Entertainer and cannabis entrepreneur B-Real sits down with Leafly’s California editor David Downs to discuss his life through the lens of his favorite cultivars. Prepare to mash down on the gas in the debut episode of the new season of The Hash podcast, powered by Leafly.
The Hash, Season 4, Episode 1: Cypress Hill’s B-Real.
Bona fide rap god B-Real of Cypress Hill doesn’t start with a light, CBD-rich sativa in the morning. For him—it’s “straight to that gas,” slang for pungent, high-THC chronic.
Listen along as West Coast rap royalty details his lifetime top-five strains to Leafly’s California editor David Downs in the season premiere for a new Leafly-powered news and lifestyle podcast, called The Hash.
The weekly, scripted podcast’s guests this season include New York state Sen. Diane Savino, drag queen Laganja Estranja, and Mimicking Birds’ Adam Trachsel.
A ‘Fresh Air’ for cannabis, each potent Hash episode is co-hosted and produced by award-winning journalist and bestselling author David Downs and Max Savage Levenson (Pitchfork, NPR).Outta Gas?
Strains Mentioned in This Show
Rapper B-Real helped set the tone of West Coast rap and hip-hop as a member of Cypress Hill. The platinum and multi-platinum-selling group will go down in history as a leader on cannabis law reform and culture. This fall B-Real launched the Dr. Greenthumb adult-use cannabis shop in Southern California, stocked it with his own line of INSANE cannabis products, released a new Cypress Hill record, Elephants on Acid, and continued his long-running web series B-Real.TV.
