“A couple scoops of Kush Sorbet is perfect for dessert, whether you take them as a midday snack or right after dinner.”
From the iconic fan leaves to the potent trichomes, the weed plant that we partake in is complex. A little bit of understanding of cannabis biology is helpful to find which strains, products, and farms are right for you. So to help with that, we at Tacoma House of Cannabis put together a brief introduction to Cannabis biology.
“Take a drag of this with your morning coffee! Chocolate Marshmellows is a sublime mix of sweet, cakey chocolate, and a serene high ideal for sunshine and solitude.”
In light of the recent spread of the COVID-19 virus and associated regulations on public behavior, we at House of Cannabis wanted to let you know about the steps we are taking to ensure the safety of our customers and staff during this a-typical moment.
The Governor has declared cannabis retail stores and grow/process operations essential. What does this mean?
Well, this is a privilege for society. It means we need to follow the rules. Maintain social spacing, don’t make needless trips, buy enough to last a while when you do venture out, and combine trips for eligible household members to minimize exposure, if possible.
For House of Cannabis stores, we are taking several steps to minimize risk to our employees, as well as the general public. We continue to sanitize frequently. All budtenders are wearing gloves 100% of the time, and we are deploying masks as this week progresses. All shifts have disposable masks, or washable, reusable masks at this moment. Every employee is being issued protective equipment to protect you, and them, should someone be non-symptomatic. As the COVID-19 Coronavirus infection appears quite virulent, I would personally avoid shopping at retail establishments that aren’t taking sanitation and personal barriers very seriously. I assure you that we, at House of Cannabis, are taking this health threat very seriously.
As this situation develops, we remain reactive to the orders of the Governor. He is the singular ultimate authority on if we stay open. It also may become necessary to reduce our hours at any or all of our three stores. If a situation develops locally that creates an environment that means we can’t safely serve the public, we will close our doors.
The State of Washington has just opened up curbside service to all adults 21+ given COVID-19 concerns, and we will be evaluating how to implement that, if possible. If you know what you want from our menu, please feel free to place an online order, and call the store when you arrive if you don’t want to come in.
We are leveraging our partnerships with other cannabis businesses, cannabis professionals, and cannabis trade associations in order to keep up with 1) industry-wide coronavirus best practices and 2) maintain an up-to-date understanding of national and state restrictions on small businesses that could potentially impact our ability to operate.
If there is any sign that we will need to close up shop, we are committed to communicating this to you, our customers, as soon as we find out. You have been good to us over the years, and so we are committed to being communicative and transparent with all of you through all of this.
Our Requests to Our Customers:
Thank you for your continued patronage at House of Cannabis. We look forward to continuing to serve you during this difficult time. If you have any questions about how we are dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Stay safe and sane out there!

Our vendors are starting to issue their own responses to COVID-19 / Coronavirus. Where possible, I have saved PDFs and linked them for download, below:
Our friends at The Happy Cannabis just sweetened our shelves with some must haves for all the Sativa lovers out there. When you talk about companies that have seriously dialed in their strain selection The Happy Cannabis is always one that comes to mind.
My current go-to from these folks is their wonderful Caesar Strain. This sneaky stoney sativa came upon my radar last summer whilst hanging it on the shelves for the first time. The dank and loud level of aroma that was coming out of these guys’ Caesar strain is rivaled by some of the most pungent gorilla glue’s that I’ve ever smelled or seen.
It probably took me like 15 minutes to complete what would have taken less than 1 minutes worth of hanging normal 1/8ths on the shelf, purely cause of the admiration and cooing that went on during the task. In my defense you cannot expect a stoner in their right mind to not absolutely worship this shit seeing it for their first time. Shortly after I purchased one of those very 1/8ths, the rest is history. Caesar stays on my short list.
