How do I get a medical card?

Washington state’s medical marijuana program is administered through the Washington State Department of Health. There is a page on their website devoted to the program. Once you have a completed Medical Marijuana authorization form from your health care practitioner, visit our Iron Street or Guide Meridian location, where one of our knowledgeable Medical Marijuana Consultants will be able to create your recognition card.

How much marijuana can I purchase and possess in Washington?

You can purchase and possess up to one ounce (28 grams) of marijuana flower at one time, 16 ounces of marijuana-infused edibles in solid form, 72 ounces in liquid form, and 7 grams of marijuana concentrates. If you are a registered medical marijuana patient, your limits will vary, based on your healthcare practitioner’s recommendation.

How much is a gram of marijuana, in practical terms?

One gram is enough for a decent sized joint, or – depending on the size of your pipe – about three or four small to medium bowls worth. There are 3.5 grams in an eighth, 7 grams in a quarter, 14 in a half ounce, and 28 grams in an full ounce.

Where can I legally consume marijuana?

In Washington State, you can only use marijuana at a private residence. If you use marijuana in a public place, you may be fined up to $1,000. Some hotels and “bud and breakfast” resorts allow their guests to smoke, but you’ll want to call and check first. Initiative 502 states that it is unlawful to open/consume a package of marijuana or marijuana infused product in view of the general public. Several bills have been introduced to the legislature to allow public consumption and smoking lounges, but none have passed.

My cartridge is not working. Can I bring it back?

Absolutely! We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Along with that guarantee, we do need to comply with the regulations that govern our industry. One of the requirements that is beyond our control is that any cannabis product being returned to a retail store must be in the original packaging with the lot number intact. Without the packaging, we are unfortunately prohibited from accepting a return. Additionally, products must be returned to the location that they are purchased from. We recommend keeping the package for your cartridge until you are finished with it, in the rare event there is an issue. Many issues with cartridges can be resolved with a minor adjustment to either the battery or the cartridge. Feel free to give us a call at 360-734-2020, and one of our budtenders would be happy to help you troubleshoot over the phone.

Do you sell plant seeds, starts or clones?

As a licensed cannabis retailer in Washington, we are only able to sell cannabis that is ready for consumption. Current regulations do not allow for you to grow your own cannabis unless you are a qualifying medical patient or designated provider. If you are a qualifying patient, or designated provider, you can access a list of licensed producers.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Most won’t feel “stoned” off CBD alone, and some individuals find that it actually counters the effects of THC. The reason why CBD is non-psychoactive is due to its lack of affinity for cannabinoid receptors, which are the pathways responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD products purchased from our stores are cannabis derived which provide a larger spectrum of cannabinoids than CBD derived from hemp. For more information about CBD, come in and talk to one of our budtenders. 

My Uncle/Grandma/Cousin told me that CBD can fix my (Insert ailment here). Will it work?

While there are many success stories surrounding CBD, it’s not for everyone, and it is not a cure-all. Everyone has a very unique endocannabinoid system that will interact with different cannabinoids in different ways. We recommend talking with your healthcare practitioner to see if they recommend cannabis as a treatment. We encourage you to stop in and speak with one of our knowledgeable budtenders, who can work with you to find a product that may help you. We want you to have a pleasant experience with cannabis, so it’s important to be truthful with your budtender about your history with cannabis. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, we are happy to work with first timers, as well as veteran cannabis consumers.

What is a vaporizer?

A vaporizer is a device used to vaporize (rather than burn) the active ingredients in plant material. People believe it's a safer alternative to conventional methods of smoking and is the reason for vaporizing's recent popularity.

Can I get a DUI while high?

The initiative sets a per se DUI limit of "delta-9" THC levels at greater than or equal to 5 nanograms per milliliter of blood (5 ng/mL). State and local law enforcement agencies are tasked with enforcing the DUI limit. Part of being a responsible cannabis consumer is not driving while high.
