2 Chainz has made headlines for his high-rolling habits in a video series for GQ, once embarking on a mission to smoke the most expensive joint in the world with Dr. Dina back in 2015, but it doesn’t come close to the tusk. Weavers already holds the record for the world’s largest blunt, in the form of a five-pound rocket launcher and Corwin claims that his latest creation is the world’s most expensive joint.
And while the winning bid didn’t exceed it’s actual value, Corwin is happy that it’s “staying in the family” and says, “ I’m just honored to be donating the proceeds of this event to support AWF’s important work to stop elephant poaching and end the horrific practice of trafficking ivory and other wildlife parts from threatened species. Tusks belong on live, healthy wild elephants and nowhere else.”
“Beyond throwing a party to celebrate our expansion, I wanted to incorporate a social cause element, so I decided to create a joint in the shape of a giant elephant tusk to signify the detrimental toll the ivory trade takes on wild elephants,” says Corwin.
After first inquiring with a Hollywood prop designer, who was unable to execute the masterpiece of marijuana for him, Corwin enlisted Weavers, a world-famous joint roller and artist, for the ambitious project. The process took more than two weeks to complete using one pound of Stone Road Farms’ ground cannabis and bubble hash (a refined hashish that bubbles when smoked) mixed with Team Elite Genetics’ award-winning flower and six ounces of Soilgrown Solventless concentrate (extract from the plant)—all wrapped with a blunt paper base topped with three layers of 24-karat gold Shine rolling papers.
The world’s most expensive joint weighs in at 1.5 pounds and measures 30 inches long.
Stone Road Farms, a Los Angeles-based cannabis startup specializing in organic pre-rolled joints and hand-crafted concentrates, hosted an exclusive, one-night only benefit on Thursday celebrating the company’s new compliance status in California. It was a picture-perfect pot party, but a custom joint valued at $24,000 that was commissioned for the soirée’s auction has stolen the spotlight.
In total, the completely smokable joint weighs in at 1.5 pounds and measures 30 inches long , which Corwin says will be “a multi-day endeavor.” Among the invite-only crowd of 150 guests, it was ultimately auctioned off for $4,000 to one of Stone Road Farms’ original investors.
With a background in real estate development, Corwin entered the cannabis industry in 2017 to launch the luxury line and has also had a lifelong obsession with elephants thanks to his family, who has worked with the conservation organization since his childhood.
Held at Fig Earth Supply, an organic nursery in Downtown Los Angeles, the evening included vegan bites, cocktails, a joint-making bar and private performance from Gabriel Garzón Montano—all in support of the African Wildlife Foundation. Stone Road Farms founder Lex Corwin also toasted to the 11 dispensaries across the state now stocking their Grass Valley, Calif.-grown strains hand-rolled in clean-burning plant cellulose paper imported from France and packaged in gorgeous glass tubes.

Powerful grow lights like HPS, LECs or LEDs produce the biggest and most dense buds
Drying/curing the right way will make buds smell better, look better, be more dense, and buds will actually feel more potent!
4.) Better Taste, Better Smell – Increase Terpene Content
Humidity stumps a lot of new growers and causes several unexpected problems.
If you haven’t really been paying attention during the drying/curing part of your grow, you should focus here for the greatest gains in quality!
In fact, the things you do during and after harvest, including drying/curing, makes up almost 50% of your final bud appearance!
For 1-3 plants smaller to mid-sized plants, you’ll probably be fine with an oscillating fan or two. With a big grow and hot lights, you’ll need a better exhaust system to ensure proper airflow, but it can be easy to set up!
- Low Nitrogen (N) – Give your plant relatively low levels of Nitrogen, especially in the second half of the flowering stage when the plant has stopped growing vegetatively and buds are fattening up. The plant needs a lot of Nitrogen for vegetative growth but doesn’t need nearly as much for making buds. In fact, too much nitrogen in the ripening stage can discourage bud production and hurt your yields.
- Plenty of Phosphorus (P) – Phosphorus is incredibly important to flower production and giving plants plenty of Phosphorus in the flowering stage will help increase the total number of flowers
- Potassium (K) – Potassium is often overlooked compared to Phosphorus (which is often considered a bud booster) but Potassium may actually be even more important! Providing a good source of Potassium increases the size and density of each individual flower.
