Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. , a leading international provider of consumer products in cannabis, is proud to announce a first-of-its-kind strategic partnership between its Select brand and legendary music and culture authority Rolling Stone. Together, the leading lifestyle brand in cannabis joins the most prominent voice in music and pop culture to celebrate the symbiotic relationship between music and cannabis. The long term partnership leverages Select’s resources and experience creating progressive, industry-leading cannabis products alongside Rolling Stone, whose DNA lives at the intersection of music’s past, present and future.
The new line of co-branded Rolling Stone by Select products will include two product formats to start, including Select’s first-ever pre-roll, as well as “The Cliq,” Select’s newest proprietary pod system. Both formats will feature three strains and flavor profiles hand-selected by Rolling Stone to celebrate some of the most well-known and genre-defining artists and sounds in music history. The line includes a berry-forward “Overdrive” Sativa, complex and full-bodied “Reverb” Indica, and a fruity and calming “Phaser” Hybrid.
“Part of my job at Curaleaf is building brands people love. Select is a brand built around the relentless pursuit of progress, and going to great lengths to create the best possible experience for our consumer. This is a synergy we are honored to share with Rolling Stone. They are known for having one of the most authentic and discerning voices in modern journalism, and, as part of that, they’ve included cannabis in their coverage for the past 50 years – something many other publications are only just starting to do today. We’re honored and thrilled that the Rolling Stone team believes in our vision, our products and our people to create and deliver the highest-quality cannabis products and experiences in the industry,” said Joe Bayern, CEO of Curaleaf.
“Music and Cannabis go hand in hand,” said Rolling Stone President and Chief Operating Officer Gus Wenner. Rolling Stone has a legacy of celebrating this connection and a long history of reporting on the fight to legalize cannabis. “We are thrilled to have found a perfect partner in Curaleaf who gives us the opportunity to design a product that elevates the music listening experience and celebrates the deep connection between the two.”
Select’s commitment to enriching communities and creating inclusive, meaningful experiences and Rolling Stone’s world class storytelling and culture-defining content inspired the inception of a first-of-its-kind retail space opening in Las Vegas in 2022. Additional details on the space will be released in the near future.
In Nevada, Rolling Stone by Select products will be distributed through Select’s wholesale partners and at Curaleaf’s owned dispensaries, including Acres by Curaleaf and Curaleaf Las Vegas Boulevard.
