Curaleaf, the world’s largest cannabis operator, announced that its Select brand is launching a vape pen in collaboration with Belushi’s Farm, available exclusively in Oregon. Select will release the limited-edition product with the famous Captain Jack’s strain, grown exclusively on Belushi’s Farm and featured in the new reality series Growing Belushi on The Discovery Channel.
“After working to perfect his strain, which has roots in Afghanistan’s 4,000-year-old traditions, Captain Jack is working with Belushi’s Farm and Select to turn this legendary strain into oil,” said Jim Belushi. “This strain has never been tweaked in a laboratory or compromised, making it a perfect match for Select’s unparalleled quality. And, I can say it’s likely it has inspired many historic comedy sketches throughout the mid to late ’70s. Thanks to its long and storied history in the halls and offices of 30 Rock, we call Captain Jack’s strain ‘the Smell of SNL.’”
The launch of the Captain Jack’s x Select vape pen comes on the heels of Belushi’s new Discovery Channel television show, Growing Belushi, which gives viewers a peek behind the curtain of Belushi’s cannabis cultivation operation in Oregon.
In response to the ongoing wildfires that have devastated Southern Oregon and displaced more than 42,000 residents, Curaleaf Oregon, Select, Jim Belushi and Belushi’s Farm have joined forces with a coalition of local cannabis companies to create the Jackson County Fire Relief Fund. Together, the coalition has pledged to raise $420,000 for the United Way of Jackson County, where funds will support the recovery of those affected in Jackson County, home to many of Oregon’s premier cannabis and hemp companies.
Curaleaf has cannabis dispensaries in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, and Oregon.
