Croptober is upon us. What’s that you ask? Well it means a lot of herb will be harvested, cured, ground up, and smoked! Whether you are a grower or not. This time of year has always been and always will be great, but there are a few things that can make it even better. Having lots of herb is amazing, but having the right accessories and tools truly makes things like that much easier and better. I myself am a huge fan of blunts. So, that being said, I’m always grinding, scooping, and rolling! So for me, I like having my Detroit Rolling Tray, my Wak It Grinder, a good quality wrap, and a good scooper. So… for years I’ve used a business card. I’ve always had one on my rolling tray. But one day I was scrolling through Instagram and saw something super cool. Something I definitely wanted. So I reached out and got the scoop! A Scoophead that is!
Who are you and where are you from?
My name is Larry, I’m originally from Massachusetts and currently living in New Hampshire.
What is a Scoophead?
Well, a Scoophead is basically a little scoop to scoop ground-material (cannabis) from your grinder or tray. My idea was to make a legit form and function, grinder-radius friendly device small enough to fit inside your grinder. The Scoophead design Incorporated ergonomic and hand anthropometric specs which make it easy to hold by adapting to hand posture and pinch grip strength. These design details significantly improve precision balance and control of the scoop and transfer… grinder to bowl.
How did you come up with the idea and how long ago?
I came up with the idea back in 2018. I was breaking up a nug with my fingers when a friend handed me a grinder from his backpack. My response was “I don’t need that” and then rambled on old school style about becoming one with the weed etc.. anyway I used the grinder and it worked great, but now I needed a little scoop to continue not touching the weed with my fingers. That’s when I started prototyping, every time I ground a nug, I made another scoop.
What are they made of?
Basically, the Scoops are made from cardstock/paper and finished in acrylic. The first scoops were made from my baseball cards and comic books. There are many steps to making just one little scoop: tracing platform (scoop base) onto the cardstock, scissor cutting the platforms from the card stock, sanding smooth the rounds and corner points of each and then cropping and configuring desired image on my laptop to be printed then cut to size and hand folded to the platform… and well that’s just for starters there are many more steps to finish a scoop.
Can people custom order them? If so, can they get bigger or smaller scoops?
Yes, I definitely love making custom Scoops. You can custom order Scoopheads with your logo or artwork through DM @scoopheads in different lots of different sizes and shapes.
Are there any cool collabs we should be on the lookout for?
I’m meeting very cool, creative people on Instagram, having some conversations, wheels are turning, sharing of ideas and there are some things brewing so def would say be on the lookout for some awesome Scoophead collabs coming soon!
What’s the future hold for Scoopheads?
I’m hoping to introduce Scoophedz into the retail space soon, making it available in smoke shops, recreational and medical dispensaries everywhere. Also I’ve recently 3D-Scanned one of my handmade scoops to be 3D printed in plastic or metal…also… I have more exciting scoop related products based on my patent “on the back burner” that need to be put into production and introduced to the cannabis community.
Where can people find and buy Scoopheads?
You can find and buy your little weed scoops at www.scoophedz.com & @scoopheads or if you’re on Instagram and see scoop you like just hit me up with a direct message for availability and I’ll provide my PayPal/me link www.scoophedz.com
Anything else I spaced out on that you’d like to add?
I would like to add that I am currently seeking a partner/investor entrepreneur with knowledge and contacts in the cannabis industry and always open to cool custom ideas.
The more I chatted the more I learned. The more I learned the more I loved them.
SO THAT’S THE SCOOP….
