Bastyr Dispensary is expanding your access to its high-quality herbs and tinctures by allowing over-the-counter purchases of up to 2 ounces of a variety of loose herbs, teas and single tinctures.

Prescriptions still are required for low-dose herbs, Chinese herbs and custom blends, which means you can only purchase one variety of herb or tincture per container. Click here to see a list of available bulk items.
