A New Wave of Cannabis Entrepreneurs

Legalization has opened the flood gates to a new wave of cannabis entrepreneurship, as growers and manufacturers compete for new consumers who desire quality and consistency. Artisan cannabis producers are now using more mainstream branding and marketing strategies, similar to the fashion industry and other luxury goods, to promote cannabis brands and products.
These designer products broaden the appeal of cannabis, drawing in new consumers who reject the stoner image. Cannabis is now a lifestyle product similar to designer coffee or sinfully rich ice cream for these consumers. Here's a look at five of today's trendiest luxury cannabis products, suitable for giving as gifts – even as a gift to yourself.
Nove Luxury Chocolate
Nove Rasberry Bramble Chocolate
Nove Luxury Chocolate aims to fill a void in the market by supplying premium chocolate infused with the best quality cannabis.

Their chocolate line includes flavor profiles such as Rasberry Bramble, Island Coconut, and Glacier Mint. Nove can be found in Colorado dispensaries, and each bar retails for around $18.
