Pistil Janes: A Leading Light of the Michigan Women in Cannabis Movement
One of the many upsides of running a family of dispensaries means that we get to interact with a great many inspiring cannabis cultivators, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. Given that it sprang from the Pleasantrees family, one of the most exciting offerings of the last few years is Pistil Janes, a women-led purveyor of exceptional Michigan-grown cannabis flower bred for specific effects. The brand is a leading light of the women in cannabis movement, and we couldn’t be prouder to offer their products in our Michigan dispensaries.
If you’ve yet to sample Pistil Janes’ cannabis flower offerings, you’re in for a treat. Here’s the story behind this exciting brand and their mission to empower and uplift other Michigan women.
Women in Cannabis: The Pistil Janes Story
Michigan certainly doesn’t lack for exceptional cannabis flower. If the winters can be, well…challenging, the hot summer months and warm fall are perfect for producing top-shelf cannabis. Seeing as all the cannabis plants we humans consume are female—yes, really!—it makes all the more sense that a women-centered cannabis brand would rise to the very top of the pack.
Why focus on women? As numerous studies show, cannabis—especially high-THC flower—can be effective in combating pain, inflammation, and stress, especially when used in moderation. As a result, cannabis is tailor-made for reducing the impacts of menstrual and premenstrual discomfort. This dovetails with Pistil Janes’ mission to help normalize and destigmatize cannabis and empower women through volunteer efforts, hygiene product drop-boxes, and donations.
When it comes to categorizing their cannabis flower, Pistil Janes takes an unusual approach. Like most top-shelf THC flower, their offerings are single-strain varietals. However, they’re classified in three groups for targeted effects:
- The Empress: Aimed at early-rising go-getters, the strains in this category energize, inspire, and motivate. They’re generally sativa strains especially high in terpenes.
- The Goddess: Potent but balanced, these strains are bred for a mix of classic energizing sativa and relaxing indica effects.
- The Temptress: Described as “bliss in a bag,” these strains tend to be relaxing indicas. They’re great for unwinding, increasing mindfulness, or augmenting any other aspects of your evening routine.
