Sundae School Unveils Cannabis Goods with Pharma-Themed Event

Sundae School

Sundae School recently launched its new cannabis line with a pharmacy-themed event in New York City last August 25, 2019. The lifestyle brand is slated to unveil the full collection later this September.

Sundae School’s inaugural cannabis line focuses on providing enthusiasts and fellow enthusiasts with high fashion smokewear, which is usually worn when smoking marijuana. The launch was reportedly done in partnership with the Boiler Room, an independent music platform and cultural curator. Boiler Room, alongside IFFY FM, transformed Schimanski into an apothecary where guests and customers can freely choose their ‘medicine’ of choice for the night, says Paper Mag.

To complete the look and feel of the event, bartenders were dressed in lab coats. Performers who graced the stage include Amrit, Bambii, DJ Marauder, DJ Miles, Goldlink, Gvijin, Odalys, Proper Edakit, and Wale.

Besides clothing and accessories, Sundae School also showcased some of their finest offerings. These include cannabis accessories and limited-edition CBD smokes, reports Paper Mag.

The theme of the pop-up installation was “The Sundae Pharmacy,” an ode to the traditional pharmacies which are found only in South Korea.

Humble Beginnings

Cannabis lifestyle and smokewear brand are founded by two best friends, namely Dae Lim and Mia Park. Both of the duo both became aware of marijuana in their respective boarding schools when they immigrated from South Korea to the United States at the age of 13.

Having officially launched their company on April 20, 2017, the co-founders now have an impressive list of apparel under their belt. The first and second collections featured were named “Chapter 1: Genesis” and “Chapter 2: When Tigers Used to Smoke.” These collections featured a wide range of clothing, from tees, hoodies, patches, hats, and jackets. The third and fourth collections were named “Chapter 3: Weed Scholar” and “Chapter 4: The Green Rush.”

While the brand initially focused on smokewear, it was able to venture to cannabis operations with the help of Flow Kana, states Bloomberg.

For their latest venture, the duo is set to release a collection of pre-rolled joints along with other limited-edition offerings. However, the items will only be available at a number of partner California dispensaries. The marijuana collection will launch in mid-September, notes Forbes.

The three cannabis strains expected to take center stage include Eureaka (sativa), Nightcap (indica), and Kickback (CBD). According to Forbes, each of these three strains was done in partnership with Chantel Lee. Pre-rolled joints will be available in tins of eight called “Bullets” or as singles.

First-Ever Cannabis Café to be Launched in West Hollywood

Cannabis Café in West Hollywood

The United States’ very first cannabis café is slated to debut this month.  The café recently obtained a business license, permitting customers to consume the plant right within the premises of the establishment. This includes edibles, drinkables and smoking options.

California is a legal marijuana state, which means that residents can consumer recreational and medical products within its premises. This is why the state has a program in which it grants marijuana-related businesses permits and licenses.

Officially called Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café, the establishment offers a farm-to-table selection for its customers. This model allows consumers to order food and drinks, which will be prepared using freshly picked ingredients, particularly marijuana components.

Chef Andrea Drummer designed the menu to compliment the intensified senses brought about by the plant. While the list of available dishes can change, some of the possible items on the menu include burrata, grilled peach salad, and fried chicken sandwich.

The establishment will also offer cannabis-infused beverages. Note that these drinks will be non-alcoholic.

The café offers a “welcoming and stylish” place for enthusiasts and explorers to hang out and get their hands on cannabis products, food and drinks. As smoking can be involved, the place is also a well-ventilated, allowing for a much comfortable experience.

While cannabis enthusiasts and first-timers visit the business, its owners also target cannabis tourists. These types of tourists are those visiting California from states without legal recreational and even medical cannabis. By hanging out of the café, tourists can avoid being “kicked out of their hotels” when they partake.

One of the unique services offered by Lowell’s is its “tableside flower service” which provides customers with a cannabis expert, akin to a wine sommelier. The host will talk guests through a variety of selections, allowing them to choose the best cannabis strains and options the café has to offer.

Aside from dishes made by Chef Drummer, the place will also feature pre-made edibles on its retail counter.

Lowell Farms is a known cannabis product brand in California. It is also burrata as the state’s top grower, with partnerships with family-owned grow sites in Cali.

Meanwhile, more than 300 businesses sent in their applications for West Hollywood’s special on-premise consumption permit. However, the city has only granted a mere 8 companies as of this writing. Aside from a café, other establishments granted with the license include soon-to-open spas, virtual reality gaming shop, and adult sellers.

US-Restaurants that Serve CBD Food and Drinks

Because of the huge demand for anything cannabidiol or CBD, businesses are also getting into the fun by mixing this compound with their products. For instance, there are restaurants that create meals with CBD ingredient to attract more people into their premises.

In the US, more and more states legalize the use of marijuana and its active compounds like CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. In case you need a dose of cannabidiol, here are some restaurants that you can visit.

by CHLOE

A well-known vegan restaurant. This place is a vegan wonderland because all their recipes are made from organic ingredients and are 100% vegan. By Chloe takes pride in their luscious menu, from salads, snacks, sandwiches and burgers, pasta, breakfast meals and of course, desserts.

