With six locations around the Portland metro area including one at the airport, which is, interesting to say the least, this cannabis dispensary chain does it all. If you are in Portland, you are never far from a Chalice dispensary. The dispensary being reviewed is near the waterfront on Naito Parkway. There is not much signage out front so make sure you know where you’re going or you will easily walk right past it. The first room you walk into looks and kind of feels like a dentist’s waiting room, with a few outdated magazines on a table. Once you show your ID and wait, you will be ushered back to a beautiful space with lots of space and light wood, a bit like a cabin of cannabis! The budtenders here know their stuff but as this location always seems busy, you might feel a little pressure to make a selection or five and be on your way. They have some of the best topshelf cannabis in the area and their prices reflect this. That being said, if you want to treat yourself, this is the place to do it! If you are a newbie and have a lot of questions, they are very responsive to texts so it might be helpful to ask a few questions before you go. Chalice Farms offers delivery, pickup and instore shopping plus if you are part of their rewards program you will get plenty of opportunities for some seriously good cannabis discounts.
This small two store dispensary chain was the first in Oregon and it shows. With an eastside and westside location, both dispensaries are convenient to get to. The westside location is by far the most beautiful dispensary around. It is spacious and full of great product displays and has a very extensive and varied menu. Looking for a hard to find cannabis strain? Odds are Oregon’s Finest has it or can tell you when to expect it to be available. The budtenders here are qualified, knowledgeable and always friendly. Sadly this amazing location is currently only doing pickup or delivery but the eastside location still has instore service. The eastside location is of course spectacular but it doesn’t have that old school charm like the one on the westside does. Oregon’s finest, in addition to some fine cannabis products, has a very interactive website with a good loyalty program. Their topshelf products have the highest THC percentages in town. 33% THC for some of the hybrid strains with Emerald Apricot the clear winner from this dispensary. If you participate in their loyalty program, the fairly high prices won’t hurt quite as much.
This very hip dispensary is not what it appears to be from the outside. The neighborhood is a little rough so it’s best visited during the day but there is plenty of security around so you will not feel uncomfortable at all. From the sidewalk, as you cue up on your socially distanced spot to get in, you will feel a bit like you’re about to enter a nightclub. You’re not, it’s a bright and airy dispensary with the best deals on some seriously good weed. There is a lot of glass in this large space, not that kind of glass, although you can pick up a bong or pipe to be sure. With wide open display cases, and plenty of space to move around, take the time to look up while you’re there. There is some amazing art on the walls and it adds to the overall vibe of this dispensary. The budtenders are professional and go out of their way to make sure you are getting the right products for your cannabis needs. If you seem unsure, they ask questions, which is a unique experience. Most budtenders don’t ask questions, they answer them and you can tell they know the right questions to ask to make even a newbie feel like a qualified cannabis connoisseur. The prices are the best around for flower, carts and concentrates. The edibles are a little pricy but worth it! With a rewards program and discounts for veterans, seniors and students, Broadway Cannabis Market does it right with pickup and instore shopping available.
Located on Portland’s inner eastside, Jayne is a cannabis lover’s dream come true. A dispensary that not only has excellent cannabis options but is a beautiful and cool place to buy your bud. Their hours are 10 am to 9 pm seven days a week and currently they are open for in-store shopping, pickup and even offer delivery. In-store shopping is limited to only a few people in the budroom at a time to ensure social distancing but you won’t mind waiting as this dispensary is a true eclectic mix of décor that is quintessentially Portland! The outside of the building is decidedly modern but once inside , where you show your ID and wait to be ushered into the budroom is a mix of modern and old-school décor. Very inviting. The budroom itself is cool grey tones which serves to highlight why you came, for the cannabis. Jayne’s website is extremely easy to navigate and showcases how truly involved they are in the Portland community and the charitable causes that matter to the area. Budtender Ryan, who is super friendly but possesses ninja like flower analysis can help you make the best cannabis selections for your needs. Both the Platinum OGKB and Royal Wedding were exactly as he described in terms of what to expect and the benefits for both. This dispensary is more than worth the trip but if you prefer to pickup or have your cannabis delivered, Jayne’s got you covered there too.
