Meet Sally: The Visionary Behind the Goddess

Embarking on the journey of creating and operating the Goddess dispensary has been the most exhilarating adventure of Sally’s life. With each passing year, she finds herself amazed at how everything has seamlessly fallen into place, attributing much of the store’s success to the incredible people who surround her.

Sally firmly believes that the key to the Goddess’s success lies in her dedicated and knowledgeable staff, many of whom have been by her side for years. Their professionalism and unwavering commitment to the store’s mission have contributed greatly to its growth and reputation within the community.

Beyond her staff, Sally is deeply grateful for the support of the Ashcreek and Crestwood neighborhood associations in Portland. Their backing has been instrumental in fostering a sense of belonging and connection within the local community.

As a true cannabis enthusiast, Sally has a special affinity for the XJ-13 strain, sourced from Nebadon Farms. This particular strain holds a special place in her heart for its ability to alleviate anxiety and depression while promoting clarity of thought. Affectionately dubbed “Prozac in a pipe” by Sally and her team, XJ-13 has remained a beloved favorite among customers for over a decade.

Looking ahead, Sally is eager to continue meeting and connecting with fellow cannabis lovers, sharing her passion for the plant and its myriad benefits. Whether you’re a seasoned enthusiast or a curious newcomer, Sally welcomes you to swing by the Goddess and say “Hi” to the Original Goddess – she’d love to meet you and share in the joy of cannabis together!

Joined The Goddess: August 2023

Zodiac Sign: Taurus

Favorite Products:

  • Mr. Moxey Relief Mints
  • Blue Dream – Oregon Roots
  • Farmer’s Friend Tinctures

With an impressive 18-year tenure in the US Navy, Alicia stands as a seasoned veteran of service to her country. Her military career, however, was not without its challenges. Alicia’s journey took an unexpected turn during the war in Iraq when she was injured, altering her path and leading her to make difficult decisions about her future.

Despite her unwavering dedication to the Navy, Alicia faced the harsh reality of her injuries, which ultimately led to her early retirement. Struggling with chronic pain that hindered her ability to work, Alicia found herself navigating the complex world of healthcare, initially relying on opioids prescribed by the VA to manage her discomfort. Witnessing firsthand the devastating impact of opioid abuse and overdoses, Alicia sought a safer, more natural alternative.

Driven by a desire for healing and a quest for holistic wellness, Alicia embarked on her cannabis journey. Despite facing barriers from the VA’s restrictions on prescribing cannabis products, Alicia remained undeterred, determined to explore the potential benefits of this plant-based medicine.

Her journey led her from sunny Southern California back to the Pacific Northwest, where she discovered a sense of home and belonging. Through trial and experimentation, Alicia found the perfect balance of cannabis and lifestyle that worked for her, paving the way for her own journey to self-healing.

Today, Alicia’s passion for cannabis extends beyond her personal experience. As a budtender, artist, and practicing witch, she combines her love for the plant with her creative pursuits and spiritual beliefs, living her best life with the assistance of this magical little plant.

Driven by a desire to share her knowledge and experiences, Alicia hopes to empower others on their own paths to wellness, offering guidance and support rooted in her journey to self-discovery and the healing power of plant-based medicine.
