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 I 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 I couldn’t find anything that met my requirements, I sat down and made a list of everything that a perfect stash box should be:
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.
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.
Dropping your stash box is, as we all know, an occupational hazard. Just like I’d never use my iPhone without a rugged case, I 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. I 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 me 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.
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 me, functionality came first. After all, I'm am 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.
Some days I roll joints, some days I smoke blunts, some days I hit the chillum, some days I vape. As a cannabis connoisseur, I have different preferences based on what the day holds. As such, I 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.
