AUSTIN, Texas – The hemp wellness brand Willie’s Remedy inspired by musician Willie Nelson and wife Annie Nelson is coming soon to local markets in the U.S., with new products and expanded availability to retail accounts.
“Our debut in February was such a success that we’re opening up distribution to meet the demand,” said Annie Nelson. “We’re excited to roll out new products too, adding more ways to receive the benefits of hemp in day-to-day life with Willie’s Remedy Hemp Oil Tincture and two types of hemp-infused whole bean coffee.”
The brand’s flagship product, Willie’s Remedy Whole Bean Coffee, is a medium-dark blend sourced from various smallholder farms in Colombia and infused with certified organic, full-spectrum hemp oil. The blend comes in regular strength (each 8-ounce cup of coffee contains 7 mg of naturally occurring hemp-derived CBD) and extra strength (which yields 15 mg of hemp-derived CBD per 8-ounce cup).
“Our craft roasters use a simple and natural infusion process that took years to perfect,” Nelson said. “There are no added chemicals, preservatives or binding agents – it’s a pure, plant-enriched coffee.”
The new Willie’s Remedy Hemp Oil Tincture is made with Colorado-grown organic hemp flower that is concentrated into a full-spectrum extract, then infused into organic fractionated coconut oil (MCT oil). The tincture can be consumed on its own or with food or drink as part of a daily routine; it comes in two sizes and two formulations (10 mg CBD per serving and 25 mg per serving).
“We have a dropper of tincture at the start of the day,” Nelson said. “It’s also great added to a smoothie or with a little apple cider vinegar as a dressing. It’s fat soluble so it blends well with other oils.”
The Willie’s Remedy wellness product line is non-intoxicating and infused with full-spectrum hemp oil extract. The plant compounds in full-spectrum hemp oil interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). A growing body of research shows strong evidence that the ECS is responsible for maintaining equilibrium for a number of systems and functions, playing a role in sleep, regulating the body’s inflammatory response and more.
All of the hemp used to create the Willie’s Remedy product line is organically grown by American farmers. The Nelsons made headlines in 2015 when they introduced the cannabis brand Willie’s Reserve, which taps a carefully selected network of state-licensed cultivators to provide the main ingredient for products sold in legal medical or adult-use cannabis markets.
