Jimi’s Hash Honey Featured in New York Post
Hemp dog chews, cannabis bath soaks and purple haze peanut butter are just a few of the wacky wares on display at the upcoming Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo at the Jacob Javits Center next week.
When the bizarre three-day bazaar opens on June 15, thousands are expected to gather to explore pot-related products; attend seminars titled “Now you sell it, now they can sue”; and listen to a discussion of the benefits of THC by a panel that includes former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon and other former pro athletes.
The bulk of the items on display will contain hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant that does not contain the psychoactive component THC — the chemical that gets you high.
Here are a few items that will be on display:
Renecann Anti-Aging Day & Night Cream
New Jersey spawned CBD For Life’s nine-product beauty and wellness line that includes eye serum, lip balm and body massage cream. Its face cream is made from 99 percent pure cannabidiol extract derived from the stems and stalks of industrial hemp and has a THC level under 0.3 percent. So don’t expect too strong a buzz. Products — ranging in price from $8.99 to $34.99 — will be on sale at the show.
Jimi’s Hash Honey
Los Angeles-based Purple Haze properties is a cannabis lifestyle brand that represents celebrities and their estates who are interested in getting into the pot business. The company features a line of Jimi Hendrix-inspired products that include Jimi’s Medicated Macaroons, Kale chips with Canna oil and Wild Thing energy drink. It’s honeybed hash honey is infused with hashish (the real thing) and retails for $25 for two grams.
Canchew’s cool mint gum
HempMeds produces a wide range of products from shampoo to chewing gum. The San Diego-based company’s Canchew hemp-oil gum is non-habit-forming, won’t get you high but is rich in heart-healthy Omega 3s. It sells for $60 for a package of 32.
Affogato makes cannabis-infused chocolate
Founded in 2010, Colorado-based Incredibles is known for hand-crafted, cannabis-infused chocolate with unique flavors: Peanut Butter Buddha, Dark Chocolate Roasted Habaneros and Raspberries, and Black Cherry CBD (Cannabidiol — it won’t get you high but has medicinal properties). The goodies won’t be for sale at the convention, but retail for between $12 and $25 depending on potency.
