Treat Yourself: Classy Cannabis Must-Haves For Each Of The 5 Senses

One of the most beautiful things about cannabis its multi-sensory appeal: it's at once a visual, olfactory and tactile experience. That - in addition to the plant's lovely psychoactive effects, of course - is part of why smoking, vaping, or cooking with buds constitutes such an appealing ritual. For those who want to bring some of that full-body magic into all areas of life, here are five essentials to seek out.

Smell

We're more used to the idea of scented candles that mask, rather than embrace, the smell of cannabis; however, Malin+Goetz riff on the plant's distinctive aroma in this earth-friendly blend of beeswax, vegetable and soy waxes. Top notes of fresh lemon and orange, middle notes of fig and pepper, with a sophisticated base of oakmoss, sandalwood and amber-patchouli are sexy and provocative, much like cannabis - which is, notably, not one of the ingredients in this conversation piece. $52 from Malin+Goetz.

Touch

Organic, sweatshop-free, and surprisingly soft hemp sheets recall the finest Old World linens used in luxury green resorts, retreats, & spas. Some suggest first trying a hemp pillowcase to see if you dig the feel: while the fibre may take some getting used to, hemp bedding is the last word in both style and sustainability. A king-sized set retails for $559 from Rawganique.

Taste

Talk about a match made in heaven: the bracing, 140-proof absinthe with cannabis flavouring means you can now double-down on your green vices. Note: cannabis is only a flavour - this booze doesn't contain THC and won't get you high. Still this is a must-have for any civilized liquor cabinet. $20.12 from Uvinum.

Hearing

Even 46 years after its release, this Miles Davis classic remains one of the most aggressively weird, psychedelic, and beautiful albums ever recorded. Strap yourself in, shut your eyes, and push past your boundaries. It's a wild ride. If extremely jarring, complex 26-minute long jazz tracks aren't quite what you're feeling, maybe chill out with some Donovan instead. $38.97 from Amazon.

Sight

The pattern on this sheer curtain fabric is bamboo, not cannabis; however, the flora-themed drapery by Timorous Beasties is a subtle homage to your love of all things green and natural. Pair with green touches, like a candle or accent wall, for the full tropical-getaway effect. Bonus points: neither your mom, and your uptight business associates, can judge your pattern choices. £72.00 per metre from luxury fabric purveyors Timorous Beasties.

John Sinclair is one of the lesser-known people in cannabis culture, but he’s a very important figure, particularly for anti-prohibition activists. Sinclair is a native of Flint, Michigan, far from the hippie epicenters in California or the Warhol scene of the Big Apple. The scene in Michigan was grittier and more blue collar.
