What is Mighty Croz?

Mighty Croz is a craft cannabis brand founded by Crosby and his longtime friend and entrepreneur Steven Sponder. The two decided to collaborate to get Crosby’s name in the cannabis space in a quality way because people have been asking “Croz” (as his friends call him) to do this for more than five decades.

“I’m launching a weed brand for a few reasons. First, because people all aroud the world have been asking me to do this – forever. Other than music, it’s what I’m known for. After all, my friends including The Beatles and even Willie would say I always had the best weed. I’ve been enjoying cannabis for over sixty years – so I have a lot of experience. Also, I’m doing this because it’s fun. Weed is fun, people who like weed are fun – and I like to have fun in my life. I have a PHD in fun,” Crosby said when asked why is he launching Might Croz, according to the company website.
