Cannabis honey from the Greenway Compassionate Relief collective. Greenway was one of the first permitted collectives in Santa Cruz. It was founded by a cancer survivor who hated feeling like a criminal coming in and out of collectives in Oakland.

These chocolate-caffeine-cannabis cookies by Budies are so new, the medicated version won't hit the market for another few weeks.

A professional chef helped create these cookies by Auntie's Edibles. Not only do they have dosing information - they also have a nutrition label.
Those fancy cup cake shops have nothing on these sweet cannabis treats.

This pipe by Lollipipe is pure sugar, but it works and could be used to smoke (with our without the white plastic toke pipe.) The pipes come in a variety of flavors - this one is blueberry.

An automatic roller sold by the Koala Company. Place marijuana and a sheet of paper in the fabric pouch inside the lid of the roller. Then, as you close the lid, the joint will automatically roll and pop out a slot in the top of the box.

LED Grow King's lights use only red and blue light since they're all a plant needs for photosynthesis. LED lights are more expensive to purchase, but use less energy and are cooler, so they're less of a fire danger.
