Calyxeum Set to Open New Dispensary in Detroit on 4/20


Calyxeum, a Detroit-based cannabis cultivator and processor, is set to open its first retail dispensary in Detroit on Saturday, April 20. The company has partnered with Michigan cannabis retailer Moses Roses to unveil Moses Roses Powered By Calyxeum which will open its doors for the first time on 4/20, the company states.

Owned and operated by longtime cannabis industry advocates and native Detroiters Rebecca Colett and LaToyia Rucker, Calyxeum’s new dispensary will be located at 6237 Federal St. in southwest Detroit. The organization currently operates two cannabis growing facilities – one in Detroit and one in Lansing, MI, along with one processing facility in Lansing, according to the company.

By opening Detroit’s newest cannabis dispensary, Colett and Rucker have become two of the very few minority women cannabis dispensary owners in the U.S.

Calyxeum’s Cannabis Offerings

The adult-use cannabis retail store will be offering bulk flower and packaged varieties, as well as an extensive selection of cannabis products to suit every preference, the company states. Customers can indulge in an array of boutique flower genetics, Michigan brand gummies and pre-rolls, including Calyxeum’s signature dessert gummy line and rosin-infused pre-rolls.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to take this next step in the expansion of our business and building the Calyxeum brand,” said Colett, Calyxeum CEO and co-owner of Moses Roses Powered By Calyxeum, in a news release. “Being a Black woman-owned and operated, vertically-integrated cannabis company in our hometown of Detroit truly means a lot to us and it’s an achievement that we’re very proud of as we help redefine the cannabis experience.”

“We’re very happy to see this moment arrive for us as a company and as trailblazers for other minority women in the cannabis industry,” said Rucker, Calyxeum COO and co-owner of Moses Roses Powered By Calyxeum, in the release. “Our work in the community and cannabis space is far from finished as we’re fully aware of the challenges that still exist for minorities who want to enter the industry. Let’s take this special day on 4/20 to celebrate our accomplishments and then we’ll continue leading the way for others who also want to make their mark in cannabis.”

Highlights for the 4/20 grand opening of Moses Roses Powered By Calyxeum are set to include product and pricing specials, a live DJ, free food and comedy, the company states. Daily hours of operation are 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. seven days a week.
