A Greener Today – Shoreline, WA
I enter the doorway of A Greener Today’s Shoreline location and a scruffy man peers at me through bulletproof plexiglass. He catches sight of something on my person and enthusiastically remarks, “Oh, you’re wearing an Ashram bracelet. Me, too! It’s from a time in my life when I was finding myself…ID, please!” You might also meet general operations manager Garett Lancel budtending or greeting, as he likes to stay involved in all aspects of the business. As he double-checks my Pennsylvania ID, he tells me to prepare for passage through a sacred portal.
A Greener Today feels less like a rec shop and more like a prominent dealer’s private stash, and the budtenders are friendly librarians who stay up to date on all the books. I felt comfortable. After an in-depth questioning, my budtender threw out a generous slew of 15-20 strains to peruse. The selection features some of the best small operations you won’t find anywhere else; getting one particularly famous but reclusive grower on board apparently required sleeping on their porch to reach a negotiation. They go the extra mile for cannabis you want to smoke.
Black Market Theology
A Greener Today once grew and sold its own medically-licensed product. Those days ended with I-502, but the focus on health remains. Today, they source a wide range of edible, concentrate and flower products. Garett continually refers to A Greener Today’s customer approach as a “theology.” They elevate the importance of you, the customer, to a level of reverence: “Wow, you are here. How can we help?”
