Right along the edge of Old Town and the Pearl Arts District sits Broadway Cannabis Market, a new dispensary to hit the west side of Portland. Guests are greeted promptly as they enter the airy showroom filled with natural light, which is also ADA accessible for those in need. The store looks like a pricey retailer, but there isn’t a single gram over $10.80 after tax – making this dispensary ideal for grad students like myself, or simply those on a tight weed budget.
BCM is budget-strain galore, with not a ton of top shelf product, but excellent options for the bargain hunter. They have a vast amount of flower with various price breaks ranging from $4 up to a max of $10.80 (after tax) per gram. BCM has a bonafide rewards program, with every dollar earning you a point. After you have accrued 250 points, you get a $25 store credit you can apply to anything.
You’ll find a large edible selection with a variety of beverage options. If you leave a review on BCM, you can get a complimentary $1 pre-roll or $2 (50mg) in-house cookie. Not only do they have budget bud, but BCM also has plenty of affordable edibles on deck.
As any concentrate connoisseur could only hope, CannaVida thankfully keeps all of their dabbable products stored away in a fridge. Amongst the shelves I found Altered Alchemy’s live resin available for as low as $13/g, and Happy Cabbage’s six-star aficionado hash rosin clocking in at $72/g. Additionally, there were a ton of amazing flavors from White Label Extracts, NW Kind and Flapjax Extracts. In a separate display case, the racks were lined with a wide variety of vape cartridges, including Bobsled Extracts, Select and Artifact Extracts.
Upon opening the doors, you are met with a friendly and eager to help staff that’s filled with insight and suggestions. Alternatively, CannaVida offers tablets where you can browse their full menu, then pick, pack and create a cart. Can’t remember that fire hash you smoked last month? Create an account and track your purchases to see what you have previously enjoyed! This shop is very easy on the eyes with an extremely user-friendly system. With their waiting area including a few comfy couches and complimentary tea, you are made to feel right at home. Incredible photographs from Steve Hubbard can be found along the walls, with Rad Glass scattered throughout the store!
With oversight for high-quality standards, outstanding product selection, and an amazing overall layout, it’s safe to say we will be stopping by to load up on goodies the next time our team is passing through. Stop by soon and see for yourself!
White Crush | Killer Green Bud Farms
(Dozidoz x WiFi 43 x Orange Crush)
White Crush certainly has the bag appeal of Orange Crush, but with heavier trichome production from the WiFi 43. White Crush is a predominantly THC-heavy strain, with a significant amount of CBG – a cannabinoid with promising anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The smoke was smooth, but the flavor was mild. The effect was pleasantly sedative, ideal for an evening toke when you want to wind down.
$10.80/g, 27.66% THC, .07% CBD, 0.18% CBG
Owner Tony Birch is one of the friendly faces you’ll find behind the counter.
