The Georgia rapper has partnered with the Green Street Agency to launch his own weed business, called the Gas Cannabis Co. 2 Chainz is offering three strains of weed: Octane 93, Octane 89, and Octane 87.
“When you seek high performance, the 93 line is the highest octane GAS on offer. It’s a high quality, super premium GAS. With the signature deep aroma, 93 will keep your engine running smoothly,” the brand’s website states.
Octane 89 is “supercharged and powerful, but a smooth ride. When you’re looking for the most affordable GAS, the 87 line of products is a high quality GAS, that won’t break the bank.”
All varieties are available in pre-rolled joints and 3.5 ounce packages that come in gas cans. 2 Chainz posted images of his product in two videos on Instagram. Customers can check out his merchandise at his cannabis store located in Van Nuys, California.

2 Chainz Launches Premium Marijuana Brand
2 Chainz has been rapping about “that gas” longer than most rappers have been dropping bars, so it’s only right he now has his own certified collection of marijuana-infused baked goods for sale.
On Monday (Oct. 29), Tity Boi revealed news he teamed with Green Street Agency to launch Gas Cannabis Co., which is a brand carrying three different strands of premium weed named after octane levels you would find at your local gas station. The 87 line is described as being “the most affordable,” while the 89 Gas line caters those who want a “supercharged and powerful” but a “smooth ride.” Then there’s the 93 line, which is naturally the highest quality.
“I know quality GAS by the look, the feel, the smoke,” 2 Chainz says, referring to the acronym that stands for “good ass shit.” “GAS stands for one thing, and you’ll know it when you experience it. It’s top-end, but at an affordable price, because I want everyone to be able to understand that GAS is the real fire.”
All three strains are available in pre-rolls or 3.5 oz. packages. According to the official press release, concentrates, topicals and edibles will be available for purchase soon as well.
Gas Cannabis Co. is currently housed at the Westside Station dispensary in Van Nuys, Calif. Alan Spiegel, who serves as co-owner of the cannabis shop, is happy to be teaming with Mr. Chainz.
“Working with 2 Chainz is a natural fit for our company, he is a true connoisseur,” he says. “We are elated to join forces with such a colossal cultural figure, and look forward to the partnership ahead.”
In other news, 2 Chainz’s latest track, “Bigger Than You,” was certified gold by the RIAA on Oct. 4. The single, assisted by Quavo and Drake, received a hilarious video accompaniment in September, with kid-versions of the rapper starring in the visual.
