September Welcome

Happy September everyone! As we head into Fall, HQ has some big news…are you ready for the holiday season? If you haven’t started stocking up for the holiday rush, it’s time to get on it. According to a survey of Black Friday shoppers, holiday shopping begins not after Thanksgiving, but in October with more than half of those eager consumers beginning their gift buying right after they put their Halloween decorations away. Get a sneak peek at what’s Hot with holiday shoppers in this month’s special feature…plus, we have tons of prizes involved. Don’t miss it!

Up next, Decades Psychedelic, was born in South Buffalo. But this ain’t your normal shop, nor is it run by your typical shop owner. Meet Ryan, owner of Decades Psychedelic for 25 years, who is also a licensed and certified firefighter and paramedic. Don’t miss this incredible story about how Ryan and his team share a passion and mission to help the less fortunate!

Lastly, the cannabis and smoke shop industry is saturated with products and packaging reflecting the latest pop culture icons and cartoon characters, but artist Sean Dietrich is bringing a dose of originality to the table — or the canvas, to be more precise. Take a peek behind the curtain as HQ goes behind the scenes with one of the most talented artists in our industry.
