With the finalization of Alaska’s recreational cannabis regulations, High Bush Buds proudly opened their dispensary doors on January 1st, 2017, as a natural extension of the founders’ experience owning the neighborhood head shop for sixteen years. Serving the Soldotna community for nearly two decades, it seemed natural to expand from one type of smoking to the next, and the founder of High Bush Buds was thrilled to open a retail store where visitors could explore the wonders of cannabis. Starting with a bang, High Bush Buds serves an average of nearly 300 customers a day when fully stocked on marijuana products, and are proud to be the cheapest dispensary in Alaska for the highest quality of product.
Soldotna’s High Bush Buds sets themselves apart from other dispensaries in numerous ways, specializing in a variety of cannabis goods all priced at reasonably low rates. Striving to be the friendly neighborhood pot shop, High Bush Buds’ dispensary staff weighs their cannabis to order, never pre-packaging flower or bud and storing their goods in a humidified and air-conditioned vault to retain the marijuana’s natural quality. As Alaska’s vendors expand in size and production, High Bush Buds plans on offering an extensive cannabis selection, and always will walk their valued retail customers through each and every item.
High Bush Buds stocks between 10-20 flower strains on average, all grown from the highest-quality recreational cannabis cultivators in Alaska with the lowest prices around in Soldotna and beyond. Also carrying a range of concentrates and expanding into vape cartridges and pens, High Bush Buds particularly specializes in their flower selection. Their Alaskan-native Rick Original is a dispensary retail favorite, with many people enjoying their Platinum Huckleberry cookie strain as well. Located adjacent to a long-standing tobacco shop, dispensary customers need not travel far to find an excellent selection of glass products, rolling papers, bongs, dabbing rigs and much more. All marijuana goods undergo lab testing by State of Alaska approved testing before landing on their retail shelves.
High Bush Buds currently only handles cash transactions, and proudly offers significantly reduced cannabis prices to all of their retail store visitors. With marijuana goods marked a good 20-30% cheaper than other Alaska dispensaries, High Bush Buds prioritizes keeping their high quality cannabis goods as affordable as possible for retail guests. They love connecting with dispensary customers through their website, Instagram, Facebook or over the phone.
