Following his cross-career memoir, Unrequited Infatuations, actor and musician Steven Van Zandt launches Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary, his own line of cannabis products.
“The United States may be the only country in the world that regards health care, both physical and mental, as an afterthought,” Van Zandt said in a statement. “Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary is designed to combat this problem by focusing on natural, holistic remedies. Some will help you relax, others will help you recharge your batteries, and all will help you take control of your own wellbeing. “
Unfortunately, you’ll have to travel to Massachusetts – Lee and Holyoke in particular – to purchase any of Van Zandt’s products. Weed is currently legal in this state. Van Zandt also expressed a desire to increase awareness and reduce the stigma of weed products – and hopes that this will “stop the unjust criminalization of a plant that not only does a lot of good, but turns out to be almost as important during Covid-19 has proven “. as art for the well-being and quality of life of people. “
Ten percent of the profits from Little Stevens Underground Pharmacy sales go to the National Organization for Marijuana Legalization.
“You don’t have to smoke or use cannabis to support national legalization,” said Meg Sanders, CEO of Canna Provisions. “But for those who did use it, Little Steven wanted to be sure they had an accessible, low-THC, high-CBD cannabis that was less about the recreational high and more about people seeking the benefits of Cannabis and cannabinoids like high-CBD cannabis on body and mind. “
