Everything you need to know about the Nugg Club subscription service
Cannabis subscription services have taken the market by storm in recent years. Most have one major caveat, however: they actually don’t contain anything that would get you up. Most boxes are full of roll paper, plastic sanders, and branded tapes that will most likely end up in a landfill. They’re literally cheap and have a carbon footprint that is way beyond their worth.
Nugg Club, a popular cannabis subscription service exclusively available in LA, is different. With its approachable branding and trendy selection of THC products, Nugg Club has succeeded in building a box that is actually worth paying for. This allows new users to learn about various cannabis products at a fraction of the cost.
How it works
The ordering process for the Nugg Club begins with creating an account on their website and doing a quick survey about your cannabis preferences. Customers choose from a combination of flowers, pre-rolls, vapes and edibles (choice two), which genre they will receive, whether they prefer sativa, indica or hybrid (choice two) and how often they would like to receive the box (monthly or bimonthly) ).
Each box is priced at $ 99 plus California cannabis tax and sales tax, and contains 5 to 6 products valued at over $ 225. The range of brands and products that Nugg Club selects for these boxes is where the service really shines. The products are new, hot, and cutting edge, and the brands are the best and most trusted on the market. Many of the brands they work with include fair or charitable initiatives, including the Nugg Club itself.
After completing their order and choosing a delivery window, customers wait 7 to 10 days for the box to be delivered by hand. I found the part of the delivery exchange really impressive, my courier was very communicative which made coordinating the drop-off an easy and enjoyable experience.
What’s in the box?
For my box, I chose a combination of flowers and pre-rolls, with sativa and hybrid varieties being preferred. Here are some mini-reviews of the products I received:
superFIRE Hybrid 1/8: Fruity, frosty and sweet, this hybrid eighth note has an intoxicating and uplifting high, ideal for daytime activities.
Mimosa Sativa 1/8: Schedule 1 is the Nugg Club’s new private label that donates a portion of the profit to support the disposal of cannabis under the Controlled Substances Act. The proceeds from Appendix 1 will be donated to lobbying efforts to reclassify cannabis and to the Last Prisoner Project, an organization committed to the rescue of people in prison on non-violent cannabis charges.
The 1/8 mimosa is gorgeous, with purple colored nugs and a berry-citrus-terpene profile. The high is exciting, whimsical, and perfect for waking up and baking.
Power Puffs Pre-Roll Pack: Her Highness is a female owned brand that consistently sets the industry apart with a chic aesthetic and girl power vibe. This small pre-roll pack of kief infusion contains a 24-carat gold lighter and enough THC to make a real punch.
King Fuzzies Super Silver Haze Infused Pre-Roll: Bright, powerful, fun – I loved this infused joint. It’s an incredible and uplifting experience from one of the best pre-roll brands out there.
Super glue Sativa Hybrid 1/8: The least spectacular flower, this type of flower will take you higher than it looks.
Glass pipe: Meh, could be cuter.
Nugg Club add-ons
Upon receiving your first box, members get access to one of the coolest features of this service: the Nugg Club add-ons. There is a section on the website where users can choose from extremely discounted ancillary products that revolve around wholesale prices. These add-ons are billed separately from your box payment at the time of addition and have the potential to save thousands on your annual pharmacy budget.
What’s the attraction?
The Nugg Club is a great option for new users who want to explore the cannabis market and find their favorite products. Pharmacies can be overpriced and customers don’t have a good, affordable way to try several different brands and products to see what works for them.
The main disadvantage I find with this service is the delivery time. After you’ve paid and completed your order, the box will take another 7-10 days to deliver. As a stoner who needs some level of instant gratification, especially when it comes to getting weeds that I’ve already paid for, this is too long. However, the Nugg Club is not exactly suitable for super stoners like me who have to smoke weed all day every day.
Bottom line: Nugg Club is great, especially for new users. For stoners who already know the market, it’s great if you want to save some cash on your weed and don’t mind waiting about a week for it to arrive.
