Bob Marley’s family brand of Cannabis is launching in Oregon. Marley Natural® has partnered with Oregon growers and dispensaries to launch their line of products across the state. Their products will be available starting August 24, 2016, at Nectar locations, Serra locations, and other cannabis dispensaries and retailers soon in the Portland metro area , Eugene and beyond.
“Marley Natural® products are crafted with awareness, authenticity, and a genuine respect for nature’s nourishing benefits,” the company said in a statement. “Our cannabis flower and oil, accessories and body care products are all responsibly sourced and integrity driven. Each of our offerings is a direct reflection of the Marley ethos that integrates nature’s goodness with a belief in the positive potential of herb.”
The company launched earlier this year on Bob’s 71st birthday with their line of all-natural cannabis flower and oils, lifestyle accessories and body care. All their products are sustainably harvested and made with sungrown cannabis flower. They use their own proprietary strains in their products:
♦ Marley Green features hybrid strains recommended for people beginning their journey with Marley Natural®.
♦ Marley Gold features sativa strains that offer energetic, uplifting effects that may produce a more cerebral experience compared to other cannabis strains.
♦ Marley Red features CBD-rich strains that combine CBD and THC in a beneficial ratio. CBD-rich cannabis is frequently reported to provide patients and consumers with anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects of strains high in THC.
♦ Marley Black features indica strains recommended for connoisseurs seeking a more physical, full-body experience.
♦ Marley Natural® cannabis flower is offered in 3.5 gram jars.
♦ Marley Natural® supercritical CO2 cannabis oil cartridges are offered in 500 mg
♦ Marley Natural® Pre-rolls will also be available in Oregon

Marley Natural® is also a philanthropic organization. They are supporting efforts in Jamaica and other communities around the world that have been harmed by cannabis prohibition. They created Rise Up™, a program in conjunction with GlobalGiving, a global nonprofit that connects donors with grassroots projects around the world.
“Rise Up™ will fund a series of carefully curated projects around the world that reflect Bob Marley’s vision for an inclusive and compassionate community where people take care of each other and the environment,” they explain.
They have created a partnership with the MCBA. The Rise Up ™ Expungement Program will help men and women who have been convicted of cannabis offenses by filing motions to set aside felony and non-felony arrest or conviction charges that qualify for expungement.
“In Oregon, Marley Natural® has partnered with the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA), the first non-profit organization created specifically to progress the cannabis industry by increasing diversity,” the statement said. “Our intent is to continue to invest in projects helping entrepreneurial people strive toward a better future in Jamaica and elsewhere around the world as our company grows.”
