Two Scottsdale residents — one with a weed-friendly club in downtown Phoenix and another with a pot-focused clothing line — are mixing cannabis with blockchain to grow their businesses.
George Gebran, who owns and operates breakfast joint U.S. Egg with his family, is building a cannabis community within his real-world NFT social venue Club Fomo east of downtown Phoenix. Zack Maita’s Mary Jane SmokeWear, a Best of Phoenix 2022 award winner, is bringing NFTs to his weed-centric clothing line. It’s all very Web 3.0.
“I believe that NFTs will play a major part in the marijuana culture because a lot of NFTs are now dropping music behind it,” Gebran told Phoenix New Times. “And when you drop that music behind the image of the cannabis, people want to look at it; it’s in the background. It’s inevitable that it will creep into the industry.”
But wait, what’s a blockchain? How about an NFT? Let’s sort that out first.
