Soulja Boy can’t say he was the first to do this one. The legendary Chicago hip-hop artist, who claims to be the first rapper to do many things, has finally hopped on the fast-moving train that is legal cannabis. A “train” that already has plenty of celebs and rappers onboard: Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, YG, Quavo, Travis Scott, and many more rappers as well. On July 19th, Grizzly Peak, an indoor cannabis brand, and Soulja Boy announced that they’re teaming up to launch the rapper’s own weed brand. Going by Soulja Exotics, this brand will sell premium weed accordingly packaged as 3.5 grams of flower.
The first strain goes by “Grease Runtz”
The first Soulja Exotics strain is an indica by the name of “Grease Runtz”. The premium quality strain is reportedly “completely dark, dense purple flower covered in trichomes; created using proprietary genetics exclusive to Grizzly Peak.” Soulja Boy certainly made a great choice partnering with Grizzly Peak on this venture. The California-based cultivators are also known for their premium indoor-grown and pesticide-free cannabis flower.

Soulja Boy speaks on his excitement working with Grizzly Peak. “For years, I’ve been looking for a premium cannabis company to bring my product to market. Grizzly Peak grows their medicinal quality cannabis indoors, shrouded in coco fiber, which gives it a smooth inhale and exhale.”

He further explains, “After trying many of their products, [I’m] convinced that these guys are top growers who can consistently deliver the type of high I have been looking for. It was easy for me to decide to launch my exclusive, limited quantities of my weed products in collab with Grizzly Peak.”
Soulja Exotics by Soulja Boy and Grizzly Peak is now available
“Grease Runtz” is available at this instant in select California dispensaries. Presently, those dispensaries are STIIIZY, Harvest House, Long Beach Green Room, Cookies, and Stinky Leaf, and Firehouse. It has been released in limited batches so interested consumers are encouraged to act quick.
