Detroit-based cannabis company Calyxeum is set to launch its first retail store this Saturday, April 20th, aligning with the cannabis industry's most significant day of the year. The new outlet, Moses Roses Powered By Calyxeum, located at 6237 Federal St. in Southwest Detroit, will mark its opening with a grand celebration.

Founded in 2019 by Detroit natives Rebecca Colett and LaToyia Rucker, Calyxeum has developed a robust presence in the cannabis sector with two cultivation sites in Detroit and Lansing, and a processing facility in Lansing. The addition of this retail dispensary represents a critical step in completing the company's strategy for vertical integration.

The store will feature an extensive selection of premium products, including specialty flowers, a variety of Michigan-made gummies, Calyxeum's exclusive dessert gummy line, and rosin-infused pre-rolls.

Rebecca Colett, CEO of Calyxeum and co-owner of the new dispensary, expressed her enthusiasm about the expansion, highlighting the significance of establishing a Black woman-owned and operated, vertically integrated cannabis business in their hometown. "This achievement is a proud moment for us as we aim to transform the cannabis experience in Detroit," she stated.

Both Colett and Rucker have been strong advocates for cannabis reform locally and nationally, working towards broader acceptance and potential federal legalization. They continue to commit themselves to giving back to their community and supporting other minority women aspiring to enter the cannabis industry.

LaToyia Rucker, COO of Calyxeum and co-owner of the dispensary, shared her excitement about the milestone. "This opening is not only a celebration of our achievements but also a beacon for future minority women entrepreneurs in the cannabis sector," she said.

The grand opening event promises to be a lively celebration with exclusive deals, a live DJ, complimentary food, comedy performances, and more. The dispensary will operate from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
