His latest releases never cease to amaze us, and so it goes with Willie Nelson‘s hemp-infused coffee. You read that right. Willie’s most recent project wasn’t of a musical nature, but it may start your day on a high note (…yes, pun intended). Willie Nelson’s new coffee is CBD-infused. Cannabidiol (CBD) comes from hemp, but unlike marijuana, it won’t make you high. So while weed-puns are fun, there’s no worry that this coffee will get you stoned.

In 2015, this beloved singer of outlaw country, playing to the beat of his own drum, announced he was launching Willie’s Reserve – his own cannabis company. Long recognized as an advocate of cannabis, Nelson’s foray into the wide world of weed came as no surprise to his fans. Willie’s Reserve was originally grown and sold by in Washington and Colorado, however, as additional states started to regulate cannabis, a number of outlets have made it available in many more areas. “Willie’s Reserve is an extension of [my] passion and appreciation for the many varieties and range of the plant’s qualities. Some of the best master growers in America will collaborate… to define quality standards so that fans can expect clean and consistent products,” he explained. Since then, the company has provided unique offerings, but his latest launch is getting us all brewed up!

Now the singer is launching his newest brand, CBD products sold under the name Willie’s Remedy. A line of health and wellness products “to supplement a legendary life well-lived,” the new offering has fans lining up for its hemp-infused coffee. Based on the company’s website, the product is “…sourced from various smallholder farms in Colombia’s Santuario region, it’s a medium-dark blend with balanced acidity that packs a powerful aroma, with flavor notes of cherry and cocoa. The proprietary coffee blend is composed of three bean varietals: Castillo, Colombia, and Caturra, and infused with certified organic, full-spectrum hemp oil grown in Colorado.”

An 8oz bag of this unique drink sells for $36. To many, that might be steep, but for something that, at least according to Nelson, is high in health benefits, it’s a nominal amount. The singer/songwriter/actor has his family involved in the process as well. His wife Annie will be overseeing the Willie’s Remedy line and plans to launch other similarly unique products within the coming year. “The Willie’s Remedy line is a purposeful departure from Willie’s Reserve,” said Annie Nelson. “It’s not about getting high, but it’s still all about Willie and the benefits we believe cannabis has to offer.”

The 86-year-old entertainer, who’s made a life in the Texas Hill Country, was recently honored in Nashville, Tennessee, in a broadcast taped for A&E, airing this spring. Countless stars sang his songs, collaborated with him, and even set their own “firsts,” such as the duet that George Strait sang with Nelson especially for the show. We’re looking forward to seeing the taping, as well as hearing the reviews of Willie’s Remedy!
