A company unveils a new marijuana infused skincare line.
A company in Denver is hopping on the pot bandwagon in an unusual way. The business has decided to place cannabis flower oil in their body sprays, lip balms and skin creams.
The oil contains THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. A company official states “Everything is for the skin. It's not meant to be inebriating in any way. It's added in there to enhance the properties of the other ingredients.”
For the time being, the marijuana skin care products are only available to medical marijuana patients, as retail stores specializing in cannabis items won’t be permitted to open until January of 2014.
Both Colorado and Washington passed laws which make marijuana smoking legal. Many residents believe that the law will boost tourism, allowing pot smokers to openly indulge.
A volunteer at Seattle’s pot celebration festival dubbed ‘Hempfest’ states “We're anticipating there will be more people. Many people who smoke pot aren't public about it, so people may feel freer coming here.”
