head & nature has been one of the largest Online Head and Grow Shops in Germany for 20 years. Founded in 1997 in Kassel, the mail order business soon really got going at the Bavarian location in Regensburg. Since then, we have always focused on innovation and quality in our business processes – modern storage methods, flexible goods management systems, fast international shipping – we got it all covered.

Our product range now includes pipes, vaporizers, grinders, papers, blunts, zip bags, digital scales and all kinds of accessories. Our shelves probably hold the largest selection of bongs and related water pipes ever seen by a human eye. Grow boxes are also available: Homebox is currently one of the most popular items in our growshop. In addition we also have grow lighting, activated carbon filters, fans, pollinators, fertilizers and nutrients – and everything else for indoor and outdoor cultivation as well. Add a pinch of shisha and lifestyle, the headshop is ready!

What is a head shop anyway?

Probably the first headshop in today’s sense was located in San Francisco, in the artists’ quarter Haight-Ashbury. Its name was “Psychedelic Shop” and it sold all kinds of accessories the hippie culture needed for everyday use: glass pipes, rolling papers, psychedelic music, incense sticks, coloured cloths, paraphernalia of all kinds. A few months later, the “Head Shop” opened in New York, which gave this new facility its current name.
But where does this name come from? Some derive it from the deadheads, the cult started by Grateful Dead fans, others refer to the terms “pot head” and “acid head” for users of mind-expanding substances.
Even today, head shops – partly out of nostalgia and partly as a statement – still sell incense, batik cloths and Bob Marley shirts, but they are often rather smoke shops, i. e. shops for special smoking accessories such as water pipes or vaporizers. Sometimes they can be found as combined retailers with record stores, cafés or e-cigarette-liquid stores, but often they are also – especially in the headshop capital Amsterdam – clearly defined stoner shops, whose accessories and equipment are geared to this lifestyle.

Smoking culture is a societal phenomenon, and serious smokers nowadays are hard to distinguish from occasional or party smokers, especially when it comes to clichés of hippies, communards and rastafari. A modern smoke shop takes all this into account and offers not only the classic Ganja and Bob Marley articles with a high recognition value, but mainly serious and sleekly designed smoking accessories for adults.
Vaporizers in particular are an expression of this development. With their high efficiency and medically proven effectiveness, they have become the means of choice for herbal evaporation for many people who have outgrown the home-rolled blunt.

In addition, the Smartshop, which is rather rare in most European countries, is also a related phenomenon. It offers various plant preparations, dietary supplements, teas and infusions, oils and scented sachets, all of which promise an active effect on human consciousness, but whose ingredients are not subject to the prohibition of the narcotics law, as is the case with THC, the most important active component of cannabis or marijuana plants.

Despite its specialisation in the smoke sector, a modern headshop cannot do without accessories for plant breeding. Of course, this is not just about growing tobacco, which tends to be a niche activity. Making smoke blends from home-grown herbs is the logical consequence of a serious study of active ingredients and modes of action – urban and indoor gardening, which many consider to be a short-lived trend, proves it.

All you need for smoking, from ashtrays to zip bags! The smoking hot deals in our Headshop leave no desires unfulfilled.

A $950 Bong? A $1,475 Weed Grinder? You Can Find Them at Barneys

The luxury retailer jumps on the cannabis train with a fancy head shop in Beverly Hills.

Maybe you’ve heard about MedMen, the design-forward marijuana dispensary chain that Page Six described as “the Barneys of weed.” And then there’s the Plug, a premium dispensary in downtown Los Angeles that LA Weekly called “the Barneys of weed.”

Well, there’s a new Barneys of weed, and this one has a familiar name: Barneys .

In a move to court chillaxed influencers (and their Instagram feeds), the luxury department store chain is taking an unlikely, or perhaps inevitable, detour into cannabis, with its own head shop called the High End.

This store-within-a-store is scheduled to open at the Barneys store in Beverly Hills in March, with other locations in California to follow. The company may also open the head shop in other states, including New York if recreational cannabis becomes legal there.

The High End will offer all manner of luxe smoker’s paraphernalia: Devambez rolling papers made from organically grown French hemp; handblown water pipes by Siemon and Salazar, a glassware studio in California; stash boxes by the jewelry designer Martine Ali; and joint holders (otherwise known as roach clips) by Good Art Hlywd. Prices will tend toward the premium. A sterling silver pot grinder, for example, will sell for $1,475.

Cannabis products will also be available. Beboe, a cannabis purveyor whose artful packaging and celebrity clientele have led some to call it the “Hermes of marijuana,” is a partner in the venture, and will sell an exclusive silver version of its rose gold vape pens, along with its low-dosage pastilles.

Traditionalists who prefer to smoke marijuana can choose pre-rolled marijuana buds from a Beboe collaboration with Sherbinskis, a fashionable cannabis brand from California founded by Mario Sherbinski, an influential Bay Area cultivator with a strong hip-hop following. (Because the High End will not have a dispensary license, Beboe representatives will take customers’ orders for delivery.)

Not long ago, it would have seemed unthinkable for a venerable department store to enter the drug business. But Daniella Vitale, the chief executive and president of Barneys, said the time seemed ripe, not only because of changing attitudes about marijuana, but because of the pressures on bricks-and-mortar retailers to offer Instagram-friendly moments.

“If someone is going to come into a physical store, they really expect more than product, because product, unfortunately, is available in a million different places,” Ms. Vitale said. “We want to make sure there is an entertainment value here.”

“Social media happens in an environment, it happens in a restaurant, in a fitting room,” Ms. Vitale added. “It’s not happening by watching someone at their desktop shopping online. We need to make sure we’re creating a backdrop for that.”

As such, the look of the store will be more Malibu home than gritty Venice Beach dispensary, with plenty of glass, patinated brass and raw marble. “It’s a very Paul Rudolph vibe,” said Matthew Mazzucca, the creative director of Barneys, referring to the midcentury architect.

“It’s made for people like me: high-functioning adults who maybe use cannabis once or twice a week,” said Scott Campbell, the celebrity tattoo artist, who is one of the founders of Beboe. “I’ve got kids to raise, careers to maintain, and when I do have time to enjoy weed, I don’t care how much it costs. I just want the best possible experience.”
