The trend could help boost the overall CBD market, which Piper pegs at worth $50 billion to $100 billion on day.

Pot of gold: how the UK beauty industry fell for cannabis - Cannabis News

Cannabis has enjoyed an image overhaul of which most politicians could only dream.

Almost ten years ago, the drug was upgraded to Class B – yet today, bottles of cannabis-derived cannabidiol (CBD oil) can be bought in Holland & Barret for £19.99, with a few drops under the tongue being touted as a balm for insomnia, epilepsy and more.

CBD oil (as opposed to the THC found in cannabis, which remains illegal in the UK) is non-psychoactive – in other words, it won’t get you high.

Weed Fashion That Says ‘I Love Cannabis, But I’m Tasteful About It’ - Cannabis News

Weed has never been more fashion-forward than it is now. In addition to all the tacky tees with cheesy stoner slogans and pot-leaf-covered pants, there’s a growing amount of subtle, stylish articles of Mary Jane-friendly clothing that you’ll actually want to wear.

Even supermodels like Bella Hadid are adding weed to their closet if that’s any indication of how far weed fashion has come over the years.

On her Insta, there’s a recent photo of her sporting a high-end necklace with diamond and ruby-encrusted pot leaves.

Us regular folk can’t afford fancy jewels from Bulgari, but that doesn’t mean we have to settle for stereotypically cheap stoner apparel.

How Hollywood Does High-End Cannabis - Cannabis News

The Hollywood Reporter’s guide to pot in Los Angeles reveals a smoking-hot market: "The normalization happened more quickly than expected."

Four months after recreational marijuana became available in California, new products and experiences offering a high-end high are blooming, and in some corners, cannabis is becoming as much a part of the L.A. lifestyle as juice cleanses and hiking Runyon.

You can work it out at Higher Self Yoga, where vape pens are distributed at the beginning of class to help "ease into the sacred"; treat yourself to a Canna-cure pedicure at Bellacures; score an $889, one-of-a-kind, hand- carved Argentinian blue onyx pipe from pot lifestyle boutique Mister Green; then hit Alfred Tea & Coffee for a CBD-infused peach ginger iced matcha.

On a high: the rise of cannabis skincare - Cannabis News

Marijuana moisturiser, sativa serum, pot perfume — the beauty industry has found its next hit.

“Cannabis is America’s latest gold-rush,” says Alexia Inge, the co-founder of website Cult Beauty, which is known for spotting industry trends.

While the plant itself has been on the fringes of the beauty industry for some time, it’s the cannabis-derivative cannabidiol (or CBD) that is now getting all the hype.

As the legalisation of marijuana use in certain US states and discoveries about the medical benefits of the fabled green plant filter into the beauty industry, cannabidiol, which has no psychoactive effects, is about to hit the mainstream as the next miracle ingredient.

High fashion gets higher with designs celebrating cannabis - Cannabis News

The intersection of marijuana and fashion at one time meant tie-dye shirts, beanies and Birkenstocks.

And “stoner style” certainly hasn’t gone away, with no shortage of affordable T-shirts, leggings, flip-flops and more that help the masses wear their love for weed on their sleeves.

But as cannabis consumption becomes fashionable, the world of high fashion is also embracing the plant in subtle and bold ways.

“It’s like pairing beauty and bliss,” said Jacquie Achie, a Los Angeles-based fine jewelry designer best known for her line featuring delicate gold cannabis leafs. “Fashion and cannabis both inspire a unique sense of empowerment and confidence. With these energies combined, the result is pure perfection.”

Hemp Goes High Fashion With Bad Decision Adventure Club - Cannabis News

The hemp-based clothing line is thinking big.

Now hemp is going high fashion with emerging apparel brand Bad Decision Adventure Club (BDAC).

Usually, hemp is the fabric of choice for pro-marijuana types since the fiber is derived from plant cannabis sativa. Industrial varieties without the psychoactive properties have been grown since the 5th century B.C. when Phoenicians used hemp for sail cloth.

Discreetly Green: Handbags for Pot Smokers – Cannabis News

With the passage of California’s proposition 64, which legalized the use of marijuana for recreational use, LA luxury handbag company AnnaBis is looking to take the stink out of carrying weed.

Say what you will about the recent election, there was good news for proponents of legalizing marijuana.

On Nov. 9, voters in three states—California, Nevada and Maine—approved measures legalizing marijuana for recreational use, and four more—Florida, Montana, North Dakota and Arkansas —approved measures legalizing pot for medical uses.

Proponents of legalized pot have touted the medical benefits as well as the economic benefits as a pot-related industry has sprouted up in states where marijuana was legal. There wasn’t much of a fashion angle to the story, however--until now.
