Top 10 Most Unusual CC ProductsAugust 3rd, 2006 by Alex
This week’s Top 10 is devoted to the odd & unusual products out there. Yes, everyone knows about bongs, blunts, papers, grinders, scales and whatever else you see at the local headshop. Today, however, we’re looking at the random, unusual, eccentric and even completely useless products that are floating around the smokosphere (you heard it here first). What started out as basic products for enjoying the simple pleasure of smoking has morphed into one-offs and completely unique products that manufacturers hope will get your attention.
Seriously though, I never have and I doubt I ever will see someone shooting at the local pub with these dart flights. This is an example of creating a product for the wrong age demographic, but still, it’s nice to know they exist.

This metal creation lets you pack bowl after bowl without the annoying process of cleaning it out every couple of hits. It holds 6 bowls and all you do is rotate to enjoy. As always, metal pipes are going to get hot, so I’m not sure how easy this thing will be to hold after ripping through the 5th or 6th bowl. Overall, a simple concept with interesting execution makes this one funky pipe.
The shampoo will last for a long time becaue you only need about a quarter sized amount each time in the shower. These products are designed to replace the fatty acids that you lose each time after showering. I’m not sure what the beer and/or hemp are really doing that is beneficial to your scalp. Most likely this is a catchy marketing technique, but it’s one I can live with.
One thing that is nice, and that should be a feature of more metal pieces, is the high quality build allows the metal to dissipate heat faster and better. No one likes to burn their fingers at the same time their burning herbature, so that’s a strong selling point for this pipe. A pretty useless feature, but it’s one you don’t see all the time, and who knows, it might just come in handy one of these days.
This brings me to the related subject of Hemp Beer. Very common in Europe, and somewhat related to Cannabis Vodka, this beer can contain up to 0.3mg of THC. So, conceivably, if you’re able to drink 45-50 beers in one sitting, you’ll never need to throw down for weed again. I think Bill Brasky is the only person alive manly enough to do something like that. To Biiiillllll Brraaaaaaasky.
This ill piece is made completely out of titanium and has a built in roach. As a bonus, you can use it like a chillum. It’ll run you $43 before shipping and can be bought in Blue, Red, Purple, or Silver.
Loc Butah is made from a mix of butters located in the Amazon. It will moisturize and repair damaged or dried out dreads. Also, it will improve the overall health and look of the dreads too. There are plenty of hemp-related shampoos out there, but this product is truely unique.
Capture all the excitement and all the rewards of the ‘industry’ without the risk of having your own grow op. Players move around the board, renting properties, buying equipment ,growing clones, harvesting & selling their crop… If they’re lucky. Run into bad or good Karma along the way… power cuts, crooked bankers, biker gangs & pissed neighbors… or get busted by the cops. If they arrive on your doorstep and you’re ‘Lit up,’ you’re finished… Lose your plants, equipment & property and end up in the slammer. Run out of money? Sell shares in a property to a player or borrow money from the ‘Organization’ at nasty rates. Finally, one player with all the luck and all the money wins!
It might be a little gimmicky, but it sure is unique. Now imagine if Hasbro had come up with this idea before Monopoly…
Doug, Arj, and Tony hit on almost every conceivable topic there is. Doug Benson talks about getting his jacket back from the dry cleaners after leaving pot in the pocket. Arj Barker remembers spending 30 minutes high as a kite cleaning his hotel kitchen … with parmesan cheese. Tony Camin says his girlfriend needs to shut up about his weed smoking and go back to feeding the baby. Ah, Tony is quite the comedian, we all know he doesn’t have a girlfriend…
Overall, the live performance and the accompanying 30 track CD are about as awesome as it gets. There are still some tour dates left in middle America, so see if you can get to one of the last shows.
