Barneys Is Adding a Cannabis Department

It wasn’t that long ago that acquiring marijuana felt like a perilous, intimidating task, even if it was legal. Dispensaries were often dingy, windowless spaces with product behind bulletproof glass and armed guards lending the unshakable feeling that things could escalate into a shoot-out at any moment. But now, there are beautiful Apple Store-esque storefronts like Med Men making weed procurement feel like a relatively normal and accessible part of everyday life — and Barneys is taking things to another level. Soon, you’ll be able to grab a bite at Fred’s, then pick up weed at the same time as your Prada bags and The Row sweaters. Well, sort of.

In late March, Barneys will become the first major retailer to open a cannabis department. Called The High End, the 300-square-foot shop-in-shop will be situated on the fifth floor of Barneys’s Beverly Hills flagship. The new space will carry upscale cannabis accessories and wellness products containing CBD; as for actual THC-containing cannabis, Barneys can’t technically sell you that because it’s not a dispensary. However, through an exclusive partnership with fashion-adjacent cannabis company Beboe (The New York Times called it the “Hermes of Marijuana”) and its industry-beloved tattoo artist co-founder Scott Campbell, the shop will include an exclusive silver limited-edition vaporizer pen with a strain developed especially for The High End, along with a selection of the brand’s pastilles. Shoppers can learn about the products from on-site Beboe representatives and then order them through a white-glove local delivery service.
