A Subscription Box to Help You Get High

June 7, 2018

There's a lot to keep track of when you're getting high, so three enterprising college seniors started Hemper in 2015 to ship stoners whatever they needed ーminus the pot .

"We'll do smoking accessories, Birchbox style," recalled the Hemper's co-founder and CEO Bryan Gerber in an interview recently with Cheddar.

The company raised $1 million in seed funding. The service has 10,000 subscribers and has shipped 200,000 boxes, bringing in about $6 million in revenue ー $2.6 million of that last year. Part of the company's growth can be attributed to Hemper's retail push: Boxes are available in 700 stores, with the goal to be in 3,000 stores by the end of 2019.

Hemper boxes, which cost around $30 a month, change up every month with different products.

"It's a discovery tool for cannabis users," Gerber said.
