Cannabis Culture: Cannabis Industry Trends
From fun new products to tech innovations, come back for our monthly roundup of what’s hot in cannabis culture to help you live an elevated life.
Made popular by a highly publicized San Francisco studio, Ganja Yoga is – as you may have guessed – yoga class under the influence of cannabis.
Several locations in many major cities nationwide now offer Ganja Yoga classes.
Rules vary, but don’t expect to buy, sell or smoke inside at most. Some allow vaping, – like The House of Yoga/ High Times in Toronto but for the most part, Canada’s pending legalization is just that – pending.
What you’ll get is a cannabis-consumer friendly class geared to relaxation and melding mind and body – principles both yogis and marijuana consumers hold close to heart.
A wonderful reason to say ‘Ohm….’
Rolling up a joint and passing it around in a circle used to be the rigueur way to consume cannabis. Now, with new technology and emerging legalization across Canada and the United States, new (and seemingly safer) ways to relax are increasing in popularity.
Expect to see more edibles including an uptick of newer options like gummies and lollipops, and an increase in cannabis haute cuisine and savoury options.
CBD oil itself has seen a huge rise in popularity as well, as a safer way to consume cannabis and to treat a variety of medical conditions.
Be sure to educate yourself about any new cannabis product you try to avoid negative experiences and potentially embarrassing or dangerous situations.
Alcohol is commonplace at many wedding receptions, so why not weed?
This year marked the first-ever Cannabis Wedding Expo in Denver, and there are two 2018 TBD dates in both Northern and Southern California.
The Cannabis Wedding Expo website boasts sophisticated ways to bring weed into your special day – like marijuana mixed into boutonnieres, and bouquets, perfectly rolled joints in pretty mason jars, and cannabis-themed takeaways to remember the special day.
Think open marijuana bars with ‘budtenders’ that create signature cannabis mixes for you, and beautiful glass bongs as practical, artful centrepieces. What’s not to love?
Cannabis-Infused Cocktails and Beyond
Weed-infused wine has been around for centuries (and was thought to treat pain in ancient China).
Canna Vine out of California recently released a commercial cannabis-infused wine. Currently, you’ll need a medical cannabis license to snag a bottle.
But that hasn’t stopped DIYers from putting plenty of weed cocktail recipes online, plus you can find hemp-infused products already on shelves.
Once legalization comes to Canada, there’s no telling the ways that cannabis and alcohol may be mixed – whether it’s in-store, at restaurants, or at home, we can’t wait to see what creative cocktails aficionados come up with.
Uptick in Home Delivery and Apps Catered to Finding Cannabis
Most of us are familiar with Weedmaps and Where’s Weed, the easiest ways to find local doctors and dispensaries with reliable ratings from other cannabis connoisseurs.
There are also apps like Frweed +, that helps you decipher what strain you likely have, and help discover your perfect strain by breaking things down into Indica, Sativa and other properties.
Then there are sites like Tweed Main Street, which brings together the highest quality Canadian growers and product producers for fast service for medicinal users.
With pending legalization, there’s no telling where weed and technology will take us.
