With the forthcoming legalization of weed, cannabis culture is spreading fast
Written by Diane Slawych
Cannabis culture took over a larger than usual section of the Green Living Show, with legalization to take place any time now. At least eight different booths at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto were devoted to cannabis this year, up from just one last year and a new Weedmaps Speaker Series covered a range of topics.
The various cannabis booths featured everything from skin care products to food, non-toxic products for your home, and information about medicinal marijuana. At the Mettrum booth you could purchase hemp creams and lip balms, and learn about the benefits of hemp seed oil for you hair and skin. (The oil has anti-inflammatory properties and is packed with antioxidants like Vitamin E and Carotene).

And if you're looking for a non-toxic wood finishing oil, there's Hemp Wood, an all-natural product, made from oxidized hemp oil, that releases no harmful vapours and can be used on all the wood items in your home and cottage.
The cannabis experience is even going upscale with one company (AHLOT) selling a Ritual Box. The wooden box with a modular design comes with everything but the flower - rolling tray, grinder, papers, matchbox and cotton filters, pre-roll case, glass storage jar, and hemp wick, beeswax candle, and sells for $120.
No doubt, this is just a prelude to the O’Cannabiz Conference & Expo happening later this month at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.
