Now you can get high and listen to a made up language sung by “post rock” band Sigur Ros. Hopelandic, the band’s “invented language, is a form of gibberish vocals, functioning as an instrument made to fit the music. Now the band has another treat to go along with their tunes.
Sigur Ros, the Icelandic musical outfit, is launching their own brand of weed edibles. Having teamed up with California-based cannabis edible brand Lord Jones, Sigur Ros’s “Wild Sigurberry” gumdrops are infused with THC and “inspired by the flavors of foraged Icelandic berries.”
The medicated Sigurberry gumdrops will be available in select dispensaries throughout California and online for delivery. They come in five different dosage options, including five, ten, and 20 milligrams of THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, a dose of pure CBD, a non-psychotropic cannabis compound, and a 5:1 ratio of CBD to THC. The gumdrops also come in multiple berry flavors, including strawberry, blackberry, and blueberry. The packaging for the gumdrops was designed by Andrew Rae, from Moonhead Studios, who’s done work for the Foals, VICE, the New York Times, and other media entities.
To celebrate the collaboration, Sigur Ros and Lord Jones are hosting a “sound bath” at NeueHouse, an events and culture center in Hollywood, on April 18. Guests will be able to sample the gumdrops and experience the band’s multimedia performance, which will include sound, film, and virtual reality.
Experiences like the one on Tuesday are “designed to guide listeners on a journey of self discovery and inner exploration, promoting deep relaxation and peace, expansion of consciousness, and help to open the body’s entire energetic system,” according to the Soundbath Center.
This isn’t the first time a celebrity name has been attached to a cannabis product. Last year, Whoopi Goldberg teamed up with edibles chef Maya Elisabeth to launch a line of cannabis products for menstrual cramps, called Whoopi & Maya. Snoop Dogg is behind cannabis media outlet Merry Jane, while Damian Marley is working to transform a defunct California prison into a cannabis farm.
So whether you want to zone out, getting stoned out of your mind listening to Sigur Ros’s ethereal, trippy tunes, thematically eating their branded gumdrops, or even if you don’t know the band but are looking for a new edible experience, here’s your opportunity. Keep in mind the Sigurberries will only be available for a limited time.
