We’ve been reviewing strains from local recreational marijuana shops for some months now, and it’s time we ventured into the practice of reviewing the shops themselves. So, instead of having a strain review this week – HAS is going to review Seattle area shop Green-Theory.
Located in the heart of old Bellevue, WA.
Green-Theory can be found on mainstreet, several blocks from both the 405 freeway and within walking distance to local shops. There are several parking spots in front, with additional parking in the back of the shop.
Aesthetically designed, and artfully presented.
From the moment you enter Green-Theory, you are heartily welcomed. There is a greeting room, where an employee validates that you are 21 years of age – from there, we enter the boutique itself.
The marijuana cabinets are wooden, juxtaposed against sleek green walls and decorated countertops. The main impression this author got was “fresh”. This isn’t some tinted window trailer shop alongside a strip mall, Green-Theory strives (and succeeds) to make the experience of buying marijuana elegant, accessible, and most importantly bountiful.
A menagerie of carefully chosen flowers, concentrates, pre-rolls, and edibles.
Looking at todays menu, this marijuana boutique currently has over 25 strains of flower ranging from 8 different producers – not including the edibles, concentrates and pre-rolls readily available. It’s clear to see that variety of product is important to Green-Theory, as well as variety of price. The cost differential will certainly please the budget shopper alongside the connoisseur (I am both, mutually and exclusively, at times).
Daily deals so you can beat that triple tax, and price matching.
You know what else pleases me? Daily deals on marijuana.
- Holiday Promotion (ends Dec. 31st) – 40% off Dutch Brothers Farms: Seattle Cough (1g-4g)
- Every Monday receive 35% OFF all regular priced Cannabis items with a current Washington State Medical Marijuana Authorization Card
- Every Tuesday receive 20% OFF High Altitude strains: OG Kush, Obama Kush, Lavender
- Every Friday receive 30% OFF Blewett Pass Farms products
Yeah, you need to go out and get yourself some discounted Seattle Cough right now. That strain is phenomenal, I guarantee it (read our review of Seattle Cough).
In terms of matching competitor’s price: Green-Theory will match verified current pricing on all items from other Washington I-502 Retail Stores.
Friendly knowledgable employees.
From the moment you enter Green-Theory, you are chauffeured around the marijuana emporium by a staff member. Don’t be shy, these folks are here to help – and know the product they are selling like the back of their hand. The strains within the cases are displayed atop river stones, and altogether presented in a visually appealing manner.
In my experience with Green-Theory, I’ll generally discuss several things with my assigned budtender: we’ll go over price, if the product comes in multiple gram sizes, overall THC percent, and sativa vs. indica. The staff have always been accommodating, knowledgeable, and certainly helpful.
Selling cannabis comes with a community responsibility.
Green-Theory’s mission is to sell fantastic product, provide exemplary customer service, and to respect and nourish the community around them. In a quote from their website:
The community can be assured that Green-Theory will adhere to all relevant laws and regulations, restrict access to minors and remain secure, safe and discrete. We will contribute to the local economy and set aside a portion of our revenue for local philanthropies.
This is an honorable move, and one that will hopefully solidify Green-Theory as a respected downtown Bellevue business.
A user friendly website with ample information.
The boutique’s website (www.green-theory.com) is an excellent resource for menu items, daily deals, and more. There is also information regarding a “cannabis club” you can sign up for (called Green-Elite), in which you’ll have access to a “Green-Theory rewards program”, exclusive news, call in phone ordering, invites to VIP events, and members only promotions. Looks to me like you have to go in store to actually sign up for Green-Elite, but I’ll be sure to ask next time I’m there.
Next time you’re in Bellevue, whether new or seasoned with marijuana, make sure to check out Green-Theory – a fantastic marijuana boutique: located at 10697 MAIN ST SUITE 2, Bellevue, WA 98004 – or reach them by phone at (425)-502-7033.
