Locals Canna House – Spokane, WA
As my right foot breaks the plane of outside to inside at Locals Canna House, I immediately notice display cases filled with products from a wide range of consumption methods. I spot shelves of locally-sourced glass just as my ears catch a song by the Rolling Stones: it’s a personal favorite, “Gimme Shelter.” I start to feel a vibe of complete comfort while standing among the bustling circulation of customers. On the back wall, encased with regional, repurposed wood from a family-owned barn, is a digital display of available inventory.
I gaze upon a few hand-crafted wood tables filled with sniff jars from local growers and accompanying strain information. Locals prides itself in serving up the best local, hand-crafted cannabis, which is evident in their diverse line of products from your everyday, cost-effective flower to more connoisseur products. Bella Donna, Premier Cannabis, Dab Dudes, Hi Guys, THCBD and GLW are just a few of their vendors.
With a staff of highly qualified budtenders, you’ll glean a deep wealth of knowledge if you stand in earshot of their conversations; from potency, growing techniques, flower structure, effects and terpene profiles, this team’s education is obvious. This standalone precision is standard for Locals Canna House, and with Jon Brindle leading the crew, he touches upon all aspects of cannabis horticulture—and beyond. “Craft cannabis is what we are all about,” he tells me, a mantra that’s evident in every aspect of the shop.