Their CBD treats include chocolate leafy brownies, Ooey Cinnamoney roll, Chocolatey Cookey GF, Salty Peanutty Buttery Piey and more. The brand introduced a line called FEELZ, which sells its own collection of CBD-infused sweets. Check out FEELZ by Chloe to see more desserts they sell.

Zenbarn

Zenbarn offers a healthier set of meals to fill your tummy. They have snacks for sharing, cocktails, noodles, vegan bowls, drinks and more. This place has become a gem for its Salad infused with CBD dressing. A perfect combination of greens and natural ingredients that are not only good for the body but also tasteful.

If you are in the mood for a heavy snack, you might want to try the chicken wings in CBD garlic parmesan flavor. All the ingredients are gluten-free and you will love the combination of garlic and cannabidiol. Zenbarn also has CBD-infused burger or the ‘420 Burger’ with CBD aioli for that mild hint of cannabidiol.

Fuel

Looking for an extra boost? Philadelphia’s Fuel is not only healthy but also flavorful because of fruity smoothies. This restaurant infuses cannabidiol to its smoothies that taste like a normal one but makes one feel relaxed and pain-free. Their CBD Menu consists of CBD Berry Dream which has strawberry, Mango, Apple, and Banana; CBD Green Dream which has Kale, Spinach, Honey, Pineapple and Ginger; and CBD Orange Dream which has Non-Fat Yogurt, Banana, French Vanilla Shot and OJ.

In case you have a busy schedule and you don’t have time to cook, you can drop by at Fuel and get your cannabidiol fix.

The Breslin

A New York City hotel called Ace Hotel serves CBD-infused brownies at its lobby. The Breslin added the new line of cannabidiol-infused pastries and cocktails to its menu. The restaurant uses Rosebud CBD oil as its main ingredient for brownies and cocktails.

The pastries are the best-sellers to the Breslin, especially the brownies. Before, The Breslin allowed RSVPs but eventually turn it down due to busy scheduling and high demand. The cocktails are also a game-changer which is a rendition of a French drink that has Rosebud CBD oil. All in all, this place is perfect for early night drinks and dessert.

Bubby’s

Try coffee with a twist that is CBD at one of New York’s famous eatery, Bubby’s. The restaurant serves coffee with an added CBD sweetener for that relaxing treat. It is both refreshing and energy-boosting every sip. Try the coffee with their house specials Bacon, Mac N Cheese, and Fluffy pancakes.

If you’re in the mood for good food, drinks, and desserts, these are the restaurants you can check out for that extra special ingredient that is CBD. Remember to check the dosage or strength to avoid any side effects like upset stomach and nausea. Although CBD oil benefits are guaranteed, it’s also important to know how much you can tolerate.

High and Wealthy: Top 8 Richest People Who Have Used Marijuana

Richest Cannabis Users

For years, the word “rich” carries a broad range of possible connotations – classy, refined, eloquent, regal … and high?

Gone were the days when the wealthy are boxed within the “prim and proper” notion. Today, the newer generations of the top 1% are more than willing to break the strict expectations and experience a different dose of high and wildness.

From business tycoons, politicians, to award-winning artists, here are 8 of the richest cannabis users.

Get to know them:

  • George Zimmer

Perhaps, it is safe to say that almost every guy has heard the name “George Zimmer” before. He is, after all, the founder and former CEO of the popular clothing chain, Men’s Warehouse. Although Zimmer was fired as executive chairman in 2013 due to his “unwillingness to hand over the reins,” the entrepreneur remains to be one of the biggest fish in the cannabis pond.

In fact, in 2010, Zimmer has openly showcased his support for the legalization of cannabis by donating a staggering $70, 500 to support the Proposition 19 in California.

Five years later, in an interview with CNBC, the former CEO said he has been regularly smoking marijuana for half a century already. When asked about his stand about the marijuana prohibition, Zimmer is quick to respond, saying: “This is the biggest con that has been perpetrated on this country in the last century.”

  • Ted Turner

No one can debunk the unpleasant stereotypes linked to marijuana users more than the American billionaire Ted Turner. Not only is he famous for founding the first 24-hour news network, CNN, but he is also regarded as America’s second-largest individual landowner and a self-made billionaire. In 2014, Forbes estimated Ted Turner’s net worth at $2.2 billion. Today, Turner continues to rise as one of the top media tycoons in the country.

For years, Ted Turner has been rumored to have been a marijuana user. Some sources even claimed he had been caught growing marijuana in his dorm room at school. Although the mega-mogul refused to clarify the rumors, his vocal support for the legalization of cannabis and his consistent role as a sponsor of the Kentucky Hemp Museum already seem to confirm the report.

  • Richard Branson

Richard Branson is not the kind to back out from anything – even from admitting he smokes marijuana. In fact, in an interview with GQ magazine, the founder of the Virgin empire had admitted he tried using cocaine, ecstasy, Viagra, and marijuana.

