Woody picks up the Willie’s Reserve cartridge, asks if I smoke. I confess that I do not, and then add that I thought he didn’t either anymore. He takes a thoughtful pull on the cartridge. “Yep, I did quit,” he says on the exhale. “For almost two years. No smoking, no vaping. And then I ran into this guy”—he leans over and gives Rolling Stone Willie Nelson an affectionate chuck under the chin—“and that was that.”

“See, everybody thinks of Willie as a model of progressive thinking and virtue, and he is, but he’s also got an evil side. Eee-vil. Now, Willie never felt too good about me quitting. And he kept trying to get me to not quit. We’d be playing poker and he’d pass me a vape pen, and I’d say, ‘Willie, man, I don’t do that anymore.’ And he’d act surprised, like it was news to him—every time, just as surprised as he could be.

Then we were in Maui, and you know the whole reason I’m in Maui in the first place is Willie. Yeah, I went and saw one of his shows a number of years ago. I wanted to meet him. So afterward, I went to his bus and knocked on the door, and the door opened, and smoke was billowing out, and I look through the haze and I see this fellow with long hair holding a big old fatty, and he says, ‘Let’s burn one.’

And I know right away that he’s going to be a friend for life. He told me he had a place in Maui and to come on out, and that’s how I just sort of ended up there. Anyway, Willie passed me the pen after I’d won this huge pot. I was in a celebrating mood, so I snatched the pen from him and took a from him and took a long draw. And Willie smiled at me and said, ‘Welcome home, son.’ ”

Willie’s Nelson’s CBD Brand Expands with CBD infused Tinctures for Pain Relief

Earlier this year, singer Willie Nelson launched his first CBD brand, Willie’s Remedy and its first product, Willie’s Remedy Whole Bean Coffee. With increasing popularity and curiosity in the consumers about CBD, Willie is now expanding its hemp-based CBD brand and launching its own hemp-based pictures as well.

Annie Nelson said that the brand has seen a massive success since its debut in February, therefore, they are opening up distribution to meet the demands of consumers. The brand will be rolling out new products soon and intends to add more ways to help people in their day-to-day life with potential health benefits of CBD.

The hemp-based oil tincture is made with Colorado grown hemp flower which is then processed into a full spectrum of extract and then infused into organic fractioned coconut oil for the finishing touch. The consumers can use the tincture directly or even add it to their drink or food. It is made with utmost precision and care with regulated concentration of chemicals which are safe for consumers.

Nelson said that they have invented a dropper of tincture for the start of the day. Their CBD oil is also great to make smoothies or can be used as a dressing with a little apple cider vinegar. The CBD oil is fat soluble, so it blends effortlessly with other oils. The new tincture will come in both 10mg CBD and 25mg CBD per serving sizes which is quite sufficient and safe to digest.

Annie Nelson, wife of Willie Nelson also said that they plan to launch confections, vaporizable hemp oils and tropical products soon.She said that hemp cultivation in America has stifled for so long, but it could definitely make an impact on small independent farmers after the new bill.

Nelson added that hemp is not just good for the economy of the country or for farmers, but is an immensely great product for the soil, environment and the health of the people. Apart from Willie’s Remedy, Annie is also the founder of Willie’s Reserve, a separate brand which gives licensed THC products.

Willie’s Reserve is not in any manner a way to create products that can get people high, but it is solely about the benefits that cannabis can offer. Annie and Willie plan to bridge the gap between all generations – the old and the young – with their CBD products that can help people with a variety of ailments efficiently.

“The willie’s remedy line is a purposeful departure from the Willie’s Reserve” said Annie.

The new tincture is now available on the Willie’s Remedy website which can be accessed by users easily. A single ounce of the product contains 300mg of CBD (10 mg per serving), and is priced at $38.50 a bottle. Another bottle of 2ox containing 3000mg of CBD (50 mg per serving) will cost about $240, along with several rising and sizing variations between the two options available.

An 8oz bag of Willie’s Remedy Whole Bean Coffee with 113mg of CBD is priced at $28.80 at the moment.

Many celebs like Nelson have been enjoying the newly passed Farm bill of the United States which legalized hemp derived CBD. Martha Stewart also announced her plans to launch her own hemp-based CBD line with products curated for both, animals and humans. Actor Seth Rogan has also announced his plans to launch a marijuana line in partnership with the cannabis giant Canopy Growth.

The recent popularization of the hemp based cannabinoid has taken the market sharply. It has also facilitated the launch of a gamut of CBD kiosks in malls and other CBD infused products.

