Long-time Advocates of Quality, Small-Batch Cannabis Choose CMH Brands to Continue Mission
Denver, Colo. Aug 4, 2016 – Denver Relief, Colorado’s original medical and recreational cannabis operation dedicated to responsible growing practices, announced today the sale of their licensed Optional Premises Cultivation (OPC) and Manufacturer of Infused Products (MIP) facilities to CMH Brands, a Colorado licensee and processor of Willie’s Reserve. Willie’s Reserve is the much-anticipated premium cannabis brand by award-winning musician, actor, author and longtime marijuana advocate, Willie Nelson. Denver Relief, founded in 2009, is the longest-established cannabis business in the city and is a main cog in kick starting the modern marijuana movement. It has pioneered many firsts, including garnering approval for the first cannabis infused kitchen in Denver and creating one of the first community-focused philanthropic collectives for the cannabis industry in the country, the GREEN TEAM.
When looking for potential suitors, it was imperative for Denver Relief to find a company that would advocate for growing high-quality, responsible cannabis. Denver Relief specifically chose CMH Brands because of their connection with Willie’s Reserve and their dedication to growing and supporting high quality cannabis on independent, local farms.
“Just as we all anticipated, the cannabis industry has diversified to provide products of varying quality. It was important that we find successors who represent the authenticity and trust we’ve worked very hard to gain,” said Ean Seeb, Denver Relief. “CMH Brands’ venture with Willie’s Reserve is evidence of our common interests.”
Nelson, the nation’s most renowned aficionado, consulted with horticulturalists and cannabis farmers to assure any product labeled Willie’s Reserve will maintain a standard worthy of his name.
“When it comes to cannabis, it’s still a maturing industry,” said Andy Sackmann, CMH Brands. “We are lucky to have found business partners who share our passion for growing high quality cannabis in a responsible way.”
Through CMH Brand’s careful practices, Willie’s Reserve will continue to support Nelson’s goals and celebrate his legacy by constantly seeking innovative ways to develop and curate the brand, while seeking an end to cannabis prohibition in America.
Willie’s Reserve signature Ready Rolls and high quality flower will be available at select purveyors in Colorado, Washington and future legal states for connoisseurs who appreciate the best. Colorado shops will include Lucy Sky, Simply Pure, Mindful, and Terrapin Care Station and will be available August 8, 2016
