High Bush Buds is a Soldotna Recreational Marijuana Retail Store High Bush Buds serves the Soldotna cannabis community as their friendly, neighborhood marijuana retail store. With especially great deals and the highest quality of Alaskan cannabis around, High Bush Buds is committed to providing the ultimate marijuana experience from store to smoke. History: With the finalization of Alaska’s recreational cannabis regulations, High Bush Buds proudly opened their dispensary doors on January 1st, 2017, as a natural extension of the founders’ experience owning the neighborhood head shop for sixteen years. Serving the Soldotna community for nearly two decades, it seemed natural to expand from one type of smoking to the next, and the founder of High Bush Buds was thrilled to open a retail store where visitors could explore the wonders of cannabis. Starting with a bang, High Bush Buds serves an average of nearly 300 customers a day when fully stocked on marijuana products, and are proud to be the cheapest dispensary in Alaska for the highest quality of product. Staff: Soldotna’s High Bush Buds sets themselves apart from other dispensaries in numerous ways, specializing in a variety of cannabis goods all priced at reasonably low rates. Striving to be the friendly neighborhood pot shop, High Bush Buds’ dispensary staff weighs their cannabis to order, never pre-packaging flower or bud and storing their goods in a humidified and air-conditioned vault to retain the marijuana’s natural quality. As Alaska’s vendors expand in size and production, High Bush Buds plans on offering an extensive cannabis selection, and always will walk their valued retail customers through each and every item. Menu: High Bush Buds stocks between 10-20 flower strains on average, all grown from the highest-quality recreational cannabis cultivators in Alaska with the lowest prices around in Soldotna and beyond. Also carrying a range of concentrates and expanding into vape cartridges and pens, High Bush Buds particularly specializes in their flower selection. Their Alaskan-native Rick Original is a dispensary retail favorite, with many people enjoying their Platinum Huckleberry cookie strain as well. Located adjacent to a long-standing tobacco shop, dispensary customers need not travel far to find an excellent selection of glass products, rolling papers, bongs, dabbing rigs and much more. All marijuana goods undergo lab testing by State of Alaska approved testing before landing on their retail shelves. High Bush Buds currently only handles cash transactions, and proudly offers significantly reduced cannabis prices to all of their retail store visitors. With marijuana goods marked a good 20-30% cheaper than other Alaska dispensaries, High Bush Buds prioritizes keeping their high quality cannabis goods as affordable as possible for retail guests. They love connecting with dispensary customers through their website, Instagram, Facebook or over the phone.

The relentless search for new, bigger, better, 6 inches longer, flower, has scored Team Wes, truly organic, kick your ass herb. Hats off to the Strawberry Goji Cookies and RC Tinderbox for their cultuvation techniques and their strain selection. Speaking of "attention to strain selection" by a cultuvator, once again, Peace Frog Botanicals is spot on with El Capitan Paz and Honey Badger Haze. The haze is very special in taste, aroma, and that beautiful, sativa high. The paz, much like PFB other selections, is the prettiest, covered with frost, too pretty to grind up and smoke, strain ive had the pleasure to sample. The bud tenders are simply put, the best in town. If your curious about the paticulars of a strain, ask. If you want to know which strain will make you feel energetic, or put you to sleep, ask. Products are all reasonably priced, their service and product knowledge is priceless.
DO NOT SHOP HERE !!! unless your tired of paying more for less, or tired of getting your ass ate out for asking questions. Because one thing for sure, if you ask Sydney, or Jeremy which flower they prefer and why, not only will they give you specifics, they will set a sample in front of you to smell and see. Store manager Wes, has a knack for putting the right people in the right places, and i thank the ganja gods for that. He also has a knack for acquiring "Da Kind", and at 47 strains on flower menu, another 8 or 10 pre-roll strains, a butt load of concentrates, e-blunts, spikes, edibles, and my favorite, the c-cell cartridges from Good Titrations, (The lemon haze tastes like lemon cola) you will surely find a strain to take you into the sunset this weekend....and the sunrise.
I love the wide variety of CBD strains they carry. There is no where else is alaska that has that variety of high CBD flower. Their selection of flower in general is great. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, and the bud tenders are very helpful. Extra points for the deli style service.

Team Wes has done it again, with the over the top selections. If your looking to be over the top baked, and laugh your ass down to a sensible size, Honey Badger Haze by Peace Frog Botanicals is an excellent selection. F-bomb is an evening ass kicker, with a lot of character they we have come to expect from the hillbilly cultivator. Extreme GSC was another selection that is well worth a mention. Also, a definite head candy with out couchlock. The store owner mentioned she did not think the man we know and love as Wes was going to stop with strain purchases until he had many more than last count of 56. Get used to it Alaskans, and other retail store owners, for selection, staff, and stoney products, go to the Bush, High Bush that is.
I've stopped looking at their selection. It's just too much... I just ask the bud tenders what they've been smoking on amd get that. Winners every time.
Do not smoke the geezy bud, @ 28.57 % unless you are at home, strapped down, ready for a ride. I am an old school smoker, and had about given up on getting baked, until i smoked Geezy. Shi* Fire and save the matches. Wes, genius cultivator behind Green Star, out did himself with this hasy, heady, stoney, work of art. WARNING: 2 PUFFS IS ENOUGH.
IMO by far the best shop around, good staff, massive selection, great prices.
Despite the fact I live in Kenai, and also despite the fact there are 4 other dispensaries from soldotna to sterling, I still prefer HighBush. I've smoked for quite a while and don't necessarily need too much assistance while shopping, but whenever I do they're more than happy to help. I love the package as you buy method since the pre package tends to evaporate once in contact with your hand, not too mention a pretty kick ass variety pretty much at all times. Oh and I for one desperately enjoy said "grumpy lady" and the fun personalities of all the staff😘
Thank you so much for your kind words! We truly appreciate every customer. Everything we do is for you guys!
The staff at High Bush are kind and knowledgeable on everything they carry. I enjoy the fact that they weigh out and package the flowers at time of selection. Makes for a less dry more flavor flower. The prices are pretty reasonable compared to other shops if not cheaper. The shop itself is nice and has a hometown feeling nothing to fancy and over the top. I enjoy being able to go in and have a menu handed to me as I walk in, not having to crowd around one or two menus. The only thing I would change is different color shirts and merchandise available and start some sort of rewards program. Thank you for your wonderful store.
The friendly staff made my first time buying from a dispensary very comfortable, I will be back again thanks for the pro service!
Thank YOU for coming and seeing us! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to helping you get high again :)
