Meet the House of Grass Medical Consultants

medical dispensary Vancouver Washington

The term “medical marijuana” is one that Washingtonians and Oregonians may have heard less since the legalization and availability of recreational cannabis. Why bother getting your medical card when it is so easy to walk into a recreational cannabis shop to purchase your flower and concentrates? We think it’s important for people to understand, though it may be easier, those who are self-diagnosing or self-treating medical conditions with recreational cannabis may be missing out on the benefits of legitimately having a medical cannabis recommendation.

There has been a lot gray area and confusion surrounding medical marijuana, which has likely prevented many people from seeking medical recommendations. Prior to Initiative 502, there were strictly medical delivery services that many people (especially older demographics) felt uneasy about. And, if you weren’t connected to the cannabis community in any way, it may have been difficult to get this information, or embarrassing to ask around. With a little more wiggle room as the stigma of cannabis lessens, many physicians, with the ability to recommend medicinal cannabis, are now making more mindful decisions when treating their patients, and are oftentimes forgoing the more harmful and addictive pharmaceutical drugs. What a world we live in, right? Rewind to ten years ago, and it seems amazing that we’ve made it this far.

For now, only a small handful of people and recreational dispensaries in the Vancouver area have received their medical endorsements, including our very own Katie G. and Nyssa M. (pictured above) at Mary Jane’s House of Grass. Nyssa and Katie both participated in a twenty-hour program to receive their medical endorsement, which gives them an advantage in the industry. Mary Jane’s could be considered one of the pioneers in this movement, as more shops will likely be moving forward in the same direction. Nyssa mentions that, “everyone is going to have to comply,” to stay current in the competitive and evolving industry. More and more, we are seeing this symbiotic relationship between the medical and recreational cannabis worlds, ultimately creating a more simplified process for medical patients. With more clarity and assistance available to patients, people will likely be treating their ailments more effectively than they had been previously.

Following a medical cannabis recommendation, patients, including those under 21 years-old and under 18 years-old (when accompanied by a parent, guardian, or caregiver) can now visit House of Grass, where Katie and Nyssa will be able to get them started in the process of purchasing their medicine. With proof of a physician’s recommendation, Nyssa or Katie can create a legitimate medical card and will add the customers to the state database. Not only will patients have access to medical-grade and recreational cannabis products including (but not limited to) flower, oils, topicals, and edibles – they will also be able to get more than the state recreational limits and will receive a local sales tax exemption.

Most importantly, this endorsement will allow Katie and Nyssa at House of Grass to give medical suggestions about cannabis products that may work better for certain medical conditions. It will strengthen the bond you have with your bud tender while allowing you to make intelligent and intuitive decisions about your health. Amy, Co-Owner at Mary Jane’s House of Grass, says that there are benefits to shopping at a store that’s medically endorsed because “they have a vast knowledge of the cannabis products that goes beyond just getting high.”

So come visit Katie or Nyssa at our House of Grass dispensary in Vancouver to hear their recommendations and find something to suit your needs.

Mannequin Challenge, Accepted

mary jane's house of grass sunburst background, black friday deals

You may have heard of, and even seen, the Mannequin Challenge videos going around. The Mannequin Challenge equates to a group of people, performing everyday ordinary tasks (mostly), that freeze like mannequins while a videographer walks through the frozen crowd of people to take video of them in their frozen state. The resulting video is crazy cool simply because it’s definitely a challenge to be that still for that long.

Mary Jane’s House of Grass decided to accept the challenge and give you a peek into the world of the recreational pot shop. We had a blast doing this, and we hope you enjoy the whole 59 seconds of it. More to come!

This Just In! Legal Beverages

legal beverages, mirth provisions, rainier cherry, lemon ginger, CBD, THC, drinks, edibles, sodas, tonics, cannabis infused

 

The House of Grass team is ecstatic to bring you this line of delicious infused beverages. What do we love so much about Legal?

  • 100% natural. Mirth Provisions, makers of Legal Beverages, take pride in their products and only use natural ingredients – sourced locally whenever possible. Needless to say, the flavor is off the hook. You can really tell that the flavor is from natural ingredients. You can feel confident in knowing that the delicious Rainier Cherry flavor you’re tasting is from real, locally grown, Rainier cherries. Yum!
  • Lightly carbonated. These drinks are only lightly carbonated so that you can enjoy the full flavor experience with just a little tickle of bubbles. No over-carbonated burps or full feeling.
  • They come in 4 infusion sizes. It’s so nice to have control over your experience, isn’t it? With Legal Beverages, you have total control when you choose a drink. Choose a 10mg drink for a lower tolerance person who still wants to drink an entire tonic, or choose the 80mg drink to share, or for those with a high tolerance. Sizes available: 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg/bottle.
  • Consistency. When choosing a cannabis product, consistency is extremely important. Legal Beverages have mastered the art of infusion so that you will have a consistent experience every single time you enjoy a tonic. It’s easy to choose your experience: Pomegranate Power Tonic for an uplifting sativa high, Lemon Ginger Dream Tonic for a super-chill indica high, Rainier Cherry Joy Tonic for a blissed-out hybrid high, or Cranberry CBD for deep body relaxation that lasts and lasts.

Legal doesn’t need to be mixed with or added to anything. When you buy a bottle, all you need to do is pop the cap and enjoy.

Bottom line? We can’t get enough of these tonics, and we think you’ll feel the same. Come visit us and see what else is new.

The New Symbol of Recreational Marijuana

web_symbolofrecSome years ago the world of medical marijuana adopted a green cross as their universal symbol. It was a great way to easily spot a dispensary. A large green cross, like the ever-familiar and welcoming Red Cross we all know, but green. It made it easy to advertise as well as easy to recognize. It has since become the beacon to MMJ users.

With recreational marijuana being a bold new frontier, it lacks a universal symbol to beckon to recreational users. We simply haven’t had the time in the marketplace yet to build that recognition. Recreational cannabis needs a symbol, similar to the cross, simple in design and easy to spot at a quick glance. Oh, and it needs to be green.

In Washington State, medical will soon merge with recreational with the passing of House Bill 5052 in 2015. That adds to the urgency of the need for a new symbol, because as a recreational retail establishment, we’re still not allowed by law to use the cross. That may change, but we don’t know.

In the limiting world of I-502 signage, we have to get creative. So here is the symbol that could help our new Washington I-502 stores combat that problem. It’s the green asterisk (*). Simple. Bold. Easy to spot from the road as you’re searching for the new pot shop in your area.

So keep an eye out for this symbol. It will lead you to good things.
