Today, we were in Las Vegas and stopped in at Inyo Fine Cannabis Dispensary to unload a few dozen Pink Box donuts to Rob Ruckus and the hard working budtenders that selflessly serve the valley. While visiting with staff and customers, eating donuts and comparing strains, Afroman called from Salt Lake City, Utah. Do we call him back from a quiet place? Of course not. This has all the personality and comfort of a busy barbershop on a Saturday afternoon. With some big things in the works including his new strain Palmdale Purple which is being cultivated by Nevada’s own High Sierra Holistics and the introduction of his new alcoholic beverage Cold FRO-T-5, we had plenty to talk about.
Bill: Yo, I’m at the dispensary. How about we do this right now? Can we Facetime and do the interview here?
Bill: Ok, this is the best way to do an in interview. You are live with the staff and customers of Inyo Fine Cannabis Dispensary. Where are you at right now?
Fro: I’m in Salt Lake CIty, Utah on a layover.
Bill: How are you feeling?
Fro: Real good. Larger than life!
Bill: Right on. That’s a nice gold chain, is there anybody else dressed like you there?
Fro: (looks around) No.
Bill: Where does your style come from, you had to be rocking something crazy since before your Colt 45 days?
Fro: It’s really just being a soul brother. It ain’t my style, it’s just a soul brother style. It’s the older brothers I got it from. Just how to be cool, ya know.
Bill: Did you cultivate your style pre-cannabis or because you got high?
Fro: Pre-cannabis. But I must say that after I got high, I added some very interesting details. Ya know, the chain.
Bill: The chain got thicker, the beard got longer and the hair got nice and fluffy. Whoa, show me that weed chain!
Fro: (Smiling and holding chains and rings)
Bill: Nice, those are sharp! Okay so, Nevada is beginning to regulate and distribute cannabis alongside alcohol. As a licensing guy representing several brands, do you see yourself as more of an alcohol distributor or a cannabis ambassador?
Bill: Is it an even 50/50?
Fro: No. I’d say 60/40. Bud.
Bill: Bud meaning buds, not Budweiser?
Fro: Correct, not Budweiser.
You’d get arrested for drinking Budweiser in my neighborhood! We drink Cold FRO-T-5. It’s my beer and it’s available now in the midwest and expanding. Look for that coming up in Nevada.
Bill: I believe in that theory. I can’t be 50/50, bud/liquor. I’m not much of a drinker, if I pound a beer when you visit, I probably already did ten dabs so it’s still 90/10 for me.
Fro: Right on. Right on.
Bill: If I drink a lot of beers there is a recovery period and I don’t like the recovery period. When you use alcohol and bud together in a normal day, is there a recovery from liquor or does the cannabis help you?
Fro: I smoke bud more than I drink beer because bud is easier on me. When i’m ready to go hard, when I’m ready to party, I enjoy both. You know, like, a dab a day!
Bill: Do you think there are medicinal benefits to alcohol?
Fro: It’s a disinfectant, like for your breath…
Bill: Hey, who is that standing there talking to you?
Fro: That’s a fan here to say hello, Jung Fish is his name.
Bill: Hell yeah, let’s say hi to one of your Nevada fans too, fan to fan. Hey dude, you wanna talk to afroman?
Inyo Customer: No way man! Tall cans? Afroman? Hey I used to tattoo to your jams 24/7, people loved it!
Bill: On that note, let’s have these guys sell you some weed. What kind of strain are you interested in?
Fro: I always prefer anything OG.
Bill: What other projects do you have going on? Any weed projects.
Fro: We are featuring the Palmdale Purple which is being grown over at High Sierra Holistics. It’s heavy headed indica hybrid of Grape Ape & OG Kush. It’s good for sleep and pain as well.
Bill: Nice. I like a sleeper indica. When are we going to taste the Fro-G Kush you are working on?
Fro: It’s growing right now. That’s a one hitter quitter right there. You go night-night, you go bye-bye!
Bill: Hit us with a pairing, what’s the best bud to smoke with a Cold FRO-T-5?
Fro: Fro-G Kush of course.
Bill: What do you roll up in?
Fro: Frigg Fraggz blunt wraps. I used to use Swishers and these are like Swishers but ready to go, without removing the tobacco.
Bill: Since we are in Nevada, do you gamble and if so, what is your game?
Fro: I like to gamble and
Bill: Do you play chess
Fro: Yes, ghetto chess. I like to talk shit while I play chess! We are not gonna play no classic chess. When I come to Nevada, I’ll give you an option, we can play gentlemans chess or we can play hood chess.
Bill: I want to play hood chess for sure, you can be shirts and I’ll be skins.
Fro: We’ll be smoking and talking shit mostly.
Bill: We can’t wait to have you out here. Thank you for doing this quick interview on Facetime with all our friends.
Fro: For sure. I look forward to seeing that Palmdale Purple and Fro-G Kush in those Nevada dispensaries when I visit!
Bill: Absolutely! Thanks again and safe travels!
