Behind The Brand: Garcia Hand Picked, Jerry Garcia’s Legacy

The family of Grateful Dead's lead guitarist and vocalist is keeping his legacy, perfectionism, and love for cannabis alive.

California’s cannabis history is vast. As the first state or legalize medical marijuana in 1996, California’s cannabis culture was paved long before it started gaining legal status, thanks to musiciansrappers, and icons who praised the plant.

This niche cannabis community wouldn’t be complete without Jerry Garcia, the lead guitarist and vocalist of Grateful Dead. The San Francisco-born musician was quite open about his cannabis use and became a coveted piece of the counterculture while pumping out hit after hit.

Although he passed away in 1995, Garcia’s legacy lives on. His family launched Garcia Hand Picked, a brand that immortalizes Jerry’s perfectionism and love for weed with carefully curated strains hand-picked by the Garcia family.

See below for more information about the brand and where to snag their premium quality strains.

Behind The Brand

One of Jerry Garcia’s daughters, Theresa, aka Trixie, notes on the brand’s website, “People trust us to make the right decisions. We’ve hand-picked the best possible partners for the brand and my dad’s legacy.”

Trixie, Annabelle, and Sunshine were given a blank canvas to create a brand that Jerry would be proud of. They carefully curated their lineup of strains, using original and unique genetics worthy enough of their own song.

So, the family partnered with expert and honorable cultivators and joint rollers to ensure you get the highest possible quality products that Jerry would use himself. Here, you’re invited to experience the transcendent combination of cannabis and music, something Jerry Garcia knew all about and was keen to share with others.

Garcia Hand Picked not only strives to honor the legacy of Jerry but to help you reconnect with everything beautiful in this lifetime. But, most importantly, they want to help you have fun.
