Legendary singer Willie Nelson has launched his brand of CBD-infused coffee. The singer, who is known for his love of marijuana, is one of the few artists investing in CBD.

The name of the Willie Nelson coffee brand is Willie’s Remedy. This CBD-infused coffee brand is made using a recipe from Willie’s wife, Annie Nelson. Willie’s Remedy contains roasted coffee and full-spectrum hemp extract.

“The coffee is sourced from various smallholder farms in Colombia’s Santuario region, and 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 varieties: Castillo, Colombia, and Caturra, and infused with certified organic, full-spectrum hemp oil grown in Colorado,” a statement from the Willie Remedy website describing the CBD-infused coffee said.

This CBD-infused coffee line was initially launched in September last year, but it has just become available for purchase online nationwide. You can get an 8oz bag of the CBD-infused coffee for $36.

The hemp industry is gaining popularity thanks to the interest in CBD products. CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the active ingredients found in the hemp plant. Like CBD, THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is also an active ingredient in hemp. However, THC and CBD are very different. CBD does not have the psychoactive effects that THC does. CBD is reported to have many benefits for human health. The US government recently approved hemp with the passing of the Farm Bill. The Food and Drug Administration has said although there are many claims of the benefits of CBD for human health, there needs to be more research. The FDA has approved only one CBD drug which is meant for the treatment of epilepsy. However, there are many products made from CBD hitting the market such as CBD-infused beverages.

Willie’s Remedy is one of many CBD-infused drinks that will be hitting the market in 2019. Several popular beverage companies are looking to get aboard the CBD train with products of their own. One example is beverage giant Coco-Cola which has reportedly been working on its line of CBD-infused drinks. Coca-Cola is said to be working with a Canadian cannabis company to create its brand of CBD-infused beverages. Coke is not the only one, PepsiCo is reportedly also working on its line of CBD-infused drinks. PepsiCo reportedly been working on its CBD line of drinks as far back as 2018. New Age, a health-conscious beverage company, recently released its range of CBD-infused beverages in collaboration with the estate of legendary Reggae singer Bob Marley.

There are reports that another big-name beverage company Heineken is working on a line of CBD-infused drinks. Heineken will reportedly be producing its range of CBD-infused sparkling water in collaboration with AbsoluteXtracts.

The decline of soda drinks and the fact that people are getting more health conscious is one of the main reasons why many companies are looking to CBD. Another point is the popularity that CBD and the hemp industry is gathering.
