If you walk into a California dispensary, you’ll find it chock-full of vape cartridges, edible, concentrates, and prerolls. What you can’t always get your hands on, is an infused preroll — a specialty joint that contains not only herb but also a cannabis extract in some form. This might be CO2 extract oil rolled on the exterior of the preroll’s paper, or a concentrate like hash mixed into the flower before filling the cone. Only a few brands currently make infused prerolls, but the demand is quickly growing. Enter Space Coyote.
The Space Coyote Infused Preroll Has Landed
Launched just two months ago, the Space Coyote is a concentrate-infused preroll powered by brand collaborations. The team behind this exciting new product believes in potent, THC rich products, which is in stark contrast to newer low-dose and CBD brands coming onto the scene in recent months.
Filled with quality extracts that are already known and loved by the market, Space Coyote does not want customers to shy away from getting glazed, blazed, and totally cosmic. One could say that they fully embrace the heritage stoner market because they are, in fact, stoners themselves.
“One of our core business values is collaboration,” said Libby Cooper, founder, and Co-CEO. “On top of collaborations with extract artists, Space Coyote also collaborates with mixed media artists including textile designers, painters, muralists, musicians, and more.
“We know that there’s nothing better than lighting up a joint during your favorite song or getting high before making art,” said Cooper. “Space Coyote wants all humans, artist-identifying and artist-not-yet-identifying, to realize their own creative abilities. Everyone has the potential to be an artist.”
Cooper, who previously worked at Eaze serving as their Creative Director for almost two years, has partnered up with her actual life partner, Scott Sundvor, to bring Space Coyote to the world. Sundvor, who previously founded food allergy testing device Nima Sensor, is extremely excited to be joining Cooper in the cannabis industry.
“We want to bring the artistry of concentrate production to consumers that might not own a dab rig, or who might own a rig but just want to have something more convenient when on the go,” said Sundvor.
The couple’s new business endeavor has taken off with the number of dispensaries carrying the Space Coyote quickly growing.
“We are really stoked to see the cannabis community love what we are putting out there,” said Cooper. “We are looking forward to welcoming more and more people into the Coyote family.”

Tyson 2.0 Launches New Mike Bites Cannabis Gummies
Nearly 25 years after he was disqualified from the World Boxing Association Heavyweight Championship for biting his opponent’s ears, Mike Tyson’s Tyson 2.0 cannabis brand has just released ear-shaped edibles, Mike Bites.
The new ear-shaped edibles are complete with a missing chunk where Tyson removed a portion of Evander Holyfield’s cartilage in what became known as The Bite Fight. After Tyson bit off a chunk of Holyfield’s ear, the 1997 match resumed. However, after attempting to snack on Holyfield’s second ear, Tyson was disqualified and his boxing licence was withdrawn. The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed Tyson a a $3 million fine for his actions and he didn’t fight again for over a year.
Wiz Khalifa Debuts New Taylor Gang x Stündenglass Collab
Wiz Khalifa and his entertainment company Taylor Gang Ent. have collaborated with Stündenglass, the world’s first gravity-powered infuser, to introduce the iconic gold and black Taylor Gang x Stündenglass.
“I’m honored to have collaborated with long time friend Wiz Khalifa, who is as passionate about this product as I am. Our mutual admiration for Stündenglass made it a natural collaboration,” Stündenglass CEO Chris Folkerts said via a press release.
Taylor Gang x Stündenglass is an authentic collaboration developed after the multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning, Golden Globe-nominated Khalifa discovered Stündenglass and began enjoying it regularly as seen on his Instagram.
“I love my Stündenglass, and I’m pumped everyone gets to experience this with me now,” Khalifa.
The infuser features a patented 360-degree gravity system that elicits a powerful and immersive experience. It generates kinetic motion activation via cascading water, opposing airflow technology and the natural force of gravity.
The Taylor Gang gravity bing comes in an exclusive black and gold colorway and features two glass globes on a metal base made of aircraft-grade aluminum, surgical grade stainless steel, and high-quality Teflon seals.
Taylor Gang includes artists Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, and Berner among others — the former of which has his own line Stündenglass collab with his Cookies brand.
“We’re very excited to launch the official Taylor Gang x Stündenglass. We use glass in our everyday lives, so it only made sense to team up and create an exclusive Taylor Gang collaboration for the fans,” Taylor Gang said.
No Super Bowl for Brock Ollie
With medicinal marijuana being legal in 37 states and recreational cannabis allowed in 18, we should be seeing commercials for companies, products, and services almost as frequently as commercials for sports betting, which is permitted in 30 states in some form.
However, mainstream cannabis advertising continues to be non-existent, as demonstrated in the recent news that NBC has rejected an ad by cannabis e-commerce and advertising platform Weedmaps from being shown during the Super Bowl LVI event his coming Sunday.
Weedmaps reportedly approached the network late last year about airing a Super Bowl commercial that would be “similar to a PSA,” according to reports. Execs volunteered to present some of their earlier educational-based programming, assuring NBC executives that it would not contain any direct-sell messages, which are still forbidden under federal law.
“The answer was a hard no — they wouldn’t even entertain the conversation,” Weedmaps Chief Operating Officer Juanjo Feijoo told Adweek. “We see ourselves as trying to be trailblazers in the industry and making new inroads where others haven’t gone before in cannabis advertising. So it was disappointing.”
The contentious ad personifies cannabis as Brock Ollie, a head of broccoli, the veggie emoji commonly used as a visual representation of cannabis in marketing. The 30-second ad takes viewers through a day in the life of Brock Ollie, whose superfood identity is in jeopardy as he is repeatedly misidentified as cannabis. The ad offers a lighthearted take on the industry’s issues, such as social media censorship and a lack of clear advertising standards, which limit cannabis-related commercials during nationally televised events like the Super Bowl.
“Despite three quarters of the country having legalized cannabis and the bipartisan enthusiasm we continue to see in support for change at the federal level, the industry continues to face roadblocks that inhibit competition in the legal market and stifle opportunities to educate,” Chris Beals, CEO of Weedmaps said. “There’s an irony in the fact that the biggest night for advertising will feature an array of consumer brands in regulated industries, from beverage alcohol to sports betting, yet legal cannabis retailers, brands and businesses have been boxed out.”
The game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams will be played Sunday in L.A.
