At 86, the Red Headed Stranger himself, Willie Nelson, still has a few tricks up his sleeve. The latest trick: selling you coffee at the price of $36 for an 8 ounce bag.
Of course, that’s not just any coffee. They say beans are the magical fruit, but these coffee beans are even more magical than usual. They’re infused with CBD.
The product, called Willie’s Remedy, went on the market Monday. According to the official website, “Willie’s Remedy infused coffee combines the benefits of cannabis with other plants. Whole bean coffee is carefully selected and roasted, then infused with full spectrum hemp extract. The result is a balancing effect to coffee’s natural lift, a perfect harmony of focus from the caffeine plus calm from the cannabis.”
The eight-time Grammy winner also sells weed and hash oil and THC-infused edibles in another retail line called Willie’s Reserve available in the states with friendly weed laws.
If you’re not familiar, CBD is a cannabinoid compound commonly found in weed. Under the federal Controlled Substance Act, CBD derived from cannabis is still a Schedule I substance. That’s the most restrictive of all drug classifications. For context, PCP is a Schedule II substance. Unlike PCP, however, CBD does not cause disassociation similar to that found in schizophrenics or self-harm, or death by overdose. Instead, CBD is known for curing sick children and relaxing everyone else. That’s why Willie Nelson is not selling PCP and, instead, he’s selling CBD in his coffee.
