Lansing, MI – Two Lansing-based family-owned cannabis companies are teaming up to offer new strains of flower to Michigan consumers. Select strains of Franklin Fields flower will be sold under the Blooming Botanicals brand along with a variety of unique products that are on their way. You can now find Blooming Botanicals flower at provisioning centers across the state, including Franklin Fields’ affiliate provisioning centers: The Botanical Co. in Lansing, Tawas and Kalkaska.
The partnership brings together two companies focused on showcasing the full spectrum profile of the cannabis plant for consumers. Blooming Botanicals has built a strong following as a CBD-only brand since its founding two years ago by offering herbal-infused tinctures and healing salves, as well as pet CBD products. Franklin Fields is a caregiver-founded Class C grow operation that focuses on growing plants that exhibit terpene compounds (flavor and scent compounds) that help unlock the beneficial aspects of the cannabinoids.
“Both of our companies were founded with the intent to bring good people together through cannabis, and the team at Blooming Botanicals are some of the best around,” said Franklin Fields Chief Operating Officer Brian Gruber. “They have built a rock-solid reputation of providing quality products that focus on the full cannabinoid spectrum, and we are thrilled to incorporate our flower into their offerings.”
Blooming Botanicals is a family-run business founded by husband-and-wife Bryan Madle and Sarah Birney along with their brother, Ben Birney. They all have been working in the cannabis space for more than a decade as growers, crafters of infused products and makers of nationally renowned functional glass art. Blooming Botanicals products can currently be found in 25 stores and provisioning centers across the state.
The first Franklin Fields-grown strains to be released under the Blooming Botanicals label will include Apple Fritter, Kiwi Sherbet, Z Crasher & Malibu Mirage. The two companies also have plans to partner on herbal infused THC and CBD hybrid tinctures, creative extracts and other products that will be unveiled early next year.
“Our background in holistic health serves as the foundation for everything we do at Blooming Botanicals. We have seen first-hand how cannabis has improved the lives of our friends, family members and even our pets,” said Blooming Botanicals co-owner Sarah Birney. “With this partnership we will now be able to incorporate the THC side of the plant into our product offerings, and there is no better company to team up with than Franklin Fields. Not only is their grow facility immaculate, but you can see in their final product that their team has an unmatched level of care and respect that goes into their plants.”
Blooming Botanicals dedicates a portion of each purchase to Association Community Carbon Trees (ACCT) to plant trees near the equator in Costa Rica. ACCT’s mission to counteract deforestation provides wildlife corridors and habitat biodiversity as well as mitigating the effects of climate change. ACCT employs locals in the community to offer an income with sustainable jobs for a more sustainable future. Blooming Botanicals also continues to partner and support a variety of new non-profits including, Backline, The Last Prisoner Project and The Trevor Project.
Both companies are members of the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association.
