Ponderosa Releaf – Peoria, AZ
Despite its location on the outskirts of Peoria, Arizona, Ponderosa Releaf was well worth the trip. Having opened its doors only a year ago, the dispensary planted its roots deep in the cannabis community and has since grown to meet its patients’ needs. The open space is quaint and cozy — perfect for authentic interactions — with a charming, minimalistic boutique design complemented by well-lit display cases, two concentrate coolers and concise product displays that make it easy to view everything they offer.
Large mason jars of premium flower on their shelves immediately caught my eye, featuring a tiered system of more than 20 strains like Blueberry Kush and 602 Headband from local farms mingled with flower from their personal small-batch grow; exclusive strains include Purple Punch, Joel’s Lemonade and Sweet Pink Pie, all labeled neatly on each jar’s copper lid. Their personalized fridges showcase a variety of impressive concentrates, live resins, terp sauces and diamonds from their elite laboratory, Canamo. I had more than enough strain-specific options to choose from, including some of my favorites like Super Silver Haze, AK-95 and Biker Kush. Coupled with a premium selection of accessories, edibles and vapes from other local suppliers such as Flourish, Korova, Dream Steam and more, it was easy to discover what I was looking for on their menu.
In addition to premium products, Ponderosa Releaf also has a crew of knowledgeable, professional budtenders with years of experience in the industry. “We have a great team of passionate people,” notes general manager Brian. “[They] understand the importance of customer care … [and] are focused on pleasing the patients with our high-quality products, featured at the best price points possible.”
