This new SE special section represents the convergence of smoke products and adult retail. If your store is looking to supplement its current inventory with smoke products, then please review our list of preferred smoke vendors in several different product categories. As the worlds of “adult” and “smoke” share a symbiotic relationship, we at SE would like to be your trusted source for information on the smoke products that may work best for your store, while also featuring the companies that are looking to make the adult retail industry a priority.

(Note: This story appears in the April 2024 issue of SE Magazine

“Adult stores are definitely expanding their smoke footprint. IN fact, approximately 50% of our adult store clients are currently selling smoke products in their stores. It’s a natural fit for the existing customer base and a great incremental sale.”


– Paul Reutershan, Sales Ambassador for Williams Trading Company, one of the largest distributors of adult products in the US

“Video used to run the adult space, and right now, its dwindling on the shelves. This is why we’re encouraging adult boutiques to open up a smoke section to fill that space. Start with some cash register items, such as rolling paper and detoxes, continuing on into the slightly larger devices that are packaged like adult novelty. There’s no reason we can’t all be family. We want small businesses to thrive, and we do everything we can to cater to that mindset.”


– Cam Jennings, Adult Section Director & Department Manager of CHAMPS


The addition of a smoke product section calls for a few smoker accessories if your store plans on truly being a ‘one-stop shop’ for counterculture products. Smoking papers and torches/lighters encourage smoke product usage and are a great add-on to have at the register. The price of convenience here cannot be ignored. Containers and scales are useful for consumers who are interested in acquiring large amounts of your product, and cleaning supplies are necessary for the long-term use of any glassware you may sell in your smoke section.

To help market all of the enjoyable effects of alternative consumption, “swag” such as greeting cards and apparel is a great way to get the word out about your company’s recent product category addition. Long-term customers will enjoy the opportunity to rep your store!

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in all cannabis plants, which means it can be derived from either hemp or marijuana. However, CBD products are only federally legal nation-wide if they’re derived from hemp, meaning that the plant contains less than 0.3 percent THC. Since hemp was federally legalized, CBD and its derivative products have become increasingly popular for their medicinal, recreational and therapeutic effects.

Many people use CBD products because of their reputed health benefits. CBD is a possible treatment for health issues such as anxiety, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia, as well as aiding people with chronic pain, appetite suppression and nausea. The FDA has even approved CBD as an anti-seizure drug for people with epilepsy. Yet, the majority of consumers don’t need a serious medical condition to enjoy the benefits of CBD.

Some of the benefits of recreational and therapeutic use of CBD include relaxation, stress relief and anti-inflammatory effects. The method of intake affects the experience. To enjoy an array of the benefits of CBD consumption, the cannabinoid can be infused to create a wide variety of products, such as CBD beverages, CBD edibles and CBD topicals.

CBD beverages

The health benefits offered by CBD beverages make them a fantastic addition to the beverages market. The uplifting effects can be compared to alcohol beverages, without the negative effects associated with alcohol consumption. Sipping on a CBD beverage never has to sacrifice the consumer’s well-being the way a night consuming alcoholic beverages may. For instance, some studies show that alcohol can cause sleep-related problems, which makes non-alcoholic drinks infused with CBD a great alternative to alcoholic beverages for people who struggle with insomnia. Consuming CBD-infused drinks before bedtime might actually help improve sleep quality.

CBD edibles

Another type of infusion, CBD edibles come in many varieties including baked goods, chocolates and gummies. All of these products are easier to control the dose of than via smoke inhalation, a distinct advantage to CBD edibles.

CBD edibles come in pre-dosed servings, enabling the user to calculate the amount needed to consume to achieve their desired results. While certain vapor pens do not contain harmful additives, CBD edibles are an excellent way to avoid inhaling potentially toxic compounds for consumers with sensitive lungs. With their long-lasting effects, CBD edibles can provide prolonged relief from pains and stresses. Edibles are also discreet, allowing consumers to up their doses as needed.

