Lume Cannabis Co. opened a store selling cannabis products for adult-use customers in Sault Ste. Marie on Friday, Jan. 15. The store, located at 246 3 Mile Rd in Sault Ste. Marie, is Lume’s 14th store in Michigan.

“At Lume, we pride ourselves on offering an unmatched variety of safe and high-quality THC and CBD products and we are excited to introduce our brand and show cannabis in a new light to adult-use consumers in Sault Ste. Marie and the eastern Upper Peninsula,” said Doug Hellyar, president and COO of Lume. “We thank the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians for welcoming us with open arms and look forward to joining this vibrant community and serving the cannabis needs of the entire Sault Ste. Marie community and beyond.”

The store will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. All first-time customers will receive a 10% discount and a free 0.7g pre-roll.

“We partnered with Lume Cannabis Company because they have the expertise, passion, values and philosophy to expand economic development on tribal land and bring a safe, high-quality product to our community,” said Joel Schultz, Sault Tribe Economic Development executive director. “The opening of the Sault Ste. Marie store is just the first of many exciting announcements that come with this historic partnership.”

Over the summer, Lume and the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe announced the company is planning to open five additional stores on tribal land this year and next year.
