When
asked
about
the
quality
of
the
products,
as
compared
to
other
high-end
lotions
Barney’s
stocks,
Burke
said
the
products
were
just
as
finely
made
as
any
other
of
their
luxury
lines.

An
entire
wing
had
been
created
for
The
High
End
shop
on
the
top
floor
of
the
building.
Inside,
savvy
and
well-heeled
cannabis
partakers
could
purchase
fine
smoking
accessories,
sitting
under
glass
cases,
surrounding
by
marble
walls
and
gilded
pedestals.

Fine
bone
china
vintage
ashtrays
from
Hermes
Paris,
with
one
of
its
signature
designs,
could
be
had
for
about
$700
a
pop.

When
asked
how
the
historic
design
house,
Hermes,
felt
about
its
ashtrays
being
for
sale
in
such
a
space,
Burke
replied,
“They
are
happy
to
be
selling
ashtrays
again.”

Under
another
glass
case,
rolling
papers
are
carefully
laid
out
from
French
company,
Devambez,
made
exclusively
with
hemp
grown
in
the
South
of
France.
Burke
added
that
if
you
haven’t
smoked
a
joint
rolled
in
a
Devambez,
you
just
have
no
idea
what
the
fuss
is
all
about.

Los
Angeles
silversmith,
Josh
Warner.

comes
with
a
price
tag
of
$1,474.

Longtime
iconic
New
York
jeweler,
Carole
Shashona,
has
joined
the
healing
trend,
and
now
includes
a
line
of
cannabis
leaf
adorned
fine
jewelry
for
the
shop.

There’s
glass
art
via
beautiful
bongs

Caleb
Siemon,

&
Salazar,

Italy,

California;

boxes
