Every time you call BREEZE Provisioning Center, at 1-833-9-BREEZE (1-833-927-3393), for product questions, order concerns, or store information, you’ll be greeted by a cannabis specialist from The BREEZE Care Center.

Now that recreational cannabis is legal across the state of Michigan, it’s important to know what to look for in a reputable, quality cannabis retailer. BREEZE Provisioning is committed to removing the stigma surrounding cannabis, a plant with a long, rich history of use. And they go above and beyond to provide education for customers and training for their team members.

Here’s a look at five ways BREEZE makes buying recreational cannabis, well, a breeze! And why BREEZE was voted the 2020 Detroit Free Press Best of the Best Cannabis Store AND the 2020 Detroit Free Press Best of the Best CBD Store.

1. You can talk to a real, live person — whether you’re a customer or simply curious.

Every time you call BREEZE Provisioning Center, at 1-833-9-BREEZE (1-833-927-3393), for product questions, order concerns, or store information, you’ll be greeted by a cannabis specialist from The BREEZE Care Center.    

The trained team members can explain the difference between various cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) and general cannabis terms such as flower, tinctures, topicals, and concentrates. The specialists can help explain how certain products are made, what they are best used for, and how to use them so consumers can make informed decisions about the products they are considering. For seasoned users, the team is equipped to talk about the newest and most popular products and trends in the industry.     

Additionally, they are available to help with more logistic concerns such as the legality of recreational cannabis, the taxes associated with orders, and what is required to make a purchase. This information can also be found on their BREEZE FAQs section of their website.     

2. Their team is there to educate and put people at ease.

All of the cannabis specialists for team BREEZE are highly trained in both customer service and cannabis education. Because cannabis information can be confusing, contradictory, and complicated, The Care Center aims to clarify and simplify this information to help build a more educated cannabis community. By focusing on education, BREEZE ensures consumers are getting the knowledge they need to choose the product best for their needs.      

One of the company’s goals is to be a go-to source for safe, reliable information about cannabis to dispel myths and misinformation. So, if someone isn’t ready to buy recreational cannabis but maybe has a question about how to go about purchasing or using it, they can call The Care Center. As the team is not medically certified, they rely on current cannabis data and research, vendor information, customer testimonials, and personal experience to make safe recommendations.  

In addition to discreet home delivery from their Hazel Park location, they also offer convenient curbside pickup with safety practices in place at both their Hazel Park and Battle Creek locations.

3. BREEZE employees receive training far beyond what’s required.

In Michigan, there are no required certification programs for industry retailers. However, BREEZE utilizes industry certifiers, like Green Flower, to offer certifications for their team members. This is part of their commitment as a leader in Michigan’s recreational cannabis market. Along with in-store product and customer service training, employees go through nearly 40 hours of cannabis courses to ensure that every customer receives accurate, trustworthy recommendations.    

Even though this is not a legal requirement in the state, the BREEZE team believes in the importance of educating their team to help bridge knowledge gaps in the general public — and open minds to this beneficial plant. 

4. Their delivery minimum is only $20, which makes the service more affordable.

BREEZE understands that times are tough for a lot of folks — and if they are new to recreational cannabis, they usually want to start with a modest amount. That’s why they set their delivery minimum at only $20. This amount is lower than many other cannabis retailers, but their delivery radius is wide. From their Hazel Park location, to the east, they deliver as far as Warren. They also deliver as far north as Utica and, to the east, St. Clair Shores, and they are continuing to expand the delivery area. Their Battle Creek location at 1770 E. Columbia Avenue has recently opened with curbside pick-up only but will include delivery in the near future. All customers must be 21 years of age or older and present a valid or expired photo government-issued ID to purchase at BREEZE.

5. During COVID-19, they keep safety and health at the forefront.

To keep customers and their team healthy and safe, the storefronts are closed to the public right now. However, the cares line and website offer all the information that customers or curious potential buyers might need. In addition to discreet home delivery from their Hazel Park location, they also offer convenient curbside pickup with safety practices in place at both their Hazel Park and Battle Creek locations.
