Snoop Dogg has partnered up with an Israel-based marijuana business called Seedo.

The company promotes home-grown marijuana and enlisted the American musician as their new brand ambassador earlier this week, according to the Canadian Press.

Snoop Dogg, 48, is an avid marijuana advocate and extremely outspoken regarding his use of the subtance. The Who Am I? rapper is set to promote Seedo’s newest product, the “Seedo Homelab.”

Seedo’s Homelab is a small, refrigerator-like machine that helps grow marijuana plants with assistance from AI (artificial intelligence) technology.

Though the Seedo Homelab is marketed towards cannabis users, it is also able to grow a variety of different pesticide-free herbs, vegetables and other plants, according to the product listing.

On supporting and advertising a product that helps individuals grow their own plants in the comfort of their home and out of the public, Snoop Dogg said: “[It’s] something that I’m all the way down with.”

In 2015, Snoop Dogg launched his very own line of marijuana products. He called the business Leafs by Snoop.
