LMCC's Gift Guide

11 Must-Have Stockist Stuffers

My favorite industry event of the year is the Luxury Meets Cannabis Conference (LMCC) Fall edition — although LMCC Spring 2023 is on the way (!) — not only for the opportunity to discover the latest and greatest prestige plant-based products and to hear unparalleled executive insight over the course of two-days, but also because it signals a shift in seasons.

The air in New York City is always perfectly crisp, a welcome reminder that winter and the holidays are essentially here. After experiencing over 40 exhibitors and 50 speakers at LMCC this past October, this editor’s sampling of visionary Beauty, Wellness, and Food & Beverage brands has something for everyone on your holiday gift-giving list — and year round.
