A burgeoning group of Northwest-based companies are giving the formally taboo topic of marijuana a makeover. Interior designer-turned-fashion maven April Pride of Van der Pop recently debuted a collection of stylish Italian leather stash bags thoughtfully lined with a waterproof zipper to conceal odors.
Pride and others like her are infusing their cannabis-forward offerings with a focus on design that, in some ways, has made the green industry more approachable. And then, of course, there is the beauty industry's latest "it ingredient," CBD, a cannabis-based compound that is shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits in pre-clinical studies without psychoactive side effects.
As the popularity of these products continues to grow, we have rounded up some of our favorite cannabis accessories and beauty products made right here in the Pacific Northwest.
