Willie’s Reserve Celebrates Willie Nelson’s Birthday
Limited Edition Willie’s Reserve T-Shirts To Be Released
Proceeds Going To The Realm Of Caring
Willie’s Reserve wishes a very happy birthday to founder Willie Nelson.
When his family asked what he’d like for his birthday this week, he answered “for the fed bill to pass to help all the families!” in reference to the bi-partisan Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act introduced in Senate in March, and the companion bill introduced in the House.
The act would allow states to legalize marijuana for medical use without federal interference, and allow Veterans Administration physicians to recommend medical marijuana to veterans, among other important benefits.
In honor of the occasion, son Micah Nelson created commemorative artwork to be featured on limited edition Willie’s Reserve T-shirts, for sale at the willienelson.com store. Proceeds will benefit The Realm of Caring, an organization devoted to research and support for medicinal marijuana.

Willie’s birthday celebration rolls on for two days this week. Born near midnight on Apr. 29, he celebrated on that date throughout his childhood. When he joined the Air Force and received his birth certificate, the date was listed as Apr. 30. But his sister Bobbie Nelson and other family members are positive that he was born on the 29th. Today, Willie and family honor his birthday on Apr. 29th, with no regrets when the celebration spills over into the 30th.

The Realm of Caring Foundation was informally established by the Stanley Brothers whose cannabidiol (CBD) project became known as the Charlotte’s Web™ breeding project after meeting the Figi family in early 2012, and discovering 5-year-old Charlotte Figi’s dramatic success in her battle with epilepsy. After receiving several inquiries from families seeking help around the world, the group recognized the need to create a formal organization to not only collect research and data on individuals using cannabis products; but also to educate and advocate about this often misunderstood form of therapy.
