Lil Wayne, who’s no stranger to the cannabis community announced today the launch of GKUA Ultra Premium cannabis, (pronounced juh-koo-uh).

Wayne’s brands offer a line of high-potency cannabis products that he hopes will provide consumers with the best high of their lives as GKUA claims its flower and concentrates contain some of the highest natural levels of THC available.

“I used to just want to get high, now I smoke to get inspired,” said Lil Wayne. “With GKUA, I’m sharing a feeling that I love.”

Aside from the products GKUA wants to be known as a lifestyle brand – assuming that lifestyle includes largesse, syzzurp and skateboards. GKUA will parlay Wayne’s fanbase into his cannabis customers. 

“The combination of our incredible products, market knowledge and commitment to quality, paired with the unmatched fanbase of Lil Wayne, creates an unprecedented opportunity to create a cannabis brand that values creativity and the artistic pursuit,” said Beau Golob, President and Co-founder GKUA Inc. “This is historic and really exciting,” says Golob.

As well as bringing cannabis products to market, GKUA will be offering their customers free tickets to the hottest party of the year. The first GKUA VIP party, featuring unique performances with Lil Wayne and Friends is scheduled for 2020.

At launch, GKUA Ultra Premium products will be available in select Los Angeles dispensaries with a larger roll-out across the state in 2020. 

GKUA’s proprietary battery technology contains a ceramic heating element and cutting-edge design, optimized to efficiently deliver vape in easily controllable doses while elevating the user experience. The battery technology is meant to be combined with GKUA Ultra Premium THC or CBD oil. 

Dispensaries will be giving away the first of a series of Lil Wayne + GKUA posters with every purchase of GKUA Ultra Premium products.
