WOMEN YOU SHOULD KNOW: ROGUE PAQ'S FOUNDER, JESSICA CADMUS - RAISE YOUR RITUAL
MJL: Your tagline is "Raise Your Ritual." Talk to us about the importance of ritual in times like these and what we can do to raise our ritual.
JC: Ritual in "regular times" is an incredibly important way to stay centered and mindful. In these highly irregular times, ritual gets promoted to status level: Critical. Without these touch-points during the day, it's too easy to go down a rabbit hole or to let your mind spin out on unhealthy scenarios. Instituting rituals of all types provides comfort through structure when all else seems unstable.

Rogue Paq is an odor-proof, stylish carrying case. Founded by NYC stylist Jessica Cadmus, it’s so svelte you probably would never imagine it had anything to do with cannabis at all.

Unroll it and you’ll have instant access to multiple compartments to keep your stash happy. It can also be rolled up and tossed into a purse fairly quickly in case you’re ever in need of a speedy getaway.

BARNEYS OPENS THE HIGH END FOR POT ACCESSORIES
Jessica Cadmus is a stylist who created Rogue Paq, a luxury marijuana carrier case. "I was seeing toiletry bags, I was seeing pencil cases, shoeboxes, all kinds of unsophisticated ways to hold the ritual," she said. "I did some investigation, and then ended up designing something, 'cause I really didn't find anything that I thought was beautiful."

WHAT'S IN YOUR STASH? JESSICA CADMUS, FOUNDER & CREATOR OF ROGUE PAQ by Sharon Letts
...Rogue Paq’s motto is ‘Raise your Ritual,’ and for me, the idea of ritual is personal and important,” she mused. “When I smoke clearly designates the time of day when I can pause, slow myself down, and reflect. Elevating the ritual from that of mindless task to a fully realized experience. Each time I roll a joint it’s purposeful, because every element is intentional, as I set the stage in a beloved spot, taking my time, and using only tools and products I love.”
Those familiar with using medical hemostats for holding a roach will appreciate Cadmus’ gold hemostats for tamping and roach smoking. This tool is included in her upcoming line of high-end accessories set to launch June of 2019...

MOTHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE: THE BEST GIFTS FOR MOMS WHO LOVE VAPING by Warren Bobrow
...The BEST gifts for Moms. That's the gift list that I want to put together. Just returning from the Hall of Flowers, I was privy to some of the finest cannabis flowers in the world...Perhaps the greatest element of this B2B event was the opportunity to openly consume our cannabis, without fear of arrest. That stigma alone is my motivating force behind the use of vape pens. They are non antagonistic. They don't shout: I'm smoking a joint. They are designed for pleasure, some with added terpenes for taste and aromatics, still others are the exemplification of class and comfort against your lips. I was charmed by so many, but I only have room for eleven, so here goes...And all these items fit gently into my Rogue Paq!

PRODUCT REVIEW: ROGUE PAQ, ORGANIZED STORAGE TO MATCH ANY OUTFIT by Ashleigh Castro
Feel victorious while carrying the stunning Rogue Paq, an organizational adventure pouch. When I opened the belt of my stylish new case, a personalized frontward engraving wowed me. Gold-detailed zippers secure scent-suppressed storage pockets, providing ample space to stash a vaporizer and smoking tools. I filled the pouch which measures 8 inches long, 2 1/2 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches deep - with a thin vape pen, a PAX Era, cartridges and pods, a pre-roll two grams of cannabis, a lighter, glass joint tips, and rolling papers. The black leather (they also have a vegan option) is soft and gray inside, with smooth black matte on the exterior - it matches everything!

THE ONLY 4/20 WEED GEAR GUIDE YOU'LL EVER NEED by Callum Booth
I know I said this list is stuff that every stoner needs, but I couldn’t resist including the Rogue Paq. This fancy vape travel case is far from necessary (and at $325 for the leather version, it isn’t cheap either), but it sure is cool. It has a range of pockets and slots in which you can keep your smokeables, plus it’s been built to suppress the smell of your stankiest nugz...Is it necessary? No. But is it beautiful? Damn straight.

WHAT'S IN YOUR STASH? CANNABIS ALCHEMIST WARREN BOBROW by Sharon Letts
His finely made leather stash bag is the brainchild of New York wardrobe stylist Jessica Cadmus, via her company Rogue Paq. Cadmus is a Goldman Sachs alumna, also known as the Wardrobe Whisperer...When Cadmus saw her friends and colleagues putting cannabis inside old pencil cases and plastic baggies, she jumped into action, designing attractive soft-tooled leather pouches, purposefully for the mindful partaker... Warren shares, “I’m fortunate to enjoy [my ritual] during the day, and my Rogue Paq stash [bag] is scent-suppressant and elegantly visual. I’m always proud to bring it out in social situations.

Thank you Jessica for being the person who is intent on being herself. One stitch at a time.

BARNEYS IS COURTING THE MANOLO BLAHNIK-WEARING, MARIJUANA SMOKING CROWD by Jeanette Settembre
Outside of Barneys, other entrepreneurs have made a business of selling cannabis products to the 1%. New York-based Fashion stylist Jessica Cadmus, founder of Rogue Paq, was inspired to design her own luxury cannabis accessories last year when she discovered her wealthy, three-comma club clients on the West Coast were dressed to the nines in Chanel and Tom Ford, but toting around their recreational marijuana in un-chic containers you’d find in a college dorm.
February 15, 2019
Cadmus, who helps Wall Street executives choose clothes, noticed a need for bespoke vessels for C-suite types to store cannabis and associated smoking paraphernalia like grinders and vape pens for clients in states where recreational marijuana is legal.
THE 2018 CANNABIS GIFT GUIDE BY Elisabeth Garber-Paul
A couple years ago, stylist Jessica Cadmus noticed something funny when dealing with her high-end Manhattan customers. Even though many of them consumed weed — and had the most luxe weed accessories on the market — they kept their paraphernalia in cheap pencil cases or hotel toiletry bags, tossed directly into their Hermès purses and Dior coats. So she designed the Rogue Paq, a leather (or vegan leather) case with smell-proof compartments — including a removable center piece — fit to be pulled out in any environment, which her clients immediately embraced.

The inside consists of a zippered center tube that’s perfect for stowing vaporizers, pipes and other smoking accouterments (it also snaps out to become a smaller carrying case of its own) and two zippered side pockets to hold things such as vape cartridges, medical marijuana ID cards and driver’s licenses. There’s also a strip of elasticized fabric on one side to secure pens, poker tools and charging cords. The buttery soft leather version retails for $324.99 and the faux pebbled leather version for $100 less.
