PRODUCTS: 4/5

While the product selection here isn’t huge, we found value in every category that we look for. Fat Panda and Artizen dominate the shelves for flower. Evergreen Herbal and Honu for edibles, and a variety of tinctures and topicals from Green Revolution. We were happy to see RSO/FECO at only $22/gram, a variety of cartridges, distillates and dabs, and a solid strain selection. Not overwhelming, but clearly a cultivated selection, it’s clear that they sell what they like and enjoy selling it!

HISTORY & VALUES: 5/5

Station 420 was the first recreational Cannabis store to open in Union Gap, and is family owned and operated. The father-son team lives on site, with a glass blowing studio behind the retail store and a dedicated, small team of budtenders. Station 420 pushed to bring Cannabis to the Yakima Valley. Now the Cannabis stores proliferate and we recognize and appreciate their passion for the plant.

“FOR OUR CLIENTS TODAY, WE ARE WORKING FROM A SOLID AND HEARTFELT MOTIVATION TO DO OUR BEST FOR THOSE WE SERVE. AS WILL BE OBVIOUS WHEN YOU COME VISIT US, WE ARE NOT YOUR AVERAGE STORE”

BUDTENDER & SPECIALS: 4/5

We found the budtenders to be warm and friendly at Station 420, in keeping with the small-town vibe the resonated from inside the shop. The store is also the only medically endorsed location in town that prints patient cards, and they clearly value patients as well as their recreational customers. With daily and weekly specials on a variety of products, you’ll get friendly service and fair pricing any day of the week.

ENVIRONMENT & VIBE: 5/5

With a mix between a comfortable small head shop and cozy pot stop, it’s instantly welcoming when walking into the store. With a steady stream of locals mixed with travelers passing through the area, the first pot shop has a history and feel to it that we really liked. From the display cases filled with glass made on site to the hot kiln out back turning out new pieces, it’s the type of shop where you might run into the owners, or buy your weed from them directly, and we love that.

OVERALL: 18/20

Whether you live locally in Eastern Washington or are passing through as a tourist, Station 420 is worth stopping in at. As the owner Adam says, who lost his sister to chronic pain, Cannabis can benefit everyone medicinally, and recreationally. “For our clients today, we are working from a solid and heartfelt motivation to do our best for those we serve. As will be obvious when you come visit us, we are not your average store,” he said. “Whether recreational or pain issues, we want to provide only high quality and purpose appropriate products. Our goal is to treat each client like family, we instil this with all of our staff. My sister could have benefited from what we do. We want to make sure you benefit.”
