One of NW Cannabis’ two locations (the other one is at White Center, is an also an excellent access point with plenty of great deals and wonderful vendors), Galaxy is a wonderland of cannabis treats.
One thing that distinguishes the two NW Cannabis is that while most such markets are only open on weekends, Galaxy (telephone 206.420.4065) is open 7 days a week (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.), and the White Center location (206.420.4823) keeps the same hours five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday.
It feels almost like a marijuana mini-mall, complete with a dab bar where you can relax, take a load off your feet, enjoy a cold water, soda, or juice, and choose from a tasty menu of butane-extracted hash oils including some spectacular Alaskan ThunderFuck that rocked my world. (New patients get a free complimentary dab.)
And speaking of new patients, you’ll be treated like royalty. Make sure to get your “NEW” sticker, and vendors will give you free dabs, half-gram samples of flower, and cut you special deals on flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, and supplies.
At White Center, don’t miss the Farm Therapeutics booth, where you can find brownies with 160 milligrams of THC for $10, or 320-milligram THC brownies for $20 apiece (note to the uninitiated: these are high dose medibles, not for novices, but rather for serious pain patients and those with high tolerances). Farm Therapeutics also has potent Frooty cereal treats for $10.
If you see the Top Rankin’ Herbs & Oils booth at Galaxy, try some of the tasty, natural solvent-free hashish from Ras Scooby. And you don’t want to miss the Sour Candy (if you want sativa) or Hollywood OG (if you want indica) from Ming… these flowers are merciless on your pain and nausea, in the best possible way.
Also at Galaxy, Julie’s Market (run by Julie “She Bakes!!” Guterson), has a dazzling selection of medicated brownies, pizza, butter, seasonings, cookies, tea, and Cannabis Cup-winning fudge. If you stop by Julie’s booth, she’ll fix you up with a free cup of invigorating infused tea; tell her Toke Signals sent you.
There are plenty of friendly faces at both locations of NW Cannabis Market, and dab bars are at both of them. It’s a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, and the presence of so many farmer/vendors in one space gives patients great bargaining empowerment.
Keep on eye on NW Cannabis Market — according to owner Mike Keysor, who’s seen the market through good times and bad since 2011, a third location will be opening soon north of Seattle in unincorporated King County, to be followed not long afterward by a fourth at a location soon to be announced.
You’ll need Washington state ID and a WA medical marijuana authorization to enter.
