As a long-practicing weed smoker, nothing seems to smooth over the anxiety of meeting hundreds of new people a week like a nice J after a show. In recent years, some state legislation has blessed us with dispensary pit stops for our weed fix (Colorado! California!), but most places still feel like the Wild West in that regard. I have been touring in bands for over a decade now, and I have had some pretty weird/dire/embarrassing hunts and experiences looking for chronic.Read More
There isn’t anything quite so exciting as waiting for someone to bring you gifts, especially gifts of cannabis. It was a warm summer day when I was handed 11 samples of weed, camouflaged with animal code names in an effort to eliminate bias. You see, I had the great fortune to be asked to serve as a judge for the inaugural Evergreen Cup, the Pacific Northwest’s first ever anonymous grower’s competition.Read More

On August 16, 2018, nearly four years after the legalization of recreational marijuana in Washington state, “a Kittitas County Superior Court judge on Thursday gave Yakima County a green light to shut down cannabis grower and processor Sticky Budz, which has been operating in an unincorporated area despite a ban on such operations,”Read More
When you ask a Hashtag budtender, “What’s the best thing in the store?” our answer is, very often, “Gold Leaf.” We are all a bit obsessed with their flower, Diamond Tip infused joints, and rosin and ice wax. Gold Leaf’s gardeners use no pesticides at all in their indoor growing facility—which is very unusual for an indoor grow operation—and their fixation on quality is legendary in the medical marijuana community, where they began growing and selling twelve years ago.Read More
Why does Willie Nelson embrace cannabis? When Nelson gets stoned, it’s not recreational use, he says in an 2016 interview with The Cannabist: “It’s medicine, and it’s already been proven to be medicine. End of story.” Cannabis cures what ails him, Nelson says, and it also keeps him from getting into the trouble he used to get into with beer and whiskey and cigarettes.Read More
Edibles are awesome! Tasty, sweet, tart, or crunchy… no matter what form they take, edibles are a fun (and discreet) way to get loose and have a good time.
But what if you’re trying to lose weight? Or if your diet doesn’t allow you to eat foods that are high in sugar?
Not to worry, you’re not alone. A lot of the budtenders at Hashtag have dietary restrictions just like you. But we don’t let it keep us from having a good time!
In fact, Hashtag carries a wide variety of low-carb and sugar-free edibles.Read More

Whether this is the first time in your life that you’ve wanted to try marijuana, or if you’re in your fourth, fifth, or sixth decade of smoking weed, Hashtag's budtenders, in Fremont and Redmond, love their cannabis and would love to meet you too.
So, where do you start? Here are the most popular questions we hear from baby boomers and seniors!
Whether you like to run, practice yoga, climb, swim, or bike, summer is the perfect season to get outside and exercise! And if you’re anything like us, you might have considered getting high before you hit the trail.
Why, you might ask? Because coupling cannabis with your exercise is amazing!
Most cannabis users are well aware of pot’s most famous molecule, Tetrahydrocannabinol Δ9 (or THC for short). And take it from us, we love THC, too!
But did you know that THC is only one of dozens of types of unique molecules that are produced by marijuana plants? Years of scientific research suggest that many of these naturally occurring and chemically-unique molecules, called cannabinoids, can have a measurable and significant impact on your high.
Summer is almost here! Long, sun-soaked days and cool, starry nights are on the horizon. Not to mention dozens of new strains and cannabis products to choose from! So, what should you be smoking this summer? What tasty edibles or cartridges should you bring to the picnic or BBQ?Read More
Every stoner, new and old, has heard of the sativa flower strain Acapulco Gold. It’s a strain that’s taken on a life entirely of its own. It is renowned throughout much of the world for its potency, its sweet, earthy flavors, and its unmistakably unique, almost psychedelic, effects. It has been featured in several movies (most notably Cheech & Chong’s timeless comedy Up In Smoke) and TV shows, and rumor has it that Acapulco Gold was delivered in the 1960s as a wedding gift to future Vice President Dan Quayle (or so the story goes).Read More
