Michigan is home to numerous award-winning cannabis brands and some of the best (and cheapest) weed in the country. Whether you’re a fan of flower, edibles, concentrates, vapes or even CBD, see below for some of the dankest cannabis products that will brighten your spirits and make this a holiday to remember ... or forget.
CBD Honey Sticks by Vive CBD
$22.95/25-pack at vivecbd.com
Vive’s CBD Honey Sticks are a convenient and tasty way to get your daily CBD intake. The 10-milligram sticks are available in multiple flavors like Original Honey, Green Apple, Blue Raspberry, Grape, Strawberry, Pink Lemonade and Watermelon. Enjoy them by themselves, in your favorite hot drink or drizzled on a snack.
No THC CBD Salve Stick by Mendi
$45 at themendico.com
Mendi’s CBD salve stick is formulated with advanced botanicals, terpenes and oils, which work together to quickly relieve achy muscles and joints. Each stick contains a blend of all-natural ingredients such as arnica, beeswax, calendula, camphor, eucalyptus, menthol, sunflower seed oil and vitamin E as well as 500 milligrams of CBD.
CBD Softgels by CV Sciences
$55/60 capsules at pluscbdoil.com
CV Sciences has a catalog of top-notch CBD products, but its new softgels are next level. Each capsule contains 25 milligrams of CBD, no THC and looks just like any other vitamin in your medicine cabinet. Adding CBD to your daily routine can have many health benefits, such as pain relief, anxiety relief and lower blood pressure.
$20/g at Dispo
Glorious introduced its Strawberry Diesel infused pre-rolls around Valentine’s Day, and I’ve been smoking them ever since. Each bubble hash-infused joint tastes like a chocolate-covered strawberry and provides a relaxed yet focused head high. With each half-gram pre-roll containing between 30 and 45% THC, these little joints go a long way.
Peach Moon Rocks by Simpler Daze (Glorious Cannabis Co.)
$60/3.5g at Dispo
Adding a Simpler Daze moon rock to your next smoking adventure will take you to another planet. Each bud is dipped in hash oil and rolled in kief for maximum potency. Keep an eye out for other Simpler Daze products, like its Asteroids, which are smaller moon rocks that are the perfect size for bowls.
Starry Night By LocalGrove
$50/3.5g at JARS
This indica-dominant hybrid from Harrison Township-based Local Grove is a cross between Trufflez and Runtz, which earned it the Best Medical Hybrid Flower award in 2022’s High Times Cannabis Cup. Smokers can expect deep body relaxation as well as anxiety relief from each deep purple bud.
Mellowz by Society C
$35/3.5g at Bazonzoes
Mellowz is a cross between Society C’s Spritzer, which won High Times’ People’s Choice award for Best Indica Flower in 2022, and Grape Gas, which carries a distinctly sweet, gassy smell. If you’re looking for a strain to put you in a silly, goofy mood, this is definitely it.
Georgia Pie by Grown Rogue
$35/14g at Herbana
Originally formulated by the masterminds at Seed Junky Genetics, Georgia Pie is a cross between Kush Mints and Gelatti. The folks at Grown Rogue did this strain justice — each nug is covered in orange hairs and smells like a freshly baked pie. Keep snacks nearby, because this strain will definitely give you the munchies.
by Glacier Cannabis
$15/g at JARS
A cross between Biscotti and The Menthol, Glacier’s Cold Snap is a great after-work strain. Users report feeling refreshed from its pinene-rich terpene profile and minty undertones.
by Concentrate Kings
$30/2g at JARS
Concentrate Kings, part of the Exclusive Brands family, has been a favorite among Michigan stoners for years. According to my wife, aka the concentrate queen, the company makes the best dabs she’s ever smelled. A blend of apple and grape aromas wafts from the amber live resin inside the jar. Truly a dab made for royalty — one hit and you’ll be feeling on top of the world.
by Five Star Extracts (True North Collective)
$20/g at Gage
Five Star Extracts’ Mega MacFlurry cured badder is similar to the texture of an actual McFlurry — thick and whipped to perfection. Its interesting mix of floral, garlic and citrus terpenes may seem odd, but some folks have reported experiencing pain relief after enjoying this strain.
$22/g at Cannaisseur
Gold Crown has collaborated with some of the biggest cannabis brands in Michigan, but its recent collab with Peninsula Gardens might be its best. This concentrate offers the classic creativity boost typically found with Runtz strains, and its light yellow, crumbly texture makes it a great option to top bowls with or even mix into joints.
Moonbow Live THCA by Element x ProGro
$35/g at Pure Options
Isolated from live resin, these fine crystals of THCA are as versatile as they are potent. Moonbow Live THCA is a collaboration between hometown heroes Element (Lion Labs) and ProGro (Pure Options) and provides a fruity and euphoric pick-me-up when mixed with flower or even other concentrates.
