Hamilton pot grower signs deal with Jay and Silent Bob
A Hamilton based medical marijuana company has just signed a deal with a pair of Hollywood cult figures.
Beleave announcing it has entered into a brand licensing deal with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes better known on screen as Jay and Silent Bob.
The company says with help from the pair they will develop various strains of pot geared to the recreational market when cannabis is legalized next July.
In a release, Smith says “It’s no secret that I’m a fan of cannabis, it helps me sleep at night and keeps my blood pressure down. I’ve seen cannabis drastically improve the lives of some of the closest people in my life, and believe it could be a viable alternative to the use of traditional pain killers. This culminating with the changing laws and perception surrounding cannabis has me very excited to team up with Beleave, a group I believe to be one of the most innovative in the Canadian cannabis space.”
Beleave CEO Andrew Wnek, adding “It’s definitely going to be fun watching them take an active role in the space while developing strains together.”
A very successful 2017-2018 IceDogs regular season came to an end Saturday afternoon with a 6-3 win over Mississauga. A sellout St Patty's Day Meridian Centre crowd watched Niagara record their 35th win of the season for a total of 80 points in the OHL's Eastern Conference as Johnny Corneil lead the way with a goal and two assists.
Kirill Maksimov enjoyed a four point night while Johnny Corneil and Ben Jones each scored a pair in the IceDogs 6-3 Friday night win in Erie. With the win, Niagara has now secured home ice advantage in their first round playoff series with Oshawa.
Johnny Corneil scored the overtime winner exactly half-way through the extra period as the IceDogs prevailed 3-2 over visiting Hamilton for Niagara's fifth win in six meetings versus the Bulldogs. Stephen Dhillon was also big stopping 41 shots for the IceDogs fifth straight victory.
