The Red Headed Stranger's latest cannabis brand let's you have cannabis for breakfast without getting high.
Willie Nelson recently announced that he will be launching a sister line to his Willie's Reserve brand of marijuana strains. The new brand - called Willie's Remedy - is looking to cash in on the recent success of the latest wellness trend by offering CBD-enriched coffee.
CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabis compound that is often derived from hemp, which is now legal in America. The compound has become popular in recent years for it's medicinal and wellness benefits. And it looks like it could be the next big cash crop.
"Hemp production in America was stifled for so long, but it could now make all the difference for small independent farmers," Nelson said in a statement introducing the new brand. "Hemp isn't just good for our farmers and our economy, it's good for our soil, our environment—and our health."
Each 8 oz. cup of joe (which for those of you who aren't coffee snobs, is the size of your average mug) will contain 7 milligrams of CBD. But to get the full effect, Willie's Remedy recommends that you brew the beans in something like a French press that doesn't strain the coffee through a paper filter, as that will remove much of the CBD oil from your beverage.
And don't drink it in hopes of getting high.
"The Willie's Remedy line is a purposeful departure from Willie's Reserve," said Annie Nelson, Willie's wife and the person who will be heading up the new brand. "It's not about getting high, but it's still all about Willie and the benefits we believe cannabis has to offer."
And since this stuff is made from hemp products, that means you can actually buy it no matter where you live in the country.
