“It was cool to be in and out so fast at a place seemed very efficient. This was my first time buying recreational weed but the weed itself was a big disappointment. I bought some blue dream which was totally dry and didn't really have much flavor. Does anyone know is this dry odorless product just typical of recreational weed? If so I might go back to dealers, really bummed.”
“One of the my favorite rec locations in Washington. Great deals on a variety of flower. Friendly budtenders who don't rush you along ... this is the kind of rec store that you use to show people how nice rec stores can be.”
“Visited Uncle Ike's Today, and got the Royal treatment, very nice store, good setup, helpful staff! We enjoyed our So-Cal Kush, and Gorilla Glue buds that we picked up there :) Will look forward to visiting the next time we are in Seattle!”
“This was the very first recreational store that I visited and I must say, I won't be returning. I have been an avid consumer of cannabis for over 10 years. I wound up feeling very rushed, felt as though I was being talked to like a child ( as though my knowledge of flowers and concentrates wasn't up to par ) and had a serious case of buyers remorse. The only pleasant part of the experience was the kind gentleman checking ID's out front. That was the only smile I saw during my entire stay at Uncle Ike's, that's kind of sad...
The flowers that I purchased looked PHENOMENAL but I hated the fact that I couldn't smell or even see the bud up close in a jar or anything prior to purchase. I trusted my instinct and purchased some Maui, Animal Cookies and some Jack. When I'm telling you that the buds looked great, I'm not kidding. I also purchased some "wax" from them, the strain was .5g Flux Capacitor and 1g of Skywalker and trust me…they suck! I think it was some sort of trim run because both were dark brown and I would not have purchased this oil if I could see it. I trusted the budtender and I feel like I was told one thing and received another.
I was so excited to grind up the flowers after my poor wax gave me more of a headache than a high and my D Nail smelled like shit for a good 2 minutes while it burned off the residual oil that I refused to smoke. The flowers ground up nicely and even had a bit of a nice aromatic flavor, I was excited. One hit in a bowl and I knew I had basically been robbed. Each strain tasted like there were literally ZERO terps in them. Each strain still sits in there respective packages and I refuse to smoke the product. Now I know that Uncle Ike's does not produce their own cannabis but if this is the type of product that their growers and producers provide on a regular basis then I will never go back. I know that Uncle Ike's is one of the most popular stores in the Seattle area, but there are plenty of other options for the seasoned smoker to visit to receive the type of customer service and product that they deserve. Let the novice smoker and the 9-5'er stay loyal to Uncle Ike's, I'll take my business elsewhere.”
“I find it rather unfortunate that this place is as popular as it is given that they are trying to end medical marijuana in the state of Washington. Instead of pushing for regulations to be adopted by the medical program, they are calling for the outright end of it.
One of the reasons they cite for this is that these medical dispensaries are costing the state money in the form of tax revenue (even though they are medical patients that would have those taxes refunded).
They also claim that concentrates are "the crack of weed" and that anything with more than 15% isn't medically necessary.
However they gladly sell these same items while saying medical dispensaries should be closed for doing the same.
The owner of Uncle Ike's and his workers (and their friends/family) also fluff up reviews here and on facebook. They also flag and ban accounts on Facebook that leave them negative reviews or ask questions they are uncomfortable with answering.
Don't just take my word for it, here is that letter they sent:
I've repeatedly been told that the owner doesn't believe in everything in this letter ( even though he put his company's name on it), which certainly doesn't put my worries at ease.
I've also asked if they ever sent a follow-up explaining that they don't agree with the original letter. That has never been responded to.”
