Michigan owned, Michigan grown
We are fueled by the passion and drive to produce desirable products and stay true to the idea of building quality and precision into everything we do.
Our founders were medical caregivers in the early stages of the industry following the passage of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act in 2008. They were active advocates of early legislature and the recreational use statutes that laid the groundwork to provide safe, quality cannabis on a commercial level.
CEO and owner Sam Usman Jr saw an opportunity to help bring the industry into the mainstream and destigmatize cannabis consumption for everyday people. From the beginning, he envisioned a fast-growing company that would be rooted in Lansing pride and provide jobs to our community.
Pro Gro Process
We have 80+ strains at any given time. We choose strains based on yield, potency, and flavor profile. Plant hardiness, growth habits, and resistance to disease are all contributing factors to the choice of strain as well. We know we raise and harvest happy, healthy plants.
We’ve been acquiring our genetic library for over 7 years. We’ve come from the caregiver market and have taken care of our gene pool for a long time which has resulted in a library of 60+ strains. We know that all great cannabis plants start with great seeds. That’s why we chose to partner with some of the biggest names in the industry including Fletcher from Archive Seed Bank.
Many of our top strains come germinated directly from Fletcher including Secret Formula, Rocket Fuel, Borello, Rainbow Belts, and Cannabis Cup winner Moonbow #112.
Post-germination, the seeds develop into seedlings and after 2-3 weeks the young plants sprout their true five pointed cannabis leaves you know and love. From this stage, they are transported into the vegetation rooms.
We cultivate in 2 gallon pots in Pro Mix HPCC. Most of the commercial industry is cultivated in Rockwell cubes. Rockwell is known to give you some of the best and fastest plant growth. We chose our system because it gives us better terpenes and flavors than the Rockwell system.
Our efficient processes have allowed us to match the quality and fast plant growth of a Rockwell cube cultivation but with the increased terpenes and flavor of the Pro Mix HPCC system. Our system helps promote a biological base in the soil which gives us increased terpenes, THC and flavor.
When we first started, our plants spent 21-28 days in the vegetation rooms. We have decreased that time down to 18 days and are on track to get it down to 16. During this time, the increase in lighting and change in nutrients explodes the growth of the plants. After the vegetation stage, our plants go into a flowering room for 63 days.
We pride ourselves on an even canopy in the flowering stage. We start promoting this as soon as the plants come in from the vegetation cycle by bending them. An even canopy gives you even light distribution.
A general rule is the tallest stem is going to get the most nutrients. Since we keep all the stems at the same height, we achieve equal nutrients to all of the plants. After the fifth day in the flowering room, we come in and strip the plant high and tight. This removes low hanging plant material that will hinder the rest of the plant from getting the most nutrients as possible. From day 5 to day 21 the plant stretches as plants always do.
We find that large growth from day 5 to 21 grows in as good quality plant material. If we stretch too late or early we miss out on material or too much unusable material. Between day 21 and day 50 the buds will set and increase in volume and the buds will become dense. Between days 50 and 63 the buds ripen. Then we harvest.
Our plants get sent to the processing team. They will remove any extra non-usable material, deleaf the plant, which is any sugar leaves or leaves that do not have any trichome development. We cut the tops of the plants off and consider those our A grade buds. We use them exclusively for retail flower. The rest get made into prerolls, concentrates and lower shelf 1/8ths. Those A grade buds are the largest and highest in THC, terpenes and overall quality.
From our state-of-the-art grow facility to our expanding list of wholesale partners and provisioning centers, Pro Gro is dedicated to bringing precision-crafted cannabis to the Michigan market. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, creating boutique-quality cannabis on a grand scale, and striving to create Michigan’s premier provisioning centers, dedicated to creating a safe environment for learning about how cannabis can help you live your life to the fullest.
Pro Gro produces over 60 strains of Michigan precision crafted cannabis. By taste, THC and effect, you can experience the precision crafted Pro Gro cannabis.
