Lowell Herb Co., the country’s top-selling pre-roll cannabis brand, announces The Frank White Creative Blend, conceived in collaboration with Think BIG. Founded by CJ Wallace, the son of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace, Think BIG is a company leading a social movement challenging humankind to discover how cannabis can be used as a tool for curiosity, creativity, contemplation, and healing while advocating for criminal justice reform.

The collaboration between Lowell Herb Co. and Think BIG was born of a shared mission for social justice and a fundamental goal to herald in a new era where cannabis is no longer considered contraband, but a catalyst for creativity. Both companies are also passionately driven to remove stigmas that negatively influence public opinion.

Lowell Herb Co., known for their effect-based blended cannabis pre-rolls, has created The Frank White Creative Blend in collaboration with Think BIG, specifically for creative inspiration. It is available in a 1/8th pack, which includes seven .5 gram pre-rolls of Lowell Farms’ signature sun-grown California cannabis, custom blended with Orange Sherbet, Banjo, and Rattlesnake Sour Diesel.

“Lowell Herb Co. is committed to improving peoples’ lives and reversing the negative impact that cannabis prohibition has had on our society,” said Lowell Herb Co. CEO David Elias. “When Think BIG approached us about collaborating on a program that highlights the positive impact of cannabis on our culture, we were all in.”

A portion of proceeds from The Frank White Creative Blend will be donated to the Prison Arts Project. The Prison Arts Project began in 1977, and is dedicated to providing arts instruction to incarcerated individuals in the belief that participation in the artistic process significantly and positively affects their view of themselves and the world around them.

“We’ve been fans of Lowell for years. We love their top-shelf flower and their use of organic farmers for their products,” said CJ Wallace, founder of Think BIG. “Before my dad was killed, he was arrested for cannabis possession, and I see how the pointless war on drugs has affected our communities — this is why criminal justice reform is important to me. My mom and dad both used cannabis for their creativity, as I do.”

Think BIG’s new brand Frank White creates limited-edition cannabis products, apparel, and accessories designed to inspire creativity. The name is taken from the eponymous character in the 1990 film King of New York, one of the many aliases that Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace used to express himself. By supporting artistic creativity and criminal justice reform, Frank White’s mission is to show society that cannabis isn’t contraband; it’s a catalyst for creativity.

“We believe it’s time for the world to honor and embrace cannabis’ influence as the ultimate ghostwriter in music, literature, visual arts, science. From Louis Armstrong, Jack Kerouac, Carl SaganJohnny CashJohn LennonQuincy Jones, Rolling Stones, to Biggie…if you enjoy their work, then you must honor cannabis’ contribution as a creative tool. It’s time to come out of the cannabis closet and discuss how this plant has shaped our culture in positive ways,” says Willie Mack, co-founder and president of Think BIG.

The limited-edition Frank White Creative Blend pack is available today in Northern California at Urban Pharm and Southern California at Rose Collective and Sweet Leaf for $40.

TONIK Selects Finastra’s Core Banking Solution to Power Southeast Asia’s First Pure-play Licensed Digital Bank

Greg Krasnov, Founder & CEO at TONIK

 

Finastra announced today that TONIK, the first licensed digital-only bank in Southeast Asia, has selected Fusion Essence in the cloud to power its end-to-end core banking capabilities. The move will support TONIK as it launches its retail deposit and customer loans services in the Philippines, giving it agility and the ability to scale quickly.

Greg Krasnov, Founder & CEO at TONIK, said, “The banking sector in the Philippines is ripe for digital disruption. The country has high internet usage, the majority of Filipinos are unbanked and research shows half of the people who do have bank accounts would be interested in switching to a neobank.

“We want to create a hyper-compelling consumer proposition that will revolutionize the way money works in the region. Finastra’s Fusion Essence Cloud – powered by Microsoft Azure – will give us the agility to get these services to market quickly and efficiently. We are also impressed by the modern, open and scalable capabilities of the solution, particularly the in-built analytics, which will help us to better understand our customers’ smart digital banking needs.”

The key proposition for digital banks is providing a customer experience that traditional banks struggle to offer. This requires modern, cloud-native technology that facilitates innovation whilst future-proofing investment. For TONIK, Fusion Essence Cloud will be deployed out of the Microsoft Azure Southeast Asia Region (Singapore Data Center), which will allow for both low latency and data residency. TONIK will benefit from a low cost of entry into the market, ease and speed of deployment, and the ability to increase business volumes and diversify its product set cost-effectively. It will also benefit from ongoing software updates and, in time, access to further innovation via FusionFabric.cloud, Finastra’s platform for open innovation and the development of applications.

European neobanks, including revverbank and Gravity, are already being powered by Fusion Essence Cloud, and this deployment in Southeast Asia will help bring the benefits of innovative digital banking to the Philippines.

Anand Subbaraman, General Manager, Retail Banking at Finastra, said, “TONIK is well positioned to replicate the disruption that has taken place in Europe, where digital banks have quickly attracted millions of customers and billions of dollars in investor funding. Using digital technologies and a lower-cost operating model, TONIK will be able to offer customers the products and services they need, delivered in a convenient way, as well as increasing opportunities for financial inclusion in Asia. Fusion Essence Cloud is ideally suited to help TONIK achieve these goals, as well as see a fast return on its investment. We are extremely proud to be TONIK’s partner in bringing digital banking to the Philippines for the first time.”
