Country Artists Who Have Smoked Pot and Told Us About It:
The country legend is a longtime advocate for the beneficial effects of cannabis, and his new line of products are infused with CBD oil, beginning with a whole bean, CBD-infused coffee. Each small-batch roast is infused with CBD oil that was derived naturally from organic, American-grown hemp. According to a press release, an 8-ounce cup of Willie's Remedy contains about 5 milligrams of CBD oil.
"It's two of my favorites, together in the perfect combination," Nelson says. "Like coffee, cannabis is a plant that works for me."
Willie Nelson is expanding his Willie's Reserve line of cannabis products with a new range of THC-free products called Willie's Remedy.
The icon is also a tireless advocate for America's farmers, and he hopes changing laws around hemp production will be beneficial to them financially.
"Hemp production was suppressed in America because hemp was competitive to too many industries. The country probably missed some opportunity during hemp prohibition," Nelson states. "But another way to look at it is that hemp is the answer to [a] huge range of challenges we're facing right now. Allowing commercial hemp farming will create jobs for the farmers."
Nelson has been very open about his fondness for cannabis over the years, and he personally tests all of his products, which he insists must be cultivated on independent farms in small batches and use only organic inputs. CBD oil is a derivative of the cannabis plant, and advocates say it has many of the same health benefits of marijuana; however, its lack of THC means users do not experience the euphoric or psychoactive effects of marijuana.
Nelson also hopes to use his CBD line to educate consumers on the benefits of THC-free products. Though it is a derivative of the cannabis plant, CBD carries many of the same benefits as marijuana, but without THC, users don’t have the psychoactive or “high” effects.
According to a release, Willie’s Remedy, the CBD line of Nelson’s Willie’s Reserve, will first debut a whole bean, CBD-infused coffee to help perk up your morning. The small batch roast will be infused with oil naturally derived from American-grown, organic hemp. When brewed, an 8-ounce cup of Willie’s Remedy carries about 5 milligrams of CBD oil.
Whether it’s a song about heartbreak or an eighth of his own brand of marijuana, Austin’s own Willie Nelson always has the cure for what ails you. Beginning in September, Nelson is expanding his cannabis line to include one of the buzziest products in recent memory: CBD oil.
“It’s two of my favorites, together in the perfect combination,” says Nelson in a release. “Like coffee, cannabis is a plant that works for me.” The coffee is set to launch in September in Colorado. According to a representative, the brand plans to roll out additional CBD products sometime this year.
“Hemp production was suppressed in America because hemp was competitive to too many industries. The country probably missed some opportunity during hemp prohibition,” says Nelson. “But another way to look at it is that hemp is the answer to [a] huge range of challenges we’re facing right now. Allowing commercial hemp farming will create jobs for the farmers.”
In addition to music, education about the cannabis plant has been a large part of Nelson’s lengthy career. With Willie’s Reserve, which sells marijuana, accessories, and edibles in states where pot is legal, Nelson is monetizing the regulatory and social shifts happening in places like Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and California. Now, says the singer, it’s time to focus on hemp.
The launch of Willie’s Remedy comes just months after Willie’s Reserve made its debut in April. That line includes Willie’s Reserve Legendary Stash of packaged flowers and pre-rolled joints. In true Nelson fashion, the Red Headed Stranger tests all of his products, which are cultivated on independent farms in small batches, using only organic inputs.
As far as consumption, you can consume the picture directly or add it to food or drink.
An 8oz bag of Willie’s Remedy Whole Bean coffee with 113mg of CBD is currently priced at $28.80.
Willie’s Remedy Tincture
Willie’s Remedy is a hemp-based CBD line created by Willie Nelson and his wife Annie Nelson. The company plans to also launch confections, vaporizable hemp oils and tropicals.
“The Willie’s Remedy line is a purposeful departure from Willie’s Reserve,” Nelson’s wife Annie, who is curating the line, said in a statement, “It’s not about getting high, but it’s still all about Willie and the benefits we believe cannabis has to offer. Willie and I are proud to offer quality, American-sourced hemp wellness options for people of his generation, our kids’ generation, and everyone in between.”
