It has been over a year since Marley Natural (a Bob Marley branded line of cannabis products) was first announced. The Bob Marley weed will be on sale starting February 6, which would have been the 71st birthday of the Jamaican reggae singer who achieved international fame and acclaim.
The Marley Natural offers four categories of cannabis, which is available in both flower and oil forms. The Bob Marley products will only be on sale in California; however, according to NBC News, it will expand to other weed-legal states (Colorado, Washington, Nevada and Oregon) in 2016. In 2017, the Marley Natural will be launched internationally.
In the Marley Green category’s strain, it consists of indica or sativa hybrids, and the product is meant for beginners, while the Marley Red strains are heavier on the CBD (Cannabidiol) but don’t have a heavy psychoactive effect. The Marley Gold category will have more energetic sativa strains. And the Marley Black strains are meant for the experts for its heavy THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) strains “appropriate for nighttime use.”
Cedella Marley, the Jamaican legend’s daughter, stated, “We are favored to be living during a promising time of positive change, especially with regard to the weed and how individuals understand it.
“My father would be so glad to see so many people appreciating the natural, healing power of the herb.”
However, the brand named for Bob Marley has done well since the musician died at the age of 36 in 1981. Marley ranks fourth on the Forbes list of top-earning celebrities who passed away due to the sales of products that include lifestyle lines and beverages.
Tahira Rehmatullah, Marley Natural general manager, said in a statement, “It is extremely essential for us and to the family that Marley Natural operates with integrity and a strong social conscience.
“We source our products in an environmentally and socially responsible way, as we believe Bob Marley would have wanted.”
