As some budtenders will happily tell you, Hashtag's buyers hi, Emma! Unlike glass jars and tubs, those plasticky packages cannot be recycled and instead end up in landfills. Hashtag gets major points in my book for trying to limit their carbon footprint. They also have a lot of product on offer, ranging from premium spliffs and blueberry-flavored vape pens to cannabis-infused tomato soup mixes.
However, their budtenders really won my heart when I saw how willing they were to talk with people who used prescription anti-anxiety medications or antidepressants. It wasn't a matter of blindly pointing at a strain in Hashtag's endless menu; it was taking the time to personalize a selection that worked for each customer.
For anxious messes like me, a budtender named Dustin recommended his top pick: Quincy Green's Tinkerbell's Revenge sativa. And man , did that do the trick. People just call it "Oz," but the completely pleasing, attractive, and well-designed pot shop in Fremont is actually called Oz. The lovely storeowners tried to name it just Oz, as in The Wizard of , but were told by authorities that the association would be too much of a lure for innocent children.
It feels a little like the Babeland of pot shops. You know, like a fun, actually boutique retail store, where the displays are prepared with care by somebody with a design background, rather than a dank place recently vacated by a dude in a robe and his lizard. Rather than a diner-style plastic menu, all the varieties of oils, joints, flower, and what-have-you are listed in color-coded rows of clipboards covering on the walls like a large-scale marijuana periodic table.
On each of the clipboards, there's a full description of the product, from effects Sour Tsunami brings on the "relaxed, happy, uplifting, sleepy" times to THC content which the owners would like to remind you does not really mean that much in terms of affecting your experience, and is no way to go about buying your pot. The periodic table is good reading. It's also next to an Episcopal bookstore—"An independent, ecumenical place!
It is not a sin, for instance, to pretend that Oz. American Mary has a lot of good things going for them.
For brain stimulation, American Mary is next door to the Comics Dungeon and two blocks down from Open Books one of the only poetry-only bookstores in the United States.
As for the shop itself, they pack a surprising amount of pot into a relatively small space. The menu is expansive, spanning a variety of producers and price points. Everyone should take their canna-curious mom to the Partakery. The pocket-size store at the intersection of Ballard and Phinney Ridge sits unassumingly within a cluster of small bars, restaurants, and tattoo shops.
Seriously, from the outside, this place could be mistaken for a tiny tea parlor. Who visits this shop most often?
We have a lot of people coming back to cannabis—retirees, people who couldn't smoke because of work," says Andy Johnson, who co-owns the shop. Inside, you'll find what may be the best edibles selection north of the Ship Canal. The Partakery also offers up your standard variety of flower, glass pieces, and vape pens, too.
If you're on foot and sneaky and you take a smoke or snack break outside, you have some options for how you can spend the rest of your stoned evening: Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong. Have a Heart Greenwood. Have a Heart kind of looks like an auto repair shop from the outside, thanks to its green-and-white-checkered building.
Once you're inside, though, it's a different story. This rec store immediately reminded me of a clean Las Vegas casino, with its blindingly bright lights lining squeaky-clean glass displays and TV menus mounted into the wall.
Of the recreational stores I visited in Greenwood, Have a Heart was by far the most packed. During the half hour I spent perusing the shop, a cast of characters waltzed through the door: The budtenders were friendly, possibly even overeager. When prompted, another budtender eagerly explained to me how dabbing works. All the while, a redheaded woman swiped a feather duster across the already immaculately clean counter. If you want to feel taken care of or need someone to hold your hand as you figure out which strain to try today, this is the place to go.
This northern Greenwood joint has the cutest damn name. They also have the best indoor artwork of any of the shops I've visited. Upon walking in, one's eye is automatically drawn to Trees' chalk mural, which depicts Seattle's skyline and the Fremont Troll and Pink Elephant Car Wash sign both smoking blunts. The kitsch makes the space a bit warmer, and I have to give them points for creativity.
The shop's menu, like so many other stores, is massive. Budtenders were attentive and eager to answer questions about products or even frustrating state-mandated packaging laws. When I ask one of the budtenders behind the counter to show me a unique product they carry, she pulls a packet of six pre-rolled joints from a display in the corner. Not going to lie, this place is kind of bro-tastic. Or at least it felt that way when I walked in the other day and there was a football game playing on the TV behind the counter.
The budtender looked like he might be a skater. He wasn't watching the game. But if you've always wanted a place where you can watch the game while buying your weed, well, look no further. You may know the place from their backlit marquee outside, which lights up the night for a quarter-block around the store. Inside, the main counter showcases colorful glass-blown pipes, shiny grinders, and vape pen pieces.
