Snoop Dogg is also a long-time cannabis entrepreneur. In 2015, he co-founded the media organization Merry Jane, which focuses on news about cannabis, and launched a new line of cannabis products called Leafs by Snoop offering a range of flowers, concentrates, and edibles.
“Snoop’s vast global following, industry influence and network reach will provide us an invaluable resource for Seedo as we continue to grow. The synergy between Seedo’s products and Snoop’s platforms is truly natural,” Levy added.
“Seedo creates cost savings and the opportunity for all people to benefit from agricultural technologies,” added the rapper, a mega-star and cannabis advocate whose marijuana use is a big part of his public image and his music. In 2012, when Snoop Dogg was briefly known as Snoop Lion, he told a Reddit audience in an AMA – ask me anything – post that he smokes about 81 blunts per day.

Snoop Dogg – whose hits include the track “Smoke Weed Every Day” – said: “Promoting a healthier lifestyle by providing my friends and communities with products that allow for growth in unused urban spaces is something I’m all the way down with.”

Founded in 2013, Seedo developed a fully automated and controlled indoor growing device, resembling a mini-fridge, for pesticide-free agriculture markets with a first focus on cannabis but with wider applications. The product analyzes growth and optimizes conditions for cannabis and other plants for home and commercial use. Monitoring occurs via smartphone app.
And in an interview last week, he revealed that he employs a full-time “blunt roller” who he pays between $40,000 to $50,000 per year, and whose sole responsibility is to prepare Snoop’s preferred marijuana delivery system.
Industrial Hemp is an agricultural commodity that is cultivated for use in a wide range of products, including foods and beverages, personal care and cosmetics products, nutritional supplements, fabrics and textiles. Also yarns and spun fibres, paper, construction and insulation materials – supplementary manufacturing goods. Hemp can be grown up as a fibre, seed, or another dual-function crop. Conversely, Hemp is also from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa, as marijuana.
Shifting Customers Preferences Towards Organic Healthcare Pet Products
Country prospects: In the United States, Hemp production has seen a resurgence in the past several years. High prices for hemp products are obsessed primarily by the need to produce CBD and increase plant relatives to other crops. Producer interest in hemp production has driven mainly by the potential for high returns from sales of hemp flowers to be processed into CBD (Cannabidiol) oil.
In 2018 Farm Bill was approved, Hemp has categorized under the same regulations that covered cannabis, Hemp's psychoactive cousin, since the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937. Congress explicitly approved in 2018 the shift of hemp derivative products across state lines for commercial or additional purposes. The bill also lifts limitations on the transportation, sale or possession of hemp-derived products.
The overall benefits from Industrial Hemp Growth Trends will create room for players and its market will grow with a staggering CAGR of 17.58% during 2020-2027.
