Introducing GEN!US – a smart, new cannabis brand designed specifically to help unlock the creative potential within us all. Today, GEN!US debuts a product collection of top-shelf flower, pre-rolled joints, vaporizer pens and cartridges in a full range of THC and CBD. GEN!US is curated intentionally to aid the thinking process, open neural pathways and break down mental barriers for today’s modern cannabis connoisseur.
There are countless historical and modern geniuses who have used cannabis behind the scenes for decades. GEN!US is on a mission to tell their stories. Given today’s constant pressure to innovate, come up with new ideas, and think “outside the box,” GEN!US is the cannabis solution that enhances creativity. GEN!US is not a title, but an untapped destination within us that is waiting to be unleashed.
GEN!US exists at the intersection of legacy and modern cannabis. The brand is created by creatives for creatives, and uses renowned research teams, microbiologists, chemists, engineers and cannabis veterans, while partnering with world-class growers. It owns operations in cultivation and manufacturing, state-of-the-art extraction facilities, and will open a boutique dispensary in the heart of Los Angeles on Melrose Ave in September.
Led by 25-year-old CEO Chris Clifford, who started his first company when he was just 17, GEN!US embarks on an exciting path to develop state-of-the-art products that foster the flow state and unlock the “genius stream,” where new ideas can emanate uninhibited by conventions and mental blocks. “Cannabis has fueled some of the world’s most gifted innovators and artists in their creations. They inspire us to create cannabis on their level,” says Clifford.
Clifford and his roster of cannabis industry veterans are joined by thought leaders from the tech, spirits, fashion, literature, arts and entertainment industries. Every aspect of the brand, down to the bold hues of GEN!US’ sleek packaging design, are led with an art and fashion lens embracing the enlightened territory reached through cannabis use. Product campaigns have been photographed by noted artists Maggie West, Daniel Forero, and Justin Jerrod playing on color, composition and the artistic shapes of smoke.
