31% – How many cannabis drink consumers in Illinois aware of Cann social tonic

Cann offers “social tonics” in trendy flavors with only 2 milligrams-5 milligrams per can. It was hot on the trend of microdosing cannabis when it hit California shelves in 2019.

However, the brand has been able to gain more awareness in less saturated markets it’s entered – such as Illinois – than in its home-state’s market.

For more than 30 years, through countless chart-topping hits and landmark artists, Death Row Records has stood as one of the music industry’s most iconic and culturally significant platforms. Recently acquired by Snoop Dogg, the infamous musical empire has reemerged as a multi-category cultural platform across music, fashion, entertainment, and cannabis, all united by the blockchain for a new generation.

On Thursday, the company announced its first cannabis drop will be announced on social media at @DeathRowRecords and @DeathRowCannabis, using an animation of their globally recognized logo and reveal of their branded pre-roll tube. The teaser video was created by artist MylarMen with a soundtrack by Kevin Gilliam aka DJ Battlecat. The 22-second clip is sure to electrify the global fans of the label while being a buzzy beginning of Death Row Records’ domination of the weed nation.

Promising to return Death Row to its former glory, all elements of the former label are being refitted for today’s audience and their evolving tastes. The first drop debuts in limited edition commemorative metallic bags, featuring the iconic hooded prisoner figure seated in an electric chair on the front. Important to note: this is a brand new version of the prisoner that was designed for the launch of the cannabis brand – the main difference being he has one hand broken free and is smoking a joint.

Another especially exciting note for those cannabis connoisseurs is the man responsible for curating Death Row Cannabis. AK – hand-selected by Snoop himself – is a longtime West Coast legacy cultivator and industry insider, best known for his role alongside former partner WizardTrees in sprouting, selecting, and expertly growing the RS11, Studio 54, and Shirazi strains from exotic cannabis breeder DEO.

He’s the man behind the IYKYK brand SMKRS (@smkrs_LA), and he is also well known as the VP of Cultivation for TRP LLC, who owns most of the Cookies stores across the nation including their facilities in Florida. AK’s reputation for growing “fire” weed and his palette when it comes to selecting winning strains, keeps people camped out in lines in front of their dispensaries.

Launching in-stores next week, Death Row Cannabis is not one to keep its fans waiting. The brand will soon make an announcement with an exact date and locations for their debut drop. Select Cookies California stores (Brentwood, San Bernardino, and San Diego) will be the first locations to carry Death Row Cannabis, with other locations and more states to follow soon.

New York opened its first adult-use cannabis dispensary in lower manhattan on December 29, 2022. The state had insisted sales would begin by the end of the year and it managed to do that in the waning days of 2022. Non-profit Housing Works is the first dispensary and all its profits will go to its charitable works.

“For years, advocates and members of New York’s cannabis community have been working toward this momentous milestone; the first adult-use dispensary opening its doors, stocked with brands and products grown, processed, manufactured and owned right here in New York,” said Kristina Lopez Adduci, CEO and founder of House of Puff. “We are ecstatic that House of Puff will be one of those New York brands that will be available for purchase and thank Housing Works for supporting us and other local cannabis companies during this crucial moment. The opening of their dispensary is just one embodiment of the vision set out by the MRTA and is a significant step towards establishing a fully operable and equitable legal cannabis industry built by and for New Yorkers and our communities most adversely affected by cannabis prohibition.”

“While working in the Governor’s office, I had the honor of helping shape the Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA). It is the most ambitious cannabis legislation in the nation and great care was taken to learn from states that came before us and work to establish a truly equitable, legal cannabis industry,” said Jesse Campoamor, founder of Campoamor & Sons. “Today’s store opening is an important milestone for New York’s nascent cannabis industry and begins the process of rewriting the narrative on cannabis. Just a few years ago, New York led the nation in cannabis arrests, but soon New York will lead the country in legal sales and tax revenue collection. I congratulate everyone on this monumental day, including Governor Hochul, the Office of Cannabis Management, the Cannabis Control Board, and of course, Housing Works, and look forward to celebrating the opening of the first dispensary.”

“Since the MRTA was signed, now nearly two years ago, we have all been envisioning the moment that legal adult-use sales would finally launch here in New York,” said Allan Gandelman, President of the Cannabis Association of New York. “The state’s first recreational dispensary opening its doors with shelves stocked full of New York-owned-and-operated brands, including products grown and processed by CANY members, is a culmination of all the hard work, dedication, and advocacy of the cannabis community over the past several years. We applaud Housing Works for being mindful and supportive of this vision and congratulate them on their entrance into the industry. Though this moment feels surreal, we hope it’s just one of many upcoming milestones achieved toward building a truly restorative, opportunistic, and sustainable New York-led cannabis industry.”
