Herbn Elements – Seattle, WA

Herbn Elements has been a staple in the cannabis market since it opened in April 2015 due to their commitment to quality in all aspects of their business, from customer service to the products they carry. Just a short distance from the hustle of I-5 in a building once used in the 1962 World’s Fair, Herbn Elements’ interior has a clean, inviting feel with brightly lit glass cases flanked by dark wood counters. “We want people to come in and feel comfortable talking about cannabis, because it was illegal for so long. This is our chance to educate people,” remarks general manager Andrea Sligar.

Their signs say “Your Neighborhood Joint,” but according to Sligar, it’s more than just a slogan: “Ultimately, it’s about finding the right thing for the customer so they are satisfied.” The shelves are packed with products from joints to topicals in order to provide a wide assortment of options for their diverse clientele. Since new products are constantly being developed and certain trends take off, their budtenders are always talking to customers to determine which canna-fads to focus on. Besides quality, Herbn Elements decides to carry products based on consistency and its value for their customers.

The People

Complementing their fantastic array of cannabis, Herbn Elements also has an impressive budtender staff adept at making the entire shopping experience feel effortless. “We want our budtenders to have a willingness to help the customer first and foremost,” notes Sligar. The environment of the store reflects this attitude; all the budtenders are friendly and upfront about their opinions. It felt like they really knew what they were talking about, and were genuinely interested in finding the right product for me rather than just making a sale. From start to finish, Herbn Elements was an easy shopping experience that any customer will enjoy.

With the trend of legalization, he hopes to realize this dream sooner rather than later.
