Cheech & Chong CBD cigarettes developed and manufactured at Hempacco’s San Diego facility
San Diego, California – Hempacco Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: HPCO) (“Hempacco” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated hemp manufacturing company, commenced sales of Cheech & Chong-branded hemp smokable products during the third quarter of 2022 under its previously announced 50/50 joint venture.
In January 2022, Hempacco entered into a joint venture agreement with Cheech and Chong’s Cannabis Company (“CCCC”). Hempacco debuted its initial line of Cheech & Chong-branded hemp smokables and hemp blunt wraps products, as well as a Cheech & Chong-branded kiosk vending machine, with Tommy Chong, at the Tobacco Plus Expo in Las Vegas in January.
Tommy Chong exclaimed, “Throughout my career, I’ve always been against cigarette smoking, and now I’m proud to release the next best thing to smoking cannabis, and that’s hemp!”
“We are thrilled to begin sales under this JV with Cheech & Chong,” said Sandro Piancone, Founder and CEO of Hempacco. “We are working with CCCC’s CEO, Jonathan Black, to develop several unique products, including three blends in smokables and our hemp blunt wraps, and look forward to ramping sales as we leverage Cheech & Chong’s well-known brand.”
“Attracting partners like Hempacco with great products is one of the many great outcomes of working with an iconic brand like Cheech and Chong,” said Black. “We are excited about the potential of this partnership and look forward to working together to develop and deliver more exciting products to the market.”
“Sandro and I always dreamt of working with Cheech & Chong,” said Jorge Olson, Co-Founder and CMO of Hempacco. “We thought from the very beginnings of Hempacco that a Cheech & Chong Hemp Smokable would be an incredible product, marketed to a baked-in customer base, and now we’ve brought that vision to reality.”
