Launching cannabis lines is all the rage these days. Hall of Famer David Ortiz is the latest in a string of celebrities who’ve launched their own line of weed. Ortiz’ line is called “Papi Cannabis” and will be launching at several Massachusetts dispensaries in August. According to Ortiz, he started using marijuana as a way to deal with the physical pain of playing baseball and to help balance his schedule. According to his press release: “Once I embraced the flow of the flower everything changed. Cannabis has helped me relax, sleep better, manage stress and heal physically after a lifetime of playing ball, and I look forward to sharing Papi Cannabis and my personal journey to help people understand its benefits.” The first product to be available in the line is called Sweet Sluggers which are pre rolled blunts with Ortiz’ favorite strains. He also revealed he worked with his daughter Alexandra on the artwork for the package. Following the Sweet Sluggers will eventually be vapes and edibles.
