Erykah Bud-u: R&B Singer Announces Strain in Partnership with Cookies

December 16, 2022 · Celeb Stoner

R&B singer Erykah Badu is branching out into cannabis with a new strain that will be exclusively available at Cookies stores starting in Caliifornia.

She discusses the Limoncello variety grown by Mad Cow Genetics and the partnership with Cookes co-founder Berner on YouTube. In the nine-minute promotional clip, Berner describes Limoncello as a “sativa leaner” that’s a cross of Lemonnade, Cherry Pie and Jet Fuel Gelato.

“The first time we demoed it, we had one spliff, no tobacco,” Badu explains. “We each hit it two or three times and we were like comatose. But then, the next time we did the experiment, we each hit it one time and we had such a wonderful experience.”

Berner: “That’s some tropical funk right there.”

Badu: “It’s really nice and natural. That’s what I like about it.”

Berner: “It don’t taste like anything else. This is player weed… It’s a happy high.”

Badu: “It gets you through the day and you’re not zooted.”

Berner then lights up a joint of Limoncello and passes it around.

Badu has a long career as a recording artist, starting in 1997 with Baduizm, which featured her first hit single, “On & On.” She also scored a hit with “Bag Lady” in 2000, but hasn’t released a new album since then.

The Dallas native is known for her unconventional views. In 2018, she made comments about Hitler that upset Jews and others. In a contentious interview with New York magazine, Badu stated: 

“I’m a humanist. I see good in everybody. I saw something good in Hitler.”

Startled, David Marchese responded, “Come again?”

Badu: “Yeah, I did. Hitler was a wonderful painter.”

Marchese: “No, he wasn’t! And even if he was, what would his skill as a painter have to do with any “good” in him?”

Badu: “OK, he was a terrible painter. Poor thing. He had a terrible childhood… I know I don’t have the most popular opinions sometimes.”

Marchese: “But don’t you think that someone as evil as Hitler, who did what he did, has forfeited the right to other people’s empathy?”

Badu: “Why can’t I say what I’m saying? Because he did such terrible things?”

These comments preceded rapper Kanye “Ye” West and NBA star Kyrie Iriving’s recent statements about Jews and Holocasut denial by several years.

It’s an unfortunate trend and certainly has no place in cannabis. (Full Story)
