It’s the Art Issue, and as such, we wanted to showcase a few cannabis accessories that are either a bit quirky, handmade or have a unique history. We hand-selected a small assortment of cannabis accessories from Mendocino County to Berlin, Germany. Treat yourself this fall and support the arts in one swoop!
Proto Pipe Classic
Handcrafted in Mendocino County by Phil and Richard Jergenson alongside an intimate team, the Proto Pipe Deluxe is celebrating over 50 years in existence. In 1968 Phil Jergenson had the vision to create a gadget for the ages – a cleanable, multi-functioning pipe to achieve that ideal “puff of magic medicine.” After placing an ad in Rolling Stone Magazine in 1972, Jergenson’s pipe dreams were off to the races, and he hasn’t looked back since. The company has had its hiccups with shady investors and trouble stemming from Regan’s War on Drugs, but nevertheless, the Proto Pipe lives on. Be sure to check out the company’s other pipes and read the About Us section of the website for the full download.

Designed in Bavaria, Stona grinders come in an assortment of colors including warm gold, pearl gray, deep gray and new silver and are a multi-use mortar, grinder and grater in one. Not only can you grind your favorite flower in it, the Stona is ideal as a kitchen accessory for slicing dried flowers and herbs. It comes with two microblades (fine and medium), cleans easily after use and has an air-sealed storage chamber. At just nearly four inches tall and a tad over three inches wide, the Stona takes up little counter space and is built from stainless steel, space-grade anodized aluminum and locally sourced wood from Bavaria. On top of all of that, taking care of your Stona is a cinch – a little bit of linseed oil toweled onto the wood is all you need to keep your mechanism running smoothly for years to come.
