We are passionate crusaders for the healing benefits of cannabis and staunch advocates of correcting the devastating effects of prohibition. We continually update our menu to reflect the latest research in strain efficacy and safety. Our advisory board consists of several doctors in various specialties to advise our staff and patients on how to best use cannabis.
We grow our own plants and partner with select Michigan craft cannabis farmers to offer the highest quality and variety of products. By fully complying with all regulatory bodies, we adhere to seed-to-sale practices that ensure consumer-friendly, safe and bio-organic products.
Our cannabis is hand trimmed to maintain and preserve trichomes, which are some of the most potent medicinal compounds of cannabis. And we are committed to growing green, with systems designed to increase energy efficiency, conserve water and reduce our carbon footprint.