While it’s unlikely one product has the power to prop up the entire US economy is these challenging times, the economic impact of cannabis sales can certainly go a long way towards making sure that states have a steady flow of cash as they struggle with empty coffers and so many people in need. If we look at the recent history of cannabis sales in the US last year and the continued high demand for cannabis so far in 2020, states who have wisely chosen to legalize medical marijuana or recreational, or both, have a distinct economic advantage over states who have yet to see the benefits of cannabis, not just for the state’s residents but for the economy in general.
If we look at the data from states who have has legalized cannabis during the entire 2019 year, it is easy to see the financial advantage cannabis provided. In 2019 nearly 2 billion dollars in tax revenue was generated with these states leading in cannabis profits; California took in $538 million, Washington state $354 million, Colorado $290 million and Oregon $155 million. Simply put, cannabis has nearly unprecedented potential to be a top state income generator. That is just money, what about job creation related to the cannabis industry? As of early 2020, so looking mostly at job creation in 2019, the cannabis industry had created nearly 250,000 jobs. These are not only dispensary jobs but in all areas of the cannabis industry including research and development, brand creation and cannabis cultivation. As the industry continues to grow, so will the job opportunities and the overall economic impact of cannabis.
Early in 2020, when most of the US was headed into some form of lockdown, cannabis was declared an essential service and that declaration has helped the industry not just continue to operate during the pandemic but to thrive as the demand for cannabis in all legal states has hit new records. This makes perfect sense as many people are at home and feeling the stress and anxiety that seems to be a part of the new normal we are all living, cannabis has truly been an essential service. This is not likely to change any time soon and as more states vote to legalize the medical and/or recreational use of cannabis, the growth that the industry has seen in the last year will continue and may even increase.
The willingness of the cannabis industry to be flexible in their operations has also been a significant factor for the unparalleled success of the industry overall. As many businesses struggled to adopt their brick and mortar storefronts to constantly changing conditions, marijuana dispensaries have been quick to make the necessary modifications to ensure a safe experience for not just customers and patients but employees as well. Many dispensaries moved to strictly curbside pickup and made modifications to their websites to support this change. It may be slightly disappointing for some people who enjoy the in person dispensary experience but cannabis lovers have adapted. The cannabis delivery option seems to have uneven growth, with some states and cities offering multiple options and others not venturing down that path yet. This is one area in particular that may continue to develop in various states. If the demand is there and cannabis customers need delivery, the industry seems likely to respond in a positive way.
AOC supports cannabis legalization and ending the war on drugs. Democrats and Republicans are usually divided on a range of big policy issues, however Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Democrat-NY) said on Thursday that legalizing cannabis and ending the war on drugs are standing out as exceptions to hyper-partisanship in Congress.
During a virtual town hall with cannabis reform ally Rep. Earl Blumenauer (Democrat-OR), Ocasio-Cortez said that since she took office, it’s been encouraging to see members on both sides come together on issues concerning “civil rights policy and civil liberties,” including ending “drug prohibition laws.”
“We have been able to suggest solutions on a broad spectrum towards cannabis decriminalization, towards legalization, and that’s increasingly turning into a stance that more Republicans are amenable to,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Examples include her spending bill amendment to divert $5 million in funding from the Drug Enforcement Administration to an opioid treatment plan has been approved with no opposition in the House this past year, she stated. This shows the commitment that AOC supports cannabis legalization.
Blumenauer also stated that “part of why we’re fighting so strongly to get rid of the failed prohibition on marijuana is because that has been a tool that’s been used against people of color in particular that has horrible consequences and helps fuel that prison pipeline that has wreaked such havoc on our communities.”
Ocasio-Cortez explained that, beyond federally legalizing marijuana, it is important for lawmakers to make certain that any regulated markets which emerge are organized in a manner that encourages participation by communities hurt under prohibition. Considering AOC supports cannabis legalization on a federal level will have a big impact going into 2021.
Ocasio-Cortez said, “There are various ways that we may go about legalizing marijuana in America, and you can go about it in a manner that concentrates power in large agriculture, that concentrates power in large banks and that cuts out small mom and pops, and then there is another route towards cannabis legalization where regular people and especially the black and brown communities which have been disproportionately affected by the war on drugs can be in the front of enjoying the financial benefits of legalization.”
