Sigur Ros To Release "Wild Sigurberry" - A Cannabis Gumdrop Edible

Icelandic progressive rocker Sigur Rós have long had a reputation of delivering other-worldly soundscapes and twisting the expectations of their fanbase. Now the trio are venturing into another realm with a venture into cannabis edibles.
Teaming up with cannabis brand Lord Jones, Jonsi and friends have created a line of cannabis-infused medicated gumdrops. Their limited edition brand is called "Wild Sigurberry" and is inspired by the flavors of foraged Icelandic berries — namely wild blackberries, blueberries and strawberries.
For those of you with an eye on science — the gumdrops come in five dosage options: 10 and 20 milligrams of THC; the "Lord Jones' signature 5:1 ratio CBD to THC formulation" and pure CBD.
All of this is served rather nicely, and will be available as nine-piece boxes featuring a Sigur Rós crest designed by London illustrator Andrew Rae.
Available through the Lord Jones website and through select California dispensaries, the THC-infused varieties are somewhat limited. However, the pure CBD variety is available for nationwide delivery via the Lord Jones site.
On April 18th Sigur Ros and Lord Jones will be hosting a "Sound Bath" at Hollywood's NeueHouse. Attendees will be offered "Wild Sigurberry" samples prior to the sound bath, which will feature "multimedia collaborations from the band, including moments in sound, film and VR."
The Sound Bath Center describes such events as being "designed to guide listeners on a journey of self discovery and inner exploration, promoting deep relaxation and peace, expansion of consciousness, and help to open the body's entire energetic system."
Just last week, Sigur Rós kicked off a new string of dates on their intimate theater tour. They will perform April 13th, 14th and 15th at Los Angeles' Walt Disney Concert Hall, accompanied by the L.A. Philharmonic. Live streams of their shows have been appearing in Facebook feeds for those fans unable to make it out to the shows.
Seems like Sigur Ros are going that little bit further to help their fans really dig the sounds.
