Top Shelf Herbs of Alaska is a fairly new store that opened this year, however they are on the right track when it comes to the high quality of cannabis they are carrying in-store. They claim to be a “cut above the rest” and they aren’t lying! Their flower and concentrates are some of if not the best in Anchorage!

The thing that sets them apart from other growers/dispensaries is that they hand-pick all the strains and flower that comes into their shop – so you know you’ll always receive the highest quality.
#8 - Catalyst Cannabis Company
Catalyst Cannabis Company is a very clean and respectful dispensary in Anchorage. The team at Catalyst is dedicated to providing one of the best customer experiences in Alaska. They give you 10% off your second visit, and 15% off your third visit.
I really like Catalyst Cannabis for the reason that they are focused on saving and sustaining the environment in Alaska. They use living soils and only registered fertilizers in their cultivation process, so their organic flower is to absolutely die for! Also offering a reusable-jar program that helps minimize waste in the area.
All of that in conjunction with their well-educated staff makes the expereicne at Catalyst unlike any other in the Anchorage area.
#9 - Pakalolo Oceanside
Pakalolo Supply Oceanside is a little bit different take on the cannabis arena in Anchorage. All of their strains and genetics were formed and cultivated in Hawaii – bringing a portion of the Aloha state to the Great North of Alaska.
Now, just because they aren’t from Alaska doesn’t mean they don’t have the quality and standards that the others do here. Pakalolo’s staff is so friendly, it’ll have you wanting to stay and chat rather than grabbing your bag and heading out the door.
Their flower and edibles are off the charts, and is a nice change of pace from the other shops that carry Alaska grown strains and products. We highly recommend Pakalolo Supply to anyone in Anchorage looking for an awesome cannabis experience!
