Just weeks after Drake announced his foray into the cannabis industry, fellow Young Money rapper Lil Wayne is now launching his own cannabis line. The New Orleans rapper announced his new venture yesterday called GKUA Ultra Premium, which will launch with a range of high-THC cannabis products “designed to provide consumers with the best high of their lives.”
“I used to just want to get high, now I smoke to get inspired,” said Lil Wayne. “With GKUA, I’m sharing a feeling that I love.”
GKUA launched this week with four products, which will be available to buy in selected California dispensaries. These include a THC vape pen, high-THC cannabis concentrates, pre-rolled joints and a high-potency cannabis flower in a limited number of strains. And if you’re worried Lil Wayne is just using his name to make a quick buck from the green rush, don’t be – all products have been sampled and approved by the legend himself.
“It's an honor to lead this company along with Lil Wayne, curating a premium line of products that inspires people and feeds their creativity,” said GKUA Inc. co-founder Beau Golob to Forbes.
“This is historic and really exciting!”
