SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Marley family and Docklight Brands announced today that the Marley Natural® cannabis portfolio will be launched in Jamaica through a new, first-of-its-kind Marley Natural dispensary located at Bob’s former home and recording studio, now the Bob Marley Museum, in Kingston, Jamaica. Marley Natural, the world’s first global cannabis brand, was born of a collaboration between the Marley family and Docklight Brands, Inc., which holds exclusive global rights to Bob Marley cannabinoid products.
“Along with music, herb was such an important part of my father’s life. He was always a strong advocate for marijuana and all of its healing qualities. We are thrilled to honor him and his contribution to the world of music and now cannabis at the Bob Marley Museum,” said Stephen Marley.
“We are thrilled to work with the Marley family to bring the Marley Natural portfolio to Jamaica through this flagship retail location. This unique cannabis experience will bring to life the ethos of Bob Marley,” said Damian Marano, CEO, Docklight Brands. “It is incredibly meaningful to have the first Marley Natural dispensary in the world at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica.”
The site has already received conditional approval from Jamaica’s Cannabis Licensing Authority. The opening of the dispensary will allow qualified consumers to enjoy authentic cannabis at Bob’s house. Jamaican law allows both residents and tourists to use cannabis for therapeutic purposes. In addition to cannabis, the retail location will sell a full line of Marley accessories and approved CBD products.
One Draw Holdings plans to open this inaugural Marley Natural retail location at the Bob Marley Museum later in 2021, with future locations planned at Tuff Gong Studio in Kingston and elsewhere on the island. This dispensary will be the first in Docklight’s global expansion of the Marley Natural retail footprint, with additional locations planned in North America.
