Gum drops have never been so soothing now that Icelandic rock band Sigur Rós has its own line of cannabis gummies. The band's earthy, ephemeral tunes will be even more chill after the "Wild Sigurberry" THC-infused gum drops are released next week.
The group teamed up with cannabis retailer Lord Jones to create the medicated gum drops inspired by the flavors of the group's native Iceland, apparently known for its foraged berries, including wild blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. The Wild Sigurberry treats come in five THC and CBD (cannabidiol, a cannabis extract) dosages, so there's plenty of options. THC will get you high, but CBD not as much.
The edibles are a limited-edition offering and come in a fancy blue box with the Sigur Rós crest on the box. You can get a box of nine starting at $40. Because buying weed products isn't allowed in all states, but CBD products are, only a pure CBD version will be available nationwide. In California, select dispensaries will have the THC versions of the new product available for medical marijuana cardholders. If you live in another area where weed is legal, you can just order it online.
The candy's launch gets even better with the band and cannabis retailer hosting a "sound bath" in Los Angeles as part of Tuesday's product release. Tickets for the event already sold out, according to the band's website, so don't get too excited. Those lucky attendees will get to sample the gum drops beforehand "to enjoy a fully elevated experience" at the event with music, film, and virtual reality.
Looks like the rest of us will have to just set up a DIY sound bath. We'd kick ours off with the dreamy Svefn-g-englar.
