Actor-cannabis farmer Jim Belushi partners with Tulsa company on chocolate edibles

A Tulsa company is partnering with a cannabis farm owned by television and movie actor Jim Belushi.

Glazed Edibles and Glacier Chocolate will work with Oregon-based Belushi’s Farm to create a new line of full-spectrum, strain-specific, chocolate edibles that will be placed under Belushi’s premium brand Chasing Magic (Jim’s Secret Stash).

The new line of Glazed Edibles, exclusively sold in licensed cannabis dispensaries throughout Oklahoma, is formulated with the same artisanal chocolate used at its sister company, Glacier Chocolate.

“We are ready to chase magic with Jim and get the new line to market,” Glacier co-CEO Katie Mabrey said in a statement. “This partnership will help facilitate bringing high-end quality medicinal products to people that need them.”

Brother of the late actor-comedian John Belushi, Jim Belushi is best known as patriarch of the ABC sitcom “According to Jim,” which ran for eight seasons. He also has starred in movies such as “About Last Night” and was a cast member and Saturday Night Live for 33 episodes between 1983 and 1985.

Belushi’s farm began with 48 plants during Oregon’s medical marijuana program in 2015.

He produces cannabis crops and products, creating signature brands that include The Blues Brothers, Captain Jack’s (the smell of SNL), Good Ugly Weed (Chris’s Stash) and Chasing Magic (Jim’s Secret Stash).

Chasing Magic will be available in Oklahoma on October 18.

“This whole experience is completely magical; it’s exciting for our business and for Oklahoma,” Glacier co-CEO Katie Hutto said in a statement. “Jim’s mission in cannabis completely aligns with ours and I could not have imagined a better partner to help grow our business.”

Belushi met “The Katies,” as they are commonly referred to, earlier this year when he visited their Emerald Gallery Dispensary. After seeing and sampling their artisanal chocolates, Belushi reached out about a possible partnership.

“I’m chasing magic and I found it in Tulsa, Oklahoma,” Belushi said in a statement. “The magicians are `The Katies.’ When I look into their eyes, my spirit goes into a full smile. The love and joy in their eyes is infectious and I taste it in their chocolate truffles.

“Creative and unique truffles — what a feeling! What an edible! It’s premium chocolate with premium cannabis …”

Framed by State Question 788, passed overwhelmingly by state voters three years ago, Oklahoma’s medical marijuana laws tried to favor small, local operators by limiting out-of-state ownership stakes, setting license fees low and putting no cap on the number of business licenses that could be issued.
