An established cannabis business in Niles unveiled its new retail space to the community on Friday. After over five years of cultivating cannabis, Native Michigan Remedies (NMR) opened the doors to its Class A cannabis microbusiness at 2112 Industrial Dr., Niles, much to the delight of owner William Haas. The business marked the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday afternoon. NMR operates from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday through Monday.

"It feels good," Haas remarked. "It's a tough industry; it's not for the light-hearted or people with shallow pockets, so to finally have this open is great." The Class A microbusiness showcases a diverse range of "seed to shelf" NMR products alongside items from other growers. In Michigan, a Class A microbusiness license allows the holder to cultivate up to 300 cannabis plants, acquire mature plants from other licensed growers, and utilize external processors.

Haas co-founded NMR in 2019 with Brian Crespo, who now manages the NMR 2 processing lab with Haas' son, Skyler. NMR initially began as a cultivation facility before expanding to include the processing lab. The decision to pursue a microbusiness license was a strategic move to remain competitive in Michigan's dynamic cannabis industry.

"We're still small-town guys from Niles," Crespo said. "We know we have great products, and we understand the public demands our quality. To continue providing for our community and offering good jobs, we needed to pivot to a Class A microbusiness."

Both Haas and Crespo believe that their smaller operation enables them to produce high-quality products with meticulous attention to detail.
