The world of legal cannabis is a stark departure from the previous illicit one. Gone are the days when marijuana buds are compacted into dense, unidentifiable bricks, only to be ripped apart and sub-divided into ziplock bags where they would inevitably dry out.
Now that cannabis can be legally sold in daylight in a regulated environment both growers and consumers are able to stop and finally appreciate the beauty that well grown, cultivated and processed flower presents.
Businesses and users alike are taking appreciation for cannabis to the next level in an industry movement that is placing greater and greater emphasis on quality over quantity.
One company that is looking to further elevate cannabis use into the world of luxury is Cannaseur.
Premium Humidor Stash Boxes
Cannaseur makes and sells beautiful mahogany wood humidors for cannabis flower.
Maintaining optimal humidity levels (55% for fresh flower) is key to preserving the longevity and flavor profile of your particular flower so having a stash box that has a built-in humidification system is key if you’re buying larger quantities of bud at a time and want to maximize its longevity.
The Cannaseur (combination of “cannabis” and “connoisseur”) is helping to re-define what it means to be a cannabis user.
For decades, terms like “stoner” and “pothead” dominated the public perception of cannabis use but with legalization and ever increasing quality of products, Cannaseur is banking on a new public pride in enjoying truly premium flower in a premium setting.
Built of sustainably-sourced mahogany and walnut woods Cannaseur humidors are meant to be displayed rather than tucked away in a drawer. The outside of the boxes are sanded smooth and perfectly finished, similar to an heirloom grandfather clock.
Humidors are available in 1 or 2 jar configurations in mahogany or walnut. Each jar’s volume is the equivalent to approximately 25 grams of whole flower. Humidity is measured and monitored via built-in precision German-engineered hygrometers.
In addition to 1 jar vs 2 jar configurations and two wood options you can also select a layout that is the size of a 2 jar but instead of second jar inside there is an equipment box where you can stash cleaning tools, a pipe or other smoking accessories.
Finally, if you want to keep your beautiful buds out for the world to see in their mahogany humidor but are worried about access you can order both the 1 jar and 2 jar styles with built-in locks
Prices start at $319 for the single-jar, no-lock model and go up to $399 for the 2-jar, locked models.
Visiting Cannaseur’s website however it appears these models can occasionally be bought at discounted sale prices and when we last checked the unlocked models could be had for as low as $259 a piece.
Yes, these prices are higher than a shoebox or Altoid mints tin, but these are completely different products. Storing your weed in a non-sealed and dry environment means it will dry out fast.
It’s also worth noting that quality goods come with a price tag. These humidors are fine pieces of craftsmanship and made of legendarily luxurious hard woods that have long been prized for their durability and beauty.
If you’re looking to increase the classiness of your smoking experience or just want to pop-off your living room with a finishing touch conversation piece, then Cannaseur humidors are most definitely worth your consideration.

Interview with Cannaseur Co-Founder Scott Lyons
We were curious about what drove the creation of the Cannaseur brand and what role it has identified for itself in the exciting and fast-growing legal cannabis space so we reached out to Cannaseur Co-Founder Scott Lyons to ask him a few questions about his brand and his products.
Herb CEO: Hello Scott, thanks again for taking the time to share a little bit more about your company. Could you start by giving us a quick overview of what Cannaseur stands for, how it was developed, what your core products are and what kind of niche you’re carving out for yourselves?
Scott: Cannaseur exists to help elevate the cannabis experience. We’re working to shed the stoner stigma by bringing cannabis out of the closet and onto the coffee table. Our current product lineup consists solely of humidors designed specifically to keep your bud at the optimal humidity level. These aren’t just functional pieces, but very esthetically pleasing as well.
Herb CEO: With expanding legalization to the growing popularity of cannabis it seems the “good plant” is finally emerging not just as a grungy stoner thing but more of a normal working class lifestyle. Magazine’s like Broccoli and lifestyle brands like Tokyo Smoke are reflective of this emerging demographic of discerning smokers. Where does Cannaseur fit in and how do you see this trend changing/evolving in coming years?
Scott: This is exactly the type of lifestyle that we aim to imbue. We want to see cannabis and the associated experience accepted as no different than enjoying a good scotch. With legalization 2.0 on the horizon in Canada and the path that has been paved in certain US states, edibles/beverages and other formats should continue that trend towards normalization of the ‘good plant’.
Herb CEO: You definitely know more about pampering flower than we do so could you briefly go over the importance at keeping your herb at an optimal humidity level? Could you share what makes Cannaseur humidors better than other traditional storing methods popular today?
Scott: It’s important to keep your herb stored at the optimal humidity level, so as to avoid a harsh bud (being stored too dry) and to avoid mold (being stored too humid). The optimal level promotes a proper smoke and maintains those hypnotic aromas and flavours.
There are other storage methods on the market for sure, but none that balances the humidity, while also providing an elegant, substantial storage unit that you’d want to put on display.
The option exists to use a standard humidor typically geared towards cigars, but there are some notable differences with our humidors that make them tailored towards cannabis – 1) they are lined with mahogany rather than cedar, as cedar can impart flavours; 2) they are regulated to a slightly lower relative humidity level than cigars, promoting the proper balance for cannabis; 3) the storage configurations are perfect for cannabis 🙂
Herb CEO: Is there any news or anything share-worthy you’d like to share about Cannaseur, or the flower pampering market at large?
Scott: We currently have some other configurations in the works that we’re excited to share very soon! These will allow a market that’s looking for a variety of strains to make use of our humidors.
Herb CEO Summary
Cannaseur represents everything we hope the cannabis industry will become and more. It encapsulates elements of the smokers lifestyle we hold highly, including placing a focus on the flower, using sustainable materials, and featuring expert craftsmanship to produce a product that is less 90’s college dormitory and more 50’s boardroom.
As the popularity of legal cannabis grows we here at Herb CEO expect brands to continue to look for ways to elevate the cannabis experience beyond grunge and wholly redefine at least elements of the industry to be reflective of the truly beautiful aesthetic that is inherent to quality cannabis cultivation, presentation and enjoyment.
