Khalifa Kush

Wiz Khalifa first launched his cannabis brand back in 2015, aiming to focus on “high quality and highly sought-after products in legalized cannabis markets.”

The line offers flower, pre-rolls, vapes, edibles, and concentrates powered by proprietary genetics.

Going Back To His Roots

Expanding to Pennsylvania is a nod to Khalifa’s roots in Pittsburgh.

The rapper, born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, lived in Germany, England, Japan, and Oklahoma before his military family settled in Pennsylvania, where he attended Taylor Allderdice High School.

“It’s super cool to be able to sell KK legally in Pittsburgh and because they know it’s Wiz’s, it’s going to be bomb, of course it’s gonna drive the city and the state crazy,” said Khalifa in an official statement. “Trulieve is the perfect partner for us because of its commitment to providing the highest quality products and best possible patient experiences.”

A friend of Khalifa’s also took to social media to celebrate the news.

Something Worth Celebrating

A friend of Khalifa’s also took to social media to celebrate the news.

“Yo Wiz Khalifa literally used to get arrested for weed in PA and today in Pennsylvania dropped a legal medical marijuana strand,” wrote DJ Bonics in a tweet. “This is Poetic Justice. Congrats to Wiz and shout out to the KK!”

Wiz Khalifa Day

The brand’s official products were launched on Monday (Dec. 12) — a date that has also been deemed “Wiz Khalifa Day” by the Pittsburgh City Council.

During the pop-up event, the “Young, Wild & Free” lyricist greeted patients at the Trulieve Pittsburgh-Squirrel Hill and Trulieve Washington locations.

“Trulieve is excited to expand our partnership with the iconic Wiz Khalifa as an exclusive partner to curate and promote his unique product line exclusively in his home state of Pennsylvania,” said Kim Rivers, CEO of Trulieve. “As an artist, he has such a strong vision of how he wants to express himself. Together, we’ve created a line of products that offer best-in-class medical marijuana to Pennsylvania patients and represent the passion and creativity for which Wiz Khalifa is known.”
