“I already know what kind of weed I like, which pipes work for me, and who makes the best blunts. So why would I need a marijuana subscription box?”
If you’re still finding your way in the cannabis world and want the fastest avenue to exploring all this industry has to offer in terms of papers, pipes, trays, wrappers, grinders and of course, snacks, then a subscription box is for you!
Benefits of a Subscription Box Over One-Off Purchases
With a marijuana subscription box, you can get your hands on some of the latest and coolest weed accessories. Every month, you’ll get an incredible selection of pipes, papers, and cleaning tools that would make any weed-lover jump for joy.
When you subscribe to a plan, a company will send you its best products, all neatly wrapped in some funky packaging to your doorstep every month.
This gives you a very quick and broad overview of the cannabis accessories industry at a cost much lower than if you were to go to your local head shop and buy all of the individual items at full retail price.

Before You Get a Marijuana Subscription Box, Consider This
First, think about the price-quality ratio for every box you want to buy. Some companies (none of which are on this list) put too much filler in their boxes. Instead of giving you the essentials and something new to play with, they’ll just send you a bunch of stickers or lanyards.
So before you settle on a box, make sure it features the things you actually use in your everyday smoking.
Also, consider what kinds of themes the company picks for its subscription boxes. For example, if you often smoke with your partner, there are a ton of boxes with a sexy or sultry theme.
On the other hand, if you’re a loner stoner, you might be better off getting a box that’s tailored for just one person.
1. Daily High Club Box — Best in Show
Daily High Club is one of the biggest and most popular marijuana subscription companies out there. The DHC sells pretty much everything from rolling papers to dab rigs, glass pipes, accessories, and apparel.
Also, they often do collaborations and have featured some celebs like Eric Khan, Chanel West Coast, and Tommy Chong! Another cool thing about the DHC is that in addition to their regular monthly boxes, you can also buy ones from previous collections.
The Subscription Selection
Once you become a Daily High Club member, you’ll get to pick from three different marijuana boxes:
- All Natural
- El Primo
Rawsentials is the DHC’s cheapest box that costs only $9.99 a month for some premium Raw goodies! Of course, you’ll also have to pay for shipping which is $2 for the US and $3.25 for the rest of the world.
But when it’s all said and done, you’ll have a box full of all your essentials for less than five bucks.
In the Rawsentials, you’ll get:
- Raw all natural rolling papers
- Raw natural filter tips
- Raw clipper lighter
- Raw branded stickers
If you’re looking for something more than just rolling papers and want to up your smoking game, you should go for the Connoisseur. In this box, you’ll get seven to nine carefully selected products for just $10 a month.
You’ll have the essentials, like rolling papers, lighters, and tips. But DHC will also send you a couple of wildcards, like snacks and cleaning accessories. So if you’re not a weed connoisseur by now, you’ll definitely become one with this box.
EL PRIMO is the big daddy, the DHC box to rule them all, with a unique theme every month. It comes with about a dozen items every time, and you’ll get a huge selection of products from different companies.
Not only that, but every EL PRIMO box also comes with a glass pipe that’s fancy enough to put on your mantle.
That, coupled with some cleaning accessories, snacks, and the essentials makes the EL PRIMO box the one of best on the market.
Pros & Cons of Daily High Club
The pros are this is one of the MOST popular stoner subscription services and have been around since the beginning of this business model. Boasting clients such as Erick Khan they’re definitely involved with the heavyweights and we can’t fault their eclectic mix of included products.
Who this may not be for would be anyone with niche preferences. For example if you’re only into glassware you might get annoyed by all the other non-glassware additions. Likewise after a few months you may run out of space to store everything, although gifting stoner gear to friends is always an option.
2. Hemper Box — Best Custom Products
Hemper is currently killing the game with its subscription boxes, and their customer base is growing by the hundreds every month. No matter which box you get, Hemper will send you the smoking essentials, plus a fun little surprise.
Just like with DHC, if none of the boxes that are available now spark joy, you can go through the bestseller list and find something you like.
If you like the company’s choice and service, you can opt to have your box delivered once a month, or every two or three months.
