Enlighten is a family-owned and operated dispensary that has the distinction of being one of the first Anchorage stores to open its doors. Now five years into the business, Enlighten is not only a Spenard staple – it is one of the best places to buy Cannabis in the state.
Environment and Vibe
The Enlighten experience begins the second you park your car on the corner of Spenard and 26th. The side of the building sports a large, vibrant mural that conveys one of the company’s ideals: feel well, live well. As you turn the corner to the store’s entrance, you are greeted by a stunning array of foliage and hanging baskets. Although the greenery won’t make it through the winter, the sleek, modern exterior of the building more than makes up for it. Inside the dispensary, warm-toned wood, low lighting and an impeccably clean environment make you want to linger – doubly so in the cold winter months.
Continuing its focus on creating a wonderful shopping experience, Enlighten has a team of seven passionate budtenders ready to serve you. Lead budtenders Charles, Javier and Gino have done their due diligence when training the store’s up-and-coming budtenders, so you are guaranteed to encounter a knowledgeable, friendly budtender any day of the week. Interested in learning more about blunts? Ask for Charles. Want to try dabbing for the first time? Javier and Gino can help you select the right product and consumption method for your individual needs.
