After teasing a mysterious new venture earlier in the week, Drake has officially announced his More Life Growth Company.

The idea of being able to build something special in an industry that is ever growing has been inspiring. More Life and More Blessing.”
According to a press release, More Life is “centered around wellness, discovery, and overall personal growth with the hope of facilitating connections and shared experiences across the globe.” Drake holds 60% ownership in More Life, while Canopy Growth retains a 40% stake.
Earlier in the week, Drake teased the announcement by delivering flowers across Toronto. “Breakfast Television” host Dina Pugliese was among those who received the bouquet during a live TV broadcast.
A trademark was filed in Canada for More Life Growth Company, which lists cannabis-related products including herb teas, hookahs, vaporizers, and rolling papers. The trademark was filed on Oct. 21 and the applicant is listed as Dream Crew IP in West Hollywood, Calif.
More Life is the latest addition to Drake’s growing business empire. The 6 God, whose estimated net worth is $150 million, also has investments in Virginia Black whiskey and e-sports organization 100 Thieves.
