MEGHAN Markle’s nephew Tyler Dooley is launching cannabis-derivative products across the UK in a £20million operation.
The 26-year-old is starting up the ‘Royally Grown’ brand next month, which will be selling cannabinoids, also known as CBD, to help alleviate medical conditions and improve people’s health.
Tyler, whose dad Thomas Jr is Meghan’s half-brother
his multi-million dollar commercial operation in Oregon, will soon be going global and “most definitely the UK”.
CBD is legal in this country and can can be freely distributed as long as it’s under 0.2 per cent THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient of the cannabis plant and gives the sensation of getting high.
Speaking from his home in Medford, Oregon, Tyler said: “The CBD industry is absolutely booming, it’s the hottest commodity in the world.
“I have amazing products to offer to the masses. CBD potency is way higher than anywhere else here, we can grow it better than anywhere in the world, Oregon just has the perfect climate. I’m not focusing on the weed, but CBD.
“What I’m developing right now is a superior line of CBD oil, which is different from anything else out there. CBD is a very beneficial product, I’ll be hitting the UK market, absolutely.
“I can sell it legally in the UK right now. I’ve got quite a few people there, who want to support this, but I can also sell directly to the consumers. There’s nothing to stop me.”
Tyler says that his team of investors have pumped in millions to make Royally Grown a commercial success and one of the biggest operators in Oregon, with a huge warehouse facility and hundreds of acres of land.
“We’ve got an operation that’s worth $3 to 5 million, this isn’t a small company,” he said.
“These products we’ve been developing over years. We’ll be doing everything in-house from taking it from the field and giving it direct to the consumer.
“In terms of products, we’re going to have around £20million worth out there, which you’ll be able to buy in the UK and around the world.
“Our CBD is going to be safe, clean and good quality.”
Tyler, who also appears on the MTV reality show called The Royal World, is right about the CBD industry exploding. By 2022, it’l be estimated to be worth $22 billion in the US alone, where most states have at least legalized cannabis for medicinal purposes.
He also hit the headlines last year when it was announced that he’d be growing an ultra-strong cannabis strain called “Markle Sparkle”, which he boasted would “blow your crown off”.
It even gained the backing of celebrities such as rapper Snoop Dogg.
Yet Tyler’s adamant he doesn’t want to “embarrass” his famous auntie, but concentrate on helping people with medical conditions.
He says: “I’ve been doing this way before she even met Harry, I’m not trying to embarrass her and I’m not embarrassed about what I do, I’m thrilled to be in such a hot industry.
“So instead of people thinking of me about Markle Sparkle, I’m using a product that is helping to beat cancer, or give some relief from seizures, aches and pains. I’ve got oil that is good for indigestion. CBD is twice as effective as aspirin for inflammation.
“We’ll be making drops and oils, morning supplements, recovery tinctures that are loaded with vitamins and CBD content.
“On the Royally Grown brand, it’s going to be strictly CBD. There’s still a lot of interest in Markle Sparkle, I’ve been called up by a lot of people and the stories about celebrities and rappers backing us is accurate.
“But CBD is looked at a lot more positively, there’s not this stigma around CBD. And the relief people get from it – I see it every day. That’s a big thing for me, I want a product that will help other people.
From arthritis to athletics, it’ll benefit everyone. It’s a good natural organic product. It’s not about getting high.”
