HUMBOLDT


Humboldt Patients Resource Center 980 6th St., Arcata


(707) 826-7988 The most popular and most service- oriented of Arcata’s dispensaries, HPRC often has lines out the door, so don’t be put off by the one-eighth-per-day limit. Grown indoors on site, HPRC’s medicine is organic. Four to six strains are generally available—recently it was mostly indicas, but there were two tantalizingly speedy sativas, priced at $38 an eighth. Grow- ing director Kevin Jodrey says he keeps an open door, so if you get a chance to talk with him, grab it: He’s been growing for 30 years and delivers a master class in even the most casual cannabis conversation. Edibles, tinctures and balms are made lo- cally. HPRC recently closed its wellness center, where it offered massage, yoga and nutrition classes, citing fi nancial diffi culty as it awaits city approval on a larger grow- ing and dispensary facility.


Humboldt Medical Supply 855 8th St., Arcata


(707) 825-6700 Tucked into a simple, clean and effi cient space, Humboldt Medical Supply sounds like the source for catheters and wheel- chairs, but is, in fact, the most medically minded of Humboldt’s dispensaries, spe- cializing in medicine for patients with cat- astrophic illnesses. Their intake question- naire is more detailed than most doctors’ Prop. 215 evaluations. Grown in-house, all medicine—Kush, Trainwreck, Purple Ne- pal and Pineapple Diesel comprised the menu when I was there—is Clean Green certifi ed organic. At $200 per ounce, or $26 an eighth, Humboldt Medical Supply boasts “the lowest prices in town.”


The Humboldt California Assn. Inc. 601 I St., Arcata (707) 822-9330


www.thcainc.com Resembling a kiosk jutting out of a hydro- ponics store, The Humboldt California Association is a bodega among dispensa- ries. It’s also the only one in Humboldt that charges membership fees (minimum $25) but gives 30-day trials, convenient

for canna-tourists. The drill is like a home-spun bank: Step up to the glass- windowed counter and slide your ID and Prop. 215 recommendation through a slot. Only then will the curtain be lifted and the goods revealed: 14 fat buds pinned to a board (like science specimens), and jars of small buds and bud crumbles. Top-shelf strains, all grown indoors on premises, are $15 a gram and skewed toward indicas. Eighths of small bud and crumbles are $32 and $25, respectively.
