Jerry Garcia’s free-thinking personality and counterculture vibe is the inspiration behind a new cannabis line that’s launching next month. Garcia Hand Picked (GHP) is a collaboration between the late singer’s family and Holistic Industries, a private multi-state cannabis operator in the U.S.
The officially-licensed partnership launches with three strains of flower, in addition to pre-rolls and guitar-shaped edibles. The products will be available in California dispensaries beginning in November. Those living out of state can still get a piece of the collection with Garcia-branded apparel and accessories.
While the Grateful Dead singer was known to be a proponent of marijuana, those close to Garcia have said that he rarely smoked weed by himself. Instead, it was more of a social interaction, whether after a show, on the tour bus, or in the recording studio. “A joint became a bridge between him and those around him,” explains Trixie Garcia, his daughter and spokesperson for the Garcia family.
Trixie Garcia says the family wanted to release a cannabis line to honor her father’s longstanding advocacy for the legalization of weed, while giving fans something new to celebrate Garcia’s spirit and legacy. The family says it wanted to create a “spontaneous [and] harmonious” cannabis experience to “bring people together in the way only Jerry could.”
