Located just off of Aurora Avenue, Ocean Greens is a unique little pot shop that is truly a gem.
Conveniently located in North Seattle.
Taking a day outta the city? Perhaps going to the coast? Or just hanging around North Seattle’s eccentric communities? This shop is worth a stop, it’ll enhance your day.
Head North on Aurora Avenue, you’ll pass by scenic Green Lake – and about 5 minutes further on your right sits this quaint recreational marijuana store. No bigger then somebody’s garage, Ocean Greens has a Cheers-like atmosphere – a few visits and everyone will know your name.
Built for instant interactions.
From the moment you walk in, Ocean Greens is designed to have the marijuana directly in your face (in the best way possible). There are several display cases housing products, and paraphernalia – but my favorite feature was the old school wooden armoire-like shelf space for all the various strains.
As mentioned above, the area of the shop is small – but this makes for a much more personal experience; you are deftly noticed, greeted, and helped.
Vast collection of product, vast deals on price.
Okay so, you can get a $199 ounce at Ocean Greens (before tax, which currently knocks it up to about $120). Usually I like to lead off with something other then numbers – but THAT… that is a good deal anywhere, tex. You could get 200/oz of Big Buddha Cheese, Grapefruit, Hawaiian Dutch, or Platinum Girl Scout Cookie (according to their online menu).
Asides from the bargains, Ocean Greens has a galaxy of various strains, craft edibles, concentrates, vape cartridges, topicals, and pre-rolls. You will find what you are looking for (and then some), with the ever present help of the friendly employees of course.
Sensi service with a smile.
On one of my first visits, a bud tender named Tony helped me out. He could tell I was after the deals that I had read about (on their website), and was quick to give me his preferences on which bargain strains were the best. We arrived at Critical Jack by Farmer J’s, and I concur with Tony that it was an excellent choice (for the potency, and for the price).
It’s bud tenders like Tony that make the recreational experience so gratifying – a guy getting paid to talk to me about weed. This is the true stimulus package, ladies and gentlemen – and it’s time to jump on board. A pot shop that is built from the ground up for customer interaction, no getting lost in the crowd here – and bulk prices that rival the black market.
Charming and frequently updated website.
Yes, the internets are quite import these days. It’s good to keep up with the ever hungry smartphone crowd, who will undoubtedly be searching for what additions you’ve made to your menu before they decide to visit. Ocean Greens does a great job at keeping their menu up to date, and informative. They take the time to write a description for each product, along with classification and testing results (if applicable). Might I mention the online menu is like, 5 pages long?
Something also to notice on oceangreensseattle.com is the Farms section, which gives a list of the producers that work in tandem with the shop. Giving this kind of website real estate to just the farmers is a smart move, and indeed shows a charismatic relationship between producer and shop.
At Ocean Greens, the time is always 4:20 (seriously, look at the clock they have outside the venue). Stop by this bright shop today, and have a solid conversation about the strain, concentrate, or edible you want in your life.
