Bone Thugs-N-Harmony member Stanley “Flesh-N-Bone” Howse has partnered with a medical marijuana dispensary in Otisville, Mich., to create a new strain of medical marijuana.

A small medical marijuana shop, the Green Oasis, has partnered with the Grammy-award winning musician to cultivate and distribute a new strain of medicine to Flint-area patients.

“We worked closely together to figure out what we wanted out of the medication,” Green Oasis owner Anthony Butler told M Live.

Mr. Butler said the strain, called “Phifty Caliber Kush,” has a noticeable floral taste and is a very effective pain reliever, M Live reports.

The two men had been wanting to get into the medical marijuana industry for some time when they were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. The partnership will allow them to cultivate and distribute marijuana and seeds from the new strain.

Mr. Howse hopes “Phifty Caliber Kush” can provide relief for qualified patients and he’s proud to be a part of a “paradigm shift in the culture” of medicinal marijuana, according to Rolling Stone.
