Actor and musician Steve Van Zandt is launching his personal line of hashish merchandise, Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary, reports Rolling Stone.

“The United States may be the only country in the world that considers health care, both physical and mental, as an afterthought,” Van Zandt shared in an announcement.

“Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary was created to help combat that issue by focusing on natural, holistic remedies. Some will help relax you, some will help energize you, all will help you take charge of your own wellness.”

Van Zandt expressed a need to extend schooling round hashish and reduce the stigma that has plagued its consumption for many years. In doing so, Van Zandt hopes to “stop unjust criminalization for a plant that not only does a lot of good but has proven during COVID-19 to be almost as essential as art to people’s well-being and quality of life.”

Ten p.c of income from Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary gross sales will probably be put towards the National Organization for Marijuana Legalization.

Canna Provision outlets in Lee and Holyoke Massachusetts would be the unique carriers of Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary hashish pre-rolls which will probably be made with hand-grown high-CBD, low-THC craft hashish from Canna Provisions.

“You don’t have to smoke cannabis or even use it to support national legalization,” mentioned Meg Sanders, Canna Provisions CEO. “But for those that do use it, Little Steven wanted to be sure to have an approachable, low-THC and high-CBD cannabis that is less about the recreational high, and more for people seeking the benefits of cannabis and cannabinoids like high-CBD cannabis on the body and mind.”
