How and when did your dispensary start up?
Two life-long friends hanging out one evening, discussing what we wanted to do with ourselves, and Green Gratitude was and has been a go since then.
What’s the story behind the name of your shop?
Green Gratitude; it’s about being thankful. It’s a part of how we live and react to life and its elements.
What does your collective offer clients that they can’t find anywhere else? What do you specialize in, if anything? 1) $20, 1/8ths daily, tax included, 2) our understanding of the industry going hand-in-hand with customer service, our budtenders have knowledge of the product at hand.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a dispensary? Biggest joys?
Industry changes! Inspections and so forth . . . very difficult, but when you complete and can run a fully compliant business, following stringent guidelines, it feels good and it’s a feeling of accomplishment.
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your dispensary?
We are open 365 days a year, no matter the weather conditions. If your regular shop is closed, you can always count on us!
If someone wanted to open a dispensary and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Do your homework and expect blizzard-like conditional changes. We opened our doors in 2014 and the changes haven’t stopped. Expect a few years of set up.
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the MJ/MMJ community?
To always be your “go to” cannabis dispensary.
