Our Story

We Are Nekktar

In 2018, Julia joined the medical marijuana program in Chicago after suffering multiple concussions and began micro-dosing cannabis daily. Quickly, she found that it was difficult to carry her medicine, cannabis, around with her when she wanted to go anywhere. She was embarrassed to use doob tubes because they were clear, said (not so) funny things on them, and were made to carry just 1 joint. Julia wanted to feel comfortable and confident carrying her medicine with her and she dreamed up a product called BuzzBoxx (a box that gets you buzzed).

It took Julia and Tim almost 2 years, 7 versions and 100 product testers to land on the product we have today. During that process, they learned that consumption habits are changing, consumers are looking for products that allow them to move freely, and that our products should be as stylish and sleek like the newest tech accessory in your collection.

Fast forward 4 years later and the dad-daughter duo has become a strong team of 5. With over 2,000 customers and 0 products returned, we understand that there is a need for reliable cannabis and medicine storage. Today Nekktar is building modern storage for modern medicine.
