Seven Ways to Store Your Travel Stash

Whether you’re headed across town or across the country, you’ve probably encountered the problem of how to carry your smoking supplies after you take them out of the marijuana packaging. Ultimately, the answer to this question will depend on the contents of your stash and where you’re going. Like many cannabis consumers, we would venture to guess that your stash is constantly changing. That said, the most versatile options are usually the most helpful.

Forget Doob Tubes & Altoid Tins

Cannabis users around the globe have been re-purposing classic items like tin Altoid mint containers and sunglasses cases for years. While these containers are capable of stashing a combination of cannabis and smoking devices, they are typically flimsy and lack smell-proof construction. Unfortunately, you also run the risk of losing your stash to an accidental lid opening, which seems to happen quite frequently with daily use. Another common choice is a doob tube: an obnoxiously bright plastic tube designed to carry joints. They are cheap airtight containers, but you’ll still need to remember your lighter. Be aware that depending on the size of the tube, you may not be able carry blunts or king size papers.

Airtight Containers are Bulky

Airtight canisters are very prevalent in the cannabis industry. They are typically designed as storage solutions for the cannabis products themselves – so you’ll need another dedicated space for your actual smoking accessories (i.e. pipe, bong, papers, etc.). Most commonly, they constructed from plastic or glass – a DIY solution is a pill container or mason jar. Airtight canisters are manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes, opacities, and materials; feel free to purchase different sizes for different amounts of cannabis.

Silicone containers have become synonymous with concentrate storage due to their non-stick properties, but they’re not just for concentrates. These smell proof containers are made in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

Silicone containers are especially helpful when dealing with concentrates with waxy, buttery, or oily consistenciesNote: the quality of silicone used is very important! To mitigate rick of contaminating your concentrate, utilize medical grade silicone as opposed to food grade.

Vaporizers Break Easily

Dispensaries sell a variety of vaporizers and dab pens that include pre-filled cannabis concentrate cartridges as well as the load-your-own dab style. The sealed, pre-filled cartridges eliminate the need to carry additional concentrates, but they can break easily in your pocket. Looking for the best vape pen? Check this one out.

Skip the DIY Stash Box: 5 Reasons to Invest in a Professional System

Investing in a stash box is, for some smokers, a luxury: it’s simply a means to effectively organize smoking essentials and accessories. For others, investing in a stash box is an absolute necessity, as keeping a low profile is non-negotiable. While we believe strongly that cannabis consumption should be decriminalized, legalized, and de-stigmatized, until that day, using a low-profile stash box is the best way to enhance discretion.

When we couldn’t find anything that met my requirements, we sat down and made a list of everything that a perfect stash box should be:

  1. Smell-proof

    What’s the point of a stash box if the smell leaks out into the world? There’s a time and a place for getting a whiff of your favorite flower—and at the office is not one of them. It should be made with premium materials and a outdoor-grade zipper to ensure a smell-proof seal.

  2. Discreet

    Rasta colors and marijuana leaf prints? No thanks. Advertising cannabis consumption may be cool for teenagers, but for those who wear button-ups instead of Bob Marley t-shirts to work, a low-profile smoking kit is absolutely essential. And this pretty much knocked DIY kits out of the running for me: Altoid tins, hemp sacks, dopp kits—it was all way too obvious.

  3. Protective

    Dropping your stash box is, as we all know, an occupational hazard. Just like we’d never use my iPhone without a rugged case, we am averse to relying on poorly-padded, subpar stash boxes that couldn’t protect my $250 vape pen or custom glass chillum from unexpected bumps in the road. We invest in the right phone case, and that iPhone makes it through the gauntlet of life without a cracked screen. Same goes for my prized smoking essentials. It always baffles us when people are willing to spend a ton of money on an expensive piece of glass, and then treat it as they would a metal one-hitter.

  4. High-quality

    While there were a few stash boxes on the market, there was one glaring aspect that all of them were missing: quality. Maybe the lower-quality cases didn’t matter to the folks interested in buying the Bob Marley, weed-leaf print stash boxes—but to us, functionality came first. After all, we’re avid outdoor enthusiasts and my Colorado lifestyle has proved time and time again the importance of functionality over aesthetics – just because a jacket looks good doesn’t mean it will perform well in a whiteout blizzard.

  5. Convenient

    Some days We roll joints, some days we smoke blunts, some days we hit the chillum, some days we vape. As a cannabis connoisseur, we have different preferences based on what the day holds. As such, we want a stash box that is compatible with all sorts of smoking accessories. Each accessory should be designed to fit in a specific compartment or pocket, while still leaving room for my blunts, joints, pipe, or vape pen.
