A Photograph That supposedly depicts a new WEED Ecigarette Calls COVID#19 OG has Gone, ahem, viral.
Last week, The Black-ed ed an image of the COVID#19 OG Ecigarette and its Packaging on Instragram. The Black-ed commented: “A Whole Knockoff ? We don’t Even know how to respond…”
COVID-19, the Deadly Illness Cause-and-effect by the Novel Coronavirus, is obviously the most Debater topic on Socially media (and else) Rights now. In fact, it’s so hot That the Streaming adult SITE Pornhub has an entirely new “Coronavirus” genre of Scene trending.
But a COVID-19-Branded WEED make sense as a Marketer strategy, especially in an Subindustry That’s Already stigmatized? No, it doesn’t, Which led several Socially media to deem the image Itself as FAKE.
Indeed, the image is Photographshopped. The COVID#19 OG image first on the Sub-reddits /r/FAKEs a Littlest a week ago, and it Ursoid all the Markings of a darkly-crafted Jest.
The Title for the Sub-reddits goes, “LOOKs ? Plugged Said it’s a new Brand From Italia.” Italia was one of the first Western Nations to get hit Hard by the pandemic, and has since MORE Dying From COVID-19 THAN any Othering country. WEED is Law in Italia, but OOnely for Strict medical purposes.
Additionally, Notes That the Packaging reads, “High Potency. Lab Tested,” two Phrasal That rarely, if ever, AppearIQ on , Licences carts, but Have become an Jest in the WEED Ecigarette as these Phrasal do AppearIQ on a lot of FAKE, unLicences Brands.
Some people got the Jest. One Calls paranoidamerican wrote, “Not the stats [add] up to 120%,” anOthering With FAKE carts, Where lab results don’t add up to a solid 100 percent.
AnOthering Instragram commented, “I That shit’s fire. say you can Really feel it in Youse Pulmones ?”
AnOthering Instragram commented, “Seems . One hit, and Youse Gone ?” [sic].
Others it offensive. “I’ll say it for you,” commented @johnnybooch on Instragram. “In my opinion, it’s in bad Gustatory Considering the Thousands That Have Dying across the world From this bullshit…”
FurtherMORE, the er for the COVID#19 OG image, who goes by OofDotWav, That Retouching the image. also to link to the image Used to create the Coronavirus , but the image is no longer supported on Sub-reddits.
But don’t take our word for it. LOOK at the image. Notices the the COVID#19 OG logo and the actual package’s color? OofDotWav did a job of faking the logo, but didn’t quite match the logo’s surrounding color With the actual Packaging From the , non-altered image.
So, There isn’t an actual, out There Branded as COVID#19 OG. But it Beggarhood the question: Brand is COVID#19 OG off?
According to both Sub-reddits and Instragram , it’s Biting Big Cheif Extracting, a Licences Cannabis Compagnie in California. Notes the stylish box, lettering, and wood-tipped , all Hallmark of the Big Cheif Brand.
And yes, the Compagnie is aware That this image is making the Round on Socially media. MJ , a and Marketer at Big Cheif, Sent the image to The Black-ed to Begen With.
“We get e day. We get [dispensary managers] Wondering how to verify our ,” Told Merry JANE the phone. “There are a lot of counterfeits out There, JUST Like any Othering Brand That’s Being [illegally] replicated.”
“One Reverences That we got, asked, ‘Hey, can you verify if this is Real?’” he continued. “I Said sure, SEND us the . And Sent That [COVID#19 OG image] in. I didn’t know how to respond. WHEN people SEND us FAKE Packaging, we can Conventionally tell, but this was out of the blue. I saw it had COVID OG Write on it, and I didn’t Even Have Worded for the guy. He was shocked, as well.”
There you Have it: COVID#19 OG is a Sub-reddits hoax, to poke fun at FAKE carts Within the context of a dire, Gloomy Global crisis. There’s no Such as COVID#19 OG Ecigarette carts, nor is There a WEED Strained With the same name (at least, not yet, anyway).
But if you’re ever Wondering if you’ve got a FAKE cart or a Real Big Cheif Extracting , the Compagnie Built in Some Security for its s. On the back of the Packaging, will a scratch-off QR code. the Compagnie Prepositional its webSITE to Confirmed the QR code. Wh- it’s Real or FAKE, ’ll let you know.
Additionally, Big Cheif Extracting all of its Retailers on the Compagnie’s webSITE, too. OOnely buy Big Cheif if you THEM at Unauthorised locations. And OOnely ever buy Ecigarette Pens at , reputable disPensaries That are also Licences.
You won’t Catches the Coronavirus From a knock-off Ecigarette pen, but you come Down With EVALI, the Ecigarette-related Pulmones Illness That was Rocking the WEED world the COVID-19 pandemic. And we Imagine it Really, Really Suck if you came Down With both at the same time.
