Artic Herbery is now open to the Anchorage community.
All prices listed are after the Anchorage recreational 5% Marijuana tax.
I found this store a bit creepy - I felt like I was doing something illegal just trying to get in the door. Parking was a bit tough and the store section was very cramped. I know they have a grow-op going, too, so that's part of the crampiness, but I think they should have built a little bit bigger selling space. I felt very rushed to get in/out because I didn't want to hold up other people. The guys (it was 100% men) really knew their stuff, but I didn't like the overly male atmosphere and would have preferred at least one female staff. I did like that it was essentially one-to-one staff to customer. I would go back if I needed to, but it's not on my side of the city and kind of out of the way. The edibles were great but very expensive: Cannabanana bread was almost $85+ for 10 doses, which seemed steep but maybe that's the way edibles will be all over the city?
Knowledgable, friendly staff. Family owned and operated, which is cool. Supply is a hassle for everyone in the state until the cultivators can sell their product, so can't fault Arctic Herbery for not having product all the time. They were the first and seem to be working really hard to do it right. My favorite shop.
This place may be out of weed most of the time, but when you manage to get your hands on some it's the best legal weed in town. Hopefully they'll get it together soon and have weed more often, like, wayyy more often. They are supposed to be a weed store after all.
No weed just edibles that were worthless felt ripped off come on if your going to open a store at least figure out how to supply it
I bought a pre-roll of Northern Lights and it was good stuff. It said it was 11% but it got me higher quicker than bud i bought at another shop that was 14%. The staff was friendly. The shop isn't as nice as other places but i liked it. I also like that they grow their own product. This place is dope, check it out.

Arctic herbery will demand you to allow them to scan your ID in to a computer data base.
What happens to this data?
They say that they wipe it every evening.
They also say this data collection is required.
This is not true.
There is no requirement for the store to scan your ID.
No other stores do this.
Is Arctic Herbery a Federal Government
Data collection operation ??
Are you willing to risk being put in theto a marijuana user data base?

Bought a loaf of bread partly because the clerk talked it up so much and told me it was scored into ten slices. The loaf was in a black bag labeled from Frozen Budz with a listed weight of 5 oz with 10 mcg of in each ounce. I got home and opened the package of bread. It was not sliced or marked at all. It looked like a square muffin that had not risen all the way. I put it on my digital scale and the whole "loaf" weighed 2.2 grams. I called the shop to ask what was up(I would have gone back, but I live near Big Lake). No one answered just a message asking people to stop by. I ate half of the bread and did get fairly high, but I feel ripped off. Cant wait until other stores have consistent product and fair weight on product

So I heard AH had edibles in so I show up...no parking. I knew what I wanted so I asked for a 50mg banana bread.....$84....yes...$84. I was shocked. I bought the same thing at Red Run Cannabis Co for $50. I told the rep that I paid $50 previously and she called me out. Red Run has their prices posted. AH does not....I wonder why. I understand supply and demand and people complaining about high prices but $34 dollars more than Red Run. Come on....I also understand that once product starts flowing and more shops open that prices will drop but I want everyone to remember this. Remember that in the beginning this shop wasn't here for the people. They were here to rip them off while they had the chance. I just wanted a little banana bread ya know? I hope that all of the other shops that are about to open read these reviews and remember that the consumer pays your bills. Guys....$84 for 50mg bread...$50 at Red Run. Just ponder this for a moment. Log it away. Also no parking. $84.....$84.....

No parking. Told to park across the street in the neighborhood. Horrible.

$22/gram is a on the high side, and waiting in the cold outside the front door is far from ideal. The owner should remove the grow they've got going on and add some new retail space instead.
