It wasn’t too long ago that marijuana enthusiasts had a very limited menu to choose from. For most of us, cannabis was regulated to buying whatever was available from local dealers or friends. Product diversity meant that your “guy” had more than one strain but did not know what either of them were.
Fast forward to 2018 where the entire country (and most of the U.S.) have been permeated by legalization in one form or another. A deluge of diverse products now exist, including edibles, concentrates, topicals, pet treats and much more.
The invention of these life-changing items has also given way to varying degrees of quality. Users who once had no real choice at all can suddenly determine the exact potency of their desired experience.
These new options have paved the way for luxury cannabis.
The idea of luxury cannabis is simple, one just needs to look at other industries. You can buy a mass-produced chocolate chip cookie in a bag at the supermarket or go to a restaurant for a piece of delicious cheesecake. If you need a car, you can get a KIA or go for a Lexus if you have the financial ability to do so.
Same goes for weed. Your local dealer is still there and hoping you will come back, but why do you need to with a myriad of high quality choice available on the web?
Take edibles for example. At one time eating marijuana was regulated to poorly flavoured brownies that tasted more like pot than anything else. Couple that with the haphazard potency of any given treat, it’s no wonder weed had a bad wrap in the food department.
Those do-it-yourself edibles made by your friend or neighbor are fine if you want them, but they simply don’t compare to gourmet chocolates made with an exact 10-1 ratio of THC and CBD or perhaps some antioxidant filled infused maple syrup.
Drinks or “drinkables” are now common in the world of weed as well. These discreet and delicious products come as iced tea, pink lemonade, sports recovery drinks, and many more. They are miles ahead of the days where enjoying cannabis meant a strong smell and a room filled with smoke. These beverages you can ingest on the go and no one will be the wiser.

Then there are concentrates. Ten years ago someone might think you were talking about juice, but now, products like Shatter, Terp Sap, and CO2 Honey Oil are replacing extra strong experiences we only received at one time from quality hash.
The opulence of pot doesn’t stop with humans these days either. The idea of pets consuming cannabis sounds almost absurd, but it turns out cannabis is just as good for man’s (and woman’s) best friend. Now your little fur baby can relish in an organic, vegan CBD nose and paw balm designed to heal dry skin for dogs.
The list of items go on and on.
Pot extravagance isn’t just being enjoyed by everyday stoners who want some next-level experiences either. In the September 2017 issue of Vogue Magazine, the world-famous trend setting publication wrote a lengthy piece on how to throw a cannabis-infused dinner party. In the article, the author discusses delectable offerings such as lobster mac n cheese with an etouffee sauce and bread pudding with caramel, chantilly cream, infused with Girl Scout Cookies.
Regardless of how you choose to take your dose of cannabis, these days there are experiences out there that are worth having. Luxury may seem like frivolity, but if you want optimum potency, taste, and delivery, luxury quickly becomes necessity.
