Farma is the place to send anyone, whether they're 21 or 91, who doesn’t know what they want. This shop’s collection of high-end, in-house growers from Green Bodhi and Resin Ranchers means the selection is only the best. With thoughtful branding meant to mask the childproof containers required by the state, this dispensary has given us nothing that doesn’t look like a gift.
If a scientist opened a cannabis dispensary, this would be it. In this case, a weed scientist did open up a dispensary, from which the smoking crowd has benefited greatly. When cannabis first legalized, and testing regulations were still very much in flux, in fear of newbies buying unsafe product, many local leaders reached out to me begging me to write something so that “no one shopped anywhere but Farma.” This shop’s carefully curated collection of farms, processors and edible makers have been vetted for organic, ethical practices, and the staff has managed to maintain a special, particularly welcoming and helpful budtender culture. In-store shopping, curbside pick-up and delivery to a residential Portland address available.
