The first-ever cannabis vape collaboration from musical legend The Grateful Dead with G Pen launched on October 17, 2023. The sleek blue and red tech offers consumers a celebratory vape device for both Dead Heads and enthusiasts alike. The handheld G Pen Dash vape combines the band’s iconic imagery with Grenco Science’s coveted dry herb, reusable vaporizing innovation.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally bring this dream collaboration to fruition with The Grateful Dead,” says Chris Folkerts, CEO Grenco Science, the company behind both the G Pen and Stündenglass’s innovative product lineups. “For over 10 years, we’ve been working towards this moment and it’s a true honor to create products for their devoted fans.”
This is historic since the band has never formally worked with any vape or glass company. Its par for the course at Grenco, as they often collaborate with artists across the industry spectrum. “The Grateful Dead’s music has transcended generations and has touched so many lives, including mine,” says the CEO. “I first discovered the band at the age of 16 and now, as a father, I can enjoy their music with my own family. My favorite mornings are the ones where we blast Dead and dance around the kitchen.”
“This collaboration is a huge accomplishment for our team and me personally. We were beyond excited to create innovative products that stay true to the essence of the Grateful Dead and their incredible legacy,” says Folkerts. Consumers can expect a Grateful Dead Stündenglass and more products from the brand in the coming months. The Grateful Dead X G Pen will continue to unveil co-branded product offerings featuring iconography from the Grateful Dead archives.
Founded in 2012, the celebration of cannabis culture has been a part of Grenco Science’s core ideology. Its deep roots with artists and musicians have added unrivaled artistry to both the G Pen and Stündenglass lines, demonstrating the company’s dedication to elevating cannabis through artful and musical collaboration. Past collaborations include Mike Tyson’s Tyson 2.0, Cookies, Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang, Dr. Greenthumb’s founder B Real, and more.
