Press Release

Gastown residents are welcoming a new cannabis retailer to the neighborhood with the much-anticipated opening of Marigolds Cannabis at 231 Abbott St. The destination retail space has been thoughtfully cultivated by Christina Michael, a Vancouver-based serial entrepreneur with a personal connection to cannabis.

After a good friend was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Christina promised to learn as much as she could about cannabis and find a way to help people consume legal cannabis responsibly. She has become a vocal advocate for the personal right to integrate cannabis and CBD into daily life. Marigolds Cannabis is a reflection of Ms. Michael's extensive professional background. Her consultancy, Full Circle Enterprises Inc., has given her the opportunity to work in cannabis on large-scale corporate projects, start-ups, retailers and non-profits.

"Marigolds Cannabis is offering consumers a best-in-class retail experience, no matter what their relationship with cannabis. It is so important to me to integrate my personal values of inclusion, collaboration, education and community into the cannabis retail landscape." Michaels emphasizes. "We have brought together a team of seasoned retail and customer service professionals who know that, whether you're selling cannabis, clothing, or coffee, you need to understand your customer and meet them where they are."

Michaels is confident that Marigolds Cannabis will be a cannabis destination for Vancouverites. "Every decision we have made, from licensing, to branding, to product selection and offerings has been with intent." She adds. "We have only just begun to empower cannabis consumers, and Marigolds is rooted in a new era of emerging cannabis culture. Every customer, every team member, is a Friend of Flower."

Marigolds Gastown location opens October 1st at 10 AM. Their second location, at 829 Davie Street in Vancouver, is slated to open in early 2021.
