The Luxury Meets Cannabis Conference was recently held in New York City and featured some of the top luxury brands in the cannabis space. Since New York doesn’t have a legal cannabis program yet, the brands are mostly CBD and many are centered around beauty. Still, not every company at LMCC was a beauty brands, there were accessories and edibles. Great Barrington MA dispensary Rebelle set up shop with a VIP lounge to introduce its new Halo mist fast onset oral spray. Here are some of our favorite items from LMCC:
Aurora Sparkling Hemp Beverage
These handcrafted sparkling beverages from Aurora feature fabulous flavors like Cayenne Citron, Rosemary Grapefruit and Lavender Orange. They are made with sustainably grown hemp and hops from the Pacific Northwest. Bright, balanced, and refreshing, Aurora is made in small batches with a proprietary blend of whole plant extracts to deliver a layered experience that restores and rejuvenates the mind and body. Each of the 200ml bottles of hemp beverage contains 25mg of hemp extract and zero THC. The elixirs are made with a blend of broad spectrum hemp oil and raw extract hemp oil. Talk about feeling refreshed!
Rose Los Angeles was in the house with its tasty rosin-infused edibles. Rose Delights are Turkish Delight-style infused edibles using rosin extracted from the whole flower. The house-made full-spectrum flower rosin preserves the beneficial natural properties of the plant, honoring the plant in its original form while providing the best quality experience. If you like Turkish delights, you’ll love these. We tasted the White Rock Ranch Meyer Lemon, which is made with these namesake lemons, wild Heimang and freshly steeped thyme infused with Hudson Hemp and contained 10mg of CBD.
Who doesn’t love a good face oil? Oeuvre has a CBD + Bio-active + high-vibrational gemstones replenishing facial oil that is superb. It is lightweight and silky. The company has four products in all, but we only tried the facial oil. The foundation of the brand’s products is “the breakthrough Œ Complex: a Bio-Actives + Gemstone + Full Flower Hemp Extract infused formulation which is synergistically balanced to recalibrate skin’s natural functions, support one’s own natural biorhythm and maintain the natural elasticity of the epidermis.
The entire Oeuvre Artistry Collection is high performing & skin nourishing – infused with luxuriously clean, ethically and environmentally responsible ingredients including:
Apricot Kernel Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Olive Leaf & Flower Extract, Holy Basil Extract, Squalane and Hyaluronic Acid, plus Full Flower Hemp Extract, infused with Amethyst, Tourmaline, Quartz, Jade, Diamond & Gold to help transform everyday routines into revitalizing experiences that nourish both body and soul.” Yes, please.
Pure Dharma is a skin care line that is made with fast-acting nano CBD. The products target radiance, relief, relaxation and recharging. I tried the relief healing balm on my tired feet after two days at cannabis conferences and I felt the benefit very quickly. The Relief CBD Healing Balm is infused with pure plant extracts that soothe and relieve the body. It may reduce muscle aches, body pains, spasms, swelling and inflammation. The Relief CBD Bath Fizz has been infused with pure plant extracts that soothe and relieve the body and it is huge and smells lovely. It contains a powerful blend of essential oils to reduce joint pain, muscle tension and inflammation and i can’t wait to try it out.
Potent Kitchen let me taste a hazelnut chocolate CBD bar. It didn’t last long. So yummy and guilt-free with all that CBD goodness, I gobbled it down in a couple of days. Potent’s first seeds were sown in 2014. The company has found a permanent home in a hidden magical valley near Hotchkiss, Colorado. It was acquired by PSC Group, a Global Hempower house in 2018. “We’ve grown from a farm to a vertically integrated business: growing, extracting, formulating, and producing natural finished products for many 3rd party brands, as well as for our Pet brand Tempo and Tails and our Chocolate Co-Brand MUZE CBD.”
I loved the Hunny Bunny Healing Hair Oil. It goes from pre-styling to finishing to total hair rejuvenation. Enhanced with Organic Hemp CBD that’s grown in the USA and the sweet, floral essence of honeysuckle. Buh-bye, bad hair days! If you have dry frizzy hair like me, this product is really fantastic. Just a couple of drops of oil and instead of making your hair feel greasy, it feels hydrated. In addition to CBD, it has Cinnamon bark, Lavender, Rose and Honeysuckle for all kinds of spiritual benefits.
