Allume’s seasonal Chill Box is a true labour of love. We search for the coolest brands in cannabis to curate a unique assortment of lifestyle essentials; it’s a great way to test out new products and different methods of consumption, while elevating the cannabis experience. The goods featured in our new fall edition speak to the renaissance of pot culture: high design ceramics, hemp-infused skincare, collectibles and more.
Let’s get acquainted with our dynamic collaborators.
The 411: The Founded by Victoria Ashley, Laundry Day offers a line of modern smokeware crafted to flip the narrative on cannabis use through a high design approach. After seeking proper accessories for years, Victoria – who uses cannabis as a natural sleep aid – came face to face with a notable gap in the market. Despite the increased acceptance of cannabis, product design continued to lack creativity.
What we love most about LD: The brand is on a mission to provide more approachable, design-forward products that dispel stigmas, redefine outdated expectations, cater to modern voices and elevate the industry’s status quo. What’s more, all pipes double as decor staples. Win-win.
Featured Chill Box product: 1.25″ Rolling papers.
Side note: LD’s latest collection will be available on shop-allume.com this fall! Here’s a peek at what’s fresh, including their cool new packaging…
The 411: Founded by Brett Heyman, Edie Parker sprang from her love of mid-century style. Inspired by acrylic bags made in America in the 1950s and 1960s, Heyman collected vintage handbags and researched their long-lost designers. When she could no longer find the covetable clutches at vintage and second hand shops, she decided to remake them for a new generation.
Why we love EPF: Brett recently launched a line of colourful collectibles for those in high places! As the self-proclaimed first brand to fully merge the worlds of fashion and flower, Edie Parker Flower offers fresh ways to chill at home or light up a night out.
Featured products: A goodie bag featuring EPF floral rolling papers, stickers, odour pods, cannabis-free candies and matches.

The 411: Genna Williams is a multidisciplinary designer who finds joy in making minimal, functional ceramics. After graduating from the Savannah College of Art & Design in 2014 with a degree in Furniture Design, she moved to Austin and started building her very own ceramics studio as an escape from her day job. Her products – from rolling trays to pipes – are thoughtfully handmade to enhance you sesh and decor.
Why we love GWC: Genna uses her extensive experience in home furnishings, lighting, and furniture to inspire her sleek ceramic forms. She is also proud to be a founding member of an all-female artist collective in east Austin called Broad Studios.
Featured product: The Snake Pipe.

The 411: For years, terpene products have been dedicated to vaporizer pens and edibles, leaving out options for those who prefer to roll. Meraki decided to seize on the opportunity by creating a unique alternative that doesn’t combust those valuable terps! The brand’s tips are made from wood, then soaked in a blend of terpenes and warmed through the natural heat of the smoke; this allows for an effective and delicious dose of terpenes.
Why we love Meraki: Tips are infused with a proprietary blend of organic food-grade terpenes meant to boost the properties of your chosen flower. Its particular formula contains terpenes present in cannabis strains, which allows one to savour and feel the effects on a deeper level.
Featured product: Myrcene-infused Sayonara tips.

Why we love AÔ: They had us at “From the Earth to Your Skin.” All products are made by hand with care, using only “active” ingredients for therapeutic benefits with no filler, synthetics, parabens, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate, petroleum and mineral oils. Everything is crafted with plant-based food grade oils, steam distilled therapeutics grade essential oils and certified organic ingredients.

The 411: Founded by Jennifer Skog, MJ Lifestyle Magazine is devoted to fostering a community of strong women through femininity, open-mindfulness and empowerment.

The 411: Created for “those going somewhere, nowhere and everywhere”, Another Room is a cheeky, animated delight of a brand. Its signature product, The Travel Kit, features key accessories you can take anywhere; a carrying case, doob tube, compact mirror and lighter.
Why we love AR: Awesome vibe and philosophy. Another Room signifies the “…clarity you feel when you’re high, feels like you have been granted access to another room. A room which you may not have known to be there before. A room where suddenly, everyday is Sunday. Welcome, we’re glad you made it.”
