Did you know that there's a subscription box for pickles? It's literally nothing but pickles every month. Pickled herring, pickled beets, pickled tomatoes. You name it, they've pickled it. There's one for snow too. Literally, it's snow, packed in special containers to keep it from becoming just plain water, shipped anywhere in the world. Not sure what one would do with that--perhaps build the world's most out-of-place snowman in Miami Beach or turn a stairwell into a bomb-ass sledding run. Actually, that sounds like fun. So it shouldn't be a surprise that Nugg Club's weed subscription boxes (yes, with actual weed in them) are a thing now too!
There isn't really a set-in-stone definition for a 'marijuana subscription box' just yet. They're kind of a new thing. The term is used loosely by companies selling boxes of accessories and snacks, CBD products, even pet supplements in addition to the good stuff ;)
Each is billing itself as a marijuana subscription box for now. Therefore, we've decided to give you the low-down on these different types of boxes and categorize each kind to help edify and elevate your cannabis shopping experience--and also so you don't get a box of dog treats when you're really just looking for a good nugg.
So far, we've identified the following types of weed subscription boxes:
Weed subscription boxes (with actual weed)
Accessory boxes (with bongs and other fancy smoking implements)
Essentials boxes (just what's necessary to light it up)
CBD boxes (snacks, topicals and other CBD-only items)
So without further ado, why don't we take a closer look at some of the best options that are out in today's weed market.
Curated Marijuana & THC Boxes
(a.k.a. The Good Stuff)
First and foremost, let's take a look at some actual weed subscription boxes. These subscriptions deliver regular shipments of marijuana or THC products to their customers. Generally speaking, these boxes may require customers to be medical marijuana patients in their home states or over 21 in recreational states--and some, like the Nugg Club Box, serve both medical and recreational patients.
The Nugg Club Box
Many of the marijuana subscription boxes you'll find on the market today include things like smoking accessories or even CBD products. There are few, however, that deliver actual weed, concentrates, and other THC products themselves. That's not to say that these other weed boxes aren't excellent buys. But, some patients and recreational smokers, possibly even yourself, may want an actual weed box as a monthly subscription. And that's Nugg Club. Consider us the king of the category because, you know, that's what we are.
The products in Nugg Club's boxes aren't just schwag, leftovers or tiny little sample sizes. They're the same full-sized, top-shelf items that you pay a premium for at the dispensary--just without the high-price. And it's delivered right to your front door on a silver platter. Ok, well, not exactly on a silver platter, but they do take special delivery requests.
Price: $99 per month. Additional add-on options are available for 40%-60% of their retail value.

These subscriptions have been around much longer than actual weed subscriptions, and contain a mix of items like bongs, bowls, rolling papers, rolling trays, t-shirts, stickers, and more.

CBD subscription boxes are a lot like the curated marijuana boxes listed at the top of the article. Yet, as the name suggests, they only include CBD products such as oils, tinctures, capsules, concentrates, and more. They have the advantage of freedom to ship anywhere, now that CBD is legal, but can easily be mixed up with THC containing subscription boxes.

Not only that, but all the products are derived from legal, lab-tested hemp plants.
