If there’s an industry that keeps surprising us with fresh developments year after year, that’s cannabis. From new strains to innovative smoking accessories, every new year is full of exciting products. And this 2021, following one of the weirdest years in history, came with fantastic brand-new weed goodies that you’ll find in dispensaries and smoke shops all around the world.
So if you’re looking for an update on your smoking gear or on the lookout for a new strain to incorporate into your stash, you’ve come to the right place. After scouring the market, discovering, and trying the new stuff out there, we chose these four products that really stood out from the pack. These are Herb’s Hottest Brands of 2021.
Ever wanted to smoke your concentrates on the go? Well, thanks to CLSICS and their rosin-infused pre rolls, it’s now possible. Founded in San Diego, CLSICS was created with one mission: to create solventless rosin products that could be enjoyed socially.
CLSICS approach to rosin is truly an art form. They make it easy to integrate rosin into an active lifestyle through delicately packaged full-spectrum rosin-infused prerolls. No more rigs or torches needed to enjoy a good dab, just a pack of CLSICS pre rolls will do the trick.
Their rosin is extracted from strain-specific cannabis plants, which are flash-frozen after harvest before being washed in an ice bath. This way, CLSICS preserves the strain’s full terpene profile and separates the trichomes from the plant material. Then, using parchment paper and heat, they transform it into their famous rosin. No chemicals, no solvents, only true full-spectrum cannabis concentrate.
Find CLSICS rosin infused pre rolls in their three presentations: singles (1.3 grams/pre roll); mini singles (0.7 grams/pre roll); and their 4-pack of mini singles. A true novelty that had to be THE hottest cannabis product of 2021.
Meet the latest portable dab rig to hit the market, designed for you to get the best wax consumption experience possible. Waxmaid’s innovative electronic rig brings together the best materials and the latest heating technology into an affordable, easy-to-use, pocketable device perfect for on-the-go dabbing.
Using an ultra-thin temperature-conducting quartz chip, the Waxmaid Ares heats instantly. No more waiting for your device to heat up to dab; with the Ares, it’s a matter of turning it on and enjoying. Besides, thanks to its directly-heated technology, the Ares’ battery life is maximized. With one full charge, you’ll enjoy up to 60 sessions.
This device is made of Zinc Alloy metal, the same material used in aircraft manufacturing, to guarantee stronger corrosion resistance. It also features an easily refillable quartz chamber and a detachable silicone mouthpiece that adds color to your experience.
Every Ares comes with a compact, smell-proof carrying case so you can take your device everywhere. The case features a stash compartment and storage units for all the Ares’ pieces and add-ons. Whether you’re a new or experienced dabber, this device is definitely worth getting.
Any list of this year’s hottest cannabis-derived products obviously needs to include a CBD-infused drink. We didn’t want to go with just your traditional infused drinks, but something a bit more ‘out of the box’ and innovative.
