Julian Marley, British musician, entrepreneur, and son of Jamaican reggae icon Bob Marley, has earned an award for the cannabis-infused olive oils launched by his brand, JuJu Royal.
JuJu Royal’s cannabis olive oils took home 1st place in the 4th Annual Best of Edibles List Award in two categories: Best Colorado Edible and Best Olive Oil. According to the company, its olive oils are created from a unique blend of THC-free CBD oil and extra virgin olive oil. Each two-tablespoon serving provides 30 milligrams of full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD. The ingredient is said to help relieve pain and reduce anxiety, among other health benefits.
Julian Marley’s brand is committed to quality in every ingredient; the pesticide-free, non-GMO olives are grown in Arizona, where they are harvested and sent to be processed within 24 hours of being picked. The facility does not use any chemicals or industrial refining processes. JuJu Royal recommends its olive oil for drizzling over tomatoes, sauteing vegetables, or pairing with artisan bread and pasta.
Founding JuJu Royal was important because of “my spiritual faith in Rastafari and the connection with the plant. I only see it fit to partake in this business because it is part of my life.” Thanks to @entmagazine for this story!

The award was announced by International Cannabrands Inc., an organization that aims to advance the usage of cannabis in the wellness industry. “I am truly excited that the JuJu team has won this award. JuJu Royal stands for innovative products that fit with our consumers’ lifestyle and this award recognizes the hard work and artistry that went into this effort,” said Travis Belcher, president of JuJu Royal.
While Julian Marley and his brand advocate for the total legalization of recreational and medicinal cannabis, all JuJu Royal products contain less than 0.3 percent of the psychoactive ingredient THC, making them legal across all 50 states.
CBD isn’t just popping up in vegan edibles – it’s also becoming a popular ingredient in cosmetics. This summer, vegan beauty brand Milk Makeup launched CBD-infused brow gel and mascara. Last January, Forbes identified cannabis as having the potential to become one of the most lucrative ingredients in the skincare industry.