Other counters featured shelves of concentrates, waxes, shatter, cannabis-infused hard candies, and packaged bags of shake. Before visiting Greenworks, I had only ever seen bags of shake in definitely-not-legal gallon-sized Ziploc containers. Suprisingly, going against the sporty vibe, Greenworks offers something I'd never seen before: The consultant is available Thursdays and Fridays to talk with former green card patients still navigating the recreational cannabis system. Their willingness to work with the customers who need it the most is impressive.
Stash unofficially bills itself as the "Nordstrom of pot shops. The budtenders, many of whom are transplants from more traditional service-industry jobs, all seem genuinely happy to be here, and genuinely excited about pot. I'm not sure if employees are banned from leaning on things as they are at Nordstrom , and I'm quite sure they can't legally accept returns as Nordstrom very famously does , but it's a deluxe experience regardless. You're sure to enjoy, as their website promises, "an elegant, welcoming environment to purchase the finest quality cannabis products.
Stash is also quite convenient to many of Ballard's cultural and culinary activities. If you were looking to, say, smoke an ultra-heady sativa and go out for some of Renee Erickson's thought-provoking food, Stash is a mere three blocks from the Walrus and the Carpenter.
You can enjoy Mox's lovely Northwest cafe fare and local beer all while settling the shit out of Catan or getting betrayed at the House on the Hill, thanks to Card Kingdom's generous game library. At Herbs House, "we have everything, and we have a lot of everything," one of the friendly guys behind the counter tells me. He also lets me know the place recently got a little bit of a face-lift, and he points up to the high walls above the cash registers.
There's a mural, by local artist Joshua Boulet, of a big red dragon getting high. Near him, a sweet Sasquatch fingers a fat joint. Herbs House is in a house. It has a fireplace without fire , and a great big mirror above the mantel where a black sign advertises the daily specials in neon marker. Herbs House is across the street from the Ballard Goodwill, and I cannot decide whether it would be better to get stoned before going to this epic Goodwill, or after.
Before pot was legalized, Herbs House was medicinal-only. In it became the full-service recreational store it is now. On a Thursday afternoon, there was a fast-moving line. The menu is a flip-book of neonish-green pages think the color of Martians that's extensive.
It's a lot like a menu in a roadside restaurant that's got every dish you could want. Here, there are pot chocolates and cookies and sweets like peanut butter cups, of course, but also pot sodas, pot coffee, pot caramels, and pot rice crackers. Local artists can put up their work for three months; to get in, they put their names on a waiting list. Currently up are stenciled images on canvas of pop-culture pot lovers like Bill Murray, looking cool, by Court Hoffman.
Who knew there were this many local marijuana-related magazines? They are here for the taking. As far as equipment goes, there isn't much, but there is at least one glass bong so marvelously elaborate that it must be from Tatooine. Ocean Greens feels like an old-school cocktail bar, thanks to its dark wood countertops.
But rather than sipping on manhattans while chatting with a curt bartender, customers can bide their time chatting with budtenders who will go through the shop's selection of pre-rolls, which are stashed in something that resembles an apothecary's cupboard or a library filing cabinet. Folks easily distracted by shiny things will likely busy themselves ogling the shop's wall of intricate glass pipes and bongs. Based on Ocean Greens' vast selection, made less stressful by their calming atmosphere, that doesn't seem like an exaggeration.
If you suddenly find you have the munchies or if you have a hankering for lunch before lighting up , Ocean Greens is conveniently located next to a Burgermaster, Central American eatery Tropicos Breeze, and Emerald City Smoothie. And if you're willing to walk another block, you can enjoy the wonder that is IHOP's all-you-can-eat pancakes.
Stash's second location in Lake City the original is in Ballard , framed with purple neon lights around the exterior, looks more like one of those nondescript sordid clubs where you can get a lap dance.
Inside, though, the atmosphere is mellow. Three big screens play Seahawks games while budtenders lean over the counter to say "hi. Yes, he is named after the author, and no, he hasn't read Ulysses: It's long and kind of boring. Since the owners come from a medical marijuana background, Stash tries to grow its community with pop-ups that offer industry information.
In terms of culture, they have sponsored local concerts at places like Tractor Tavern and Showbox. They have even invited a local nail salon to come in and give free manicures. Cannabis is the final part of their slogan because, Joyce explains, "We're in Washington and, well, you can find good cannabis everywhere. They are also one of a few stores that carry Leira Cannagars from Gold Leaf limited edition. The store has daily deals on flower, edibles, beverages, and concentrates that you can check out online from Leafly and Weed Maps before coming into the store.
