When I first experienced Olympia retail cannabis well over 2 years ago, I was not impressed. Several stores just did not hit the mark for me. The early industry in the capital was trying to find itself, and with a bit of experience and time, the best rise to the top!
Going into any Lucid - especially the Lacey/Yelm Highway store - I have high expectations and for a year and a half or more EVERY visit has been spot on!
I always dig the products they have on the shelves, especailly lately with a ton of new brands from far away filling shelves in the Capitol! As Washington's premiere cannabis reviewer, I know quite a bit about brands, their farms, their reputation for quality - and Lucid staff often surprise me with offerings I've never heard of or only heard of in legend!
Plus, I'm a bit of a picky customer. I like to ask lots of questions, and hear budtender experiences. The budtenders at this Lucid have got such a diverse set of experiences and preferences, that I can be sure to get a good recommendation no matter the product I'm looking for or the time of day I come in.
This is probably the MOST important part of a cannabis store's reputation for me and Lucid Lacey has definitely done this!
There prices on bud and oil are amazing. Love the paint job on the Martin way shop. Best prices and quality I've found on oil so far. Love the high guys and dab dudes.
great store very friendly and knowledgeable. Great brands and strains very competitive pricing.
p.s. hot chicks work there as well that's a plus.
Ricky or whatever his name was (long haired dude with glasses) super douche with no customer service skills. I am a disabled vet wanting to get out on the registry and all this man could do was tell me he could schedule an appointment even though I had just talked to the medical consultant and she had said she could see me that same day. After expressing to him the conversation that the consultant and I had three more times he just continued to stand and stare at me. So I asked to speak with the consultant and he huffed off in a tizzy. So I left and came back later because I still needed to be on the registry. After coming back in and asking to speak with the consultant the female bud tender went to the back to get the consultant and at that point Ricky or whatever decide to go all out with talking crap. So I simply said I have no idea how you got hired here acting like that. To which he flipped out calling me a baby and other childish names. I refuse to waste my money at this craphole

I'm not coming back, just here to see if anyone replied to my last review (of course not) and I see your inventory is an even bigger joke now. Keep up the terrible work.

The selection is typical of the area. They were pretty short on concentrates when I went in a couple of times. In addition they refused to sell me two half gram packages for the gram price when they were out of gram packages. I understand each package has to be scanned. That doesn't mean you can't scan them both and only charge me $45. If a $5 "price break" because you ordered the wrong amount of half g vs. g packages is too much to handle for a customer it's pretty clear what your short term goals for the business are. I would've returned the half gram and left with nothing...but nope, can't do that either even though I hadn't even picked it up from the counter yet.
As for the prices...I recently purchased Dab Dudes for $20 per gram and Phat Panda for $35. This is 50%-60% cheaper. I'm never paying $45 for a gram again. Even compared to other spots in Olympia their bud is more expensive. Their oil is in line with what the other Oly spots are gouging people for. I won't be back unless some other places close down.
If the owner would like to reply to this post and provide me justification for their half grams of oil costing more than the grams I picked up elsewhere, I will be happy to remove this review. At this point I have no reason to believe it's anything other than greed though.
New to WA and was looking for something good and new. They made me feel very welcome and had no problem explaining anything or giving advice as needed. Amazing customer service from each and every person I spoke too, clean and organized facility, and great selections. I look forward to coming back and bring some of my FL friends for a nice time.
Thanks for the new experience!
I went here a couple weeks ago. Everything was well labeled and the staff was cheerful and helpful, and they gave me a discount for being a Portlander, which along with the deal then running on Avitas merchandise made the prices pretty decent. I've tried Lemon Kush and Chocolope so far of the strains I bought and I like the Lemon Kush best so far. Haven't even tried the high-CBD strains yet, but they have them, which is great.
The door process was also really friendly - my friend's ID didn't meet requirements (she recently got out of a bad situation and lost her state ID, though she had other documents) and while they ultimately decided they couldn't let her in, they treated her very politely about it.