Willie Nelson’s CBD Coffee Not Available in every state – yet

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

www.austin360.com
By  Jake Harris

Willie’s Reserve, a strain of marijuana launched by Texas legend and famed marijuana acolyte Willie Nelson, isn’t available legally in Texas. And fans of cannabidiol (CBD), which recently became legalized in Texas in very specific cases dealing with epilepsy, might have to wait a while to eventually get their hands on Nelson’s new Willie’s Remedy line of coffee.

According to a Monday news release cited in the Dallas Morning News’ Guide Live, Willie’s Remedy coffee will debut in Colorado in September. The CBD-infused whole bean coffee includes CBD sourced from “organically grown, American hemp.” There will be 5 milligrams of CBD per every 8 ounces of coffee.

Willie’s Remedy will also include other CBD products. CBD does not produce a high and has been praised for its health effects, but, like the psychoactive ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana, it remains illegal under federal law. According to an American-Statesman report earlier this year, “Some CBD sales are allowed in Texas under the state’s medical cannabis law, called the Compassionate Use Act. But the law is highly restrictive, and only three dispensaries have been licensed under it to sell CBD in Texas, and only patients suffering from a rare form of epilepsy and under a doctor’s direction are allowed to buy it.”

“It’s two of my favorites, together in the perfect combination,” Nelson said in a news release. “Like coffee, cannabis is a plant that works for me.”

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Come August, Willie Nelson’s premium cannabis brand – Willie’s Reserve – will be available in select Colorado stores. The outlaw country singer is celebrating the occasion with a concert this weekend in The Centennial State.

The cannabis brand’s website proclaims, “Willie’s Reserve pays tribute to a tradition of sharing, caring and toking. It’s as if the Red Headed Stranger has offered an invitation aboard the Honeysuckle Rose to sample the choicest selections of his stash.”

Fellow marijuana aficionados can expect “top grade, meticulously grown” products, whether they’re purchasing a cannabis flower, ready rolls, CO2-extracted cannabis concentrated cartridges or disposable vape pens.

“I’ve smoked enough and I want to give back,” Nelson said. “Now that legalization is spreading across the country, there’s a great opportunity to build a company that can help a lot of people. I hope it gives social justice to those who are incarcerated for doing what we’re now doing legally. I am also committed to have our crops farmed in an environmentally responsible way; to revitalize small farms and to grow it as clean as possible. So far, I’ve really enjoyed meeting with the best growers.”

The celebratory Colorado concert is scheduled July 30 at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in Englewood.

A few days ago Nelson performed at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Wash., in honor of Willie’s Reserve being available in select Washington stores starting this month.

Fans age 21 and up can visit WilliesReserve.com for more information about the brand.

 

“I’ve smoked enough and I want to give back.”— Willie Nelson #WilliesReserve

““Consumers will be able to indulge with confidence, savoring each puff while knowing they’re partaking in an age-old ritual that has bonded marijuana-lovers together since the first dried leaves were touched with flame.”

Country music icon Willie Nelson, long an advocate of marijuana legalization, is putting his money where his mouth (and joint) is by launching Willie’s Reserve, a new marijuana brand to be introduced in Washington and Colorado over the next few months.

The writer of such classics as “Crazy,” “Always On My Mind” and “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” is following the lead of rappers including Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg and Freddie Gibbs, all of whom have entered the weed game with personalized strains.

“I’ve smoked enough and I want to give back,” said Nelson in a press release.

Country music’s most outspoken stoner promises a premium cannabis brand that’s “top-grade, meticulously grown and beautifully packaged.” To ensure a quality product, he’s consulted with horticulturalists and cannabis farmers so that, in the wording of the release, “consumers will be able to indulge with confidence, savoring each puff while knowing they’re partaking in an age-old ritual that has bonded marijuana-lovers together since the first dried leaves were touched with flame.” (Whoa.)

The announcement comes as California heads toward a November election that includes a ballot measure that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Currently the state requires a doctor’s evaluation and prescription before a resident can purchase marijuana products.

After rolling out the brand in Colorado and Washington, Nelson’s company plans on expanding as states legalize recreational use of the drug.

Except it’s not a drug, said Nelson. “I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower.”

