University of Alberta student Simon Grigenas was recovering from a head injury when he was prescribed medical cannabis as a way to cope with his symptoms.

After testing out various ways of consuming marijuana, he felt like something was missing.

“I just found there was definitely lack of functionality and innovation in the cannabis industry,” Grigenas told CBC’s Radio Active.

Glass bongs break easily, and most pipes get covered in residue after just a few uses and aren’t easily washable.

That’s where Grigenas’ BRNT Designs comes in.

He, along with three other University of Alberta students, made the Hexagon — a bong he hopes will shake up the marijuana accessory business just in time for the recreational market, when marijuana becomes legal on July 1, 2018.

The bong is made of a ceramic-glass blend and is dishwasher and freezer safe. It’s also made to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye, so it can act as an accent piece on a coffee table — or even stick a flower in it.
