It seems that the rich and famous always have their hands in a variety of projects. Whether it’s an actor putting out his first musical album or a chef designing their own line of eyewear, it’s not uncommon to see people getting into multiple industries. Nowhere is this truer than in the cannabis world, where celebrities are getting in on some of the action. Check out a few of the more well-known celebrity cannabis brands but in all honesty, none of these will probably come as a surprise. Just imagine who you think would be most likely to create their own weed? Yup, you probably guessed right.

Unless you live under a rock, you’re not shocked that Snoop Dogg is a big fan of weed. So much so that he launched his own line, Leafs by Snoop, in 2015. Cannabis lovers will find a wide array of products including flower, concentrates, edibles, and “Dogg treats.” The brand is currently only available in Colorado and Canada with plans to expand in the future.

Bob is probably rejoicing in heaven right now as his own brand of cannabis products are hitting the market with rave reviews. Called Marley Natural, the line is an homage to the man himself and his passion for all things weed. Flower is divided into four categories and you’ll even be able to purchase extracts under the same groupings. California and Washington markets currently sell Marley Natural.

Big shocker here – Tommy Chong has his own high-end line of cannabis. He hand selects specific strains and offers pre-rolls, vape cartridges, and has even developed THC breath strips. While he was once associated with silly antics and a stereotypical “stoner” mentality, he’s really blossomed into a trusted name in the industry.

Rap artist Wiz Khalifa created Khalifa Kush in conjunction with RiverRock Cannabis. Though the formula is secret, it appears similar to OG Kush with a lemony taste. Khalifa Kush is strong Indica with a high THC content. It is 80% Indica, only 20% Sativa, but with as high as 26% THC.

The former boxer has purchased a plot of land 50 miles from Los Angeles to start his own pot farm. Whether he will create specific branding and market his products beyond just personal use is unknown, but it’s an interesting development to keep your eye on.

L A S T M A N S T A N D I N G A hybrid proudly bred and grown by Amelia and Shane Osburn of @solgrow Mendocino and selected by Willie Nelson to pair with his 64th studio Album. A cross of Blueberry and Purple Urkle. Its oversized crystal structure and light foliage color can be traced back to the Big Wreck strain, while its distinctive citrus aroma derives from Orange Tree. Last Man Standing has a deep fruity flavor and smells like an orange grove. It will leave you feeling uplifted and energized, which you’ll need if you want a fighting chance of keeping up with Willie. #freshdrops now in California powered by @flow_kana : @calaveraslittletrees @bigsurcannabotanicals @officialojaigreens @desertorganicsolutions #organicsolutionsofthedesert @torrey.sandiego @cannaculturesanjose @perennialholistic . . . . . #williesreserve #lastmanstanding #flowkana #solgrow #sharethestash #legendary #thecaliforniaway #california #californiadreaming #calforniaweed #californiacannabis #hollyweed #willienelson #itsallgoingtopot #rollmeupandsmokemewhenidie #weedstayhiigh #weedsociety #cannabis #americannabis #cannabisculture #cannabissociety #cannabiscommunity #cannabisnews #legalized #legalweed #cannabisnews #musicnews #emeraldtriangle

Other well-known celebrity cannabis brands include Willie Nelson, Ghostface Killah and even Melissa Etheridge. Not only are the rich and famous crafting their own products, but it’s becoming more and more common to associate themselves with what has become a booming industry. In mid-2018, KISS frontman Gene Simmons was paid a cool $2.5 million to act as CEO of a cannabis startup.

It goes without saying that the world of cannabis is growing by leaps and bounds, and it’s not just for losers. When so much money is on the line to craft and market high-end weed, the one question we have to ask ourselves is who’s next? Before long, we might have a celebrity cannabis brands by the Olsen twins or Tom Cruise, but until then, we can enjoy the fine products from some of our favorite stoners.

Stuff & Puff Berner’s New Cali Pre-Roll

Published

Cali

Cannabis mogul Berber is about to drop the latest must-have pre-roll paper from his premium rolling paper brand, Vibes. A new alternative to the traditional cone, The Cali is a cylindrical pre-roll tube that’s been designed for optimum airflow for the optimal smoking experience.

In a press release, the Bay Area rapper says that he’s been rolling for over 20 years, and that over that time, he was constantly told by friends that they would smoke joints over blunts if they could roll them. So he and Vibes co-founders Greenlane developed this innovative alternative.

“As passionate smokers, and connoisseurs, we are gonna continue to focus on quality papers and products that consumers are missing, such as The Cali,” said Berner in a press release.

“All you have to do is stuff and puff with The Cali.”

The Cali is dedicated to those of us who like a big-smoke experience. We found the papers to burn very evenly and smoothly. They are also easy to extinguish and relight,  and even burn evenly in areas where I packed too tightly or too loose (deliberately, before y’all start commenting). 

Plus, The Cali pre-rolls are massive, so make sure you have plenty of herb on hand for your next session to fully enjoy the experience either with your homies or when you’re chilling alone.

The Cali is offered in three sizes — one, two, and three gram — across all four signature Vibes paper collections: Ultra Thin, Rice, Hemp, and Organic Hemp

Look for Vibes papers at your local retailer nationwide.

Psychonauts Celebrate Magic Mushroom Day

Magic Mushrooms Day

September 20 is Magic Mushroom Day. Similarly to stoners celebrating 4/20 and 7/10, and LSD enthusiasts celebrating 4/19, entheogenic communities around the world celebrate the psychedelic renaissance on 9/20.

The concept was coined in 2015 when Nicholas Reville, a mushroom advocate from Providence, Rhode Island, declared September 20 as an “educational day of action,” apparently citing the spirit of 4/20 as an opportunity to talk about psilocybin reform, regulations and, of course, rejoice in the magic of psychedelics.

“9/20 was chosen because it is at the beginning of autumn, when mushrooms are most plentiful; because it is close to the equinox, representing a change in direction; and because it echoes 4/20 and the successful movement for marijuana decriminalization and legalization,” said Reville in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Magic Mushrooms: The Next “Green” Wave?

Interest around the benefits and effects of psilocybin, the main active ingredient in magic mushrooms, has been steadily growing over the last number of years, with legalization closely following.

In May 2019, Denver became the first city to decriminalize psilocybin. Oakland soon followed with its own law in June that same year, decriminalizing plant and fungi psychedelics.

At the last election in 2020, Oregon became the first state to legalize psilocybin with Measure 109 for mental health treatment in supervised settings.

At the same time, the District of Columbia decriminalize the use of magic mushrooms and other psychedelic substances with the passage of Initiative 81.
