Lil Wayne has decided to drop his own brand of cannabis, making the most of the legal states in America that allow recreational use of marijuana, and also making the most of a lucrative business opportunity.

Joining the slew of other celebrities who have put out their own brand of weed, Lil Wayne has announced his own brand of cannabis, ‘GKUA Ultra Premium’. Clearly a huge fan of the plant, Wayne will be entering the same marketplace as Snoop Dogg, Whoop Goldberg, Willie Nelson, and Wiz Khalifa.

“I used to just want to get high, now I smoke to get inspired,” said Lil Wayne of the launch of the brand. “With GKUA, I’m sharing a feeling that I love.”

GKUA boasts products with some of the “highest natural levels of THC available,” which they added is sourced from growers specializing in limited and potent strains.

“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 GKUA co-founder and president Beau Golob. “It’s an honour to lead this company along with Lil Wayne, curating a premium line of products that inspired people and feeds their creativity.”

Coinciding with the brand’s launch, GKUA is offering customers the chance to win tickets to a very exclusive GKUA VIP Party, which will feature a performance from Tunechi himself. The product itself will be available at LA dispensaries starting from 2o20. More locations will be announced as time goes on. GKUA is also offering THC vape carts, concentrates and many more products.

The news of the brand arrives shortly after Wayne found himself in trouble in Ad Diriyah, Saudia Arabia for Diriyah Music Festival. In a since-deleted tweet, Wayne said, “Never going to Riyadh again.” As HotNewHipHop pointed out, one of the officials of Saudi Arabia tweeted at him directly telling him how illegal drugs are in the country. “Drugs are not allowed in Saudia Arabia and I am sure that our guys informed you before,” he tweeted. “So shut up and go back to your home.”
