Ahead of Cypress Hill’s new album, Elephants on Acid, the group announced a joint venture with Bhang Corporation to form Cypress Hill Bhang (CHB) in a recent press release. Specialty cannabis items will be sold exclusively through the Bud.com delivery service, and CHB glass skull jars and stash boxes will be available at select California dispensaries.
The products include a 1/4 oz. skull jar with a Cypress Hill bucket hat and filled with Cherry Bomb or Zookies strain, and a cassette tape-looking stash box with 6 Premium Pre-rolls available in two styles and filled with Mendo Breath indica strain.
For Cypress Hill, the crystal skulls represent more than just a gimmick. “Legend has it crystal skulls are a form of computer which are able to recognize energy and vibrations that occur around them.” DJ Muggs said. “The skulls have the ability to pictorially replay all events or images of the people who have come in contact with them (i.e. they contain the history of our world). Based on this legend, Cypress Hill and Bhang joined forces to create CHB.”
The CHB skull jar made an appearance on Cypress Hill’s music video for the song, “Crazy.”
Cypress Hill was a pioneer in the sense that the group was among the first to openly embrace cannabis long before it was socially acceptable. Cypress Hill’s B Real was featured on the cover of first issue of CULTURE.
Scott Van Rixel, CEO of Bhang, was pleased to announce the joint venture. “We are proud of the Bhang-Cypress Hill collaboration,” Rixel said. “It has successfully resulted in products that reflect the band’s identity and vision. Every other week some group or entertainer approached Bhang wanting to license themselves and it was the same story, wanting us to give them money to use their name. Cypress Hill’s cannabis agent came to us with a different approach, however. They wanted to be instrumental in the creative process and wanted the products to be dope (no pun intended). The results speak for themselves.”
The products went on sale on Sept. 30.
