Artists entering the cannabis business
Lil Wayne is not the first artist though to launch a cannabis brand. Snoop Dog has launched his own cannabis line back in November 2015. In collaboration with Canopy Growth, a world-leading cannabis company, his brand Leafs By Snoop offers 8 products:
- Indica dominant: Bananas, Northern Lights, Moonbeam, Cali Kush and Purple bush – https://www.leafly.com/strains/snoop-dogg-og
- Sativa dominant: Lemon Pie, Blueberry Dream and Tangerine Man
- High-CBD strain called 3D CBD
Canopy Growth has confirmed a partnership with another rap artist this time Canadian. Drake is also an artist that enters that cannabis industry with a brand that is
centered around wellness, discovery, and overall personal growth
More Life Growth Co. has entered the scene with a marketing move that is as unique as the artist that represents it. The “Champagne Papi” sent flowers across downtown Toronto to promote his new venture that visions to facilitate connections and shared experiences across the globe.
the new term that was coined to represent the entrepreneurs that enter the cannabis market, are making their love for the plant public and connect their personal brands with cannabis products. Professional athletes like Mike Tyson and the Diaz Bros have already advocated for the healing benefits of the leaf. As medical cannabis legalisation advances across the world and recreational use is slowly being socially accepted and decriminalised we will be sure to see more of these public figures joining the cannabis revolution.
