"It never dawned on me that Coral Reefer would be anything other than a cool name for a tropical band born out of the Key West lifestyle in the mid-70s," singer, songwriter and best-selling author, Jimmy Buffett said. "But life is supposed to be about having fun and staying healthy enough to enjoy it. I think Coral Reefer will help a lot of folks do that."
Later this year, the Coral Reefer brand plans to extend its product line to include edibles, topicals, pre-rolls, and CBD only formulas, inspired by tropical summer days. The expanded product selection will provide alternative ways to access the beneficial effects of cannabis, offering even more ways to unwind, relax and de-stress.
At launch, Coral Reefer will offer a selection of cannabis-based product formulas available in both disposable and reusable battery vaporizer formats and branded merchandise, including hats and t-shirts. The uniquely designed vape pen called the TideRider ™ embodies the spirit of the brand with a sleek surfboard design, variable temperature controls and advanced ceramic coil technology for a clean and consistent vaping experience. All branded products feature the new signature Coral Reefer logo, a distinctive tropical design and Key West -inspired colors.

For finding cannabis people, the internet is amazing — a lot of the cities we visited have local hash tags or Facebook groups to organize meet ups. The #australiancannabiscommunity hashtag is a popular one for the country as a whole and can be a good place to start.
Cannabis law is hard to explain for the whole country. Australia is made up of six states and 10 territories — each one is going to regulate it different. The Queensland government is a little more conservative with cannabis. New South Wales is the most cannabis friendly of the Australian states.
We hotboxed one of the landmarks in Brisbane — their big ferris wheel-type ride overlooking the whole city in your own pod. It felt like a good opportunity to bust out the pens because I don’t think Australia is up to date with the vape pens for tobacco versus cannabis.

Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, attend massive festivals, partake in local sativas and watch out for koalas, which are more rare than you would think, says cannabis vlogger Coral Reefer. Coral — who’s racked up millions of views online with her personality-driven “Stoney Sunday” and “NewsNug” segments — shares some travel tips after her third annual adventure to Australia. We had her send us some beloved Reefer Mail featuring tips for visiting Down Under.
For Australian cannabis, the story attached to the genetics was really strong. We ran into quite a few people that had seeds their family gave them. One guy’s seeds were from his father that had passed away.
Australian cannabis is potent just looking at it. The genetics seem good, but it’s really humid in a good part of the country and lot of people struggle to dry their cannabis properly.
Year-round, Nimbin has a reputation for being a cannabis-positive place, but also a small town. Nimbin is overflowing with people for MardiGrass weekend, which takes place during the first weekend of May.

Reefer madness is taking over the entertainment industry, and the latest high-profile name within the music biz to dive into the booming world of cannabis is none other than Mr. Margarita himself, Jimmy Buffett. Announced late last month, the rock singer/guitarist and business mogul will launch his own line of cannabis products, fittingly titled, Coral Reefer.
Buffett was in New Orleans recently, where he performed for fans from around the country who were in town to celebrate this year’s Jazz Fest. Fans can catch Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers on tour throughout the summer. Tickets and info for his 2019 performance schedule can be found here. Fans can also head to the Coral Reefer website for more info on his latest business venture.
“It never dawned on me that Coral Reefer would be anything other than a cool name for a tropical band born out of the Key West lifestyle in the mid-70s,” Buffett said in a statement to go with the April announcement. “But life is supposed to be about having fun and staying healthy enough to enjoy it. I think Coral Reefer will help a lot of folks do that.”
The new line of cannabis products, which is branded in relation to Buffett’s backing band by the same name, will see the “Margaritaville” singer partnering with Surterra Wellness to reach a new generation of music fans who are embracing a much greener lifestyle as the plant sees gradual legalization across the country. Coral Reefer will offer multiple wellness-focused cannabis products for consumers to use, ranging from oils to vape pens, pods, and cartridges.
