"My physican suggested I try marijuana to help with the effects of chemo and my weight loss. I went to a couple of fairly scary places before coming to Green Buddha, where the staff put me instantly at ease. I am very appreciative for the time they took explaining how I might use edibles and tinctures. They even gave me a demo with a marijuana vaporizer. Medical marijuana has been a huge help in dealing with my pain."
Betsy, a 68 years old medical marijuana patient
"I'd used cannabis for over 30 years and thought I pretty much knew it all. The orientation I got was fabulous and in the process I've learned that sativas are way more useful for my condition. Thank you for the invaluable lesson!"
Donald, a 51 years old medical marijuana patient with rheumatoid arthritis
"I was resistant to trying cannabis for my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) but Green Buddha showed me a product ~ a discreet pill ~ inexpensive and wonderfully successful. Be sure to ask about their maripills!"
Kelly, a 41 year old, medical marijuana patient
"Green Buddha is definitely one of my top rescources for fine meds in the seattle area. They have a convenient storefront, I just pull my car up with my id and authorization handy, park right at the curb and within ten minutes i'm cruising away with a bag full of dense, crystally nugs."
Brandon, a 36 year old medical marijuana patient

What strains does the Green Buddha have in today? This is always a tough question to answer because we're an authentically supplied collective with over a thousand members, and a constantly rotating stock of over 500 strains to date! What's in when you call may not be what's in when you come in! We average more than 20 strains in at any point in the day, everything from full on indicas to full on sativas and every conceivable blend in between. For 2012 we have averaged more than 30 strains in stock every day, changing daily. If we don't have the particular strain you seek, we will probably have a good substitute!
While the strain one gets is important to understanding the medicinal effect one will achieve by using it, how a plant is grown is equally important. Green Buddha is proud to carry only the finest organic medicine, certified as mold and fungus free Patient-Ready Cannabis™.
The Green Buddha Patient Co-op is the ONLY medical collective or access point to fully safety test its medicine. Surprisingly until rather recently this fact has received litttle notice but this is changing. Various labs have noted in press that a large portion of the cannabis tested does not pass the safety test. A recent KOMO story informs patients that there is no protection for medical users. As such getting medicinal cannabis products from a reliable place that can verify its prduct has been tested is very important. It is medicine after all. In addition, read this surprising study released October 2012 by the National Jewish Health Organization, which suggests that most indoor grows might have unacceptable levels of microbial contamination.
