Dennis Hopper’s Dying Wish: His Own Cannabis Strain

Even as celebrity brands are starting to flood the emerging Cannabis market, Hopper Reserve stands out. The brand was launched by Marin Hopper, Dennis Hopper’s daughter from his marriage to Brooke Hayward.

Hopper Reserve is a gram of California indoor-grown flower, two packs of rolling papers, a pair of matches and a trading card either featuring Hopper and Andy Warhol or one of him in his trademarked Stetson and bolo tie. The package in an unassuming tin foil pouch with the slogan: “Here’s to the rebel in all of us.”

The brand’s website touts Hopper as “a contradictory mix of Pabst Blue Ribbon and pop art, of rustic Americana and a new generation of restless revolutionaries, of madman machismo and the unmatched allure of a true auteur,” while Marin says of cannabis, “It was something he could unwind with and enjoy in a very peaceful, fun-loving way. It was very complementary to his life.”

It was fairly well-known in the cannabis community that Hopper turned to the medicinal aspects of marijuana in the last stages of the cancer that took his life at the age of 74 in 2010.

Kenny Morrison, who runs his own edible Venice Cookie Co., remembers Hopper’s nurse coming to the dispensary where he used to work requesting cannabis tea.
