DENVER (CBS)Willie Nelson needs some good help when it comes to getting his marijuana business up and running in Colorado.

He is now accepting applications for Willie’s Reserve, or what he calls his “premium cannabis lifestyle brand” which will feature his own strain of pot.

The website for Willie’s Reserve says there will be a full product launch this summer. It includes flower, preroll, vape and edibles.

The site says it will offer cannabis products of the best quality, consistency and flavor while supporting local small farmers throughout Colorado.

Nelson isn’t on his own when it comes to funding the company. He’s already scored some major investments from companies like New York-based private equity firm, Tuatara Capital.

The country music legend has spent years talking about legalizing marijuana. When asked earlier this year why he would attach his name to a marijuana company, he said simply it was to prove a point.

“Willie’s Reserve” is looking for five employees in Colorado: a compliance officer, bookkeeper-administrator, production manager, sales director and extractor.

You must be a Colorado state resident and either hold or be qualified to hold a Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) badge.
