With cannabis being legal for over a year now here in Canada, smoking weed and consuming other cannabis products is becoming increasingly normalized. People are realizing that weed isn't as harmful as they once thought and that the product actually has a ton of benefits. Apart from the people you know becoming more interested in weed, quite a few celebrities have also gotten involved in the industry. Here's a list of Canadian celebrity cannabis brands that you need to try.
Of course, there are some Canadian celebs who prefer to smoke their green and have yet to turn it into a business venture, other celebs have seen an opportunity to create their own brand and ran with it. Most recently, Drake announced that he's teamed up with Canopy Growth Corp. to create a brand of his own called More Life, named after his 2017 mixtape.
As a clever marketing scheme, members of Drake's team were seen handing out flowers around Toronto's Downtown core earlier this week, asking people to follow the @morelife Instagram page to keep up with Drake's latest business venture. The account is still private but has racked up over 17.3 million followers so far.
