Marley Natural™ Debuts Premium Cannabis Products

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Marley
Natural
, the official Bob Marley cannabis brand, today debuted a
broad-based collection of cannabis and lifestyle products designed with
deep respect for Bob Marley’s legacy and belief in the positive
potential of the herb to heal and inspire us.


“We are fortunate to be living during a promising time of positive
change, especially with regard to cannabis and how people understand it.
My dad would be so happy to see so many people appreciating the natural,
healing power of the herb. We are thrilled to be sharing Marley
Natural
products with the world just in time for his 71st
birthday,” said Cedella Marley, Bob Marley’s daughter.

Marley Natural’s inaugural product line includes:

  • Four categories of all-natural, locally-sourced, sun-grown cannabis
    flower and oil;
  • A naturally-derived line of body care products that blend the
    moisturizing power of hemp seed oil with Jamaican botanicals; and
  • A collection of smoking, storage and preparation accessories made from
    sustainably grown American Black Walnut wood and heat-resistant,
    hand-blown glass.

Sun-Grown Cannabis Flower and Oil

Marley Natural cannabis flower and oil are hand-selected from
local farms run by experienced growers committed to sustainable growing
practices. Sun-grown, natural and untainted by harmful pesticides,
chemicals or fertilizers, all Marley Natural products are tested
and clearly labeled for potency, purity and safety. Initially available
exclusively in California, distribution of Marley Natural
cannabis flower and oil will expand to other U.S. states where cannabis
is legal in 2016 and internationally in 2017. Marley Natural
cannabis flower and oil are available in four categories, each featuring
different strains depending on harvest availability:

  • Marley Green features hybrid strains recommended for people
    beginning their journey with Marley Natural. Marley Green
    strains have balanced levels of THC that combine the cerebral effects
    of sativa with the physical relaxation of indica. Marley Green strains
    are appropriate for anytime use.
  • Marley Gold features sativa strains that offer energetic,
    uplifting effects that may produce a more cerebral experience compared
    to other cannabis strains. Marley Gold strains are appropriate for
    daytime use.
  • Marley Red features CBD-rich strains that combine CBD and THC
    in a beneficial ratio. CBD-rich cannabis is frequently reported to
    provide patients and consumers with anti-inflammatory, analgesic and
    anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects of strains
    high in THC. Marley Red strains are appropriate for anytime use.
  • Marley Black features indica strains recommended for
    connoisseurs seeking a more physical, full-body experience. Marley
    Black strains are high in THC and appropriate for nighttime use.

Naturally-Derived Hemp Seed Body Care Infused with Jamaican
Botanicals

The Marley Natural body care line offers naturally-derived
formulas that blend the moisturizing power of hemp seed oil with
Jamaican botanicals (including ginger, lemongrass, turmeric, and
cerasse). All formulas contain cold-pressed hemp seed oil rich in
essential fatty acids, Omega-3s and Omega-6s. All formulas are paraben,
sulfate and cruelty free. Body care products are available for sale
nationally via www.MarleyNaturalShop.com
and will be available in select retailers in the U.S. beginning in
mid-2016. The hemp seed body care products include an essential oil
blend, body lotion, body wash, body salve, hand cream, bar soap and a
lip balm.

Sustainably Grown American Black Walnut Accessories

Balancing intuitive design with Jamaican-inspired accents, Marley
Natural
’s collection of smoking, storage and preparation accessories
cater to discerning herb connoisseurs who celebrate the ritual of
smoking. The collection features products made from sustainably grown
American Black Walnut wood and heat-resistant, hand-blown glass. Each
product is designed to ensure durability, convenient maintenance, and a
comfortable hand-held feel. The accessories are designed only to be used
with legal smoking herbs and may not be used with tobacco products. The
collection is available for sale nationally via www.MarleyNaturalShop.com
and will be made available in select retailers in the U.S. beginning in
mid-2016. The collection includes a taster, a spoon pipe, a steamroller,
a bubbler, and a grinder, as well as prep trays and storage devices.

Rise Up and Spread Bob Marley’s Message of Positivity, Social
Justice and Respect for Nature

In the spirit of giving back, both to Jamaica and to communities that
have been harmed by cannabis prohibition, Marley Natural has
created a philanthropic initiative called Rise Up powered by
GlobalGiving, a global nonprofit that connects donors with grassroots
projects around the world. Rise Up will fund a series of
carefully curated projects around the world that reflect Bob Marley’s
vision for an inclusive and compassionate community where people take
care of each other and the environment.

“It is extremely important to us and to the family that Marley
Natural
operates with integrity and a strong social conscience,”
said Tahira Rehmatullah, General Manager of Marley Natural. “We
source our products in an environmentally and socially responsible way,
as we believe Bob Marley would have wanted. We are also committed to
giving back to Jamaica and communities harmed by prohibition through Rise
Up
, which will grow in scale and scope as we expand our operations
globally.”
