The exterior of Gram Central Station is bewildering, with a refurbished façade reminiscent of old Western towns, and a snug four-space parking lot bound on all sides by high fences. Inside, the waiting room is dark and sparse, with an ATM glowing in the corner. It's a welcome surprise when the floor space opens up, cozy and inviting and reminiscent of Portland's lived-in cannabis history. The flower's on point, for sure. On the shelf for my visit: a sublimely velvet Sirius Black tinted the shade of old-vine zinfandel. Gram Central Station isn't where you should bring Grandma, but those who have haunted Oregon head shops over the past few decades will feel right at home.

I've been to at least 30 dispensaries in PDX. They all have their quirks, some are fun, some have cute/interesting staff, some are aesthetically pleasing, some are run by Tommy Chong.
But from here on out. This will be the only dispensary I buy from.
Day in, day out, they have a:
1) wider selection
2) knowledgeable staff (don't mistake their matter-of-fact tone for bitchiness, they know their stuff. Seriously. Quiz them. Ask stupid questions. Ask where stuff is grown and what CBD means and why that sativa MAY not be as good as the indica you normally hate---yeah, that's YOU connoisseur bro-dog)
3) they have the new, fun stuff. And they will tell you whether it's worth it or not
4) and right now, they have Sirius Black, hands down, the best strain I've ever smoked. I thought it would be fun to grab a gram of this new ultra dark purple indica they've got, if I'm not mistaken, it's like 16-17%. And it's pretty. Otherworldly pretty. Not a gimmick. Best I've had in 18 months.
Always a good experience buying from them.
Last time i was there they had a 10 a gram price on anything. No deals on larger quantities. Bizarre. The quality was okay but the vibe was a little off.
The guy working was nice, but the BHO was 35 for a gram, and not very good compared to what Im used to getting for 20 a gram. The flower was ok, not terrible, but also not up to my usual quality standards. Never been back. Wouldnt recommend unless it was the only place open.
C to B- grade bud, guy cleaning bud on counter and would not even stop or move when three people walked in. Keep the dogs at home you guys have clubs for sick people, NOT DOGS!
Their cascade wonder is really top shelf. They need more strains like it though. Nice people just need more selection. Decent donation prices
great meds low donations going to be my new favorite hangout
Love the Cascade Wonder. Very nice. Great new shop and nice staff. Thanks Cascade
