Lil Wayne just launched his own cannabis line: GKUA Ultra Premium. The line of high-potency cannabis products is “designed to provide consumers with the best high of their lives.”
Flower for the products is sourced from experienced growers, and the brand selects strands with the highest amount of THC available, allowing it to offer exceptionally potent products.
“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.”
At the onset, GKUA products will be available at select Los Angeles dispensaries; however, the brand plans to roll out to all of California in 2020. Here’s a full list of its current products:
- GKUA Ultra Premium Flower: Sourced from the most experienced growers, GKUA will produce strains that are very limited, incredibly potent and impossibly difficult to find…truly the best flower! Available at launch is HOLLYGROVE a unique strain for Lil Wayne and GKUA and UPROAR a very limited strain.
- GKUA Ultra Premium Battery Technology: This new proprietary ceramic heating element and cutting-edge design is optimized to efficiently deliver vape in easily controllable doses while elevating the user experience. The battery technology combined with GKUA Ultra Premium THC or CBD oil is the future of vape.
- GKUA THC Vape: Sourced from the best cannabis with all organic inputs, GKUA’s THC Vape is an exclusive formulation that carefully transforms the highest quality cannabis into potent THC vape oil. Independently lab tested and certified for purity. GKUA Ultra Premium vape oil, pure and potent.
- GKUA Ultra Premium Concentrates: Intensely potent and flavorful, GKUA Ultra Premium Concentrates are sourced from the finest cannabis flower with off-the-chart THC levels created for dabbing or adding to flower. Potency you can taste and feel.
Going forward, Lil Wayne hopes to work with artists like song writers, models, and musicians to create unique collaborations. And as you might imagine, one of those collaborations is expected to be a “GKUA VIP Party” that will feature Lil Wayne along with other performers. That’s currently slated to take place in 2020.
"The combination of our incredible products, market knowledge and commitment to quality, paired with the unmatched fanbase of Lil Wayne, the ultimate cannabis connoisseur, creates an unprecedented opportunity to create a cannabis brand that values creativity and the artistic pursuit,” said Beau Golob, President and Co-founder GKUA Inc.
“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. This is historic and really exciting!”
Lil Wayne joins a number of celebrities that have also launched their own cannabis brands including Willie Nelson, Seth Rogan, and even Martha Stewart.
