The estate of “Quiet Beatle” George Harrison is working with a cannabis manufacturer to develop a line of weed products under the “All Things Must Grass” brand name.
Working with Harrison’s estate is a win for Dad Grass, who sells pre-rolled joints, CBD, and other marijuana-related paraphernalia
All Things Must Grass is a pun on Harrison’s debut solo album All Things Must Pass, the acclaimed 1970 collection of songs that was his first release after the Fab Four disbanded.
The album includes memorable Harrison hits such as “My Sweet Lord”, “I’d Have You Anytime”, “Wah-Wah”, “If Not For You” and the album’s title track of the same name.
The company’s website has a page dedicated to the capsule collection. It includes photos from the famous shoot at Harrison’s Friar Park estate that resulted in the iconic album cover featuring Harrison sitting in a chair surrounded by gnomes.
“George Harrison is the definition of ‘classic,'” Dad Grass co-founder Ben Starmer said Forbes.
“The music he made was both contemporary and timeless.”
Starmer, who co-founded Los Angeles-based Dad Grass with Joshua Katz, added, “Our humble little weed brand has only been around for a few years, but our dream is that one day, 50 years from now, people will do similar things.” tell us.”
Katz told Forbes he felt “privileged” to be able to use images of Harrison — and the gnomes that graced his album.
“Being able to bring the gnomes, who are almost as present on the ‘All Things Must Pass’ album cover as George himself, to life with the blessing of the estate is an example of how we’ve translated that daunting privilege into something fun and lighthearted,” he said.
“Hopefully George would have liked a mixture of awe and playfulness.”
Harrison, whose post-Beatles career included stints as a solo artist and filmmaker, died of cancer in 2001.
Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney remain the only surviving Beatles. John Lennon, McCartney’s songwriting partner, was murdered in New York City in the fall of 1980.
Fans of the terrifying Liverpool quartet were given a glimpse into the fading days of Beatlemania with the recent release of documentary Get Back on Disney Plus, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Peter Jackson.
