“While this dispensary does have a consistently fantastic selection of recreational flowers, the real high point for me is the staff. Everyone that works at Botanica is clearly there because they love what they do; they are always incredibly friendly, helpful, and patient. I have learned to trust their recommendations and am always thrilled with the results.
The space is a tiny bit cramped and if they only have two budtenders working, it can feel like you're holding up the line sometimes. Additionally, you may have to wait a little bit in the lobby as there isn't a dedicated check-in person... but to be honest, having to wait in the lobby means to me that they are taking time and care for each and every customer/patient, which you'll see when it's your turn to go in!
All in all, this is my favorite dispensary. I'd highly recommend checking it out, plus you get a nice little discount coupon your first time in, which did get me back in the doors again.”
“So, I've been here a few times now, as well as the one on Foster (which has a better selection!), and I've been pretty impressed. They have a number of growers but it's mostly Vita Organics, which seems to be in house. I've tried a few of their strains, and I've been exceedingly impressed.
They have classics and cool new strains I've never seen before, as well as an amazing selection of CBD stuff. They have this one strain that has 23% CBD, that's ridiculous. All the flower they carry is gorgeous and has a deep bouquet, but I've been particularly fond of their Matanuska Thunderfuck and Deep Purple. I've really not seen this much consistency in quality at many dispensaries.
The last time I went in I wanted the Gorilla Glue but was convinced to get the Bruce Banner. I was pretty skeptical before I tried it but when I did I was so happy to find that was EXACTLY what I had been wanting. Andrew, the guy who runs their Instagram, is super knowledgable when it comes to cannabis, it's great to talk about the plants with him, and he's very helpful with effects, and ALSO believes in trusting your nose.
I've felt really comfy in both locations. The people are great and so is their flower. Thanks for doing what you do!”
“I've been to this location many times, and the one in SE is pretty awesome as well. They always have a great selection of high CBD buds, and all of their products are priced quite fairly. The staff have always been very friendly, knowledgeable, and seem to really take their time with each individual. Would highly recommend.”
“This place is pretty standard for Portland. The people are alright, not overly friendly and knowledgable, but they have a decent selection of product. Biggest complaint is that they are constantly making their top-shelf flower only available by the gram”
