Do you have Flower/Prerolls/Carts/Vapes?

We do not. According to the state of Iowa, we are not allowed to have any product that is either combustible or inhalable in a recreational shop.



What types of products do you have?

We currently carry a variety of Delta 9 THC edibles and beverages, Delta 8 THC edibles and beverages, and non-THC products, such as Amanita mushroom products, Nootropic mushroom products, and Mad Honey.


What are Delta 9 and Delta 8?

Delta 9 is the shorthand scientific term for standard THC, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. This is usually a more head-oriented experience but can be steered depending on whether the specific product is Sativa, Hybrid, or Indica leaning. Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol is usually not as intense, and is primarily body oriented.

What are Sativa, Hybrid, and Indica?


Sativa is usually a functional experience, primarily with uplifting, euphoric, and anti-anxiety effects. Indica is a more relaxing experience, but can also help with nausea and is an appetite enhancer. Hybrid is a combination of both.
