At Zion we believe in providing the finest cannabis flower, concentrates, topicals and edibles to our customers.
Our mission is to provide the cleanest products to our customers – which is why we believe in rigorous pesticide screening and detailed terpene profiling. Our team of exceptional budtenders are community driven and will help you find the safest and highest quality medical and recreational grade cannabis to fit your exact needs.
Visit our Portland marijuana dispensary, perfectly nestled in the southwest corner of downtown between Portland State University & OHSU or our NEW location in Ontario, Oregon located next to the bowling alley.
Long before we broke ground on our downtown Portland dispensary, we spent considerable time toiling over what the ideal OMMP dispensary would look like. We knew from the outset that we would only carry the very best medical cannabis products available. But after many days of careful consideration, we discovered that we all share some other core values: (1) education; (2) safety; and (3) community. We value you being educated about how to find the best possible strain for your medical condition, so we’ve integrated terpene profiling into our menu system and hired the most brilliant budtenders in Portland and Ontario to answer your questions. We value your safety, so we set a new standard for pesticide screening well above what the law requires. And we value your community. Because it’s our community too, and unlike any other industry, the cannabis industry should be about coming together as a community, because it’s been a long struggle to get where we are today.
We are also extremely excited to bring you online sales for pickup in our lobby. Because we know you get busy, and saving you some time is the least we can do to help.
As the cannabis industry grows and evolves, we plan to remain on the cusp of new medical research and patient delivery methods. Like any other new company, we have big plans to grow, and we hope you will grow with us. So come in and see us. See what we’re doing different. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Zion Cannabis is Ontario’s newest cannabis shop located at 340 SE 13th St, Ontario, OR 97914 right next to the bowling alley. We have a number of your favorites and new exciting product lines you will only find at our shop.
During Covid-19 we want to ensure our customers we provide a clean and safe environment. Our employees have masks and we are offering curbside pickup.

Have you ever wondered why the cannabis plant takes on so many different smells and flavors? The culprit is terpenes – the small molecules found in the glandular trichomes of the cannabis flower that jump out of a bag of top-shelf cannabis and smack you pleasantly in the nose. There are over 200 different terpenes found in the cannabis plant, but a few appear much more regularly. Every cannabis strain has a unique terpene profile based on its genetic makeup, allowing cannabis connoisseurs the ability to distinguish among various stains based on smell alone.
Even more exciting than flavor profiles, however, is the revelation that terpene structures also contribute to the overall effect of cannabis on the user. When terpenes interact with cannabinoids like THC and CBD, they change how the cannabinoids effect the user, thus altering the strain’s effect. This synergy is commonly known as the “entourage effect,” and it explains why every strain seems to have a different “high.” If you’ve ever wondered why a sativa-leaning hybrid like Blue Dream gives you energy and gets your creative juices flowing, but strong indicas like Kush leave you melting into your couch, the answer is that they contain different concentrations of key terpenes Myrcene and Pinene.
And that’s not all. Terpenes also offer serious medicinal and therapeutic value. Terpenes have been identified as effective in treating inflammation, ulcers, pain, heartburn, anxiety, acne, asthma, sleeplessness, depression, fungus, and bacterial infections.
At Zion, we feel that knowing the terpene profile of the strains we sell is crucial to providing you with the information you need to make informed purchase decisions. Unlike most dispensaries, we test the terpene profile of all our strains, and we’ve integrated these terpene profiles into our menu along with the THC and CBD content. It’s part of our commitment to providing you with the best possible cannabis shopping experience.
Please, take some time to continue reading and familiarize yourself with five of the most important terpenes found in cannabis. Then, when you visit our store or order online (coming soon!), take note of the terpene profiles we provide for our strains. In no time, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a true cannabis connoisseur.
