Youngstown marijuana company shines light on local artists with special packaging
The Youngstown company that grows marijuana for the medical industry is shining a spotlight on Ohio artists by commissioning one of a kind packaging for their holiday products.
Every year, Riviera Creek creates a limited edition product for the holidays, and this year, their teaming up with Graffiti Heart artist Bob Peck to create specialized packaging.
Riviera Creek owner Brian Kessler says not only does this give artists exposure, but it helps the company set themselves apart from the competition-- which Kessler expects to increase, especially since Issue 2 passed.
"WE CURRENTLY GROW IN SEVEN ROOMS, SO IF WE'RE ADDING FOUR OR FIVE, THAT'S PROBABLY 50 TO 60 PERCENT GROWTH FROM WHAT WE'VE CURRENTLY BEEN DOING IN 2023," Brian Kessler, Riviera Creek's owner.
The limited-edition packaging is on sale now in dispensaries throughout the state, BUT if you miss it this year, Kessler says they plan to do more collaborations with artists in the future.
The live painting will be auctioned off this December for charity.
