Uncle Ike’s will become Seattle’s second recreational cannabis retail outlet on Tuesday when it opens at 2310 East Union Street. According to owner Ian Eisenberg, he received a license to open the shop from the state’s Liquor Control Board earlier this week, and says they should be ready to sell cannabis to anyone 21 and older come Tuesday.
Uncle Ike’s will be open Tuesdays through Sundays from noon to 7PM, and will be closed on Mondays. Some of the strains they plan to carry on opening day includes Lemon Kush, Snoop’s Dream and Pineberry.
Currently, Cannabis City, which opened on July 8th alongside five other outlets statewide, is the only recreational cannabis store in Seattle, a city of over half a million people. In total, over 300 cannabis outlets have been approved statewide by the Liquor Control Board, though unfortunately most remain unopened, mostly due to a shortage in supply from the limited number of producers.
Other cities that currently have cannabis outlets include Spokane, Tacoma and Bellingham. As of earlier this month, a total of 32 outlets have reported sales statewide.
