Subscriptions aren’t just for magazines anymore. In a time when you can have just about anything delivered to your door, subscription boxes are becoming increasingly popular. This trend cuts across industries and products with monthly subscriptions available for almost everything, including favourites like wine, food, fashion, pet supplies and a wide array of hobbies. And now you can even find boxes geared towards cannabis consumers.
These marijuana subscription boxes can be a lot of fun, and there are many out there to choose from. Some cannabis subscription boxes focus more on marijuana accessories and lifestyle. These boxes don’t come with any cannabis. But instead, they offer cannabis essentials like papers, pipes, ashtrays and lighters. Often these boxes have a particular theme and may even include items that fit the theme, but don’t necessarily have to do with cannabis.
Other boxes feature marijuana and introduce members to new cannabis products each month. If you like to switch things up and try new marijuana products often, a subscription box can be a great way to do just that.
Whatever box intrigues you, subscribing to a monthly box can take the decision out of your hands, so that you don’t have to spend time figuring out what to try. Even better, the boxes tend to cost less than it would to buy all of the products individually, so they can save you money as well.
Curious to try one out? Here are our top picks for subscription boxes available in Canada.
Cannabox Sends Themed Marijuana Accessories
For a mix of cannabis accessories and lifestyle items, one good subscription to try out is Cannabox. Each Cannabox includes between six to nine items, focusing mostly on cannabis supplies. If you’re on a tight budget, this is a great choice as Cannaboxes are extremely well priced. At only $19.88 per month, or as low as $17.88 if you purchase six months at once, it’s the lowest-priced subscription box around.
The one I got had a “lethal kush” theme, and included:
- A glass bubbler and T-shirt featuring a cartoon Deadpool
- Fruit punch-flavoured blunt papers
- Samurai-themed rolling papers and crutches
- A large joint roller
- A grinder with an image of a woman holding a samurai sword
- Two fortune cookies featuring Deadpool quotes
This box had a good value for what was included and had a lot of useful cannabis supplies. While the theme didn’t resonate with my style, it felt like it would be a great fit for many cannabis consumers out there; the subscription box seems to be geared towards younger male cannabis consumers.
Sensibox Offers His & Hers Cannabis Accessories
Another fun cannabis lifestyle box to try out is Sensibox. Unlike most subscription boxes, this one has his or hers versions. I tried out both boxes: Each had a playful theme and a variety of fun items (some related to cannabis and others not).
The hers box had an elephant theme with cannabis accessories like:
- A silicone elephant pipe
- A grinder
- A lighter
- A blunt tube
All of the items featured some kind of elephant in the design. The box also included a scarf, a wallet and a pack of gum, also all with elephant designs.
The his box had a barbecue theme and came with:
- Lettuce pre-rolls
- A lighter shaped like a Coke
- Lemon bong essence
- Pork jerky
- Barbecue seasoning
- A burger pin
- Pickle-flavoured chapstick
Priced at $35 (or $20 for the lite version), these boxes always have a cute theme, and you never know what you’ll get since the items go beyond standard cannabis accessories. They make sweet gifts for the male or female cannabis lovers in your life.
Get High-Quality Marijuana Accessories With a Hemper Box
For a subscription box that’s all about cannabis supplies, Hemper is definitely worth checking out. Its boxes cost $29.99, but advertise a $100 value inside. I could barely believe everything that was packed into the boxes I got. One had a Pineapple Express cannabis strain theme and included:
- A beautiful full-sized bong/dab rig with a pineapple at its center
- A pineapple-shaped carb cap that matched the dab rig
- Mango pineapple-flavoured hemp papers
- Plain rolling papers
- Pipe cleaners
- A lighter
- A cigar cutter
- An ashtray that said, “it’s lit”
The second box didn’t have a discernable theme, but contained:
- A gorgeous glass bong/dab rig
- A refillable lighter and lighter case
- A hemp wick
- Pre-rolled cones
- A glass one-hitter
- Hemp papers
- Filter tips
- A candle scented with terpenes to make it smell like lavender cannabis
I have to say, I was really impressed with the quality of the Hemper boxes. The pineapple dab rig has instantly become my favourite glass piece and is getting a lot of use. On its own, the rig was worth well more than the cost of the box, and every item Hemper included was one that I could use. Plus, the aesthetic of these items felt like one that would appeal to both men and women. For a practical and versatile box that still has style, Hemper is my top pick.
Weedbox Will Send You a Curated Collection of Cannabis Flowers
If you’re interested in trying out a box that has more than just marijuana accessories, check out Weedbox. This monthly subscription box ships to customers in Canada. Each box contains a quarter ounce of cannabis flower in two strains and two pre-rolls. It also includes a free vape pen for first-time customers. Priced at $147, the box advertises that it contains over $200 in cannabis. Weedbox also allows you to customize your cannabis selection, whether you’re interested in receiving indica, sativa or hybrid strains, or if you’d like a combination.
Weedbox is a great way to get a discount on new marijuana flavours. If you like to try new strains anyway, skip the stress of shopping and let Weedbox pick for you. There’s nothing quite like opening a mysterious package and finding it full of top-shelf cannabis.
CBD Health Box Will Give You a Non-Psychoactive Cannabis Experience
For those who prefer options rich in cannabidiol (CBD), CBD Health Box may be the best way to go. This box provides high-CBD products exclusively and will send you a sampling of new CBD products each month. The box I received had:
- A lemon-flavoured CBD vape pen
- CBD banana bites
- CBD lemon drops
- A Bob Marley postcard
These boxes cost $84.99 each, if you purchase them one at a time, or can cost as little as $54.99 when you sign up for a year’s subscription.
