Recently Damian Marley announced a partnership with Colorado -based cannabis leader, Tru Cannabis, for the brand new Stony Hill dispensary in Denver. Stony hill has been personally developed and tested by Damian, it reflects his style and it goes beyond a product line. It is a full retail dispensary brand and the artistes presence can be felt immediately. Just like his Music , passions and roots, Damians connection to the Cannabis industry gives his fans a good feeling.
There is also another cannabis company that embraces safety and regulation and Damian is in a partnership with them also. The company “Ocean Grown Extracts” is a California-local family owned and operated Cannabis Company. They grow cannabis in a former California prison, which is being transformed into a 77,000 square-foot area on twenty acres of land, in Coalinga, California. They aim to work closely with the city of Coalinga and the state of California to become the best cannabis facility with a city permitted, and state- compliant, medical marijuana cultivation, manufacturing and testing facility.
It is great to know that so many great things are taking place on the planet and the Marley’s are involved with these new trends. The future of the cannabis industry and the Reggae industry seems to be in the best hands, and we can just keep on hoping that everything that is being done will continue to be successful.
