Top 10 Highlights of the Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo

Just two short weeks ago the 2017  Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo was held in Phoenix Arizona. And we had a U.S. Marijuana Dispensaries press member there to bring you (our beloved readers) the highlights from the event. While you really should have been there, we’ve got the next best thing … Here are the top 10 highlights from the 2017 Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo, because maybe you were stuck on the couch.

  1. Blazy Susan. This Colorado-based company not only delivers a unique table-top lazy Susan that they have called the Blazy Susan but they also created one of the coolest women’s cannabis products in the industry known as Pink Papers. These feminine rolling papers are made with premium materials, and they are also naturally dyed a light pink so they are oh-so sweet as you medicate.

  2. Bags of Bags. When you want to make sure that nobody can smell your goodies, store them in the Bags of Bags Scent Guard Bags. Made with a recloseable zipper, these locking baggies will keep your good stuff in, and the scent OUT. Ultra-affordable you can slip an entire baggie inside these odor absorbing zip-locking bags, or just toss anything used inside them to keep wafting smoking fragrances from entering other environments you want to keep fresh. Bags of Bags Scent Guard Bags are a MUST for any stoner.