Located on Friendly Street right at 27th in Eugene this amazing dispensary is doing things right and one of my favorite recreational marijuana dispensaries in Eugene. They are currently open from 10 am to 8 pm every day but Sunday, with slightly reduced hours of 11 am to 7 pm. From the outside of the dispensary you would never guess how beautiful, light and airy the inside is and it’s such an inviting vibe that no matter your age or cannabis expertise level, you will feel comfortable in this environment. They are open for both pickup and delivery, which is a bonus and on a limited basis their budroom is open with clear and safe procedures in place. Make sure you come with exact change though, it is required. Moss Crossing has an extremely user friendly website, which should answer any questions you might have about their cannabis products or really anything cannabis related and if you can’t find the answer to what you need, give them a call. They offer up to 20% off selected items and that is a seriously good discount for their quality products. They also have some unique glassware to check out in addition to an extensive menu. For vegans, they have a line of edibles that are delicious. Their CBD products are also fairly extensive. The Burner Phone hybrid flower was recommended by a very nice budtender and was amazing! A true hybrid that is perfectly potent. The Allen Wrench Live Budder was also off the charts in terms of price (reasonable) and potency (you will be super stoned). You really can’t ask for more than that from any marijuana dispensary.
With locations in both Portland Oregon and Eugene, this two dispensary chain is more than just a cool sounding place to buy marijuana and one of the best recreational marijuana dispensaries in Eugene. Located on River Road it is both a recreational and medical dispensary. Currently they are open from 9 am to 9:45 pm every day for pickup only right now which is a shame as this is a beautiful dispensary on the inside but best to be safe than try to open for in store shopping if they are not ready. The inside is huge and in a strange way resembles a marijuana museum, lots of wood and glass. This is the place to get your cannabis on your birthday as they offer a 30% discount off your total order which is incredible! They also offer a 10% discount daily for both seniors and veterans plus plenty of daily and weekly specials. The budtenders are experts in the area of all things cannabis and happy to explain things to novice users which is so nice because many people feel a bit intimidated when they first purchase marijuana from a dispensary. They have their menu on both Leafly and Dutchie but preorders for pickup must be placed through Dutchie. The CannaCrispy Fruity edibles are priced right and a welcome change from the traditional Rice Krispy type fare, which they also have. They have classic flower strains like Royal Highness very reasonably priced and the quality is superb plus more unique strains like Dread Bread, a sweet organic hybrid bud that should be in all dispensaries. Overall this dispensary has an extensive variety for any cannabis need.
This dispensary is located pretty centrally on Oak Street at 15th in in The Exchange Building, just two blocks from Safeway and is another one of the great recreational marijuana dispensaries in Eugene. They are open from 10 am to 9 pm every day and are currently doing both curbside pickup and delivery, just give them a call about delivery. They plan to open a River Road location soon and are the oldest OLCC licensed dispensary in Eugene so they know their cannabis. The Greener Side is a leader in the community in terms of donation drives for a wide variety of charities and they are also one of the founding members of the Oregon Cannabis Industry Association which works towards creating best practice standards within the Oregon cannabis community. All that and they have some seriously good weed too! Their website is good but could use a little updating however all menu information is kept updated. They also have a 10% off veterans discount and a 5% senior/student/industry discount plus daily deals 7 days a week. All this plus the best prices around, although keep in mind the menu lists pre-tax prices. The Sticky Bitch, which had to be tried because of the name, is indeed a sticky dank flower which smells and tastes great plus it is one of the best cannabis strains around. The Slurricane Indica flower lives up to its name and leaves you with an intense dreamy body buzz like a good Indica should. The Mimosa Live resin is yummy and super potent! They have some cool merch for sale as well if that’s your thing. Speaking with a budtender on the phone was easy and it’s clear they know their cannabis!
