In a world where cannabis and its use is still stuck in the “gray” legally, there exists a high end world of consumers willing to pay top dollar to show off their cannabis lifestyle.
Who buys these products? The same people who are willing to pay $100 for a small basket of groceries from Whole Foods or $34 for a single Soul Cycle class. There is a, albeit small, group of stoners willing to pay top dollar for their cannabis and cannabis accessories.
Let’s explore some of the brands who are catering directly to this crowd.
This jewelry designer’s customer list is basically just a who’s who of Hollywood, full of every A-list celebrity you can think of…Chanel Iman, Emily Ratajkowski, Rihanna and Alessandra Ambrosio to name just a few.
Jacquie Aiche is also a cannabis enthusiast. How do we know? Well, she hosted a party for a cannabis non-profit called Spark The Conversation, with guests like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner showing up, and she has an entire line of epic (and expensive) cannabis accessories.
From custom Rolex watches adorned with diamond cannabis leafs, to $400 snake skin doob tubes and $5,000 gold hoop earrings with diamond encrusted weed leaves, Jacquie Aiche is truly taking cannabis accessories to the next level. Who among us doesn’t want to be decked out in diamonds and weed leafs, carrying our joints in lavish containers?
Serra prides itself on being a “high end dispensary providing the very best recreational marijuana shopping experience in Portland and Eugene, Oregon.”
The interior of their three locations ooze cool. With whitewashed walls and industrial furniture, Serra has the perfect aesthetic for Oregon’s hipster scene. Serra’s classic minimalist style spills into everything they offer: from their gourmet chocolate edibles, to their $200 bongs and gold plated vape pens.
Serra is just one example of dispensaries catering to a high-end crowd. As the cannabis industry evolves, we can certainly expect to see more of this trend.
Van der Pop
Do you need a slim, beautifully designed grinder that fits into your wallet like a credit card? What about an Italian leather clutch with a proprietary 3-digit lock to keep your stash away from unintended hands? Or maybe a $140 palladium, modern bowl with a fun geometric design to smoke all that top shelf cannabis?
Enter Van der Pop, another brand that is upping the ante when it comes to cannabis accessories. Started by a very stylish mom in Seattle, Van der Pop has become a go-to for high-end, quality accessories that won’t totally break the bank.
Mothership Glass x Scott Deppe
Now, if you are in the mood to completely break the bank this next company is for you.
Created by master glassblower Scott Deppe, whose glass pieces go for more than $100,000 in some instances, Mothership Glass exists to bring elite stoners the most artistic, unique and expensive glass pieces. The pieces offered online are intricately handmade and go through a relentless review process. That’s why these pieces go for about $3,000 minimum. A simple arm piece for their bongs, with a 18k gold coin inside, can cost up to $500.
These pieces are so beautiful, I cannot imagine ever actually bringing flame to one. It’s no wonder Snoop Dogg is a fan of Scott Deppe and Mothership Glass’ work.
