Willie's Reserve is a premium line of cannabis products and a lifestyle brand that celebrates award-winning musician, actor, author, and advocate Willie Nelson and his love of cannabis and its culture.

Willie's Reserve, a GCH brand, has engaged Jerrick Media to serve as a digital strategist for the company, developing effective platforms to support the many voices in the national conversation around cannabis and cannabis culture.
"I think that people are learning about cannabis, about it being a medicine and helpful to a lot people," says Nelson. "It is also good for our environment and small farmers, and legalization can help bring social justice. It's important to get the word out on all the benefits of cannabis."
Jerrick Media's fast growing cannabis vertical, Potent, will premiere Marijuana Minute, sponsored by Willie's Reserve. Hosted by Canadian personality Michael Eckford and produced by Mary Zilba and Fiona Forbes of LadyPants Productions, Marijuana Minute is a smart, irreverent new web series covering everything you need to know about the fastest growing industry in America. Created to enable, educate, and introduce viewers to the broad introductory conversation of cannabis culture, Marijuana Minute encourages viewers to learn and share questions, answers, and resources that support normalization, and importantly, create an informed audience. Marijuana Minute follows Potent's first popular series, Baked: Cooking with Mary Jean. Marijuana Minute is to premiere later this year.
Jerrick Media CEO Jeremy Frommer said, "Willie's Reserve is one of the most authentic cannabis brands available in today's market. The cannabis industry – at this early stage of development – must rely on its message and public support if it is to take its rightful place in history. There is no one better suited than Willie Nelson to represent that message. Jerrick is excited to be a part of that process."

About Willie Nelson
With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of Crazy, Red Headed Stranger, and Stardust. Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In the last five years alone he delivered 10 new album releases, released a Top 10 New York Times' bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul, headlined the last three years of the on-going Luck Reunion food and music festival at his ranch in Luck, TX during SXSW, announced the launch of his cannabis company Willie's Reserve, and graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. In 2015, Nelson added "It's A Long Story: My Life," the unvarnished and complete story of Willie, hit bookshelves and landed him on the New York Times' bestsellers list; and the new studio album with Merle Haggard titled Django And Jimmie, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Country album chart and #7 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart. In November 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award. And this year began with the release of Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin, a collection of 11 newly recorded Gershwin classics. The album debuted at #1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart. In September, came For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price, an album of newly recorded interpretations of 12 Ray Price songs. While in October, Nelson released Pretty Paper, his new novel inspired his classic holiday song of the same title about a legless man who sold wrapping paper in front of a Ft. Worth, TX department store. Nelson continues to record new songs for upcoming projects as well as touring throughout North America year long.
