Wiz Khalifa’s cannabis empire continues to grow. The multi-platinum rapper has formed an exclusive partnership deal with Gage Growth Corp. The partnership will align Wiz’s Khalifa Kush (KK) brand with Gage Growth to produce a line of premium cannabis products in the state of Michigan. Cannabis in Michigan is medically and recreationally legal. The deal makes Gage Growth the only official retailer and producer of KK products in The Great Lakes State.
“We are excited to partner with Gage for our first expansion into the Midwest, and to finally release KK to my fans in Michigan,” Wiz Khalifa stated. “From day one of Khalifa Kush, we have only partnered with people we align with, who focus on customer and quality over everything, and Gage is one of the best.”
The partnership’s product lineup includes pre-rolls, concentrates, flower, and extracts. Wiz is infamous for using RAW cones for his pre-roll products, which will most likely be the case here as well.
The Khalifa Kush strain was created by the talented rapper approximately eight years ago. The strain is believed to come from an unknown OG strain and is a hybrid. KK gives off a pungent pine aroma, with a hint of tart lemons and earth. The taste will leave hints of sweet citrus and pine on the tongue. KK was not released to the public for many years, but now can be purchased through select partners of the brand. Gage Growth will be that exclusive partner for the state of Michigan. KK will be heavily involved with the consultation pertaining to cultivation, distribution, branding, and consumer engagement.
“Wiz is a globally recognized cannabis connoisseur, ” stated Fabian Monaco, CEO of Gage. “KK has had incredible success in other U.S. cannabis markets, establishing a brand that is synonymous with ultra-premium quality. We are confident that this partnership will allow Michigan to become a unique cannabis destination in the near future.”
