Lil Wayne is officially a weed entrepreneur. Joining the ranks of Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, the singer and known pot enthusiast is launching his own cannabis brand. Do what you love!
GKUA Ultra Premium will feature some of the "highest natural levels of THC available," sourced from the "most experienced growers who produce strains that are very limited, incredibly potent and impossibly difficult to find."

Wayne is taking this beloved venture quite seriously and all the products will be tasted and approved by him first before hitting shelves. The current range includes the limited edition Hollygrove flower strain, GKUA Ultra Premium vape battery and vape cartridges, and intensely potent concentrates.
"I used to just want to get high, now I smoke to get inspired," Wayne said of the launch. "With GKUA, I'm sharing a feeling that I love."
The hip-hop hitmaker also claims that his brand will not only get people high but also celebrate "culture and artistic development," by supporting new artists in "multiple mediums" through collaborations that will promote the "GKUA lifestyle."
To kick off the series of collaborations, GKUA will be offering customers free tickets to what the brand is calling the "hottest party of the year," featuring Lil Wayne and friends in 2020.
