A Michigan cannabis company is adding beeswax tips that contain wildflower seeds to their pre-rolls, so when it is discarded it can plant a flower, according to a FOX 2 report. Jeff Dotson, president of Golden Shores Cannabis Co., said the seeds contained in the tip are for a “very hearty plant” that will “grow in almost any kind of soil.”
It is the only Michigan company to include wildflower seeds in the tips of their pre-roll.
Jimmie Caudill, the director of sales at The REEF in Detroit, one of several locations that sell Golden Shores’ products, said the product could help prevent waste caused by discarded tips.
“There’s so much waste within our industry. We’re trying to stop how much waste there is, so with this eco-friendly tip it’s going to help change that stigma.” – Caudill to FOX 2
Golden Shores products are also available at dispensaries in Adrian, Ann Arbor, Cheboygan, Clio, Grand Rapids, Sturgis, Hazel Park, Traverse City, and Wayne, according to the company’s website.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conversation Service says that wildflowers “provide critical habitat for pollinators, beneficial insects and wildlife, which is important for ecosystem function and pollination.”
“Wildflowers can improve soil health, prevent erosion, improve water quality, increase yields and enhance forage conditions for livestock,” the agency said.
