Willie Nelson and his family and team are legally growing marijuana for the first time in the country singer and legalization activist’s lifetime.
The owners of one of Denver’s oldest marijuana businesses have sold their pot cultivation and infused products licenses to a group representing the country music legend and his new cannabis brand Willie’s Reserve, The Cannabist has learned exclusively.
Denver Relief sold its licenses for growing marijuana and infusing products with cannabis for an undisclosed sum to CMH Brands, a licensee and processor of Willie’s Reserve, according to individuals close to the deal.
“It feels good because there are so many shared values between the two organizations,” Denver Relief co-owner Ean Seeb told The Cannabist. “Although the ownership is passing along, the mission and the vision of what we were trying to accomplish within Denver Relief is synonymous with what CMH Brands and Willie Nelson are attempting to accomplish.”
