“Indica or Sativa?” This question about cannabis has dominated weed conversation for quite some time.

However, when describing a cannabis strain’s effects, the sativa or indica comparison is flawed; sativa and indica only represent the physical plant, and plants don’t necessarily determine the psychoactive effects of the strain.
You’ve probably noticed that we proudly fly a Pride flag from the front porch of Pharmhouse Wellness, and for us, it’s more than an expression of support for the LGBTQ community. It’s our way of saying thanks to the queer community for what it has done for us.

Almost every day at Pharmhouse Wellness we meet people who are traveling here looking to buy cannabis. While more and more Midwestern states are legalizing, people from Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin turn to the Mitten for legal cannabis.

The term “420” is a part of every stoner’s vocabulary, but where does this term come from, and how did it become so universally known and used in cannabis culture? We’re here to share the real story behind 420—our favorite holiday.
The advent of cannabis cooking shows, like ”Bong Appetit” on Vice and “Cooking with Cannabis” on Netflix got us thinking about cannabis and food pairings and how it might work for the every day home chef who wants to make food and cannabis work together.
Why do music and cannabis work so well together? For starters, weed brings you into the moment, so you’re completely present with the music. Secondly, marijuana provides you with the perceived expansion of time so when you’re listening to music you can really get lost in it which can be a meditative experience.
Some time has passed since I’ve provided an update on the grow, so I wanted to let you know about the latest happenings on West Wealthy. Unfortunately, we experienced a few setbacks that cost us some time. But the good news is we bounced back and are currently rounding third base, headed for home!
You know a bit about weed, right? Yet, someone will drop some cannabis terms now and then, and you’re not sure what they mean.

We’re here to help you be in “the know”.

You may have heard the analogy that being in the cannabis industry is like being on a rollercoaster. I’m here to certify that analogy is indeed true! One day you feel on top of the world with a new opportunity or achievement in front of you, the next day you find yourself miles away from that euphoria, surrounded by seemingly insurmountable barriers.
By law, in Michigan, we’re each allowed to have up to 10 ounces of cannabis in our house at any given time. And if you’re lucky enough to have 10 ounces of flower, you need to make sure it’s stored to maintain maximum potency and freshness.
The summer has been flying by at Pharmhouse Wellness, and we’ve been busy next door, too, continuing construction on the grow facility. Every grow I’ve had before this was a DIY experiment. You’ll be glad to know this is different—so much planning and thought have gone into this project.

You’ve stumbled upon the first entry in my GRow journal. I decided to write this as a documentary of sorts about the journey I’ve been on in the cannabis industry. From the Grand Rapids Lottery for Special Land Use Permits to opening a cannabis business in a pandemic, and now coming out the other side, we are on the verge of expanding our small but GRowing company—with a cannabis cultivation facility. So let’s get caught up on what’s happening around the GRow!
