Update 3/15 – The MariSave Marketplace coming Spring 2015



MariSave has worked hard , in addition to bringing you regular discounts on hundreds of products from dozens of Cannabis Industry Product Leaders, we have teamed up with several of these same companies to be able to bring you an ecommerce outlet to bring the savings continuously instead of just one time with a coupon.

The MariSave Marketplace is currently scheduled to open as soon as we can near the Spring of 2015. We look forward to MariSave offering some great deals and opportunities for the Marijuana Industry as a whole, straight from MariSave itself, no more running from website to website.

If you are a vendor or manufacturer that would be interested in working out some exclusive opportunities with and The THC Group, please contact us to see what we can work out.

*** UPDATE :   3/15 – Due to some unforseen logistical problems with some private investors and private financing options, we are postponing the Grand Opening of the MariSave Marketplace until late summer or early Fall at the latest. More Details to follow.

The family of the late Jamaican reggae artist, Bob Marley has launched what they describe as the world’s first global cannabis brand.

It will be called Marley Natural and be used to sell cannabis-infused lotions, creams and various accessories.

The new brand is being developed with Privateer Holdings based in Washington state, stressing the life and legacy of Jamaica’s greatest cultural export.

It is intended to be sold in the US and possibly worldwide from next year.

Bob Marley’s daughter, Cedella Marley, said her father would welcome the move.

“My dad would be so happy to see people understanding the healing power of the herb,” she said.

Privateer’s chief executive Brendan Kennedy said a Marley was “someone who, in many ways, helped start the movement to end cannabis prohibition 50 years ago.

“It was just a natural fit between Bob Marley and this product. You know if you were to look for the most famous human being who ever walked the face of the earth related to cannabis, it would be Bob Marley.”

Bob Marley died of cancer in May 1981. He embraced cannabis as a key part of his Rastafarian faith and supported its legalization.

Cannabis use for recreational purposes is legal in the US states of Colorado and Washington.

Several other states may follow suit and others are permitting the sale of marijuana for prescribed medical purposes.
