When you’re shopping for cannabis, follow our advice below for the best experience.

Be A Shallow Shopper

Not all cannabis is equal. In Washington state, the way certain brands produce and process cannabis can be the difference between sitting on a shelf for a year or selling out in a single day. If the weed looks good and you can smell it through the bag or through the glass, buy it. When it comes to GreenRush, there really is no question. When retailers place their order, we package fresh cannabis flower or fresh cannabis extracts and send it right on over.

If the cannabis buds you see in the store are covered in trichomes or if the flowers feel or sound dense when you shake the container,  buy it. Even if the cannabis ends up being a poor smoke, you’ll at least know more about what you’re going for. Good looking weed with lower THC numbers is generally always a better situation than higher THC cannabis that is cheaper, more dry, and outdoor.

  • Who is allowed to enter?

    • Adults age 21 and over with a valid ID. 

  • How much can I buy?

    • Once a day, adults age 21 and older may purchase up to one ounce of usable marijuana (flower), 16 ounces of solid edibles, 72 ounces in liquid form, and 7 grams of concentrates.

  • Where can I consume this?

    • A private home would be your best bet. It is currently illegal to consume cannabis in view of the public.

  • Can I take this out of state?

    • No. It is illegal to bring cannabis outside of Washington State.

Adults 21 and over can purchase up to one ounce of usable cannabis flower, 16 ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, 72 ounces of cannabis drinkables, and 7 grams of cannabis concentrates.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.

Buying Dabs & Flower Cannabis at Satori – Fremont

Fremont has one of the best nightlife scenes in all of Seattle. Thousands of people frequent the area’s bars and venues for shows and other local entertainment. With so many tourists visiting the city’s 50+ pot shops, many shops have gotten lazy and their budtenders are focusing on selling cannabis that only has the “highest THC”.

Fremont doesn’t usually have many tourists besides those visiting the troll. When we’ve been in the area, we’ve been able to avoid those kinds of headaches thanks to the service provided by Have a Heart.

Now, Satori has taken over!

Although THC is a huge part of the cannabis purchasing equation, there is much more you should be looking for than just high percentages. When you’re in Washington or specifically in Fremont, THC doesn’t matter as much due to the inconsistencies of the testing at the state-certified labs. The labs still can’t seem to get things right which is why we spend so much time sharing updates with you here on the blog and also on our social media.

One of the first things you should be looking for at Satori – Fremont is who the actual experts are. You’ve got to find budtenders you can trust. Luckily, Satori has a solid medical marijuana background and each of their employees have extensive experience guiding consumers through the world of cannabis.

Find Budtenders You Trust

There really is no excuse for poor budtenders anymore. Satori has yet to show us a single bad experience and we’re excited to add their store into our partner network. People do have bad days sometimes but not really at Satori. They keep it chill, help you with some education, and always plug you with a solid product. It doesn’t hurt to ask for the most experienced budtender or to just simply ask for GreenRush. 😉

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo

It can be hard to identify good budtenders so we’ll help you cut through the fat. You’re going to need to be ok with asking some questions and using cannabis common sense. If a budtender can only describe weed as “fire” or “dank”, you might want to take what they say with a grain of salt. Would your waiter at a restaurant describe food that way?

Find someone who can communicate with you and other people. They need to be able to talk to you in a way that is professional and accurate. Being able to articulate strain knowledge in a digestible manner is huge and many stores overlook this valuable asset. Thankfully we can count on Satori to connect the dots for consumers.

Terpenes and THC both matter. When you’re talking with a budtender, ask them to tell you about flavor profiles, terpenes, and what genetics make up the strains you like. These types of questions will help you learn about what you like, identify what you don’t, and can help you increase the chance of having a better experience. You can’t look at the product outside of packaging in Washington, so budtenders are extra important to relay product information. Finding someone who knows all of this stuff is tricky. It takes time, patience, and you’ve got to be willing to be taught something new.

Terpenes > THC Numbers

Although THC packs the psychoactive effects, terpenes and THC combined dictates the specific effects strain by strain. Terpenes produce the aromas we smell and taste with cannabis. Citrus aromas come from terpenes myrcene and limonene. Hazes have terpinolene. Pine aromas come from pinene. Some of these terpenes help more THC cross the blood-brain barrier, which is why a strain can be more effective, despite having low THC numbers. If you find out what terpenes were present in the weed you like, you can shop specifically for that with other brands and strains.

Cannabis Brand Knowledge

There are over a thousand cannabis farms, labs, brands, and other businesses in Washington. Many of these companies offer more than one strain or product so it’s important to be up to date on each one. The majority of products can be found online via brand websites or social media. Satori doesn’t have digital assets created for their Fremont store but their other stores have menus that are probably similar to the one in Seattle. Satori utilizes their social media platforms to educate consumers on new products, current offerings, deals, plus much more.

