Michigan as a whole is an outdoorsman’s paradise. Canoers, kayakers and fisherman would be hard-pressed to run out of open water and rivers to explore. Hikers, bikers and walkers can start out in a downtown center and by the end of the day be deep in the woods without another soul around. More than half of the state’s total landmass is covered by forests and lakes. With those lakes come beaches and Michigan has no shortage of beachfront to explore. In fact, the state has more than 500 miles of public beaches including Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park, Grand Haven City Beach, and Mackinaw City Beach.
One thing many people notice about Michigan is the abundance of cherry and apple trees. Cherries are the state’s largest agricultural product and at one time Michigan was the country’s largest producer of the fruit. Although surpassed by Washington State, Michigan cherries are still sold around the world and are renowned for their sweetness. It stands to reason that the rich agricultural history of the state would produce some fantastically talented cannabis cultivators and it certainly has. That fact is proven by having a strain named after the state, Michigan Skunk.

Detroit has become the major urban center of the state followed by Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor and Lansing, the state capital. Detroit is a city known by many names and it has given America, and the world many iconic assets. Henry Ford founded the Ford Motor Company in Dearborn and began the manufacturing trend that earned Detroit the name Motor City USA. Motown Records saw its beginnings here and gave us legendary artists such as Arethra Franklin, Stevie Wonder, and Diana Ross, all pioneers of the Motown music scene. In recent years the state has produced superstars like Eminem, The White Stripes, and more mediocre artists like Kid Rock.
Sports fans have just about every game available to them to cheer for at a professional level, and the illustrious Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League are part of the original six teams the league began with. The NHL team has won 11 Stanley Cup championships since its inception in 1942 and has given credence to the nickname Hockeytown. Detroit is one of only 12 American cities to host a team from all 4 of the big North American sports leagues. This includes the aforementioned Red Wings, The Detroit Lions of the NFL, Major League Baseball’s Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball League.
Residents and visitors really never run out of ways to pass the time in Michigan. History buffs and car lovers appreciate the Henry Ford Museum, located in Dearborn. It’s a national historic site and features antique cars alongside many objects of cultural significance to the state and country. The museum has 2 very rare artifacts that make it well worth the trip. First, the seat that Abraham Lincoln was sitting in when he was assassinated, and secondly, the bus that Rosa Parks justifiably refused to give up her seat on. The state’s maritime history is on display at The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum located at Whitefish Point on the shore of Lake Superior. The museum is also home to the oldest operating lighthouse on the Great Lakes.
Created in Seattle, Washington in the 1980s and further refined in the Netherlands from 1985 onwards, Northern Lights is arguably the most recognised weed variety available. It’s no wonder that this true legend has stood the test of time, as it fulfils pretty much everything you could want from a strong weed strain.
A popular option for both home and commercial growers all over the world, OG Kush was first cultivated in Florida way back in the 1990s when a team of weed breeders crossed a Californian strain with a Kush plant they had imported from Amsterdam.
If you rent your home, you’ll need to check that your landlord is comfortable with you growing weed on their property. It’s only polite for one thing, and if you were to establish a cannabis crop without prior approval they would be within their rights to evict you.

Plants can be ready to harvest in around 8 or 9 weeks, and due to its long vegetative phase and hardy nature Chocolope has a strong resilience to the nutrient and watering mistakes novice growers tend to make from time to time.
It’s simple, really. Either go online (which we recommend), or visit your friendly local cannabis business to find out what’s available. In the past, local community groups have been known to organise informal seed swap events. These sound like a great opportunity to make use of any surplus seeds, so ask around or look online to find out if there are any similar events happening soon.
Instead, pick a strain which will grow happily indoors, and will respond well to growing techniques such as SOG (Sea of Green) and SCROG (Screen of Green).
In fact, with low rents, an abundance of cheap land, and of course the resurgent city of Detroit, this charming, progressive state has much to offer anyone looking to get involved in the cannabis industry.
