20 must-try cannabis products for the Michigan stoner in your life

You know that R.E.M. song “Everybody Hurts”? Well, in 2021, Michael Stipe could change the lyrics to “everybody smokes” and he’d have a stoner anthem on his hands because, honestly, it seems like ever since Michigan legalized the recreational sale of marijuana to adults over the age of 21 in 2018, everyone from Mom, Dad, Grandma Francis, doctors, teachers, celebs, and — yes, even Fido and Fluffy — are toking, dosing, and vaping themselves to good vibes territory. Whether you’re new to the weed game or an experienced midnight toker, navigating metro Detroit’s recreational dispensary counters can be a whirlwind of letters, numbers, and packaging. We’ve compiled an interesting list of must-have cannabis-related products, including strains, gummies, dab rigs, and reading material to take you — or someone you know — higher.

20 must-try cannabis products for the Michigan stoner in your life
For the Connoisseur Who Can’t Roll a Decent Joint to Save Their Life
Slow Roller 12-pack by Center Creek, $65+
Arbors Wellness, 321 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; 734-929-2602; arborswellness.com
In 2021, we no longer have to feel like total dweebs because we can’t roll a smokable joint. Though it remains a point of pride for those who roll bomb-ass joints (we’re looking at you, Seth Rogen), the advent of cones, or those handy pre-filtered tubes you dump weed into, has made life a whole lot easier. However, for those who want to streamline the whole damn process, there are pre-rolls, or, in the case of the Slow Roller 12-pack from Arbors Wellness, there are fancy pre-rolls. Starting at $65, these compact pre-rolls come in their own tin and include a total of an eighth of herb. For $75, you could find yourself smoking Six Labs’ Chem D, which packs a 30.9% THC punch at which point someone might as well pre-roll you straight to bed.

For those looking for the most consistent gummy experience
Wana Gummies, $22-$26
1st Quality Medz, 286 Burke St., River Rouge; 313-406-4688; firstqualitymeds.com
We know by now that not all gummies are created equal. However, in all of our trials, experimentation, and that time we ate a non-dispensary-sanctioned brownie at that goth club and had a panic attack because Jesus and Satan were playing Dance Dance Revolution and we couldn’t discern which plane of existence we were on, there is one edible that give us the greatest stoner gift of all: consistency. Wana, a favorite brand out of Colorado, offers a variety of potent gummy candies. Each child-proof container has 10 sweet and/or sour gummies that, together, add up to 100mg of THC, CBD, or a bit of both, depending on the variant. The size and consistency of the high allows you to customize your dose without having to choose between Jesus or Satan, you know? Oh, we know you know.

For the old-school flower-lover who wants a high-tech high
PAX 3, $250
Skymint, 20940 John R. Rd., Hazel Park; 313-379-5369 | 1958 S. Industrial Hwy., Ann Arbor; 734-627-7360; skymint.com
At some point in the last few years, vaping became synonymous with concentrates, the rechargeable batteries with the cartridges of oil. But before concentrates rose to popularity and, you know, long before the word Juul became part of the global lexicon, there was humble herb and humble vaporizers. The PAX, however, as discreet as it may be, is far from humble. The first PAX sprouted in 2012 and has since evolved into a sleek and sexy conduction oven that gently heats cannabis flower in just 22 seconds upon demand. Oh, and this high-tech vape baby isn’t just for flower. The kit, which comes with a USB charger, maintenance kit (you really do need to clean this thing, OK?), and both flat and raised mouthpieces, also comes with a concentrate insert so you can do you — you know, just higher.

Gage Cannabis Co., 1551 Academy St., Ferndale; 888-424-3463; gageusa.com
For most of his NHL career, much of which was spent with the Detroit Red Wings, Darren McCarty did his best to trick the frequent and random drug testing because, yeah, he almost always had cannabis in his system. After his days on the ice came to an end, the four-time Stanley Cup champion found himself at a turning point following a near-death experience. McCarty has been alcohol-free since 2015 and has turned to medicating with cannabis daily, hence the famed hockey player’s latest line of cannabis products. Among the products, which are made in partnership with Pincanna labs, is this powerful and calming CBD roll-on topical containing 1,000 mg of hemp-derived CBD.
