My name is Green, Dr. Green
Dr. Green Bangkok is a warm and cozy three story dispensary located across Asoke from Soi Cowboy, a short five minute walk from the BTS(Asoke) and MRT(Sukhumvit) stations. The décor is all green, inclusive of cannabis plants related to those buds harvested and available in the shop. The staff is friendly and welcoming; the vibe is positive, healthy and relaxed.
Ten strains sit on the counter which greet the customer on the ground floor. Smoking tools, rolling papers and beverages are all available behind the counter. A second floor lounge allows customers to relax and enjoy complimentary drinks and roll their own joints with the use of communal rolling papers and grinder. A third floor is currently under development which promises to provide customers unique cannabis experiences and may feature growing equipment, seeds, lights, tents and nutrients. The space will also be used for workshops on how to use, grow and clone cannabis plants.
Dr. Green’s strains are the center point of the establishment and are professionally grown either by Dr. Green or by local partner farmers. The strains, a diverse group including two unique CBD strains, are arranged based on price (THB 75 to THB 850) and potency. The shop’s strains are high quality and professionally grown and curated. The flowers are grown with a medicinal view in mind and the quality corresponds with the care given to the plants. Customers are invited to judge the quality themselves with smell tests and close views under each strain’s own magnifying apparatus. The staff stands ready to describe each strain, its effects and its origins.
The goal of the shop “is to be a safe place, with a family vibe, where anyone can come, even if it’s just for a talk or to learn about the plant.”
Dr. Green: Surgeon
Dr. Green is a successful surgeon and educator passionate about the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. She was amongst the first doctors to apply for a medical cannabis license in Thailand when it became available four years ago and is a strong advocate for the use of cannabis as a treatment for ailments. A month after cannabis’s legalization, Dr. Green MD opened Dr. Green Bangkok, the dispensary, with her friend and business partner to provide access to cannabis from a medicinal and health point of view.
Dr. Green’s passion for cannabis corresponds to that of the Hippocratic Oath: doing no harm, respecting previous scientific gains, and developing and sharing knowledge. “Cannabis is far more than just a way to get high. THC is the most famous cannabinoid but we cannot forget about CBD, CBG, CBN, THCV and terpenes, all well known for their various medicinal properties on top of being able to enhance the therapeutic properties of cannabis. That is why we are involved in farming and research. In the near future we will present specific locally grown strains covering all types of cannabinoids. There is so much potential in cannabis, we have a duty to continue exploring and discovering the health benefits.”
Dr. Green: Farmer and Educator
Dr. Green and her team have been legally growing Cannabis for the last two years with an emphasis on high quality CBD. “We were growing potent CBD strains indoors for extraction purposes to make CBD oils. Our next crop will still have CBD but with added THC strains.” Indeed, the CBD strains at Dr. Green are of the highest quality this commentator has seen and we look forward to experience the strains developed and grown Dr. Green’s Master grower Khun Matt.
Dr. Green is an advocate of Thai Cannabis Culture and sees cultivation of local strains as a means to promote it: “We love the work of Arjan Roskam and Franco Loja, the original strain hunters from Greenhouse Amsterdam, they motivated us to build a library of local strains that we could develop and pass to the next generations of local growers. We see all dispensaries and local growers as a big family of passionate people. Legalization is a gift for Thailand, being able to be part of it is a dream come true.”
“We are glad that the “toxic bricks” days are part of the past. Users can finally purchase organic and pesticide free buds, without the fear of being poisoned or locked up. The future of cannabis in Thailand is very bright, the knowledge and skills of local growers are amazing, there is no doubt the country will grow the highest quality flowers in the upcoming month and will put Thailand on the map, side by side with the best growers from America or the Netherlands.”
Conclusion, Dr. Green: Artist
Dr. Green’s scientific process and her professionalism are great contributions to the Thai cannabis community and culture. Her thoughtfulness and dedication are evident in her products (covered in separate strain reviews) and her relationships with growers and consumers. Dr. Green’s medicinal work in cannabis has made science an art form.
We at HighThailand are particularly grateful to be the beneficiaries of Dr. Green’s good medicine and her fine art. We highly recommend this dispensary and their beautifully grown cannabis.
