Waka Flocka Flame can probably out-smoke you, but now he wants to heal you. Waka has offered a $50,000 salary for a personal cannabis roller; he has had his own strain of cannabis for more than four years. He’s now expanding his cannabinoid palette beyond traditional cannabis to CBD.
Last week, the MC who once rapped, “All I know is smoke weed, rob, steal and sell dope,” hosted an event at The 420: A CBD Store in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, celebrating multivitamin company Vitafusion’s entrance into CBD with the company’s first CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Extract gummies. Over the last few years, CBD has gone from a relatively unknown medicine to one of the trendiest, being placed in lotions and face creams, and food chains like Carl’s Jr. testing CBD-infused hamburgers.
Waka spoke with ONE37pm at the event about how his future in cannabis won’t be just selling weed, the healing applications of CBD and what cannabis legalization means for him and his past.
