How and when did your collective start up?
Early in 2009, right after the passage of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act, we started a medical cannabis community outreach program of monthly public meetings held at the city of Ann Arbor’s Senior Center. Hundred’s of people came to hear speakers, share information, and find answers to their many questions.
We opened our current location adjacent to the Ann Arbor Hash Bash/Monroe Street Fair in early 2010 to better serve patients’ needs on a full time basis. We selected this location to reflect our passion for patient rights and to help promote informed public discussions about medical cannabis.

What does your collective offer patients that they can’t find anywhere else?
At Green Planet, we provide our patients with as much information as possible to assist them in making the best choice. For every strain we provide our own description of its effects, taste, smell, and third party testing for potency, CBDs, etc. Our caregivers are trained to offer expert one-on-one consultation to help each patient identify what best fits their individual needs, likes, dislikes and budget.