The Subscription Selection
Once you settle on a box, all you have to do is select the frequency of delivery and a payment method. Then, on the 13th or 15th every month, Hemper will send it to you in discreet packaging.
With the Build-a-Box Core, you can pick out your six essential products and have Hemper deliver them to your doorstep. There are eight different categories you can choose from:
- Rolling papers
- Flavored rolling papers
- Cleaning supplies
The Core Box has an excellent value for the price and Hemper has a wide selection of products. So if you don’t like leaving your home to get your essentials every time, the Core is for you.
The Build-a-Box Plus is pretty similar to the Core, except that you get a premium item along with your six essentials.
In addition to the categories above, you’ll get to choose from the premium tab, which features products like:
- Rolling trays
- Glass pads
- Joint rollers
- Smaller pipes
- Hemper Keepers
The Hemper Keepers are pretty cool storage pieces that have herb grinders and removable tethers. Also, the Keepers have smell-proof tops and are small enough so that you can keep them on your belt or keychain.
The Hemper Box is the company’s bestseller and it provides incredible value for its price. In this box, you’ll get 11 items with a retail value of over $125.
Each box features a couple of products from the essential and premium line.
But more importantly, the experts from Hemper will give you a unique mystery glass every month. Also, if you decide to prepay for a few boxes, you can get a discount of up to 15%!
Hemper Box Pros & Cons
Without a doubt the biggest “pro” of Hemper is the ability to customize your box. Getting a box that’s 50% stuff you don’t want because you had no control over what was curated can be a buzz kill and Hemper aims to remedy that with their “build-a-box” service. The less waste the better in our opinion!
Hemper is the biggest competitor to Daily High Club in our opinion and offers a unique product in that there seems to be more consistency with theme-matching than DHC at times. On the whole Hemper is known for quality (particularly glass pieces) more than variety.
3. 420 Goody Box — Best Assorted Goodies ***Use discount code HERBCEO for 10% off your order***
The 420 Goody Box is possibly one of the best marijuana subscription boxes for all those who love weed accessories more than anything. The boxes offer a wide variety of snacks, gadgets, and gizmos that you’ll never want to put down.
The Subscription Selection
When you order off the 420 Goody Box website, you’ll have two boxes to choose from: The OG and the Top Shelf. Both have monthly themes and are simply loaded with all kinds of accessories that every weed-lover is bound to enjoy.
The OG Goody Box is the company’s cheapest and most popular box, and it features five to nine surprise items.
Even though most of the items in it are a mystery, 420 Goody Box guarantees that you’ll get either a vape or glass pipe every month.
The retail value of the OG is over $100 and you’ll get free shipping with your order. Also, 420 Goody Box will send it to your door on the 20th every month in discreet packaging.
Inside the Top Shelf box, you’ll find 7–13 mystery items every month that have a retail value of over $200. Inside, there’s a vape pen or glass piece, along with some candy, cleaning products, and much more.
420 Goody Box sends out the Top Shelf packages on the 25th every month. Of course, like with most companies, you can prepay for your boxes a couple of months in advance.
By doing so, you can save yourself a couple of bucks and the hassle of having to order a new one every month.
Pros & Cons of the 420 Goody Box
Personally we like the 420 Goody Box because they seem to place equal importance not just on gear like lighters and papers but also on snacks! Don’t worry, you’ll still get a glass piece every time and some fun other materials but you will also almost guaranteed get multiple snack options.
In terms of cons, the balance of fun materials and snacks may detract if you’re serious about glass for example. If that’s the case I’d recommend the Top Shelf box, which is more but comes with legit top-shelf glass every month making it the better option for glass aficionados.
4. SensiBox — Best Themes ***Use promo code HERBCEO10 for 10% off your total order!***
As a newcomer in the weed subscription game, SensiBox by Spiced UP has had great success, all thanks to its high-quality boxes.
The Sensi boxes are curated with the everyday smoker in mind, and each one has all the smoking essentials along with a few unique pieces.
When you log onto the SensiBox website, you’ll get to choose from three different boxes:
- Special edition
The company ships the boxes between the 10th and 13th every month, and shipping is free if you live in the US.
