Greenlane Brings Keith Haring Artwork To The World of Cannabis

Mostly known for Pax and Juul sales, Greenlane Holdings Inc.(NASDAQ: GNLN) is now launching a line of functional glassware decorated with the imagery of legendary graffiti artist Keith Haring. The smoking accessories include small glass pipes, larger water pipes ashtrays and regular rolling trays.  The K.Haring Collection launches November 21, 2019, in Higher Standards stores and will be available online on November 25, 2019, at haringglass.com.

“As a longtime admirer and supporter of Keith Haring, his art, and his legacy, I am thrilled to introduce the K.Haring Collection,” said Sasha Kadey, Chief Marketing Officer of Greenlane and Creative Director for the K.Haring Collection. “The art world has long had an intertwined relationship with cannabis and has in many ways been instrumental in the advancement of the industry. The K.Haring Collection will help our mission to destigmatize and elevate the cannabis experience.”

Kadey said he has looked at numerous deals for branding efforts, but none resonated as strongly as the Haring artwork. The artist is not only well-respected in the art world, but as a graffiti artist, he also brings street cred amongst the cannabis community.

Haring passed away in 1990 at the age of 31 in Manhattan from the Aids disease. The Haring Foundation has a mission to continue to promote the artwork but is also known for supporting not-for-profit organizations that help underprivileged children, as well as organizations involved in education, prevention, and care related to AIDS. Haring doesn’t have any cannabis images in his artwork, but his skateboard images are loved by the skateboard community which does support the cannabis community.

Kadey said there was a lot of crossover between cannabis, the art world, and skateboarding which led to the company’s launch party that combined a show of the new products with apparel from Diamond Supply that featured Haring artwork. The event was held in Manhattan and drew a combination of cannabis industry insiders, as well a some of the top city skateboarders.

The ten-piece collection consists of high-quality glassware that may be used as décor and includes all of the essentials for an elevated smoking experience. Kadey made a point of mentioning that the company didn’t just grab and glass product and slap an image on it. The items were specifically designed for this project. Each piece is distinguished by Haring’s designs with four different colorways to be released in the coming months.

The Keith Haring Glass Collection includes:

K.Haring x BiC© Lighter, $5
K.Haring Taster, $30
K.Haring Tray, $60
K.Haring Dog Bat Catchall, $60
K.Haring Bat Man Catchall, $60
K.Haring Angel Catchall, $60
K.Haring Spoon, $50
K.Haring Bubbler, $120
K.Haring Rig, $180
K.Haring Water Pipe, $220

Kadey said he has since been inundated with other artists wanting a similar brand launch, but for now, he is being very selective. “We are looking forward to offering this sophisticated glassware collection to Higher Standards customers both in stores and online as we continue to grow our house of brands and expand our direct to consumer business, offering innovative designs and products to consumers across the U.S.”
