On Dec. 15, 2016, the Arctic Herbery opened its doors to recreational cannabis customers in Anchorage, Alaska, as reported by KTUU-TV.
“To see this actually happen after all this time through all the ups and downs and the hoops I had to jump through, to actually be here has been stimulating,” said Bryant Thorp, owner of Arctic Herbery.
According to the dispensary’s website, it currently has Afghan Kush, Blueberry and Pineapple Chunk in stock, all of which come from Black Rapids, a cultivator in the North Pole. Each customer is limited to 2.5 grams, costing $50.
Thorp hopes the 11 pounds of cannabis he currently has to sell lasts through the weekend, as reported by KTVA. The city’s second dispensary, Alaska Fireweed, is slated to open this Saturday.
