5 celebreties looking to cash in on America’s ‘green rush’


Since Colorado legalised recreational cannabis in 2016 we have seen many other states follow suit as the economic benefits become clear.

This has sparked a ‘Green Rush’ as multinational corporations invest millions to gain a foothold in the market.

One sure sign that the cannabis industry in the U.S. is gaining steam is the plethora of celebrities hoping to cash in.

Below we list 5 notobal celeb’s cashing in on America’s Green Rush.

Snoop Dogg

In 2019, Snoop Dogg is less rapper and more cannabis entrepreneur.

Over the last few years, Snoop Dogg has partnered with a variety of companies to release branded smoking accessories, vaporizers, and hemp clothing.

However, is the latest endeavour is probably his most exciting. Snoop Dogg is currently working with Canopy Growth, one of the largest cannabis companies in the world to develop his own brand of cannabis strains: Leafs by Snoop.

Canopy Growth is hoping to leverage Snoop’s status as one of the world’s most trusted smokers in the cannabis industry and by 2020 are hoping to offer a full spectrum of diverse strains, including high CBD and mid to high-range varieties.

Seth Rogan

Seth Rogan has written some of Hollywood’s most celebrated stoner comedies including Pineapple Express, Sausage Party, Superbad and The Interview. His latest venture, perhaps unsurprising is his own cannabis company; Houseplant.

Houseplant launched in April 2019 with a strain named Houseplant Sativa. Two other strains called Houseplant Hybrid and Houseplant Indica will be available later this year, along with a range of soft gels and pre-rolled joints.

Houseplant represents over 5 years of Seth Rogan’s vision and hard work and he describes it as a ‘dream come true’. To set themselves apart from the competition, Houseplant’s focus will be on selecting only the very highest quality genetics

Mike Tyson

After a multi-decade career in inflicting pain on his opponents, Mike Tyson was left with mental and physical scars. Tyson discovered that CBD and Cannabis could help get him off obituaries and off the heavy-medication drugs and discover a sense of peace of well-being.

He wants to share that well being with the wider public and is opening a farm which has been described by some as a ‘cannabis theme park’

His farm, Tyson Ranch, boasts 40 acres of land which will be used to cultivate cannabis and also include camping facilities, edibles restaurants and a cultivation school.

Mayor Jennifer Wood referred to Tyson Ranch as a “rebirth” of California City as it will likely provide a slew of new jobs for the community.

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Academy Award-winning actress has received both positive and negative attention for her lifestyle company, Goop that launched in 2008.

However, her range of cannabis range has only received plaudits. She has worked with MedMen to release a variety of cannabis products including a vape pen, CBD patch, bathroom products and herbal-infused tea.

Gwyneth believes cannabis products are a perfect fit for Goop due to its natural ability to act as a natural alternative to chronic-pain, sleep and depression medicines.

Patrick Stewart

During his promotional tour of Logan, Patrick Stewart unwittingly dropped a bombshell when he admitted he is a daily user of cannabis

He was prescribed cannabis by a doctor in Los Angeles to help with his ortho-arthritis in his hands. He takes his medicine in the form of drops, a spray and edibles.

He believes switching to cannabis-based medicines represented a good decision for his health because his previous medicines, Advil, Aleve and Naproxen are known to have serious side effects.

He recently became a patron of Oxford Cannabinoid Technologies, which invests in research for pain and inflammation therapies.
