How Terpenes Influence Marijuana

Smell is a great indicator of quality marijuana and you can thank terpenes for strains with the aroma of lemons, fruity pebbles or even diesel. Terpenes are natural compounds found in many plants and every kind has its own unique smell. Many terpenes are used to make perfumes, essential oils, medicines and more. Research about terpenes is rapidly expanding and we're learning more about their effect on the potency of marijuana and the kind of high you experience.

Violence at Higher Leaf Kirkland

Violence erupted on Saturday night, February 11th, at Higher Leaf’s Kirkland location when an intoxicated customer entered the store with his female companion. The security team at Higher Leaf immediately noticed that the customer appeared to be intoxicated and he was asked to leave. He refused and the Higher Leaf team swiftly took action, trying to calm the customer down and encourage him to leave the store.
