Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung’s Merry Jane digital media cannabis company has teamed with eOne Music to release the first-ever commercially available song composed from sounds extracted from a cannabis plant.

“Sticky Situation,” by producer FrancisGotHeat (Drake, Roy Woods, Bryson Tiller) and R&B singer Anders, both from Toronto, and featuring Los Angeles-based rapper Rich The Kid, was made using the Sticky Situation strain and a technology called MIDI Sprout.

The two-and-a-half minute track and extended version for the video (with more blips, buzzing, trippy sounds and samples by director Elliot Clancy Osberg), were released on Oct. 17 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of cannabis legalization in Canada.
