FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WHAT IS DELI-STYLE?
A: Deli-Style means that your buds are NEVER pre-packaged, getting drier and drier as each day goes by. All of our flower is kept in humidity controlled jars and is weighed to order right in front of you. We can weigh to any dollar amount and there is no minimum, so it’s no problem if you only have a few dollars to spend! Anywhere between 0.1 grams and 1 ounce, our Deli-Style system is the best in the area!
Q: WHAT IS THE GREEN JAR STANDARD?
A: Green Jar has an extensive vetting process in order for vendors and Alaskan cultivators to be sold within our store. Our procurement manager goes to inspect each cultivation to ensure they meet our high standard of cleanliness and have proper procedures to guarantee that our customers will be receiving the highest quality cannabis. That is not all though, Green Jar goes above and beyond by doing a double inspection with every batch of flower that comes into our store. Our procurement manager puts them under a microscope to inspect for any molds or mildews, if found the batch is rejected and is either sent back with the cultivator or destroyed. By shopping with Green Jar you can rest assured knowing you are getting premium Alaskan cannabis.
Q: WHAT IS THE ALASKA INDUSTRIAL HEMP PROGRAM?
A: It is more, and more common now to find CBD products at every store you are in including gas stations! Unfortunately most of those products are “snake oil”, and actually contain little to no CBD. All CBD products carried at Green Jar have been vetted and approved by the Alaska’s Industrial Hemp Program and Green Jar requires third party testing. Most of our CBD products are made locally and all have testing results, which are available for you to view when requested!
Q: WHERE DO ALL THE CANNABIS PRODUCTS COME FROM?
A: Per our regulations all cannabis flower and cannabis products must be grown and manufactured within the State of Alaska. Green Jar procures the best from all around the state from Juneau, Sitka, Fairbanks, Kenai and more! Know when you are shopping with Green Jar you are truly shopping locally and supporting your friends and neighbors from across our great state.
Q: WHAT IS THE BEST METHOD OF CANNABIS CONSUMPTION TO A NEW USER?
A: At Green Jar we recommend a joint. We feel strongly that first time users should experience the flower as a whole. When you start isolating molecules or concentrating them the cannabis products changes in euphoria. And over consumption with edibles and concentrates are very easily done. However, the smallest and easiest way to consume is one small puff of a joint. You can put a joint out, euphoira set in within seconds and the euphoria dissipates within an hour or two. Versus edibles where it can be 4+ hours of euphoria. If you are a first time consumer we highly recommend a cannabis joint for your first experience.
