C3 Industries Opens Weed Dispensary in Time for St. Paddy’s
The Portland-based cannabis producer and retailer, C3 Industries, declared that its High Profile boutique provisioning center in Ann Arbor would open on March 14.
The dispensary is licensed for both recreational and medical sales and is the second in a series of cannabis provisioning centers this company is planning to open in the state of Michigan over the next two years.
This store is the first in Michigan to offer a range of cannabis products from the company’s cultivation and manufacturing facility in Webberville. It will also stock weed products from other providers.
Legalization has allowed the company to offer high-quality products and a “premium retail experience” to patients and consumers alike, said C3 Industries’ CEO Ankur Rungta.
This cannabis venture was founded in 2017 in Portland and is looking to expand to Massachusetts and Missouri in the very near future.
The company’s CEO dubbed Ann Arbor “the epicenter of cannabis culture and activism in Michigan,” and with good reason. This city has played a huge role in the movement to legalize cannabis.
Dispensaries in Ann Arbor were the first to welcome recreational cannabis consumers when adult-use weed sales were launched statewide. It’s also home to Ann Arbor’s Hash Bash — an almost 50-year old annual event centered on reforming federal, state, and local cannabis laws. The first Hash Bash took place back in 1972, just four months after the famous John Sinclair Freedom Rally.
C3 Industries opens its door to cannabis users in time for the 49th Hash Bash Cup, as well as another “green” holiday — St. Patrick’s Day.
Although not a celebration traditionally associated with weed, hints of green can be found in more than just beer and clothes on St. Paddy’s Day. A few years ago, the California weed delivery company, Eaze, witnessed a 42% increase in cannabis orders compared to the average 18% increase they usually get on Fridays.
As more people become aware of the dangers of alcohol abuse, this holiday might just turn from Irish to “Highrish.”
