New Color Announcement: Unicorn Swirl – Our Unicorn is Ready to Fly!

We are excited to announce that our new Unicorn D'ash Bowl is here! You deserve to chase rainbows and to quickly de-bowl and reload without a mess! Just like our other bowls, the Unicorn can handle burning hot embers and coal, and the spike can be used to clear out stems, de-ash pipes and also holds domes. Just throw it in the dishwasher when it's dirty and it will be as good as new! This is the ultimate stoner essential. Share the magic with someone who sparkles in your world!  

Ash to D’ash [Bowls]

  I woke up to the sound of the alarm blaring loudly at 2 AM, taking a moment to realize where I was. My dog, Amie, was sleeping in my arms after several weeks apart. I had just returned from Cameroon, West Africa. I had served there for 2 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer and I returned to work with Cameroonian seamstresses to produce our first batch of fair trade lingerie. I had just arrived home to Dallas that night. Without putting on any clothes, I quickly jumped up to explore what sounded like crackling.  […]

5 Reasons Why The D’ash Bowl Is The Best Cannabis Friendly Ashtray

When Leafly released the Best of Leafly cannabis products for April 2017, The D’ash Bowl was featured for it’s “convenient ashing without having to get off your couch!” But there’s a lot more to this little ashtray than meets the eye. I’ve been testing and researching The D’ash Bowl since the first sample became available. I have now used that sample product for more than 8 months, including an additional D’ash Bowl to almost every room in my house. I am continuously impressed by features that we hadn’t even intended to be so useful. Here are my top 5 reasons why The D’ash Bowl is the best cannabis friendly ashtray available. 1. Easy to Clean Don’t feel like busting out the alcohol and having a cleaning day? You never have to with The D’ash Bowl! Just [...]

Celebrating 4/20 at 420 Social Club

The 4/20 holiday was a beautiful day in Tucson!  The Smoking Lion couldn't see celebrating any other way than at the 420 Social Club with Dave Wisniewski and the Safer Arizona family! Signatures were collected, bongs were hit, and the community rallied and celebrated together. We donated some D'ash Bowl door prizes that some lucky winners took home and we gave away around 40 homemade brownies. "Happy 420!" we said to every new friend! We enjoyed some fun times and dabbed some deliciousness with Earth's Healing, who won Best Dispensary in the Cannabis Bowl this year! Tumbleweeds Health Center's booth was out front, our favorite certification center and voted Best Certification Center in the Cannabis Bowl! Honky-Tonk and Killers provided live music, and several local comedians took the stage. The stage, by the way, was beautifully decorated with cannabis flags. Minutes before 4:20 one of the [...]

Featured as One of Leafly’s Best Cannabis Products for April 2017

Partnering up with Safer Arizona

As soon as we established ourselves in Arizona, we started looking for partners in the cannabis community. We had moved cross-country with only what we could fit into our Rav4, leaving Texas to launch our business in a more cannabis friendly community. I quickly found the 420 Social Club, and we attended a Safer Arizona meeting to get involved! By the end of the meeting, everyone was crowded around Angel to watch him create the ad for the local 420 party right there on the spot (I’ve told you, he’s a tech wizard!). We took a few signature sheets to start collecting signatures. And if you’re not aware of the issues created by illegal cannabis, I’m going to leave John Oliver’s last week clip right here. He does a terrific job of explaining how it affects everything. It’s well worth [...]

Our D’ash Bowls Are Here!

What an amazing ride it has been. Just six months ago, Angel and I were brainstorming in our tiny office in the upstairs of the tiny mother-in-law suite we lived in. We wanted to be part of the cannabis business community, and we wanted to help others. We had tried ashtrays on the market for herb smoking enthusiasts; Nothing out there was good enough. We kept talking about how to improve the smoking experience. Angel made sketches on napkins, which turned into designs in a program he learned overnight in his enthusiasm to share this product with the world! We had to then test the product! We 3D printed the D’ash Bowl in plastic, which gave us something to hold in our hands and further critique and customize. After lots of research and interviews, I found a manufacturer who we [...]

We Are The Smoking Lion

Have you ever had an “Everything in my life has led me up to this point” moment? When you saw the pieces come together, and realized that you were in fact made to do just what was before you, suddenly making sense of everything you’ve done up to that point? The Smoking Lion is a collaboration, and this is our story! We are a husband and wife (and dog) team in our early 30’s, with lots of experience with running our own businesses. After college, I joined the Peace Corps and volunteered in Cameroon, West Africa for 2 years. I started and directed both a nonprofit organization and a fair trade lingerie business. Angel learned all about computers as a child, much thanks to his dad, and manages his own website design firm. Our worlds collided when we both joined [...]
