Arcanna was formed by a small group of close-knit people with over 30 years operating in the cannabis industry in all sectors. Our team includes experts who own one of the largest indoor gardening stores in the state, and people with real world, long term experience and success in operating and teaching others to operate cannabis cultivation and processing operations.
In Spring of 2019 as the Michigan Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act was beginning to come into place, these gentlemen all met to discuss one goal: the best way to bring a quality product to as many people as possible. Unlike other operations and facilities, whose goal is simply to make as much money as possible, our goal was set forth from the beginning in what we feel is the best way. Our philosophy is that success is simply a byproduct of the passion, caring, and drive it takes to truly put out what we hope is a representation of the best we can do in all production-based aspects of the burgeoning marijuana industry.
Finding Our Home
Meeting after meeting took place, and finally the big step was made in June of 2019: we selected our home in the beautiful community of Ionia, Michigan, where we have been welcomed with open arms. We found our home on 29 Beardsley Rd., right across the street from Ventra, in the industrial area of town where we could realize our vision of cultivating, processing, and retailing all of our own product right on site so we can easily monitor all aspects of the process to ensure everything is being done right.
We finally finished closing on the building in August of 2019, and immediately set to work. Many changes were to be made: site improvements to the sewer and water lines, storm drainage, parking lot and driveway improvements, building repairs and remodels. As time wore on, the retail Provision Center was the first section of our vision to come to realization and we are proud to be open in the Spring of 2020.
Into the Future
Our construction is ongoing, our vision is ever expanding, and our dreams are being realized right before our very eyes. When you visit, you’ll even be able to see this through the windows we’ve installed right into our grow rooms and you’ll be able to witness the growth of our dreams into beautiful flowers! We ask you to join us, and welcome you to experience the magic of ArCanna, where we are Crafted for Cannabis.
