The Marley family have launched the new Marley Natural Herb House. The launch coincided with the launch of the Marley One global mushroom brand. The event took place at the reggae legend’s former home at 56 Hope Road, now known as the Bob Marley Museum. Now, the space will also host the new flagship Marley Natural Dispensary and smoking lounge.

The launch took place on Tuesday, March 28th from 6pm-10pm and was attended by a mix of Marley family members, ministers, CEOs, musicians, and influencers in Jamaica. The highlight of the event was an intimate acoustic performance by Stephen Marley on the deck of the Herb house, where Marley Natural is expected to begin hosting a new musical series, ‘Live at Bob’s.’

“I think my father would be pleased to see that a Herb house is opening at the Bob Marley Museum.  When I think of how far the world has progressed surrounding its attitudes toward cannabis and to finally recognize its many positive qualities – this is exactly what my father and the Rastafarian Community have been saying for over 40 years. He has done so much to foster a positive understanding, it’s just right that we do this for him and his legacy,” said Stephen Marley.

Marley Natural, the world’s first global cannabis brand was born out of a collaboration between the Marley family, Docklight Brands, Inc., and Marley One. The first global functional and psychedelic mushroom brand is a joint venture with Silo Wellness.

“This is a significant milestone for our company as we will introduce the world to Marley One functional mushrooms, psychedelics products and wellness retreats.  The brand offers top quality products in these fast-growing categories, instant name recognition and global visibility honoring Bob Marley’s legacy and connection to nature and plant-based wellbeing,” said NM Wellness CEO Douglas K. Gordon. “We are committed to building a leading global functional and psychedelic mushroom brand, guided by our vision to help people achieve healthier, more fulfilling lives and become the best versions of themselves.”

Cedella Marley, CEO of Bob Marley Group of Companies said, “As a family, we seek to use our platform to inspire positive change, and the launch of the Marley Natural and Marley One brand allows us to do just that. It’s our wish that these products will empower people to experience oneness with nature and the universe at large – and ultimately, achieve greater self-actualization.”

The newly constructed Marley Natural Herb House has been approved by Jamaica’s Cannabis Licensing Authority, which permits both locals and tourists to consume cannabis for medical and therapeutic purposes. The outlet exclusively offers Marley Natural cannabis grown locally in St. Ann, Jamaica, the parish where Bob Marley was born. Its opening allows qualified consumers to enjoy authentic cannabis in eighths, pre-rolls, and vape cartridges inside the historic space. In addition to cannabis, the retail location will sell a full line of Marley Natural accessories including grinders, cases, holders, trays, bubblers, and other Marley branded products including Marley One.

Future locations are planned at Tuff Gong Studio in Kingston and elsewhere on the island.

Stephen Marley, the acclaimed 8x GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer, announces the release of a new remix of his single “Old Soul,” the title track of his latest critically- acclaimed album by DJ Delano of Renaissance Disco titled (DJ Delano Renaissance Santa Barbara Mix).


The remix also features a sample of the classic ‘Santa Barbara’ riddim created by the legendary Grammy Award-winning Jamaican drummer, Sly Dunbar (Sly & Robbie).

The new “Old Soul” remix release coincides with the resumption of the second leg pf Stephen’s Old Soul Tour (Unplugged) dates starting this Saturday, May 25th at the Cali Roots Festival in Monterey, California with his brother Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.  Both the remix and tour are a continuation of Stephen Marley’s support of his landmark album Old Soul that was released last fall. 


“I was invited to play at Stephen Marley’s daughter’s wedding reception and wanted to play ‘Old Soul,’ my favorite song from the album, while people were dancing.  I decided to drop a riddim on the spot to create a remix doing it live.  They loved the mix and vibe from ‘the remix king” and this how the remix came about.” shared DJ Delano of Renaissance Disco.

Approx. 3 min read

Organisers, Tropix Entertainment, Java Nation and Johnny Q Limited, have made a major commitment to presenting the people of T&T with an elevated level of entertainment, the likes of which will see Steel Pulse, Collie Buddz, Christopher Martin, SuperCat, Jamelody and Mr. King, hit the stage, alongside Kalonji. 

SuperCat is ready to deliver.

This year’s concert follows a 2023 show, which was headlined by Buju Banton. “Reggae music is powerful and resolute in its affirmations of positivity,” said Java Nation’s Ian Pantin. The team’s unwavering effort to bring Trinidad and Tobago back to a place of peace, comes from a place of personal compassion for country. “There is no denying the fact that society’s moral compass has shifted somewhat and we see this in the news headlines daily. As partners in the entertainment business, we believe it is our social responsibility to direct our people onto a more positive path,” said Pantin. 

Each year, the tone for the show is depicted in the artistes chosen. Over the years, Tarrus Riley, Anthony B, Jah Cure, Sanchez, Luciano, Glen Washington, Beres Hammond, Morgan Heritage and countless others, have brought a variation of sweet reggae music. It is anticipated that this year, the addition of Super Cat will add some momentum – the artiste well known for hit dancehall tracks like, ‘Dolly My Baby’, ‘GirlsTown,’ ‘Cry Fuh De Youth,’ ‘My Girl Josephine’ and many others.

Patrons, confident in the Redemption brand, have already expressed excitement for ‘The Way Forward,’ indicating their loyal support for the concert that has certainly stood the test of time. “We are truly pleased and humbled by the support shown to Redemption over the years- by both patrons and sponsors who we consider partners. Executing a show of this magnitude annually, is no easy or simple feat. We work dedicatedly behind the scenes, trying our best to accommodate every partner, while presenting live entertainment that is purposeful and enjoyable. It’s never easy,” said Pantin. 

Together with the team, Pantin says each year, patrons’ views are taken into consideration and efforts made to return one year later, with a show that is better than previously experienced. This year, one lucky patron will be the winner of a signature, gold and ruby encrusted, Redemption pendant, worth approximately $20,000TTD. 

Christopher Martin will be there.
