Dispensaries That Will Convert Even The Most Hardcore Weed Snob

What makes these dispensaries the most unique?

by Michael Geslani

The Reef –  For those who are looking for a convenient and discreet method of obtaining cannabis, The Reef is a newly opened digital dispensary out of Seattle that offers all the trappings of a traditional dispensary, but with the latest in technology. The dispensary is nestled in one of Seattle’s scenic suburbs in Bremerton and is inviting all customers to enjoy an advanced shopping experience. The shopping experience allows customers to step up to a variety of tablets that shows information and reviews on all products, taking away the pressure of customers waiting all while making your purchase and having the items brought to you.

Elemental Wellness – A well-known dispensary out of Northern California that not only offers exceptional medical cannabis, but it also offers a wide array of services such as cooking classes, growing classes, Yoga, Tai Chi, and even Cardio Fit X that is tailor-made for women. The state of the art facility also boasts numerous rooms to host a list of events free of charge as long as you’re a current member of the dispensary. Their True OG strain is one of California’s hottest on the market with a recent 2nd Place win for its Live Resin at the High Times 2016 NorCal Cannabis Cup in Indica Concentrates.

National Holistic Healing Center – In Washington, DC sits another cannabis dispensary that offers patients a list of services including gardening, cooking, and holistic healing. The educational classes (Dabbing 101, Introduction to Edibles) offered are positioned to help new patients as well as long time cannabis users.

Rosanne’s Joint – Actress Roseanne Barr is about to add “dispensary owner” to her extensive resume. The one-time presidential candidate will open her pot shop, aptly named “Roseanne’s Joint”, this year. “I’m proud to be a cultural pioneer at the forefront of another wave of progress. And we’re proud of the city of Santa Ana as we continue to move into the era of recognizing cannabis as a natural, therapeutic, herbal substance medical science has proven it to be,” proclaimed the veteran comedian.

Cookies SF – This is probably one of the safest places to get the real Cookies stash since this one houses the official strains from popular rapper Berner. At this dispensary you can find the famous Berner’s Cookies along with his other additions such as Berner’s Cherry Pie, Gelato 41, and the flavorful Sunset Sherbert.

Here are few cannabis-related items that might make the most hardcore weed snob convert:

  • Reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel, is making waves and is all for cannabis by launching her own cannabis-infused line in Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington called, "Skinnygirl Marijuana." According to multiple reports its suppose to take after Frankel's Skinny girl cocktail company (which she sold for a reported $100 million in 2011) but by engineering marijuana strains that won't give you the "munchies."

  • 4/20 inspired brew for those who choose to drink – The fun guys over at Lagunitas Brewing Company in Santa Rosa, Calif. have a 4/20 inspired ale called, “The Waldos’ Special Ale,” that is only available on April 20 each year. Another 4/20 inspired brew is available through Thorn St. Brewery in San Diego, California who offers OG HighPA that contains terpenes derived from Pineapple Express.
