As electronic smoking increases in popularity, who else than the Dutch would come up with an electronic version of the joint?

Dutch company invents world’s first electric joint called the E-Njoint

The Netherlands is known for its cannabis-friendly “coffee shops” and a Dutch company is the first to develop an electric joint, dubbed the E-Njoint.

There are now 10,000 e-spliffs in production daily, selling to the European market at cigarette stores and retail shops, for people attending dance parties, music events and bars and clubs.

The first batch of the E-Njoint is disposable and is designed in the “typical” shape of a marijuana joint. Adding to the novelty, a green cannabis leaf lights up through the chrome plated tip, each time the user takes a puff. It also comes in 6 fruity flavours.

The E-Njoint is affiliated with Tikun Olam, a well known medical cannabis company and contains no THC, tobacco or nicotine. The second and third editions of the e-spliff can be filled by users with their own cannabis liquid content and can also be used to smoke dry herbs.

InsureandGo warned a common travel insurance exclusion was partaking in excessive drinking or recreational drugs, whether related to medical, baggage, liability or anything else. So make sure you check with your travel insurance provider to see what circumstances and activities are not covered by your policy.

E-Njoint CEO Menno Contant said the E-Njoint sets a new step in the hot topic of cannabis, where opinions vary and so do local regulations. “As long as you don’t bother or disturb other people and stay within the legal boundaries, all is well.”

“Holland is well known in the world for its tolerant and liberal attitude toward soft drugs and the introduction of this new product clearly makes a statement.”

If you’re jet-setting overseas soon make sure you organise your travel money and comprehensive travel insurance before you leave.
