Plenty of celebrities have dipped their toes in the cannabis industry. Usually, they’ll do a licensing deal that allows cannabis brands to make a product and use that celeb’s name, image, and likeness for marketing. Because of this, you will often see limited-edition drops where they release a product once — then you never see it again.
To spare you the heartbreak of a limited-edition drop, consider some celebrity cannabis brands with products you can try again and again.
Ricky Williams: Highsman
Highsman is football legend Ricky Williams’ brand. It offers flower and infused pre-rolls. Highsman markets its strains as Pregame (sativa), Halftime (hybrid), and Postgame (indica). The Jesus Zkittlezworth and Ken Jiffy Jr. strains ain’t half bad. The Berry Bonds strain is the champion though.
Available: California and Oregon
Al Harrington: Viola
Viola is former NBA player Al Harrington’s brand. It also produces Allen Iverson’s line of weed: Iverson. Viola has flower, pre-rolls, and concentrate — the concentrates are pretty fire, especially in Oregon.
That Iverson ’01 flower is a great-feeling smoke, too. Viola’s largest market in Michigan, so if you’re there, check out the brand’s heat.
Available: Colorado, Oregon, and Michigan
Mike Tyson: Tyson 2.0
Formerly known as Tyson Ranch, Tyson 2.0 is Mike Tyson’s weed brand. It has flower, pre-rolls, edibles, dabs, and even mouth spray. Toad is its premium flower line. The strains include Toad, Desert Toad, Sonoran Toad, and more. The Sonoran Toad is the best, in my opinion — it tastes a little bit sweet and the high is a smooth daytime cruise.
Available: AZ, CA, CO, DE, MS, IL, MA, MI, NV, OH, DC

You know Cookies. Everyone knows Cookies. It’s known for high-quality flower and having big blue stores in damn near every state possible. The face of the brand is Berner, a rapper, and entrepreneur from the Bay Area who popularized the brand alongside the famous Cookie Family.
The Cookie Fam is responsible for some of the most sought-after strains in the world, like GSC, Gelato, and Gary Payton. Cookies puts out pre-rolls, flower, dabs, edibles, and vape cartridges.
Available: California, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Oregon

B Real: Insane x Dr. Greenthumb’s
Insane is my single favorite celebrity cannabis brand. It puts out some of the best flower California offers — terps, potency, all of that. Insane rolls out pre-rolls and flower and it’s owned by B Real, a long-time cannabis activist and member of legendary rap group Cypress Hill, and his partner Kenji Fujishima. They have been around since way before weed was legal and found in Apple-esque stores. Check out the Insane OG strain to see just one of the many reasons B Real and Kenji are so highly respected.
Dr. Greenthumb’s is a dispensary chain that has recently evolved into its own premium flower line as well.
