Marley Natural are launching their product range in the San Francisco bay area today, according to a press release from parent company Privateer Holdings:

Marley Natural, the official Bob Marley cannabis brand, today debuted a broad-based collection of cannabis and lifestyle products in retail locations throughout the Bay Area. The products are designed with deep respect for Bob’s legacy and belief in the positive potential of the herb to heal and inspire us. Three collectives will be the first in the Bay Area to offer Marley Natural cannabis flower and oil to their members: Harborside Health Center (Oakland, San Jose), SPARC (San Francisco) and CBCB (Berkeley)

Having debuted their cannabis products in Los Angeles in February, Marley Natural’s range of relaxation-orientated herbals are hitting San Franciscan shelves, with similar launches planned for Colorado, Oregon and Washington within the next few months.

Marley Natural’s ‘inaugural collection’ will be offering the following…

  • Four categories (Green, Gold, Red and Black) of all-natural, locally-sourced, sun-grown cannabis flower and oil;
  • Body care products infused with the moisturizing power of cold-pressed hemp seed oil blended and mixed with other natural Jamaican botanicals; and
  • A collection of smoking accessories made from sustainably grown American black walnut wood and heat-resistant, hand-blown glass.

The launch of recreational and therapeutic cannabis products like those of Marley Natural and similar brands represents an encouraging repositioning of cannabis as a safe, positive lifestyle supplement in the public eye.

Buoyant with the blessing of the Marley family, Marley Natural looks poised to push forward in the States.

On the other side of the Atlantic, those in the UK starting to feel a tad canna-curious (in the midst of the herb’s increasingly positive press), will have to wait for now.
