Top 6 Cannabis Subscription Boxes to Try

It’s hard to watch TV or scroll through Instagram these days without an ad for a new subscription box, with categories ranging from beauty products to live plants. The boxes are packed with surprise goodies and delivered straight to your door for a monthly fee. While many people are still currently staying home due to COVID-19, it’s no wonder that these subscription services have gained massive popularity for their convenience and practicality. In fact, the subscription box market grew 890% from April 2014 to 2018 and is continuing to expand.

What’s better than receiving a box filled to the brim with surprise goodies every month? You guessed it -getting a weed subscription box. You may be wondering, can you mail weed? Unfortunately, marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, which means that actual cannabis flower and products with any THC can’t be shipped across state lines. Instead of letting this deter them from joining in on the monthly delivery mania, marijuana businesses sought out other ways to elevate a weed connoisseur’s smoking experience while simultaneously abiding by the law. A typical 420 box may contain blazing accessories like lighters, grinders, rolling papers, and even glass pieces. Some even include CBD products that don’t include THC. With so many different cannabis subscription boxes on the market to pick from, it might be somewhat overwhelming trying to choose. Have no fear, we’re here to help you decide on the best stoner subscription box for you.

5 Weed Boxes (and 1 CBD Box) Worth Subscribing to in 2020

For your monthly supply of rolling papers, and then some.

Marijuana dispensaries aren’t what they used to be. Most buildings that are new and legal—in those U.S. states that permit them—are gleaming, white, and brightly lit. You hear terms like “the Apple store of weed” thrown around as the industry adopts a shiny, law-abiding aura, and perhaps that’s intimidating. Head shops haven’t really gone through the same spiff-up, and maybe the grunge isn’t your vibe, either. Plus, both are still physical locations, and you might be trying to avoid stepping foot in “places” at the moment. What everyone can get behind is a subscription box. You don’t have to go anywhere that isn’t your home. A pro makes the hard choices. And the monthly surprise is kinda nice. Here are a few in the weed realm to test out. Yeah, they all come stocked with rolling papers, but it’s the products beyond the papers that are worth clocking—artsy bongs, CBD snacks, tinctures and merch, the works.

Right out of the gate, Hemper’s strength is covering just about every base. It starts with a Core box for ten bucks a month, which lets you pick six basic items and have them shipped every month, and accelerates up to a monthly Hemper box, which is full of items loosely revolving a theme. June’s theme is “beach,” and previous themes ran the gamut from “space car bong box” to a spookier “Jack the Ripper box.”

Yeah, four dollars a month—just enough to save you the inconvenience of popping by the corner store to pick up the essentials: matches, rolling paper, and tips, all from Raw. That’s the ultra-basic Economist pack. A slightly pricier Mediator box will diversify the brands and supplies sent your way, but not overwhelm you with too much crap. Bump all the way up to the Premium Club, and you’ll get at least 10 items a month, all curated and all a mystery to you, including a piece of glasswork.

This is the good shit—the kind of luxe weed products in new-age trappings that feel supremely, aesthetically modern. Nugg Club says every box it sends is worth at least $225, which you pay less than half of, and once you’re signed up, the Club also has a digital storefront to browse items on discount. And it’ll ship you products with THC. The catch is, only if you live in L.A. or Orange County.

SensiBox is tailored towards the smoker with quite the collection of glassware, or the smoker who’d like to cultivate one. Every Essential box comes with an original art smoking piece—an elephant pipe, a triple honeycomb bong, and an alpaca bowl are three examples—along with the standard weed-ingesting merch that you’d get in the other boxes. Bongs as high art is a concept we fully endorse.

For the most eclectic collection of weed-related stuff, sign up for CanniBless. A box might include snacks, soda, a lighter, flavored cigars, and rolling paper, all of it cool enough to make stepping outside the realm of the known worthwhile. And, the brand says its boxes help support non-profits and artists working within the cannabis community. Can’t beat that.

Should CBD be your (sorta) drug of choice, then this box’ll set you up with curated oils, tinctures, edibles, concentrates, vapes, and whatever other CBD products have been invented by the end of this sentence. Lucky Box does a CBD and THC subscription box for California residents that’s worth checking out, too.

Here are a few subscription boxes in the weed realm to test out with products beyond rolling papers that are worth clocking—artsy bongs, CBD snacks, tinctures and merch, the works.
