The short answer is, Willie’s Remedy will not get you high!
Willie’s Remedy products are made using full-spectrum, whole-plant hemp extract. While hemp has naturally occurring trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis that gets you high, there isn't nearly enough to experience the inebriation associated with getting high.
To be compliant with the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill) which allows for the growth, cultivation and marketing of industrial hemp legally in the United States, we use hemp grown in accordance with the Colorado Department of Agriculture, which stipulates that the hemp itself may not contain more than 0.3% THC by dry weight, nor may the extract contain more than 0.3% THC by weight.
With our coffee, for example, there are 24 MG of full-spectrum hemp per serving (2 rounded tablespoons per serving for an 8-oz cup of coffee). Within that, there are approximately 16 MG of CBD specifically per serving. Unlike an isolate where exact, isolated units of each cannabinoid are added to a product, full-spectrum hemp is full of cannabinoids, including CBD. These work together for what is known as the entourage effect. This is also why the milligram amount is approximate for CBD. Natural has variations. If a product has an exact amount of CBD, it is most likely an isolate.
This is due to rounding. For example, with our hemp-infused coffee, there are 16mg of CBD per serving and 16 servings (approximately) per bag equals 256. We rounded down to 250 because servings are approximate, plus it depends on how precise you measure. And who doesn’t like a round number?
Yes. Our sourced extract is independently tested, and our products are independently tested for accurate cannabinoid potency after infusion. Willie’s Remedy products fall well within Colorado and federal regulations regarding THC content and concentration.
While Willie Nelson is well known for rolling his own, through his efforts as the founder of Farm Aid, he’s just as well known for helping American farmers. One of the best ways to do that is to support them by buying their crops, rather than creating more competition for them.
We source our coffees from two separate co-ops that combine old coffee traditions and new mission-based initiatives. Our Colombian coffee comes from the Colombia Risaralda Co-Op, an early co-op leader supporting and elevating their communities since 1959. Our Nicaraguan coffee comes from the SOPPEXCCA Co-Op, a fair-trade certified with a high female membership and a goal to create even more opportunities for women, their families and their communities. Learn more about our co-ops.
We are not certified organic, but many of our ingredients are certified organic or our farmers are using organic growing practices, including not using GMOs, pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
