February 6th would’ve been Bob Marley’s 71st birthday and, if he were alive, he’d probably be taking a couple pulls off his own marijuana strain to celebrate. To honor this notion, and because it’s a no brainer, the Marley family is launching Marley Natural — a broad-based collection of cannabis and lifestyle products based on the Kaya artist’s love and belief that “the herb” can heal and inspire all.

The official launch comes years after the famous family announced they were getting into the celebrity weed business. Though celebrity strains are trendy right now, Bob’s name is synonymous with cannabis, thanks to his influential music and lifelong campaigning. So, this new venture seems more organic and like an excellent way for the Marley family to honor Bob’s everlasting legacy. Also, when was the last time any business ever launched with this much immediate brand recognition?

“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.

The new line features four strains of Marley Brand weed, which will be available in California before being shipped to Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Nevada as well as Canada and, of course, Jamaica.

Four categories of all natural, sustainably-harvested, sun-grown cannabis flower and oils, available in sativa, indica, hybrid and CBD-rich varieties. The cannabis is grown, packaged and processed in California.

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.


Believing that cannabis is really life, the line also includes a hemp body lotion that promises to “relax, recharge and replenish,” an essential oil blend that promotes calming benefits, and even a hemp soap bar to keep you “hydrated and revitalized. You want weed lip balm? They’ve got it!

Now the only question is: should you let Bob stir it up in your most private of places?
