The CEOs of Gumbo Brands (@flytrap_official) announce partnership with New York’s #1 radio station – Hot97.
GUMBO Brands has launched a revolutionary new cannabis company, founded by the entrepreneurial geniuses behind iconic lifestyle and fashion brand Gumbo. Karim Butler and Alexis Major-Allison founded the Black-owned cannabis brand to harness the power of culture and creativity in order to create community-based wealth. Top musicians such as Moneybagg Yo, Kodak Black, Meek Mill, Migos, Dave East, Fabolous, and others have publicly endorsed the cannabis strain.
Butler, the founder and CEO of GUMBO Brands, collaborated on the bespoke cannabis strain with his fiance Major. The Bronx native, owes his entrepreneurial spirit to his grandparents, who founded the Harlem Vendors Association. His main motivation for launching the brand stemmed from his desire to make other people’s life easier and less painful.
“GUMBO is a lifestyle for us, so everyday we’re coming up with new things to do because we live this. It’s not a 9-5. It’s our daily life,” said Alexis on a recent interview on BagFuel. “And it’s something we enjoy and we love. It’s our baby, our child. So, we put everything that we have into it.”
Major is the CFO of GUMBO Brands and a seasoned serial entrepreneur. Prior to founding Gumbo Brands, Major worked as a manager to NFL players. She was determined to develop an option that would relieve pain and inflammation without the risk of addiction after witnessing the ill effects of opiate-based pain management on the professional athletes she managed. In 2022 they launched their major partnership with Cookies and have joined major events and upcoming festivals like Rolling Loud.
