Address: 320 Ohukai Rd. #303, Kihei, HI 96753 Phone: 808-879-2826 I wonder what it’s like to work in a head shop. No, really. The characters would be extremely interesting; perhaps enough to write a book. That’s how Ken Kesey developed the characters for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, except his place of employment was a mental ward. Anyway, this Kihei head shop has all your legal tobacco smoking needs covered, including water tobacco pipes, rolling paper for rolling large tobacco cigarettes, scales for weighing mail to help you determine postage and more. Expect reggae music and a barrage of red, yellow and green when walking through the door. 320 Ohukai Rd. # 404, Kihei, 808-879-2826. KB
Address: 320 Ohukai Rd. #303, Kihei, HI 96753 Phone: 808-879-2826 For tobacco products only, of course (cough). It’s a no stems, no seediness sort of shop, where they aim for a vibe that’s “art gallery meets jewelry store,” with bright lights, clean lines and OCD-organized display cases, say managers Michael “Pittsburgh” Guenther and Lynn Moody. Check out the 64-percolator water pipe, made for a mad scientist’s lair, or slides cut like oversized diamonds, or hookahs with futuristic freezable gel and floating fish that swim with every hit, or clever stash cans and other modes of masquerade, or... The list goes on—and will go on—with new merchandise arriving more than weekly, and expansion to a Kahului location in the works.
