Why Weed Jewelry Is Trending in 2020
Gem(stoned): Why Weed Jewelry Is Trending in 2020
Curious about why weed jewelry is trending in 2020? We got your back. Take a look at why you need weed jewelry this year!
Cannabis is legal in 11 states for recreational and medical use. It’s also legal in 33 states for medical-only use.
As support for cannabis continues to grow, it makes sense that fashion would follow to reflect society's new standpoint. Weed jewelry isn't new, but it's set to be a huge trend in 2020.
The History of Weed Jewelry
In order to understand why weed jewelry is making a huge splash in 2020, we must first take a look at its past.
In the 1990s, cannabis fashion emerged as part of an American subculture. You couldn't go anywhere without seeing oversized white shirts with the green leaf centered on the front, or someone sporting a hemp choker.
As public opinion began to shift on cannabis, weed jewelry grew more popular and made its way into popular mall retail stores like Spencer's or Hot Topic. However, much of the weed jewelry sold in these stores was mass-produced and cheap.
Despite lacking in quality, demand remained high. People were eager to display their support for cannabis, or to make a controversial fashion statement for attention.
The Future of Weed Jewelry
While cannabis fashion isn't mainstream yet, it's already showing up on high-fashion walkways. Both celebrities and models are starting to appear on the covers of magazines wearing cannabis fashion and weed jewelry.
Over a decade ago, wearing cannabis-inspired clothing was risque. It made a bold statement on what your standpoint was and sometimes upset people.
Now, cannabis couture is gaining traction for its more positive connotations. Gone is the stigma of being classified as a Schedule I drug. Instead, cannabis increasingly makes the news for new studies highlighting its positive health effects.
Cannabis-inspired jewelry is also of a higher quality than what you would’ve once found in the early 1990s. Instead of cheap plastic rings and plain earrings, you can now find diamond-encrusted cannabis leaf necklaces.
There’s never been a wider selection of weed jewelry than now. The advance of technology has also helped to encourage supply and demand.
People don’t have to rely on going to a brick-and-mortar store to purchase an item any longer. Now, weed jewelry is little more than a click away on the internet. Then the item is delivered safe and discreetly as a package to your home.
