He recently teamed up with Doghouse to create his own strain CRUD.
“I’ve been smoking since [I was] a teenager,” he tells Metro Times over the phone. “When I grew up, that’s what we used to call weed in my hood, ‘crud.’”
“I had been trying to get into the weed industry for the past two years and when I seen the weed market was really becoming a multi-billion dollar industry in Michigan, I knew I had to get my hand in it,” he said. “DogHouse is pretty cool too ’cause their grow is on the Eastside which is where I’m from, but they hail from the West Coast and they have award-winning genetics. I don’t know shit about growing weed, but they got that in the bag. I’m just coming in with the creative end."
CRUD is the name of a lifestyle brand McFly is building with DogHouse and also the name of the first strain he’s releasing with more to come. It’ll be sold in eighths to start and McFly says he designed the packaging to look like a box of cereal.
“I’m a cartoon guy, like ’90s nostalgia, that’s really my shit,” he says. “So I created the CRUD box to look like a cereal box with the eighth inside and you also get a sticker as well. There’ll be four free collectible stickers that come with it. That’s what I want to focus on, like every different package is an art experience. On the back of the box, there’s a maze or connect the dots, you know, stuff like you used to find on the back of a cereal box.”
CRUD is an Indica-dominant hybrid which McFly says has a “distinct taste that’s not too earthy.”
“I was trying to search for something like my first time smoking Runts,” he says, adding that he spent weeks smoking different DogHouse phenotypes to find one he liked. “I feel like CRUD is a little bit heavier than Runts and it looks pretty too. It doesn’t get you stupid high, you can still function, and you get a great taste.” - Detroit Metro Times
