Oklahoma-based medical marijuana company The Nirvana Group announced on Monday that it has entered into a partnership with Lover Yer Brain, the cannabis edibles firm founded by Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. Under the terms of the agreement, The Nirvana Group will cultivate and source the cannabis used to manufacture Love Yer Brain marijuana edibles, including the company’s signature human brain-shaped gummies.
Formed in 1983 in Oklahoma City, three-time Grammy Award-winning band The Flaming Lips released their latest critically acclaimed Warner Bros. Records album American Head in 2020. Based on Coyne’s memories of growing up in Oklahoma City, the album confronts love, drugs, and death from his uniquely creative perspective.
In an exclusive email interview, Coyne says that he has been in cannabis business since the 1970s, when he started selling pot to his friends at the age of 16.
“I was able to get the main dealer to front me like a quarter pound of pot. I had a motorcycle, a couple of electric guitars, I was selling marijuana and living in an apartment with my crazy girlfriend who had dropped out of high school after her father was killed in a car accident,” Coyne remembers. “I freely admit now that I was slightly oblivious to the hazards and violence that I luckily escaped.” [Read more at Forbes]
