Definition - What does Cannabis Jewlery mean?
Cannabis jewelry is also known as hemp jewelry and has been around for decades. As the name suggests, cannabis jewelry is made from cannabis twine or thread. With the use of this thread, a variety of jewelry such as wristbands, necklaces and earrings can be made with just the cannabis thread or by mixing it with other materials like beads.
MaximumYield explains Cannabis Jewlery
Twine is a strong thread that can be made from many plants including cotton, jute, wool, cannabis etc. Historically cannabis thread was used to make many products.
After a series of regulations on cannabis products from the early 1900s and ultimately the Marijuana Tax Act of 1922, affected the production and use of cannabis twine or thread and it was not until the mid 1990s that cannabis twine came back into prominence with an Adidas shoes campaign and countries slowly relaxing laws of cannabis twine use.
Traditionally, cannabis jewelry is made from cannabis twine by making knots using centuries-old weaving methods such as macrame. Now, cannabis jewelry has become a high fashion commodity. Starting out as a budget-friendly and hippie jewelry choice made of cannabis twine, cannabis jewelry production has a larger audience and a wider cost of production.
High end designers have started making gold and precious jewel studded jewelry of cannabis motifs. Motifs are made out of every part of the cannabis, plant ranging from the bud to leaves. As a result, cannabis jewelry is made from a wider range of products and features a wide variety of prices.
