We are NOBO. We planted our roots in Michigan in 2020 and opened our grow. We opened our first of three retail locations in 2021.
We have a long history of growing in Colorado and running cannabis retail businesses. As Michigan opened up we were afforded the opportunity to bring our expertise and experience to a new and growing market.
Where can people find your products?
Our products can be found across Michigan and primarily in our stores in Edwardsburg, Muskegon and Benton Harbor.
How many employees do you have?
We have over 100 employees.
What services or products do you offer?
We are a vertically integrated multistate operator who offers cannabis products for wholesale and retail sales. We sell flower in bulk for wholesale as well as prepackaged. We sell gummies, prerolls, carts, and solventless products.
What is your company mission?
To grow the acceptance of cannabis and remove the stigma associated with it. We strive to grow and sell very high quality and consistently good products for consumers to enjoy.
Why do you feel your business is important to the community?
Our business is important to the communities in which we operate as we provide jobs and deliver new tax revenue. We try to hire from within our communities and provide training to grow the skillset of the community. In addition, we run a program called NOBO Cares that delivers goods and services back to the communities through various outreach programs including supporting local shelters, donations to causes, and the like.
How does your business give back to your community?
We have a “round-up your change program” and we put the round-ups back into the community through donations to local causes. At the holidays we have a personal needs drive whereby we collect toothpaste, diapers, formula, soap, and other personal care items and we donate them to shelters in the community.
In conjunction with Pride Month, we sell a limited edition product with a portion of the proceeds going to various LGBTQ+ organizations. In October we sell specially packaged flowers with a portion of the proceeds going to Michigan-based breast cancer organizations.
We also do organized trash pick ups to go beyond just using money to show our community support. We are proud to be in the communities where we operate and it is an important focus for us. We are bringing a new industry with jobs and tax revenue to help grow the communities.
It is a two-way street for us. We want to give back while providing a much sought-after product. We want to be the hometown cannabis company of choice.
