AK Joint is owned and operated by an Anchorage local, born and raised in Alaska. After growing a family and completing a nursing degree at the University of Anchorage Alaska, the founder began to work with people in hospice and terminally ill patients. While working, the founder witnessed first-hand the need for safe access to legal cannabis products and wanted to be part of the marijuana movement in Alaska.
The founder of AK Joint believes some of the most skilled master growers in the world are in Alaska and established AK Joint to bring that quality to Anchorage’s cannabis community. Although Alaska may have progressive marijuana laws, AK Joint understands not all adult users are comfortable with being seen entering a cannabis dispensary. The founder sought a space that was both convenient and private and found the perfect spot tucked away building in South Anchorage.
No one is a novice after visiting AK Joint. Their team of budtenders are dedicated to education as much as they are quality products. Anchorage’s 21 and up cannabis users are welcomed to ask questions about any of their products or even book a private appointment to explore the menu with the added security of a completely confidential retail experience. AK Joint hosts community outreach as well, such as Weed 101 classes that cover topics from cooking with cannabis to growing your own.
AK Joint offers a selection of 24 unique strains, all cultivated with the best practices and lab tested to ensure only clean and potent products line its shelves. Adult users can beef up their gear as well, AK Joint provides a large selection of glass and vaping accessories. The AK Joint menu offers plenty to look forward to. The dispensary team plans on stocking in-house flowers by spring 2018, cultivated by AK Joint’s very own master grower. 2019 looks pretty high, too. AK Joint aims to debut their brand of edibles the following year.
This South Anchorage adult-use cannabis dispensary is nestled in the south end of Schoon Street behind Schlotzsky’s Deli on Dimond Blvd. The compassionate team at AK Joint is happy to connect recreational cannabis users throughout Anchorage to premium cannabis products. Those in Bird Creek, Girdwood, and Indian neighborhoods are moments away from this cannabis dispensary.
Anchorage is Alaska’s largest city and offers a wealth of nature spots to hike and explore. Anchorage is better thought of as a gateway to the wilderness, and with gorgeous mountains like Chugach, Kenai, and Talkeetna, it’s easy to see why. Anchorage offers cultural education, too. Residents and visitors can check out the Alaska Native Heritage Center, where patrons will find replicas of Alaska’s indigenous peoples’ dwellings, traditional crafts, and stage dances to enjoy. In addition to honoring Alaska’s indigenous peoples, Anchorage protects their indigenous animals as well. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a refuge for sick, wounded, or orphaned animals where visitors have the chance to see Anchorage’s native creatures up close.

Stopped to snag half a dozen half gram j’s for a Cinco de Mayo party tonight. Named off the 6 I wanted, and asked the budtender if any of them were by two specific cultivators I wish to avoid & he told me none of the ones I chose were by either cultivator. I should’ve double checked them before I left rather than taking his word for it. Three of the six were by the two I wish to avoid (as they’re seems to be a cure issue with bth cultivators, and it hurts my chest to smoke their stuff). Bummer.
That's terrible. I'm sorry to hear that you purchased something that you didn't want. I'll look into how the curing processes correlates with chest pain and speak with the cultivators. I've never heard of this. It's NO secret here who the cultivator is for the different strains. It's printed under the strain name on the menu AND it's on the product label. Even though we carry over 35 different strains we buy from only a handful of quality cultivators so our staff is well aware of who grows which strain. Hopefully your Cinco De Mayo turned out fine.

The 3 for specials are nice. Trim as expected for the price so no surprise. Clearly labels. Would be better if they updated their menu so you don’t have to make the trip to be told they are sold out.
My bad Boofie. Our new POS system should help keep Weedmaps updated. Sincere apologies.
on your menu it would be helpful if you had descriptions of your product. whether it helps with pain or melt in the couch. and honestly that is what's stopping me from visiting your store.
I feel you. The State of Alaska PROHIBITS all retailers from making any medical claims like "helps with pain" for marijuana products. I would if it were legal, but it's not. I do have have detailed descriptions about the type of high, flavor, etc. for each strain. In fact one does say "melt into the couch".

From the moment you walk in you ask your self, am I really seeing this? The staff are 110% in your corner to help make the best choice for your day or vacation in Alaska. If you are looking for the None hipster feel and the Alaska is your home and ours, these are the people to see over and over again.

Nice place to walk into. Didn’t like the buds I was sold. I looked at their jars of product but was sold pre-packaged buds that were trim at best. When i get a bag full of “buds” that are half stem and smaller than a dime Im being duped. Wont go back. Too many shops concentrating on better quality and better product descriptions (e.g. buds, trim, shake) to go back and take a chance.
We do have a nice place to walk into, Thanks. You did get a few things wrong in your review. Let me explain; We don't display our product in "jars" so you couldn't have "looked at their jars of product". We are full deli style ( i.e. we weigh all buds out in front of your eyes at time of purchase) we will even let customers choose the buds they get. Aside from prerolls, nothing here is prepackaged, so "was sold pre-packaged buds that were trim at best" is just false. Is it possible that you are thinking of another store? I think so. We carry excellent buds from quality cultivators. Thanks for giving me a chance to explain our process and products to our friends on Weedmaps. Have a great day!
Just an all around amazing little shop. Great deals on prerogative and the quality was outstanding!
Made time to drive out there. I really like the strain I got! It was DKG it was very tasty. A great prices. Trying to make time to get back out that side
It’s like walking into a prohibition era speak easy, nicely finished wood and metal everywhere with a comfortably dim atmosphere. The shop is tucked at the end of a commercial strip which is another great reason to shop there for those looking to be less flashy. Product is always quality, humidity is controlled and everything is visible for inspection. Staff and owners are great, friendly and knowledgeable. This place is about growing an industry not making a quick buck, and I appreciate that. Even the trim flower mix prerolls are top notch. They also stock a small but diverse selection of pens, pipes, other gadgets and accessories. I can’t wait for your guys cultivation to get rolling. They also have some of the best prices in town which is just gravy on top everything else, but who doesn’t like gravy?
I love gravy! :) Thanks for checking us out and taking the time to write this awesome review.
Great quality smoke, very nice folks behind the counter, a very cool atmosphere. My wife and I enjoy our visits and the product we come home with. Off the main drag but worthy of the effort to find the shop.
This place is great! It’s in kind of a weird spot but it’s worth extra few minutes to get there, it might not be the cheapest place in town but the quality definitely makes up for it! Highly recommend!
Yep, we're just 2 blocks off Dimond Blvd. Our tucked away spot gives us and our customers a little privacy. Thanks for the review and the recommendation! We hope to see you again.
