Celebrities in the Herb Business

Rumors swirled that Rihanna had officially done the least surprising thing Rihanna could ever do: launched her very own line of dry herb products.

But RiRi fans were left to contend with excruciating disappointment when her publicist told The Cut that the stories were “completely untrue.”

Though the “B—- Better Have My Money” singer (and notorious herb lover) may not be among them, there are plenty of celebs that have ventured into the business of dry herbs and dry herb accessories.

Below, find some of the most famous faces working to give you the munchies:

Melissa Etheridge
After using medical herbs following her 2004 breast cancer diagnosis, Etheridgecreated a line of cannabis-infused wines. “It helped with the psychological effects of being on chemo and trying to understand what’s happening to you,” the singer told CBS News about using the drug medicinally. Etheridge turned to Greenway Compassionate Relief, a dispensary in Santa Cruz, California, to join her in creating the “passion project.” “You feel a little buzzed from the alcohol and then get a delicious full body buzz,” she’s said about the wine’s effects.

Nick Lachey
Lachey is part of an ownership group that would have been one of 10 able to grow the herbs in Ohio had the herb legalization initiative passed on Nov. 2. The former boy-bander’s group contributed $4 million to the legalization campaign but ultimately failed to sway voters. “Ohio is my home, and as a resident and local business owner I am proud to be part of a movement that has the potential to create jobs, reinvigorate the local economy and improve the safety of our communities,” Lachey said in a statement prior to the vote. “Passage of this proposal will result in much-needed economic development opportunities across Ohio, and update the state’s position on herbs in a smart and safe way.” For now, Lachey is still waiting to make his drug farm dreams come true.

Willie Nelson
Smokers in states that have legalized dry herbs will soon be able to partake in Willie’s Reserve, the Nelson-created line of herbs. “It’s just a matter of time in this country before it’s legal. I feel like I bought so much, it’s time to start selling it back!” the singer told Rolling Stone about deciding to get into the business. “I will make sure it’s good or it won’t be on sale. There should be a menu just like in a restaurant because there are so many different kinds of pot that do many different things. It’s a good idea to have everything labeled for what it does, what it don’t do [and] how powerful it is.”

Wiz Khalifa
“It was cultivated based on my taste preferences, my high preferences,” the rapper said about his strain Khalifa Kush in an interview with Al Lindstrom. “I think the appeal of pot for me is the togetherness of it because when you get herbs the first thing you do is share it,” he continued. In case you had any doubts about Khalifa’s affection for the drug, he cleared it up during an appearance on Chelsea Lately: “I like to be really, really high.”

Snoop Dogg
The rapper might just be the celebrity authority on the pot business. His herb line, Leafs by Snoop, went on sale in Colorado earlier this month, and his herb-friendly venture capital firm Casa Verde Capital has invested in Eaze, a California startup that aims to provide medical herb doorstep delivery. The longtime kush fan also helped create Merry Jane, a “pot culture, business, politics and health” site, and sells a sizeable collection of accessories including rolling papers, vaporize and joint cases.
