Vacationer Announce Signature "Mindset" Cannabis Strain with Cherry Kola Farms

Vacationer Announce Signature "Mindset" Cannabis Strain with Cherry Kola Farms


Philadelphia-based band Vacationer is teaming up with Cherry Kola Farms to release their signature "Mindset" strain of Cannabis. The cannabis strain will be released this fall and is the first of many artist licensing deals for Cherry Kola Farms, under the supervision of Zach Falkow, Director of Artist Relations. "We could not be more excited to have Vacationer as our premiere artist," Falkow says. "Kenny's creativity, enthusiasm for cannabis and his approach to the product is a perfect match for Cherry Kola Farms. We're all big fans of the music, and we have no doubt that the "Mindset" strain will be a perfect compliment to its namesake album."

Cherry Kola Farms was founded in 2010 in Sonoma County, CA by brothers Asa and Sean Schaeffer. Known for cultivating small batch craft cannabis, Cherry Kola has established itself as an authority in the cannabis industry. Their namesake strain has won countless awards including the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup, The Breeders Cup, and the LA Cannabis Cup. In partnership with Xtractology, Cherry Kola offers a wide variety of different products from flower to waxes and distillate, each in a myriad of different flavors and strains. Beyond their strains, the Cherry Kola empire includes multiple production facilities, a flagship dispensary in West Hollywood and a newly formed artist partnership department. Cherry Kola Farms' extensive experience and knack for innovation has positioned the brand to lead the cannabis industry and lifestyle into the mainstream.

The release of the “Mindset” strain is a pivotal moment for frontman Ken Vasoli. “My collaboration with Cherry Kola Farms is a complete dream turned reality." He adds, "I've been a cannabis advocate for all of my adult life. Now I've been given this chance to tailor a strain of marijuana with experts of the craft. The combination of strains that we landed on (Headband x Pineapple OG x Banana Kush) were selected specifically for the benefits it would have on Mindset.Those strains are all carry euphoric, happy and creative effects. Those are the positive aspects of marijuana that I want to emphasize. I want the people who try this strain to have a positive mental experience and to feel comfortable in the creative side of their brain.” 

Vacationer will kick off their North American tour in support of their third full-length Mindset this Friday at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. Mindset is built on delicate melodies and crystalline rhythms that seem to alter the very texture of the world around you. Ornately composed but breezy in energy, Vacationer’s warm-hearted dream-pop perfectly mirrors Vasoli’s intentions in making the album. “The objective was to write songs that remind me how my brain needs to operate for my own wellbeing and happiness,” Vasoli says. “That’s where the title comes from—the record’s filled with all these reminders that put me in a good mindset for the day.”
