Hart got deep into this new endeavor in a very Hartian fashion with Relixmagazine, showing himself to be a very enthusiastic cannabis user who has a deep connection to the product he’s getting behind.
Hart’s pre-rolls, which he refers to as “dog walkers,” are made from Chemdog, a strain with its own Dead-related history. He partnered with California cannabis brand Left Coast Ventures, who brought the actual Chemdog into the fold. Chemdog is credited with being “the man who first discovered the strain outside a Grateful Dead concert at Indiana’s Deer Creek in 1991 and later helped it go on to spawn famous strains like Sour Diesel and OG Kush.”
“It’s the great mother to many elite strains. Then it died out somehow. Now it’s having a gigantic comeback, because Chemdog is in business again. The story was so incredible, the circumstances of its birth on Shakedown Street—I couldn’t resist it,” he continues. “I follow strains, and when this came about, I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, this is it.’ I’ve been asked many times before, but this just seemed right. Chemdog itself is a very interesting product, because it appeals to vision, getting in the moment, getting in the zone—that’s where real art is created. It’s very energetic, very heady, clean and smooth. It’s a very fun strain. It’s inspirational for me. I use it in my work—and play. There’s so much adventure to it.”
