Annabis Style | More than Beautiful Things
When I find anyone portraying female stoners in a positive light, I fall in love a little. Or in this case, I fall in love a lot. Last year I stumbled upon the Annabis bags website and immediately asked David to get me in touch with this company, stat. The founder, Jeanine Moss, is a true advocate, and I really admire the brand she is building.
Jeanine Moss grew up in Venice, California, where consuming cannabis was no different than drinking a beer. After moving to New York City in the 1980’s, however, she observed that though many women consumed cannabis on Madison Avenue and in the corporations where she rose as a marketing-communications executive, secrecy was the order of the day. It was there that she observed massively successful women reduced to pulling baggies and tea tins out of their Gucci purses, and acting like guilty teenagers.
If it weren’t for hip for replacement surgery, this behavior might still be true today. When traditional medicine threw Jeanine into a brain-hazed opioid hell, she turned to medical marijuana in order to function and abate the pain. It turned out that many of her friends were doing the same thing. – from www.AnnabisStyle.com ‘
Quite an origin story, am I right? By creating luxury bags and carrying cases for cannabis, Jeanine has both solved a problem for female consumers and has introduced luxury into an industry that is rapidly becoming mainstream.
The Annabis Style website has a lot of great information too. There are several fact sheets available, a blog detailing her entrepreneur journey, and even cannabis travel guides for women!
From their Fact Sheet
• 21 million women in the U.S. are over 18 years of age, have tried cannabis and earn more than $75,000 per year – U.S. Census Bureau, Pew Research Center
• In Colorado and Washington, the key demographic in the legalization movements were 30 to 50 year-old women – Wales-based Global Drug Policy Observatory.
• Women hold 36% of leadership positions in the cannabis industry, significantly higher than the 22% average for U.S. companies in general. – Pew Research Center
A Closer Look at Annabis Stash Bags
Okay, now that I’m done crushing on the company founder, let’s talk about the bags! Jeanine sent me three different styles, but there are even more on the website. All styles come with unique features that make these more than just a handbag.
- Made with odor blocking materials, locking in the scent of your dankest weed
- Airtight zippers
- Vegan products available
- Secret spy girl compartments
- all bags come with a beautiful stash jar, dust cover and authenticity certificate
R I R I | small + sweet
Bad gal RiRi is the style I use the most. Because I already have a few purses that I love, I prefer a small bag so I can just toss it into my purse for the day. RiRi is the perfect size for portable vaporizers, joints, pipes and a small cache of medicine.
Here’s what I can fit in RiRi
M A Y A | my favorite!
Here’s what I can fit in Maya
K I R S T E N | the all-in-one stoner solution

Kate Spade wallet
For years I used makeup bags for my stoner stash, in fact, I still do! I must admit though, it feels good to have something built specifically for cannabis. My Annabis bags have become my go-to solution when I’m out and about. For home, cosmetic bags work just fine. 😉
What do you think? How do you store your stuff? Do you have a great bag that you use for discrete toking? What is your solution for nights out?
