Houseplant, the Canadian cannabis company co-founded by actor Seth Rogen, is launching this month in the United States.
“If you know anything about me at all, I am going to assume it’s that I really love weed”, Rogen said in a Twitter video Monday morning.
The “Pineapple Express” and “Knocked Up” actor announced that Houseplant’s marijuana flower and ceramic home products will launch in California cannabis dispensaries next week.
Houseplant was founded in May 2019 and is partly owned by Canopy Growth Corporation, a Canadian cannabis conglomerate that has signed deals with major names like Snoop Dog and Martha Stewart.
The Toronto-based company currently offers strains of dried flower cannabis, softgel capsules and pre-rolled joints in stores across Canada.
Almost ten years I go, I envisioned having my own weed company. And today I can say that my company Houseplant's weed will be available in California next week! Also, Houseplant is making lovely Housegoods like ashtrays, lighters, and YES, even ceramics. https://t.co/TNjpWFhbWB pic.twitter.com/00xR8QKNH3— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) March 1, 2021
The Houseplant website crashed Monday afternoon shortly after Rogen shared the news with his over 9 million Twitter followers.
Representatives for Rogen, who is Canadian-American, did not immediately respond to a NBC News request for comment. Canopy Growth Corporation also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Actor Mindy Kaling tweeted her congratulations to Rogen about the announcement. “Making me want to buy weed! And use it! Everyone wants to see a paranoid Indian woman tweetin away at 7pm…”, she wrote.
Of course, as a smoker for years I was mainly interested in the different strains around the world. But the moment I have dealt with this topic more closely, I wanted to know what positive side effects weed brings. Which varieties help against which diseases & symptoms. And does weed really makes you addicted?
