Frequently Asked Questions
I'm obviously over 21, why do I need to show my ID?
This industry is new and we have to be careful to set an example and not sell to anyone under 21. It’s best not to take a chance or leave it up to anyone’s judgement as to how old you are. Everyone is treated equally, no matter your age. We’ll check your ID at the door so you can shop, then again when you make a purchase just to be sure. Selling cannabis to a minor is a felony and we want to keep our employees safe from that too. We’re lucky to be able to have such a range of choices in the nice shops around WA and all we have to do is prove that we’re over 21. Pretty cool.
How much can I buy?
You can buy up to the limit of personal possession, which is 28g Flower, 7g Extract concentrates, 16oz Edibles and 72oz Liquids. Medical patients with a current authorization card allowed 3x that limit.
When will you be getting some of that awesome Humboldt weed or authentic Moroccan hash?
At this time, everything in Washington retail shops is grown and processed in Washington by vendors with an approved i-502 license. We are not allowed to source anything from out of state.
Can I bring this back to my home state?
No. Even if marijuana is legal in that state, cannabis purchased in Washington needs to stay in Washington. DO NOT FLY with cannabis products, even within the state.
Can I smoke at the park?
Washington state law prohibits consumption in public. Especially avoid federal property. Currently, smoking lounges are not allowed
Can I smoke in my car?
You can get a DUI, just the same as you could with any controlled substance. A blood test will confirm if you are over 5 nanograms of THC in your system at the time. We staple your bag shut so it can travel safely in your car without an officer thinking you are consuming it while you drive. We recommend that you keep it in your trunk.
Do you serve medical patients?
Yes we do! Please see the “medical” tab on our website for more info.
Do you guys take credit or debit cards?
No, we're currently cash only and we have an ATM on site. Until cannabis is “rescheduled,” big banks will not likely provide services to us.
Why do other retail shops take credit cards?
Some places take credit/debit cards and treat it like an ATM withdrawal; they still have to charge a processing fee. Other places may not be honest with their bank about the nature of their business... their account will get shut down when their bank finds out.
Do you have a loyalty program?
Yes, if you sign up for our “Reefer Rewards” at the kiosk in our shop, you can receive 20% off of a regularly priced single item up to 7g size. All you have to do is check in 10 times.
How do I find out about sales at the shop?
We post our sales on this Website, Leafly, Weedmaps and we publish an ad in The Stranger each week. You can sign up for a message through our Reefer Rewards program too.
What is your return policy?
We only take returns on items with an electronic defect, including vape cartridges and batteries. These items must include the original packaging AND receipt within two weeks of purchase. Seriously, you need the receipt and packaging. It might not be broken though. There are many ways to trouble shoot your vape cart, so please bring it in along with the battery you are using and we will try to diagnose the problem. Unfortunately, our agreement with PAX does not allow us to take returns in the shop. You must contact them directly.
Are you pet friendly?
Definitely! We’ve welcomed dogs, cats, lizards, parakeets, boa constrictors and a tiny monkey in here. Haven’t seen a goldfish yet… Please keep your pet on a leash so all customers feel comfortable when shopping
Why is that strain of flower more expensive than this other one?
The more expensive flower tends to be grown indoors, so the cultivator has more overhead like electricity costs that they have to include in their pricing. Depending on where the business is located, their rent might also be higher if they are in-city vs a rural area.
So, why is the same brand cheaper at this other retailer then?
Good question. If you're sure it's the same brand, it may be that cultivator gave them a different deal. Sometimes we purchase in smaller amounts to ensure it's a quality product that our regular customers will enjoy, and we're often able to drop the price as we purchase larger amounts of it in the future.
When will my favorite strain of flower be coming back?
We try to have a fairly consistent product line up, but we’re working with agriculture here, and there are a ton of variables. Growers like to showcase all kinds of flower, but may not have enough space to grow all types at the same time. If you like the particular grower, then you’ll probably like some other strain they’ve got ready at the time. Or have fun trying a new brand! There’s so much good stuff out there…
Can you show me the highest THC products?
Well, we could, but you’d be missing out on some really great stuff if that was your only criteria. Lab testing has come under some heavy scrutiny lately. It’s not the most consistent and the THC doesn’t really tell you anything about the overall effect you will get from smoking a particular product. We recommend talking to your budtender as they, or one of their colleagues, have smoked just about everything we carry in the shop.
I don't smoke, so is there something else I would enjoy?
Definitely! We have tinctures, capsules, edibles, drinks and topicals...oh yah, and personal lubricant.
What's with the old harvest date on my weed?
Well cured and stored cannabis holds it’s “freshness” for over a year easily. We have a pretty short growing season in Washington State. It gets cold here! Outdoor harvest typically happens in the late summer & fall. There really isn’t a winter or spring season for outdoor weed. Don’t judge a package by it’s date (read our blog article entitled "How Important is the Harvest Date on Your Weed?"). Products are held in a controlled storage environment and then packaged to order over the winter, spring & summer months.
10mg edible? How do you equate that to smoking?
Uhh, I say it's like 2 or 3 puffs of a joint; for some people that's very intoxicating, but not for others. Edibles can take up to 3 hours for full effect. If you’re new to edibles, start with 5mg and see what happens. Sometimes it’s slower to take effect on a full stomach.
What's a "concentrate?"
It's essentially hash oil; it's just produced using more modern extraction methods like CO2, butane, or even just using heat and pressure. Check out our blog entry about different concentrates. There’s much to learn with all of the innovation going on right now!
What the heck is "Clean Green Certified?"
Since cannabis is still federally illegal, there is no "organic" designation available to farmers in our state. This is where the "Clean Green Certification comes in. They certify farms, processors and retail outlets with the same standards. Guess what? We're a certified store with many Clean Green brands. You can learn more here: https://www.cleangreencert.org/
