Wanna try MaRihanna?
Posted on November 18 2015
Rihanna’s credentials as a pioneer of new strains of weed are questionable. I mean, she clearly enjoys a smoke (just Google Rihanna Weed) but does that mean she’ll be any good at growing her own? She may well have a good palette but how does that translate to actually designing her own line? I imagine it will be a case of her telling some experts what she likes to smoke and getting them to simulate it for her. Maybe I’m being cynical, and I don’t mean to be as Rihanna is cool as, but in all honesty, who cares? If I find myself in Colorado in 2016 then I’ll give MaRihanna a go…
Apparently the MaRihanna line - set to come out in Jan 2016 - contains different types of marijuana flowers including flavours like Karibbean Kush, Haitian Haze and Jamaican High Grade.
“MaRihanna by Rihanna is truly the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world and proud to be a pioneer,” Rihanna said, while speaking at the Cannabis Cup in Negril, Jamaica. “Marihanna is blazing a trail for the industry.”
Now, I kind of hate the fact she referred to herself in the 3rd person here, but that aside, backing marijuana so publicly is a bold move.
Also, to balance out the cringe factor of referring to herself in the 3rd person (yes, it really bothers me) here is a moment of unparalleled cool by the Popstar, where she rolled a spliff on her bodyguard’s head.
