Chemesis International Inc. signed a multiyear licensing deal with Kevin Smith and Jason Mews, also known as Jay and Silent Bob.
The trio will work together to develop and promote cannabis products in the United States (US). These products include flowers, oils, extracts, pre-rolls, cones, edibles, and other consumer products for recreational and medicinal use.
They plan to launch the products in the first quarter of 2019.
Smith is a filmmaker, actor, comic book writer, author, and podcaster. He wrote, directed, co-produced, and starred in the comedy film Clerks, which brought him to the spotlight as “Silent Bob.” Mews rose to fame through his character called Jay in the same movie.
Both characters returned to the screen in follow up films created by Smith including
Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Clerks 2, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
“Kevin Smith is many things to many people,” said Edgar Montero, CEO of Chemesis. “To us, he is one of the most prolific content creators of our generation and the foremost authority on all things comedy, comics, and super fandom. His fans respect him because he views the world with a critical eye for excellence and authenticity, but he also is able to sit back and enjoy the moment. What better way to enjoy the moment than with our products, and what better critics to assure their quality than Kevin and Jay.”
Smith and Mews have a strong social media presence with 12.4 million followers on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Chemesis will issue stock worth $400,000 based on the five-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) on November 13, 2018. They will pay an additional $150,000 in stock based on the five-day VWAP every year.
