The former Red Sox slugger’s new business is a line of cannabis products coming soon to Massachusetts dispensaries.

Fresh off of his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, David Ortiz is launching a new venture: Papi Cannabis, a line of cannabis products which will be available at some Massachusetts dispensaries beginning this month.

Papi Cannabis is created in partnership with Rev Brands, a cannabis manufacturer and wholesaler in Massachusetts. Papi Cannabis products will be available at three Revolutionary Clinics, located in Cambridge and Somerville, as well as leading recreational dispensaries in the Bay State.
