The family’s Marley One brand will launch a line of psychedelic mushroom products later this year in legal markets, such as Jamaica, in partnership with Silo Wellness.
Marley One will first launch non-psychoactive mushroom wellness products. The non-trippy products are made with “functional mushrooms” — as opposed to the psychedelic ones — which have already been a trend in the wellness space.
The move comes on the heels of a cannabis craze that has had celebs including Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Willie Nelson and Seth Rogen launching their own lines.
This month, a Peter Thiel-backed psychedelic start-up began trading on Wall Street. Mike Tyson, who’s also become a cannabis entrepreneur, recently said that after taking psilocybin — aka “magic mushrooms” — “my whole life changed.”
The Marley One mushroom products will also include gummies, capsules and cosmetics. Marley’s widow, Rita Marley, said in a statement: “We know Bob would be proud of what we’re building. Our family has always revered the ancient history and transformative potential of nature’s gifts.”
