Seattle Hempfest is finally upon us! In celebration of another year of legal cannabis, you’re probably scoping out places to stock up on your favorite strains and products. Why not stop by a dispensary on your way in or out of the event? Here’s a convenient list of dispensaries near Hempfest, as well some product suggestions to prepare you for the big weekend ahead.
Herban Legends (0.9 miles from Hempfest)
Herban Legends is less than a mile from the Hempfest entrance. Stop in and grab some goods with just enough time to finish that pre-roll before rolling up to the event gates.
Try This Product: 2g of Lemon OG Kush for $24
Why It’s Great: This flower is grown by Gabriel, a brand that doesn’t skimp on quality and potency. I’d suggest twisting a blunt for the occasion, a little something classic for the culture. Plus, blunts are a great way of making friends in Seattle—they seems to be a rarity around here. It’ll be like breaking out Excalibur or some shit.
Have A Heart – Belltown (1.2 miles from Hempfest)
Downtown’s pride and joy, Have A Heart in Belltown is just a short hop and a skip from Hempfest. Their selection includes a plethora of products, including great value-minded brands like Legends and premium top-shelf brands like House of Cultivar and SubX. Plus they also have (a heart) the strongest pre-roll selection I’ve come across thus far. They get pretty busy, so get there early enough to ask questions and get your needs taken care of without any stress.
Try This Product: Hybrid Candy Cone (0.75g for $8, 1g for $10)
Why It’s Great: Candy Cones are pre-rolls that are covered in wax then topped with kief. The THC content usually hovers around 43%, so these will definitely hit you with that PAYOW! that’ll have you stoned for the next 18 hours. (Just kidding. But maybe.) I’ve smoked multiple Hybrid Candy Cones on the waterfront while reflecting on who’s the best Ninja Turtle, and I can tell you this product is worth every bit of your money. Also, the answer is Donatello.
Ruckus (2.6 miles from Hempfest)
Leafly Pickup is now available at Ruckus. Order online and save time. Hempfest waits for no one!
Right atop the hill, you’ve got Ruckus, a small dispensary with a welcoming atmosphere and knowledgeable, patient budtenders. Seriously, they’ll hang tight as you flip through the entire menu while answering every question that comes up. Also, Ruckus is a great place to get ounces for as low as $50 to $80. It’s a little outside of walking distance from Hempfest—unless you’re trying to squeeze in a workout before the big celebration, like doing pushups before a first date. It’s still within a convenient rideshare distance.
Try This Product: 6-pack of Snickerdoodle Cookies by Goodship for $40
Why It’s Great: These 10mg edibles are a steal for such great-tasting cookies with reliable effects. Plus, they fit into pockets for later consumption. I think you see where I’m going with this.
Green Fire Cannabis (3.2 miles from Hempfest)
Green Fire in SODO is a great dispensary and glass shop that provides a smooth, low-stress experience. I pulled up on the boys last week to discuss concentrates, and it was a pleasantly chill experience. The budtender was very helpful, and the shop offers a vast selection with price points that suit every type of consumer. (I bought a gram of Stardawg wax for just $20.)
Try This Product: 0.5g Skywalker Cartridge by Bloom for $38
Why It’s Great: Formerly known as Skywalker, Mazar x Blueberry is a great indica-dominant hybrid that delivers a knockout blow to most consumers. If you’re the type who’s just going to Hempfest to cruise around on the outskirts of the crowd, this is a great portable product to scoop up.
Diego Pellicer (3.5 miles from Hempfest)
Leafly Pickup is now available at Diego Pellicer. Order online and save time. Hempfest waits for no one!
Diego Pellicer is running a lot of Hempfest discounts that are worth going out of your way for. They’ve got 40% off of Viva Cannabis and 67% off Herb’s Oil ounces, amongst other great deals.
Try This Product: An eighth of Wedding Cake by Exotikz for $51
Why It’s Great: This product may not be among Diego’s discounted items, but I can say with 100% certainty that it’s worth the money. Whew doggie, it had ya boy sprawled out on the carpet in a world of comfort. With a THC content nearing 24%, Wedding Cake paired nicely with my binge of Game of Thrones. No doubt it’ll pair nicely with your Hempfest experience as well.
