In the wonderful new world of fully legal cannabis, there's so much more to do than smoke. And we're not just talking about vapes and cannabis wine.
The non-psychoactive and healing properties of CBD make that particular cannabinoid ripe for consumption in luxury products that now target an audience outside your typical bong-ripper—think upwardly mobile and wellness-minded women and men looking to elevate their social lives and pamper themselves. And spas and skincare pros are catching on—check out the best CBD-infused face and body treatments currently offered in the Bay Area.
