Whether it’s $3,600 marijuana cigar or a $2,000 marijuana subscription box, a new luxury marijuana niche market is evolving for big spenders. A newly released study revealed that upscale marijuana consumers do exist, and that 65% have combined household incomes of at least $75,000.
The study also found that roughly 84% of upscale marijuana lovers have full-time jobs, reports Forbes.
The AuBox service offers two types of high-end subscription boxes. Depending on the status of marijuana in your state, you may be able to purchase THC products and CBD products. Former Miss Iowa, Jessica VerSteeg, founded AuBox. For now though, AuBox is only available in the San Francisco area. She considers AuBox to be the “gold standard in luxury marijuana,” as “Au” is the chemical symbol for gold.
The AuBox service allows men and women to order gender specific boxes. Some product options include Dark Heart Alchemy vapes, Pot-O-Coffee and 24-carat gold rolling papers. A single month’s trial of the service is $150.
ClubM is another high-end marijuana subscription service. One product, the M1K, sells for $1,000 but features big brands like True Humboldt and LolaLola Cannabis. Packages from ClubM are delivered in humidors or leather purses and include flower, vape items, accessories and edibles. They have a more expensive box too: the M2Box, which sells for $2,000.
ClubM co-founder, Chris Husong said, “This isn’t just a bigger box. This is a box with hyper-premium quality product. Frankly, it’s product most people can’t afford but ClubM members are clamoring for it.” ClubM membership is invitation only, and runs about $97 per month.
A Seattle dispensary recently sold a marijuana cigar for $3,600. The giant cigar contained 28 grams of marijuana, seven grams of oil, and took nearly six weeks to cure.
Luxury marijuana businesses are popping up throughout the U.S. fill the demand for high-end products and services for people seeking to live the high life.
