“First off, it's cool they advertise not only their menu but their prices. The prices here are definitely lower than other shops on the Eastside, and the selection of flower is very good. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Convenient freeway access (just a couple blocks from the off-ramp.) Good choice for regulars and those who want to check out this whole "legal smoke" thing.
Tried the Shiatsu Kush: Takes a little while to kick in, but a mellow and relaxed high, and certainly enough head buzz to make the world interesting. The relaxation brings a subtle weightless feeling to the torso and lower body -- a bit of floaty fun when walking. Overall, uplifting to body and mind. Good mood enhancer with undertones of "I think I'd like to hug somebody." Very mild taste for vaping. It was, however, on the dry side... this can be attributed to growing conditions and overdone drying prior to packaging. For greenhouse-grown, there is no excuse, but don't be put off by it here. What's missing is that added bit of moisture that makes smoke mellower during combustion. A Boveda packet is included if you want to use it. It's designed to emit moisture, so you store it with the herb to re-moisturize. But when VAPING herb this soft-tasting, it's not necessary. Also, the main weight loss for newly-grown flower (that ends up dry) is moisture as opposed to cannabinoids. That means you're getting more of the active ingredients (compared to non-dry herb) because it's sold by weight. Anyway, thumbs up on Shiatsu Kush, and the Novel Tree in Bellevue.
“Can't say enough positive things. The entire staff (for what I assume are obvious reasons) are incredibly passionate about their job. So much in fact they will guide you to exactly what you are looking for - even if you have no idea what anything is called.
I would trust them to guide my own grandmother to find what she needed and she's never smoked a day in her life. ”
“The vibes from the whole place we're just great from beginning. such a calm amd relaxed environment with chill and helpful employees, not to mention their great array of medicine availabe. great visit to shop.”
“The friendly and knowledgeable staff really make this a great shop for a first timer but the fantastic product line that ranges from calm and relaxing to not moving for the next 3 hours are what keeps me going back. The decor is simplistic yet beautiful and its complemented by wonderful glass work, tad bit out of my price range but stunning to look at none the less. If you have yet to be into a store or your just looking for a better place on the east side then the Novel tree should be on the top of your list to check out!”
“Visited "The Novel Tree" for the first time this evening and was impressed with the place. Great vibe and appearance, and a very friendly staff. Pretty good list of strains at really good prices...some absolutely stunning glassware, too. As far as I'm concerned, I've found my eastside retail store. I've been to the other place in downtown Bellevue, but it's not as good as "the Novel Tree". Period.”
