America’s use of marijuana has risen – at least publicly – over the course of the last decade, as marijuana becomes legalized state by state. As the popularity of the plant has soared, so too has the market for marijuana accessories, which today expands far beyond the glass pipes and decaled lighters of yore.
Today, an Amazon search for marijuana accessories will include t-shirts and jewelry, handbags and scarves, socks and women’s underwear. Elegant marijuana-inspired jewelry can be custom ordered through Etsy. Yet classic marijuana accessories are also readily available online, from cases and “stash boxes” of all materials and sizes, to bongs, vaporizers, rolling papers, and grinders. Vapor devices, from plug-in vaporizers to stealthy portable ‘pens,’ allow the user to inhale steam instead of smoke.
Representing the latest in vapor technology, “Vape” retailers seem to have settled in nearly every American town. Manufacturers claim that their products – pipes that ‘vaporize’ the oils of flavored tobaccos and marijuana – reduce some of the risks of smoking the substances. Today, you’ll find ‘vape’ marijuana accessories in all shapes and sizes, from engraved works of art to plastic desktop varieties available in a rainbow of colors and materials. Other recent developments in the realm of marijuana accessories include lighter “multi-tools” and self- cleaning ashtrays.
There’s no doubt that marijuana accessories comprise a booming global industry that exists largely online. So next time you’re shopping for gifts, consider marijuana accessories. In today’s digitized world, you can peruse vapor bubblers, marijuana-related “drinking” games, and even rolling papers made of gold, from Shine Papers – all without ever leaving the comfort of your home. There are marijuana accessories tailored to every marijuana user, and marijuana accessories are constantly being updated to accommodate evolving tastes and emerging styles.
Whether the user’s intent is recreational or medicinal, marijuana accessories are sure to enable a fuller use of – and appreciation for – marijuana itself.
