Barneys New York announced it will open a line of marijuana shops in California.
Weed smokers looking for high-end marijuana accessories will soon have a new shop to frequent as upscale retailer Barneys New York is set to open a line of “cannabis lifestyle” stores in California.
The stores, called The High End, will exist within existing Barneys locations, the company said in an announcement Monday. The first store is planned to open in March in the Beverly Hills Barneys, and the company intends to expand to concept to other locations.
Barneys is the first major retailer – and certainly the swankiest – to foray into the world of marijuana. Barneys will partner with Beboe, a luxe cannabis company, for the shops.
Among the offerings will be 24-carat gold rolling papers from , custom-made glass pipes from glassblower Caleb Siemon and a new strain of cannabis cultivated by Beboe and California weed brand Sherbinskis.
“Barneys New York has always been at the forefront of shifts in culture and lifestyle, and cannabis is no exception,” Daniella Vitale, chief executive officer and president of Barneys, said in a press release.
The High End will also sell marijuana accessories, like weed grinder necklaces and sterling silver pastille dispensers, and CBD-infused beauty products.
Some of the items, like the CBD products, will also be available online.
“I’m so thrilled that cannabis culture has come so far that it can exist and feel perfectly at home in such a prestigious context as Barneys New York,” Scott Campbell, co-founder of Beboe said in a statement.
