Colin Plant, once a local musician, opened Canni Hemp Co. in Walker’s Point in 2018. “I thought about my mom, my grandmother and members of my family, and didn’t want them to walk into a store with paraphernalia,” says Plant. As a result, Canni Hemp Co. bucks that stereotypical look and is instead designed like a contemporary luxury boutique.
Under the Canni line, Plant partners with two Wisconsin-based processers to make CBD tinctures and topicals. He also carries CBD and cannabis products from other Wisconsin-based retailers. “It’s important that we’re looking to our community of growers, cultivators and processors to stock our shelves,” Plant says. As a local musician, cannabis “assisted with my focus, inspiration and clarity. I want to be there for members of the community with a natural, holistic way to deal with some of these issues.”
Plant has many major changes in mind for Canni’s next year, including adding a rentable event space outside, which will host local markets and live music, along with Milwaukee’s first kava bar, brewing Hawaii-sourced kava as an alcohol alternative.
