“Big Papi Pot,” or Papi Cannabis as it’s more commonly known, hit the market this week. Let’s see what all the smoke is about.


The timing on all of this is perfect, of course. Last weekend, David Ortiz was enshrined in Cooperstown, NY at the Baseball Hall of Fame. If you missed all the hoopla, we have a bunch of pics and his speech here. It’s worth checking out, as Papi was all smiles, just as you would expect. And he showed plenty of love to the Red Sox–his teammates, his coaches, the fans–during his induction speech. There was plenty of Pedro in the mix, too. Then, days later, we have this.

Sorry, it’s not actually called that. It’s just fun to say it that way. It’s Papi Cannabis, and the story, according to their website, goes like this: “Papi [is] an exclusive new line of premium cannabis products that are as authentic and reliable as “Big Papi” David Ortiz himself. Borne out of his passion for performance, the Papi brand reflects David’s belief in the flow of the flower and its ability to help you live your best life. “Cannabis has helped me relax, sleep better, manage stress and heal physically,” says Ortiz. “I look forward to sharing Papi Cannabis and my personal journey to help people understand all its benefits.”


The Papi product is aptly named “Sweet Sluggers.” The one-gram blunts are rolled right here in Massachusetts, at Rev Farms in Fitchburg. And they’ve already rolled them out at dispensaries throughout the Commonwealth. That list is here.


So what’s your take? Will you take a swing at Big Papi’s new line of cannabis? I’ll be honest, I was a bit surprised to see Ortiz go this route, but the more I think about it, the more sense it makes. You do you, Papi. Keep it mellow.
