Southern Sky Brands and Belushi’s Farm are committed to providing patients with safe and effective medical cannabis products. Both companies are proud to be leading the way in this rapidly growing industry. Belushi’s Farm is dedicated to the compassion and empathy for those struggling with opiate addiction, veterans with PTSD, cancer, anxiety, pain, and seizures. Steve Merritt, Chief Operating Officer of Southern Sky Brands, believes Mississippi patients will value the partnership with Belushi’s Farm. “The Team at Southern Sky Brands is beyond excited to welcome Belushi’s Farm and Blues Brothers cannabis to Mississippi. Jim Belushi has been an advocate for the medicine for years, entering the market with 48 plants in 2015 and hasn’t looked back. Belushi’s Farm and Blues Brothers are a brand we are excited to partner with as they share our belief that cannabis medicine should be done with the safety and wellbeing of the patient in mind.”

Merritt continues, “Southern Sky Brands is proud to produce the highest quality, safest cannabis, and in the coming months will have innovative products to meet the medical needs of patients. The founders of Southern Sky Brands are from Mississippi, and are committed to this state and to the betterment of the needs for those that call Mississippi home. Bringing a national brand like Blues Brothers and Belushi’s Farm has been our goal from day one and we are honored to announce the partnership and excited to bring the much needed, highest quality medical cannabis to people who are suffering.”

“Southern Sky Brands is a golden ray of hope. Their facility, cultivation, depth of research into the science, and passion for the healing plant aligns with the passion of Belushi’s Farm,” said Jim Belushi. “We want to provide every patient in Mississippi with a pathway to healing. We’ve searched from Amsterdam to Afghanistan to Columbia to Big Sur for our genetics — original landrace strains, the original medicine. We have passed on our tissue culture and seeds to Southern Sky so that they can help the medical patients in Mississippi. That is our Mission from God (Blues Brothers 1980). I’m looking forward to meeting the Mississippi patients on April 29th.”
