Vancouver, WA — High End Market Place, a recreational and medical marijuana dispensary located in the Uptown Village neighborhood at 19th and Broadway, was one of the first retail stores to get a medical endorsement from the Department of Health in July 2016.
Now, a year later, High End Market Place has registered over 1,000 patients into the new DOH system, allowing patients all across Southwest Washington the ability to access the medical cannabis they need. If patients choose to be entered into the database, they are able to purchase cannabis products sales tax-free, grow 6-15 plants based on physician’s recommendation, purchase up to 3x the current recreational limit, and have access to certain medical-only products.
Because of the quality of the product H.E.M.P. sells, and our focus on responsibly produced and processed sourced cannabis, we offer patients that shop with us an additional 11.6% off their total purchase, so that the cannabis products are even more accessible to those that need them most. In addition to offering special discounts to patients, High End Market Place also has a majority of employees trained as Medical Marijuana consultants. In order to become a consultant, High End employees were required to take a state approved (DOH and LCB approved) 20 hour training course, become CPR certified, and submit required documentation to the Washington State Department of Health. In addition, High End staff are able to make medically-focused recommendations on products that may help patients and individuals suffering from qualifying conditions.
“This training is beneficial on so many levels, and our goal is to ensure that our staff are prepared and educated as this new medical marijuana program progresses” co-owner Morgan Hutchinson explains, “…and as new research is conducted, and as rules and regulations change both for retail establishments and for patients and their rights, it is vital to stay updated through the most reliable sources. The health and wellness of our customers and patients is our top priority, and through the products we sell, and our ability to communicate the benefits of those products through this DOH medical endorsement, we are making a positive impact on the lives of those struggling through debilitating medical conditions. We are proud to be the go-to source for the highest grade medicinal cannabis products in the market, and are excited to continue to inform patients we serve in Southwest Washington as medical marijuana becomes more significant than ever before.”
