    Smart Cannabis Storage Isn't Hiding

    Smart Cannabis Storage Isn't Hiding. It's Protection for You, Your Loved Ones, and Your Medicine.

    We consider ourselves lucky to witness the stigma of cannabis slowly burn away, from legalization efforts to social justice and equity campaigns. But one area we feel still lacks support is parenting with cannabis. 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 your cannabis 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 cannabis, 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 Cannabis 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 cannabis 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.

    Cannabis storage should be about protection, not about hiding. By taking your cannabis storage seriously, you’re protecting more than your medicine—you’re protecting your family.

    Smart Cannabis Storage Keeps Your Cannabis 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 cannabis.

    Despite its inclination to grow like a weed, cannabis is 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 cannabis 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 flower’s flavor and effectiveness. Plastic bags also aren’t ideal because of the chemicals that can leach off the plastic and onto your cannabis.

    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 your cannabis’s freshness.

    Each piece of our furniture not only keeps your products out of direct sunlight but also provides space for you to design a bespoke, organized setup of traysboxes, and airtight containers. With your stash organized in airtight, lightproof containers and behind locked, lightproof doors, your flower will stay nearly as fresh as the day you bought it.

    Not to mention, the drawers have self-closing hardware for smooth, silent operation and come with replaceable carbon filters to cut down on the cannabis smell in your home. Show us a shoebox that can do that.  

    Smart Cannabis Storage Means Empowerment

    Protecting your cannabis and your loved ones is empowering. Hiding your cannabis consumption leaves room for assumptions, accidental discoveries, and potentially dangerous situations. By acknowledging your cannabis consumption in a safe, secure way, you earn control over the narrative and reduce the potential for unwanted discoveries or accidental ingestions.

    Keeping things secure also imparts the valuable and important lesson of safely storing intoxicating substances. We designed our sustainably sourced and manufactured furniture pieces to be heirlooms, so that lesson can be passed down from generation to generation. 

    Safely Store More Than Cannabis

    Cannabis is not the only thing in our homes that deserves secure protection. While Forti Goods furniture is designed with cannabis in mind, our pieces can be used to keep other valuables safe too.

    • Jewelry
    • Alcohol
    • Prescriptions
    • Firearms
    • Sex Toys 
    • Electronics
    • Cash
    • Passports
    • 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: Cannabis Grew Up. So Did We.

    Whether you’re looking for a piece specifically to give your THC a little TLC 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 cannabis 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 cannabis 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 cannabis fades, we want to do our part to help make parenting with cannabis, or even just living with cannabis, 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 cannabis.
