Jimi's Medicated Macaroons Named High Times Flavor of the Month
The family of the legendary musician brands a Californian edibles line
The latest in a string of celebrity cannabis-brand launches, Jimi's Medicated Macaroons contain about 25mg of THC, with various flavors bearing the names of classic Hendrix tunes. Purple Haze is really blueberry, Foxy Lady is stuffed with strawberry, Fire is a red cookie flavored with wild cherry, and so on, for a rainbow of 12 different flavors in all. Each gourmet meringue cookie sandwich is filled with infused butter cream, creamy ganache or sweet fruit jams for a delicious psychedelic experience every time.
Created by Purple Haze Properties, a partnership between Hendrix's brother Leon and Andrew Pitsicalis, Jimi's Medicated Macaroons represent just one part of a diverse licensing venture that includes packs of pre-rolled Purple Haze joints from California's Finest, featured a resurrected version of the classic 60's strains.
Jimi's Chocolate Line
We noted last year that a Seattle-based equity firm is planning to market "Marley Natural" brand cannabis in states where it is legal. Now it seems guitar god Jimi Hendrix is to be thusly immortalized.
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Toronto-based Nutritional High International Inc. announced this week that it has "entered into an exclusive licensing agreement…under which the company may manufacture and distribute various marijuana and hemp-based edible products using the song titles and bearing the likeness of iconic guitarist Jimi Hendrix."
The products in question, to be marketed under the Edible Experiences banner, include "Purple Haze" and "Stone Free" lines. (There's already a Purple Haze cannabis strain developed by Dutch growers, although the song was more likely about the LSD experience.) In a cute twist, the "Stone Free" line is to be preparations infused with CBD—the cannabinoid that is thought to have medicinal value but doesn't actually get you stoned.
These will be "hemp oil-infused products, including gummy bears, hard candies and health and energy drinkable products." The company also plans to market a line of psychoactive edibles, "Jimi's Cannabis Collection," in conjunction with Purple Haze Properties, a U.S. company that works in collaboration with Hendrix's brother, Leon. Purple Haze Properties will independently launch other cannabis products and Hendrix-branded cafes in "major marijuana markets" in the U.S.
Both lines are set to be launched by the end of this year in Colorado.
However, Experience Hendrix, the family-run company that oversee the Hendrix estate, is not involved in Nutritional High's upcoming product line.
"This has nothing to do with Experience Hendrix, LLC, the legitimate Hendrix family-owned entity which administrates intellectual property associated with Jimi Hendrix," Bob Merlis, longtime spokesman for Experience Hendrix, said. "I'm going to forward this notice to them, as they are quite vigorous in enforcing their rights."
Nutritional High assured the Union-Tribune that they are in the clear legally. But we're reminded of the acrimony between the Marley estate and the reggae legend's former bandmates over the "Marley Natural" product line. The Union-Tribune notes that country music giant Willie Nelson is also planning to market his own line of cannabis and cannabis-related products, Willie's Reserve, and to sell them in his own chain of pot shops. But a living star launching his own enterprise is one thing. Cashing in on the legacy of departed musical and counterculture icons is something else.
