Redbud Roots, A Fan- and Zen-Favorite
Growing at an incredible rate since they began in 2017, Redbud Roots styles itself as “Michigan’s leading cannabis processor and cultivator,” and it’s hard to knock that claim. With a product line consisting of nearly 3 dozen separate products suitable for recreational and medicinal use, Redbud Roots is truly a comprehensive retail cannabis vendor. For edible lovers, their Hash House is a must-try for potent effects. For intense flavor, their Fruit Stand vapes will be a staple, though those who prefer the classic flavor of cannabis will want to curate a stash their full-spectrum cartridges. Dabbers will love the Hash Rosin and Live Resin Budder options, which provide a punch of flavor and effects.
And don't sleep on RedBud Roots flower. Their bud is grown with care, with genetics selected for their stunning characteristics, potency, and robust terpene profiles. But don't take it from us.

"Love these for calming anxiety and quieting my brain after a hectic day. They make me feel physically and mentally relaxed and happy but don’t knock me out too hard. Just enough to help me fall asleep on my own."
Cannabis PM is another well-known retail brand focused on chewable gummies, and as you might guess by the name, their formulations are specially designed to help promote healthy sleep.

Cresco’s operation doesn’t just focus on a great flower product and high-end resins, it also focuses on education, equity, and social justice within the booming cannabis industry.

Crude Boys products are well known to cannabis users across Michigan for the fun packaging, big flavors, and reasonable price point. They make quality vape carts derived from a variety of great strains like Cherry Pie and Grand Daddy Purp.

Go out for a big rip with beloved strains like Ice Cream Cookies or Ghost Train.

With over 15 years of experience cultivating innovative and high-testing strains, it’s hard to go wrong with DogHouse Flower.

This philosophy pays dividends for users of their comprehensive line of cannabis products, which includes everything from flower and pre-rolled joints to vape carts and concentrates.
Concentrate lovers likely know and love Humblebee. Dedicated to crafting high-testing extracts, Humblebee’s concentrates and concentrate-infused pre-rolls are some of the hardest-hitting in the state, and they make a crucial addition to our Zen Leaf Buchanan menu. Live resin is where Humblebee shines; freshly harvested cannabis is frozen at -80°C, and extracted using proprietary methods to capture the plant's essence.
A top edibles brand, KIVA is probably best known for their high-end chocolates. Gourmet-level candy bars infused with epic cannabis strains: enough said! Each bar contains 200mg THC, broken out into easily dosable 5mg pieces. Check out innovative flavors like Raspberries & Cream, Birthday Cake, and reviewer-favored Churro.
Here's what reviewer h****a experienced when dosing Churro:
"This is the only flavor worth buying. Absolutely delicious, and it sells out all the time. Great for anyone who isn't too familiar with weed and wants something easy to help relax without tripping too hard."
Little Feet Infused Pre-rolls
For those who prefer pre-rolls, Little Feet never disappoint. A play on Big Foot (with a logo to match), each pre-roll offers unique genetics that are packed with care.

A sub-brand of Real Leaf Solutions, you can find incredible infusions using Real Leaf's best strains.
Are you headed to Zen Leaf looking for something to soothe an aching muscle rather than find your ideal flower?

They even produce an innovative cannabis-infused Muscle Freeze product with a solid 300mg of THC. For general therapeutic use, try their 1:1 preparation with equal amounts of THC and CBD, available as both a tincture and a topical compound.
Peachy Hash & Co.
There are few brands dedicated solely to the art of hash making, and Michigan is lucky enough to have one of the best - Peachy Hash & Co. Their canopy space fuels their hash development, with each bud flash-frozen to capture the strain's living chemical profile, and ice water extracted for a pure, potent experience. Crafted into sensational textures Live Hash Rosin, Live Hash Rosin Budder, and Live Hash Rosin Jam, concentrate connoisseurs will want to scoop each strain available. For those not quite of dabbing caliber yet, the Live Hash Rosin Disposable Vapes are an excellent, easy way to access solventless cannabis, as are the full-spectrum Live Rosin Gummies.

Real Leaf Solutions
Some of the state’s top strains come from Real Leaf Solutions. This family-owned cultivator was the first approved in Northern Michigan, and puts a heavy focus on curating strains that showcase spectacular structure, compounded with delightful effects that never disappoint. Spiked Punch, Secret Donkey, and Lilac Diesel strains tantalize the senses as much as they are fun to say. A special cultivar to many, though, is White Mo, a cross of The White and GMO with earthy and piney flavors.
Here's what s****8 had to say about White Mo:
"Top 5 flower I've ever had. Doesn't get more top shelf than this."

Another well-regarded edibles brand focused on chewable gummies, Wana’s strength lies in its range of enticing flavors, including Strawberry Margarita, Exotic Yuzu, and Dream Berry. They also offer different formulations, such as a CBD-forward 2:1 ratio gummy, as well as a sleep aid formula.

Michigan Cannabis Dispensary FAQs

Read on for answers to common questions about marihuana in Michigan:
What Do I Need To Know Before Going to a Dispensary in Michigan?
For adults of legal cannabis consumption age (21+), visiting the local dispensary in Michigan is as simple as remembering to bring your valid ID. For recreational cannabis, there is no complicated licensing process for consumers. You simply enter the dispensary, hand your ID over at the desk, and you will be called in to shop when it’s your turn. State laws limit the number of customers that can shop at once, so don’t be surprised if there’s a short wait in the lobby involved at popular dispensaries.
For medical patients, there is a licensing process and doctor’s visits involved. Still, having a medical card often leads to discounts at many Michigan dispensaries. For that reason, acquiring your medical card is worth looking into for medical patients who use large amounts of cannabis.
Can Anyone Buy from a Dispensary in Michigan?
Only those of legal age who possess a valid ID can shop at a cannabis dispensary in Michigan. Michigan is serious about preventing minors from accessing retail cannabis, so there’s no way to get into your local dispensary without a valid photo ID, most typically in the form of a driver’s license.
Can You Go Into a Dispensary Without an ID Card in Michigan?
No. It is against the law for someone to shop at a cannabis dispensary in the State of Michigan without establishing their identity through a valid photo ID. If you attempt to visit any reputable dispensary in the State of Michigan without a valid ID, expect to be promptly asked to leave.
Can You Buy at a Dispensary in Michigan if You’re From Out of State?
Yes. As long as you are aged 21+, a valid driver’s license or other government photo ID from out of state (or even out of the country) should be sufficient to get you entered into a dispensary’s system and allow you to purchase recreational adult-use cannabis (although exact policies may vary from place to place). Be advised, however, that any cannabis purchased in Michigan should be used in a private, appropriate location within the state. Attempting to take your cannabis purchase across state lines can lead to serious criminal liability and penalties.
Can You Go to Multiple Dispensaries in One Day in Michigan?
Yes, there is no law preventing you from shopping at multiple dispensaries in a 24-hour period, so long as you do not purchase more than the legally allotted limit of cannabis. If you’re shopping around for the best products and prices, consider a visit to Zen Leaf’s fully stocked Buchanan, MI, location.