Of course, if you don’t want to bother with renewing your subscription every month, you can also prepay for three or six months.
The Original SensiBox features a unique piece of glassware designed by the Art of Smoke each month. It’s usually a small glass pipe with some cool design or in the shape of an animal, for example.
In addition to the pipe, you’ll also get six more items that can range from the essentials like cones and rolling papers to jewelry and mugs.
On the other hand, if you go for the SensiLight box, you’ll only get five items instead of seven. The biggest difference between the two boxes is that this one has more of your day-to-day smoking items.
Also, if you order the SensiLight, you won’t get Art of Smoke glassware.
But the company sometimes lets you add something extra to your box, like a piece of jewelry for a small fee.
The Special Edition box is designed to be a one-time purchase and you can’t get a subscription plan for it. It can make the perfect stoner gift and it features things like:
- Smoking glass tips
- A mug
- Swag gifts, like pins, fresheners, and lanyards
SensiBox Pros & Cons
SensiBox is a smaller player in the field and for that reason we can’t help but root a bit for the underdog. The strength of Sensi is the more refined curation. There is less emphasis on snacks and gimmicky stuff and more of a focus on quality wrappers, glass, and trays. Most of the sample products available we’d happily buy as one-offs which speaks to the quality.
In terms of cons, there doesn’t appear to be quite as much customization as some of the other options so if you want some things and not others you’re kind of out of luck. The vibe of Sensi is pretty unique, more refined, more adult than say 420 Goody Box or DHC. If you’re looking for endless lovely Instagram feature pieces this is the one for you.
5. The Cannabox Smoking Subscription Box
Last, but certainly not least, we have Cannabox, the “OG smokers subscription box”, not just self-declared but evidenced by their popularity on Reddit as well among the stoner crowds..
When we say OG we mean it. Cannabox was launched way back in 2012 as an answer to Lootcrate, which was exploding in popularity at the time.
Cannabox founder Michael Berk realized there wasn’t a useful subscription service for cannabis lovers who, didn’t always feel like getting up and driving to a store to stock up on rolling papers or filters for example.
Out of this gap in the market Cannabox was born and as of 2020 it was served over 11,000 box subscribers.
Curated by potheads and 420 aficionados the Cannabox comes out with a new theme each month to keep things interesting and regularly include goodies from big names like Raw, Grav Labs and OCB.
The Subscription Selection
Cannabox is pretty simple, you choose between two box tiers depending on how much stuff you want. You then choose your pricing plan which get’s cheaper the longer your plan.
So, you can do a one-time purchase at $35.99 or you can do a pay-as-you-go month-to-month that starts at $30.99/month or you can pony up for 3 months which drops the box price to $29.99/month and if you want the ultimate bargain, you can buy 6 months worth at just $28.99/month.
If you chief kief on the daily then going longer term makes sense as there is no doubt you’ll blow through the supplies in each box.
If you are an occasional tolker then the one-off purchase might be smarter to test the waters so to speak and see if you can even consume all the goodies contained within.
The rad part about Cannabox is they’re not just a monthly smoker supply delivery company they also have a full-fledged shop on their website where you can also buy higher priced items like full-sized bongs and digital vaporizers like the latest PAX for example or the LEVO II cannabis oil infuser machine.
Pros & Cons of Cannabox
Of all the subscription boxes Cannabox is the one that has evolved the most over time and that gives us confidence in recommending it if you’re looking for a brand that won’t shut down overnight and be there for you in the long run, like a subscription should be!
The pros of Cannabox include being one of the largest longest running box brands, having very high average user reviews (via Reddit), AND they have a full-fledged head shop too in case you just want to buy single one-off products.
Cannabox does themed boxes probably better than anyone else, which is both a strength and a weakness. If you love surprises and are more of an eclectic collector this is great but if you’re very specific with your tastes and aesthetics some of the themes may disappoint. This isn’t a comment on quality, the curation is SUPERB, it’s just natural that picky people won’t vibe with all the very refined themes.
Subscription Boxes Summary
