Pure Beauty
Pre-Rolls
$40

Made with super-thin paper, Pure Beauty's pre-rolls are very discrete—appearing like a regular cigarette, save for the cheeky side-eye motif. Available in each of the brand's signature strains, developed in California, each pack holds five .70g premium cannabis flower pre-rolls.

Jacquie Aiche
Sweetleaf Crewneck
$175

Continuing her Sweetleaf range, jewelry and apparel designer Jacquie Aiche has a line of sweatshirts and hoodies that highlight one's affection for the greenery. Our pick is the charcoal crewneck, with a black leaf on the chest and metallic blue flowering eye on the sleeve. Available from XS to XL, they're made in California for all genders.

Krewe
STL II Nylon Sunglasses
$375

A new take on their now-classic St Louis style, Krewe's new oversized STL II Nylon sunglasses feature super-flat nylon lenses that overlay the round shape. With frames hand-carved from plant-based acetate, 24-karat gold-plated hardware and 100% UVA and UVB protection, these shades are well-made and durable. Not only that, they have a lifetime warranty if damaged.

Kiva Confections
Cannabis-Infused Petra Mints
$15

Kiva Confections' sugar-free Moroccan mints blend peppermint and a tad of Tahitian vanilla with California-grown cannabis. The precise 2.5mg micro-dosage per mint allows users substantial control over their experience. And, with the addition of green tea matcha, these refresh the spirit as much as the breath. Right now, this product is only available in California.

Palm Angels
"Legalize It" T-Shirt
$240

It's hard to believe that Peter Tosh's seminal song "Legalize It" was released back in 1976, and marijuana is still a criminal offense in so many US states (not to mention all over the world). Palm Angels are echoing Tosh, and so many others, with their very simple T-shirts (available in black or yellow) that simply state "Legalize It."

P.A.R.O.S.H.
Marne Necklace
$220

Creators of high-end apparel, P.A.R.O.S.H. also has a strong passion for reimagining vintage clothing and accessories. The Marne necklace—made in Italy from acetate and metal—is a playful take on love beads, with a little rosary influence. The colorful, mismatched beads enhance almost any outfit, and the leaf is available in green, red or (our pick) a very bright blue.

MALIN+GOETZ + La Ligne
"High Notes" T-Shirt and Candle
$190

Just in time for 4/20, MALIN+GOETZ and NYC's La Ligne have teamed up for a cannabis-themed candle and T-shirt set that's for the sophisticated but playful toker. The candle's herbaceous fragrance blends with oakmoss, pepper, sandalwood, patchouli and more for a scent that's spicy without being over the top. As the for the T-shirt, it's La Ligne's classic ringer tee with deep green collar and cuffs and the words "sticky icky" embroidered in the corner. A little impish and a little elegant, the set is made with all genders in mind.

The Alchemist's Kitchen
Jetlag First Aid
$18

From staying up late, drinking heavily, popping melatonin, sipping chamomile tea and more—there are countless theories on how to avoid jet lag. But this Jetlag First Aid (made from avenia sativa, ginko bilboa, skullcap and more) is a plant-based formulation made to reset and refresh circadian balance. It also relaxes the body, so even if you can't sleep, you'll feel rested.

Designed in the USSR: 1950-1989
$40

With some 350 images of as many products, this new hardcover explores design in the USSR from 1950 to 1989 in an interesting peek behind the Iron Curtain. From kids' toys to posters and electronics, these everyday items each have a tinge of kitsch while often being avant-garde at the same time. It's a remarkable look into not only everyday life in the USSR at the time, but also the Moscow Design Museum's collection.

Tetra
Silver Rolled Smoke Keychain
$20

Made for keeping your pre-rolled joints fresh and tidy (as well as discreet) this unassuming silver keychain is essentially a lidded, hollow tube. With a gold tip, and measuring just over three inches long, it's a sophisticated accessory for on-the-move tokers and subtle enough to keep prying eyes to a minimum.

Apothecanna
Circulating Leg + Foot Creme
$60

With capsaicin, ginger and grapefruit botanical extracts paired with a substantial cannabis infusion, Apothecanna's circulation cream warms muscles and relieves inflammation. This anti-inflammatory potion reinvigorates limbs by stimulating blood flow. With a citrus and spiced scent, it also stimulates the nose. A great product from one of our favorite brands in the sector.

"In Two Minds" Facial Cleanser
$33

Their very cute, very kitsch personalized socks have an added feel-good factor too—with every pair purchased, a set is given to those in need.

Acqua di Parma
Colonia Pura Deodorant Stick
$33

Intended for men, but certainly wearable by all genders, Acqua di Parma's "Colonia Pura" deodorant stick is subtle but offers notes of patchouli, white musk, jasmine and orange—uniting for an ultimately fresh scent.
