Happy Birthday, Bob Marley! Five Awesome Products to Celebrate With
Robert Nesta Marley, mellow mood maker, our duppy conqueror, bringer of positive vibrations, would've been 61 today. And since he's passed away after giving us the gift of his beautiful music, you can celebrate by blasting Kaya on repeat. Then you can go shopping for yourself and buy these Bob Marley-related products after the jump. 1. The Bag of Rhythm
This $349.99 portable sound system from the House of Marley is dual battery powered, charges iPods and iPhones, and is incredibly cool looking. Plus, the House of Marley donates 5 percent of annual profits to 1Love.org, a global non-profit organization created by the Marley family to aid charitable causes focused on "Youth, Planet and Peace." Only thing is, shouldn't it be called the Bag of Riddim?!
2. Marley's Mellow Mood Relaxation Beverages
The site says these 100 percent natural relaxation beverages were created with the blessing of the "legendary musical prophet, Bob Marley." It's designed to reduce stress and relieve tension, while calming the soul and easing the mind; the 12-ounce can has only 115 calories!
Sure, it's a no brainer
They burn nice, have a good price ($21.49 for 25 packs on Amazon) and have Bob Marley's face emblazoned on all of them. What more could you ask for?
4. Marley Coffee
Marley Coffee is run by Bob Marley's son Rohan, whose grandmother dried her wild coffee berries in the sun, then hulled and roasted them for her own cup of coffee each morning. Its tagline? "Stir It Up," what else?
5. Bob Marley Sativa Marijuana
According to Amsterdam Marijuana Seedbank, which sells the Bob Marley sativa marijuana seeds for 35 Euro, "The Bob Marley sativa is a very tall marijuana plant with a big center cola [top bud] and a lot of leggy marijuana branches covered with small but very potent marijuana buds...The smell and taste of the Bob Marley sativa seeds strain is exotic and sweet with a touch of spiciness to it. The smoke is relatively smooth. The high is an original sativa very cerebral uplifting and energetic high."
