Marijuana grow approved in Bremerton; SK retailers on the move

111-bruennThe state approved a marijuana grow Wednesday off Auto Center Boulevard in Bremerton.

Producer and processor United Western Green will be located in a warehouse at 111 Bruenn Ave., according to Liquor and Cannabis Board records.

United Western Green is the 16th producer/processor licensed in Kitsap County.

Retailers on the move

Marijuana retailers originally licensed in South Kitsap are shuffling locations this fall, perhaps seeking less crowded markets.

Eight marijuana retailers were approved in the Port Orchard area. Now some are moving out. Click to enlarge.

The board recently approved an address change allowing 21+ Recreational Marijuana to hop from Bethel Road in Port Orchard to 3062 SW Hwy. 16, Suite A in Gorst.

Two other South Kitsap marijuana stores have applied to relocate to Silverdale.

Fillabong, which also operates a shop in Silverdale, already shifted its license from Mile Hill Drive to 3249 Perry Ave., just outside Bremerton limits.

Here’s my map of Kitsap marijuana businesses. I’ll update the new retail locations once they’re approved by the board:

Port Orchard area now has six marijuana stores

po.potThe Liquor and Cannabis Board approved two recreational marijuana stores off Mile Hill Drive this month, bringing the Port Orchard area’s total to six.

Both new retailers appear to be just outside city limits. (Click on the image at right to see all six locations.)

A store called Fillabong was approved March 10 for a space at 4978 SE Mile Hill Drive. Fillabong also had a Silverdale location licensed in February.

This week, the board approved a shop at 1762 Village Lane SE, in the South Park Village retail center. Its name: A Recreational Marijuana Store.

The addition of the Port Orchard Fillabong and A Recreational Marijuana Store raise Kitsap’s count of marijuana retailers to 13.

Four Port Orchard stores are already operating along the Bethel Road corridor (though one is currently suspended).

The state will allow a total of 20 marijuana retail outlets in Kitsap, meaning there are seven licenses still up for grabs, including five in the county at large.

About 40 applicants are vying for the remaining slots. An application period for retail licenses closes March 31.

How are Kitsap’s existing marijuana shops faring? Here’s an updated look at sales trends:

Eight apply to sell recreational marijuana in Kitsap

Eight prospective retailers have applied for licenses to sell recreational marijuana in Kitsap County so far, according to an early list of applicants released by the state Liquor Control Board. Six of the applications are for Bremerton locations. Silverdale and Poulsbo each have one proposed shop.

Thirteen have applied to produce (grow) marijuana, and 13 have applied to process marijuana. Nearly all the applicants seeking producer licenses also applied for processing licenses, with a couple of exceptions. Producer and processor applications came from all over the county, including Bainbridge Island.

There is still plenty of time for prospective marijuana entrepreneurs to apply for licenses under the new I-502 rules. The 30-day application period opened Nov. 20.

The Liquor Control Board will allow up to 10 retail stores in Kitsap. Competition will be stiff in Bremerton, where only two locations can be approved within city limits.