Located right near WOW Hall in downtown Eugene in a mocha colored house this dispensary is the stuff of dreams and one of the most interesting recreational marijuana dispensaries in Eugene. Spacebuds The Dispensary is open from 9 am to 10 pm except Sunday they close at 9 pm. A concept dispensary for those who love horror, technology, classic space themed movies and games, in the words of Kelly the cool budtender, a techies dream. Their website alone will transport you back in time, it is full of fun information presented in a totally unique way, well maybe George Lucas would disagree but for the world of cannabis, it’s an epic website. They have started streaming on Twitch from their site plus in the area of “Hidden Knowledge” is an impressive collection of quite a few studies related to cannabis and its use for a variety of medical conditions plus other more general cannabis information. You can easily spend hours on their site! Currently you can pick up your cannabis or have someone speed your weed to you, really though they do deliver between noon and 8 pm except no Sunday delivery but if you have the opportunity, pay them a visit in person. Currently they are allowing 4 people in the budroom and while you are waiting there is more than enough cool stuff to check out and with it being the month of Halloween, they have gone all out. They offer daily specials plus so many specific discounts, no stacking though. Seniors, veterans, students, teachers, industry peeps get 10% off plus they offer other specials you must check out like from 11-noon and 4:20 to 5:20 a Time Travelers Special of 50% off house rolls. Amazing. Now to the marijuana itself. The Candyland hybrid flower is highly recommended, pun intended and the Black Kush might become a new nighttime favorite. This unique and mind-blowing dispensary is someplace you must experience if you live in Eugene or are passing through.
A foundation run by Mark Zuckerberg and his wife gave a significant contribution to a campaign currently trying to pass a ballot measure that would decriminalize all drugs in Oregon. The $500,000 contribution from Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Advocacy represents roughly a third of funding raised to date in support of Measure 110, which would decriminalize drug possession when using some of present legal marijuana tax earnings to cover expanded substance abuse treatment solutions. This could be a huge boost not only to Oregon, but also the rest of the nation, that Mark Zuckerberg supports drug decriminalization.
Supporters of the measure say it is part of an attempt to change the way we look at drug abuse as a health issue, instead of a matter to be dealt with through the criminal justice system. If accepted, low-level possession could be considered a civil infraction punishable by a maximum $100 fine and zero jail time.
The new half-million-dollar money donation made on Thursday, which was first reported by The Oregonian, makes the Zuckerbergs the initiative’s second-biggest backers, following the Drug Policy Alliance’s political arm Drug Policy Action, which has given $850,000.
The campaign said it has received over 400 individual donations up to now, with a median contribution amount of $50–and more than 83 percent of donations are made by Oregonians.
In 2018 there were 8,903 simple drug possession arrests in Oregon, according to the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission. This is more than one drug possession arrest each hour.
The commission estimated that the decriminalization initiative would reduce felony and misdemeanor convictions for drug possession by 91 percent, which would be “substantial for all racial groups, ranging from 82.9 percent for Asian Oregonians to approximately 94 percent for Native American and Black Oregonians.”
Over 50 other organizations have endorsed this initiative, some of which include; Oregon State Council for Retired Citizens, NAACP of Eugene, United Seniors of Oregon, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon and Human Rights Watch, Oregon Latino Health Coalition and more.
Oregon voters will also find another initiative to legalize psilocybin treatment on the upcoming ballot. The Oregon Democratic Party have endorsed both drug policy steps measures.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, marijuana sales in Oregon have drastically increased. A number of that excess revenue would fund addiction treatment services if voters approved the drug decriminalization measure. This has been a big boos for recreational dispensaries in Portland and other Oregon cities.
As legalization continues to gain momentum across the nation, the fact that Mark Zuckerberg supports drug decriminalization should have a big impact on the continued forward progress of the movement.
Many stoners and anyone who loves marijuana has probably secretly wished they could roam free amongst fields and fields of cannabis. Lie blissfully in the pungent paradise and toke up to their hearts content. Maybe this comes from watching Leonardo DiCaprio in The Beach too many times or just general weed fantasizing. The natural conclusion to this Clackamas marijuana farm robbery fantasy ends with grabbing as much cannabis as one can carry and walking away into the sunset, forever stoned. There are many reasons why this should stay just a fantasy. One of which, it’s illegal to steal, no matter where you happen to live and second, it’s just bad karma.
The real life version of this cannabis dream played out just the other night in Clackamas Country Oregon, near a small town, Molalla, one of many heavily damaged by recent wildfires in Oregon and up and down the West Coast of the US. How this doomed caper got started is so far anyone’s guess but four guys heard from “a friend” about the location of a cannabis farm in the Molalla area. Clearly their plans took shape for the Clackamas marijuana farm robbery as it is now harvest time in the Pacific Northwest and despite the tragedy of the wildfires, many cannabis farms were spared. Rather than spend money at a local dispensary, these guys decided to take it upon themselves to do their own harvesting in the middle of the night.
