In this new partnership, Green Oasis Dispensary owner, Anthony Butler, will allow Flesh to “further cultivate and distribute the strain and its seeds.” He further states:
We worked closely together to figure out what we wanted out of the medication, it’s the best of the best.”
Flesh hopes the new strain is helpful to patients in need and wants to be a part of the shift in the way weed in perceived. In conjunction with developing the new marijuana, Flesh is working to bring his new “product” to California, Washington and Colorado. Medical marijuana became legal in Michigan in 2008.