Stepping inside of Fweedom Cannabis feels confusing at first: Where's the store, dude? The wraparound beige couch, fish tank, and scattered magazines on a coffee table feel like a doctor's office waiting room.
But that's only because Fweedom used to be a medical dispensary. After waiting, you are ushered into one of two smaller rooms featuring the products. The layout, says salesperson Farin Nishitani, gives customers "a little bit more of a private experience," where both patients and recreational users can have a one-on-one interaction with staff. If you are just looking for something to put your weed in, a separate room features papers, stash boxes, preserve jars, and glass bongs and bowls.
In case you're in a hurry and want to skip the chitchat, you can place an order with "the Doober Machine" in the front room. The machine makes a bong-rip noise not kidding to alert the staff in other rooms to fulfill your order immediately. Fweedom carries products from high-quality medical growers along with recreational producer-processers as well.
One of their favorites is Orum, a small farm that went from a medical to a recreational grower. After your trip to Fweedom, perfect your golf game at Puetz Golf Superstore right across the street, and try the spicy stew at Gojo Ethiopian restaurant just up the street. This sign makes it easy to miss the RAD mural of Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Lee sharing a phat ol' jay on the front of the building did that ever happen in real life?
Seattle Tonics, a play on words and a nod to the former Seattle basketball team, feels like a place you go to ease the pain of last night's dance party. The open layout and the walking menu help when you just want to browse. On a Sunday afternoon, two budtenders are almost not enough to keep up with the busy line of folks coming in and out of the store.
Plastic containers behind the counters filled with product give the place an almost Amazon-fulfillment-warehouse kind of feel. Diesel variant NYPD is a favorite: If you're looking to find some great eats along with your bud, cannabis boutique Dockside is the place to go.
The store is nestled in a strip mall along with a Mexican grocery store, Ethiopian food shop Harambe Market, and a Chinese and a Korean restaurant. Sustainability is the mantra of Dockside, in everything from the upcycled, wood-palleted walls to the array of flower from local, organic growers. And they've got the education to prove it: Dockside started as a co-op in Fremont, founded by a group of people who got business degrees in sustainability at the Bainbridge Graduate Institute.
According to employee Shaun Magruder, Dockside strives to find producers that have similar values of sustainability, like Quincy Green whose buds come in compostable packaging and include joint supplies in each box , and Emerald Jane's a tiny three-tier grower with quality strains. Shoreline is Dockside's second location the original is in Sodo , and they are looking to settle into their new digs by making themselves at home among its residents. Let us say that you are stranded in Shoreline, the northern kingdom that should be called Land of the Skyscraper Trees, with your extended family, which huddles in a house in the shadow of an evergreen every year.
It is Thanksgiving morning and you are in need of a joint as big as the tree. There is very good news. When it is a holiday—any holiday—you can get yourself a "giga joint," or a half ounce of weed pre-rolled for your fatty convenience, at Recreational Cannabis on 15th Avenue Northeast. That is the meaning of " An employee told me: The person who told me this recently at the store was wearing a Dory the fish costume where her face was the fish mouth.
Metallica was playing over the speakers. It was a few days before Halloween hence Dory, though every Friday is casual Friday, when the workers don't have to wear the usual uniforms , and the holiday sales had already begun. Every day there are also early bird 9 am to noon and happy hour 4 to 6 pm specials, when you can buy one thing and get another at 25 percent off. This store is medically endorsed, so they make the state-issued cards here. And it should not go without saying that this is the place to go if you would like to find a glass pipe whose business end is the head of South Park 's Butters.
Indeed, their welcoming, inviting atmosphere, with colorful mosaic pillars, natural light, and even an acoustic ceiling designed to minimize reverb, is meant to appeal to both newbies and seasoned cannabis veterans alike. Although geared toward recreational users, Herb n also seeks a patient client base by always having a certified medical marijuana consultant on the premises. They're also starting to issue laminated medical marijuana cards if you bring in your cannabis recommendation.
They've got a sales special every weekend along with "value eighths" and "dimes of the day," as well as a Reefer Rewards digital punch-card system because you'll lose that card, you stoner that offers 20 percent off every 10th visit.
Formerly Greenside Medical of Lake City, this recently remodeled store is smaller than most, but that doesn't seem to affect the selection: They've got everything from flower to pre-rolls, edibles, concentrates, and more crammed into their tight quarters there's also a glass shop next door. The smaller size also allows for more conversation from the attentive budtenders there, although they're perfectly happy to let you browse quietly too.
