Willie Nelson’s Hemp-Derived CBD Brand Launches New Wildflowers Tea as a Tribute to Tom Petty’s Legacy, With Proceeds Benefiting MusiCares®
DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Willie’s Remedy, a hemp-based wellness line inspired by pioneering musician and activist Willie Nelson and his wife, Annie Nelson, today announced its first-ever collaboration with Tom Petty’s estate to launch a limited edition Wildflowers Tea. The families of the legendary artists founded the partnership as a homage to Petty’s life, American music and the health benefits and merits of CBD.
“Hemp offers a comforting way to expand on a natural wellness routine,” said Annie Nelson, Co-Founder of Willie’s Remedy. “Wildflowers Tea is an example of the connections that are possible when we share the culture of cannabis and music.”
Proceeds from every sale of Wildflowers Tea will be donated to MusiCares®, a charity that provides people working in the music industry with a support system of health and human services, of which Tom Petty was named the MusiCares® Person of the Year in 2017.
“My father was a believer in the mission of MusiCares,” said Adria Petty. “It’s a dream come true to have our two families who share so much mutual admiration in both generations of listeners and fans to collaborate together.”
Wildflowers Tea is a botanical blend of whole chamomile flowers, lemon myrtle flowers and peppermint leaves—known for its digestive benefits. Available in biodegradable pyramid bags and loose leaf, the tea is infused with full-spectrum hemp extract from small-to-midsize independent U.S. farms.
