While a lot of celebrity brands seem to put out mids in fancy packages, these brands are the real deal. Read on to learn more about these top five celebrity-owned cannabis brands and why we’re certain you’re going to love them.
1. Highsman by Ricky Williams
Ricky Williams was a legendary running back who strapped in for 11 seasons in the NFL. If you’re a sports fan, you’re probably already well-aware that this brand exists (Thanks, Bleacher Report). But for those who don’t know, he linked up with Jeeter to support the charity “Athletes For Care”, which is centered around helping athletes with their physical and mental wellbeing. Proceeds from the collaboration will support Athletes For Care directly. On the menu you can find flower and pre-rolls, including new strains like Sticky Ricky and Berry Bonds. The joints are great for your workouts and are marketed as Pregame (sativas), Halftime (Hybrids), and Postgame (Indicas). Right now you can only find Highsman products in California and Oregon, but there are plans to expand in the future.
2. 22Red by Shavo Obadjian
The bass player from System of a Down, Shavo Odadjian, launched his own cannabis brand recently in Arizona, California and Nevada. You can find everything from flower, pre-rolls, and vape cartridges to a suite of CBD products. The name comes from the mysticism that surrounds the number 22, which is an angel number that is believed to correlate to duality, relationships, selflessness, balance and your soul missions. Odadjian launched the brand with the name thanks to the core moments he’s experienced the number 22 in his life. If you see it, try the Mimosa22 and the 22OG. You won’t be disappointed!
3. TICAL by Method Man
Method Man has stayed busy as a successful rapper, actor and cannabis advocate for over 25 years. The former Wu-Tang member launched this brand in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Michigan and Nevada, bringing these areas pre-rolls, flower and edibles for a good cause. TICAL stands for Taking Into Consideration All Lives to align with the working-class people Method Man grew up with. TICAL is available in black-owned dispensaries all over the country, which was an intentional choice to promote social equity in the cannabis industry, which is harder for African Americans to break into after the war on drugs. If you’re in the market to try some flower, look out for the TICAL C.R.E.A.M and Headbanger Boogie.
4. Cookies by Berner
Everyone and their mom has heard of Cookies by now, considering it’s become one of the biggest cannabis and lifestyle brands in the world at this point. Cookies was founded by Berner, a rapper under Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang label, along with self-taught grow expert Jigga. Together they started Cookies in the San Francisco bay area with the Cookie Family, and they’ve cranked out some seriously cool stuff all over the country and Canada ever since. You can find Cookies in California, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Oregon. However, you can try their strains pretty much anywhere. Jigga and The Cookies Fam are responsible for the uber-famous Girl Scout Cookies, Gelato, Cherry Pie and Sunset Sherbet strains that you can find all over the world.
5. Willie’s Reserve by Willie Nelson
Willie Nelson, the legendary country music singer and longstanding cannabis advocates and spokesman, launched Wille’s Reserve a few years back. He’s up there with Cheech and Chong when it comes to connection with cannabis and bringing that to the public eye, especially in celebrity culture. However, Willie’s Reserve isn’t exactly growing weed and making their own strains. In fact, the stuff totally varies from place to place because it operates more like a co-op. Willie’s Reserve is a white label, which means it buys weed from farms and sells their product under their own name. This helps the farmers earn a premium on their products but also means you get some really great local flower, pre-rolls, and vape carts when you shop products under Willie’s Reserve. You can find Willie’s Reserve products in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Ohio.