The atmosphere at Greenside feels more like the tight-knit medical community of days past, leading one customer to exclaim, "Greenside is like Cheers! For all your sundry sexy tastes, there's an adult video store nearby, along with an erotic boutique and a couple of "gentlemen's" clubs: There's an ATM inside for cash, and a BP station across the street for gas, but please, bring your own ass.
Pre-rolls and cartridges are the best sellers here, according to Ciara Jones, a budtender at the store since July. They're open for long hours with some early-bird specials for customers who come in before 11 a. NiMBiN is named after a village and "rainbow culture in Australia that's been around hundreds of years," general manager Kim Gilmore told me.
It was his aunt actually who suggested" the name NiMBiN. The correct way to write it out is in all-caps letters, except for each i. They're supposed to be lower-case so they look like joints. What sets NiMBiN apart from other stores? The store also has a "wake and bake special" from 8 to 10 am every day: And if you join the store's rewards program, every tenth visit you get 10 percent off. Seven employees have medical marijuana expertise. Gilmore said she developed a passion for the medical applications of cannabis after her husband's cancer treatments rendered him permanently disabled.
No surprise, given their prices, NiMBiN is popular: They have about customers a day, according to Gilmore. They also often have a Nacho Average Food Truck parked outside. Clutch Cannabis is located across the street from the Renton Municipal Airport, a stone's throw from the red, purple, and gold tails of Southwest Airlines planes. We get customers from all over the world.
Clutch Cannabis is a sponsor of the Stranger Genius Awards, so I was familiar with the place by name, but I had never been down to the shop until recently. As for more accessible products—flower, edibles, sodas, candies—they have all that stuff, too. It comes in a glass jar and has a tiger on the label. It's the bee's knees. Another budtender walked by and, just from the description he overheard, guessed, "Is that Crouching?
Wright smiled and looked back at me, saying, "Everyone here loves Crouching. Origins Recreational, with its clean hardwood floors and built-in cabinetry, feels like the living room of a really wealthy Pacific Northwest hippie.
The hippie that was growing organic weed in the s and just happened to buy some Starbucks stock, so now they have a big house in West Seattle with a view and tons of beautiful organic cannabis. Jon Sherman and Andrew Cornwall, the owners of Origins, care as much about cannabis as any hippie I've ever met. They are unhappy with how the state inspects cannabis—they don't trust the pesticide checks, they don't trust many of the state-approved testing labs, and without the federal government's involvement, there is no way to certify a farm is organic.
So, Sherman and Cornwall created their own certification system: To become Origins Certified, which is required in order for a product to be sold at their sleek West Seattle shop, a supplier's garden must: That is a lot, especially considering many retailers base their purchasing decisions on a spreadsheet of prices and THC readings.
If you've ever wanted a more personal approach to finding the right cannabis for you, then you should head to West Seattle. The staff at Origins Recreation loves to talk and educate their customers on cannabis. West Seattle Marijuana Store. The West Seattle Marijuana Store is located along a busy street in the middle of a bunch of mechanic shops that look like they're in various states of out-of-business.
But walk under the green awnings of this white building and everything turns very chill, thanks to some of the friendliest budtenders in town. Big-screen TVs sit between black shelves, everything is clean, and an old-fashioned illustrated map of Seattle hangs on the wall.
But without the protestors outside. Also, the staff won't hurry you out the door like they sometimes do at Ike's. One budtender mentioned having been a happy customer for six months before applying to work here. Ken, a manager who checked my ID at the front door, said they used to get a lot of cannabis tourists coming straight from the airport. That's slowed down, but now their prices and service are gaining them a following from West Seattle locals. Bud Nation is in an unassuming brick-fronted building right in the heart of White Center's 16th Avenue strip.
The high-ceilinged space has a glass shop on one side, a dispensary on the other, and the ambience of a medical supply store. A manager told me they try to hire a local and diverse staff, too. However, the best part of Bud Nation is not what's inside, but what's outside on 16th. Just next door is Rat City Records—which has two rooms of vinyl, music gear, and antiques. That will easily consume an hour of your stoned time.

There was a selection of sugar waxes good for "twaxing" joints, I was told , in a ton of flavor profiles. Phat Panda 12th Man Down is the brand of choice.
As the very first cannabis store to open on the Eastside they've been there since , Green-Theory has an excellent downtown Bellevue location. It's right by a bus stop. The store originally started as more of an upscale boutique, perhaps an attempt to lure in the more moneyed Bellevue types with their wads of bills and flashy cars. Now, they sell their large selection of flower, edibles, vapes and accessories at every price point, and in fact will price match anything you see at another store.
They also offer a 20 percent discount for medical patients and are working toward medical endorsements soon.
