Time is Money

The 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was set in place to prohibit the federal government from imposing excessive bail, fines, or cruel and unusual punishments. But unfortunately, it’s not always upheld, and individuals, like Rick Wershe Jr. aka “White Boy Rick”, are overly criminalized for non-violent drug crimes.

Flower

Each strain deemed worthy enough to find its way into an 8th pouch has been meticulously pheno-hunted and hand-selected by Rick himself. All flower is grown indoors in a “Class C” facility, using pesticide-free methods. This means every batch of flower you buy is not only guaranteed to be potent, but pure.

5 Premium Pre-rolls

When it comes to pre-rolls, a lot of companies cut costs by using trim, aka scraps. Rick wanted nothing but the best. That’s why The 8th pre-rolls are made using the same premium flower sold in our pre-packaged pouches. Each pre-roll is perfectly balanced, so they are easy to pull and burn evenly.

Vape Carts

For those that would rather celebrate The 8th differently, our premium distillate vape carts are a great go-to. All The 8th vape carts are made using premium flower, in a state-of-the-art extraction facility located right outside Rick’s hometown, Detroit, Michigan. Like all of The 8th products, our vape carts are tested with strict standards and only in state-certified testing facilities.

Rick wershe jr.

Rick Wershe Jr. (aka “White Boy Rick”) was recently released from prison after serving over 32 years for non-violent drug offenses allegedly committed while he was a minor. As such, his life story is a prime example of the overly harsh penalties levied against victims of the decades-long “War on Drugs”.

The 8th

In addition to providing premium cannabis products, The 8th aims to raise awareness and bring justice to those who have been wrongfully incarcerated. Our slogan, “Time is Money”, acknowledges the immense damages owed to such persons. A portion of all proceeds will go towards righting these wrongs and helping our local communities.

Slide 1
In the community

We are committed to supporting those in our communities who have been affected by the “War on Drugs”, through volunteer efforts, like local food drives, and gathering to help raise awareness.

Slide 1
Prison reform

In partnership with Pleasantrees and their Social Equity program, we are continuously advocating for legislative reform aimed toward the release of those incarcerated for cannabis-related crimes, as well as the mass-expungement of criminal records regarding cannabis offenses.

Cultivation

Pleasantrees Facility

The 8th has exclusively partnered with Pleasantrees to grow and produce all “The 8th” products. Pleasantrees is a fully vertically intergraded, privately held, multi-state operating cannabis brand that started in Michigan back in 2018. Rick joined forces with Pleasantrees not only because of their ability to cultivate quality flower, but they aligned with his brands’ values. Rick was quoted as saying, “One of the things that sold me about Pleasantrees was their criminal justice reform that they were already working on. So, when they started talking to me, it was kind of like a hand fitting the glove perfectly.” For more information on Pleasantrees, click the link here.
