Let's get Enlightened

OUR STORY

We are a family owned and operated recreational cannabis store in Anchorage, Alaska. Opening our doors in 2017, we were one of the first retails shops in Anchorage! We view ourselves as stewards of the cannabis industry, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

As a shop, we hold a strong belief in the positive, healing properties of cannabis.

At Enlighten Alaska, we cultivate a space for Quality Service, Education, Respect, Integrity, Innovation, and

good vibes.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to offer high quality cannabis products while promoting safe, responsible consumption, and maintaining the highest standards of business ethics, community engagement, and sound wellness principles.

 

We strive to elevate and support our community to live healthy and inspired lives. 

 
 

OUR SPACE

Whether you’re trying cannabis for the very first time or a seasoned user, you’ll feel right at home with our passionate and knowledgeable staff. 

We are located in the heart of Spenard, on the corner of 26th and Spenard Rd. We are across the street from the white windmill at Koots, and in the same strip mall as Organic Oasis and Anchorage Cycle.
