Hip-hop artist Future may be launching a cannabis brand. Trademark attorney Clarissa Harvey on Twitter last week revealed the rapper’s legal team filed six intent-to-use trademark applications for “EVOL BY FUTURE” that would be used in connection with consumption lounge services, vape pens, and medical cannabis products.
The applications were filed on February 17.
The filing also includes a website that would feature “health information in the field of medical marijuana and cannabis.” EVOL is the name of Future’s 2016 album.
One of the applications outlines plans for a line of “herbal tinctures for medical purposes; medicated oils; medicated oral sprays, namely, medicated oral sprays for pain relief; medicated creams and lotions, namely, medicated pain relief creams and lotions,” according to the filing. Other applications in the filing are for a variety of smoking accessories, and clothing including hats and shirts.
None of the trademark applications associated with the filing have been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The applications were filed on Future’s behalf by Joel R. Feldman of Greenberg Traurig, LLP of Atlanta, Georgia.
Other rappers, including Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa, B. Real, Berner, Run the Jewels, Rick Ross, and Xzibit, have ties to the cannabis industry either as investors or with their own brands.
