ROLLING STONE GUIDE TO LEGAL POT: OREGON
Portland is home to the state’s most thoughtfully designed spots, where shops are putting as much thought into interior design as the inventory. Those hoping to make a name for themselves deeply consider how to craft an ambiance unique to their brand, and willing to pay for a million dollar buildout to make that happen.
Take Serra, known in Portland as “the Anthropologie of dispensaries,” where gold-framed glass cases display flower samples in hand-painted, Serra-blue ceramic dishes. Their house edible is a collaboration with local bean-to-bar chocolatier, Woodblock, and the accessory section includes the minimalist Summerland ceramic bongs from Los Angeles. At Jeffrey’s Joint, another Portland shop, locally-cured Olympia Provisions salami, San Pellegrino and Haribo gummies are available along with your cannabis merchandise.
