Maïtrimeans benevolence,loving kindness and friendliness in the Buddhist faith, as well as in Hinduism and Jainism. Phil Dépault, co-founder of Maitrileaf, dedicates much of his time to yoga; it wasn’t until his physical condition plummeted, however, that he discovered the connection between cannabis and maïtri. As he revealed to the Direct Cannabis Network, Dépault suffers from “fibromyalgia, chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome [and a] sleep disorder.” After being prescribed cannabis to treat his symptoms, Dépault’s life trajectory dramatically changed. He set out to create a line of cannabis accessories “designed to be sober, simple, with noble materials and handmade in Canada.”
Maïtri products are sleek, functional and showcase excellent craftsmanship. Ceramists mold each pipe, and cabinet makers engineer and finish each piece by hand for a refined, polished look. I personally love the Karuna Stash Jars, which you can write on with chalk to keep your strains straight. If you have the capital to invest in these impressive accessories, the Maïtri collection is the perfect addition to a chic coffee table display, complete with a card game perfect for an evening smoke sesh.
