Willie Nelson‘s wife, Annie, is piggybacking on the singer’s marijuana advocacy with the announcement of her own business, Annie’s Edibles. As a branch of the singer’s cannabis company, Willie’s Reserve, Annie’s Edibles makes its debut with artisan chocolates the first product.
Currently available at select dispensaries in Washington state, the hand-crafted chocolates are made from natural techniques, with the chocolate itself made from “consciously sourced ingredients” and low-heat processes that sustain the product’s raw qualities, according to a press release. Whole-plant extraction maintains the richness of the cannabis plant, with the chocolates containing a dose of 5mg of THC.
“I make my infused chocolates for people who want to enjoy gourmet cannabis chocolate in a controllable way. It’s important that my chocolates are suitable for those with diet restrictions – whether someone is vegan, has Celiac Disease or gluten allergies, requires a low or balanced sweetener diet or if they have a low tolerance to cannabis they can still enjoy the benefits of my infused chocolates,” Annie says of her products. She also utilizes a “Zero Crap Policy” that allows the chocolates to be vegan, gluten-free, environmentally-conscious and 100 percent raw.
Willie’s Reserve was launched by the legendary country singer in 2016 that features a line of cannabis products garnered from responsible growers. The products are available in Colorado, Washington and Nevada. Nelson recently made a surprise appearance at the 2017 SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, after canceling several shows due to illness. He’s also set to take the stage at a Merle Haggard tribute concert in Nashville on April 6.
Annie’s Nelson’s Whole Flower Infused Chocolates is gluten free, dairy free and vegan. Ingredients are never heated above 120°.
Willie’s Reserve Annie’s Chocolates are sold at designated recreational marijuana dispensaries in states where the use, sale and possession of marijuana, for adults, is legal pursuant to state law.
Willie and family have so far committed $3,500 to build a solar barn.
Temperatures are already plummeting in North Dakota, and adequate housing is absolutely critical to shelter the Water Protectors through the winter.
Bold Alliance is taking action to support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and allies at the Oceti Sakowin camps that are holding the line to protect our land, water and climate from the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Bold is raising $35,000 to build 30 tiny solar-powered barns on the Standing Rock land set aside for winter camping. We’ve already raised over $20,000, more than halfway to our goal — Thank you!
The tiny barns will be mobile — so they may be utilized in the future by the Standing Rock tribe, and transported to support Pipeline Fighters on the frontlines in other states.
Bold Alliance continues to stand with Standing Rock and landowners in Iowa fighting Dakota Access.
Thanks to the Nelson family, and to all the Water Protectors standing with Standing Rock and Iowa landowners fighting Dakota Access.

Country music icon Willie Nelson has been married four times— Martha Matthews (1952-1962), Shirley Collie (1963-1971), Connie Koepke (1971-1988), and Annie D’Angelo (1991-present)— and has fathered a total of seven children. Though his first three marriages have ended in divorce, his fourth and current wife, Ann Marie D’Angelo aka Annie, has proven to be his rock through multiple drug arrests and health issues.
The couple met when Annie was working as a makeup artist on the set of his 1986 film Stagecoach. The pair got hitched on September 16, 1991, at St. Alouin Church in Nashville, Tennessee and have two sons together, Lukas Autry and Jacob Micah.
Like most couples, Willie and Annie enjoy spending time together and especially love exploring the great outdoors surrounding their Maui, Hawaii home, which is nestled in largely self-sustaining community that is also home to Kris Kristofferson. They also frequent their ranch near Austin, Texas.
As he has gotten older, Nelson has admitted that his abilities as a husband have gotten stronger over the years, “You get older, you get wiser.” The country legend also claims that the biggest lessons he’s learned about a lasting relationship have actually spawned from his string of divorces.
We wish Willie and Annie many more years of wedded bliss!
