ENVIRONMENT

Upon pulling into the parking lot, you are met with a captivating Archive Portland mural, letting you know that you are in the right place. There are quite a few parking spaces available, making
this dispensary an easy stop without any headaches. Walking in, you are welcomed with a lovely waiting room offering a comfy seating area. Here you can find various glass display cases with offerings from glass artist Max Polin @mnpglass, as well as a few Quave Club bangers and Toro quartz nails. Walking down the hall into the product room displays an exceptional wall of flower, a plethora of their in-house clones and just about any Cannabis product you can think of! I personally love the modern yet industrial look this shop embodies, tying into the Southeast Portland scene. The U-shaped counter in the product room displays edibles, pre-rolls, FECO, smoking accessories and cartridges. They also utilize two fridges to keep their concentrates and extracts in, ensuring their products remain as fresh as possible until the point of purchase.

HISTORY & VALUES

Opening the doors in 2015 as a medical shop, Owner Mac Laws set out on his mission to offer Oregon some of the highest quality cultivars and Cannabis products in the industry. Archive Portland helps separate themselves from other cultivators and dispensaries by consistently carrying a rainbow of top-shelf quality Cannabis and genetics. Their company thrives on longlasting relationships with not only vendors but other industry leaders. Their genetics support a large portion of our market here in Oregon, as well as many other states nationwide, including California and Maryland. People drive from all over to purchase products exclusively available at this destination store. Big ups to their garden, @archive_oregon_, for cultivating and extracting that fire!

PRODUCT SELECTION

This is unquestionably a category where this shop thrives. While asking about a few brands that you can always find at their dispensary, I received an overwhelming yet enthusiastic response: Resin Ranchers, Deep Creek Farms, Urban Canna, The Heights, Evans Creek Farms, Happy Cabbage, White Label Extracts, Dirty Arm Farms, Echo Electuary, 7 Points, Elbe’s, Wyld and Lunchbox Alchemy. And when it came to jaw-dropping cultivars from the aforementioned companies, Animals Mints by Evans Creek Farms, Runtz by Resin Ranchers, Moonbow #112 by Archive, Donny Burger #8 by Eugreen Farms, and Ice
Queen by Deep Creek Farms were just a few of the standouts. Additionally, Archive Portland is home to all of their in-house clones, seeds, flower and extremely sought after hash rosin. If you are interested in growing your own Cannabis, come on down and grab some of their prized genetics, including their latest offering: Gelato #25 x Dosidos! Looking for the latest innovations in torches and dabbing? Archive Portland offers a wide range of products such as upgraded blazer torches and futuristic electronic nails from Oregon-based company Scope and Stack @scopeandstack. Make sure to scoop some of their killer apparel as well, featuring collabs with renowned artist Trevy Metal @trevymetal.
