THE HQ Event

Thank you for visiting the HQ website.  All wholesale companies are open and ready to work with you.


Remember, remember, the 3rd of November! It’s decision time, folks—and whether you’re aligning red or blue, this is going to be a hot one. For the undecideds out there, we get it. It’s tough to decide between a handsy, senile old man who mutters random nonsense and a (pause) handsy senile old man who mutters random nonsense. But that’s as far as we’ll go in addressing the choice, lest we stumble left or right of center and get torn to bits by partisan trolls. We’re just thankful that voting is still a thing we can do in this country and pray it remains as such in the future. 


Speaking of the future, have you signed up for the HQ Event and Trade Show yet?  If not, what are you waiting for? Having doubts? Just remember, it’s being put on by the amazing Smoke Shop Events and yours truly, the most trusted and longest-running publication in the space.  If you think we’d put our names on a dud, you need to get better at thinking. Anyway, happy November, happy Turkey day, and Happy Black Friday, fellow Heads on the Quest! We’ll see you in December.
