Vela Reviews

  • “Wow-- Visiting Vela was the highlight of a recent trip to Seattle. Everyone was exceptionally friendly, and getting to see the grow room and extraction lab was really fun. I even got to meet the grower of the delicious Dutch Treat that I purchased. I wanted to purchase some edibles before a concert, and the budtender suggested the Goodship pastilles. They were portioned out so I could microdose and achieve the perfect high. The Strawberry Cough vape cartridge I bought totally falls on the "Vela spectrum" and is exactly what I was looking for. As someone who lives in a state where prohibition is still going strong, visiting Vela exceeded anything I could have imagined. Keep up the good work!!”

  • “I had a fantastic first experience at Vela. From check in to check out, the staff was kind and attentive. The store itself is beautiful, and probably the first place I'd take my parents or grandparents should they ever want to see a cannabis shop for themselves. I'll definitely be back soon!”

  • “A beautiful store with, more importantly, knowledgable and friendly staff. They carry amazing concentrates, including CO2-processed and CBD.”

  • “Dissapointed in this place to be honest, and all down to a bud-tender that barley gave me the time of day. Nice space and cool to see behind the curtain of their process, and good product, but dealing with an oddly reluctant staff member was just weird. Granted it was before noon but questions were not particularly answered and he assumed I knew a lot more about their strains then I did. All in all, I felt like I was wasting his time. Will go elsewhere. ”

  • “What enticed me to drive from my Shoreline stomping grounds to SODO was a 50% off sale on an item I regularly use. Needless to say that I stocked up. The customer service at Vela was outstanding and the complimentary mini-backpack with Vela's name on it made me appreciate the store even more. Also, the grow room that can be seen through the glass windows is a nice touch. I have recommended this store to my friends and will definitely be back.”

  • “Great location, has a grow and oil extraction facility you can see through giant windows. This is where I brought my dad when he visited Seattle the first time and wanted to learn more about legal cannabis.”

  • “I have never been in a marijuana shop. I do not smoke. I came in for edibles. I knew I wanted Dr. Moxey mints and something to help me sleep. I learned a lot from the person who helped me. I'll be back - it's really pretty and modern. I felt comfortable.”

  • “Vela has the best bud tender staff in Sodo; super knowledgeable and friendly. (Even the doorman is nice, which is a rarity. I never got the intimidating "Hey man, why are you looking at my girl" vibe that some of the other pot shops radiate). The prices are just a smidgen higher than the rest of the shops in the area but as a few other reviews stated, "you get what you pay for". They also house an awesome rewards program, granting 10 percent off your 2nd purchase. There selection is not that massive, but that is actually a great thing for my indecisive, bipolar brain (it takes me 20 minutes to pick out laundry soap, so you could imagine what happens when I have 122 different indicas to choose from). I'll be back #ArnieSchwartz”

  • “The guides are very knowledgeable and mine recommended that I mix Frida with AC-DC for a customizable cbd-thc ratio. I'd be comfortable sending someone that's new to cannabis here.”
