Long time country singer and father to iconic popstar Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus has recently started selling his own branded black pack of pre-rolls called “Midnight Special.” Sold exclusively by Lowell Herb Co., the new line of pre-rolled joints is a sativa dominant hybrid blend of two potent strains, Banana Cream and Lava Cake.
The “Midnight Special” is available now in 350 marijuana dispensaries located in California and also by delivery throughout the greater Los Angeles area. According to the Lowell Herb Co. website, Cyrus’ product “is deliciously sweet with a citrus flavor profile. The high offers a state of relaxation while keeping the creative mind active.”
Last week, in a live-streamed 4/20 event hosted by Weedmaps, Cyrus advised viewers not to share smoking devices to avoid getting the coronavirus, saying, “Be a Bogart. If you care, don’t share. Don’t pass your joint or pipe around, it’s just not safe right now. Let’s all take a breather, chill out on 4/20 and jam to some new music. We’re gonna have a sociably conscious, safe good time.”
Cyrus has recently announced a new country music project called “Mama Kush,” the first single titled “Ballad of Jed” dropped just in time for 4/20. The cartoonish music video is hilarious and definitely worth watching; check out the original version for yourself. In a Tweet posted last week, Cyrus wrote, “I collabed w/ @LowellFarms to create #MidnightSpecial! This limited edition hybrid blend features Lava Cake & Banana Cream strains!" Cyrus’ daughter, Miley, originally famous for her Disney show Hannah Montana, has been an outspoken advocate in the pro-marijuana community.
Interestingly, Miley took a break from using cannabis back in 2017, however, Miley allegedly started smoking marijuana because of her mom, who “smokes a lot of weed.”
In 2018, Miley told The Fix, “My mom got me back on it. When I’m just working I don’t think I function at my highest, most intelligent, most being-able-to-be-as-aware-and-as-present, so I don’t smoke when I work.” Going on, said Miley, “My dad’s got a farm and she’s like “I’m just going to quit everything and grow.’ She’s my manager. So if my mom quits everything, that’s quitting me to go home and, like, grow weed. Which doesn’t sound like the best idea… My mom could barely keep us alive. She’s not going to grow pot.”
David Elias, CEO of Lowell Herb Co. told Variety, “It’s a time to acknowledge our industry’s progress, show appreciation for our community, and to celebrate our momentum towards ending prohibition. Sharing a joint is normally the way we celebrate 4/20.” Added Elias, “Sadly, we can’t do that this year, but we can share a log of other things, our stories, our playlists, our favorite books, our thoughts and emotions, sending well wishes and positive energy to those we love. We will get through this together.”
