Another retail marijuana store has come to Ballard; Stash Pot Shop just had their grand opening over the weekend. Stash (4912 17th Ave NW) aims to be as connected as possible to the community, evident in their motto: Community, Culture, Cannabis.
According to High Above Seattle, Stash received thousands of applicants for “budtenders,” but just a few made the cut. “They are artists, analysts, customer-service experts, cannabis users… they are a huge part of what makes Stash Pot Shop so great,” they write. High Above Seattle reports that the owners hope their store helps to break the stigma surrounding cannabis, with an aim to, “welcome everyone with high-quality products, a sophisticated shop layout, and friendly faces.”
Stash joins roughly 20 retail pot shops in Seattle, with just a handful in the Ballard area.
