Originally from Nags Head, North Carolina, we decided it was time to expand and what better place to do it than the capitol? After all, it had just recently been rated as one of the best cities to live! We opened our doors March of 2014 in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. Coined the “Godzilla of Smoke Shops”, our location is almost 5,000 sq ft of the widest and most extensive collection of tobacco, hemp, and vape products on the market.
Over the past 8 years, we have expanded ferociously within our walls to continue to maximize the availability and variety of products offered.

We are an original participant in Raleigh’s First Friday Art Walk, where we have been able to let local musicians and artist come express and display their work freely; providing free keg beer and discounts on our merchandise.
