Willie’s Remedy Review

It’s a triple-digit afternoon at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic and I can’t wait to get into the air conditioning of Willie’s bus. You know the bus: holy ground, a rite of passage, one of the most notorious tour vehicles to ever endlessly crisscross American highways: the Honeysuckle Rose. But that’s not the Willie bus I’m getting on.

This bus looks similar to the Honeysuckle Rose – sans the exterior mural of horses running a mountainous terrain. It certainly smells similar to the Honeysuckle Rose. It’s often parked in proximity to the Honeysuckle Rose, but it’s not the Honeysuckle Rose. This is the Willie’s Remedy bus, a promotional RV that currently goes wherever Willie Nelson & the Family Band are playing, spreading the gospel of the country hero’s expanding line of CBD products.

On this day, the bus actually carrying Nelson hasn’t yet arrived to the Circuit of the Americas, but his secondary promotional bus seems to be a popular backstage attraction. Young Canadian folksinger Colter Wall is stepping off as I step on and the motor coach is bustling with people buzzing on cups of Willie’s Remedy coffee – comprised of CBD sourced from Colorado-grown organic hemp that’s bonded to the essential fatty acids in Colombian coffee beans during roasting.

On the Remedy bus sits Devin Jamroz, whose scrappy small business was miraculously transformed by Willie and his wife Annie Nelson.

In 2014, shortly after discovering the healing properties of cannabis while treating a herniated disc in his back, Jamroz and his roommate began experimenting with infusing coffee with THC out of their Colorado home. It was as DIY an effort as you might imagine: roasting coffee in a stovetop popcorn popper, then running into the backyard and pouring the still-smoking beans into a colander, while spritzing it with a marijuana tincture.

At the beginning they made a lot of admittedly bad coffee, but continually refined the process until they were making excellent coffee – the kind of stuff that even impresses coffee snobs and professional roasters. When the CBD market got interesting, Jamroz shifted focus away from THC and began selling bags of CBD-infused whole roasted coffee beans online. Starting out, business was slow; a really good week would see $90 in sales.

“Then there was this random customer online named Annie Nelson, who we didn’t know from ‘Annie Whoever,’” recalls Jamroz. “We’d occasionally have orders from her that were five times what we would do in a really good month. She’d order 10 pounds and we’d wonder, ‘Who is this saint?’ She’d have it shipped all over the country; we’d ship it to Texas, we’d ship it to Hawaii. It was the weirdest thing, this woman buying so much coffee, and we’re shipping it to random places.”

This went on for years. Annie would even send what Jamroz called “secret agents” or “ghost buyers” to trade shows and buy huge amounts of coffee. Eventually one of them spilled the beans on who Annie Nelson was and that her husband, iconic musician and transcendent toker Willie Nelson, was an avid drinker of Jamroz’s CBD coffee.

“We almost fell out of our chairs,” he remembers.

Now that coffee serves as the the flagship product of Willie’s Remedy, a growing line of CBD products rolled out since February. It’s a sister brand to Willie’s Reserve, which formed in 2014 and began selling adult-use cannabis two years later.

On the bus, I quickly down four cups of iced coffee. I’m a moderate – all right, heavy – THC user and I don’t want the positive effects of CBD coffee to get lost in the shuffle of other cannabinoids in my system. It’s a palatable brew; medium dark roast with an exquisitely balanced flavor. The most incredible thing about it: The CBD really balances out the caffeine. You can drink it ad infinitum and not get jittery.

It’s by no means a whopping dose of CBD. I’ve in the past experimented with putting a several-hundred-milligram CBD squirt of tincture under my tongue, which ushers an immediate and undeniable effect. Elizabeth Hogan, who co-founded Willie’s Reserve/Remedy with the Nelsons and Willie’s longtime manager Mark Rothbaum, explains that they view the 10mg dose as “daily supplement model” – good for more minor ailments and regular use.

That suits Willie. She characterizes he and Annie as “night owls” and says Willie will drink coffee long after most people go to bed.

Opening a jar of the WIllie’s Remedy Full Spectrum Soothing Balm, a shea butter/coconut oil/CBD mixture that I later rub on my knee to effectively alleviate post-basketball joint pain, I ask Hogan how seriously involved Willie actually is in the product line that bears his name.

“He’s very involved,” she insists. “First, it’s about his values: personal freedom, medical efficacy and advocacy, agricultural and environmental impact, and, finally, social justice – never looking away from the fact that there are people still sitting in jail for what we can now legally sell. “He also calls himself the ‘Chief Tester.’”

Hogan says that when she gets on Willie’s bus, he’s always eager to know what products they’re going to test.

“I’m not going to lie, he loves all of it. He’s not a scientist, he’s a musician and a poet, but in terms of how to appreciate it: The man has a lot to teach us all.”

In the week following the Picnic, I’ve been engaged in a practice that’s totally foreign to me: drinking hot tea – specifically Willie’s Remedy loose leaf green tea, also infused with full-spectrum hemp oil. When steeped for two minutes (I’ve learned that over-steeping causes green tea to turn bitter), it’s a pleasant, natural-tasting beverage that accentuates the benefit of low-dose CBD that I find most rewarding: relaxation and relief from stress.

Willie and Annie Nelson add new products to Willie’s Remedy

Thursday, July 11th, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas-The hemp wellness brand Willie’s Remedy, from the company co-founded by musician Willie Nelson and wife Annie Nelson, is releasing two new products: Willie’s Remedy Relief Balm and Willie’s Remedy Tea. Meanwhile, Willie continues headlining the 17-city Outlaw Music Festival tour and celebrates the release of his new studio album, Ride Me Back Home.  

