Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Say goodbye to drab, institutional interiors and trippy accoutrements—top-tier designers are making the face of marijuana more beautiful, smart, and inviting

Since California voters passed a proposition to allow the use of medical marijuana in 1996, 30 more states and Washington, D.C., have followed suit. Of those, nine have also legalized it for recreational use. In October of this year, Canada became the second country to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide. (Uruguay did so in 2013.) And with it’s emergence from the shadows of the law, marijuana is getting a total makeover.

Peek inside a Seattle cannabis tour

Peek inside a Seattle cannabis tour

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

There are monastic brewery adventures in Germany and Belgium, and winery tours from Napa Valley to Bordeaux. Welsh cheese treks and Vietnamese street food jaunts beckon the more adventurous. And now, there are cannabis tours, too.

In at least nine states and the District of Colombia, consenting adults over 21 can purchase marijuana for recreational use. (Finding a place to use it is another hurdle, but more on that later.) So the idea of a different sort of vacation was appealing.

Like many adventures these days, mine began with an internet search: “Seattle marijuana tours.”

Seattle’s entertaining Kush Tours popped up — a 3½-hour adventure for $150 plus an Amtrak train ride to get me there. They also offer advice on 420-friendly places to stay, such as the Bacon Mansion, a B&B on Capitol Hill, as well as hotels with smoke-friendly courtyards, if not smoke-friendly rooms. The Bacon Mansion is a convenient 15-minute walk from the new train line that runs from the airport to the University of Washington, with stops in the SoDo — south of downtown — neighborhood.

The tour rendezvous spot was Diego Pellicer, a high-end SoDo marijuana store that looks like a fancy jewelry design boutique, all glitzy glass and tiny sparkles on display. It was super fancy, with gold-wrapped “canagar” Cohiba-sized joints for easily more than a grand, if you really want to get decadent, but offerings for bargain shoppers, as well.

The 12 Best Marijuana Dispensaries in Seattle

The 12 Best Marijuana Dispensaries in Seattle

Seattle has lots and lots of pot. Here are the best marijuana dispensaries in Seattle.

By 
Seattle is one of America’s principal weed cities. Medical dispensaries have populated this waterfront town for decades (nearly as long as California), and Seattle rivals Denver for having the country’s longest-standing recreational pot scene.

It’s also about as natural as any place in America to indulge. The city sits between two ranges of mountains, is bordered by both saltwater and freshwater, and is filled with an ample amount of culture, great cafes, and restaurants. So the question is not if you should smoke weed in Seattle but where are you going to get weed in Seattle?

With over 50 retail dispensaries, there is plenty of opportunity to score some greens. And thanks to Washington’s robust legal market, Seattle has some of the country’s cheapest weed with an incredible amount of product offerings.

Let’s go shopping.

Diego Pellicer
SoDo
The Shop That Calls Itself Premium

The people behind Diego Pellicer really, really want you to know that their store is fancy. They call themselves “the world’s most luxurious” retail shop, they compare themselves to powerhouse brands like Godiva and Starbucks, and their SoDo store is decked out with enough Spanish tiles and Greek Revivalist columns to fill a small spa.

Even though Diego Pellicer might not be as important as it makes itself out to seem, the store itself is actually one of Seattle’s better places to find weed supplies. The shop stocks many of the states best farms (including the elusive Leira Cannagars) at surprisingly fair prices.
