Cannabis isn’t usually prominently on display inside a family home; it’s generally tucked in a secret spot somewhere out of sight and away from hands of children and visiting parents. But Zane Witzel is on a mission to change that.
He created the Cannador, a humidor inspired cannabis storage system that won’t feel out of place next to a jewelry box or watch case, designed to keep the best herb fresh and safe.
“I wanted this to be on your dresser, on your armoire. Someplace you can feel comfortable leaving it out but know that no one can get into it but you. Taking it out of the closet and displaying proudly.”
With a mahogany interior and an exterior of either cherry or walnut (depending on your aesthetic preference), the Cannador feels heavy and solid. It looks exactly like what you’d see in the home of a cigar aficionado. The box is so sturdy that parents of young children will want to make sure it’s out of reach. Because we all know the only way to get hurt by cannabis is when a bunch of it falls on your head.
Witzel chose the mahogany interior specifically because it handles moisture well and won’t impart any oil or flavor to the contents inside. Every product component was considered with the same care and selected with intention for its quality and value.
Hands out, scents in
The Cannador has a simple, old school lock and key system. Whatever you put inside stays there. This means parents don’t have to feel the shame of hiding such a benign substance, but also don’t have to worry about curious fingers grabbing where they don’t belong.
The other major concern for parents storing cannabis – the odor – is mitigated by two layers of wood and a tight seal with a dual fitted lip. According to Witzel, “You could have an ounce sitting in it and it wouldn’t smell.”
Glass “cups” inside feature adjustable vents on the top to allow the flow of moist air from the humidity system to keep things fresh. Connoisseurs looking to optimize their experience can add a Bluetooth sensor and track relative humidity levels from a smartphone app. Some boxes have storage compartments large enough to fit a pipe or vape pen.
Pride in what’s inside
The company’s website clearly states that this is a system for marijuana and was designed with that purpose. They bring a level of honesty not often seen in the weed storage marketplace. For a consumer who puts a fair amount of money into accessories purchased specifically for cannabis, it’s sometimes frustrating to see companies market their lines for vaguely defined “herbs” or offer disclaimers regarding “legal use only.”
The Cannador is a box for people who are serious about securing their cannabis, who want to preserve the terpene profiles for as long as possible, and who don’t mind spending a little extra cash on a quality product. The ability to keep cannabis out in the open, safe and secure but not hidden away, no different from a box of cigars or a cabinet of wine, is a crucial step for normalization.
“You’d put this in your house to genuinely show that you care. That you have an appreciation for the plant, and that you’re willing to demonstrate that in front of friends and family. So people would see that as a regular piece of furniture. It’s not obnoxious. It’s just an extension of your house,” Witzel concludes.
We agree. The beautiful Cannador is the perfect home for connoisseur-grade cannabis and a practical way to destigmatize the plant we love. It also makes a great gift; shop Cannador’s at home storage, travel products, and accessories here.
