When it comes to buying bongs and other smoking used to inhale the wondrous cannabis plant, a whole array of concerns can arise. Due to the plant's legal status in some states or consumers’ preferences for privacy, a trip to the local store can be nerve wracking and ordering from an online headshop may feel confusing or even dangerous. But we’ll let you in on a little secret: there’s no need to worry. Rather than take our word for it, keep reading to find out why online headshops may be the very best choice to calm your nerves.
The primary worry for most is whether or not it’s legal to purchase marijuana paraphernalia from an online headshop, particularly in states where it’s still illegal. Rest assured that even in states with an active ban on cannabis, ordering from an online headshop is perfectly legal. Water pipes, dab rigs, hand pipes and other marijuana related devices are multipurpose items. They are often used for smoking tobacco, aromatherapy blends, or legal concentrates (CBD, for instance, which is federally legal). Purchasing one of these items in no way implicates you as breaking the law. This is the same with brick-and-mortar stores and explains why they can be easily found regardless of what the legal status of marijuana is in any given area - they’re marketed as tobacco smoke shops, which may seem like a tricky go around, but the products can be and are genuinely used for tobacco smoking.
Privacy can be another issue of concern when it comes to buying from an online headshop. In most cases, an online headshop is well aware that you may not wish to advertise your purchase to your neighbors and takes great care to maintain your discretion with their packaging. The company name will be hidden and no neighbors or roommates will have any idea about what you receive. Another mark of a good online store is credit card confidentiality. The store will not have access to your credit card beyond the last four numbers. The best stores will take extra steps to ensure your privacy. Brick-and-mortar shops are automatically less discrete by the simple fact that you have to physically walk in and out of the establishment. But thanks to online headshops like ours, you can order affordable pipes, bongs, and more with the utmost discretion.
You may be worried about how quickly you will receive your order. Good online stores will have the means to ship your products very quickly. In fact, many will be able to deliver to you within the same day you place your order. You don't have to go through the hassle and potential embarrassment of going into a store yourself and, before you know it, your package will have arrived fuss-free and no one will be any the wiser.
A massive benefit to online shopping, as many of us know, is price. In most cases, you can often get products cheaper online and online headshops are no different. Online stores have the ability to work in strategic ways with manufacturers and distributors so that they obtain a larger quantity of stock at a better price. This means drastic savings for them, which they’re then able to pass on to the consumers of many online headshops. Shopping in a store can be nice and personal but shopping at an online headshop is equally effective with the added bonus of being potentially more private, less expensive, and hassle free. So long as you shop at a quality store, the online experience can make your life a lot easier.
