“Hemp production in America was stifled for so long, but it could now make all the difference for small independent farmers.” Nelson continued, “Hemp isn’t just good for our farmers and our economy, it’s good for our soil, our environment – and our health.”
“Willie’s Reserve is an extension of [my] passion and appreciation for the many varieties and range of the plant’s qualities. Some of the best master growers in America will collaborate… to define quality standards so that fans can expect clean and consistent products.”
Willie Nelson‘s latest release will have you starting all your days on a high note. The country music Hall of Famer just launched his own hemp-infused coffee – making every morning a little easier.
The medium-dark blend has flavor notes of cherry and cocoa and is infused with organic, full-spectrum hemp oil that is grown in Colorado. The 8oz bag rings up at a steep price of $36, but Nelson and his wife are focusing on the health benefits that come along with cannabis.
Being that Nelson has been an advocate for the legalization of marijuana for decades, his new brew is fitting. Nelson’s wife, Annie, is overseeing Willie’s Remedy and plans to release other products within the upcoming year.
Back in 2015, Nelson announced the launch of his own cannabis company, Willie’s Reserve. Being known for his love for the greens, fans were finally able to try their own “Willie Weed.” Originally, the product was grown and sold by local businesses in Colorado and Washington but as more states began to regulate the plant, several stores have opened across the U.S.
Fast forward a few years later and Nelson’s newest product has your average pot-lover becoming a morning person. Willie’s Remedy is Nelson’s new line of health and wellness products – and he’s introducing it to the world with hemp-infused coffee. According to his website, the coffee is grown in Colombia’s Santuario region.
"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."
The coffee is set to launch in September in Colorado, one of the U.S. states where marijuana is now legal. Culture Map Austin reports that Willie's remedy will introduce more products later in the year.
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.
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.
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.
