September 25, 2019 0 Comment

Celebrities and the World of Cannabis – The tie between Hollywood and the cannabis industry runs about as long as the silver screen itself, despite the stigma surrounding marijuana for decades. 

Today as cannabis becomes increasingly legal in many states, celebrities are flocking to invest in this booming business venture. The marriage of celebrities and canna business is a match made in heaven as they usually come with a built-in, or potential fan base for not only themselves but the product as well. 

Celebrities are also able to shift the stigma surrounding cannabis by grouping it into their own personal brand, helping alter the mindset of the “harder to reach” generations. Here are a few celebrities dipping into the ever widening world of cannabusiness.
