American Eagle to Sell CBD Products

Teen clothing and accessories retailer American Eagle Outfitters is set to sell cannabidiol-infused products later this year through a partnership with the THC and CBD product lines company Green Growth Brands Inc.

In a press released published on Thursday, Green Growth Brands revealed it will be exclusively developing and supplying American Eagle with CBD-infused personal-care products. This includes lotions, muscle balms, and other beauty products. The release also announced that the products will be sold at nearly 500 American Eagle stores starting October.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with American Eagle, a leader in the specialty retail space,” expressed Peter Horvath, the CEO of Green Growth Brands. “GGB provided the expertise necessary to develop the product formulations and packaging to create a really special line of products.”

The recent partnership had officially marked American Eagle to be the third major wholesale partner of Green Growth Brands Inc. to date. Just a month ago, Abercrombie & Fitch, also a leading teen clothing and accessories retailer and a rival of American Eagle, signed the same deal with GGB. This enables Abercrombie to sell different CBD-infused products in more than 160 of its more than 250 stores. Earlier this year, footwear and accessories retailer DSW also sealed an agreement with GGB.

Last December, President Trump signed into law the farm bill, which included a provision legalizing hemp. This has led to the visible and fast boom of the CBD industry. In fact, various beauty line giants, such as LVMH’s Sephora and ULTA Beauty Inc. have already immersed in the market for cannabis-based personal care products.

Aside from these, luxury department store chain Barney’s, along with other retailers, such as GNC, Rite Aid, and Vitamin Shoppe, has also entered the cannabis market, selling different CBD products in some of their stores across the states.

“American Eagle’s image is about positive messaging and wellness, so it’s not shocking that they would have CBD-infused products,” said Jessica Ramirez, Jane Hali & Associates analyst.

“The products complement their brand and customers,” she added.

Just this year, American Eagle has experienced a 14% drop in their shares due to an unsatisfactory profit forecast in March.

On the other hand, cannabis company Green Growth Brands Inc. continues to expand its reach with its recent acquisition and partnership deal with the U.S. cannabis company Moxie.

“As a ‘360 degree’ cannabis company, we expect to bring an expertise to each segment of the combined business: cannabis dispensaries, vertically-integrated and wholesale CBD, and wholesale cannabis consumer products,” CEO Horvath said in a separate release.

Here’s What to Expect at a Cannabis-Themed Wedding

Cannabis-Themed Wedding

The legalization of marijuana in many parts of the world including Canada and some states in the US gives many people the opportunity to incorporate the plant into many aspects of their lives. As a matter of fact, many individuals include cannabis in celebrations of important days such as Christmas, birthdays and even the observation of the Lent Season.

Last October 27, 2019, the Toronto Cannabis Wedding Expo was held and through this, we had a chance to glimpse of what a wedding of this kind will look like. Whether you are a bride or groom to be or simply a guest of one, below are some things that were observed from this unique wedding.

Cannabis-Themed Wedding- What to Expect

Gift Bags Full of Cannabis Products

Weddings would never be complete without a basket of goodie bags to give away. With numerous CBD products on the market, it’s not at all difficult to streamline your gift items to the people who’ll be attending your ceremony and reception. From beauty items to CBD oil edibles, there are now tons of options you can choose from.

You can even customize giveaways depending on the personality and preferences of your recipient. Friends who are bookworms can receive cannabis-related books, while those who love music can get marijuana-inspired records. This way, you can make sure they know that their presence and support on your day is well-appreciated.

Cannabis-Themed Reception

Not everyone will be open to having marijuana in their respective venues. Although your state or region might uphold the legalization laws in place, not every venue will be as welcoming. Since regulations and restrictions on this plant are still being navigated, it might be best to choose a privately-owned venue. Better yet, get recommendations from your local dispensary. They might have partners who have contacts who can offer you a venue you might like.

Cannabis-Themed Wedding

With a cannabis-friendly venue, you can expect your reception site to decorated with cannabis-related décor. From earth-toned furnishings to ornamental plants to uphold the natural characteristic of marijuana, the reception will definitely be referring to the plant.

