Hummingbird Healing Center open

The Hummingbird Healing Center has re-opened its doors after fixing a permitting issue.

Medical marijuana patients can register at their office in Burre Center at 906 Myrtle Avenue.

Earlier: Eureka gets a pot club after all

    That’s good news. Hummingbird was a great dispensary, Rita and Sara are top notch budtenders (if they are still there.),. Let’s hope it is just as good as when they were closed down.

    It’s on the Green Route for you bus riders.

    The Humboldt County Collective opened up a building or two away in their absence so now you can visit two dispensaries with one trip.

    have a peaceful day,

    Rita is there. Sara (who was a college housemate of mine and is a good friend) is doing other things.

    Oh, and one correction Heraldo. They are on Myrtle Ave, but outside of city limits. Their CUP is with the County.

  4. July 16, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Yes, outside city limits but still Eureka.

    Not a pharmacy. Regulated by a state board. Just a club. Like where you go to socialize, hear music, drink. You dont even have to deal with ATF. You stoners can even get a bus ride to the location. If you all followed the pharmacy law, you would find gross violation. But we all know it is just recreation, turned into dependency and abuse. Ending with damage to mental capacity.

    Well it’s pretty damn close to Eureka, anyway. The city limit is at Harrison. If I recall correctly, all the houses and offices on one side of Harrison are inside the city, and the ones on the other side are in the unincorporated county area. (If you had a dispute with your neighbor across the street, and each of you called the cops to report it, I guess both EPD and HumCo Sheriffs would show up? I’m not sure if both of them would deal with it, or they’d flip a coin, or what.)

    Anyway, the area those two cannabis dispensaries are in is also called Myrtletown (for obvious reasons). I guess you could call it part of “Greater Eureka” — but the cynic in me insists that phrase has a bit of an oxymoronic ring to it.

    Actually, it doesn’t work that way. You aren’t allowed to smoke anything at the dispensary. The regs are pretty tight, with requirements not being put on any similar business. They are required to have cameras 24 hours, a security guard, and much more. Only registered patients are allowed on site. You get your stuff, and you go. Plus, Hummingbird offers other healing herbs and services as well. Make no mistake, they take their healing mission very seriously.

    Welcome to 1934, would you like a ticket to “reefer madness”?

    They are “in” Eureka like the proposed goat farm was “in” Arcata…

    If pot collectives followed pharmacy regulations, they would be shut down for dispensing a schedule I substance. Pharmacies also don’t keep raw herbs behind the prescription counter. Collectives not following pharmacy regulations is an irrelavant conclusion.

    I hope they carry the same cookies that they had before. I’m tired of baking my own.

    Also on the Purple Route. Green/Purple routes, perf.

  13. July 17, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    Hummingbird Healing and The Humboldt County Collective are close to the Purple Route but the closest Purple stop is a couple blocks away.@ Harrison & Myrtle where it turns southbound. So if you don’t mind walking a couple blocks the Purple is just fine. The Green stays on Myrtle for a couple more blocks then heads east on Park. Get off the Green Route on Park for the dispensaries. Look for the Subway Shop, the dispensaries are across the street from it. Hummingbird is in the newer building with a podiatrist just to the west of the smoke shop. THC is behind the tattoo shop & the smoke shop.

    From downtown take the Purple and transfer @ Silvercrest or Harrison. Tell the driver you need to transfer when you get on the Purple sometimes they don’t stop @ silvercrest.

    Green runs once an hour during the week, enough time to buy your medicine and maybe get a taco off the truck.

    You can register in person @ THC but you have to go to Hummingbirds office in Eureka to pre register before going to the dispensary.

    I have been to both places they are both pleasant and clean.

    have a peaceful day,

    It’s astonishing, “funnygirl” how many doctor’s prescriptions for medicinal alcohol were written during the alcohol prohibition.

    Thousands of them it turns out.

    They were written for pain relief, insomnia, anxiety etc. etc.

    Something else for you to wonder about now. That makes two.

    Glory Be!

    have a peaceful day,

    “Modern readers in the grip of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s prose may not recognize the meaning of Tom Buchanan’s insight, but Fitzgerald knew his contemporaries would understand. In 1925, when The Great Gatsby was published, the meaning of “drugstores” was as clear as gin: Those were the places you went to get medically prescribed alcohol, a legally acceptable source of liquor during all 13 years of Prohibition.

    Sound familiar? To any modern Californian, of course it does.

    For most of the 1920s, a patient could get a prescription for one pint every 10 days about as easily as California patients can now get “recommendations” for medical marijuana. All it took to acquire a liquor prescription was cash — generally about $3, the equivalent of about $40 today — placed in the hand of an agreeable doctor. It cost $3 to $4 more to have it filled by the local pharmacist. ”

    Which one is run by the money grubbing former owner of Salon Eclipse? There’s a stand up guy,spends his life savings to build his ultimate salon,sees all the money in a pot dispensary (I hear his green thumb is non existent despite the effort) closes shop in the middle of the night and moves to the legal pot dealer trade. Commendable to say the least

    Smoke Monster you keep posting about Bill Byron. What is your problem with him? Closing
    down a hair salon? Not being an expert pot grower? You keep saying guy from Salon Eclips like you don’t know exactly what you are talking about. Articulate.

    Smoke monster probably hasn’t found a new stylist it’s comfortable with yet so it’s feeling a bit frumpy and out of sorts.

    I post about numerous subjects you only notice the ones that affect you it seems.

    He’s a piece of shit with little mans complex.
    I could care less that he failed at salon eclipse,just as he failed at truck driving. He’s a life long failure.that part is actually funny to me.

    I just think people should be aware of what types run the clinic.

    So answer the question,which clinic does the midget run since he’s so empathetic to the needs of 215 patients,,errr is in it for the money

    Actually, this issue doesn’t affect me in the slightest. I just found it hilarious that you are so upset over the closure of a beauty salon. There’s a smallness about you unrelated to physical size, but more than enough hate, jealousy and spite for 10 people.

    Jane,slow down and figure out why I would even be talking to you at all with my last post. The anon had stated I’m always commenting on lil bill, I stated they only pay attention around here to posts concerning him.
    I find it funny people can bash hi-fi or others with opposing views but anyone else is off limits.
    Go ahead and stand up for someone that you obviously know nothing about.
    Do you think any local employees,customers were F’d over when he closed up and switched over to legal weed dealer with “budtenders”(cute do they put that on their 1040). But hey F wal mart they kill communities.
    If you want to attempt subtle personal attacks over this you must be bored.go feed the cats,get over your self inflated board ego.you’re in a glass house with a bucket of marbles and a slingshot right now

    Smokey, slow down and figure out that I wasn’t defending anyone. I was laughing at you. I don’t know Bill Byron or care about what he does with his money or his salon. In most salons hairdressers aren’t employees of the salon but independent contractors who pay rent. Since there are other salons with vacant booths and their clients can be easily notified and follow them, your angst is hilarious. It seems likely that you have a personal issue with Mr. Byron unrelated to his pot store, but that’s just a guess.

    I used to have my doubts about Marijuana being medicinal.
    know I doubt that any place that sells it is non profit.
    I don’t doubt that it helps for what I need it for, that’s not to get high
    it’s to get by by not feeling like puking anxiety lack of rest worry about what everybody else thinks syndrome.
