Smart Storage Isn't Hiding. It's Protection for You, Your Loved Ones, and Your Medicine.
We consider ourselves lucky to witness the stigma of plant medicine slowly burn away, from legalization efforts to social justice and equity campaigns. But one area we feel still lacks support is parenting with it. While consuming alcohol has been acceptable for parents for generations back, consuming cannabis still hides in the smoky shadows, even though it can be both an effective outlet and medicine for many parents.
We want to change that outlook. Yes, it’s important to keep it safe and away from curious hands, but that doesn’t have to mean keeping secrets. After all, how safe is that “secret” shoebox at the top of your closet? Though it may be hiding your edibles, it’s not protecting it or the loved ones you’re trying to keep out. It’s not hard for someone to get into a shoebox once it’s discovered.
That’s why we think it’s time to stop thinking about cannabis storage as hiding and start thinking about it as safe, secure protection for you, your loved ones, and your cannabis.
Smart Storage Is Protection
When it comes to protecting your loved ones—whether that means your children, your guests, or your pets—you need to be smart. Using a storage box with a lock and key is a start, but keys are easily lost. (And easily found by the wrong person, especially curious children.) That’s why we made a point to create safe storage that’s also smart.
With protection in mind, we outfitted each piece of our furniture with a smart lock mechanism that can only be opened with the Forti Goods app. The lock has a powerful latch to keep prying hands out, but you can simply open the app and tap a button to unlock. Plus, while each piece already comes with a smart lock for the main compartment, you can customize yours and add extra smart locks to the remaining drawers or doors for added protection.
Storage should be about protection, not about hiding. By taking storage of plant medicine seriously, you’re protecting more than your medicine—you’re protecting your family.
Smart Storage Keeps It Safe and Fresh
Another downside to that shoebox at the top of your closet is that it doesn’t do anything to help preserve your ouid.
Despite its inclination to grow like a weed, it's a little moodier when it comes to proper storage. Environmental factors like sunlight and humidity can impact how long it stays fresh, as can the physical storage container itself. Keeping your flower in a plastic bag, for example, can do damage because the bag can have a static charge that pulls trichomes off the flower, in turn diminishing the its flavor and effectiveness. Plastic bags also aren’t ideal because of the chemicals that can leach off the plastic.
Instead, research shows it’s best to store your cannabis in a cool, dark place with minimal humidity, preferably in an airtight container. At Forti Goods, we took these storage necessities to heart and designed pieces built to prolong freshness.
Not to mention, the drawers have self-closing hardware for smooth, silent operation and come with replaceable carbon filters to cut down on the smell in your home. Show us a shoebox that can do that.
Smart Storage Means Empowerment
Protecting your stash and your loved ones is empowering. Hiding your consumption leaves room for assumptions, accidental discoveries, and potentially dangerous situations. By acknowledging your consumption in a safe, secure way, you earn control over the narrative and reduce the potential for unwanted discoveries or accidental ingestions.
Safely Store More Than Cannabis
Plant medicine is not the only thing in our homes that deserves secure protection. While Forti Goods furniture is designed with it in mind, our pieces can be used to keep other valuables safe too.
Protect These Other Items in Your Home
- Personal pleasure devices
- Sensitive documents
- Sentimental items
Since you decide who can or can’t get into your smart-locked table or cabinet, your furniture is much more than a beautiful statement piece—it’s nearly a full-on safe. And not everyone knows it.
Summary: Secure Storage Is Smart
Whether you’re looking for a piece specifically to secure plant medicine or you want something that can protect your jewelry and documents too, Forti Goods has exactly what you and your loved ones need to feel safe, secure, and protected.
Our smart storage furniture offers you protection with a smart lock mechanism on every piece. The lock’s strong latch keeps out unwanted visitors, but it can easily be unlocked with the Forti Goods app. Plus, while each piece of furniture already comes with a smart lock for the main compartment, you can customize yours and add extra smart locks to the remaining drawers or doors for added security.
And with that security comes empowerment. You gain control over your narrative and reduce the potential for unwanted discoveries or accidental ingestions. You also impart the important lesson of safely storing intoxicating substances, something you can pass down from generation to generation through our heirloom pieces.As the stigma around plant medicine fades, we want to do our part to help make parenting or even just living with it, as normal as any other medicine. We’re here to say that it’s time to stop thinking about cannabis storage as hiding and start thinking about it as safe, secure protection for you, your loved ones, and your medicine.
