Magnetic heat induction, Internet-of-Things (IOT), Lithium Ion battery technology – sounds like features you’d find in an electric car, but would you believe a cannabis pipe?! Where there’s a breakthrough in new technology today, it seems like there’s a start-up figuring out a way to integrate it into a pipe, whereby building a better mousetrap.

Before we peer into the future of cannabis consumption technologies, it’s worth flashing back to where it all started.  In fact, it was the Plains Indians who first carried peace pipes in a bag called a pipe bundle. They often decorated the pouches in ornate beads. The Native Americans considered cannabis to be a sacrament with magical properties.


From the early Native rituals to today’s Netflix & Chill, we’ve come a long way baby. Not so far that we’ve deterred at all from the core purpose of cannabis, the objective is still the same – a social ritual intended to bring a group of people closer to one another and more connected to the universe. And, with that, let’s all inhale and pass the dutchie clockwise please as we review…
