Meet AnnaBis, the World’s First Line of Purses Designed Just for Stoners
Over the past few years, America’s view of cannabis has drastically changed. Nearly half of the nation has legalized marijuana for medicinal use and a new wave of states are pushing to legalize recreational marijuana too. With the new freedom to use pot, stoners are looking for ways to make the lifestyle even easier. Now women who enjoy marijuana have a brand new option thanks to a company called AnnaBis.
Founders Ann Shuch and Jeanine Moss admittedly enjoy cannabis, but they noticed that it didn’t come without its problems. One night while they were out with friends, they both got frustrated fishing through their purses to find their stash and a lighter. “We didn’t have anything fashionable and functional to carry our cannabis. That’s when the light went off,” Moss said. That’s how AnnaBis was born.
The new line of purses was created specifically to hold your stash so it’s easy to access anytime you need it. AnnaBis purses come in three styles: a clutch, a pencil shaped case, and a cross-body bag. All three styles are made from leather and feature odor-block technology. A special resin lines the fabric and the zipper promises an airtight seal. That means no one will smell your stash or have any idea what secret is hiding in your handbag.
Ultimately, AnnaBis hopes reduce the stigma attached to women who use marijuana. “The cannabis industry didn’t recognize women as consumers until very recently. Previously, women were depicted in pictures as scantily clad with marijuana leaf pasties. It was not a female-friendly environment,” Moss said. “We believe women will be the most powerful and important force in the legalization and medical use of marijuana, and their wants and needs should not be overlooked.”
The new handbags are another step forward in the fight for marijuana freedom. Do you know a stylish stoner that would fall in love with these purses?
