Trulieve continued its quest for cannabis gold this week by announcing an exclusive partnership with multi-platinum-selling rapper Wiz Khalifa. The partnership will extend the Grammy and Golden Globe Award-nominated recording artist’s Florida-based brand Khalifa Kush to an expanded market in 2022.
Through the agreement, Trulieve becomes the exclusive producer, processor and retailer of Khalifa Kush branded products beginning this summer, the company said in a statement.
Recording artist and cannabis entrepreneur Wiz Khalifa is an American rapper, singer and songwriter. His debut album “Show and Prove” saw him signed with Warner Bros. and later Atlantic records. His first hit “Say Yeah” charted on the Rhythmic Top 40 and Hot Rap Tracks charts establishing his unique talent as an entertainer. Perhaps prescient of his current passion as a producer of premium cannabis products, in 2010 Wiz Khalifa released the mixtape “Kush and Orange Juice” as a free download.
“We’re excited to partner with the undisputed leader in the Florida market,” said Khalifa.”Trulieve’s dedication to working with the community and creating an amazing customer experience perfectly lines up with our brand values, making them a great fit for our first expansion to the East Coast.”
Khalifa Kush debuted in 2015. The company has seen growth by focusing on high-quality products in legalized cannabis markets. The brand offers a growing lineup of flower, pre-rolls, vapes, edibles and concentrates, powered by proprietary genetics. The deal with Trulieve will expand Khalifa Kush’s presence in Florida, and take it into northern markets, including Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Khalifa Kush products are currently available in select markets including California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah.Advertisement
“Trulieve is committed to delivering a broad selection of the highest-quality cannabis brands to better serve our patient communities. Khalifa Kush is a respected brand known for top-tier genetics among cannabis connoisseurs. We look forward to becoming the exclusive home of the brand’s premium products in Florida and eventually in other markets,” Trulieve chief marketing officer Valda Coryat said in a statement.
As the leading medical cannabis provider in Florida, the second largest medical cannabis market in the U.S., and positioned as an operator in 11 U.S. states, Trulieve offers an array of THC and CBD products. Trulieve cannabis products include edibles, smokable flower, concentrates, tinctures, topical creams, vaporizers and more. Trulieve also offers statewide home delivery in Florida, online ordering, and in-store pickup.
