SUPPORT BRANDS WITH A MISSION IN MAY!
Each week throughout the month of May, we are sharing brands that have a mission and how you can support cannabis with a purpose!
TreeTown Cannabis’ newest product, Sugarbush gummies, offers support to those looking for expungement of marijuana offenses on their records. A portion of proceeds from Sugarbush products will go towards the Great Lakes Expungement Network (GLEN).
Introducing Sugar Bush by TreeTown! Fast-acting and vegan! The perfect harmony of sweet and tart. Each bite will rapidly elevate your vibe and deliver you to a carefree state of mind. Not only are these fast-acting, but also supports those who are looking for expungement of marijuana offenses on their records!
For each sale of the new product, the company will donate $1 to GLEN, a nonprofit offering free expungement help to those with marijuana offenses on their records. Records expungement impacts around 250,000 people in Michigan.
The Great Lakes Expungement Network (GLEN) is a network that can help assist with walking through the application process, scan for eligibility, obtain necessary documents, and match the individual to an attorney who will represent them in court. Past criminal offenses can create unnecessary barriers to housing and employment long after someone has paid their dues to society. Let GLEN help you take advantage of Michigan’s new “Clean Slate” law.

PROVIDING CERTIFIED KIND ORGANIC CANNABIS; AUNT SPARKIE'S MISSION IS TO BRING HIGH-QUALITY, ORGANIC CANNABIS TO OUR HOME STATE OF MICHIGAN.
Aunt Sparkie’s takes pride in their organic cannabis filled with micro and macro organisms, with no pesticides or synthetic nutrients
The team tries to focus on five specific ways to keep up with their sustainability with: harnessing sunlight, reusing soil & plant material, recyclable glass jars & reclaimed ocean plastic packaging, organically protecting our waterways, and reducing their carbon footprint
Reducing energy use by over 243,000 kilowatts per year!
The Aunt Sparkie’s Team grows in greenhouses to allow them to harness the power and quality of natural sunlight for their plants. Their plants do extremely well in the natural sunlight without expending energy battling the tother natural elements that an outdoor grow has. When sunlight is not available to us on cloudy days or short winter days, they do supplement with artificial lights in order to keep our habitat at optimal levels. Growing with the sun allows them to reduce their electric usage compared to an indoor grow.
REUSING SOIL & PLANT MATERIAL
Saving an average of 7 tons in soil waste each year.
Aunt Sparkie’s soil is an advanced eco system filled with micro and macro organisms that constantly regenerate the soil to its optimal level. Unlike most grows, the team never throws out our soil after a harvest. Instead, they re-use the same soil harvest after harvest giving careful attention to its composition and needs. The soil gets better and better as time goes on.
recyclable glass jars & reclaimed ocean plastic packaging
Preventing over 240 lbs of plastic from entering our communities and landfills each year & Removing over 400 lbs of plastic waste from our oceans each year.
Aunt Sparkie’s packages their cannabis in Miron violet glass. These jars block the harmful light spectrums while letting in the beneficial UV rays. This greatly extends the shelf life of our flower. We chose to package in glass because it is more environmentally responsible, and it is a recyclable material.
organically protecting our waterways
Protecting Michigan’s Great Lakes by avoiding waste water run-off and watershed contamination.
Aunt Sparkie’s is a Certified Kind Organic facility. They use only certified organic supplements to amend their soil and feed their plants along with fresh water. Unlike a lot of other commercial grows, they do not have any waste water run-off. All of their amendments stay in the soil where they belong preventing any contamination of our local watershed.
The team chose to grow organically because it creates a healthier end product for the customers and it is the most ecologically responsible way to grow cannabis.
reducing their carbon footprint
Saving over 140 lbs of plastic from going in our landfills each year.
The pots the team uses for their mother & veg plants are unique to the industry. They use re-usable cloth pots for all of their growth stages. When the babies are ready to go into veg they are housed in 2 gallon Grassroots pots that have Velcro siding. When it is time to move to the flowering stage, the team simply opens the pot using the Velcro and transplant them into the large greenhouse beds. We then re-fill the pots with soil from our greenhouse to be used by the next set of clones.
