Boulder-based fine cannabis extract producer Green Dot Labs announced today the release of its first live resin pen, a collaboration with legendary electronic music collective STS9. The Gobnugget Pen Limited Release and Golden Ticket Giveaway drops at select adult-use dispensaries across Colorado on January 25 to coincide with the band’s intimate Winter Tour concert series in Telluride (Jan. 31) and Aspen (Feb. 1-3). The limited release offers an exclusive first look at Green Dot Lab’s long-awaited Black Label live resin pen line in advance of an official March 2018 launch.
Green Dot Labs founder Dave Malone said, "STS9 is one of our favorite bands. We're constantly inspired by their creative exploration, so for our second collab we decided to push the boundaries and do something totally new—our first ever pen." STS9 percussionist Jeffree Lerner said, "We are so excited about our latest collaboration with Green Dot Labs who have designed a strain called "Gobnugget" for us...this one is gonna be special. It's a live resin pen and you will be able to find it in Denver, Boulder, Aspen, and Durango for our Winter Tour dates in Colorado. Look forward to seeing you at all the shows..."
Channeling the expansive vibe of STS9’s classic bass-heavy live jam "Gobnugget,” the 500mg cartridge pen combines two intense, terpene-rich Black Label varietals: Citradelic Sunset (Ghost Train Haze x Mandarin Sunset) and Bottlewash (Wookie x OZ Kush). Together they create a psychedelic flavor profile with vivid, unexpected notes of lavender, lime, and grape soda. The creative collaboration continues with a special edition, black-and-gold box that echoes band’s extraterrestrial aesthetic and was designed with their guidance.
A limited run of 1,000 cartridge and battery sets will be sold through select retail partners: A Cut Above (Denver, Colo.), The Honey Cellar (Boulder, Colo.), Kind Love (Glendale, Colo.), Silverpeak Apothecary (Aspen, Colo.), and Rocky Mountain High (Durango, Colo.). The Gobnugget Pen is an exclusive early release from the forthcoming line of Black Label live resin pens, which will offer vividly flavorful fine cannabis extracts in a discreet, convenient pen format. Like the company’s coveted Black Label Nectar line, the distillate- and additive-free pens highlight exclusive and proprietary varietals grown and extracted by Green Dot Labs. Reflecting a relentless commitment to quality and purity, the single-source, whole plant-derived live resin pens feature native terpene and cannabinoid profiles and full-spectrum ratios.
As with STS9's and Green Dot Labs' first collaboration, the Artifact Edition Limited Release, the Gobnugget Pen partnership will include a special Golden Ticket Giveaway. In Aspen and Durango, one box will hold a Golden Ticket for two tickets to STS9’s local Winter Tour shows at Club Red in Telluride on Jan. 31 or Belly Up in Aspen on Feb. 1. In both Denver and Boulder, a Golden Ticket winner will receive the Mission Control Pack, a special collection of limited-edition STS9 gear including a Sound Device synth and a Golden Record medallion. Everyone who purchases a pen will get access to a free download from the band's "Real or Imagined New Year" Winter Tour run. In addition, a generous donation drawn from a portion of the proceeds from the collaboration with benefit Conscious Alliance, a Boulder-based nonprofit that feeds the hungry through organized food drives at music and sporting events.
Green Dot Labs and STS9’s first collaboration, the Artifact Edition Limited Release honored the band’s “Celebration of the First 20 Years” at Red Rocks Amphitheater in September 2017. For tickets to STS9’s Winter Tour dates, visit https://sts9.com/pages/tour-dates.
