Pride is for loving yourself just the way you are, but a little pampering doesn’t hurt either. Denali Foxx, star of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13, is kicking off Pride 2021 with the ultimate self-care guide: The deluxe Bella Box by Denali, a limited-edition cannabis-inspired box full of goodies to make you feel fabulous. Produced in partnership with the Latinx-led, femme-forward “highbrid” boutique Canna Bella Lux and the LGBTQIA+ events collective Peach Presents, Bella Box by Denali features ethically-made sustainable gifts and supports small businesses, people of color, and the LGBTQIA+ community. The inaugural premium box set from Canna Bella Lux, it has never been easier or more fun to get high with a little help from your friends.
“Cannabis has always been an important part of unwinding and inspiring many creative outlets in my career,” says Denali. “Not only do I enjoy its calming properties, but it helps me conceptualize a lot of new, exciting things through drag. I want my fans to feel the same sense of ease and creativity when they use the accessories in the Bella Box.”

Items in the Bella Box are designed to elevate one’s mood for relaxation and inspiration. The main attractions are the Denali Pre-Roll Cones, pink cones with silver tips that evoke the eponymous Ice Queen (a double gold medalist in United States Figure Skating). Ultra thin and slow burning, made from natural eco-friendly palm pulp rolling paper, with natural coloring and pigments from edible, tasteless hempseed and soy oils, these ethically-sourced and chemical-free pre-rolls provide an excellent cool-down amid Hot Girl Summer. An exclusive Denali lighter and glossy rolling tray complete the experience so that spark-up feels more like “Lights, camera, action!”
To add a little extra decadence to the smoke sesh, the Bella Box also includes a Pink Sugar Bath Bomb, handcrafted by trained artisans with natural and organic oils to ensure the sweetest bath ever. A 100 percent cotton white top, the Denali Summer Tank, completes the box set and flatters everyone with comfort and luxury.
And while happy consumers can light up Denali-style, a portion of the proceeds from each Bella Box also goes to benefit the nonprofit Brave Space Alliance. The organization is the first Black and trans-led LGBTQ+ center on Chicago’s South Side, and is dedicated to providing affirming, culturally competent, for-us-by-us resources for the city’s LGBTQIA+ community. It’s an ideal partnership for Canna Bella Lux, headquartered in Chicago, which has been transforming the city’s cannabis industry with a focus on inclusivity and representation for women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+.
Tiffany Woodman, Canna Bella Lux’s CEO, agrees the initiative is a perfect match. “Bellas embody our mission: lead with love, uplift others, and be extra,” she says. “Denali is all things Bella, and partnering with her on the very first Bella Box is an amazing way for us to not only offer fun, [luxe] self-care for people to enjoy during Pride, but also to support local POC and LGBTQ+ businesses, organizations and entertainers.”
So if you’re looking to celebrate Pride in ways that will soothe and thrill you, but also enhance others’ lives at the same time, Bella Box by Denali may be the key to your queendom. Lead with love, end with a hot bath – what could be better than that?
