Western Cultured is excited to announce we are now for sale in Capitol Hill's newest shop, Ruckus!
After a year of uphill battles, Ruckus opened in early December. This petite pot shop looks more like an art installation with its antique knick-knacks and fits right into the Capitol Hill vibe. We spoke with Purchasing Director Bill Eddie, who said Ruckus is trying to encourage local artists to display their work. "Sam (the owner) is under the belief that art and cannabis go hand-in-hand," he said, "they're both transforming entities."
A big focus of Ruckus is transparency. As a company, it's important to shine a light on the companies they deal with. "It's important we know exactly what our growers are using," Bill said, "we don't just rely on the WSLCB, we go and find out ourselves."
What sets Ruckus apart from its Capitol Hill competition is their focus on growers. Ruckus holds the belief that growers matter more than the strain. "Currently the way the market is, the strain holds the value," Bill said, "but it's only a matter of time before the market realizes it's the grower who makes the difference."
Ruckus is located at 1465 E Republican Street and open seven days a week from 10 AM to 10 PM. Make sure to sign up for their loyalty program here!
