Sorry folks, but this is most likely a scam. Willie's Remedy is Willie Nelson's official and only CBD brand. At this time, we do not offer a gummy. There are other people using Willie Nelson's name and image to promote other CBD products, including gummies. We've heard many of these people never receive their order. Willie Nelson's official product line includes: CBD-Rich Coffee, CBD-Rich Tea, CBD-Rich Balm and CBD-Rich Tinctures.
Our coffees typically test with undetectable amounts of THC (less than 0.01% by weight) and the tests on brewed coffee have been negative for detectable THC. However, since the extract itself does contain trace amounts of THC, we cannot legally guarantee that consuming significant amounts will not cause anyone to fail a drug test.
Although both are Cannabis sativa plants, each has different uses and cannabinoid profiles. Marijuana is typically bred and grown for the perceived psychoactive and medicinal effects of THC. Industrial hemp has long been bred for its fiber and oils for application in the construction, textile and health-food industries. Hemp also contains a much different cannabinoid profile from a typical marijuana plant. The psychoactive cannabinoid, THC, is only found in trace amounts, with relatively greater concentrations of other cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, and CBD. This makes hemp an ideal source of non-psychoactive, full-spectrum, cannabinoid extracts. Our infused coffee is also lab tested to be well below 0.1% THC, ensuring compliance with both Colorado and federal regulations.
Compared to hemp extract, hemp seed oil found in the health food section of grocery stores like Whole Foods is processed from different parts of the hemp plant using different extraction methods. Hemp seed oil is made by cold pressing the cleaned hemp seeds. This resulting oil is very rich in healthy, fatty acids, and many find it a great alternative to traditional oils on the market.
Hemp extract uses all the plant matter available. The most common CO2 extraction method is called supercritical extraction. This method heats and pressurizes CO2 to a state where it behaves as both a liquid and a gas. In this state it acts as a stable and environmentally safe solvent to then extract the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant.
Discovered in 1992, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the most under researched by comparison to our central, peripheral nervous and circulatory systems. The ECS plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis, a relatively stable equilibrium status, in the human body. Some researchers call it the ‘master regulator’ as it has a very wide scope of influence due to the abundance of cannabinoid receptors located anywhere from immune cells to neurons.”
There are three types of cannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hundreds of natural compounds exist in Cannabis sativa, and at least 80 of these are classified as cannabinoids (both of these numbers are continuing to grow).
Endocannabinoids are compounds our bodies naturally produce to interact with the endocannabinoid system. Lastly, synthetic cannabinoids have been developed for medical use. Terpenes are the aromatic hydrocarbons that give Cannabis sativa its wide spectrum of smells and tastes depending on the terpene ratios present in the strain.
The most well-known and researched cannabinoids are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), and CBD (cannabidiol).
When phytocannabinoids and terpenes interact with the endocannabinoid system, the resulting perceived effects depend on the quantity and ratio of the introduced compounds.
No. Willie’s Remedy is Willie Nelson’s official hemp extract brand, and Willie’s Reserve is his official marijuana brand.
No. The Internet is full of “fun facts” about Willie, weed, CBD and hemp, but the truth is, cannabis is Willie’s favorite plant. He enjoys all aspects of it and credits it to allowing him to do the things he loves—including music—and is a long-time outspoken advocate for its benefits.
