Don’t let the name fool you; everything this shop does is above water. While the first one opened in Bremerton in 2015, it wasn’t long before the tides flowed across Puget Sound to settle their next effort in Capitol Hill. And after building a reputation as the finest shop in town, they reached south to Georgetown for their third amazing store – where they just celebrated their first birthday in December. Congratulations to owners Adam Simon and Aaron Bennett!

The original aesthetic for The Reef came from the camera lens of a diver hired to take underwater photos at Alki Beach. And it was those images that were used to design the eye-catching panels which draw your attention outside the original Bremerton shop. It’s all about togetherness at this company, as 5% of profits go directly to charity – proving that being a part of the community is more important than just selling beautiful Cannabis to people, but also about helping to make actual change. If you’ve been to the Cap Hill location, you’ve seen the park across the street featuring Pac-Man painted on the asphalt and weather-resistant ping pong tables – and yes, that renovation was The Reef’s doing. There’s an energy with The Reef, which is why planting roots in Georgetown, Seattle’s oldest neighborhood, made sense a year ago.  


Creativity is a huge foundation for The Reef’s unmistakable identity. Supporting local artists has been integral to their ascent because they firmly believe that nothing pairs better than Cannabis culture and art culture. Here’s something cool: This location was previously a bank built in 1967 – an unusual piece of architecture that sticks out like a fresh, oval nug. So, when the digital temperature/clock sign outside hit 4:20 on opening day, they simply hit the stop button – allowing it to stay a constant reminder of our favorite time, where the temperature is always fire. Make no mistake, these people are all about a positive atmosphere and making weed fun!

About Mike Ricker

The first time Ricker smoked weed was at a Santana concert at the age of 12. He then followed in his footsteps as an award-winning radio personality who became notorious for offering a stage for bong toking listeners in 9 different markets over 20 years. In 2016, the Cannabis industry came calling and the rest is history.