CBD lotions/lubes

According to the National Library of Medicine, there has been a growing interest in research on the topical usage of cannabis-based extract. The benefits of topical cannabis include anti-inflammatory, anti-itching, analgesics, wound healing and anti-proliferative effects on the skin, making CBD topicals a potential product of interest for any consumer. However, the additional calming and arousing effects of CBD offer especially intriguing benefits to the bedroom in the forms of CBD lotion and lube.

CBD is a vasodilator, which means that it can increase blood flow to the area it is applied to. Increased blood flow is an essential part of the arousal process. It also helps the muscles in and around the applied area relax. For people with certain pelvic floor dysfunctions marked by muscle tightness, the increased blood flow caused by using CBD lubricant can help the muscles relax enough to make penetration both possible and enjoyable. For the average user, CBD lubricant can also increase sensation and sensitivity.

It turns out that the world of weed is way more complicated than you might have believed, not just in what’s available, but in what manner and measure of legality. So, let’s break down just a few components of the Cannabis plant, their distinct differences in effects and properties, as well as their unique legal terms and distinguishers.

The word “cannabis” refers to all products derived from the plant Cannabis sativa. The word “marijuana” refers to those parts of or products from the plant Cannabis sativa that contain substantial amounts of (more than 0.3%) tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is a cannabinoid, or a naturally occurring compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant, a type of flowering plant in the Cannabaceae family. There are hundreds of different compounds present in the plant, only a portion of which are termed cannabinoids, because they have an affinity for and activity at cannabinoid receptors naturally found in the endocannabinoid systems of the human body (as well as in all other animals). Cannabinoids are differentiated into classes based on their degree of psychoactivity. THC is the cannabinoid primarily responsible for the effects of marijuana on a person’s mental state, and it’s the most controlled aspect of the plant, legally. 

It’s a common misconception that hemp and marijuana are two different species of plant. In fact, they’re not distinct species at all, they’re just two different names for cannabis. While science doesn’t differentiate between “hemp” and “marijuana,” the law does. Some cannabis plants contain less than 0.3% of THC, and are therefore considered industrial hemp, rather than marijuana. This distinction is very important, not only in the potential benefits and effects, but also in their legality.

When Congress enacted the 2014 Farm Bill, it defined hemp as distinct from marijuana for the first time under our U.S. Code. This legislation was intended to create an incentive and policy directive for the agricultural sector as a whole to consider hemp as a viable cash crop. This assessment does not seek to undermine the cannabis flower market, but looks at other cannabinoids as ingredients for therapeutic/pharmaceutical products (medicines, creams, balms and lotions), consumer products (candies, beverages and foods) and supplements. Essentially, if a cannabinoid is extracted from the cannabis plant, it is combined with other materials, compounds and ingredients in order to form a finished good. This is only one segment of the modern-day hemp marketplace – the cannabinoid submarket.

Cannabis plants, which include marijuana and hemp, contain more than 100 chemical substances called cannabinoids. Some are psychoactive – which means they change how your brain functions – and some aren’t. Besides THC and “CBD” (cannabidiol, a class of cannabinoid which has no psychoactive effect, and the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis), more than 100 other cannabinoids have been identified. Cannabinoids have served numerous roles in medicine, culture and recreation for almost as long as recorded human history. The earliest known use of cannabinoids dates back 5,000 years ago in modern Romania, while the documentation of the earliest medical dates back to around 400 AD. However, formal extraction, isolation and structural elucidation of cannabinoids have taken place relatively recently in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since then, numerous advancements have been made in further isolating naturally occurring cannabinoids. In the United States today, the FDA has approved medical uses for some cannabinoids, including treatment of seizures and nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy. 

Depending on the cannabinoid, the route of administration will vary. Cannabinoids may be administered orally via incorporation in consumed food products such as infused teas or oils or via inhalation by smoking. Although smoking cannabis is traditionally the most common method of cannabinoid administration, vaporization with e-cigarettes is continuing to become more popular, offering a more rapid, less carcinogenic method of delivering cannabinoids from the lungs into the bloodstream.


Sometimes referred to as “marijuana lite” or “diet weed”, Delta-8 is typically manufactured in concentrated amounts from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), which, firstly, means that it qualifies as a hemp product under the Farm Bill, and meets the standard for being federally legal.

