Pat Schmitke, owner of Morris Bigway Grocery Store, saw the benefits cannabis had to offer and decided to take the leap into the cannabis industry. It wasn’t long before Rasta Lady Cannabis Shop was born (now Rural Buds – Morris). Rasta Lady Cannabis Shop in Morris, Manitoba opened in January of 2021. While it is a very small store located in an ATCO trailer, it offers a unique environment which the community loves. A few short months later in May 2021, Rural Buds opened another location in Carman, Manitoba, being the first Cannabis Shop in town. The beautiful storefront drew in alot of positive attention which led to the third location opening in July 2021 in St. Pierre-Jolys.
