"In the heart of the thriving Division neighborhood lies one of Portland’s oldest and most revered dispensaries. Rip City Remedies is located just steps away from some of the city’s best eats and libations, drawing people in with their simple but attractive natural wood exterior. Glass windows adorned with green and black vinyl ensure patient privacy.
Upon entering, a small cozy waiting room with a couple of chairs and literature to peruse awaits visitors. Once on the sales floor, welcoming smiles of their budtenders let me know I’d be well cared for. Large cases are filled with glass jars containing an assortment of Oregon’s best cannabis. Rip City’s selection of flowers ranges from staples like Cin-X, Chemdawg, and Sour Diesel, to some unique and hard-to-find offerings like Cannadential, 9LB Hammer, and Blueberry Headband."

This is the first store I've ever been to. Easy for a beginner and very helpful...
In the lower Division area you have a handful of dispensary options sprinkled throughout the street. Rip City Remedies is probably 2nd or 3rd favorite of them. Not bad at all, just not my favorite. Nice people!
This place is awesome, if u go try fire og. So good I got lost on my way home. Had to call fire department to escort me home, crazy right?
Budtender was extremely rude and rushed me into buying something I did not expect. Truly worst experiences I've had in Oregon. Please do yourself and your paycheck a favor and do not go here.
We are sorry you had this experience. We have been here for a few years and don't like to hear our customers are being treated this way. Do you know the budtender you worked with?
These guys know their product! So helpful. It's my favorite place to visit! They have a lot of selection and prices are fair.
For a while now, I have been looking for a thc infused vapor liquid. It makes more than enough sense to have the industry branch out in that direction. As Rip Trippers on YouTube says "Smoking is dead. Vaping is the future. And the future is now". It's time to look at a new way to do your medicine.
I had been looking for this possibility for a while now. So I was thrilled to see that Rip City Remedies had a lemon kush e-liquid! I must try!
Location: Right on Division. Not bad. Easy access from pretty much anywhere in Portland.
Accessibility: They thankfully had their own parking lot amongst the insanity that happens in that area during weekends. However, its rock. Not concrete. This is rough for wheelchair users. There are concrete areas
close by, but none for the dispensary itself that I saw. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong!
Atmosphere: It was ok. Pretty straight forward. Almost going into the "Plain" category. Far from offensive or dirty, which is always a plus.
Staff: I was lucky. I came in on what seemed to be ladies employee night. The budtenders were the sweetest ladies I have met in a while. Knew what they were talking about. I love weed smart women!
Quality: OK, here I am going into a bit of a review, so I apologize if it seems like I am straying a bit from just dispensary info. But, since it's their product, it works.
I got 2 items. I got my e-liquid and this concentrate from Liquid Amber. It was a form of an oil type made from the 3 Kings strain.
First off, the e-liquid.
I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. I do not know if this is the same for other patients who has tried this medicine, but it was a very mixed bag of experimentation before really finding how this works to it's fullest potential. I will explain in the pro's and con's below. I will start with con's since those were what allowed me to sort of "dial in" the product.
Cons: The taste is terrible. Just an opinion, but its kinda nasty. But, taste follows function. It's also kinda harsh on the throat. The vapor clouds it produces is poor. I am assuming it is because of the makeup of the liquid. Speaking of the liquid composition, the juice actually gummed up 2 of my clearomizers! The Protank 2 mini and even my Nautilus Aspire, the Bentley of clearomizer tanks! Had to tear them apart, scrub them out and replace the coils. What is THAT about????
The last con is the potency. It seems to take a LOT to feel any of the effects. It cannot seem to "Get the party started", but it can keep it going.
PROS: OK, so after playing around some I figured I would try some in just my dripper atty. I put in a few drops with one drop of flavored e-juice. That did the trick. It mixed with the e-liquid and I was able to get nice clouds of tasty vapor that delivered the medicine a bit better, it seems (zero level nicotine, btw. Just PG/VG/flavor e-liquid). Maybe because it atomized the medicine a bit more? Whatever it was, it boosted this product up more.
Final thoughts on the e-liquid: It's a great first attempt, honestly. I would love this product if the creator could rework the mixture a bit. Also, if they would list the VG/PG ratio it would be great. The medicine level is not a bad one at 66% THC 1.34% CBD. It just needs a better delivery system.
Now, bonus. Liquid Amber. I saw a few places in town offer this interesting goodie. I was pleased to see Rip City Remedies had some. Figured "Why not?"
The product is very similar to the Thai Stick line that has been popping up lately. It comes in small vials or pre-loaded cheapo cartomizers. It's not cheap, but it's actually great stuff. It just sucks trying to get it out of the little vials and into your bowl! But once you do.............yeah. It's great stuff.
I will not write another novel on how to use this stuff. You guys are smart. You can figure it out. Just give it a try! Rip City Remedies will be there for you!
I will be back, for sure.
This place always has bomb oils. Been coming here for almost two years now
I've been here quite a few times now and really like this place. The staff are very helpful and the best I've dealt with when it comes to freebies. It seems like I always have 1-3 free items whenever I leave this place. I really like that. The flower has always been top notch and a nice selection of edibles as well. Concentrates have been slightly hit or miss for me but good for the most part. The atmosphere is nice as well, they were doing some kind of remodeling the last time I was in so it probably even nicer now! Great place, I will be back!
dabs are hit or miss, sometimes you will find gold there and sometimes ... not, they carried better rso in the past this new stuff is whack and does not help my fibro at all like there old rso dabs I last had reeeked of mercaptans... just sayin
This place is more for those really into concentrates. The selection of flowers is really mediocre. I do like their kief. Staff is super-nice and it is a great place to hang out.
