Recently, I interviewed Matt Barnes about Smoke4ACure, his cancer benefit hosted by Snoop Dogg at the iconic rapper’s compound. There were performances, there were celebrities (yes, I saw Mike Tyson, and yes, I was afraid to approach him), and most importantly, there were various cannabis brands, products, and strains all over the place. If you’re in California, check your local dispensary for these products so you can party like the Doggfather himself.
Sticky Icky Cannabis

Sticky Icky is a cannabis production company out in California that specializes in high-quality flower and cannabis-infused syrup. While their syrup wasn’t available, I did get a chance to try their Gelato flower and it was super duper potent. They also produce other well-known strains like Animal Cookies and Blue Cookies. Guests were adequately stoned.
Seven Leaves/Matt Barnes Pre-Rolls
Seven Leaves is a cannabis production company out in Sacramento that grows pesticide-free cannabis. They have a plethora of products, but the most relevant of them was their Matt Barnes line of pre-rolls: Wake-n-Bake, Post Workout;,Happy Hour, and Loaded Dreams. I power-smoked them all and found them to be a pretty good mid-level tier product. I’d say the most purchase-worthy strain is Loaded Dreams—I smoked it and immediately went to sleep on the plane ride back to Seattle.
Banana Bros OTTO

Banana Bros is a cannabis accessory brand that makes the Otto, an automated cone-stuffing machine. They were onsite demonstrating it and I must admit, it’s a pretty cool product. Snoop’s son would agree, as he was so blown away he said, “This the future right here, bruh.”
Chuuuch Cannabis Pre-Rolls

Chuuuch is Bishop Don Magic Juan’s line of pre-rolls and vapes. The product they were giving away was their 3-pack of hybrid pre-rolls, which were definitely an unnamed daytime strain as I smoked two of them and didn’t really feel too stoned.
Koko Nuggz Chocolate

If you haven’t tried Koko Nuggz, you have to ASAP just for the novelty of them. Koko Nuggz are chocolate disguised as cannabis nugs. They’re super delicious, and because they contain no cannabis, you can order them online and have them shipped directly to your front door. Just imagine if you could do that with a fresh batch of Trainwreck.
Kurvana ASCND Vape Pens

Kurvana is a cannabis company that produces a vast assortment of vape pens. The ASCND is their premium pen line, and it features many strains. I had the Cosmic Glue, a good product that gives you a reasonably big boost of THC.
Liquidology CBD + Kava Stress Free Shot

Marketed as a de-stresser, Liquidology CBD + Kava Stress Free Shot contains no THC, but is still a worthwhile product. It tastes so damn delicious, I had to go back for seconds. Did it make me less stressed? Maybe—it was hard to tell when I consumed it after already being high as a kite.
