Some of my closest childhood friends are hockey players. My family is also filled with hockey fanatics. So, when they heard that I had a chance to interview the great Darren McCarty last week, there was a bit of jealousy in the air — especially because I don’t really care about sports. more
The product reviews featured in this column over the last year have placed way too much of an emphasis on the THC content of any given cannabis product, which I’ve recently learned plays far less of a role in determining the dankness of your bud and the richness of the resulting high. more
Over the last two years, this weekly column has afforded me the opportunity to sample hundreds of different cannabis products from every pot shop in Greater Lansing. Most of them have been good. Some have been great. But only a few products have been truly outstanding. more
For as much time as I’ve spent browsing the shelves at local pot shops and reporting on industry trends, you’d think that I would have a pretty good idea on how to grow my own marijuana — especially because it’s legal in Michigan to harvest up to 12 plants at home. more
Regular readers know that I’m a bit of marijuana traditionalist. I like to keep my smoke simple.  more
I know what you’re thinking: Another dispensary is coming to Lansing? We already have more than a dozen pot shops open across the region. How many more can the Capital City handle? more
Ryan Basore launched Redemption Cannabis last March for an obvious reason: redemption. more
This week’s paper is filled with all sorts of unique gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season. Unfortunately, very few of those featured gifts were designed to get you mind-numbingly high. more

Shallman was declared Lansing’s best budtender in this year’s Top of the Town contest and since their favorite part of the job is helping customers find cannabis products, Managing Editor Kyle Kaminski handed them the reins to this week’s Lansterdam in Review column. more
While several cannabis brands were highlighted in the results of this year’s Top of the Town contest, the battle for Greater Lansing’s dankest marijuana was one that was largely waged only by two local industry heavyweights: Skymint and Pure Options. Both companies are based in Lansing. And both were at each other’s necks across several key cannabis categories this year. more
The three marijuana strains featured in this week’s Lansterdam in Review were directly decided by the results of the 2021 Top of the Town contest, where our readers determined there were three clear favorites this year for the most delectably dank marijuana strains in Greater Lansing — one jazzy, energetic sativa; one sleepy, relaxing indica; and one middle-of-the-road hybrid. more
I’m a flower guy. While I’ve dabbled with plenty of the concentrates, edibles and vape pens available in Greater Lansing’s recreational marijuana market, I’ve found that, with few exceptions, nothing beats an old fashioned bag of weed — usually rolled up into a joint or two. more
This column featured a comprehensive guide last month to the four cheapest stores to buy an ounce of recreational marijuana in Greater Lansing. First Class Cannabis Co. has long held that local record with several dank strains available for $120, plus tax, for about $139 out the door. more
It’s no secret in the City Pulse office that I’m obsessed with fall-inspired flavors: Pumpkin spice lattes, cinnamon and hazelnut pastries, maple syrup and salted caramels, spiced apple ciders and donuts, toasted marshmallows and a shot or two of bourbon to help stay warm by the fire. more
Fwaygo Extracts is the reincarnation of True Labs, a cannabis processing company which rebranded itself in 2017 and now operates its packaging department at the old Roma Bakery building on Cedar Street.

All 28 of the licenses for adult-use or medical marijuana retailers in Lansing have been doled out. More than a dozen of those shops are open for business. Others are still under construction. more
Hundreds of cannabis activists gathered at the State Capitol last week to push back against recently proposed state legislation that aims to reduce both the number of plants that medical marijuana … more
