Although it’s been ten years since Colorado and Washington led the country in legalizing weed, it’s unfortunately still important to be careful and mind local legislation when enjoying your cannabis in less friendly states. Thankfully, as cannabis inches closer to legalization across the United States, it’s never been easier to find innovative and even high-tech cannabis (and cannabis-adjacent) products so you can light up discreetly.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or others, think outside the bong: smell-proof carrying cases, electronic vape batteries, and even a little one-hitter are great for packing (but remember, no lithium batteries in your check-in). From edibles to a one-hitter, here are our best travel-friendly gifts for cannabis lovers. (Of course, anything that contains actual THC is only available in California).
