Retailers We Love — Greenside Recreational

This November, we are especially thankful for Greenside Rec, who's been with us since our medical days.

They opened in 2010 as one of Seattle's first publicly advertised medical marijuana stores and have a strong history in the cannabis community. Today Greenside Rec is one of Washington State's top-selling shops.

Owners Dave Ahl and Seth Simpson have faced hurdles, like Instagram deletions and a DEA-issued zoning letter, but their persistence is relentless. "The industry is constantly evolving," Ahl said, "so it's exciting. You always have to be on your toes."

So where does Greenside see the future of cannabis? "It's going to be interesting to see how legalization pans out for the US and now Canada. The world is finally accepting marijuana as a commodity." 

Greenside Rec is located on Highway 99 in Des Moines. They're open Monday through Saturday 9 AM to 10 PM, and Sunday 10 AM to 8 PM. Make sure to sign up for their VIP program to get 10% off your purchase!