Stay Tuned for WIllie’s Reserve

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

williesreserve2

Pot smokers in Colorado are excitedly waiting for the chance to smoke marijuana from Willie Nelson’s line of products called “Willie’s Reserve.”  No dates of an official launch or when it will be available for purchase in Colorado, or Washington State (where recreational marijuana is also legal), but the buzz around the cannabis community in Colorado is “coming soon”.

williesreserve3

The swag is so cool, too!  We should be able to buy the shirts and hats, too — I get’s lots of e-mails asking about where they can get the cool gear.  Lukas Nelson & his band are sporting the cool shirts on their concert tour this Spring.  Last night at the band’s show in Denver, Lukas gave a shout out to watch out for Willie’s Reserve.  And we are.

Keep in touch with Willie’s Reserve on their website and Facebook, Twitter @WilliesReserve and Instagram.

Willie Nelson announced the launch Willie’s Reserve last year:

williereserve3

Music legend Willie Nelson is pleased to announce a unique American enterprise: Willie’s Reserve, a cannabis brand reflecting Nelson’s own longstanding experience and his commitment to regulated, natural, and high quality strains of marijuana in U.S. legal markets. As one journalist has already noted, “The marijuana world is about to get its first connoisseur brand, edging it farther from an illegal substance and closer to the realm of fine wines.”

unnamed

Willie’s Reserve is an extension of Willie’s passion and appreciation for the many varieties and range of the plant’s qualities. Some of the best master growers in America will collaborate, along with Willie, to define quality standards so that fans can expect clean and consistent products.

Willie’s Reserve will be grown, distributed and sold by local businesses in Colorado and Washington, and will become available in other markets when state regulations allow.

Somewhat controversially, Willie has spent a lifetime as an outspoken supporter of cannabis for personal use and for industrial hemp production.

Building on Willie’s community of friends and experts who share his values, Willie’s Reserve will seek ways to further support and celebrate aspects of the singer-songwriter’s journey with cannabis. Willie and his family, and a few close friends developed the brand with emphasis on environmental and social issues, to lend support to the gradual end to marijuana prohibition across America.

“I am looking forward to working with the best growers in Colorado and Washington to make sure our product is the best on the market,” stated Willie Nelson.

Collaboration is at the center of plans for Willie’s Reserve. Willie has been an outspoken supporter of the front line efforts of store owners, growers, and citizens who have been pioneers and advocates of cannabis policy improvements. The company will work with businesses that are making smart and sustainable choices for the environment, have demonstrated leadership in their markets, and are committed to encouraging safe, legal use.

Seeing the power of legalization, regulation and taxation to impact how Americans view cannabis is a life’s work realized for Willie. As many have noted, his involvement is no surprise, and in the end, it’s no surprise that Willie’s Reserve will reflect his life.

Willie Nelson Launching New Marijuana Brand, Shops Called Willie's Reserve

Willie Nelson’s well known for toking up, but now he’s making plans to help others do so too. And in the process, he stands to make a buck.

Nelson and his family are at work on a new brand of marijuana and stores called Willie’s Reserve, which the budding company’s spokesperson compared to Whole Foods for weed in a recent interview with The Daily Beast.

According to veteran hemp and pot lobbyist Michael Bowman, speaking on behalf of Willie’s Reserve, the shops will include signature strains as well as others’ strains that are grown to meet quality standards.

“Let’s just call it the anti-Walmart model,” he said. “Personally, internally, that’s what we call it. A certain standard by which growers have to account for carbon and such, in a way that empowers small growers who are doing the right thing.”

He continued, “It will be like when you walk into a Whole Foods store. Whole Foods has their 365 brand, or you can buy Stony Brook, or you can buy Horizon… It’ll all fall under that umbrella of ‘here’s our core beliefs, and here’s our mission statement,’ and they will be a part of that, to be a part of us.”

Bowman said they’re looking to the next calendar year to open shops in states where voters have legalized marijuana, such as Colorado, Washington and Alaska.

Nelson won’t be the first musician to get into the burgeoning cannabis business. Recently Bob Marley’s estate announced the reggae icon will front a new premium brand of weed and Cypress Hill’s B Real is in the process of opening his own medical mariuana dispensary in Southern California’s Orange County.

When pressed on the 81-year-old Nelson’s actual involvement in Willie’s Reserve, Bowman put deeper significance on it than just a new business venture.

“This is a culmination of Willie’s vision and his whole life,” he said. “I’m not sure any of us could have predicted how fast the dominoes would start falling once they started falling (as far as legalization). And you have the men like Willie who’s been out there getting arrested, standing up saying what’s right and not wavering from that core.”
