Uplift Botanicals is located on 33rd and Killingsworth, across the street from New Seasons. Concordia Ale House shares the same building, as does a glass shop. There's Cannon's Rib Express and a Hot Lips across the street in the New Seasons lot. The storefront is well-lit, and the staff is experienced enough to hash it up with insiders and patient enough to walk through newcomers. The bud is solid. Everything about Uplift Botanicals is pretty good. It's the kind of shop you'd be relatively content to have in your neighborhood, just like all those other things I mentioned.
