"We are fortunate to be living during a promising time of positive change, especially with regard to cannabis. We believe our father would be so happy to see more people understanding the unique properties of the plant,” said Cedella Marley, Bob’s daughter.
Rise Up™: Marley Natural Gives Back to Washington
In the spirit of giving back to both Jamaica and communities that have been harmed by cannabis prohibition, Marley Natural has created a social impact initiative called Rise Up. Rise Up funds a series of carefully curated projects that reflect Bob’s vision for an inclusive and compassionate community where people take care of each other and the environment. More details about Rise Up are available at www.MarleyNatural.com/RiseUp.
In Washington, Marley Natural is joining forces with the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA), the first non-profit organization created specifically to progress the cannabis industry by increasing diversity, and the Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP), a non-profit composed of police and other criminal justice professionals dedicated to implementing drug policy and criminal justice solutions that improve public safety, to host Rise Up programs in Seattle.
In partnership with MCBA, Marley Natural will host a Rise Up event to help men and women convicted of non-violent cannabis offenses file to vacate felony judgments and be released from associated penalties. Applicants will be pre-screened for eligibility by the event’s legal team (organized by Marley Natural) and work with volunteers on the day of the event to complete their application. Alongside that event, LEAP will host a Know Your Rights class to educate the community about local cannabis rights and the MCBA will host a responsible consumption workshop.

About Marley Natural Products
Cannabis Flower and Oil
Marley Natural cannabis flower and oil are hand-selected from local farms run by experienced growers committed to sustainable growing practices. All Marley Natural products are tested and clearly labeled for potency, purity, and safety prior to sale. Marley Natural cannabis flower and oil are available in four categories, each featuring different strains depending on harvest availability:
- Marley Green features hybrid strains recommended for people beginning their journey with Marley Natural. Marley Green strains have balanced levels of THC that combine the cerebral high of sativa with the physical relaxation of indica. Marley Green strains are appropriate for anytime use.
- Marley Gold features sativa strains that offer energetic, uplifting effects that may produce a more cerebral experience compared to other cannabis strains. Marley Gold strains are appropriate for daytime use.
- 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 Red strains are appropriate for anytime use.
- Marley Black features indica strains recommended for connoisseurs seeking a more physical, full-body experience. Marley Black strains are high in THC and appropriate for nighttime use.
Naturally-Derived Cannabis Sativa Body Care Infused with Jamaican Botanicals
The Marley Natural body care line offers naturally-derived formulas that blend the moisturizing power of hemp seed oil with Jamaican botanicals (including ginger, lemongrass, turmeric, and cerasse). All formulas contain cold-pressed hemp seed oil rich in essential fatty acids, Omega-3s, and Omega-6s. All formulas are paraben, sulfate, and cruelty free. Body care products are available for sale nationally via www.MarleyNaturalShop.com. The hemp seed body care products include an essential oil blend, body lotion, body wash, body salve, hand cream, bar soap, and a lip balm.
Sustainably Sourced American Black Walnut Smoking Accessories
Balancing intuitive design with Jamaican-inspired accents, Marley Natural’s smoking accessories cater to discerning herb connoisseurs who celebrate the ritual of smoking. The collection features products made from sustainably sourced American Black Walnut wood and heat-resistant, hand-blown glass, all boxed in 100% recyclable packaging. Each product is designed to ensure durability, convenient maintenance, and a comfortable hand-feel. The accessories are designed to be used only with legal smoking herbs and are not intended to be used with tobacco products. The collection is available for sale nationwide at specialty retailers, as well as online at www.MarleyNaturalShop.com.
