– Willie's Remedy, the company co-founded by Willie Nelson and wife Annie Nelson, is releasing two new products: Willie's Remedy Relief Balm and Willie's Remedy Tea, he announced today.
The new items, infused with hemp oil, arrive after the debut of Willie's Remedy Coffee, and Willie's Remedy Hemp Oil Tincture.
"Willie's Remedy is all about giving people easy access to the healing benefits of hemp in the same way we look to other plants for wellness," Annie Nelson said. "By expanding our product line to include a topical, tea and decaf coffee, we hope to bring this amazing plant to new audiences."
Willie's Remedy Relief Balm is inspired by a cannabis topical that Annie Nelson created in her kitchen and has used for years, along with her husband, his band and numerous friends.
"Studies have shown hemp compounds have the ability to reduce inflammation," she said. "So whether you're a touring musician who plays 100 shows a year or someone with regular garden-variety aches and pains, this balm is a great plant-based essential."
"Just like our coffee, our teas are pure plant beverages," she said. "The infusion process to add the hemp extract to the tea is all-natural, with no added chemicals, preservatives or binding agents."
"Everything we create for Willie's Remedy, we use," she said. "We're believers in the therapeutic power of plant-based wellness and of bringing hemp compounds into our daily diet. All of these products are made to support health and complement a life well-lived."
All products are available online and at select stores beginning in July, in time for Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic in Austin. The annual event takes place at the Circuit of The Americas and features Willie Nelson & Family, Luke Combs, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Colter Wall, Hayes Carll, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Gene Watson, Billy Joe Shaver, Johnny Bush, Folk Uke, Raelyn Nelson Band, The Casey Kristofferson Band and David Allan Coe.
