Weedmaps Buyers’ Guide: Stash Boxes and Smell-Proof Bags
Between growing cultural acceptance and the political shifts that followed, lax laws and legal weed have transformed what it means to be a cannabis user.
And there’s never been a better time to be a stoner than now. Suddenly, weed is wellness, a viable alternative to alcohol, prescription pills and a slew of other coping mechanisms that are objectively terrible for us.
While cannabis is more acceptable than ever, discretion remains a key concern for most users. From the soccer mom hiding tinctures in her makeup bag to an otherwise unapologetic stoner who doesn’t want to smell like weed at the family function, the necessity for discretion exists on different levels. Regardless of where you fall on the sliding scale of a secret stoner to unabashed “weed kween,” discreet products are great tools when you want to keep it on the low.
Here is our guide to stash boxes and smell-proof bags, with a couple of ingenious products blurring the line between the two. Until cannabis becomes federally legal, it’s wise to err on the side of caution. Especially when the err, or in this case, air, doesn’t have to smell at all.
The Apothecarry Classic Stash Box
The Apothecarry Classic Stash Box exists at the apex of the high end. Four glass jars, four dab containers, humidity control, joint holders, a rolling tray… the list of super stoner accouterment goes on. If you’re a baller who takes their weed seriously enough to have a head stash worth preserving, this one-of-a-kind box is for you.
LiTT Stash Box
If you’re part of the 99% who can’t swing over $200 for a stash box, LiTT’s Stash Box is a great alternative. Simple, highly functional, and aesthetically cool, it has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Plus, the top of the box doubles as a rolling tray.
Diversion Hair Brush
With the Diversion Hair Brush, the name says it all. Though obviously not a box, it’s a great place to hide your stash when no one can know you have weed on you. If you live in a legal state, this doesn’t happen much. If you don’t, it happens all the time. Either way, we’ve all been there, and all would have been way less panicked if this brush had been there too.
The Gypsy by Erbanna
The Gypsy by Erbanna is one of those products that blur the line between stash box and smell-proof bag. A portable stash box, if you will. This quilted case is chic enough to conjure visions of Chanel bags, yet functional enough to come with two glass jars, plenty of room for whatever else, and a combination lock to boot. Just because it’s technically a stash box, doesn’t mean it has to stay in one place. The modern stoner is on the go. Now, so is their weed.
Another box/bag hybrid, Stashlogix’s Silverton is not for the casual stoner. With adjustable dividers, lockable zippered bags, rubber gaskets, and odor absorbent packs, it’s best suited for those who constantly deal in multiple strains at a time, most likely professionally.
Mini Quilted Smell Proof Pack by Cookies
The Mini Quilted Smell Proof Pack by Cookies is, in a word, perfect. It’s discreet, cute, and coming in at $29, it’s cheap enough for almost any budget. Whether you’re on a camping trip, out around the city or just in your car, people who don’t like weed will never know you have it — or suspect how stoned you are.
The Classic by Stashlogix
Equal parts eco-friendly and user-friendly, The Classic by Stashlogix is great for nomads. Aside from an integrated lock and adjustable dividers, it features Odorpax, replaceable odor absorption packets made with activated bamboo charcoal in a hemp/nylon pouch. Each pack lasts up to three years, so you’re good to go for the foreseeable future. And, to top it all off, it charges your phone.
Level1620’s Northern Lights Clutch
Part of Level 1620’s collaboration with Polish artist Anna Grochowska, the Northern Lights Clutch brings a touch of boho sophistication to the smell-proof bag. “The Northern Lights take us to nature,” she said of the design. “We sit out there at night and look up at the natural colored tie-dye lights in the sky. It’s a sacred moment of connection with the universe.” Sacred moments, tie-dye lights, and connecting to the universe? This bag is a physical manifestation of what getting high is all about.
Escape Luggage by Skunk
Escape Luggage by Skunk takes the smell-proof bag to a whole new level with their rollable smell-proof luggage. With carbon lining, a TSA zipper lock, telescope handle, and a slew of other travel-friendly approaches to discretion, this bag changes the game when it comes to traveling with THC.
Cloudten Glass Case
A smell-proof home for your bong or pipe can be just as important as the one for your stash. The Cloudten Glass Case is great for traveling, with an order resistant design and a solid rubber seal liner. Foam interior will form to whatever you have to throw in there, and the padlock ensures safekeeping. No matter where you go — or what you do — bring your bong in a smell-proof gun case.
Here is our guide to stash boxes and smell-proof bags, with a couple of ingenious products blurring the line between the two.