While weddings typically have an open bar until the wee hours of the morning, a cannabis-themed wedding entails having a full-blown budbar or a mini dispensary of sorts. Since these substances have intoxicating side effects, you may be asked to choose between serving alcohol and this plant.

Compared to alcohol, CBD products and cannabis-infused goodies may be seen as the better choice. Not only do these provide a laid-back and relaxing sensation, but these also provide a more communal experience which like-minded individuals can share with one another.

Before you set up your bar, it is important to keep in mind that THC and alcohol don’t mix well. Because of this, you might need to choose between marijuana or alcohol, or you can opt for a CBD reception complete with alcohol.

A Whole Lot of Fun

Apart from medical use, marijuana is also used for recreational purposes. Elevated towards a more sophisticated setting, like-minded individuals will surely have the time of their lives during this special day. Keep the celebrations going by sharing with other guests and by trying the different strains, that is, under the watchful eye and guidance of the event’s budtender.

Conclusion

Now that you know what you can expect from a wedding of this kind, you are surely excited about attending the ceremony of your plant enthusiast friends. Better yet, why not go ahead and plan your dream wedding by incorporating marijuana into the mix? This way you are sure that you, your partner and your friends will be able to celebrate the occasion complete with the goodness of this plant.

Celebrating the Holidays with a Cannabis Christmas Calendar

Those who celebrate Christmas are likely to be excited for this occasion as it is a festive time for people to get together. If you celebrate Christmas, you surely have your own traditions for the upcoming holiday. Whether you are into extravagant festivities or you are contented with an intimate get-together with friends and family on Christmas Eve, you might want to consider getting a cannabis advent calendar. Not familiar with them? Read on to find out more.

What is a Cannabis Christmas Advent Calendar?

Advent calendars cover the days leading up to Christmas, starting from December 1 to December 24. These have flaps on each day, which can contain an image related to the holiday, small treats or trinkets. A cannabis advent calendar follows the same concept, except that you can expect to get marijuana-infused items for each day.

MMJ patients and enthusiasts alike will definitely enjoy getting a small marijuana surprise for every day up to Christmas eve. If you are interested in having one for the upcoming celebrations, here are some cannabis items you can include.

Plain Ol’ Flowers and Buds

Perhaps one of the most basic things you can stash into your calendar is a bunch of dried marijuana. You can also roll some joints or buy pre-rolled ones because what’s better than waking up to find a spliff waiting for you every day? This can definitely complete the day of every marijuana lover.

To spice things up, you can even place different strains of cannabis for each day, giving you the chance to try out different varieties every day! There are 779 strains or probably more out there, so you will definitely find the experience of picking the best ones exciting.

CBD Products

If you are looking to give some cannabidiol-infused products a try, then this is a great opportunity for you. Think of items that you would want to check out. Perhaps you have been wanting to see if that cannabis shampoo can help your hair get that healthy glow. You might also be curious about the effects of CBD topicals for your skin.

Take this holiday season as a chance to try out these products. With the medicinal effects of the cannabinoid, you can get positive outcomes with these items, depending on different factors that can vary the effects of the cannabinoid on your body.

You can choose from a lot of different products such as topicals (creams, lotions), oils, pills and even vape pens.

Small Treats

Aside from the items mentioned above, you can also buy edibles. These are easy and fun to consume, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Many companies have released their own line of cannabis-infused candies, from chocolates to gummy bears.

Those who are into baking might want to make some treats themselves. If you are concerned about complicated recipes, worry not because these are definitely easy to make. You just need the usual ingredients for, say, brownies combined with decarboxylated cannabis buds. Just keep in mind that cannabinoids and terpenes can evaporate so, cooking using the right temperature is vital.

With marijuana-filled advent calendars, you can definitely make your December much more exciting. What’s better is that these marijuana-filled calendars are also perfect as gifts. Just keep in mind that there are states that enforce strict rules against the plant, so make sure to verify if the receiver lives in a state in which such products are legal. Moreover, see to it that you keep these items out of the hands of minors as legal states only allow adults to handle such products.

Because they are experts, you can rest assured that you can ask them anything about their offerings.