They clearly put some though into this crime because they came prepared with plenty of ways to carry the cannabis, large duffel bags were simply not enough for these greedy guys, they stuffed cannabis plants in literally every pocket of their pants, shirts, jackets and although the final weight has not been made public as of this writing, the estimates are between 60-80 lbs. of cannabis between the four of them. That is a lot of weed. Not sure if they planned to consume it all themselves or sell most of it but either way, they’re not going to get the chance.
The police rolled up on them at about 3:20 am as they were trudging down Highway 211 loaded down with all that cannabis. Perhaps they should have waited until 4:20 to begin this heist but they didn’t and karma was definitely not on their side. Once they were arrested, the police informed them that what they had risked it all for were high CBD cannabis plants with hardly any THC in them at all. So unless they were planning to start their own CBD products business, they probably never considered the possibility that what they had stolen would not be getting them high, just incarcerated. You have to wonder what kind of “friend” this was that clued them in on the farm’s location.
The value of that cannabis, just $2500. If that cannabis had been high in THC, the value would have been at least $50,000. So the moral of the story, besides don’t steal, is support your local dispensaries. They have put a lot of time, effort and money into growing some superior cannabis and despite the wildfires, are doing the best they can to salvage their crops so that everyone can spend the winter nice and high.

A new coalition of advocacy groups and marijuana businesses have unveiled a special strategy to legalize interstate cannabis trade regardless of continuing national prohibition.
The Alliance for Sensible Markets effort will be pushing governors from authorized and probably soon-to-be legal cannabis states to enter into an interstate compact, a constitutionally recognized arrangement between at least two states, establishing a framework for marijuana to be transported and marketed across state lines.
This type of arrangement has not been attempted before for cannabis, but if the new attempt succeeds in acquiring at least two states to sign on, the compact could then be sent to Congress, where lawmakers would have the decision to codify the agreement. It might be passed as standalone laws or attached as an amendment or rider to a wider bill.
Possibly the best example of an interstate compact is that the Port Authority, which was made in 1921 to regulate regional transport and infrastructure between New York and New Jersey. Both states are now being targeted at the Alliance for Sensible Markets, even though neither have legalization on the books as of yet. California and Oregon are the two other states the campaign expects to target for participation.
Part of the logic in deciding on these states is that California and Oregon are believed manufacturer states with large volumes of cannabis, whereas New York and New Jersey are more broadly consumer states, where the climate is not as friendly to large-scale, outside cultivation.
Oregon’s governor has already provided a sign that she would be on board, signing a bill last year that would allow cannabis to be imported and exported from different states if national law or policy provides for it. Activists had hoped to find similar laws enacted in California this year, but the coronavirus pandemic slowed down that progress.
Adam Smith, founder and president of Alliance for Sensible Markets, says the group’s pitch to governors is straightforward:”We are in the middle of a historic downturn and jobs crisis, right? I believe that there’s not any other business in the U.S. private industry that’s as poised to assist the recovery.”
“With this policy change, instantly across manufacturer states, you will notice valuations for thousands of farms and companies increased by multiples, which will spur a direct wave of investment growth and job creation. On the east coast in the customer states, legalizing marijuana with interstate commerce, will mean they can get businesses up and running and stable in 6 to 18 months, as opposed to three, five, or seven years, spurring a direct wave of investment, business formation and tens of thousands of jobs just when states need them.”
Multiple groups are participating in the campaign, including the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA), the New York City Cannabis Industry Association, the Craft Cannabis Alliance, the Global Alliance for Cannabis Commerce, as well as almost 50 additional companies and organization.
Genine Coleman, executive director of the Origins Council, stated interstate trade “will help thousands of farms and businesses, but it’ll be a real game changer for legacy growers in California and Oregon, where most of America’s marijuana has ever been grown.”
The group’s objective will be to draft a proposed agreement no later than December then get two governors or more to sign the agreement to legalize interstate cannabis trade by March 2021.
As it stands, transporting marijuana across state lines is strictly illegal under present federal law. The Justice Department explained such action as an enforcement priority under a now rescinded Obama-era memo designed to generally respect state marijuana policies.
