Willie Nelson’s Budding Cannabis Business Grows to a New High


Willie’s Reserve™ Launches Sungrown Line

DENVER, Jan. 31, 2018 /Weed Wire/ — Award-winning music legend and marijuana advocate Willie Nelson has announced that his legendary WILLIE’S RESERVE™ cannabis stash will launch a new product line sourced from Sungrown cannabis. New products releasing in February will include packaged flower and ready rolls, in a variety of terpene-rich strains. Sungrown is just that – beautiful crafted cannabis raised outdoors throughout Colorado and Washington.

February also brings an expansion to the Annie’s Edibles’ product line of WILLIE’S RESERVE™, with Annie Nelson’s signature whole-plant infused chocolates hitting the shelves of select retail outlets for the first time in Colorado along with infused lozenges, which debuted in December. In Washington, Annie’s Edibles build on its line of available products to include chocolates infused with CBD & THC.

Launched in 2016, WILLIE’S RESERVE™ legendary stash of cannabis products are now available in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Nevada.

“We’re on the right side of history,” said Willie. “People have spoken with their votes and their dollars. Now that we’ve proven regulating and taxing is good for individuals and business and states, it’s pretty clear that pot is good for America.”

WILLIE’S RESERVE™ includes cannabis grown by independent farmers in states where cannabis is legal. Including Sungrown to add more varieties to the existing product line is a nod to the sweeping impact of legalization. Sungrown cannabis is cultivated outdoors and benefits from the attention of farmers and Mother Nature.

“I’m glad a lot of these guys can come out of the shadows, back in to the sunlight. Cannabis is also creating some good opportunities for American farmers.” Willie stated.

Annie’s Edibles are handcrafted, infused chocolates made from carefully sourced ingredients. The chocolate comes from Fine & Raw Chocolate, who use consciously sourced ingredients and low-heat techniques to keep the chocolate’s raw vitality and flavor. As part of the WILLIE’S RESERVE™ legendary cannabis stash, Annie’s Edibles are infused using a proprietary whole-plant cannabis extraction process that maintains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, in low dose confections.

The four flavors in the collection include:
-Maui Espresso Bean – Features espresso beans from Ono Organic Farm in Maui, Hawaii
-Roasted Cacao Nibs – Chocolates feature cacao sourced from New York City’s Fine & Raw Chocolate
-Dark Chocolate – Accented with Himalayan pink sea salt from Himala Salt
-Chocolate Almond – Made with almonds from Burroughs Family Farms in California in partnership with Equal Exchange to support small-scale farmers

“Our partners put the same love and care into their businesses as I put into my infused chocolates with healthy ingredients and the finest chocolate available,” said Annie Nelson. Annie’s goal is to deliver edibles that offer all the benefits of cannabis, with no compromises to quality of the ingredients.

Annie’s Edibles’ infused hard candies are also made from premium, carefully sourced ingredients. The naturally derived flavors are crafted using only 100% organic, GMO-free ingredients. The edibles are infused with pure CO2 THC distillate, in 10 mg or 5 mg lozenges. This process also creates a highly consistent, great tasting product.

The flavors in the line include:
-Honeysuckle Hot
-Fresh Maple Blossom
-Strawberry Lemonade
-Cherry Watermelon
-Sour Tangie
-Mountain Berry