There are many ways to use Delta-8, including: in edible products such as brownies or gummies; in liquid extracts called tinctures; inhaled as vaped concentrates like oil or wax; smoked as buds, flowers or as hemp on which Delta-8 concentrate has been sprayed; orally via capsules; and via the skin, through creams, lotions or patches.

Why is there such a growing demand for Delta-8? For starters, its chemical structure is similar to that of its well-known cousin, Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9 THC), the main compound in marijuana that gets you high. Delta-8 produces a fuzzy, euphoric high that’s said to be similar to that from marijuana, but milder. Potential medical benefits of the isolated compound Delta-8 THC may include: pain relief, improved sleep quality, the calming of an overactive nervous system or immune system, improved appetite, sensory overstimulation prevention and reduced inflammation.

Currently, Delta-8 THC is legal at the federal level, but it’s not legal in every state. With that said, laws regarding the production, sale and use of Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are continually evolving. While CBD doesn’t have any intoxicating effects, Delta-8 THC has similar psychoactive properties to Delta-9 THC, although it is generally less potent than Delta-9.

Both Delta-8 and Delta-9 are forms of THC. But when people refer to THC, they usually mean the Delta-9 that’s found in high concentrations in marijuana. Delta-9 THC is the major naturally-occurring intoxicating component of the cannabis plant. When someone smokes or consumes Delta-9 THC beyond a certain threshold, they typically experience a “high.”

In states where Delta-9 THC is legal, cannabis dispensaries offer products in many forms, including gummies, cookies, candies, infused beverages, tinctures, vaping cartridges, topical lotions and pre-rolled “joints.” Delta-9 THC can be smoked or vaporized in flower (bud) form without requiring extraction, although edibles, topicals and other preparations do require an extraction process. On the other hand, nearly all Delta-8 THC products are synthesized, extracted and purified from Cannabis-sourced CBD.

Potential benefits of consuming Delta-9 THC may include: relaxation, decreased anxiety, increased appetite, feelings of happiness or exhilaration, heightened imagination and improved sensory perception.

Also, benefits are seen in people with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), neurodegenerative disorders, seizures, autism and autoimmune diseases, just to name a few.

Hemp refers to cannabis plants often designated for industrial use containing less than the legal threshold of THC in the US. Other than the THC content, there’s one other difference between hemp and marijuana: legality. The 2014 Farm Bill made it legal to grow hemp, or cannabis containing less than 0.3 percent THC, throughout the United States. It also made hemp-derived CBD products federally legal. 

Hemp, or cannabis with less than 0.3 percent THC, can also be grown to create other kinds of products, including: paper, clothing, textiles, animal feed, plastic and food products. Hemp seed is quite nutritious, as it’s a complete protein that’s also high in fiber. Because hemp grows faster than trees and other crops, it’s considered to be a more sustainable way of making products like paper and textiles.

The non-cannabinoid, industrial hemp marketplace involves fibers, grain, seeds and hurd/woody core. These segments have long been in existence and have seen marginal market-based economic success over the last several decades. Yet, with a renewed focus on hemp production due to its generally positive environmental implications and that it utilizes significantly less water than most other cash crops/commodities, it has moved to a greater position of emphasis. This began with the 2014 Farm Bill and its focus on energizing the American farmer with the wide-ranging promise of hemp.

The hemp plant serves a number of different industries, and we’ve seen many innovative industrial products made of hemp. Hemp is widely noted for its 50,000+ uses and it’s just getting started.

For thousands of years, industrial hemp was utilized in building projects and there’s tremendous promise for hemp materials used for construction today. However, if hemp is truly the efficient, environmentally-friendly, and water-friendly plant that we know it is, then it’s only a matter of time, effort, investment, infrastructure and energy before these other uses come to widespread fruition.

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in Cannabis. Cannabis plants generate THCA rather than THC in their natural state. THCA is converted into a psychoactive THC chemical when heated, smoked or vaped. It is a non-intoxicating chemical present in Cannabis, and is the precursor of the well-known hallucinogenic chemical present in cannabis, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

The health benefits provided by THCA are best absorbed by the body through a raw method of consumption such as cannabis juicing. THCA works to relieve inflammation, pain and is an ideal cannabinoid for treating symptoms of such conditions as arthritis and seizures (including epilepsy). 

