Canna West Seattle (WSB sponsor) is now open in its “new” location at 5440 California SW – which was intended to be its location all along.
When we reported back in 2016 that proprietor Maryam Mirnateghi had obtained the first state license for a recreational-marijuana store in WS, she had bought the Craftsman house and expected a relatively quick conversion from its previous incarnation as professional offices.
The city permitting process didn’t work out that way – so she launched Canna West Seattle across the street in a storefront that had been a dispensary in the medical-marijuana-only days.
But now, 5440 California SW is fully remodeled into Canna West Seattle’s permanent home. Mirnateghi says it’s larger than the space across the street, which means more room to display products and information.
There are also now five registers, which means less waiting at busy times. And soon there will be a sixth for people to pick up and pay for orders they place online. There’s also an illuminated menu board for pre-rolls.
While the new location doesn’t have offstreet parking, you can still park across the street in the lot for 5435 California SW, which Mirnateghi plans to reopen soon as Canna West Seattle’s merchandise store – “high-end glass,” T-shirts, etc. Also in the works, some paving along the alley behind the new location so a ramp can be installed for those unable to use the stairs that lead to the front door.
Canna West Seattle is open 9 am-11:30 pm seven days a week; June 23rd is set for a grand-opening party at the new location, so watch for details on that.
