies—and they deserve the same amount of love and care.

Here are some products that will add flair to your residential space.

The Herby Homebody

Back in the day, not a lot of people dared to have a bong in the middle of their living room for fear of being judged.

Fast forward to today: smoking accessories have become an indispensable part of our home’s decor.

It’s all due to the elevated design and quality pieces that have been coming out of creatives who used to lurk in the shadows, prevented from expressing themselves due to social taboos and legal restrictions.

Turn your home into a fancy boutique with ceramic canisters made in California, bongs that operate with infrared lasers, organic candles that add soothing scents to your abode, the best headphones for listening to music and online gaming, as well as a few other must-haves that will help you feel good about staying at home.

Lighting Joints Sparks Ideas

The myth that stoners are intellectually challenged is nothing more than a propaganda legend created by politicians to keep us away from a plant that can be a wonderful tool for creativity and self-expression.

The Elevated Smoker

Forget the image of the couch-locked pothead; the modern-day stoner is active and highly creative, always on the move, and ready to learn.

Walk into any sesh and you’ll find yourself talking with fellows who are acquainted with everything from prohibition history and social justice, the cultural and spiritual traditions around marijuana, quantum physics, art criticism, and current trends. 

Cannabis is no longer just a tool to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the world, but also one that helps us connect bridges with a new breed of brainiacs who love to vibe and thrive, expanding their minds into deeper conversations.

Here’s a selection of products for a highbrow toolkit that will help you keep the brain active—in style.
