Willie Nelson Introducing Non-THC Willie’s Remedy Cannabis Line
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 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."
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.
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.
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."