“I haven’t tried skunk, I have smoked cannabis though. I mean, I went with my son on his gap year, for God’s sake. We learned to surf and had some nights where we laughed our heads off for eight hours,” the multi-millionaire airline boss told Piers Morgan.

As a bonus, the British entrepreneur also said that the first person to teach him how to roll a joint is none other than Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

For years, Branson has been one of the most devoted supporters of the legalization of marijuana and even said he’d put in on sale if it were to become legal.

  • Hugh Hefner

No one lives the “American Dream” more accurately than Hugh Hefner. From astounding mansions, fanciful lifestyle, dream girls, to regular puffing of cannabis – this magazine tycoon seems to has it all. Despite his death in 2017, the founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine remains to be one of the biggest faces of celebrity cannabis users.

“I don’t think there’s any question that marijuana should be legalized because to not legalize it, we’re paying the same price we paid for prohibition,” he told Fox News on 2010 when asked about his stand on the legalization of the plant. “In other words, it is a medical concern and it should be handled that way.”

In a book called High in America: The True Story Behind NORML and the Politics of Marijuana, Hefner shared how marijuana made him see sex in a different light. “Smoking helped put me in touch with the realm of the senses. I discovered a whole other dimension to sex. I discovered the difference between fucking and making love,” the Playboy magnate told Patrick Anderson.

  • Michael Bloomberg

Nothing tops Michael Bloomberg when it comes to being the face of success. Not only is he the co-founder and CEO of the financial, software, data, and media giant, Bloomberg L.P, but he also became a three-term Mayor of New York City. Forbes estimated his net worth to be a stunning $55B and was even hailed as the 9th richest people in the world.

In 2001, Bloomberg was asked by New York Magazine whether he had ever tried marijuana, in which he responded with the iconic line: “You bet I did. And I enjoyed it.”

He then later came to regret making the comment when the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws Foundation unveiled a $500,000 ad campaign featuring his face alongside the quote.

“In terms of, I had, certainly when I was younger, as I suppose most people in my generation, experimented,” he told during a news conference. “I never lie, so if somebody asked me a question, I told them. Do I, in retrospect, wish I didn’t say it that day so they couldn’t quote it? Of course.”

However, despite his experience with the plant, Bloomberg was not fond of decriminalizing marijuana. In 2013, he even called medical marijuana “one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.”

  • Bill Gates

The American business magnate and co-founder of Microsoft isn’t just commendable for having the world’s largest private charitable foundation but also for his vocal support for the legalization of marijuana13 in his home state of Washington.

Although the Microsoft’s mogul has been mum on whether he had used to smoke cannabis, his 1994 interview with Playboy seem to suggest a possible answer. During the said interview, Gates was asked if he had ever taken drugs, particularly LCD. He responded by saying: “My errant youth ended a long time ago.”

When asked to further his answer, the American entrepreneur only said: “That means there were things I did under the age of 25 that I ended up not doing subsequently.”

Bill Gates now stands as the top 2 richest individuals in the world, according to Forbes.

  • George Soros

Aside from his vocal support for democratic ideals and causes, the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros is also a faithful supporter of the legalization of marijuana. In fact, since 1984, he has been injecting more than $80 million of his money to various alliances and networks for the advancement of the legalization of marijuana.

Although he said he finds no use for drugs, the prominent international investor admitted he once tried smoking cannabis.

“I tried marijuana and enjoyed it, but it did not become a habit and I have not tasted it in many years,” Soros said in an interview.

As a well-known humanitarian, George Soros believed that the marijuana laws are doing more harm to people than good.

“The criminalization of marijuana did not prevent marijuana from becoming the most widely used illegal substance in the United States and many other countries. But it did result in extensive costs and negative consequences,” he asserted.

  • Steve Jobs

Perhaps, we can all agree that no other CEO could top the grand stature of Steve Jobs when it comes to the public realm. After all, who would forget the genius mind behind the Apple gadgets? In 2010, he was hailed by Forbes to be the 17th most powerful person. And even when he succumbed to cancer in 2011, he was still regarded as one of the leading pioneers of the microcomputer revolution.

Prior to his death, Jobs’ involvement in recreational drug use is not a secret to the public. In fact, he was even able to give a talk about his drug experiences, particularly with LSD and marijuana. During the interview, the Apple Co-Founder expressed that his use of LSD was one of the “two or three most important things” he ever did in his life. He also said he and his friends used to smoke marijuana and eat pot brownies for some time before. For Jobs, the reason behind his marijuana usage stems from the relaxing effect the plant provides, along with its creative significances.

Today, Steve Job’s legacy continues to affect the computer, wireless, and even cannabis industries.

After his death, Daniel Kottke, an old friend of Jobs’ told CNN that Jobs’ experiments with drugs stopped with the dawn of his company, Apple.

“Once Apple started, Steve was really focused with all of his energy on making Apple successful… and he didn’t need psychedelics for that,” he explained.

Conclusion:

Surely, the “high” and wealthy will always have their own ways to stay on top. From CEOs, politicians, sports personalities, to celebrities, there always comes a broad list of rich people who find leisure in the company of the green plant.

Who among these people do you fancy sharing a joint with?
