Cookies SF storage jars available now!

Cookies_SF_Blog_Post
 

Cookies SF is a clothing and smoking accessory brand started by Bay Area rappper and entrepreneur Berner in 2011. Berner wanted to create something unique that would help bridge the gap between street wear, urban lifestyle, marijuana, hip-hop music and a multi-cultural society and subsequently Cookies SF was born. The first products to come from the fledgling California brand were t-shirts and other clothes that were screen-printed in Berner’s garage. Word spread and the brand soon developed a strong following. Next came the Cookies SF range of smoking accessories, the flagship product being the Cookies Jar. These jars were obviously created by a serious smoker as a lot of thought has gone into the product design and features. We became aware of these jars a while ago through Cypress Hill & B-Real and attempted to import some from the states. This proved impossible due to shipping costs and import tariffs so we are really happy to be able to get them in stock at last!

Cookies_SF_Jars_Large_3_part_Jar

At Natural Selection we strive to find the very best new and exciting smoking and lifestyle products and we pride ourselves on personally testing as many of our products as possible. The Cookies SF storage jars are one of the ranges that we were genuinely excited about stocking and they didn’t disappoint. The design is second to none and in addition they’re reasonably priced! A win-win if ever there was one!
The original large Cookies Jar is made from transparent plastic with three stackable sections. The top compartment has a carry handle and the three sections screw together so you can customise your stack and take as many as you want out and about with you. Each compartment comes with a removable divider which separates the section into two parts so you can carry two separate herbs without mixing them up. The quality of the construction and level of thought put into the design is obvious every time you use this great new product! A jar for the true connoisseur.

Cookies_SF_Jars_Small_3_part_Jar


The next product in the Cookies range is the small jar. This one comes in black and has three small, stackable compartments.  Again this means you can customise your stack to be as small or large as you need for any occasion. The lid of the top section has a small hole that allows you to clip the stack to your bag or for creating a handle. Each section in the small Cookies jar comes with a removable non-stick silicone insert designed for storing waxes, oils and concentrates. As with the other Cookies jars these are smell proof and air tight and will keep your precious herbs nice and fresh! 

 

 Cookies_SF_Jars_Tall_2_part_Jar

Showing their commitment to designing innovative products that you actually enjoy using Cookies released the tall storage jar. This comes in black and features one small top section with a silicone insert plus a tall bottom section (no insert) that is large enough for your other smoking apparatus such as king size papers and tips. The tall jar is again fully customisable and can be interchanged with the sections from the small jar.

Cookies_SF_Silicone

The latest addition to the Cookies range that we stock at Natural Selection is this handy platinum-cured non stick silicone storage jar. It is especially designed for your precious waxes, oils and sticky concentrates. Get one FREE with every oil rig & bong bought from us! The video below is not ours but shows how the large Cookies jar can be used if you're lucky enough to be in a country with relaxed cannabis laws.

Roor Phuncky Feel Tips - customs back in stock!

Roor_Custom_Tips_Blog_Preview_Image

It is no secret that we absolutely love the RooR Phuncky Feel Tips at Natural Selection. Since we got them in stock they have been one of our favourite products among customers and staff alike, selling out almost every week for the last few months. The Phuncky Feel Tips are glass roaches (or tips) hand blown by the German glass bong masters, Roor. They are the result of an ongoing collaboration between Roor and hip-hop legends Cypress Hill. According to B-Real (aka Dr. Greenthumb) they were “created to provide avid smokers with a new, refined method and product to better your smoking experience” and who are we to argue with the big man??!!! He has a point as well; we were amazed at how much difference to the overall smoking experience these things make! For the ultimate in taste and smoothness from your roll these have become an essential.

B-Real_Cypress_Hill_Phuncky_Feel_Tips_Natural_Selection

ROOR are renowned for their glass bongs and skills when blowing high quality smoking products for the connoisseur. The Phuncky Feel Tips are hand-blown from the same high quality, heat-resistant and super tough glass that they use in their bongs. The first Phuncky Feel Tips to be released were transparent glass roaches with the Roor logo in rasta colours. They come in sets of three with one round mouth piece and two flattened mouth pieces for a bit of variety. The Phuncky Feel Tips have two notches half-way down to stop any small pieces of material entering your mouth when smoking.
When these were first released, to be honest we weren’t fully convinced so we took a few of them home to test out. Within an hour I was exchanging texts with the rest of the Natural Selection crew about just how good these were! We were all instantly hooked and word got around meaning we sold out of them the very next day.  Since then we have become almost evangelical about spreading the word of the Phuncky Feel tips, it’s no marketing bullshit when B-Real and Roor hook up, they do it proper. We have enjoyed Phuncky Feels on a daily basis since then and it is no exaggeration to claim that they are one of our favourite, most popular and well received products that we have ever stocked. 


