The brunch, the ear buds, the bi-coastal workwear…consume the city like a native New Yorker and get ready for cannabis luxe.
The high life
Cannabis oil products low in psychoactive THC are already popping up in clubs, coffee shops and new store MedMen – the ‘Starbucks of weed’– on Fifth Avenue, as the city gears up for legal change.
“We will be searching out locations in New York,” says Ron Throgmartin, CEO of premium West Coast cannabis stores Diego Pellicer. When the time comes, New Yorkers can expect some pretty exciting shopping: this summer, Diego Pellicer sold a gold leaf “cannagar”, or cannabis cigar, for a stratospheric $10,000.
