“Beyond throwing a party to celebrate our expansion, I wanted to incorporate a social cause element, so I decided to create a joint in the shape of a giant elephant tusk to signify the detrimental toll the ivory trade takes on wild elephants,” says Corwin.

And while the winning bid didn’t exceed it’s actual value, Corwin is happy that it’s “staying in the family” and says, “ I’m just honored to be donating the proceeds of this event to support AWF’s important work to stop elephant poaching and end the horrific practice of trafficking ivory and other wildlife parts from threatened species. Tusks belong on live, healthy wild elephants and nowhere else.”
After first inquiring with a Hollywood prop designer, who was unable to execute the masterpiece of marijuana for him, Corwin enlisted Weavers, a world-famous joint roller and artist, for the ambitious project. The process took more than two weeks to complete using one pound of Stone Road Farms’ ground cannabis and bubble hash (a refined hashish that bubbles when smoked) mixed with Team Elite Genetics’ award-winning flower and six ounces of Soilgrown Solventless concentrate (extract from the plant)—all wrapped with a blunt paper base topped with three layers of 24-karat gold Shine rolling papers.
The world’s most expensive joint weighs in at 1.5 pounds and measures 30 inches long.
Stone Road Farms, a Los Angeles-based cannabis startup specializing in organic pre-rolled joints and hand-crafted concentrates, hosted an exclusive, one-night only benefit on Thursday celebrating the company’s new compliance status in California. It was a picture-perfect pot party, but a custom joint valued at $24,000 that was commissioned for the soirée’s auction has stolen the spotlight.
Held at Fig Earth Supply, an organic nursery in Downtown Los Angeles, the evening included vegan bites, cocktails, a joint-making bar and private performance from Gabriel Garzón Montano—all in support of the African Wildlife Foundation. Stone Road Farms founder Lex Corwin also toasted to the 11 dispensaries across the state now stocking their Grass Valley, Calif.-grown strains hand-rolled in clean-burning plant cellulose paper imported from France and packaged in gorgeous glass tubes.
With a background in real estate development, Corwin entered the cannabis industry in 2017 to launch the luxury line and has also had a lifelong obsession with elephants thanks to his family, who has worked with the conservation organization since his childhood.
2 Chainz has made headlines for his high-rolling habits in a video series for GQ, once embarking on a mission to smoke the most expensive joint in the world with Dr. Dina back in 2015, but it doesn’t come close to the tusk. Weavers already holds the record for the world’s largest blunt, in the form of a five-pound rocket launcher and Corwin claims that his latest creation is the world’s most expensive joint.
Stone Road Farms commissioned a smokable elephant tusk for an auction benefiting the African Wildlife Foundation.

Around midnight last night, the former Disney darling shared a photo of herself smoking what appears to be a blunt that’s bigger than her entire head.
“One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon,” she told the music mag.
During an interview with Rolling Stone in 2013, the “Wrecking Ball” crooner revealed that she thinks “weed is the best drug on Earth.”
“Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs—social drugs. They make you want to be with friends. You’re out in the open. You’re not in a bathroom. I really don’t like coke. It’s so gross and so dark. It’s like what are you, from the ’90s? Ew.”