Lawmakers whom have already set up the groundwork for the change in policy include Representative Earl Blumenauer (Democrat-OR) and Senator Ron Wyden (Democrat-OR). Soon after Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) signed the legalize interstate cannabis trade bill, the legislators filed a bill that would likewise allow for such action , preventing the Justice Department from interfering in states that have agreements to sell cannabis across state lines.
Also, governors in the Northeast have discussed at length the need to develop coordinated legalization programs , even though it is not clear whether they had some explicit discussion of state-to-state commerce. The wider talks could indicate that they would be open to entering into an interstate compact.
With most of the world observing some level of sticking close to home, delivery services have become essential. Although they can be a little costly, the convenience more than makes up for it in most cases. For anyone who has had a great delivery experience, there are 10 more that have had problems, sometimes big expensive time consuming problems. Portland cannabis delivery is no different than any delivery service, when it’s good it’s very very good but when it’s bad, it’s truly rotten. Below you can see three different cannabis delivery reviews including some of the most important factors for deliver, cost, ease of use, quality of product, delivery time and other relevant elements that can make or break your cannabis delivery. All dispensaries are located in Portland Oregon.
Greenery is a completely delivery dedicated business, there is no dispensary you can visit which is a growing trend for Portland cannabis delivery. The website is super simple to navigate and very user friendly. There is a $30 minimum which is fairly reasonable and to be expected from any cannabis delivery service. The product maximum amounts are also fairly typical and well within the Oregon legal guidelines. One ounce of flowers including prerolls, 16 ounces of edibles and 5 grams of concentrates. Important to note that deliveries can only be made to residences and only once per day. So if you want to get your cannabis delivered to your workplace and you work at say a bank, not going to be possible. They do close fairly early at 8 pm and if you factor in delivery time of about two plus hours, place your order well before 6 pm. Also worth noting, have your ID ready, they will need to see it.
Quality of the products is excellent if a bit limited. The Lemon OG Kush flower was super dank but a bit pricey. The Pink Lemonade Diesel flower was worth every penny and the Blue Dream shatter was the stuff of dreams, yep blue ones! The prerolls are very reasonably priced but the choices again are not as extensive as other places. The edibles are also fairly sparse but there are some good options for the cannabis edible fans out there, especially ones who like chocolate. The one real downside of Greenery are the CBD options. There just aren’t many with the exceptions of some edibles and Rick Simpson Oils.
Overall Greenery did a great job at delivering some fantastic products and on time as well! They are super communicative and you can call or text them with questions before, during or after placing your order. It would have been a nice bonus to get some swag, like a lighter or a sticker but they did an amazing job of delivering some seriously solid cannabis.
As with Greenery, Kush Cart is exclusively dedicated to cannabis delivery. The minimum delivery amount is slightly more at $40 and they have longer delivery hours but you must place your order by 7:45 pm if you want to receive it by the cut off of 9 pm. On the weekends this may change as more people want cannabis delivered on weekends. Their delivery time window does vary from 1-3 hours so plan your day accordingly. They are communicative with you during the delivery process but as you must provide a signature upon delivery, in addition to showing your ID and paying them, being at home is obviously going to be mandatory. Kush Cart offers an alternative payment method called CanPay, which is like PayPal but for specifically cannabis, how cool is that? Bonus is they offer a 15% discount for OMMP (Oregon Medical Marijuana Program) cardholders and a loyalty program for any cannabis customer.
Kush Cart’s website in very extensive in terms of cannabis products, they have it all, or close to it all and extensive general information should you want to learn something about cannabis while making your selections. So extensive that it loads a little slow sometimes but the sheer quantity of product choices makes up for it. The Cloud Cover Indica flower was priced well and delivered a couch locked yet uplifting high. The Duct Tape was a beautiful silver flower that delivered pure euphoria and the CannaCrispy was everything a cannabis rice crispy treat should be and for almost 50 mg for $5, priced just right.
Overall Kush Cart did a phenomenal job, the delivery person was extremely professional and while they were a little late, the communication was good. The vast selection of products made choosing difficult but that happens to most people at a dispensary if you are not sure what you want to try. They did throw in a little swag in the form of a half gram preroll so of course that was a big plus. Kush Cart knows the cannabis delivery business and the cannabis business in general and it shows.
