THE PERSONAL STASH
Now I lay me down to sleepâ€¦on my bad ass â€œMr. Nice Kushâ€ pillowcase! A beautiful NUG that I donâ€™t feel bad about drooling on! The Personal Stash is a large collective of artists, musicians and pioneers of the 420 culture created in New York City by artists Are and Dia. They sent us a pretty dope little package with some of their â€œI BUD YOUâ€ stickers, my new pillowcase and some cannabis shoelaces. Their products are popping up everywhere, spreading the love of bud through high quality merchandise. The â€œI BUD YOUâ€ logo has found itself on the pages of High Times, as art on the walls of Amsterdam, and all over the U.S. They, like us, strive to spread love and knowledge of a plant that has been forbidden by our society for unjust reasons. Portions of their proceeds go to NORML and MPP to support the reform of marijuana laws, and all products are produced in the U.S. Make sure to check them out at:
ED’S TOTE’N TOKES
Ed from Edâ€™s Toteâ€™n Tokes sent over some amazing pieces to review! He makes all of his products here in the U.S. himself. He takes an incredible amount of pride in the pieces he creates and each one is one of a kind, using rare and exotic woods and pure love to create them. We received an â€œAsian Curly Crape Myrtleâ€ dugout, an â€œAsian Big Eye Afzelia Burlâ€ dugout w/turquoise inlay, and a super sweet, two-tone â€œAsian Amboyna Burlâ€ pipe. Amboyna Burl is said to be the most expensive and rarest wood on this earth, its highly figured and super sweet! He also makes his own wood oil, a 100% organic Hawaiian beeâ€™s wax with natural mineral oil and pure essence oil for fragrance. It adds the luster back into a worn piece, just wipe it on and wipe it off to leave a beautiful shine. I love the craftsmanship and quality of them! Very cool work! It is amazing how the smell of the wood actually brings me back to the old days when I would enter a smoke shop. I have been using glass now for so many years that a solid wooden pipe like these brings back memories. Also, when used, the aromas that fill the room are different, heavier and mixed with the smell of the wood. I think that the pieces will be a new favorite of mine for sure. I really love the fact that they are made from natural materials. I think they bring a depth to the smoking experience that is lost with other mediums. I have to be honest and tell you that when we first talked about it, I was thinking that I would not enjoy them as much as my beloved glass pieces that I have been accustomed to over the last 10 years, but I was wrong! So put that in your pipe and smoke it, ha-ha! Get you some at:
