The Total Annihilation of Life as We Know It

Introducing Mr. Tusk and White Walrus

white-walrus-mr-tusk
 
Partnering with A24 Films, we are celebrating the release of Kevin Smith’s new film TUSK in a very nontraditional way. Keying in on the director’s admission that the film “was born in a blaze,” TWBE has created packaging inspired by the film for two rebranded strains of medicinal marijuana. Named ‘Mr. Tusk’ and ‘White Walrus’, and available through September 26th, these strains of pot have been grown by Kushman Veganics as “Veganic Chernobyl (GT)” and “Kens OG” for Buds & Roses, one of Los Angeles’s oldest and most respected dispensaries. Accompanying this in-store promotion, limited edition herb grinders bearing the Tusk logo will be given away to patients of the dispensary and fans of the film (18+ years of age). And what would all of this be without a user-generated contest? Starting September 10th and running until the release of Tusk on September 19th, we’ll be asking fans to submit to instagram their best pictures of #WalrusBreath, which is most easily described as “the act of creating tusks by blowing smoke or vapor out of one’s nostrils.”
