HistoryEdit

Leafs By Snoop was launched in November 2015 in Denver, Colorado, at the home of LivWell owner John Lord, a few months after the website Merry Jane was launched.[1][2][3]

In June 2016, it was reported that Snoop Dogg was in a trademark dispute with Canadian ice hockey team the Toronto Maple Leafs over his Leafs by Snoop logo.[1] By 2018, the Leafs By Snoop products were distributed in Canada through Canopy Growth Corporation, though the Canadian government had warned about celebrity endorsements of cannabis products.[4] In February 2019, the Toronto Maple Leafs confirmed they had filed an intellectual property lawsuit.[5]

DescriptionEdit

Leafs by Snoop offers 8 products[6] :

  • Indica dominate: Bananas, Northern Lights, Cali Kush and Purple bush;
  • Sativa dominate: Lemon Pie, Blueberry Dream and Tangerine Man;
  • High CBD strain called 3D CBD.

Flowers are sold in eighth, quarter and 1-ounce packages.

The Atlantic noted that the carefully designed packaging by Pentagram has been designed "to make marijuana appeal to upscale consumers."[7]