THCA is an effective neuroprotectant, so it is beneficial in the treatment of such conditions as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It can also help to stimulate the appetite in patients suffering from cachexia and anorexia nervosa. Most impressively, research shows that THC-A helps to slow the proliferation of cancerous cells.

Note: Although all hemp-derived cannabidiol products are legal federally, check with your state on state laws, as restrictions vary locally.

“Kratom” is the name of a tropical plant related to coffee trees, which grows naturally in Southeast Asia. It is also the common name for the product derivative from the Asian evergreen tree, which contains a chemical called mitragynine, an alkaloid that acts on the brain opiate receptors and alters mood. 

Historically, Asian farm workers chewed kratom leaves for energy and pain relief, to work harder and longer. Today, kratom is most often taken orally, for recreation or as an herbal supplement. How kratom effects you may depend on how much you consume. Low doses of kratom are associated with uplifting effects, increased sociability and higher levels of alertness, while higher doses activate the sedative effects. In small doses, kratom is popular as an energy and mood booster similar to coffee use, recreationally like beer and wine and in larger amounts as an alternative pain management. Kratom is also being considered as a therapy treatment for opioid addiction recovery.

Federally, kratom is considered an over-the-counter (OTC) herbal supplement, and it is not yet FDA-approved. The American Kratom Association (AKA), a consumer advocacy group, estimates that 10-16 million people in the U.S. regularly consume kratom in the form of leaves, beverages, edibles or powders.

Taking kratom along with other medications or substances can be harmful. Check with your state laws before considering distributing kratom, as the substance is illegal to distribute in any form in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin. Other kratom regulations in various states include age restrictions, marketing, labeling and percentage laws.

With the laws concerning cannabis varying dramatically from state to state, many consumers who engage in the higher life find themselves in need of a sudden cleanse. Whatever the reason for wanting the remnants of marijuana out of the body as quickly as possible, there are a number of ways to do it.

Drug tests for cannabis measure THC and its by-products, or metabolites. These metabolites remain in the system long after the effects of the drug have worn off.

THC is a stubborn compound, because it’s fat-soluble, which means that the it binds to fat molecules in the body. And because CBD comes from the same plant, cannabis, which has low amounts of THC, trace amounts of THC in a CBD product could be enough to fail a drug test!

Some ‘detoxes’ mask the substance present in the body for a period of time, giving the user a temporary ‘clean’; others work with the body’s natural detoxification process to totally eliminate metabolites from the user’s system. Some drug detoxes are designed to flush one specific drug, while others clear traces of a number of substances.

Detoxes come in a number of forms generally designed to aid the user in passing a hair test, urine test or saliva swab test. Detox products come in varieties such as pills and supplements, drinks, shampoo for hair tests and even mouthwashes for mouth swabs! Many ‘detox kits’ include testing strips, as well, so consumers can see for themselves if the product has worked.

Urine tests are the most commonly employed drug tests. When all else fails for your concerned customer, synthetic urine is legal to sell as novelty.

Mushroom wellness products made with medicinal mushrooms do not contain psychoactive compounds like psilocybin. Rather, the majority of ‘magic mushroom’ products on the market today come from the Amanita Musacria, a poisonous psychoactive fungus known for its distinctive red and white appearance. The psychoactive compound in Amanita mushrooms is muscimol, which experts say is less hallucinogenic than psilocybin, although it is said to have a magical effect, among a number of other potential health benefits. 

According to the STNR Creations Team, “Amanita Muscaria are indeed a poisonous mushroom if eaten directly from the ground. Amanita Muscaria mushrooms naturally contain high levels of Ibotenic Acid, which is why anyone who intends to use them for edible products must first decarboxylate the mushrooms. Ibotenic acid is not present in any form of the mushroom that has been properly neutralized.”

Decarboxylated Amanita extract products offer varying potencies, or doses, formulated to provide the potential health benefits of mushrooms without causing intoxication. All mushroom products feature one type of mushroom or combine several types together. While the benefits may vary depending on the type of mushroom in question, some holistic health benefits offered by mushroom products in general include immune support, brain health, stress relief and antioxidant support.

