Dancehall artist Popcaan is on the verge of becoming a major employer in Jamaica’s growing cannabis industry as he will partner with Dr. Julius Garvey in a cannabis tea venture which is slated to launch for retail on March 1. Reports Dancehall Magazine
The initiative is a partnership between Unruly and Nassential Farm, Nassential’s CEO is Dr Julius Garvey, son of the late Marcus Garvey. The tea will be produced at a 200-acre farm in St. Thomas which will employ dozens of individuals.
We have big plans for this cannabis initiative, and we are only just getting started. A facility is being built that will be an on-the-job training ground for cannabis farmers, making them fully qualified with educated experience,” Popcaan told the Jamaica Observer.
“It will be in St Thomas, of course. It’s a 200-acre goldmine. This will be a tourist attraction, both indoor greenhouse and outdoor plantation. People will fly into Jamaica just to visit our farm and take pictures. It will be an entire experience to remember,” he continued.
Popcaan says the product will be available for the global market.
“It will be available online at The Unruly Shop for worldwide shipping and definitely Kingston, Jamaica; we will announce all locations — worldwide and locally. Currently, we are only offering wholesale purchase,” he said.
