We can now accept debit and credit cards through an LCB approved processor, with a super low $1 charge. We’ve also dropped our ATM fees to just $0.50 per withdrawal!
Now you don’t have to be nickel-ed and dime-d to death by fees from both the weed store, and an out of network debit transaction. Some stories we have heard from customers are hair raising, including up to $8.50 in additional fees to the list price of the packages purchased.
Part of the reason we had not be able to bring card services to you to this point was the cost prohibitive fee that ALL the other weed stores charge you when you purchase. Rather than sharing the load, they pass along all those fees to you to maximize their profit.
At House of Cannabis, we think a little differently about things because we are in this for the long game as the little hometown chain that could. From our roots in Medical Cannabis at places like Tacoma Holistic Collective, Cannatonics Society, and Rainier Xpress (Olympia), to the House of Cannabis chain in Washington State legal weed (Tacoma, Tonasket, and Carlton), we are FROM Tacoma. #LocallyOwned and #VeteranOwned, we care about you. We care about our city.
In the last week the media has produced some fear mongering
headlines involving an investigation of an Oregon death linked to vaping.
Articles on various websites in the last couple days are not
shying away from pointing the finger at vape products purchased at a legal pot
shop to be potentially linked to the cause of the death of the middle-aged
I call these fear-driven headlines blasphemy!
If you ask me the only connection one could make to a
hazardous cannabis vape oil is one that would be sourced from the black market.
I was talking to some family members from California that
shop around at some of the flea market style cannabis bodegas. We were
specifically talking about certain vendors selling rip off vape cartridges that
either didn’t work or didn’t get you high. My cousin was jokingly talking about
them refilling old cartridges with hot dog water and ripping people off.
Frequently people come into Tacoma House of Cannabis asking
about refilling empty vape carts with oil that they thinned out with substances
like MCT oil or something else they purchased from the internet or at a tobacco
I always tell people that this is a bad idea. Not just
because the filaments could burn out in the vape cartridge and leave your oil
trapped, but because cutting/thinning pure cannabis oil is not natural and one
should never smoke a thinning agent.
The fear mongering that the various media outlets were doing
didn’t take any of the black-market aspect into consideration.
NPR published an article that did a really good job breaking
down what could have been the source of the health hazard.
In the NPR article they interviewed New York State Health
Commissioner Howard Zucker and picked his brain on the issues of what could be
the source of the health hazard.
Zucker says that Vitamin E oil was very prevalent in about
13 of the patient-submitted cartridges that they analyzed.
Vitamin E oil could be used as a topical or a dietary supplement but vaping it could be very harmful. When it is “inhaled deep in the lung, [it] can cause problems,” Zucker tells NPR.
Vitamin E oil is not an approved additive per the rules and regulations of the New York medical marijuana program, and the cartridges that contained it appeared to be black market products purchased off the street, says Zucker.
Its reported that officials in Oregon say that the man that
died of severe pulmonary illness had used a vape product purchased at one of Oregon’s
state regulated marijuana stores.
If Oregon officials are going to make a connection of this
death to the product he purchased in a legal marijuana store in their report, they
had better also try to make a connection to any and everything that could have hindered
this man’s lungs in the previous year.
I say that this type of press release is fear mongering and
attempt to smear the name of legal cannabis. And that is totally not cool man.
Those that are still worried from the slough of stories that
came out this week, my only advice would be to never purchase any marijuana product
from anyone that is not a state licensed marijuana store. But c’mon man, especially
a vape cart.
Legal, recreational marijuana brings all types of consumers
out of the woodworks. I get the pleasure of serving weed to a vast variety of
people, some more entertaining than others.
No joke, some days it seems like Dave Chappelle scripted our
consumers straight out of his movie, Half-Baked, when he montages all the
different types of stoners they sell to. One demographic of consumer that is
always fun to sell to is the guy or gal looking to spice it up in the bedroom. We’re
going to call them the ‘aphrodisiac stoner,’ if I were to try to fit the Half-Baked
‘different types of stoner’ mold.
We got some fresh drops this week, one strain specifically standing
out for that aphrodisiac stoner. Mt. Baker Gardens (M.B.G.) grows a strain
called Candyland which may be just the thing for all those individuals looking
to get high and hot and heavy. M.B.G. brought us three strains Candyland, Lemon
Sorbet Birthday Cake, and Sin Mint Cookies.
If you’re asking me, the Candyland takes the cake (and the
cookies). The look of the Candyland buds are immaculate. Coated in crystals and
trichomes, with hints of a beautiful purple and light green variegated throughout
the jar, Candyland is a cross between Granddaddy Purple and Platinum Girl Scout
Most growers and weed heads alike call Candyland a strong sativa
with the classic happy, euphoric, and energetic type of high to go along with
the sweet, earthy, and citrus-y flavors and smells. I have heard from many
different strain reviews, read ups, and consumer feedback that Granddaddy Purple
can be the source of the arousal part of the high. The beauty of M.B.G.’s
Candyland is the energetic/happy effect that goes right along with it.
So you heard it first here folks. We got the stuff to get
the birds singing and the bees buzzing, just ask for M.B.G.’s Candyland.
“Most potent shit in the store,” “that pressure,” “gassy,” “straight drugs,” all these statements have been used to describe the strain Dragon by Luv8. It was never quoted by a quasi-famous musician until Tacoma House of Cannabis’ very own budtender Red, aka Redhead, had this to say in his latest release about smoking Dragon by Luv8, “Smoking on that dragon and that shit got me on Saturn.”
Boy is he not lying, smoking a blunt of Dragon left me the most stoned I’ve been in a long-ass time, It leaves you stoned like its the first time you smoked weed… every freaking time! In Redhead’s latest music video, One Of A Kind, Redhead gave praise to the strain with the “got me on Saturn” lyric. The Director ChaseFade and producers Beezo and Say Zay did an awesome job highlighting and capturing the half ounce in the video, which is a safe bet to say they were smoking during the filming. We screen captured it for yawl’s ease of viewing, but don’t forget to checkout the full video linked below.
And hell, let’s get our boy Redhead paid, spark up some Dragon, let the advertisement run its course, and enjoy the Official Music Video filmed at Tacoma’s very own Cheney Stadium.
Luv8 literally just left the shop, so stay tuned and we’ll
get that Dragon put back up on the shelves. We Usually carry the Dragon in
ounce, half-ounces, eighths, single-grams, and 2-pack joints. So whatever your
fancy we got you, come down and smoke that shit that the rappers are smoking,
and we’ll see you on Saturn.
Ladies and gentlemen
step no further, we have heard your shouts and pleas. After searching far and
wide, over rivers and mountains, valleys and peninsulas. I’m talking we had to
hit up everybody in our little black weed book, my friends we have it.
The $45.00 ounce of flower is back.
Zenhorse is hooking us up. Today August 2, 2019 and later next week Zenhorse will be filling a number of orders tagged especially for us. After a series of harvests of what I am guessing is light deprivation outdoor buds, or maybe some outdoor autoflower buds. These guys came through. I just checked them out before clocking out for the day and people, these thins look damn good for $45.00. The strains are Blue Dream and Columbian with a surprising trichome content and equally impressive bud structure.
Tacoma House of Cannabis will be re-stocked on that bottom dollar ounce so get it while the getting is good. These things go fast.
P.S. I still stand by my article published earlier this month on the $40 ounce and how it will be gone in the future. What we got from our friends at Zenhorse is what I’m calling an anomaly in the market, but like, uh… that’s just my opinion man.
