Ounce of Change: The Latest Pot/Hemp News

The shop is reminiscent of upscale cannabis dispensaries in Portland — sleek, modern, but with an organic feel.

It carries everything from top-shelf CBD oil to CBD-infused dog treats. A sensory bar lets customers look at CBD flowers (even under magnifying glasses) and smell them through a vented lid. Displays describe the herb's effects.
