Flower Power

Your Neighborhood Market

Located just two blocks from the Montgomery BART Station in downtown San Francisco, Flower Power has staked its claim as the neighborhood go-to spot in the Financial District. You’re welcomed into a tall, open main room, flanked with a wall of mirrors and an array of brightly lit, easily navigable displays. Their early hours cater to the commuter crowd—before the workday, during lunch and the after-work rush. If you don’t need a consultation you can always place an online order for pick up in-store via their POS system, powered by Meadow SF.

Town Vibes in the City

Wendy, the owner and proprietor of the dispensary, has vast experience maintaining a chill, relaxed space, as she was previously the owner of the legendary Blue Sky Coffee Shop in downtown Oakland. Flower Power opened in June of 2016, and the small team of dedicated employees clearly care for the well-being of both the patients and the shop itself, as though each employee was an owner. “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in business, it’s you can’t get greedy. And equally important is [that] the person with the best weed wins,” says Wendy.

Fantastic Flowers and Flavors

“‘If there’s one thing I’ve learned in business, it’s you can’t get greedy. And equally important is [that] the person with the best weed wins.’” – Wendy, owner of Flower Power

Bucking the SF norm, eighths average between $35-40, a result of owner Wendy’s tendency to choose product from smaller local farmers, extractors and confectioners, rather than more corporatized practices, predominantly serving energetic sativa strains to their working clientele. FP’s flower guru, Matt, recommended the strains Strawberry Banana and Dos Si Dos. The Strawberry Banana was sweet and frosty, and the blend of Banana Kush and Bubblegum made for a delightful smoke. Easygoing, yet heavily resin-coated, I felt the power of peace and love present in the flower. Dos Si Dos are tight, resin-saturated buds, heavy on the OG dank with a shock of lime and pine that cut right through the nose. The thick, syrupy smoke provided the balanced, euphoric relaxation I specifically crave from the Cookies family—an excellent recommendation by Matt, and one I’ll be returning to.
