The Straight Dope on the Canna-Business in 2019
In our Winter issue, FASHION editors rounded up the 100 people, products and experiences we think will blow up in 2019. It’s our inaugural Hot 100 Fuse List. From the workouts you’ll be doing, to the new designers and destinations you’ll see on your feed, this is your guide to being in the know this year. Prediction: By this time next year, everyone will be sick of headlines and articles filled with weed-based puns. But, until then, it’s high time you got the straight dope on the Canna-businesses that are fuelling the (legal) Reefer Madness.

The caveat with dosist is that it’s not available in Canada—which doubles as the company’s slogan—and it won’t be until its vape pens are legalized, along with all the other ways to consume cannabis.

The Other Stuff
You’re going to be hearing a lot about cannabis lifestyle and products that don’t look like they belong under your couch in the basement.
WDBX (pronounced Weedbox) offers curated design-focused products, from candles to grinders, to help you make the most of the cannabis lifestyle.
If Kinfolk were to start a cannabis brand, it would look a lot like Milkweed. You’ll find simple and elegantly crafted accessories that will look beautiful on the gram.
34: Sackville and Co.
Sackville & Co.’s star product is its gold grinder, but the brand promises to be more than a store. It’ll be a place to get information and a safe space to share stories and experiences. Because, let’s be honest, dope can make some people pretty chatty.
