Cannaboutique (cannabis + boutique)

A “cannaboutique” (cannabis + boutique) is a name for a marijuana shop. “Cannaboutique” was cited on Twitter on February 20, 2014. “Drove past a Cannaboutique today in Denver. New phrase to me” was cited on Twitter on January 16, 2015.
Caitlin Murphy, the marketing director of Colorado’s Emerald Fields, popularized the term in 2015.
