“Herb is the unification of mankind” – Bob Marley

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Marley
Natural
, the official Bob Marley cannabis brand, is proud to launch
its inaugural collection of premium cannabis flower and oil in
Washington state. The products join Marley Natural’s lifestyle
accessories and body care lines already offered in the state. Starting

alongside its smoking and other lifestyle accessories at cannabis
retailers in the Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia areas.


Marley Natural’s product lines include:

    (high-CBD), and Marley Black (indica);
  • Body care products infused with the moisturizing power of cold-pressed
    hemp seed oil and blended with other natural Jamaican botanicals; and

On Saturday, Marley Natural celebrated its Washington launch at a gathering
for lifestyle and cannabis influencers
featuring music from Bob
Marley’s granddaughters Zuri and Shacia Marley, as well as Jamaican
reggae artist Yaadcore.

All Marley Natural products are designed with deep respect for Bob
Marley’s legacy and belief in the positive potential of the herb to heal
and inspire us. Marley Natural cannabis is currently available in
dispensaries across California, Oregon, and Washington in accordance
with local laws and regulations. Cannabis retail locations can be found
at www.MarleyNatural.com/Find.
Lifestyle accessories and body care products are available nationwide at
specialty retailers as well as online at www.MarleyNaturalShop.com.

“We are fortunate to be living during a promising time of positive
change, especially with regard to cannabis. We believe our father would
be so happy to see more people understanding the unique properties of
the plant,” said Cedella Marley, Bob’s daughter.

Rise Up™: Marley Natural Gives Back to Washington

In the spirit of giving back to both Jamaica and communities that have
been harmed by cannabis prohibition, Marley Natural has created a social
impact initiative called Rise Up. Rise Up funds a series of carefully
curated projects that reflect Bob’s vision for an inclusive and
compassionate community where people take care of each other and the
environment. More details about Rise Up are available at www.MarleyNatural.com/RiseUp.

In Washington, Marley Natural is joining forces with the Minority
Cannabis Business Association (MCBA), the first non-profit organization
created specifically to progress the cannabis industry by increasing
diversity, and the Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP), a
non-profit composed of police and other criminal justice professionals
dedicated to implementing drug policy and criminal justice solutions
that improve public safety, to host Rise Up programs in Seattle.

In partnership with MCBA, Marley Natural will host a Rise Up event to
help men and women convicted of non-violent cannabis offenses file to
vacate felony judgments and be released from associated penalties.
Applicants will be pre-screened for eligibility by the event’s legal
team (organized by Marley Natural) and work with volunteers on the day
of the event to complete their application. Alongside that event, LEAP
will host a Know Your Rights class to educate the community about local
cannabis rights and the MCBA will host a responsible consumption
workshop.

About Marley Natural Products

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. All Marley Natural products are tested and clearly labeled
for potency, purity, and safety prior to sale. 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 high 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 Cannabis Sativa 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.
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 Sourced American Black Walnut Smoking Accessories

Balancing intuitive design with Jamaican-inspired accents, Marley
Natural’s smoking accessories cater to discerning herb connoisseurs who
celebrate the ritual of smoking. The collection features products made
from sustainably sourced American Black Walnut wood and heat-resistant,
hand-blown glass, all boxed in 100% recyclable packaging. Each product
is designed to ensure durability, convenient maintenance, and a
comfortable hand-feel. The accessories are designed to be used only with
legal smoking herbs and are not intended to be used with tobacco
products. The collection is available for sale nationwide at specialty
retailers, as well as online at www.MarleyNaturalShop.com.
The collection includes a taster, a spoon pipe, a steamroller, a
bubbler, and a grinder, as well as prep trays and storage devices.

Washington, Oregon, and California in accordance with state and local
laws and regulations. Marley Natural cannabis products have intoxicating
