Now that cannabis is gaining traction in various marketplaces worldwide, tons of products based on fads and gimmicks are coming out, making it hard to discern the innovations that are actually useful. Blazy Susan fills a niche in the market that cannabis consumers have lacked for ages — a means to properly organize their paraphernalia, with a focus on functional and chic design. You won’t find any Grateful Dead allusions or tacky tie-dye with Blazy Susan. Instead, the brand’s signature aesthetic has a fun and laid-back vibe we’re calling retro-awesome.

Blazy Susan got started in Denver, Colorado, one of the states that pioneered the legalization of recreational marijuana. Founder and CEO Will Breakell got the idea for his products when he had an epiphany after looking at his cluttered coffee table.
While the brand is best known for its pink rolling papers and dab trays, the company also has an entire line of multifunctional tools that can streamline any stoner’s routine. According to a recent interview with Denver publication Westword, the company has worked with celebrities such as Bella Thorne and Jimmy Kimmel. The key to their success? Listening to a loyal fan base (the “Blazy Gang”) and tweaking ideas based on that.
Blazy Susan isn’t just a cosmopolitan cannabis company; they also give back to the community. The brand regularly donates proceeds to breast cancer research and host fundraisers for this and other local causes.
The Blazy Susan vibe is quirky, playful, and a little obscure, which is exactly what we need in 2021. It’s a reminder to lighten up while lighting up — in a more streamlined and organized process, of course.
A dream come true for the messy stoner, one of Blazy Susan’s bestselling products add a sense of cleanliness and calm to what is sometimes a chaotic process. Every weed smoker has experienced the remnants of ground-up weed, stems, and occasional ash stains around the house. Most of us have a bowl or tray for cannabis storage, but products can get jumbled easily and be hard to clean. If only everything had a specific home. Enter the rolling-tray-meets-Lazy-Susan, a one-stop stash box with all sorts of compartments and thoughtful additions.
Blazy Susan wants to turn its line into a stoner household name, and we think the company might pull it off. Other popular products by Blazy Susan’s include their famous pink papers, cones and other smoking accessories, many of which can be customized at the point of purchase. Here are our favorite picks from the Blazy Susan store. Some of the company’s products can also be purchased on Etsy.
