Smoke Talent Industry Lifestyle is an idea born right here in Humboldt County.  Behind the Midway theater around the early 90's to be specific.  Then in 1998 Jason started blowing glass in the rear of Primal Decor.  With his partner, Jennifer, the races were on; selling glass on the road, in a display case at Primal and national head shop conventions.  In 2001 we moved down to Broadway.  Now seventeen years, many burns and a few good cuts later we present to you the finest glass shop experience available.  Our knowledgeable staff is ready to assist you in making the most of the cultural experience that is Northern California.

Justin is using a major-minor torch to create a custom cobalt spoon with "Humboldt" written in white letters.  Behind him you can see the kiln which is used to remove the stress that is left over in the glass from the fabrication process.  Then it is cooled slowly overnight.

Living in Humboldt County is something to be proud of.  And part of that pride is being at the top of your game when it comes to smoking, vaping and dabbing. 

Our experienced staff has an "all questions are good questions" policy to help even the newest noobs navigate the world of smokeware.  We also listen as many of our customers are experts themselves who have taught us a great deal.

All staff members also have access to a fully stocked glass shop in the rear of the building which gives them hands on experience with flameworking, coldworking, electroforming, plasma and neon.

All of this comes together to provide you with a nexus of knowledge available every day of the week.

We stock a crazy selection of top shelf e-liquids and juices.

Juiced

We firmly believe in harm reduction, and so we encourage everyone who is a cigarette smoker to improve their health by switching to e-cigs.

Hemp, rice, bleached, unbleached, king size, gummed, tips, rolls, ungummed for the pros and pre-rolled cones for the easy days.

Rolled

Our ever expanding selection of papers and wraps is something we take pride in.  And having your specific paper is important to us, so let us know you have the inside scoop on a good new paper.

Different vapes for different folks.  If you rarely smoke then you don't need to spend a lot.  But if you are an all day chuffer, then you owe it to yourself to invest in a high quality vape.

Vaped

We all love a fresh 'J' or snapping the bowl on a nice binger but for the heavy user vaporizing is definitely worth looking into.

These are some early Banjo works that we are proud to present.  Shown are both some of the earliest of the arachnid women series but also some ultra-rare Banjo hollow forms.

Heads

The term head shop derives from the use of consciousness enhancers to expand the mind.  "Feed your head" by Jefferson Airplane is apropos.  Head pieces themselves are far more than function.  They are created as elevated states of consciousness in the physical form.

This little rig was made early august '15 by Jason right here, in house.  A simple, to the point, design is combined with well planned color.

Dabbed

In the 17 years that we have been in this industry a lot has changed.  And we have been staying in the forefront so we can help you with the newest trends and techniques.  Concentrates are here to stay and you should be in the know.

Talent


Encouraging and supporting the talents of our staff and community.

Talent


Encouraging and supporting the talents of our staff and community.

Talent is part of our name.  And we have a dedicated strategy to encouraging talent.

First we want to support and grow the talent of our staff.  We enjoy "glass class" nights which are after hours labs in the glass studio directed at specific skill building.  When a team member has a particular talent such as graphic design or sculpting, we devote time for them to use that talent to make our shop better.  And we look to hire those who will bring new skills and talents to the team.  A feeling of pride and constant improvement is what we collectively and personally strive for.

Second, through what we choose to sell we want to provide access to the talents of the community.  We carry Humboldt Hands soap, Humboldt Hempwick, Humboldt Munchies and glass from many local artists.   Connecting you to the craftsmen and artists allows you to enjoy the talents of others in the community.

We also stock the biggest selection of skate safety gear, roller derby gear, and quad skates with hundreds and hundreds of miles.  This provides the women of roller derby a place to try before they buy so they can play to their fullest.

Lastly we support talent by giving back to the community that gives to us.  A thank you to the Goddess Games, Humboldt Roller Derby, the Spamly Cup, Pastels on the Plaza, and all the charities we have had the pleasure of working with to help make this a better place to live

Glass

Providing quality smokeware while pushing creativity forward

Since 1998 we have been behind the torch shaping both molten glass and smoke culture.  With new ideas being brought into reality it gives us great pride to work both with shop owners and individual retail customers.  In the end what we make are sacred objects, whether the user knows that or not.  Pipes are an intimate part our lives and we grow very attached to them both mentally and emotionally.  The right pipe not only works in the "that perfect" way, but it also carries the good times spent with friends watching a movie or catching a quiet sunset in solitude.  Like the ancient smokeware that is found today in medicine bags and cave dwellings, pipes are kept with people's most valued belongings.  In 10,000 years the archaeologists are going to be finding amazing glass pipes all over the world.  In a hope chest, next to a camp side fire pit or lost at the foot of strawberry rock they will find them, and they will have no choice but to conclude they are in fact sacred objects.

Processing

Products and assistance for the 215 compliant

While we are by no measure a grow store, we do provide excellent products and service regarding small scale 215 harvesting and processing.  We have bubble bags, fiskers, trim bins, and other necessary industry supplies for your home garden needs.

Also in stock is a solid selection of books on glass, growing, art, foraging, natural living, hot ladies, and of course dogs swimming underwater.

Most recommended right now is Jorge Cervantes Cannabis Encyclopedia which is essential a college level textbook on growing.