These new offerings, infused with full-spectrum hemp oil, arrive close on the heels of the brand’s resoundingly successful debut of its flagship product, Willie’s Remedy Coffee, and Willie’s Remedy Hemp Oil Tincture.    “Willie’s Remedy is all about giving people easy access to the healing benefits of hemp in the same way we look to other plants for wellness,” Mrs. Nelson said. “By expanding our product line to include a topical, tea and decaf coffee we hope to bring this amazing plant to new audiences.”

Willie’s Remedy Relief Balm is inspired by a cannabis topical that Annie Nelson created in her kitchen and has used for years, along with her husband, his band and numerous friends. Carefully formulated to enhance the effectiveness of every one of its ingredients, the muscle balm contains shea butter, coconut oil, and full spectrum hemp flower oil concentrate, as well as menthol, plant-derived Vitamin E, organic lavender and CO2-extracted arnica concentrate. 

“Studies have shown hemp compounds have the ability to reduce inflammation,” Mrs. Nelson said. “So whether you’re a touring musician who plays 100 shows a year or someone with regular garden-variety aches and pains, this balm is a great plant-based essential.”

The two varieties of Willie’s Remedy Tea were created in response to the enthusiastic reception for the brand’s hemp-infused coffee, which now offers a decaf version as well. The coffees and teas are infused with full-spectrum hemp oil and contain no isolates or additive ingredients.   

“Just like our coffee, our teas are pure plant beverages,” Mrs. Nelson said. “The infusion process to add the hemp extract to the tea is all-natural, with no added chemicals, preservatives or binding agents.”    Each 3 oz. package of tea is infused with 300 milligrams of full-spectrum hemp oil, and makes about 28 servings for around 10 milligrams per cup. The green and black teas can be served hot or iced, each cup helps to bolster the body’s endocannabinoid system with naturally occurring hemp cannabinoids and terpenes.  

“Everything we create for Willie’s Remedy, we use,” Mrs. Nelson said. “We’re believers in the therapeutic power of plant-based wellness, and of bringing hemp compounds into our daily diet. All of these products are made to support health and complement a life well-lived.”   All products are available online and at select stores beginning in July.   Willie’s Remedy is a sponsor of the Outlaw Music Festival Tour, the packed lineup’s second leg begins in September and features Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters, Luke Combs, Bonnie Raitt, The Avett Brothers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Alison Krauss, Gov’t Mule, Brothers Osborne, and Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real.

Willie Nelson’s Hemp Derived CBD Brand Releases 
New Full-Spectrum Tincture and Double Strength
Hemp-Infused Coffee

AUSTIN, Texas – The hemp wellness brand Willie’s Remedy inspired by musician Willie Nelson and wife Annie Nelson is coming soon to local markets in the U.S., with new products and expanded availability to retail accounts.  

“Our debut in February was such a success that we’re opening up distribution to meet the demand,” said Annie Nelson. “We’re excited to roll out new products too, adding more ways to receive the benefits of hemp in day-to-day life with Willie’s Remedy Hemp Oil Tincture and two types of hemp-infused whole bean coffee.”   

The brand’s flagship product, Willie’s Remedy Whole Bean Coffee, is a medium-dark blend sourced from various smallholder farms in Colombia and infused with certified organic, full-spectrum hemp oil. The blend comes in regular strength (each 8-ounce cup of coffee contains 7 mg of naturally occurring hemp-derived CBD) and extra strength (which yields 15 mg of hemp-derived CBD per 8-ounce cup). 

“Our craft roasters use a simple and natural infusion process that took years to perfect,” Nelson said. “There are no added chemicals, preservatives or binding agents – it’s a pure, plant-enriched coffee.” 

The new Willie’s Remedy Hemp Oil Tincture is made with Colorado-grown organic hemp flower that is concentrated into a full-spectrum extract, then infused into organic fractionated coconut oil (MCT oil). The tincture can be consumed on its own or with food or drink as part of a daily routine; it comes in two sizes and two formulations (10 mg CBD per serving and 25 mg per serving).

“We have a dropper of tincture at the start of the day,” Nelson said. “It’s also great added to a smoothie or with a little apple cider vinegar as a dressing. It’s fat soluble so it blends well with other oils.”  

The Willie’s Remedy wellness product line is non-intoxicating and infused with full-spectrum hemp oil extract. The plant compounds in full-spectrum hemp oil interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). A growing body of research shows strong evidence that the ECS is responsible for maintaining equilibrium for a number of systems and functions, playing a role in sleep, regulating the body’s inflammatory response and more.  

All of the hemp used to create the Willie’s Remedy product line is organically grown by American farmers. The Nelsons made headlines in 2015 when they introduced the cannabis brand Willie’s Reserve, which taps a carefully selected network of state-licensed cultivators to provide the main ingredient for products sold in legal medical or adult-use cannabis markets.   Willie’s Remedy products are for sale at williesremedy.com.

Willie Nelson’s Remedy: Hemp-Infused Coffee

Now you and your family can wake up every morning with Willie Nelson in your coffee cup.

Back in February, Texas country music legend, Willie Nelson and his family debuted a “hemp-infused” product line, “Willie’s Remedy.” The first product to be released will be “Willie’s Remedy Whole Bean Coffee,” a certified, organic hemp oil grown in Colorado, infused with whole-bean coffee.

It’s no surprise that Willie has been a long time U.S. farming activist, leading the charge for American grown products. Willie’s Remedy features non-intoxicating hemp-based products designed for health-conscious consumers of all ages.

According to Nelson, hemp production in America has been stifled for so long. “Now, it could make all the difference for small independent farmers,” Nelson said. “Hemp isn’t just good for our farmers and our economy, but it’s good for our soil, our environment, and our health.”

The product can be found online here and can be purchased in all 50 states.
