The Jazz Club began as a small operation serving only close friends and family members before deciding to expand based on initial positive feedback they received. In 2015, they became a full-scale medical provisioning center for familiar and new patients alike throughout the Detroit community. They have continued with that model ever since, even through rocky times in the Michigan cannabis scene.

The building itself used to be an actual jazz club as well as a Detroit landmark, and The Jazz Club team believes that through their operation, the live music and great atmosphere of years past is kept alive; in fact, they pride themselves on staying true to the club’s original roots. The shop is welcoming to all customers and patients, and the volunteers here take pride in providing an unusually expansive selection of high-quality medication, with myriad strains, edibles, and concentrates on hand to help ease a variety of conditions.

When visiting The Jazz Club, don’t be shy about asking for recommendations. Molly, a volunteer at the shop, is among the numerous representatives who are always happy to help: after all, she says, “Knowing that I can help a patient with his or her serious medical condition is what motivates me!”

In addition to The Jazz Club’s expansive selection of flower and infused products, be sure to browse the wide array of smoking, vaping, and dabbing accessories. And after picking up some fresh product, fight the munchies at Scotty Simpson’s Fish & Chips, another Detroit landmark just a few blocks away.

What inspires you to come to work? “Seeing the look on a patient’s face knowing that we can provide the best medication with a great atmosphere is priceless.”

Advice to first-time visitors: “Don’t be afraid. Medical provisioning centers are not ‘weed spots.’ The Jazz Club is a professional alternative to medicine.”
