Emerald Magazine Features Flights
Discretion and convenience are often afterthoughts in the cannabis industry, but this newly launched company is, well…making it their business. As the world’s first enterprise of its type, Flights fills the industry niche by offering an entirely exclusive product: single-serving, pre-ground, vacuum-sealed ReadyPacks in eco-groovy and unscented containers.
The Santa Cruz-based company, which officially launched in late 2015, is already turning heads with its award winning, ready to use cannabis. This January, Flights’ claimed first prize for ‘Best New Product’ at San Francisco’s premiere event, HempCon.
Each single-serving carton is portable and takes the hassle out of self-grinding or sealing. “Flights’ is an all-in-one solution. Say goodbye to your grinder, rolling tray and all the things that come along with keeping your own product,” says Flights’ co-founder Geoff Perryn.
Customers can expect nothing but top-shelf, high quality bud that is both de-stemmed, and ground to perfection. The best part — the pocket-sized packs are virtually odorless.
The specially designed vacuum-sealed packaging is a trade secret that took more than two years of research and development, explains Perryn. “They are designed to be odor free – [but when] opened, it bursts with beautiful aromas that are associated with good, quality cannabis. We are one of a kind in that sense.”

OC Weed Review Features FLIGHTS
As the editor of a marijuana review site, I spend a surprising amount of time on the road, visiting company headquarters, attending conferences, and covering the many Cannabis Cups, Hempcons, and other assorted “fests” that are crammed into each calendar year. With all this moving around, it is essential to have discreet medication on hand that can be stashed away easily in luggage yet is ready to go on a moment’s notice.
That is the exact role Flights ReadyPacks were designed to fill. Flights have cornered this market and made it all their own. Their ultra thin, scent sealed packs mean they are odor free until you tear them open. Just rip open the top of the sealed ReadyPack and then peel it open. Because the flower is pre-ground, it saves time when on the go.

Inverse Magazine Features FLIGHTS
Getting stoned used to entail a whole grubby process of haggling and sneaking around. It still does in some places, but the weed legalization movement is spreading across America at a clip.
Brett Yader, co-founder of Flights, a company specializing in prepackaged, single-serve hits of marijuana, says that the movement around legalization makes now the perfect time to jettison old stereotypes and the old methods of consumption that birthed them. For future stoners, Yader tells Inverse, getting weed will be the least interesting part of getting stoned and getting stoned won’t be interesting at all. It will just be nice.
