First Colorado, then Washington, then Oregon—this trifecta of recreational cannabis has breathed new life into the marijuana industry. The very idea of the consummate pot smoker has been smashed. Everything we knew about weed has changed—and for the better.
Cannabis (and her plain and sturdy twin, Hemp) have been supplying the world’s beauty products with their rich, luxurious oil for millennia, but new laws and discoveries have shown us that these plants are capable of so much more. From the ubiquitous body lotions to the medicated cold-pressed juice, new and exciting cannabis products surprise us every day.
In the same ballpark as hemp oil touting skin care products, THC/CBD-enriched bath bombs, oils and salts have revolutionized stoner spa day for an entire generation. These next level relaxation boosters sooth sore muscles, rejuvenate tired bodies and leave you feeling like a euphoric soft caramel chew (that may or may not also contain weed).
Edibles are also experiencing a legitimate renaissance. Not only are five-star chefs serving tasting menus paired and/or cooked with specially grown weed strains, aspiring food scientists worldwide are formulating weed soda pops, beef jerkies, cold brew coffees, and fast foods. Gummies, chocolate bars, and baked goods have also gotten the full retail treatment, sporting artisan ingredients and designer labels.