Level Up Your Experience!

The overwhelming majority of people still don’t know a damn thing about cannabis. THC matters. Terpenes matter. Moisture, hand-trimming, and trichomes all matter! Until you know more about your cannabis and begin experiencing the different types of flavors and highs, you can really only learn so much. Go visit Satori, locate a budtender you vibe with, and take a leap of faith.

Visit Pot Stop In Fremont For GreenRush

Fremont is home to a crazy Solstice parade, lovely local restaurants and cafes, and a Google campus. There is so much that contributes to this historic part of Seattle that it is hard to pick and choose as to what exactly is our favorite. Legal cannabis is all over Seattle and thousands of employees working across the city consume cannabis just like the rest of us. With so many people living or working in Fremont, it makes sense that Green Rush would have to be available in the area.

When GreenRush was considering which weed stores to partner with, we had to consider everything from customer service to experience to location. Since Fremont and Seattle is such a diverse community and we pride ourselves on offering the best selection and the best prices, we knew we would have to spend extra time to show more love to those people living in Fremont, Ballard, and Greenwood.

Although Pot Stop doesn’t yet carry GreenRush flower, their store is offering various products from our concentrates line. If you are looking for a convenient and hassle-free experience, or if you’ve been searching for knowledgeable sales staff, visit Pot Stop in Fremont. Their team is more than capable of providing any level of cannabis consumer with a proper experience.

Fweedom’s Mountlake Terrace Store Has GreenRush’s Diamond Sauce

The Fweedom family is one that we’re very excited to be a part of. They’re currently carrying our ten-pound baby diamond sauce, which is arguably one of our hardest hitting dabs. This particular strain has already become known as a heavy hitter throughout the greater Snohomish Washington areas.

Now that we’ve created some strong relationships in Seattle, GreenRush is actively looking to connect with new dabbers. Make sure to visit Fweedom and ask your budtender to show you GreenRush. This will help give you a better understanding of what the exact batch looks like. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram or Facebook, and be sure to say hi if you ever see us around!

Since many of Fweedom’s frequent customers live in the Shoreline, Greenwood, Fremont, Ballard, Mountlake Terrace, Edmonds, UW, and Northgate areas, giving consumers the opportunity to dab on the best possible pesticide-free diamond sauce was a priority to our team.

One important factor to us expanding further throughout Seattle was picking select communities that needed a better variety of diamonds and terpene sauces. We wanted to share the love and spread high-quality dabs to as many people as possible.

We encourage you to stop by and pay another visit to check out our latest drop. If you’ve already visited their store, then you know just how great their customer service really is.

Photo Recap Of The 47th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival

The allure of spending the Memorial Day weekend in the city brought me to the 47th annual Northwest Folklife Festival. Free admission, fantastic food, and energy made my an unexpected revelrous time. Festivals double as a new plug to satisfy my musical needs. I fiend for new sounds even when some of my favorite rappers like Raz Simone and Grynch drop long-awaited projects.

I was joined by Joey ‘J-Ping’ Brabo and Taylor Hart, friends of GreenRush and members of Respect My Region. It’s not a day with the RMR crew without rolling something up and taking some dabs. After J-Ping and myself took some rosin dabs and dabs of GreenRush Mt. Rainier sugar wax,  we picked up Taylor from the Pot Stop in Fremont and headed towards Seattle Center.

Friday is the first day of the festival and is the most low-key. Many vendor spots are still open and the grounds are noticeably empty, but the stages and performers were still lively for the entire time we roamed through the art booths, clothes vendors, and food tents. Friday was basically spent eating our way through the festival grounds. The first stop was a Vietnamese stand offering Banh mi’s, chicken skewers, and a few other Vietnamese dishes.

A Bahn Mi is a sandwich, it’s common Vietnamese street food. It’s usually chicken or pork with cucumber, cilantro, carrots, broccoli sprouts, mayo, and served on a baguette. The bread was warm and crunchy. The chicken was tender, while the veggies added a fresh crunch to each bite. A great first meal for the weekend.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

While we walked around and enjoyed our Vietnamese food, one of the acts that caught my ear was Inner-City Medicine Show, a three-piece blues and jazz band. I’m a sucker for anything with a stand-up bass guitar.

