Who is hot and who you should watch

    Lots of celebrities have dipped their toes into the cannabis industry. Typically, they will do a licensing deal that allows cannabis brands to make a product and use that celebrity’s name, image and likeness for marketing. For this reason, you’ll often see limited-edition drops where a product is released once – you’ll never see it again.

    To spare you the heartbreak of a limited edition, consider some popular cannabis brands with products you can try over and over again.

    Heisman is the brand of football legend Ricky Williams. Flower advances and pre-rolls. Highsman markets its strains as Pregame (sativa), Halftime (Hybrid) and Postgame (indica).

    Mike Tyson: Tyson 2.0

    Tyson 2.0, formerly known as Tyson Ranch, was Mike Tyson’s weed brand. It contains flower, pre-roll, food, spray, and even mouth spray. Toad is the premium floral line.
