Kingston is getting a marijuana store

Tiki Green Cannabis will be located in a business park on Bond Road

Kingston is in line for its first recreational marijuana store after the state gave approval this week to a shop called Green Tiki Cannabis.

Green Tiki will open temporarily at 26099 United Road, in a business park off Bond Road.

But owner Christie Stanley, who lives in Kingston, told me she plans to move the shop to a more customer-friendly location at the corner of Miller Bay Road and Highway 104.

Stanley previously operated a medical marijuana dispensary in Tacoma. Green Tiki Cannabis in Kingston has a medical marijuana endorsement.

Green Tiki is the 18th recreational marijuana store licensed in Kitsap, and the first approved north of Poulsbo. The Liquor and Cannabis Board plans to issue up to 20 licenses in the county, meaning there are two more up for grabs.

One of those unclaimed licenses was allocated to Bainbridge Island, so only one more store will be approved on the peninsula.

Grower moving to Bainbridge

In other marijuana news, the state gave the OK for a producer and processor to move to Bainbridge Island.

Landseye Logistics will share a space with Way Kool at 8040 Day Road W, next to the Paper & Leaf retail store. Landseye was previously licensed in North Bend, according to state records.

Here’s an updated map of state-licensed marijuana businesses in Kitsap:

Recreational marijuana grow approved in NK

Recreational marijuana businesses are banned in Poulsbo, but one will soon open outside city limits.

The state Liquor Control Board issued a license Friday for marijuana producer and processor Ethos Extracts, located at 22277 Stottlemeyer Road, near Bond Road.

Ethos Extracts is the first recreational pot business approved in North Kitsap. The state approved a grow on Bainbridge Island earlier this month.

The addition of Ethos Extracts bring’s the county of legalized marijuana businesses in Kitsap to 10, including four retailers and six producers.

There are still no retail shops north of Bremerton.

State approves Bainbridge pot grow

A Bainbridge Island marijuana producer and processor got the green light Tuesday from the state Liquor Control Board.

The planned business, called Way Kool, is the first recreational marijuana operation approved for the island. It will be located in a small industrial park at 8040 Day Road, just west of Highway 305.

This was not the same applicant who’d applied to place a marijuana retail outlet near Manzanita Park, sparking debate over whether the proposed business would violate a moratorium on opening pot businesses within 1,000 feet of public gathering places.

Way Kool is planned for a property outside just outside the 1,000 foot buffer. The city did not object to Way Kool’s application to the Liquor Control Board, according to a city spokeswoman. Way Kool’s business license application is under review.

Second pot grower approved for Bremerton area

Nine Points Growth Industries has company in the West Hills.

The state Liquor Control Board approved a license Wednesday for a recreational marijuana growing and processing company called Secret Gardens of Washington. The business is moving into in a warehouse on Ida Street, near Auto Center Boulevard, just outside city limits.

Owner Bill Delaney said Secret Gardens should be up-and-running in the next few weeks, depending on county permitting. He expects to use about 7,000-square-feet of growing space. The business will also process marijuana extracts.

Delaney, who lives in Everett but plans to move to Kitsap shortly, secured the lease in West Hills at the beginning of the year. He said he hoped to be operating much earlier, but ran into delays in the approval process.

“It’s been a long road since Jan. 1,” he said.

The arrival of Secret Gardens brings the number of approved marijuana producers in Kitsap to three (see map). Nine Point Growth Industries is just down the road on Third Avenue. Green Apple, an indoor/outdoor grow, is located off Clear Creek Road in Silverdale.

The county’s first recreational marijuana retailer, Crockpot, launched last month.

 

Kitsap pot shop applications near 100

Another week, another 30 pot shop applications processed for Kitsap.

The state Liquor Control Board is still working its way through a backlog of recreational marijuana business applications filed before the Dec. 20 deadline.

There are 92 applications listed for retail shops in Kitsap, up from 64 last week.

The applications will be vetted at the state and local level. Qualified applications will be entered into a lottery to determine which receive the limited number of license endorsements allowed.

The state will approve 10 retail outlets in Kitsap, including two in Bremerton and one on Bainbridge Island.

There are also 64 proposed growing operations and 47 processing businesses in Kitsap. Those licenses aren’t capped.

Here’s the updated list of retail applications (map embedded above): Continue reading
