While visiting friendly Dockside Cooperative in the Seattle suburb of Fremont (“the Center of the Universe”), I noticed one welcome innovation that budtender Aaron told me is very helpful in allowing patients to find the strains that work best for them: sampler packs.
Dockside has sampler packs of both sativa strains and indicas, as well as 50/50 packs with four strains of each. Seen in the photo above is a Sativa Sampler Pack I got at Dockside today.
Sampler packs are available for $85 each, which is a bargain considering you get a gram each of eight strains; four of the eight strains go for $15 a gram and the other four go for $12 a gram — that’s $108 worth of medicine for just $85.
Additionally, they have the best selection of edibles I’ve ever seen in Seattle: not just the regular sweets like Rice Krispie treats, cupcakes and brownies, but also savory snacks like lasagna, soups, burritos and even beef jerky. (See my Seattle Weekly “Voracious” review of the medicated lasagna, here.)
Two kinds of tinctures, in both glycerin- and alcohol-based formulas, are available, as are numerous topicals, including salve, muscle rubs, bath salts, and foot balm. It’s worthy of note that The Cure tinctures are made with Rick Simpson oil and are quite potent indeed, at $30 a bottle.
Concentrates include honey oil, bubble hash and kief. Kief pills (containing kief in a base of coconut oil) are available at $5 apiece, three for $10.
