Cannabis lovers in Washington, Colorado, Oregon and Nevada have already had the chance to try Willie’s Reserve, a brand of cannabis from music legend and longtime marijuana activist Willie Nelson. Now, Californians will get the opportunity to buy Willie’s weed.
Flow Kana, a top sun-grown cannabis company that embraces the small farmer ecosystem, was selected as the Willie’s Reserve partner in California. Cannabis enthusiasts in the Golden State can now purchase Willie’s Reserve Legendary Stash of packaged flower and signature Ready Roll pre-rolled joints from Flow Kana’s network of independent heritage farms in Humboldt and Mendocino Counties.
Nelson has for decades served as the face of responsible marijuana use. He has also been a champion of the small farmer.
“California has a progressive way of thinking and they’ve decided that cannabis is a positive plant to have in the land which is what I’ve always believed,” Nelson said. “And I know we’ve come pretty damn far. From the point where they’d put you in prison for life for a seed to where we are now, which is a lot of progress.”

The strains are hand selected, Willie-tested, and will be the first craft cannabis strains offered by Willie’s Reserve to be available in California. Each strain is cultivated on independent farms in small batches, using only organic inputs, and under full sun in California’s premier cannabis growing regions of Northern California.
“California has a unique gift of thousands of small cannabis farms that have been cultivating for generations and Flow Kana is focused on bringing their sustainable, sun-grown cannabis to market,” said Michael Steinmetz, Flow Kana CEO and co-founder. “It is an honor to partner and power the Willie’s Reserve and other brands that share the value of building a better and more sustainable cannabis industry.”
Beginning this month, Willie’s Reserve is available at these select retailers in California: Medithrive in San Francisco, 7 Stars Holistic Healing Center in Richmond, Ojai Greens in Ojai, Desert Organic Solutions Collective in Palm Springs, Torrey Holistics in San Diego, Green Goddess Collective in Venice Beach, Little Trees in Arnold, Airfield Supply Co. in San Jose, and Big Sur Canna+Botancials in Carmel-By-The-Sea.
