Grand Rapids had its very first medical marijuana shop open on Friday.
The new medical marijuana provisioning center called Fluresh, is located at 1213 Phillips Ave. SW near the intersection of Hall Street and Buchanan Avenue.
“We will be providing patients with an environment that I think they will feel really comfortable with. We want it to be inviting, hopefully you will see that by looking around,” said the shop’s CEO Leah Bailey.
The store will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Patients with a Michigan medical marijuana card don’t need to schedule an appointment ahead of time.
“We are open every day of the week. We want to be able to ensure that we can take care of all patients throughout the week at whatever times works them,” said Lindsay Levin, chief marketing and sales officer at the company.
According to the company, their expert matchmakers will be able to help patients find specific products for their individual treatments.
“Each patient will be able to meet with a cannabis adviser one-on-one who will walk them through what issues they are looking to solve, how to help them and what products we have available. We really believe that one-on-one is very important to address all wellness needs,” said Levin.
