Recently-inducted MLB Hall of Famer David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz announced his own line of weed products Wednesday.

The long-time Boston Red Sox DH is calling the line ‘Papi Cannabis,’ which will offer pre-rolled blunts dubbed “Sweet Sluggers,” according to Fox News. Ortiz teamed up with RevBrands, a weed manufacturer and wholesaler based in Massachusetts. The company plans to roll out more products in the near future.

The debut pre-roll product features several different strains of marijuana such as “Black Mamba #7,” “Lava Cake #7,” “Motorbreath #15” and “Bootylicious #4,” according to (RELATED: Police Arrest Man For Carrying 70 Pounds Of Weed After Leaving Court House)

Ortiz and his daughter teamed up to create the artwork for the packaging of the blunt boxes, he noted in the statement. (RELATED: Louisiana Senate Candidate Gary Chambers Smokes Blunt In Campaign Video)
