The origins of boutique strains can be traced back to the 60’s when growers began experimenting with “craft cannabis” cultivation, keeping a private stash of strains that were only meant for those closest in their inner circle.
More and more, we’re seeing the boutique strain scene increase in public availability and popularity. But that’s not to imply mass consumption, as boutiques are considered top-shelf, high-end strains that aren’t easily available.
Boutiques are known to pass all of the major tests as it relates to the strain’s look, smell, taste and high. Because they’re more difficult to acquire and cost more, boutique strains are meant for those connoisseurs with the insatiable need of cannabis luxury.
