“It is always so refreshing to walk into a business where the owners and employees display passion and devotion to excellence in their trade. When you walk into Powell House Cannabis club it is apparent that these guys have the passion. Talking to them you realize that they are cannabis geeks of the best variety. From the friendly, knowledgeable service to the impressive amount of perfectly cured delicious flowers, many of which are done in house, these guys have all the marks of a great dispensary. There was not one jar of one single strain that I did not want to crawl into and rejoice in its deliciousness; all of them seemingly dusted by fairy dust. I always have plenty of medication so I only buy flower when I want something special and this will be the place I come next time that happens. The shop has a great feel to it , that semi-medical office look with the loving twist of cannabis culture.
In regards to their concentrate selection, they did not have too much to choose from. The BHO smelled great and was pretty standard at $25/gr donations. The one shatter that they did have was a great value, $15 and was comprised of 8 different strains (not a bad thing). They also had this grape ape caviar, nuggets marinated in kief that was pretty groovy. They said they will be getting some more shatters and other concentrates in soon so I will be back to check it out, if it is anything like their flower selection
The two guys who were in there took the time to talk with me about everything. It is imperative to make the patient feel welcome and at home and a huge part of that is not making us feel rushed. They have only been open two weeks but I think these guys are here to stay, something reinforced as they pointed to their state dispensary license on the wall, one of the first issued. If the cannabis industry is going to truly be accepted by the mainstream, corners cannot be cut. These guys do everything by the books and I applaud them for it. Thank you for providing safe access to patients.”
“I've had my green card for a couple years through several states AZ, CA, & now OR. Oregon was supposed to be the promised land for exceptional medicine, but most compassion clubs primarily stock grassy weed that is improperly cured. In a state known for great cannabis, I have been disappointed and I find it unacceptable to charge us top-shelf prices on mediocre flowers. I grow a premium organic garden myself, and there is no excuse not to have perfect flowers every time :-/
Then yesterday morning, I wander in on Powell, and it was like a breath of fresh air! Apparently the ownership is all brand new as of May 2014. The staff is knowledgable, the atmosphere was warm and inviting, almost more like a doctors office. The selection was massive, the flowers were very sugary across the board! The employees know better than to let people stick their hand into the medicine jar. I personally smoke well-over an ounce every week, and the four quarters I picked up were all stellar! Harlequin with high CBDs is sweet tasting and highly medicinal, I like mixing it with the Purple God Bud I got. According to them, it tested close to 30% THC, on three different testings! I dig the combo ;-) I also picked up some beautiful Black Cherry Soda a batch of Jack Herer that tastes perfect... I can't wait to pick up some more from them soon <3”
“Nice shop, very polished and swanky but a bit sterile and impersonal. I actually felt quite awkward, and that's the first time I've ever experienced that in a dispensary.
The strains were amazing and of excellent quality, but after medicating with it I found them to be a bit expensive for what I got.
The free pre-roll I received was oddly rolled, thick with no crutch and quite difficult to get good draw off of. It seems like this is a place opened by upscale out-of-towners.
I would say if you are a cannabis connoisseur and don't mind donating premium prices for premium product, this is the place for you, I however prefer a more welcoming and community focused atmosphere.”
Thank you for the review. Our ownership is comprised of 100% Oregonians. Born in Oregon, schooled in Oregon and has his entire family living in Oregon. We have been in the Cannabis industry for over a decade here in Oregon as well. All of our growers are proud Oregonians that have also lived here most of if not all of their lives. We strive to provide top quality, tested meds at the same price, if not cheaper than most dispensaries (our highest donation is only $10, and we have other flowers for $8 and $5, we even have $15 High End Shatter, lowest donation in Portland). Our community outreach is also very important to us to assure we educate OMMP card holders on the different ways to medicate. We are very sorry you were not 100% pleased with your experience. We hope we get the chance to provide a better experience next time! :)
“I was absolutely blown away by the meds, professionalism and sheer knowledge at Powell House. It is evident these fellas really did their homework concerning all aspects of our recently legitimized mmj market. This is how a medical dispensary should be. Rock on Powell House - see you on Saturday for your official opening!”
“Great new place very professional talked with them they have a long time experienced grower and the buds look awesome and smell better, will be one of my regulars very much recommend it, they are very adult and knowledgeable. Good job. They also are very helpful with the medicinal properties. Great.”
