The organic soy and nag champa oil candle is hand-poured locally by Ty Bramwell of Ebb & Flow. Head Shop retails for $18, with a burn time of 48–50 hours, so that means plenty of chill for your buck.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” el_id=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Our friends at White Rabbit have their sale shelves packed with plenty of hemp-themed nuggets. The Dope on a Rope hemp oil soap, is a favorite.

Raw Natural Unrefined Hemp Rolling Papers

Find ’em: at The Konnexion
Buy ’em: $2.25-$5

Nearly all combustible material will release carcinogenic compounds once burned, but if you’re interested in an organic or ethical way of inhaling said compounds, then perhaps Raw’s organic hemp rolling papers are for you. Each paper is made of raw, organic, unbleached hemp. Smoke may be dirty but at least your conscious will be clean.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” el_id=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Pot Leaf Hat

Find it: at White Rabbit
Buy it: $20 $10

Some people wear hats to let you know that they’re Cubs fans, others wear hats to let you know that they want to “Make America Great Again” (are they inferring that America isn’t great right now? How unpatriotic). Well why not wear this heady marijuana leaf-print hat available from White Rabbit, declaring your allegiance as fan of the Green Team.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” el_id=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
