Michigan Cannabis Company Teams Up With Wiz Khalifa
A Michigan cannabis company has struck a deal with rap icon and superstar Wiz Khalifa to be the exclusive distributor of Khalifa Kush, the rapper's 6 year-old cannabis company. The deal includes the Grand Rapids location of Gage Cannabis at 3075 Peregrine Dr. NE.
Through this partnership, Gage will be the exclusive producer, processor and retailer of KK branded products in Michigan. Gage and KK will work to develop and commercialize a product lineup that includes flower, pre-rolls, extracts, and concentrates that will be sold at Gage provisioning centers.
"We are excited to partner with Gage for our first expansion into the Midwest, and to finally release KK to my fans in Michigan," said Wiz Khalifa. "From day one of Khalifa Kush, we have only partnered with people we align with, who focus on customer and quality over everything, and Gage is one of the best."
"Wiz is a globally-recognized cannabis connoisseur. KK has had incredible success in other U.S. cannabis markets, establishing a brand that is synonymous with ultra-premium quality," said Fabian Monaco, CEO of Gage. "We are confident that this partnership will allow Michigan to become a unique cannabis destination in the near future."
The arrangement includes a grant of license to certain intellectual property to produce and sell KK branded products in Michigan, and is subject to Michigan regulatory approval. KK will consult on cultivation, distribution, branding, consumer engagement and other operating responsibilities. The initial term of the license agreement is five years on an exclusive basis.
