Cannabis Through a Wine Lens

The two cultivated commodities might have more in common than you think. In 2012, Washington and Colorado became the first two U.S. states to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Oregon followed suit in 2014. Canada has committed to legalizing canna­bis by 2018. Today, for a majority of the Pacific Northwest, cannabis is available to adults 21 and over for recreational use - and for the rest of the region, all it takes to reach it is a quick visit to the state next door. In the newly established legal market, canna­bis has not only shaken off outdated stereotypes, it has simultaneously begun to take its rightful place as a craft product. Locally and ethically grown, beautifully packaged and openly and thoughtfully consumed, today's cannabis is an epicurean commodity, earning the right to be treated as such. Check out the rest of the feature, where Trove Cannabis is mentioned as a best Northwest cannabis shop to visit in Bellingham, here.
