Alternative Therapies Group (ATG) Reviews

  • “I wished I lived closer, It's a journey to get there because I live on the S Shore and I got a truck so it's a 2 hour drive and I take the trains instead so I only went once but am planning on another trip soon, I make a day out of it and take in the sights. I went for the Gorrilla Glue when it hit the scene last fall and was all the talk. It was hands down some of the most potent freshest bud I ever saw and it's appearance was just flawless. It's around now and I just got a batch that was as good from a delivery service. Thank god because heading up to Salem is a trip but one I really cherished after my mother died last August I really hit a rut, stayed inside for a few months and wouldn't go out and the day trip up there was memorable after that. I also had my expectations exceeded. Like I said I will be making a trip again for fun soon.”

  • “Very professional staff. I wish they would extend their hours just a bit. Their flowers are very high quality but dry. They have a nice selection of buds but tend to run out quick.”

  • “I've gone here several times, and usually get great customer service. However, I've purchased every type of flower on the menu (several times each), and it seems they are poorly trimming their flowers on purpose. If not, why no change? I've heard customers complaining in house, on here (and others like weedmaps), even on Google! The last two packages I purchased had 50% leaves or more, super dry, hardly any actual flower, little to no medical efficacy. You're probably thinking "why didn't this guy look at the product and the turn it down? They don't even let you look at the product before purchasing! ”

  • “Always a stress free experience. Yes, the buds could use better trimming but it's a work in progress and they are trying hard. Everybody that I have encountered here has been very nice.”

  • “This place is very sanitary and definitely has a sterile, medical vibe going on, which you want when you're buying legal pot. Their bud is good, though it could use more descriptions on their site beyond basic chemistry and genetics, but the real hit is their CO2-derived concentrates. THOSE ARE AMAZING.”

  • “one of the only dispensaries in the area to have a true cbd strain. I wish they would weight it out in front of you. cash only, no edibles and limited. selection..but worth it for the cbd bud. hope to see their menu expand!”

  • “The flower was ok, I've been using the o-pen vape cartridges which have been amazing. The flower on the other hand... Horrible trimming... I pay for bud, not lazily trimmed buds... The amount of leaves remaining on the bus was completely unacceptable in my eyes, definitely something they need to work on... Quality of the bud was good, but the trimming was subpar to pathetic... Not sure if it was done intentionally to keep the weight up, or what, but that would have to change for me in order to use this place consistently. ”

  • “Honestly, I'm very torn when it comes to ATG. great staff both friendly and knowledgeable the multiple times i visited. The product was always very dried out probably to avoid mold while prepacked but it had good flavors and effects. The problem I had was pricing and the fact everything is prepacked, you cant inspect your product prior to purchase, heck you can even see it because its all locked away under lock and key hidden which kills the atmosphere of an already depressing feel of being inside the old brick building with flourescent lights. Thats my other real gripe but its the cities fault for making them go to an industrial building for a retail store because theyre too scared to put cannabis in the light.”

  • “Salem local here, and am really dissatisfied with this place. The flowers are good but its a dispensary they should be good. Also they could be trimmed alot better. They rarely have sativa plants because they dont yield as much flower(what i was told). Which is a poor excuse for they dont get enough money off them. Also theyre oils are over priced and very low levels of thc for oils. They still dont have edibles which is ridiculous seeing some people can only eat there thc. Every other dispensary has edibles and they have all opened months after the Salem dispensary opened. This place doesnt cater to the medical needs of there patients. They are just interested in taking there money. They are also looking to open a second location, what a joke!”

    We are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied. Here is an article which explains why there is a limited selection of Sativas: http://atgma.org/blog/Introducing-New-Genetics As far as pricing, ATG offers the lowest prices of all the dispensaries in the state.
