Lil Wayne has launched his own personal brand of weed, promising that the strain he has developed contains the “highest natural levels of THC available.”
GKUA Ultra Premium is now available in select Los Angeles stores as a flower and concentrate, as well as vape batteries and cartridges. A wider release is due in 2020.
“I used to just want to get high,” Wayne explains, “now I smoke to get inspired… With GKUA, I’m sharing a feeling that I love.”
Each of the flower and concentrate brands were tested and approved by Wayne, and some will contain exceptionally high levels of THC. The debut strain, Hollygrove, is named after Wayne’s childhood neighbourhood in New Orleans.
Watch the launch video for GKUA Ultra Premium below:
Earlier this year (September 20), Blink-182 presented Lil Wayne with a birthday joint on stage during the latter’s set in Brooklyn.
The pair had been touring together frequently over the summer, and wound up their co-headlining set of live dates at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
During Wayne’s set, the three members of Blink walked on stage and presented the rapper, who was due to turn 37 the following week, with a joint on a silver tray. “What the fuck?!” Wayne’s chuckling DJ was heard remarking at the gift from the band.
“I’ll take this now,” Wayne added, before lighting up with help from drummer Travis Barker and one of his backing crew before declaring Blink “my fucking brothers for life, man”.
