UPDATE: The industry is off and running. Marijuana stores in Seattle should have what you are looking for!
With only 10lbs of weed in stock, owner James Lathrop, is only allowing a maximum of 2 grams per customer. This way, many more people can partake in this historic occasion, before the cannabis retail store runs out.
So how long can this supply last? 10lbs of marijuana equates to just over 9,000 grams. If every customer purchases the 2 gram limit, Cannabis City will be able to serve more than 4500 customers. But according to public city offices, Seattle is expecting 15,000 people including local and national media. Some people may end up having to buy cannabis online instead.
Of course, not all 15,000 attendees will purchase pot; and of those who purchase, not all will walk away with the 2 gram limit. But for the sake of further exploration, let’s just say everyone purchases 1 gram of cannabis. If this is the case, Cannabis City could serve more than 9,000 customers. But most likely, the number of grams purchased will be an average between 1 and 2 grams. So, it is safe to say the number of customers served could be between 4,500 and 9,000. How long it takes to serve these customers depends on the number of employees and cash registers, the customers, how long the store remains open for the day, and more.
Lodo Wellness Center in Denver served about 1,000 customers the first day when Colorado opened its’ doors to the marijuana retail industry while Evergreen Apothecary in Denver served 400 customers. If Cannabis City was able to serve 1,000 customers a day, the initial supply of marijuana could run out in between four and a half days and 9 days. If the shop is only able to serve 4,500 people, the shop could sell out in between 11 and 22 days. But, keep in mind that Seattle is only opening one retail pot shop. In comparison, Denver opened approximately 35.
How many hours or days before Cannabis City sells out of weed? There are too many factors to tell for sure, but will not be surprised if the supply of weed in the store does not last until the end of the week.
