When we first opened our doors back in 2011, we had high hopes—no pun intended—that one day we might become one of the West Coast’s—and Iowa’s!—favorite families of medical and recreational dispensaries. We knew it would take a lot of hard work and fortitude, and we also knew that our dispensary would be nothing without great vendors and partners.
That’s why we like to take time out to shine a spotlight on some of those great partners who keep our dispensaries stocked with incredibly fresh, locally produced and intriguing cannabis products. Because of them, we’re able to offer everything from classic and exotic flower to cutting-edge extracts and concentrates, to topicals, tinctures and yummy edibles.
Today’s featured guest is Lifted, a Tacoma-based company producing a unique range of incredibly fresh, locally grown flower.
Lifted Cannabis: Focus Beginning With the Seed
Headquartered in Tacoma at the southern end of Puget Sound, Lifted encompasses an indoor growing facility in the old Nalley Fine Foods pickle factory. The facility was once so central to the community that it lent its name—Nalley Valley—to the area. But the factory had shut its doors back in 2011, and many in the community feared they’d lost a vital link to their history.
Now the building is back in operation, once again producing delicious green goods. Utilizing precise temperature and humidity controls, Lifted grows a wide variety of strains at any one time, running the gamut from indica to sativa to hybrid varieties. A master grower is on-site every day, ensuring that seedlings grow up in a clean and safe environment, swaddled in filtered air and treated with organic pesticides only as a last resort.
The results speak for themselves: uncommonly flavorful and pure cannabis flower we’re proud to offer at our Washington dispensaries.
Lifted Cannabis: Some of Our Favorite Strains
Like all natural products, availability varies considerably over time. But some of our favorite Lifted products in stock right now include the following.
Talk about sticky! These bulbous little buds resemble nothing more than Christmas trees, and after sampling these lemony, cakey treats you may feel as though Xmas has come early! Be advised: This is a heavy experience; those who overindulge in this sweet hybrid strain may find themselves glued to the couch for an extended period of time.
Cookies & Cream
Awarded first place in the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup, this sweet and vanilla-scented hybrid combines Starfighter and Girl Scout Cookie phenotypes for a powerful experience beloved by many. That said, it’s best to take it slow with this one, as it can easily send you into sedative territory.
You’ll notice the aroma of gasoline first, but the headrushing energy follows soon after. Described by its fans as “focused” and “euphoric,” it’s a great choice for daylight hours. And as with many other hybrids, the indica-leaning effects come on over time, leaving you with a generous and relaxing body high.
