Willie Nelson Introduces New Cannabis Brand

Legendary singer-songwriter Willie Nelson is infamous for his cannabis-smoking, marijuana-loving persona that has earned him a legion of dedicated, lifelong fans. Now, he’s taking his image a step further with plans to start a cannabis brand called Willie’s Reserve.

According to reports, the 81-year old entertainer will not only begin offering the public signature strains, he also has plans to open dispensaries around the country in states where adult-use cannabis is legal. He’ll also be offering distribution opportunities for cultivators who meet a set of standards that account for carbon footprint and other environmental aspects. He wants to employ small, artisinal farmers under a system referred to as the “Anti-Walmart model.”

Michael Bowman, the PR for the cannabis brand, explained, “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.”

Retail locations may open as early as next year. More information will likely emerge as details are figured out. One thing is for sure, the brand will definitely be a reflection of the celebrated country musician.

“This is a culmination of Willie’s vision, and his whole life,” Bowman 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).”

      I’d jump at the opportunity to smoke, cultivate, or anything else Willie came up with concerning marijuana! Heck I was born in 1981 therefore Willie Nelson is one of the first people I remember talking about marijuana among a select other few but much later… Willie you’ve always been one of the best country music performers and I respect you now, then and honestly think you’re even more Awesome today because you don’t care, you feel free to live life!!! As a adult today I could greatly benefit from the doctor supervised use of Marijuana due to the awful seizures I suffer from because of being diagnosed with Epilepsy about ten years ago but I live in Florida…. I keep hoping and speaking out, spreading the word as much as possible but I’m not sure if Florida Legislature will ever agree to release that hold over us…. Willie I’d follow you, smoke with you, read/research or write with you Any day of the week!!!

    I hit post by mistake before proofing Above.

    corrections -1 after two tokes, it I away..2 I must give urine sample every 30 days in order to get my pain meds, if urine is positive they will not dispense or give me script for next month’s pain meds…

    I suffer from chronic pain, fibromayalgia, osteoporosis, diabetes, and depression because Of meds and pain. I tried organic, which after two toes to away my pain but hated, and I mean hated the paranoia that over powered me. Is there a strain that will not cause paranoid feelings? The other is I no longer smokes, because oF meds I get if pee test is positive, by law they cannot desperate my meds to keep me out of pain. The meds make me so tired and depressed. I want to be out of pain, laugh, do things, v I visit places and dont. Can you comment. I AM 57 AND NEW TO THIS NATURAL MEDICAL PAIN RELIEF.

    I would love to grow for Willie!

    Unfortunately, I live in one of the last states that will even consider medical marijuana. Isn’t it ironic, that Mr. Nelson became famous in the very city I love and call home, yet they would whisper behind his back about marijuana?

  65. Dara Ahrens

    March 28, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    I am a 57 year old grandmother using medical cannabis to control an acquired seizure disorder. I am also a retired medical hospice caregiver. My last and only choice to remain among the blinking and breathing IS medical cannabis. I would like to be a part of history and be able to smoke, vape, eat a Willie Nelson strain before I take my extended blink in my dirt nap and the groundhogs be bringing me my mail. It would be so especially sweet if the sweet Willie Nelson vaporized on my deck and smoked with me. My heart would surely explode. I would truly die a good death (Native American saying).

  66. Linda

    March 28, 2015 at 4:37 pm
