Recent Celebrity Cannabis Drops to Try
Published on Jun 11, 2021
It is absolutely no secret any longer that the cannabis business is booming and with multiple states choosing to legalize recreational cannabis in recent months, it looks like the United States may eventually be heading for federal legalization after all. With cannabis sales in the billions of dollars in most states, everyone is looking to get into the game these days - and that includes the ultra-wealthy celebrities and icons. Below are some great new happenings from your favorite celebrity stoners.
Are Celebrity Brands the Future?
There are a few ways that celebrities have entered the cannabis space. Many celebs choose to create their own unique brand, as the likes of Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, and even Willie Nelson have done. Or some celebs simply join existing companies - like Martha Stewart who was tapped by Canopy Growth, a giant in the Canadian cannabis industry, to be an advisor and strategist. Or some will simply dip their toes in the water and become brand ambassadors, becoming a face for the product.
If you have mixed feelings about celebs jumping on the bandwagon, remember that this is a good sign for the industry. This rush of celebrities into the market shows just how much cannabis is reaching into the mainstream and just how much money there can be made across the board. These celebrities, such as Martha Stewart, will be able to reach a different demographic and change the stigma surrounding the substance. All in all, celebs in the space are a good omen.
