The brainchild of Stone Road Farms, a cannabis start-up specializing in pre-rolled cannabis, the super-joint is wrapped in three layers of 24-karat gold leaf and contains one pound of ground cannabis and bubble hash mixed with other plant extracts. In total the smokable joint weighs 1.5lbs and measures 30 inches.

The joint was auctioned at the opening of an organic dispensary in Downtown Los Angeles with the proceeds of the sale going to the African Wildlife Foundation. However, after collecting just $4,000 at the charity event, the firm received a fraction of its projected value.
