With so many great cannabis brands releasing exciting new weed products in new markets, it can be hard to keep track of every release. So we’re rounding up a few significant releases. This week, we look at releases by Rose Delights, Platinum, and Stone Road.
Rose Delights: Limited release of the book Trees
Written in 2013, Rose Delights’ book, Trees, recounts an unedited, actual text conversation between two cannabis traffickers in Northern California. Readers will see the ins and outs of once-illegal weed dealing, while also following the personal lives of the two characters featured in the book.
There are only 20 copies left of Trees, and 100% of the proceeds from sales will go to Parker Coleman, who is currently serving 60 years in prison.
House of Wise: New CBD brand launch
A new CBD line, House of Wise, launched on June 15, offering gummies and tinctures that purport to help sexual health, improve sleep quality, and reduce stress for women.
The brand has also partnered with the nonprofit Last Prisoner Project to fund a scholarship program for women and children. Donations from House of Wise will act as mini-grants to children of incarcerated cannabis prisoners. The funds from these grants may be spent by the recipients however they choose.
Stone Road: New rolling pack
California brand Stone Road just released its new Roll Your Own kits containing a ½-ounce of pre-ground flower, rolling papers, and tear-and-use crutches. You can find these pouches in three strains: Strawnana, Banana Split, and Papaya Punch.
Platinum: New Pride-themed vape cartridge
In June, Platinum released a special edition vape cartridge in celebration of Pride Month. The new cartridges come in full and half-grams and contain 90% THC. A portion of the sales will go to the California and Michigan chapters of Equality, a nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community.
Available: California and Michigan
Glass House Farms: Release of 3 new strains
If you’re looking to try a few fresh strains over the weekend, Glass House Farms just dropped three new ones on June 17. The new additions are Wonder Bars, a cross between GMO and Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies; Life Hack, a cross between Wedding Crasher and Jet Fuel Gelato; and Cherry Punch, a cross between Cherry AK and Purple Punch.
TribeTokes: Charity announcement
