Synonymous with the Bob Marley name is cannabis, a plant the legendary artist strongly believed in as a spiritual and creative aid, a tool for accessing one’s true self, and a medicine that would ‘heal the nations.’ Bob Marley dreamed to see marijuana liberated, and today we’re finally beginning to see that dream awakened.
In remembrance of his life and legacy, Bob Marley’s family and Leafly’s parent company Privateer Holdings have come together to establish Marley Natural, a collection of cannabis products including topicals, accessories, and heirloom strains from the artist’s Jamaican homeland. These products, which aim to embody Marley’s vision of freedom and wellness, will be released in late 2015 to legal markets around the world.
Fifty years ago, Bob Marley helped roll the stone of prohibition away with his advocacy for responsible personal consumption. Today, we are blessed to witness these ideas flower into change – a change that signifies an opening of the global mind and an intolerance toward the social injustices that arrived with marijuana prohibition. We’re excited to see how this newest tribute to Bob Marley will rekindle his beliefs and inspire further change in the world’s view of cannabis.
