Marley’s favorite herb is coming to the U.S. in the form of lotions and other accessories.
In a deal announced this week, the image of late reggae superstar Bob Marley will soon adorn the packaging of a global brand of marijuana and hemp-infused products bearing the name “ Marley Natural.”
According to Adweek, an agreement was reached between the estate of the music icon, who died in 1981 from a rare acral melanoma, and a newly formed company funded by Seattle-based venture firm Privateer Holdings. Marley Natural will reportedly become available late next year and will consist of cannabis-infused lotions, creams, accessories, and mass produced “fine cannabis,” described as “heirloom Jamaican cannabis strains” that Marley himself smoked and enjoyed.
Marley Natural hopes to take advantage of the growing market in legal cannabis products in the United States as well as internationally.
