If you could make some extra money selling some­thing that you love to help oth­ers, wouldn’t you do it?

It wasn’t even a ques­tion for a few hip hop artists that have advoc­ated for and pro­duced their own CBD and can­nabis products.

While they still have their main gigs pro­du­cing and per­form­ing music, mak­ing a bit of rev­en­ue through CBD products is some­thing fun they can all do on the side.

Products that con­tain CBD are on trend right now, likely because of the bene­fits they seem to offer users. They can help with anxi­ety, reduce pain from arth­rit­is, and help curb crav­ings to aid in weight loss.

In addi­tion to their many uses, CBD products can also be inges­ted in a vari­ety of ways. Some users prefer tak­ing it as a cap­sule while oth­ers enjoy drop­ping the oil under their tongue.

The use­ful­ness and ver­sat­il­ity of the CBD products on the mar­ket have con­vinced a few prom­in­ent hip hop artists to take a chance on the industry.

What Are CBD products?

CBD oil is a com­mon way to find and ingest CBD, though it is not the only option. CBD edibles are also a more fun way to feel the effects of the sub­stance.

Add a few drops to a batch of cook­ies or find CBD can­dies that have the same effects.

While CBD oil might be what people say, some­times CBD tinc­ture is what they mean. Tinc­tures might be some people’s pre­ferred meth­od of tak­ing CBD because it usu­ally has a bet­ter taste and high­er potency than just oil.

Accord­ing to CBD Kyro, users need just a small dose to feel its effects. It can be placed under the tongue, mixed into foods, or simply rubbed on the skin where there is pain.

It might be worth tak­ing the time to get to know all the dif­fer­ent CBD products before decid­ing just which one will work best for you.

Snoop Dogg

Hip hop cul­ture is often asso­ci­ated with marijuana and smoking, and Snoop Dogg might be one of the most com­monly known names tied to all of these.

Unsur­pris­ingly, he cre­ated his own line of can­nabis products called Leafs by Snoop. Through this plat­form, he sells a vari­ety of marijuana products as well as some CBD products to the pub­lic.

He star­ted his com­pany in 2015 in Den­ver, Col­or­ado, where marijuana products are com­pletely leg­al. Now, his products are dis­trib­uted in Canada because of a part­ner­ship with Can­opy Growth Cor­por­a­tion.

Snoop’s com­pany does dis­trib­ute both CBD and marijuana-based products, so it is import­ant to under­stand the dif­fer­ences between the two.

CBD is extrac­ted from plants in the can­nabis fam­ily, where marijuana and hemp also come from. This is why so many people are unaware of their dif­fer­ences and often think CBD is a drug like marijuana is con­sidered.

Accord­ing to Daily CBD Magazine, marijuana con­tains THC, which is the com­pound that res­ults in the high after tak­ing it. CBD does not con­tain much if any, THC and so does not lead to a high feel­ing.

For those look­ing to pur­chase products from Leafs by Snoop, make sure it is the sub­stance you are look­ing for to get the cor­rect bene­fits from using it.

Soulja Boy

Well known for his catchy songs, Soulja Boy has also taken a bite out of the CBD profits. He partnered with Bespoke Extracts to cre­ate his own line of CBD products after being an advoc­ate for the sub­stance for years.

Bespoke Extracts spe­cial­ize in hemp-derived CBD products that Soulja Boy began co-pro­du­cing with the com­pany.

His huge fol­low­ing on social media made Soulja Boy the per­fect advoc­ate for a newly mar­keted product. He could talk about his own exper­i­ence with CBD to make it real for every user.

Soulja Boy was excited to join in with the busi­ness because of how wide­spread CBD use is becom­ing.

Wiz Khal­ifa

Anoth­er artist tak­ing a dip in the CBD industry is Wiz Khal­ifa with his brand Khal­ifa Kush Enter­prises.

He makes a profit off of can­nabis products along with a few CBD oils that are geared towards those who aren’t as inter­ested in the THC effects. Many users prefer CBD oils over marijuana-based items depend­ing on their desired use.

Accord­ing to I Am Hip Hop Magazine, Wiz Khal­ifa is a big name in music. He head­lines fest­ivals and leads his own tours, defin­ing his pop­ular­ity.

With pop­ular­ity comes a respons­ib­il­ity to do what is best for fans and fol­low­ers. By cre­at­ing his own trust­worthy products, fans can rely on him to alle­vi­ate the struggles they use the products for.

Mak­ing music and mak­ing CBD products are both ways Wiz Khal­ifa is able to appeal to the pub­lic.


A user and believ­er in CBD products him­self, RiFF RAFF is using his exper­i­ences to help bene­fit the pub­lic.

As a tour­ing per­former, he deals with chron­ic pain that gets in his way when he is trav­el­ing for months at a time. CBD has helped him get through the dif­fi­culties and he is now advoc­at­ing for oth­ers to use it.

By part­ner­ing with bio­M­D­plus, the artist has attached his name to CBD in a pos­it­ive way. They seek to edu­cate people about the pos­it­ives of CBD use for the vari­ous bene­fits that it offers.

Pain relief and relax­a­tion are wel­comed in the lives of people who are con­stantly on the go. RiFF RAFF is help­ing the pub­lic real­ize just how help­ful CBD can be in pro­du­cing these.

Dr. Dre

Don’t worry, the Doc­tor is also get­ting involved! Dr. Dre is one of the most pop­u­lar names in the hip hop industry and he is now seek­ing to make waves in the CBD world as well.

While he might not really be a doc­tor, he does know how CBD can help the body. He used to be a med­ic­al marijuana user but switched to CBD products to help with his dia­betes.

Dr. Dre works with Hemptiff products to increase aware­ness of what they can do for users.

The CBD industry is boom­ing and hip hop artists want to take part in it. These pop­u­lar artists are advoc­at­ing for CBD and its bene­fits to lead to a bet­ter soci­ety.
