The cannabis brand founded by former Detroit Lions players Calvin Johnson and Rob Sims, Primitiv, has opened its flagship dispensary in Niles, Michigan.

The dispensary is located at 1286 S. 11th St. and won’t just sell its own cannabis products, but also a wide variety of other Michigan-based cannabis brands.

“This is a project of passion that we have been cultivating for the past several years and we couldn’t be more excited to see it become a reality,” Sims said in a press release. “We’ve made Michigan our home and have been blessed by the support we have received from our community and feel this is a great way to further plant roots and give back to the communities that have embraced us.”

Primitiv is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m, Tuesdays through Sundays.
