Green Mart – Beaverton, OR
This fine cannabis establishment is conveniently located a few minutes off Highway 26, between Murray and Cedar Hills on Walker Road. There is an insane amount of free, easily available parking … I’m serious! Gem-inspired metallic cannabis leaves adorn the building inside and out. Gray wood paneling surrounds the lower half of the inner dispensary walls, while huge wrap-around photos of cannabis reach to the ceiling. There’s even a fantastically intriguing door with a huge locking mechanism like something out of a “Mission: Impossible” movie — I was terribly curious as to what extraordinary cannabis treats might be hiding behind that alluring portal!
Thanks to Abbey, a self-proclaimed “chronicologist” who seems to love her interactions with customers as much as her customers love their cannabis, let me in on a secret I’ll now share with you: if you’re looking for Northern Cheese by Greenworks Farms, an indica-heavy cross of Northern Lights and a UK Cheese plant that’s over 20 years old, this is the only place you’ll find it — it’s grown exclusively for Green Mart. The strain is ideal for insomnia, pain relief and inducing appetite. Now that the cat’s out of that bag, let me just say, they have quite the inventory. Pacific Wave chocolate bars in Peanut Butter, Toffee and Krispy Crunch varieties; Delta 9 THC drinks; elbe’s edibles Cakeballs; dozens of types of rolling papers, including a root beer-flavored option from Juicy Jay’s; dab tools galore; and pipes of every size and shape — even an elephant glass pipe that you smoke through the trunk!
Noah, one of the assistant managers, has been around almost since the beginning. He said that when he was hired, Jami, the store manager, told him, “Vibe is everything here, and we strive to keep it that way.” Welcoming, smiling budtenders are quick on their feet and filled with knowledge; with an extremely low turnover, they know clients’ names and seem to be having conversations with friends rather than customers. The fast-paced, high-energy shop is fully staffed every day so budtenders can spend extra time with customers. When an employee tells me they “freaking love this store,” I know the dispensary is doing something right!
