Willie Nelson releases new strain, “Last Man Standing”

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

Country music legend Willie Nelson released Last Man Standing on April 27th. That last sentence may seem unremarkable—he has released 66 previous albums, after all—yet it gets a little more exciting when you realize Last Man Standing isn’t just the name of Willie’s latest record. It’s also the name of his latest marijuana strain.

Nelson, who celebrated his 85th birthday on April 29th, has been in the music business for 62 years. While he’s famously been an advocate of the marijuana plant since the 1960s, his time in the marijuana business—at least officially—began much more recently in 2015. That’s when Nelson co-founded Willie’s Reserve, a brand that sells paraphernalia, edibles, and old-fashioned buds on the United States’ growing legal marijuana market.

Considering Nelson’s music and marijuana ventures, it’s no surprise that some co-branding is in order. If anything, the only surprise is that it’s taken this long to happen. Last Man Standing is the fourth album that the prolific singer, songwriter, and musician has released since 2015, but it’s the first to lend its name to a Willie’s Reserve product.

“It comes from this huge plant with beautiful buds,” Shane Osburn, who bred and cultivated the strain at Sol Grow Mendocino with his wife Amelia. “It’s so expressive of its characteristics. When you walk past the plant it smells like an orange tree.”

“Willie is a soldier for the cannabis community,” adds Amelia. “We have total respect for how he’s told the world about what we do, through his music and through who he is… We’ve come pretty damn far from the point where they’d put you in prison for life for a seed to where we are now. It’s a lot of progress.”

Annie Nelson and #Willie Reserve at Women Grow Meet Up in Denver

On February 1-2, more than 500 people gathered at the Westin Hotel in Denver for the fourth annual Women Grow Leadership Summit. The theme, “Change-Transition-Evolution,” addressed shifts in the cannabis industry.

Speakers included 12-year-old patient Alexis Bortell, who’s among the plaintiffs in a suit to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act; medical-marijuana pioneer Alice O’Leary; Michelle Dumay, a courageous mother who gave an emotional talk about being an African-American Muslim woman that treats her daughter’s seizures with cannabis; and Annie Nelson, wife of Willie Nelson and proprietor of Annie’s Edibles.

TED-style “Lightning Talks” drew the likes of Hope Wiseman, the youngest African-American dispensary owner (Mary and Main in Capitol Heights, Md.) in the country; Caela Bintner, who discussed the #TimesUp movement and sexual harassment in the workplace; Dasheeda Dawson, who segued from her show-stopping hip-hop dance (a Summit first) to a discourse on facing adversity; Lynnette Shaw, one of California’s first dispensary owners; and Cannabis Cultural Association’s Jake Plowden, Nelson Guerrero and Joe Bondy.

One of the most popular breakout sessions, “Know the Law to Joint Rolling Sessions with Jane West,” had the whole room fashioning joints and spliffs (see photo of Nelson and Lauren Rudick above). Another session offered advice on “Investing and Raising Capital for Your Cannabis Business.”

Women Grow CEO Kristina Garcia announced the following leadership changes: Dr. Chanda Macias is the new chair of the Board of Managers. She’s a former research specialist for Colgate Palmolive Company and current CEO of National Holistic Healing Center in Washington, D.C. Cofounder Jane West stepped down as chair, but will remain on the board. The seven-seat board also includes Garcia and Jazmin Hupp, with three seats open.

In addition, the organization is expanding into several new markets and will soon launch the Women Grow TV channel on twitch.tv in partnership with LOOT Interactive. This spring and fall, we’ll be connecting with colleges and universities across the country for a series of “Women Grow Campus Talks.”

Our goal is to continue to support and build the next generation of cannabis leaders while forming stronger relationships inside and outside of the industry by creating unique strategic partnerships. “The 2018 theme truly tied into the heart of the direction of which we’re taking the company,” Garcia stated, “Women Grow is an important organization for women in cannabis today and we must keep pushing the envelope forward.”

Willie Nelson’s marijuana brand expanding

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

DENVER — Capital raises in the marijuana industry appear to be continuing unabated since the issuance of the Sessions Memo on Jan. 4.

Country music star Willie Nelson’s cannabis company joined the marijuana funding fray Wednesday with the announcement of a $12 million raise for expansion into new markets.

Nelson’s company, GHC Inc., plans to enter the California market with its Willie’s Reserve brand during the spring of 2018, according to GHC spokeswoman Tia Mattson.

GHC already has products available in Colorado, Oregon, Nevada and Washington state.

The company raised the $12 million in a convertible note, Series B funding.

According to Mattson, the round was led by a network of high-net worth individuals, institutional investors and two cannabis-focused venture capital firms, Tuatara Capital and Hypur Ventures.

The $12 million raise brings GHC’s total raise to nearly $30 million, Mattson said. She added that GHC is confident that a new upcoming funding round aimed at hitting $40 million “will go quickly” based on “current investor enthusiasm for the market.”

Aside from funding the California expansion, GHC will use the raise to:

— Expand the company’s edibles line in Washington state.

— Launch an edibles product line in Colorado.

— Add “premium sun-grown cannabis” to its product offerings from “sustainable outdoor grows” in Colorado and Washington state, Mattson said.
