Quality product and customer service is a standard at Apex Cannabis in Otis Orchards, Washington. On my first visit, I was immediately greeted with a welcome fit for a loyal patron of 25 years. Located off busy Trent Ave, Apex Cannabis awaits all of-age cannabis consumers.
A modern beacon within the industrial district of Otis Orchards, Apex Cannabis’ building has a beautiful discreetness to the exterior. The soft wood welcomes you with the warmth of a cabin in the woods. Once inside, the cedar-lined interior boasts multiple climate-controlled glass cases, all filled with impressive products for you to discover. With a non-UV lighting system, the cannabis contained in jars or Mylar won’t be affected by the cases’ light source, so your weed stays good and tight, not dry and flakey.
When Troy and Stacey Peterson sold their heavy equipment business to venture into recreational cannabis, there was a direct line between their daily duties. Troy procures the product, while simultaneously building out the technological and financial aspects of the business. Stacey oversees the daily operations of Apex, while also controlling the marketing/branding and compliance. Both locations, Otis Orchards and Moses Lake, have only been open since September of 2016, yet Apex has been making leaps and bounds to get the top of the retail echelon.
“We sample products, then check out the farm before they get the stamp of approval,” says Stacey. I got warm and fuzzy inside upon hearing her words. As a consumer, there’s nothing better than learning your retail store sees and approves everything that goes into producing a fresh nug. Having flower on the shelves by Blue Roots, Hang Roots and Lopez and Orr shows that the Apex purchasing team has the consumer in mind. For us oil heads, you can grab Dabstract, Oleum, Blue Roots and Odo Oil. For good ol’ munchie Monday, grab Journeyman tarts, Ethos tinctures or some Gaga Juicy chews. Product menus are updated daily in the store, on the Apex website and on Leafly.
