Our story really begins in a time decades past with a confident young man filled with unlimited enthusiasm, curiosity and a drive for excellence who lived in many places before settling in Oregon. Recruited to play college football, he turned down a scholarship and parlayed his outgoing nature into a job selling bandwidth for Eschelon Telecom (a communications company) when fortunes were being made during the advent of the Internet age. As the slowdown hit, he moved from one hot industry to another -- mortgage lending -- and continued to make a great living. He moved onto commercial lending, and then venture capital funding start-ups.
One of Simpson's interests, horticulture, is where he found that he had a proverbial "green thumb." It led to a collaboration with a horticultural professor and he eventually opened a hydroponic retail store before beginning a grow room building operation that would forever change his life.
It was in 2002 when his grandmother was diagnosed with terminal cancer that William observed first-hand the benefits of cannabis in the management of her pain and loss of appetite. That experience solidified his view as to the need for readily available medical-grade cannabis for people who were suffering from various diseases and conditions. In 2005, with the appropriate authorization, he built a laboratory-like grow in his basement and began selling equipment to others for the same purpose.
As medical marijuana took off in Oregon, Simpson's business grew (he designed and installed numerous grows in the Pacific Northwest) and The Green Future Garden Hydroponics LLC was incorporated in March of 2009, which included a consulting element (they were one of the earliest consultants in the cannabis space) that increased the entity's margins as well as their expertise based upon experience in building-out dozens of state-of-the-art grow facilities.

I bought a PAX 2 from this dispensary & it is defective & will not work! I called the store 3 times & was told I don't know how to use it even though there are a million websites that give you step by step instructions! I'm a moron! Went to the store & spoke with the manager. I shelled out 252.00 on the thing & it does not work, please exchange it for one that does. I was told they couldn't do that, I needed to deal with the company that makes it. This was 3 days after I bought it! The employees are not very knowledgable, the product is more expensive & not any better! Do not shop there!
I've been to chalice a handful of times. Very rarely had to wait in line. Upon entering I am greeted by my salesperson who focuses on getting me what I need. Was a bit awkward when I went to get money out of the ATM at first, as he was just standing there waiting for me. Maybe put the ATM in the lobby? Anyways bud quality is top of the line but you will definitely pay the price. I haven't heard of any incentive rewards programs like punch cards or electronic text memberships etc. Probably losing customers to dispensaries that do offer free pre-rolls and other perks.
Nice place, very clean. but about $10 more expensive then the place at the top of pacific hwy (99) and lot less of a variety to choose from. and they never give out freebies like the other places.
parking is also right off the main road, if you want privacy, this isn't a good place.
Oh and they close at 9pm on Friday and Saturdays, that's a bit of a bummer too.
Tigard Chalice is absolutely amazing. From the original opening day staff to the boss man we call Sensei Dragon Slayer, its always a good time, and we feel like family there. Now the best part... THE BUDS!! YUM! We've never been disappointed, my favourite is the Sour OG and the ace of spades. If you want a great atmosphere, with out feeling rushed in and rushed out, and some top quality bud Chalice is the place for you!
