Today, longtime cannabis advocates, and popular California lifestyle music group Slightly Stoopid announce the official launch of their cannabis, spirits, and health + wellness brand Stoopid Organics. Inspired by the band’s long-term respect for the benefits of cannabis, Stoopid Organics aims to deliver top quality, carefully curated and sustainably manufactured cannabis products and limited edition collaborations that provide recreational and medicinal uses and healing properties. Featured Stoopid Organics products currently include two grow-at-home seed selections, a Full Spectrum Hemp Oil tincture (CBD-A), and high-end pre-rolled “infused” marijuana cigarettes. Additional products will continue to be announced along with an online “general store” web-portal pointing consumers and fans to regional product locations, product descriptions, and special contests and merchandise.
The band garnered the attention of Billboard in particular in 2017 when Slightly Stoopid’s Stoopid Records, and Silverback Music’s Controlled Substance Sound Labs label joined forces with vinyl mastering guru Gil Tamazyin’s Capsule Labs, and hash purveyor Rodney Lockwood, to pioneer the first EVER smokable 12” “vinyl” record made entirely of pure hashish. The “hash vinyl” was etched with the grooves of the jazzy, stoner-friendly Slightly Stoopid instrumental single “Dabbington” (from the band’s Meanwhile Back At The Lab LP), and the project became the first and only audio recording in history to be pressed directly on pure cannabis source material, with the ability to extract audible sound. This landmark stunt – originally intended to promote legalization, and the ancillary benefits of a still federally illegal substance – was a one-of-a kind unprecedented endeavor.
To Slightly Stoopid, marijuana represents freedom and emphasizes the larger environmental and social issues that impact society. With Stoopid Organics, Slightly Stoopid continue their efforts in raising awareness for the medical benefits of cannabis and expand their participation in supporting cannabis law reform and responsible commercialization.
