Exclusive varieties acquired by South-African entrepreneur

A South African businessman, Matt Benas, outbid everyone in an NFT (non-fungible token) auction for two packs of seeds and their associated artworks from U.S. cannabis breeder Gage Green Group.

The breeders of GGG used an NFT auction to release their latest creations: ▲ R I S E and BURN, both accompanied by original works of art by Gage's founder, Jeff Selsor. 

This transaction marks several firsts. ▲ R I S E and BURN are the first cannabis strains of their kind memorialized forever on the blockchain. This is also the first time GGG released seeds for only one exclusive owner. "This is the future, and we are positioning ourselves to take full advantage of the unique value of the strain and the artwork," says GGG Partner, Michael Fong.

Matt Benas is a young businessman residing in South Africa., Matt has been creating businesses since childhood: web development, home renovation, and frozen food distribution. He is currently the CEO of smokemgarage.com which customizes high-performance vehicles.  

Clearly a modern-day Renaissance man, Matt has also excelled in cannabis as well. Says Benas, "We are immensely excited about the vast potential this partnership has to offer and are thrilled to work with such visionaries."

The creative forces behind GGG, Mike Fong and Jeff Selsor, have dedicated themselves to crafting flowers and seeds in a natural organic farming ecosystem known as the GGG Biodome.
