LAS VEGAS, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tryke Companies, operators of Reef Dispensaries in Nevada and Arizona, announced today that they have signed a partnership with multi-platinum selling rapper Wiz Khalifa's global cannabis brand Young, Wild & Free to commercially grow his signature strain Khalifa Kush. The strain will soon be readily available at Reef Dispensaries and beyond. A limited release of the product was made available at all current Reef Dispensaries locations. The first run, advertised only to Wiz Khalifa's social media followers, sold out in less than 24 hours.
"It just shows what an exceptional brand Wiz has in the cannabis space," said Tryke CEO Matthew Morgan. "We are very excited to be working together, we couldn't ask for a better partner or a better product. We have much more Khalifa Kush on the way."
Khalifa Kush has been something of an urban legend in the cannabis community. Developed over the course of years under Wiz's direction, it has thus far been available only in small batches popping up primarily at dispensaries in California. Tryke, with more than 165,000 square feet of cultivation facilities in Nevada and Arizona, is the first to grow the strain at a commercial scale. It will then be sold as part of Tryke's Exotics by Berner line, a selection of premium strains acquired through the company's partnership with Bay Area rapper and cannabis entrepreneur Berner.
Reef Dispensaries serves patients at its five locations in Nevada and Arizona. Offering exclusive brands, including "Tryke Exotics by Berner", paired with concierge customer service, Reef is setting a new standard for the medical marijuana industry.
Tryke Companies is a network of nine MMJ licenses for the cultivation, production and retail sale of medical cannabis in Arizona and Nevada. Tryke retail operations, d.b.a Reef Dispensaries, has existing dispensaries in the greater Phoenix area, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Sparks, and Sun Valley, Nevada, with additional locations coming soon.
