Alternative Therapies Group (ATG) Reviews

  • “I'm a little annoyed with the oil cartridges I purchased for the 1st time. The dude said like 1-2% will be defective and may clog...well I got one and 1/3 way threw the cartridge it clogged and the juice backed up in part of the chamber that isn't accessible. Went back yesterday and got a new one and they gave me one without any problems, however today I started using it for the same exact thing to happen at 1/4 way threw. Now I have to make a 3rd trip there this week! The bud was okay, but i don't think I would continue buying unless I get a good discount ”

  • “Ok, so if you want it REAL here we go... I've seen the best Buds/Flowers from Holland and all around the world so here's my review of ATG in Salem, MA. I drove up to this place and it was as expected. Parking lot with plenty of spots and a guard checking ID which is great. Then you go inside... Being that I was a first time patient I had to watch a 6 min video about the do's and do not's about using MM which is completely fine with me. After that, you take a number, like at a deli (literally) in a supermarket. When you walk into the main space there are the different flowers they have on display in glass cases to the right so you can see what they look like. Mind you, these specimens are the best they have. The buds you get are not manicured as well as the ones in the cases, and YOU CAN'T LOOK AT or SMELL THE FLOWERS YOU ARE ABOUT TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON!!!!! For me, in my honest opinion, this is the most important thing to me when buying high end EXPENSIVE herbals. If you want to have a high end experience... for instance enjoying a nice tasting of wine or cheese etc.. before you by the product, this might not be the best place for you. Also... other dispensary's give a first time patient discount.... The last dispensary I went to in Brookline gave me a 49.00 credit for my first visit.”

  • “Service and atmosphere are great but I have tried every strain they offer, whether it's indica, sativa, or hybrid, as well as the vials and nothing seems to work. Maybe my tolerance has been built up to a very high standard but I can smoke all their stuff til I'm blue in the face and won't feel a thing ”

  • “I was very happy, first security is excellent. I suggest you bring cash, there is ATM outside if needed. I was very happy with selection. I purchased two chambers of oil that really helped my health issues.”

  • “They may not have as much as the Brookline dispensary but they have hands down the BEST vape cartridges. Nobody has come close. It's CO2 extracted and is so healthy and clean. Telling you. And they are getting more stuff everyday. I'm loyal to ATG now ”

  • “I went in for my first time nervous and full of anxiety (as that is my main reason for medicating). I was greeted warmly at the door and the front window. I went through a metal detector and was buzzed in. Ok, not what I expected. From the outside, a brick building that is in need of some flowers, color. Inside is wonderful with colorful local art, great music and a relaxed waiting room that was pretty full of people, yet everyone was talking to each other. Right off it was a very friendly atmosphere. I was greeted and introduced to ATG by a really nice girl and a short video that's in a separate room. After that, I grabbed a number and waited about 20 minutes that flew by. I have really bad social and generalized anxiety and met some really nice people I talked to my whole wait. I got to the counter and was even more nervous because I didn't know what I needed and had no clue weed was this detailed. Kate was one of the kindest, most patient people I have ever met. She made me feel comfortable immediately and answered all my questions, even related her own anxiety to mine. I didn't feel rushed at all, which I get really weary of if I know people are waiting lol. She recommended two strains for me and it's been 3 days and I already feel so much better. Not to mention, the entire staff was so friendly and easy going. It's just a place that you leave feeling happier not just from the medicine but from the experience.”

  • “honestly there gorilla glue #4 is Fuego. better than *most* caregivers bud but not all. but I just dont understand stand one thing. I thought dispensary's had to grow from seed only. yet gorilla glue is a clone only strain. so you cant grow it from seed. its passed through the marijuana underworld. its impossible to grow it from seed unless its Backcrossed or its not really gg#4 and its a cross. so which one is it????”

    Comment from Alternative Therapies Group (ATG)

    Good question. ATG has never advertised this strain as Gorilla Glue #4. It is a back-cross, for which seeds are readily available.

  • “I love this place. It is so quick and easy, even when it's super busy, the longest I've ever waited is 20 mins. The oils are amazing, hands down the best. The flower, yes we get sick of the same ones for too long, but it is what it is. The staff is excellent, the security is friendly and makes you feel safe. I've been a bunch of times but mostly am helped by Ben or Kate. They are so friendly, funny, and informative and never make me feel anything but welcome. They have answered all of my questions and are just great down to earth people. It seems they all are. Anyway, I would go for sure!!”

  • “Ok, so I agree that this place is slipping, I have been a faithful patient since the beginning. The lack of product really is a problem and I'm sure they are aware of this. What I do know is when they get caught up and the Craft reserve, Captains Cake, and edibles are in, everyone who left a negative review should go visit. You will be glad you did. I love the staff but lately as far as service goes, there is one girl that is miserable, loud, and completely inappropriate and disrespectful. I would recommend trying to go to any of the guys or the blonde girl in the middle as they are so informative and make you feel at home in a way. I know you guys will come back!!”
