American cannabis producer Chemesis has penned a deal to get one very funny man onto their line of cannabis products.
Famed director, comic book writer, and Vancouver Film School alum, Kevin Smith, along with his longtime on-screen companion Jason Mewes, have signed a deal that will bring their alter-egos – Jay & Silent Bob – into the US’ legal(ish) cannabis market.
Chemesis International, which is listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange (CSE: CSI) but operates a 20,000-sq-ft manufacturing facility in California, announced the new partnership with Smith at the MJBizCon in Las Vegas last week.
Smith made his own reveal over Instagram.
“Jay and Silent Bob are selling weed in real life!” he wrote, “This January Jay and Silent Bob’s Private Stash debuts in every weed-legal state and every weed-legal store they can lean against.”
“The green is spectacular.”
The timing for this partnership is ideal according to Chemesis, who said that Smith’s latest installment of the Jay & Silent Bob movie franchise is due out sometime next year.
“We’ve been looking to partner with people who have a lot of leverage and are very prominent in the cannabis community,” said Ranbir Kalan, from Chemesis’ Investor Relations. “He’s a great filmmaker, he comes with a great legacy behind him, so this partnership brings great credibility in being a high-quality supplier of cannabis products.
“We didn’t see a downside to it.”
