Lansterdam In Review: Glorious Cannabis

My ‘Glorious’ weekend


Consistency. Quality. Passion. That’s what Glorious Cannabis shoots for with everything it produces. Located in Rochester Hills, the company specializes in flower-infused pre-rolls, never using any trim or shake.  

Another impressive offering here: they hand roll their joints and infuse them with ice water Bubble Hash. And, as Eva Osipyants of Glorious proudly states, their Bubble Hash “is what started it all.”   

But their website is worth visiting to get the bigger picture because it’s stacked with photos and descriptions of various strains, live rosin, pre-rolls and merchandise. For their flower, they skipped celebrity endorsements and partnered with award-winning Kerry Arold and his Superior brand. Arold has earned a cult-like following thanks to his in-depth research, passion and accuracy — all of which benefit patients, caregivers and operators. This partnership with Glorious introduces exclusive strains and consistency in quality and care.   

“We don’t cut corners,” Osipyants said. “We stay consistent, and we have a kick-ass staff. Without the people, the quality would suffer.” 

An August press release introduced fresh and innovative products like the Tarantula Pre-Rolls, Pure THC Diamond Pre-rolls and Moonrocks. It also unveiled seven inviting strains, available locally at Pure Options and Jars. The Mezcal strain is “the truth,” according to the fellas at Dispo (formerly First Class), who also host the Glorious brand.  

City Pulse caught up with Pete Truby, vice president of marketing at Glorious Cannabis, and asked him five burning questions. Here’s what he had to say. 


High 5 Questions:                     

Pete Truby, Glorious Cannabis 

What made you get into the Cannabis Industry? 

Pete Truby: It’s a very interesting time with the boom in the cannabis industry, so we felt the people and product quality deserve better. And from what we saw, we decided to bring back that quality and pride in what we do. 

Can you explain “infused”? Is it extra THC?  

Regular flower, in THC, ranges 15-to-30%, so infused means “giving more punch.” Enhancing the flower is the infusion.

Superior is your licensing partner; how did that come about? 

Easy decision. With Kerry (Arold), he truly understands and is committed to the caregiver market, and we appreciated how Superior continues to go above and beyond the norm for innovative, consistent care. 

In this ever-changing and developing industry, what’s next for Glorious Cannabis? 

We see Glorious expanding beyond Michigan, taking this to different states while establishing Glorious as the go-to brand for quality flower, pre-rolls and all-around great smoke.  

Have any other exciting releases in the works? 

Yes! In the fall, we are excited to release our college-themed pre-rolls- the U-of-M “Go Blueberry” and MSU “Melon Haze” strains — while we keep serving quality and consistency, loving what we do.