Amanita products are designed to provide an overall sense of contentment and positivity, offering consumers a natural way to elevate their mood. Through the consumption of Amanita products, consumers may encounter a significant expansion of creativity and imagination, likened to a psychedelic experience.

Because Amanita binds heavily with GABA(A) receptors, the products can provide pain relief without the use of prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs. Amanita products may also help alleviate stress and anxiety by reducing physical discomfort.

Additional natural mushroom additives such as lion’s mane and cordyceps promote immune support, cognitive enhancement, stress reduction, as well as the potential to enhance energy levels and mental clarity.  Another popular mushroom addition renowned for their adaptogenic qualities, Reishi mushrooms can promote tranquility, relaxation and a healthy sleep cycle.

Mushroom gummies

Mushroom gummies are most popular form of mushroom products on the market and provide a delightful and convenient option for consuming medicinal mushrooms. By encapsulating the therapeutic compounds in a chewable form, manufacturers aim to provide an enjoyable and effective route to incorporate the benefits of mushrooms into the consumer’s daily routine.

Mushroom capsules

Mushroom capsules offer a concentrated dose of mushroom extracts in a pill. Capsules provide the benefits of mushroom supplements in a more traditional supplemental form.

Mushroom powders

Mushroom powders can be blended into beverages or food, providing a convenient way to incorporate mushrooms into the consumers’ daily diet.

Mushroom liquid extracts

Mushroom liquid extracts are highly concentrated mushroom formulations that can be added to beverages or taken directly. With quick absorption, liquid extracts provide a convenient option for those seeking a potent mushroom supplement that they don’t have to wait to digest.

Because Amanita Muscaria mushrooms aren’t classified as controlled substances like psilocybin-containing mushrooms, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate them as they do with cannabinoids and other commonly consumed counterculture products. Amanita mushroom products are legal in every state except for Louisiana, and are rising in popularity quickly.

Water pipes

A water pipe, commonly referred to as a “bong,” is a filtration device generally used for smoking cannabis, CBD, tobacco or other herbal substances.

Many users enjoy water pipes for their “clean” smoking experience, which is said to be less harsh than with other pipes or papers. Bongs come in various shapes, sizes and materials, with features such as ice chambers contributing to the overall smoking experience, and others just designed to please the eye.


A hookah is a type of waterpipe used to smoke tobacco. To smoke hookah, flavorful tobacco mixtures are indirectly heated using coals or wood embers.  

The tobacco used in a hookah is called shisha. Shisha is a sticky mixture of tobacco and natural and artificial flavorings which comes in a variety of flavors, with the most popular being fruits and mint. The aroma and taste of the smoke can be an enjoyable sensory experience, and many people appreciate the opportunity to try new and interesting flavor combinations when smoking shisha.

Smoking hookah is also a popular social activity in many cultures around the world, and it has been around for centuries. Today, hookah is growing in popularity in the United States.

Smoking shisha can have a calming, relaxing effect on the body and mind. While shisha smoke does contain nicotine, the amount is usually much lower than what is found in cigarette smoke.


A pipe is a smoking tool for smoking tobacco or herbs, which consists simply of a mouthpiece, a stem and a bowl. The advantages of a pipe as a smoking device are its accessibility, reusability and general convenience. Some consumers also collect pipes in different designs and styles of all kinds. Pipes come in a variety of materials, like metal, stone, ceramic and silicone; however glass is generally the most popular.

E-cigarette, or “vaping” products, can be used to deliver nicotine, cannabis (THC, CBD) and other herbs. Vaping devices have a heating element that atomizes a liquid solution of these concentrated substances, which becomes a vapor the user inhales. Vaping concentrated herbs allow the effects to be felt almost immediately.

Vaping offers an enjoyable alternative experience to smoking. Many people find vaping relaxing, and it has become a popular social community. Avid consumers seek out diverse flavors of vapes, which are constantly being innovated.

Vapes come both with cartridges filled with cannabinoids, as well as with nicotine and other herbs; however the bodies of vapes are typically specialized and stylized to their intended use, and are not interchangeable.
