Why Smoke Buds?
Headquest Magazine's 10 QUESTIONS for
International Oddities' Bill Black
Headquest Magazine Full Interview, May 2007
|-Tell me about International Oddities (history, overview, products offered)
IO's development staff began tinkering with Mother Natures secrets
over 25 years ago. Inspired by an interest in healing and metaphysics,
we hit the astral floor running towards a new era of smoking that has
finally come of age. Our unique "eye in the sky" perspective gave us a
vantage point to draw from which has produced results some say are
Besides, tobacco use is passe, a by-product of the Betty Davis
generation so to speak. Our non-tobacco products draw on the analogy of
smoke as a representative force or symbolic gateway towards higher
realms of awareness. We find this considerably preferable to the traditional nicotine rut.
-Where do you get all your buds from?
Our products can be said to be represented from the four corners of the
globe. We had a pretty good idea of the quality and semi-miracle we
were looking for at the onset, but to have commercial quantities of
such rare botanicals has always proved to be a challenge. Fortunately
though, not an impossibility.
-How do you find them/how are they grown?
Occasionally its seems like some Indiana Jones adventure. Our
preference is to take a product from seed to smoke and that always
proves to be its own particular adventure. It has to be a labor of love
because no one would retain the staying power required without a
passion for the product.
-What exactly are these buds?
We like to use the term "Hybrid" although that term has been subject to
some abuse in the market as of late. We detest the term "Herbal Blends"
because that implies mixing a few bags of $2 a pound herbs together and
telling people to smoke it. Some of our products have been so expensive
to develop for commercial distribution it will take years for those
lines to produce a profit....but hell-we didn't get into this for the
money. It was more of a calling if we may be so bold.
-What feelings does smoking these elicit?
You ask a very subjective and spiritually personal question, not unlike
"what does the color of blue taste like" or "what dimensional variation
of mind is unraveled in the sensory overload of a rose"...But here you
"Each International Oddities product offers a smoking experience of a
unique vibratory level of delight, ultimately illuminating many
stopping posts for contemplation of the great unraveling mysteries of
-How is the response been toward these products?
As multi-faceted as there are smokers in paradise. We find it amusing
that consumers love our line, presentation, and perspective but stores
oftentimes have no reference point for what they think is just a pack of cigarettes, but isn't a pack of cigs at all. It's actually a R.Y.O. "box of buds" with rolling papers
built right in the side of the pack. Our products are "some assembly
required" and there is little comparison to anything else in the market
like it...and the matter gets even more complex once you smoke one.
Aahh that is the price of innovation I suppose. By the way we should
point out our products are expensive by some stores standards.
-What are your best sellers?
Some accelerated sellers tend to be regionally specific but if we
consider the US market as a whole, sales are spread pretty evenly
throughout the 14 boxes and 7 canned buds we sell.
-What kind of display option do you offer?
Our "fresh-pack rolling kit" as we like to call our boxes comes in a
pop open carton rather like your traditional cigarette carton. Our 7
"pop-fresh cans" are generally stacked in the geometric pattern of your
-What's in store for the future?
We have a smoking accessory as well as clothing line coming out that
should prove as transgressionally divergent from the norm as our "box
of bud" and "can of bud" smoking products are.
-Anything else you'd like to add or something you want to make sure I
There have been hundreds of websites over the last few years that have
used our federally registered product names without permission and as a
result there has been a fair amount of confusion about who we are and
who we are not. No one to date can offer what we are able to provide
the public or we would happily buy from them!
By making available the
best Mother Nature has to offer from the furthest reaches of the Globe,
we set the standard for a new era of smoking pleasure...& invite you to
"Smoke the Exotic". For more information please visit www.BoxOfBud.com.