Lemon Cookies Live Resin Baller Jar by Levitate
$40/5g at Herbana
Three years ago, if you told me that I would be able to get FIVE grams of terpy live resin for $40, I would’ve asked for a time machine. Levitate has been making my dreams come true with all its concentrates, but its baller jars are by far my favorite. Its Lemon Cookie live resin is packed with limonene and will send even the most experienced dabber into euphoric bliss.
$15/1g at JARS
After making its debut in Santa Cruz, California, in 2003, Blue Dream has become one of those strains every stoner pines for. A cross of Blueberry and Haze, Blue Dream balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration, making it popular among folks suffering from depression and anxiety.
by Breeze Canna
$35/1g at Pure Options
Convenient and discreet, Breeze Canna’s live resin disposables make vaping a breeze. Space Runtz, a cross of Runtz and Candy Rain, offers a relaxing body buzz. Other strains in the lineup include Legend OG, Tropicana Cherry and Super Lemon Haze.
by Crude Boys
$25/2g at Ascend Cannabis
On the go and really need to stretch your weed? Look no further than the Big Ripper 2-gram disposables from Crude Boys. These fruity distillate vapes are a great option for folks looking to unwind after a long day.
$20/1g at Edgewood Wellness
The rich, flower-forward flavor of Fresh Coast’s concentrates, whether they’re in a jar or a cartridge, is a byproduct of the company’s terpene preservation techniques. Cataract Kush is spicy, skunky and will definitely have you reaching for eye drops in addition to providing a pain-relieving body buzz.
$20/1g at Gage
I was excited to see a vape cartridge from Trap House Co. in my swag bag from Sensi Magazine’s Mardi Gras party last month. Gelato, a favorite strain among stoners young and old, provides a euphoric and giggly high, and each potent puff is smooth and tasty.
$10/1g at Dispo
Earthy, peppery and sweet, Wedding Cake is a popular strain among stoners of all ages. Some users have reported that Wedding Cake’s unique terpene profile helped them manage chronic pain and insomnia.
1:1 THC/CBD Syrup by Chill Medicated
$22/100mg at The Botanical Co.
Caregiver-operated Chill Medicated has taken drink enhancers to the next level with its line of infused syrups. Available in flavors such as Grape, Strawberry, Blue Razz and Watermelon, each syrup is great by itself or mixed with soda. (I personally recommend Sprite.) It’s a great option for stoners that are looking to stay hydrated as the weather warms up.
Cheddar Cheese Balls by UBaked
$10/100mg at Dispo
Michigan’s edible makers keep stepping up their game, and the weed-infused cheese balls from UBaked are a game changer. With 10 milligrams of THC in each individual ball, this tasty snack can really creep up on you. They’re also available in Flaming Hot and Jalapeno flavors.
Synergy Berry Focused 2:1:1 Gummies by Dixie
$15/50mg at Pure Options
Dixie’s Synergy Berry Focused gummies are a blend of 10 milligrams of CBG, the “mother cannabinoid” that’s known for providing a mood boost; 5 milligrams of CBD; and 5 milligrams of THC. They offer an uplifted and focused head high without the jitters some folks may experience from other sativa edibles.
Sour Laser Lemon Gummies by Hype Cannabis
$3/100mg at Herbana
Reminiscent of Sour Patch Kids, the sour versions of Hype Cannabis’ popular gummies have become a hit around the state. Other flavors include Boss Berry, Groovy Grape, Black Cherry and Pineapple Prodigy. Plus, they’re vegan!
Mini Peanut Butter Cups by Mojo
$2/10mg at JARS
If you prefer your weed with chocolate, consider grabbing a pack of individually wrapped, cannabis-infused peanut butter cups from the masterminds at Mojo. Each cup contains 10 milligrams of THC and has the perfect balance of milk chocolate and peanut butter.
Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Sticks by Motor City Cannabites
$8/100mg at Dispo
I could eat the whole bag of these infused pretzel sticks from Motor City Cannabites. Each pretzel contains 2.5 milligrams of THC, which is perfect for folks that are into microdosing or are just entering the world of edibles. They’re are also available in Honey Mustard, Italian Parmesan and Buffalo.
True Blue Gummies by True North Confections (True North Collective)
$12/200mg at JARS
These high-dosage gummies are not for the novice stoner. Each pack contains four 50-milligram gummies that are easy to cut in half if need be. True North Confections offers a variety of unique gummy flavors like Citrus Splash, Fruit Punch, Cosmic Kiwi, Forbidden Apple, Pineapple Paradise, Strawberry Fields, Motown Mango, Traverse City Cherry, Electric Watermelon, True Blue, Purple Rain and Tangerine Dream. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each gummy creates a deep body high that’s great for pain relief.
$100 at octavehightech.com
Octave’s Terp Timer is a wireless thermal sensor that allows you to dial in exact temperatures to heat concentrates. Set your desired temperature and the Terp Timer will beep to let you know when it’s ready. The result is a smooth, tasty dab every time.
Simple but effective, the small blade inside the plastic cylinder helps split cigarillos evenly and easily. Put one on your keychain next to your bottle opener and you’ll be prepared for anything!
