Peruse a Head Shop From Home

  • 3170 Leavenworth St., Ste B, Omaha

What better way to celebrate 4/20 than getting a delivery from a head shop? This feature, offered by Leavenworth Coughy, is perfect for the especially lazy stoners this holiday season. Anything you need – papers, water pipes, CBD products – can get delivered to your door, between the hours of 2 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Supporting your local head shop means supporting the talents of marvelous, hard-working glass blowers. And Coughy – one of Omaha’s most successful head shops – has a great selection to peruse online or in person.

If you choose to stop in the store, you must wear a mask. Staring aimlessly at the glass cases, displaying a spectrum of glass art, is a must for any visitor at any given time at any given glass shop.

No matter your style, you owe it to yourself to check out Coughy on 4/20. Get yourself that vase-shaped water pipe or help a loved one by purchasing CBD oil.