Roor_Phuncky_feel_tips_three_set

After how much we loved the original Phuncky Feels we were very excited to learn that Roor and Cypress Hill  were going to collaborate again on a new creation. When the newest addition to the Phuncky Feel range - the custom tips which are hand-blown coloured glass roaches -  arrived we were not dissapointed. They look as beautiful as you would expect from ROOR and are an absolute delight to smoke with. As they are each individually hand blown the colours and sizes do vary slightly, although they tend to be a bit smaller than the standard Phuncky Feel Tips. We have fallen in love with these at Natural Selection and by the way they have been selling you have too! If you’ve not experienced the pure pleasure of smoking with a Roor Cypress Hill Phuncky Feel Tips then you really are missing out, check them out online or in store today.

Roor_Custom_Phuncky_Feel_Tips_Natural_Selection

Caring for your Phuncky Feel Tips is easy and they are very tough so should last you a long time. We find that if you rinse them with warm water after each use that keeps them pretty clean. If that’s too much effort as the evening progresses then a pipe cleaner and warm water will do the trick after a few uses. Alternatively you can use bong cleaners, we prefer the types that don’t use alcohol and are biodegradable such as the Black Leaf Bio-Cleaner or the Dr. Green Bong cleaner. The best technique we’ve found for cleaning the tips this way is to put them in a small glass, add some boiling water and a small amount of cleaner. Leave it for 5-10 minutes and then thoroughly rinse them with warm water, careful not to burn yourself! Even if you've neglected them for some time, using this method followed by cleaning through with a pipe cleaner will scrub up the grubbiest of tips to a brand sparkley new finish.

Roor_Custom_Rasta_colour_Phuncky_feel_tip

It is no surprise that when two giants of the cannabis and smoking world like Roor and Cypress Hill put their minds together they produce something extraordinary. They are both innovators in their own fields and we thought we would pay tribute to Cypress Hill by putting together a list of some of our favourite tracks from their long back catalogue.
Cypress Hill have always been one of those rare groups who at their height almost everyone seemed to listen to regardless of what music they were into. The self-titled debut is instantly recognisable with a style all of its own, what better place to start than with the track that lends its name to the glass tips, The Phuncky Feel One.

 



This list could really just be the album Black Sunday in full,we love every track on there and remember it providing the sound track for many a smokeout back in the day!
We struggled to decide what tracks from this album to include so we've gone with "When the shit goes down" for it's funky beat and the classic "Insane in the Brain" - we had to inlcude that one!






This one isn't a Cypress Hill track but it does (briefly) feature B-Real. Any excuse to stick a Dilated Peoples track on had to be taken!



Cypress Hill and B-Real have always had a close affinity to metal music and with their album "Skull & Bones" they split the record into two, the first side being a hip-hop record with the second being a much more rock driven, rap-metal style. They are also one of the few groups to ever make "rap-metal" sound good!



Last but not least is Cypress Hill's ode to the herb featuring B-Real's alter ego Dr. Greenthumb!

Sesh - handmade skateboard ashtrays

Sesh_skateboard_ashtray_blog

We love SESH!

We like nothing better than sourcing the best quality smoking products from all over the world so we were over the moon when we found these beauties from SESH, made practically around the corner from us. From humble beginnings in a small kitchen in Huddersfield somewhere around 2012 this company has gone from strength to strength, now offering a wide range of products including these great ashtrays.
 

Like all their products these are made from recycled skateboards which, once ridden to skateboard heaven by their owners are salvaged by the people over at SESH who rescue the wood to hand carve jewellery, accessories, and now ashtrays. Bringing together our love of skateboarding and our love of stylish, high quality smoking accessories as well as being handmade right here in Yorkshire, this is by far our favourite product we’ve taken home recently. So much so, it gets carried around from room to room.

Sesh_skateboard_ashtray_Natural_Selection

Here is boss man pretending he can skate with a slappy noseslide 9000ft up a mountain in India!
 

If you’ve ever skated or known anyone else who has, you’ll know how attached people get to their decks. It can be the most loved and the most hated possession, often flitting between the two at each attempt of a new trick. For every skater, their deck has been with them throughout their victories and by their side (or thrown in a corner) through their defeats. It embodies freedom, pleasure, pain and torment. It contains a little bit of their heart and their soul whilst they use it to throw everything they’ve got at that gap, that ramp, that kerb, that flat bank. As with many things, it gets to the point where it’s been used and abused until it simply can’t give any more and a shiny new (or at least usable) replacement is required.

