Ed Sheeran smokes up with Snoop and Russell Crowe

During the October 2nd episode of Conan O'Brien's podcast, "Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend," on SiriusXM Garage, 32-year-old Ed Sheeran laughed while engaging in various discussions. One of the highlights was his humorous recounting of an unforgettable experience: getting incredibly high during a smoke session with 51-year-old Snoop Dogg backstage after a concert in Australia last March.


Despite the presence of Sheeran's mother-in-law and wife nearby, the temptation to check off a bucket list item—smoking weed with Snoop Dogg—proved too strong for him to resist. Fortunately for fans, most of this memorable encounter has been widely shared on Instagram.


On March 4th, a memorable backstage moment unfolded during Snoop Dogg's Melbourne, Australia, stop on his "I Wanna Thank Me Tour" at Melbourne Park. Snoop Dogg graciously presented Ed Sheeran and actor Russell Crowe with golden Death Row Records chains in a dressing room. This gesture was a nod to Snoop's famous declaration, "I wanna thank me," which he made during his speech after receiving his Hollywood Walk of Fame star in 2019.


In a video shared on Snoop's Instagram Reel capturing the interaction, both Sheeran and Crowe can appreciate their new chains. The dressing room scene is enveloped in a cloud of smoke, suggesting a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Notably, this Reel garnered over 50,000 likes, and Crowe bobbed his head to the music in the video as he eagerly opened the box containing his chain.


At that moment, Sheeran appeared perfectly composed and shared his Instagram post featuring a picture of himself with Snoop, sporting a broad smile. In his post, he wrote, "I had a great time." On the other hand, Snoop posted a picture on Instagram from the encounter, donning Sheeran's chain, and captioned it with, "Amazing. Mr. Ed."


In the dressing room, Sheeran and Snoop indulged in a smoke session until Sheeran playfully admitted he couldn't see straight anymore. Interestingly, Sheeran's wife, Cherry Seaborn, and mother-in-law were also present, as they were friends with Russell Crowe.

"I've developed a close friendship with Russell Crowe over the years, and he happens to be tight with Snoop Dogg," Sheeran confided in Conan. "I found myself in the dressing room, and they passed blunts around like a ritual.


At some point during the night, I must partake to say I smoked with Snoop Dogg." When asked about sharing a smoke with a secret celebrity, Snoop had previously revealed to ET that he and Crowe had also indulged at some point.


Anyone who understands anything about marijuana knows you'll get torn if you haven't smoked in a few months or more. But Sheeran was the first to say he isn't a regular smoker.

"He was like, 'Do you want some?' and I was like, now's the time," she added. "We were having a pleasant conversation." So I had a bit and thought, "I don't feel too bad. This is good." Then I have a little bit more, and then I have a little bit more, and then I have a little bit more."


Sheeran humorously added, "I vividly recall looking at him and realizing, 'I can't see properly right now,'" which prompted laughter from Conan O'Brien and the studio audience. Reflecting on another incident in 2013, Sheeran recalled how he took just one hit of The Game's potent marijuana and was significantly affected while the rapper remained unfazed in the studio.

Snoop Dogg is Famous for Smoking

During a tour leg, Snoop Dogg also shared fan letters from Australian fans in a video the following day. While Ed Sheeran was notably intoxicated, it seemed like another day for Snoop. In 2013, Snoop revealed on Twitter that he estimated he smokes 81 blunts per day, and in a 2022 Australian podcast, he mentioned smoking between 75 to 150 blunts daily. This vast consumption explains why he requires a dedicated blunt roller.


On December 29, 2022, Snoop Dogg announced that Death Row Records would be venturing into the cannabis industry with Death Row Cannabis. Despite being a celebrity-endorsed brand, it garnered popularity among High Times readers for several reasons. The curator of Death Row Cannabis is the renowned AK, personally selected by Snoop.


AK is best known for his collaboration with former partner Wizard Trees, focusing on cultivating and selecting strains like RS11 (also known as Rainbow Sherbert #11), Studio 54, and Shirazi from the breeder DEO Farms.


In April of last year, High Times interviewed Tiffany Chin, the CEO of Death Row Cannabis. Then, in May, Death Row Cannabis introduced three new strains – Strawberry Gelato, LA Runtz, and SFV OG – at select locations throughout California.


Conan O'Brien frequently engages in interviews with Snoop Dogg as well. O'Brien decided to launch a podcast for various reasons: to escape the confines of FCC regulations. He explained, "After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him.


Over the years, and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never formed a genuine and enduring friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he launched a podcast with the aim of changing that."

Given their interactions, the meeting between Snoop and Sheeran comes as no surprise.


 The entertaining and memorable encounter between Ed Sheeran and Snoop Dogg, as shared by Sheeran on Conan O'Brien's podcast, offers a lighthearted glimpse into the world of cannabis culture. The relaxed and humorous atmosphere of their backstage smoke session, with Snoop's well-known affinity for cannabis, underscores the camaraderie that often accompanies the shared enjoyment of this plant.

It's a testament to how cannabis can bridge gaps and foster unexpected connections, even among celebrities, leading to unforgettable moments and stories to share within the wider cannabis community.
