About Tommy Chong's Cannabis
As one-half of the legendary comedy duo Cheech & Chong, Tommy Chong helped pioneer a completely unique brand of comedy directed at the counter-culture movement of the early '70s. At the heart of this brand of entertainment was cannabis. On-screen and off Tommy became a vocal advocate for his favorite herb. In a time where cannabis had to be talked about in whispers, Tommy was a loud voice for the advocacy movement, working tirelessly to destigmatize the use of this healing plant. With the legalization of recreational cannabis, Tommy's voice continues to ring out loudly, touting its benefits and place in society. Now, Tommy is thrilled to share that passion and knowledge of cannabis with the rest of the world. Using his lifelong connections in the industry, he has made it his personal mission to share the very best product available with his fans and fellow herb connoisseurs. If anyone knows weed, its Tommy. And now fans of comedy and cannabis alike can experience the strains and products that Tommy himself has hand selected.