Sesh_skateboard_ashtrays

And so shaped by its former owner, whether by traipsing with them around the world or being hidden, unloved, collecting dust in a corner until it gets rescued by the folks at SESH, it then gets shaped into something shiny and new once more, each piece unique, with its own story… smooth grooves and a deep enough well to last out the night. We love SESH and so will you.

TH_Seeds_available_now_Natural_Selection
 

We now stock a great selection of seeds from T.H Seeds, one of the oldest and most reputable seed banks in the world. T.H Seeds were one of the first seed banks to bring genetics from the states to Europe and are responsible for some landmark strains. They were formed in 1993 and continue to produce amazing new genetics to this day. We are a big fan of T.H Seeds at Natural Selection and we are running a great special offer, get 2 free feminised Bubble Gum seeds with every pack. You'll also receive the usual free feminised Lemon Kush seeds and free delivery that you get with every seed order from us.

TH_Seeds_free_Bubble_Gum_seeds_Natural_Selection
 

In addition to T.H Seeds we have another new selection of seeds in stock from Humboldt Seed Organisation. As the name suggests these guys hail from the well known breeding hot spot of Humboldt, California. They specalise in US genetics and even have a collaboration strain with B-Real of Cypress Hill fame. Their seeds are beautifully packaged in a wooden box that has the strain information laser cut into the wood. The collection of strains available from us represents some of the best US genetics of recent times with some great kush and diesel strains as well as the legendary Blue Dream.

Humboldt_Seeds_available_now_Natural_Selection

The third seed bank we have added this week is DInafem seeds. These guys are based in Spain and have many years of breeding experience.

Daily Smoking Essentials

Daily_Smoking_Essentials_Blog_Preview

With over a decade of experience in the “hed” and smoking shop world plus many more years of toking we have comes across some products that have blown us away and just never seem to be improved upon. We have decided to put together a list of the best and most essential smoking tools, accessories, grinders, and bongs that we have personally used, tested and enjoyed for years. These are the things that we couldn’t do without, the smoking essentials that we use every day at Natural Selection.

Space_Case_Grinder .

Space Grinders are the best in the world. They are made from high grade titanium and are machined to the highest specifications. We have used and treasured our titanium crystal catcher for over 7 years now and it still performs better than most other grinders will brand new. We love our Space Case and couldn’t do without it. They are great to use, grinding herbs efficiently with their sharp, long-lasting teeth. They are made in the USA and you can tell that every single grinder is produced with love and care that you will notice with every use.

Wolf_Production_Rolling_Boxes

Next on our list of smoking essentials is the Wolf Box Deluxe T4. This is a lovingly crafted rolling box, made in Germany with high quality wood and great attention to detail. There are so many wonderful features that make this box an absolute essential. We have used ours daily for over 9 years and it is still going strong! One feature that we love about this rolling box is the two-part removable herb sifter meaning you can collect even more of those precious crystals. The general build quality of the Deluxe Wolf Boxes is amazing and they’ve really thought about what a daily smoker needs. The large removable section at the back perfectly fits the large titanium space case and is big enough for nearly all crystal catching grinders. There are extra compartments for papers, tips, and all your other smoking essentials and it is also lockable. 

Roor_Phuncky_feel_tips

The Phuncky Feel Tips are a collaboration between German Glass Bong masters Roor and hip-hop legends Cypress Hill. We can’t stress enough how much we love these at Natural Selection. At first we saw them as a bit of a superfluous “bling” or a gimmick but God we were wrong! The Phuncky Feel Tips really do provide an unrivalled smoking experience. The difference between rolling with a normal card roach and one of these glass ones is instantly noticeable in the taste, smoothness and overall quality of the smoke.

Roor_Blue_500

It is no secret that Roor are one of the most respected glass blowers in the world and produce what are consistently rated as the best bongs ever made. For a daily bong the Roor 500 has been our choice for years now. Its simple design belies the attention to detail and thought gone into the design and construction of this bong. It is a joy to smoke through, looks the business and is also easy to clean and maintain.

420_Jars

An absolute necessity for the daily smoker is a good storage solution for your favourite herbs. As you know at Natural Selection we are a fan of quality glass products and this extends to the storage jars we use every day. 420 Science Jars are our usual stash jar of choice and they are great for curing and storing your herbs. They are air tight, made from tough glass in the USA and come with various cool designs. Keep your precious herbs fresh with a glass jar from 420 Science.

Smoking_Essentials

We use all the products above on a daily basis and can personally vouch for their quality. Not only are these products our favourites that we use all the time but we haven’t found any that have improved upon them. We use them for a reason; they’re the best!
