5 Best Marijuana Dispensaries in Washington State (Updated 2019 Review!)

The best dispensaries near me


Rising to the top of the proverbial totem pole as one of the biggest weed-centric states in the grand ole’ US of A, Washington state has been dominating headlines on a global level with its revolutionary influence on the cannabis industry.

Dispensaries have been popping up, left, right, and center, and apart from that, the state has been blossoming with mind-blowing and innovative marijuana cultivators – ones that are developing diverse marijuana strains, better growing methods, and even cannabis-centered education centers for those looking to turn their weed knowledge into a lucrative career (good luck with that, btw).

And of course, you can pick up some of Washington’s tastiest, most THC (or CBD)-packed nuggets by stopping into one of their many state-of-the-art recreational dispensaries (as long you are over the age of 21, of course).

In this article, we pick out what are, in our opinion, the best marijuana dispensaries in Washington state. There are a lot of sketchy little ‘holes-in-the-wall’ out there in the Evergreen State, but there are a lot of absolute gold mines as well – and these represent the best of the bunch.
