Bob Marley's family have launched what they are calling the world's first global cannabis brand.

The line is called Marley Natural after the late Jamaican reggae star, and will also sell marijuana-infused lotions, creams and various accessories.

US private equity firm Privateer Holdings has joined the family to develop the brand. They said on their website that the line would be "based on Bob's life and legacy".

The late singer's daughter Cedella Marley said in a company statement: "My dad would be so happy to see people understanding the healing power of the herb."

Rastafarian Marley, whose hits included I Shot The Sheriff and No Woman, No Cry, died of skin cancer in 1981.