This is a local dispensary that also offers delivery services as well as curbside pickup. Oregon’s Finest lives up to its name on many levels. They have some seriously top shelf products, a slick although somewhat confusing website and prices to match. As there are two dispensary locations in the Portland area, you can expect to pay a delivery fee and the fee will be based on your location relative to the nearest dispensary. The fees range from $5-20. Cash only and you will of course be expected to show your ID to the delivery person. For a same day evening delivery you must place your order before 5 pm but they deliver until 9:50 pm. If you place your order early in the day you can expect to wait an hour but after 5, delivery time varies considerably from between 1-4 hours. Oregon’s Finest offers considerable discounts for OMMP cardholders as well as veterans. Super cool of them!
Browsing for products and going through the checkout process on Oregon’s Finest website was interesting. Slightly counterintuitive but a very well structured site, set aside some time to explore. They have a decent selection in all main cannabis product areas but seem to really shine when it comes to vapes and edibles. The Atomic Collider hybrid flower was beyond good and worth the few extra dollars. A perfect hybrid, balanced head and body high. The Peanut Butter Breath Live Resin Cartridge was also pricey but was off the charts intense and peanut buttery, which seems like a really good combination. Both the Chai and Lemon cake balls were everything an edible should be, delicious and powerful at 45mg for a 3 ball order. Mixing of balls not allowed unfortunately.
The quality of Oregon’s Finest products cannot be disputed, they are premium. So are their prices but with so much in life, you get what you pay for. The delivery time was slightly under the promised two hours and no swag was included. The only real downside of Oregon’s Finest lies on their website. For cannabis customers who go to one of their dispensaries, getting information about products and asking questions is super easy but finding information on the website is not always so easy. This applies particularly to cannabis strain information. They have a chat feature which is a bit slow but you can always give them a call with specific questions and they are more than happy to help.
In countries that have legalized marijuana, either for recreational or medical use, dispensaries are forever changing the tradition of purchasing buds. When you are looking for marijuana dispensaries in my state, visiting these pot shops may be an eye-opening experience for people who have just known the restricted alternatives, questionable quality and legal hazards of black-market buys. But with all these marijuana dispensaries cropping up throughout the nation, it can be tough to know which ones actually excel.
If you are seeking a greater cannabis-buying experience, look no further than these picks for the best marijuana dispensaries in my state and in the America. Below are over 70 medical and recreational pot shops across the nation that stand out for their elite and extensive inventories, awesome environments and excellent staffs.
Best Marijuana Dispensaries In My State – Northern California
The Bay Area is the birthplace of the modern marijuana dispensary, due to the pot pioneers who boldly opened the San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club in 1992–four years before the passage of Proposition 215, the state’s landmark medical marijuana legislation. That compassionate spirit remains at the core of the area’s dispensaries, which provide everything from boutique buds into the mythical outdoor cannabis of the Emerald Triangle. The Bay also boasts some of the nation’s finest makers of concentrates, edibles and topicals. Here are our picks for the best stores in NorCal.
This large and gorgeous dispensary has one of the broadest selections of top-shelf meds and edibles anywhere in the country –and the very helpful staff makes shopping here a joy. Regular barbecues and community events have turned this store into a social hub for stoners from the Golden State’s capital.
This place has a swank decor and heady menu, but that is just for starters–it also has a complete dab and vape pub. Lots of the items on the menu are offered for less than $10. It is a great place to pop in to get a buzz before dinner or a night out in San Francisco. Barbary Coast provides a glimpse of what the future might look like once public-consumption problems are finally behind us.
Quality medication is job one for CannaCruz: The team here takes safe access to clean meds severely. Found in the surfer and hippie heaven of Santa Cruz, this dispensary has a surf-shop texture to it. When you see CannaCruz, get yourself a pre-roll (they really have good pre-rolls… seriously) and visit the dog beach for a blaze and a sunset.
Terrific weed coupled with a neighborhood feel make this Berkeley store a local institution. Free fruit and snacks, chess boards and books give this place a true rec-center vibe. An upbeat DJ spinning music and a huge menu with very reasonable pricing make CBCB a excellent place to receive your medical buds and enjoy a pickup game of chess with a few of the sailors.
