Oscar nominees to receive pot-infused products in their swag bags

Each year, the top Oscar nominees are treated to swag bags that have included luxury trips, expensive beauty products and other fancy items, CNBC reported.

This year's pricey gift bag, which has been dubbed "Everyone Wins," will include Coda Signature premium cannabis-infused edibles, topicals, and concentrates. The company makes truffles and chocolate bars that edibles contain 10 milligrams of TCH, the psychoactive compound that causes people to get high.

The pricey bags, which are sent to nominees in the acting and directing categories, are reportedly valued at a whopping six figures, according to the report.

Are there other marijuana products in the bag?

The bag will feature High Beauty skincare products that also contain cannabis but are free of THC and CBD, according to the company's website.

And topping off the pot-related category of gifts, recipients will receive an annual VIP membership to MOTA, Los Angeles' first cannabis-friendly social club, the Independent reported.
