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.

Wasn't that great definitely not a high end shop more of a homely neighborhood bodega type place. Staff is okay except for the grumpy old lady who acts like she is high on pills or a functioning alcoholic. Oh well. Product varies from top shelf to are you fucking kidding me. Budding Alaska has tons of stems and seeds you don't need and is very far from badass weed. Peace Frog is your best bet on a good product.
We try to always have as much variety as possible, which means some product is great and some is less than great. Hope you don't give up on us... from your favorite "grumpy old lady".
Every time I go in there's always a friendly smile and a hello. The bud tenders are very knowledgeable about their products and cannabis in general! The prices are the best I've seen in the state.I have had a few questions about concentrates and there Vape pens and every question was answered thoroughly and with personal experience for said product. I do not plan on shopping anywhere else because I have found the best place to get my stash! Everyone should give high bush a try.
Everyone at High Bush is friendly, very good customer service. The Budtenders are happy, always smiling, and you are Greeted with a Hello.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💥💥💥💥
Friendly staff, clean shop, and great prices. They stock my two favorite cultivators, Peace Frog and Green Rush Gardens. Always my first choice for Cannabis on the Kenai.
There are currently two stores in the area and Highbush Buds is definitely my favorite store to shop at. Their prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly and informative. If you're in the area it's worth the stop!!
I swung in on my way back to Anchorage and absolutely loved the place! The prices are the cheapest I've seen. The staff was super friendly, informative, and jumped right into what they had in stock. They even had coffee and snacks (that I happily accepted) Can't wait to come back in on my next trip down!
Thanks for stopping in! We try our best to offer premium quality product with service to match! Glad we could help!
This is a great pot shop with an excellent selection located right next to the Kenai River! A must stop prior to any fishing trip!
What a beautiful point! We appreciate your support and hope to see many fisherman and tourists :)

As a cultivator, we appreciate High Bush's ethic to sell at an appropriate price to the consumer. Prices are still high due to the wholesale cost but they are doing their best. The quality of products is determined by what is available, but this too will improve in time as more wholesale product becomes available.
As a customer I appreciate their interest in making people happy with their purchase. They do their best with what is available and I LOVE their customer service! Never heard anyone say they just dab and don't use flower, I know this to not be true. Well done High Bush! My favorite store on the beautiful Kenai Peninsula!
Our cultivators take such good care of us... especially at this time that they could be doubling prices because of low supply vs high demand. We are honored to work with such great local farmers who are committed to making the cannabis industry on the Kenai Peninsula as great as we can. Thank you a thousand times!
High Bush is the best shop in town! Great quality, great price, great selection, the employees are always friendly and answer every question they can. I love the small and cozy feeling in the shop, it makes for a nice, personal experience.
Thank you so much for the great review - our customers are simply the best! :)

Horrible customer service, asked questions about things and all we got was "we just dab we don't smoke flowers" all grunt style and they looked high as hell and they bent my joints and stuffed them in a baggy, stems poking holes big huge obvious voids in the pre roll, they need better customer service and product handling
wow... that's a lot of hate in three small sentences. We're sad you had such a bad experience. Our knowledgeable budtenders work very hard to put out good product at good prices, But we obviously failed with you and hope you give us another chance.
