Medically Endorsed

Certified Medical Marijuana Consultants 8am-8pm

We have been providing safe access, education, and consultation for patients since 2011.

Our first access point, Dockside Co-op, served our wonderful patients in downtown Fremont from 2011 to 2016. In the wake of the I-502 Bill passing, medical dispensaries were forced into recreational stores that were able to qualify for medical endorsements. Unfortunately, zoning laws prevented our Fremont location from obtaining a recreational license and we were required to close. Happily, we received medical endorsements at both of our recreational locations shortly thereafter. We look forward to welcoming new patients and familiar faces alike as we continue to do our best to serve patients with educated, compassionate and well-trained staff at Dockside Cannabis stores located in SoDo and Shoreline.

Dockside is committed to Medical Marijuana

In accordance with the law, access to patient discounts, medical possession limits, and consultations with our certified medical cannabis consultants are only available to those who have a medical marijuana authorization form issued by a WA State health care provider on the standardized two page form provided by the department of health. Once you have an authorization, bring it to us in store along with a valid form of government issued ID. We will enter you into the state database and print a free MMJ recognition card for you. Once you’ve obtained your recognition card, you won’t have to present your authorization on future visits.

Medical Marijuana Patients Get Exclusive Benefits at Dockside Cannabis

  • Access to our knowledgeable consultants: Specific advice on how our products can help your symptoms or condition.

General Benefits Offered to Registered Medical Marijuana Patients

  • Purchases free of the 9.6% sales tax
  • Purchase and possession allowance up to 3x the limit for a recreational user:
    • 3 ounces of dried marijuana
    • 21 grams of concentrate

    • 216 ounces of edibles in liquid form
  •  Permission to grow 6-15 plants, depending on your doctor’s recommendation, and possess up to 8 ounces of cannabis from those plants for your personal use. This compares to 4 plants as a MMJ patient who has not registered, and 0 plants for the recreational user.
  • Higher-THC products, when they become available
  • ”Affirmative defense” in a court of law that greatly increases the chance of defeating or mitigating the legal consequences of conduct considered unlawful at some levels of government.

What to Expect Each Time You Visit

The WA State Department of Health requires that we verify your card each time you visit with us. This is a simple process that does not reveal any of your personal information. Should you need specific advice with regard to cannabis as medicine, you can request the help of a medical marijuana consultant (MMC). We have a dedicated staff member nearly every day from 8 AM to 8 PM (and often longer!) who has gone through the proper training to advise you on the right product for your needs with the assurance of complete confidentiality. To be sure that you will be able to meet with one of our MMC’s when you arrive at our store, we encourage you to call ahead to confirm that they’ll be available. Perhaps you already know exactly what you are looking for; in that case, any of our knowledgeable associates can help you locate your ideal products. When you arrive at the register, you’ll be asked to present your ID and MMJ recognition card one last time. By entering your card number into our point-of-sale system, we’ll access your account, allowing us to remove the sales tax from your purchases. From there, we’ll apply an additional discount and proceed with the transaction!
