Seattle Cannabis Co. is directly next to Sodo Deli, which is a huge mark in its favor. Placing a pot shop next to one of the city's best Reubens is a smart move. This weed shop is also in the same building as Studio 7, home to some of the city's finest metal shows (and the occasional Andre Nickatina visit!).
What sets them apart from every other pot shop out there? I called and asked.
Andre Emil, a "host" who does a little bit of everything, told me that it's their customer service. Now, every pot shop everywhere will tell you that, but Seattle Cannabis Co. did actually win Best Staff at DOPE Magazine's 2015 Industry Awards.
That's what we try to do here, be the best budtenders and people we can, he told me. He was also well-informed on the intricacies of new medical cannabis laws, which isn't something I can say for the average budtender. Though he wasn't a certified MMJ consultant (there's always a manager on duty who is), the store is medically endorsed, and he added that they pride themselves on serving patients frustrated by their experience at other retail stores.
Even the angriest customer leaves happy, he said. TOBIAS COUGHLIN-BOGUE
