Seth Rogen is about to light up into the Canadian cannabis industry.
Rogen and screenwriter Evan Goldberg have joined forces with Canopy Growth to launch Houseplant, a new brand of recreational cannabis in Canada.
According to a release announcing the partnership, “Houseplant is the result of years of experience and dedication, with each element and expression thoughtfully designed to make it easier for people to learn to love cannabis as much as Houseplant does.”
Rogen says Houseplant is a “passion we’ve brought to life through drive and dedication.”
“Every decision we’ve made for the business reflects the years of education, first-hand experience and respect we have for cannabis,” Rogen added.
The first strain, Houseplant Sativa, will be available for purchase in early April 2019 through provincially regulated retailers and online in British Columbia.
The Houseplant Hybrid and Houseplant Indica strains along with softgels and pre-rolled joints will follow throughout the year, and will soon be available across all of Canada.
