Although marijuana has been a staple in the lives of millions of Americans for decades, it has only recently been legalized in many states.
With the recreational legalization has come the opportunity for people to turn their love or medical need for cannabis into a hobby that they can flaunt - and a luxury market is rising to meet that demand.
With Flora Nero, cannabis use has never looked so classy, and you'll want to check out these products to elevate your experience.
Cannabis Accessories You Can Show Off
Cannabis, weed, marijuana, MJ - the list of what people call it goes on endlessly. One thing that all recreational users have in common however is a fondness for the non-addictive chill that consuming it can bring.
But gone are the days of making bongs out of coke bottles and hiding joints under your mattress.
Now, you can smoke weed and look sleek - and Flora Nero is helping you with your swagger.

- a statement from Marc Thorpe, Creative Director of Flora Nero
Other_Worldly speaks to a holistic collective consciousness we share as a species. Universal geometries, interlocking volumes, and dimensional planes communicate this sacred language shared amongst the stars.
Inspired by the mid-century modern geometric patterns and textures of the '50's mixed with the UFO fancies of the '60's, the new collection has been dubbed "Other_Worldly" and playfully combines designs by Marc Thorpe in aluminum, wood, and hand-blown glass for that high-life experience you deserve.
Weed as a Luxe Product in the Public Space
Weed as a publicly accepted pastime is gaining popularity in recent years, and the concept of marijuana as a high-life hobby (pardon the pun) has created a luxury market only rivaled by alcohol and cigars.
But it's only recreationally legalized in certain states, which include:
- Washington, D.C.
- New Jersey
- New York
- New Mexico
- Rhode Island
For residents of these states, the idea of marijuana as a recreational indulgence is quickly gaining ground, and because it offers an intoxication that is safer than alcohol or other hard drugs, the public health sector has stayed away from issuing too many guidelines around its usage.
With companies like Flora Nero and others rising to offer a luxury experience for cannabis users, it's clear that the whole idea of marijuana as being a teenager's drug is evolving, and people across multiple age groups and economic backgrounds are embracing it as the new "whisky on the rocks" to turn an evening into a mellow, classy experience.
