Smack dab (weed pun intentional) in the middle of Arizona at 5,200 feet above sea level, you’ll find the beautiful city of Prescott. Full of mountains, lakes, meadows and wildlife, the rich history of Prescott is sure to take your breath away (or maybe that’s just from all the buds you’ve been smoking?). Nestled in the Pines of Prescott is our shop of the month – Ssmokin!
SSmokin is the premier smoke shop in Northern Arizona. It’s right by historic Whiskey Row in the heart of downtown Prescott – filled with bars, live music, and all that jazz. At SSmokin, they offer their customers the best products at the lowest prices.
Two years ago, Ssmokin set out to change the smoke shop experience. They wanted to offer their customers a modern experience while meeting all of their smoking needs. The doors to Ssmokin opened just over a year ago, and in that time, the shop has built an extensive and loyal customer base. At SSmokin, they strive to bring in new products weekly, as well as make sure their customers are seeing the items they want at prices they love. They offer a variety of smoking products and accessories, including glass blown by local Prescott artisans and Dime Bags merchandise.
Here’s what Ssmokin had to say about us (we’re only blushing a little):
“From the very beginning, we knew that we wanted Dime Bags to be a centerpiece of the products we offer here at SSmokin. It has been such a fun and rewarding process working with this great company! Our customers love Dime Bags and we are proud to offer a wide variety of Dime Bag products.”
Fans of Ssmokin love that it’s operated by a nice couple that kills it with their customer service. It’s your typical head shop, but it’s got a classy feel to it – the merchandise is high quality and beautifully displayed, and the shop is kept super clean. It almost feels like an art gallery when you go in the place. You could browse the artisan pieces for hours, and they’ve got some of the best prices in town.
If you’re not big into weed, you might still want to check out their fine cigar selection. They’re all easy to see and properly stored, guaranteeing a satisfied purchase for any cigar enthusiast. New to all of this? No worries! The shop owners try out all of their products personally and are more than happy to make some recommendations.
Some things to know before sparking it up in Arizona: Although it neighbors Colorado, Arizona has a totally different attitude about legal weed. In fact, they have some of the strictest cannabis laws in the country. Possession of buds without a medical license in Arizona is actually still considered a felony. Recreational cannabis just missed the cut in November 2016, when just 48.7% of Arizonians voted to legalize adult use.
But good news for medical users! Medical weed was passed by Arizona voters in 2010. Though you can’t purchase medical cannabis with an out-of-state medical license, you are still allowed to possess up to 2.5 ounces every two weeks and grow up to 12 plants.
Keep that in mind if you’re visiting the Prescott area, and be sure to check out Ssmokin and their line of Dime Bags merchandise!
