We sat down with Xzibit to talk about all things cannabis
Founded in March of 2020, Napalm Cannabis Co. has expanded rapidly under the direction of it’s founder, recording artist, actor, and cannabis entrepreneur, Xzibit. Having founded Brass Knuckles back in the early days of California’s 215 era, he knows what it takes to scale a cannabis enterprise and has replicated that original success with his newest venture.
