Barneys’ High-End Head Shop Hopes To Be The Future Of Cannabis-Related Retail

The 300-square-foot space opened March 21 in Los Angeles

The new high-end head-shop concept that opened inside Barneys New York’s Beverly Hills flagship last month is about more than $950 blown-glass bongs, $1,575 herb grinders and a concierge to help you order THC-containing vaporizer pens and pastilles for home delivery. It’s a high-profile harbinger of where cannabis-related retail — and most likely the luxury department store space — is headed in the era of legal marijuana.

The 300-square-foot space that opened March 21 on the fifth floor of the department store at 9570 Wilshire Blvd. — it’s dubbed the High End — is elegantly appointed and stocked with a range of upscale smoking accessories such as hand-crafted stash jars from Siemon & Salazar; imported French rolling papers by Devambez (a gift set, complete with matchbooks, rolling tray and vermeil joint-packing tamper, will set you back a cool $8,850); functional jewelry (necklaces from Good Art Hlywd that double as vape-pen lanyards and a lip-shaped Carole Shashona ring that converts into a stylish joint holder); hemp-derived CBD beauty and wellness products; and an assortment of vintage Hermès and Gucci ashtrays.

Most notably, it also features an on-site representative from Beboe, the Los Angeles-based luxury-level cannabis brand and partner on the project. That person will explain the company’s products to the canna-curious and help him or her place an order for home delivery. (And no, you can’t use your Barneys credit card — we made sure to ask — because the orders are actually placed through a third-party delivery service called Emjay, which launched in L.A. with the Barneys/Beboe partnership.)
