But as a consumer/re-seller located in Canada, is it really worth buying on the Supreme website to flip in Canada? I did a quick breakdown for you in the below chart. I’ll use the Supreme TNF Tent that just released this week as an example. The ticket price on the Supreme website was $328 and for most people that were able to cop on the site paid about $348 shipped (could even be slightly more due to larger item). This tent already has a few sold listing on eBay for as low as $449 USD.
Assuming as a buyer you cover for shipping of $20, you could get the tent for about $469 USD . On the flip side , had I purchased the tent on the Supreme site, I would be paying for tax and duty of close to $100 , which means my total cost would end up being approximately $446 USD . As you can see, the difference in cost is minuscule, but the amount of work put into trying to cop on Supreme is MUCH MORE! Think about it, you’re sitting at your desktop at 10:59 AM stressed to cop at 11 AM and hoping you can secure 1 item. For some, you might have to pay for a bot to secure the item, which means your actual cost of securing the item on the Supreme website probably ends up being more than you buying on eBay afterwards. Most of the time, we have a lot of kids/sellers looking to just make a few bucks and for many even a $50-$100 margin is a good margin. As I mentioned before, there will always be someone out there willing to make 1 less dollar than you to make a living. As a reseller or buyer, you want to buy from these people because they’re not looking to rape you in price, they just want to make a meal or 2. Why I love to buy from eBay is the fact a lot of times, you can negotiate on the price.
As we all know the general rule of thumb…sellers are willing to do PayPal invoice to save that hefty 10% fee eBay charges it’s sellers. However, the most important reason why I buy on eBay is I can specify to sellers to lower the price on the declared value on the shipment. Often times to avoid custom fees (btw, its technically not right/legal to do it, but 99% of the time it works) I ask the seller to declare at $50 and ship with tracking. So what is essentially happening in this transaction? So instead of paying the government the $100, you are transferring that tax to another individual. To me, I rather support a hustler on eBay then give my money to the government. Moreover, most of us have a full time 9-5 job and often times we DON’T have time to sit at our computer at 11 AM to click on the supreme website. Shopping of eBay gives me the flexibility to shop whenever I have time and also the ability to bargain for the best possible price. What does this mean for re-selling in Supreme in Canada? It means consumers of Supreme merchandise in Canada is literally paying 20-30% more than what everyone in the US is paying. Imagine re-sellers are also trying to make their 10-20% margin on top of the inflated price already, it makes re-selling Supreme outside of the US extremely difficult. There are many ways to smoke cannabis, but perhaps none are as well-known as smoking a bowl in a pipe. Learning how to pack and smoke a bowl is an essential lesson in cannabis consumption that enthusiasts at both ends of the spectrum can benefit from. Whether you’re interested in packing a pipe for a personal smoking session or preparing a bowl for a party, understanding these fundamental principles will help optimize your bowl-smoking experience. What Is a Grinder and How Do You Use It for Cannabis? Cannabis contraptions come in all shapes and sizes, but smoking pipes are arguably the most popular. Adapted from traditional pipes used for tobacco, the cannabis pipe shares all of the same key characteristics. Pipes consist of a bowl, a round basin deep enough to pack herb in, as well as an airtight channel that delivers smoke and air through a mouthpiece. In many cases, pipes also contain a second air channel known as a carb that is used to regulate the airflow through the pipe. As long as a pipe contains the first two items at the very least, you can smoke cannabis out of it. Traditionally, pipes used for tobacco smoking were made out of material such as wood, bamboo, or even ceramics. However, cannabis pipes today are widely made using borosilicate glass, as the medium is incredibly versatile. While most states still widely market glass pipes as tobacco smoking accessories, they can be found in collectable and gift shops, and also head shops.
You can also find them online, at cannabis events, and even in high-end glass art museums. Pipes can vary widely in shape and size, as well as in complexity, functionality, and availability. Bongs and bubblers utilize water to filter cannabis smoke and cool it prior to inhalation. A common, basic type of pipe is called a “spoon,” because of its shape. These are the best pipes to begin with if you are new to cannabis, as they are small, easy to use, and are typically inexpensive. In order to smoke weed out of a pipe, you’re going to need a few essential items to get started.
Other than your bowl or pipe, you will need some form of heating element—the most basic one is a lighter. Traditional butane lighters work well, though there is a myriad of non-butane heating elements out there to choose from, if you want to avoid a butane flavor in your bowl. The most effective lighters and heaters will allow for optimal heating control when combusting or vaporizing a bowl. Some consumers prefer to light their bowls with hemp wick, a waxy piece of hemp string that ignites easily, maintains an even burn, and doesn’t give off an undesirable aftertaste.
