GRiZ Takes Home Silver At 2015 Cannabis Cup With GRiZ Kush

Fresh off the heels of his new album Say It Loud, the Funk maven scored 'high' at Denver's Cannabis Cup earlier this month, placing second in the 'People's Choice Flowers' category.


For those that don't know, GRiZ only recently announced his very own strain of marijuana just in time for 4/20, appropriately named “GRiZ Kush.” It's not a regular feat for an artist to release a killer dance music album and (apparently) a killer, self-titled strain of weed.

GRiZ treated the event's attendees to his musical talents as well, performing a surprise celebratory 4:20pm set at the Native Roots booth.

The mary jane connoisseur told Billboard, that his personal strain was created in partnership with Colorado dispensary chain Native Roots, with the collaboration originally proposed by Native Roots owner Rhett Jordan.

On his Facebook page, GRiZ also unveiled a limited time partnership with all Native Roots dispensaries in Colorado, allowing his fans to receive a $4.20 gram joint just by saying “get the funk down.”
