Shop Review: Cookies Portland

Cookies' first Oregon retail location offers a sleek vibe and a seamless shopping experience.

Environment & Vibe

Welcome to Cookies’ first retail location in Oregon! Located in NE Portland, this sleek and elegant shop offers an unbeatable vibe. The showroom floor is very aesthetically pleasing, providing an overall ambiance best described as brilliant. Futuristic and modern shelves showcase vapes, edibles, flowers, clothing, accessories, and of course, the new new. Cookies signature glowing blue islands of flower are a huge draw to this shop. One island offers sungrown and greenhouse options, while the other shows off the top-notch indoor varieties. Overall, this is one of the cleanest shops in Oregon we’ve had the pleasure of visiting. 

History & Values

Concentrating on quality, service and presentation, it’s no wonder that this new dispensary has caused a big splash in the industry. These intentions are beyond apparent, as the shop offers a seamless shopping experience. This store does an incredible job of encapsulating everything that the Cookies brand has to provide.

Product Selection

If you are looking for some of the most sought after brands and companies on the market, Cookies Portland is the right dispensary for you. Here you’ll find the industry-leading producers, including Focus North, Resin Ranchers and Eugreen No-Till. As Cookies has recently partnered with local brands Culture Farms and Doghouse, you can now find strains like Georgia Pie, Cake Mix and London Pound Cake #75 here in Oregon. If dabs or edibles are your cups of tea, you can expect to see companies like Funk Extracts, Happy Cabbage, Hash Hamilton, Echo,  Tasty’s, Gron and Saucey.    

Budtenders & Specials

Their staff certainly has their fingers on the pulse, as they know of all the latest and greatest products available on the market. Beyond their knowledge, the team here is remarkably compassionate and goes above and beyond to help find the perfect product for each person that walks through their doors.
