A new all-star brand debuts announced Players Only offers an array of strains, cannabis oil cartridges, pre-rolls, vape, as well as sports recovery and performance products. Players Only also offers branded apparel and footwear.
Last March, TerrAscend secured exclusive retail rights to player-exclusive products in Michigan through its acquisition of Gage Growth Corp, paving the way for the brand to drop.
“Players Only is more than just a cannabis brand, it’s a lifestyle brand,” said Webber. “We truly have a unique opportunity to change the cannabis narrative, empower emerging entrepreneurs and set new standards in this growing industry. We are excited to begin the process of bringing meaningful economic change to our community. Shout out to TerrAscend and Gage and families in Michigan.We love Cookies and Berner so much, let’s go!”
Last October, Webber announced a cannabis facility in Detroit complete with grow facility, pharmacy and consumer lounge. The 180,000-square-foot player-only facility has been named the Weber Wellness Compound.
Initial strains to roll out include C4, Time Out, GOAT’s Milk, and Non-Laters and Whipped Cherries. After that, the brand plans to roll out additional strains such as Blueberry Hotcakes and Ray Jackson’s Black His Socks in the coming weeks. According to reviewers, C4 can give off a hussy appeal like Afghani, while GOAT’s Milk leans more sativa with balanced amounts of THC and CBD. It’s the flavor you’d expect.
Lavetta Willis, co-founder and president of Players Only, said: “The opportunity to bring our legacy lineage and expertise to our Players Only platform and menus furthers our goal of inspiring black entrepreneurs who have been building brands and intellectual property for decades. increase.”
