Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt is venturing into the cannabis industry as an investor, adviser and brand ambassador for California cannabis farm Goldenseed.
Dirnt's involvement stems from his wife Brittney's battle with breast cancer a few years ago, during which the Dirnts learned of the plant’s effectiveness as a medicinal option for cancer patients.
Mike explained, “I asked my wife if she was OK with us investing. She was absolutely all for it because cannabis was a tremendous help during her chemotherapy treatments when she was battling breast cancer. To this day, it helps with her body aches and pains and the residual effects of a lot of drugs that went into her system.”
