Rub of the green: our picks for future New Zealand weed brands

Marijuana has been legalised or decriminalised in a number of countries and states and a whole heap of entrepreneurs and savvy marketers have jumped on the hashwagon. In fact, some commodity traders have called marijuana ‘the next coffee’, such is its potential as a consumer good. In New Zealand, it may not be too long before the same thing happens, with those wacky-backy-loving liberals from Labour close to letting medical marijuana through in some form and a number of local go-getters are ready to light the fuse and fly high. It seems like a slippery, smoky, skankin’ slope to a free-market free-for-all (and, according to Family First, the inevitable downfall of society). So, given this likely shift, here are some brands that might soon exist.

With taxis on demand and now Uber Eats, Doober's durries in a hurry is the next logical step.

New Zealand is the world's third largest Kiwifruit producer. Is it time for a new marijuana-infused variety?

But wait, there's more:

  • Land of the long white cloud: cloudy, with a chance of munchies.
  • Bud Light: The low-carb buzz. 
  • Blazed as: Smokin’ to the east. 
  • Smoke & Smog: A high feast.
  • Herbs: get a real slice of heaven. 
  • Ombudsman: Take all your complaints away.
  • Grassfed: edibles with extra bite.  
  • And a range of location-specific strains: Danknedin, Taradaki, Potueka, Hashburton, Tokearoa, Bongariro.

Feel free to add your suggestions for future weed brands and we will send the best efforts a $50 bag.
