Here’s How to Pack the Perfect Stash Box

Published on December 15, 2017 · Last updated November 30, 2022

With an ever growing list of cannabis products on the market (and just as many ways to consume them), keeping all of your cannabis essentials in one secure spot can get a little tricky. We get it, so we put together the ultimate stash box checklist, featuring everything you need to complete your stash.

While big-ticket items like bongs, dab rigs, pipes, and tabletop vapes will likely be set out for all to see and use, miscellaneous accessories (and consumables, if you have underage kids or visitors) need a designated place to live—hence the art of building the perfect stash box. From the necessary lighter to a handy bit of black pepper, fill a quality stash bag or box with these stash basics and never find yourself empty-handed again.