My First Time At The Northwest Folklife Festival

After Inner-City Medicine Show played a couple songs, J-Ping introduced me to beignets. A beignet is a French pastry made from deep-fried choux pastry dough, that was made famous in New Orleans cafes.  They’re light and fluffy, covered in powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, and a fruit jelly.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife FestivalThis donut-crepe hybrid that was once unknown to me, is now one of my favorite pastries. The dough is airy and the powdered sugar is sweet and fluffy, the whole thing is like a delicious pillow. While the beignets settled, we meandered through the artists’ booths and munched on artisanal chocolates. Orange creme, salted caramel, espresso and cheesecake chocolates were all so rich, only one got completely finished. But the unique flavor experiences made them worth the money.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

One of my favorite northwest artists, Justin Hillgrove was there. other artists that I had work I enjoyed were Chris Paulsen’s pottery and Jesse Link’s paintings. Many of Link’s paintings are aquarium themed, my favorite was creepy red octopus tied up with a noose.

Aramis O. Hamer is the painter who painted the Rihanna painting below. The red and yellow colors spoke to me and I liked the old-school pin-up girl art style. Hamer confirmed this by stating the painting was inspired by Marilyn Monroe.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

Hamer talked about working with pot shops on various projects in the past, as well as expressing interest in live painting sessions, like when Perry Porter painted a mural during our Respect My Region’s 7 Year Anniversary. 

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

It wasn’t long before we continued to stuff food down our faces. I grabbed shrimp and mango taco while Taylor and J-Ping waited in another line.  It was one of the better seafood tacos I’ve had in my life. Delicious and juicy shrimp, fresh cilantro, red peppers, onions, and a chili mango vinaigrette. The corn tortilla was cooked perfectly and set the whole dish off.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife FestivalWhile I was eating my taco and taking pictures for this article, I caught the attention of one of the cooks in the neighboring noodle tent. A man who identified himself as ‘Moe Noodles,’ asked what I was taking pictures for. When I told him about RMR, he asked if he could be in the article, and I happily obliged. He was all smiles and started flexing his noodle cooking prowess for the camera. People like him have infectious energy and make my job much easier and less awkward.
Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

After visiting with Moe, J-Ping and Taylor greeted me with delicious treats dipped and drizzled in chocolate. T had strawberries dipped in white and milk chocolate, and J-Ping had a piece of cheesecake dipped in chocolate and topped with raspberries and white chocolate drizzle. I can’t speak for the cheesecake, but the strawberry dipped in white chocolate was one of the better things I tasted all weekend. The strawberry itself was so ripe and juicy it made me do a double take.

 

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

I went to the festival early by myself on Saturday. At the Mercer Street entrance, I was greeted by a group of dancers in lederhosen and a bandleader with an accordion. It was just nice listening to music I had no emotional connection to at all. I just stayed and went where my ears took me. My first day was lead by my stomach, but today was lead in my ears. Several times throughout the festival, the music made me felt like I was on the set of a Pirates of the Caribbean film.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

It’s not a festival in my book without some pork sliders. Tender pork, tangy barbeque sauce, slaw and a plain Hawaiian roll make for something that’s so simple you can make it at home but is delicious anywhere and always.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

All of the best performances were along the sidewalks and vendor booths. This is one of the best parts about Folklife, you don’t even have to use a schedule to have a great time. You can just let your senses guide you and you’re bound to have a great time.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

Everywhere you went there were happy families and people dancing. There was one drum circle outside of the armory that brought together a crowd of fifty or so people, some breaking into dance as the rest would circle around them and cheer them on like a scene from Stomp The Yard.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

This best act on a stage I saw in the two days was Tres Leches, a Mexican punk jam band. Two guitarists and a drummer would riff to an ecstatic crowd. They didn’t have a lot of energy on stage, but their music was rockin’. The Northwest Folklife Festival is free to attend, they just ask for a $10-$20 donation. Cheap admission lets me spend more money on food and tipping the artists that caught my attention. Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

Good Morning Bedlam was my favorite act I saw all weekend, and I caught them on my way out of the festival.  A midwestern folk band that had a lot of soul and emotion accompanying their sound.

Eating And Jamming My Way Through The Northwest Folklife Festival

Good Morning Bedlam was throwing down some heartfelt folk tunes and I was bummed they were getting drowned out by the stage behind them, so I decided to buy their album, and it was a pleasant thing to listen to on the drive home, it was not mad about the $10 I threw in their guitar case. I decided to grab a glazed lemon biscuit for the walk back to my car. It was fluffy and warm, while the glaze was sweet, light with a real lemon flavor.

All in all, I had a great time at the Northwest Folklife Festival. If I’m around Seattle for Memorial Weekend next year, you can bet I’ll be back. Next time, I’ll research and plan out my trip in advance to take advantage of the cultural theme instead of just winging it.
