Launch of a cannabis line in Colorado
Rapper Method Man launches a range of cannabis flowers in Colorado as he heads to the Rocky Mountains for a series of concerts.
Method Man has teamed up with Boulder-based Vera Cultivation to grow three strains – Sweet Grease, Free MAC, and Orange Cookie Kush – under the artist’s TICAL brand, which locals can purchase starting Friday. It was the same day that Wu-Tang Clan arrived at the Red Rocks Amphitheater with the support of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, with the support of Outkast rapper Big Boi.
TICAL is an acronym for “Consider All Lives”, and also the title of Method Man’s 1994 solo album. It’s more than the name of her marijuana brand – the saying also embodies her mission to ” raise awareness of historical racial and ethnic disparities and inequalities in aspects of criminal justice and matters of the cannabis space, “according to a statement.
That’s why TICAL varieties will be available exclusively at Simply Pure and WolfPac Cannabis dispensaries in Denver, both of which are owned by people of color.
In addition to the Red Rocks show, Wu-Tang and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra will perform at Mission Ballroom on Saturday before Method Man returns to Red Rocks on September 1 for 420 on the Rocks alongside Redman, Wiz Khalifa, Busta Rhymes and Collie. Buds. Method Man, Redman and Busta Rhymes are also scheduled to perform at the Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on September 2.
Method Man is just the latest musician to launch a cannabis brand in Colorado. Last year, soul revival band Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats released a range of vape pens ahead of a two-night run at Red Rocks. It was in partnership with Willie’s Reserve, the Denver-based cannabis company of outlaw country icon Willie Nelson.
