Calyxes Reviews

  • “Very pretty, yet incredibly expensive bud. Moving on to my experience. You physically wrote down my drivers license number, and my name which is not required for a rec purchase. A complete violation of my privacy, why would you do that - do you not understand the requirements in place for rec sales?. And a physical hand-written log? So slow - it took way to long to get checked in. You have two prices on your menu, med and rec, then charge rec tax on top of that price. It really should be included if you are going with the two tier pricing. Or same price for med and rec, and rec has the added tax. Especially for what your charging. Before I came in I thought you were a med focused shop. I know know you are not - as you have almost no edibles and no concentrates. Which is crazy. I know you do clean green and all that, but what does Green Bodhi do with his trim? Why not process in house? Solvent-less rosin tech if you want to be fancy perhaps? Then I asked if you primarily sold to rec or med, being that I really don't know too many med patients that still smoke flower. You answered with about 80% of your business is rec, which makes total sense since you don't offer edibles or concentrates. But you still charge you rec customers more, when they are your main business? Am I subsidizing med patients, because I'm not ok with that. Or am I just being charged more because you think you can get away with it? I'm not ok with that either. If rec is 80% of you business, please operate like it and don't treat them like second-class-citizens. As a rec customer I greatly appreciate the shops that come up with creative promotions that work within the framework of the law. Like a punch card with a $.01 half-gram after your 10th visit. Or something along those lines. I left your shop feeling taken advantage of financially, and feel like my personal info was compromised. Regardless of the quality of the flower, I cannot recommend your shop and won't be returning until you figure out how to better serve you primary customer group, rec customers.”

  • “Used to be my go-to dispensary, the quality of these buds is unsurpassed (very few if any stems) but there are three things you could do better: 1. The potency has gone down. I've gotten some buds that are 26 and 27%. I'm a patient and anything under 24% doesn't help me. 2. Long wait times. You should move patients to the front of the line. 3. Raising prices on high-potency strains on patients to make up for tax. Calyxes was once a place where I could get excellent quality, potent medicine but it seems they are tending to favor the rec customers who will smoke anything. ”

  • “I have never reviewed a dispensary but this one warrants it. Since October, I have been to more than twenty dispensaries throughout the Willamette Valley and I don't even look at other menus anymore. Every strain at Calyxes is a shelf or three above the same or comparable strains elsewhere and always for a better price, especially with the jar discount. I have been coming here for about a month and am extremely disappointed only that I didn't find it sooner. If you are looking for a perfect variety of truly medical-grade flower then do yourself a favor and check it out. Further, the staff are very friendly and the shop atmosphere is relaxing, complete with HD quality images of some of their strains for your viewing pleasure. Finally, I love the nug display and have yet to see anything as creative anywhere else.”

  • “Still my hands down favorite shop in Portland. Great atmosphere, best quality flower in Portland, great budtenders. Just got a gram of Elmer's Glue (looks like it's a combination unique to Calyxes) to combine with a gram of Cannatonic and it's about the best combination for stress, anxiety, and the related muscle tension I've had yet. Even though the Elmer's Glue comes in with a lower THC level then most strains these days (about 14%) the combination provided full body relaxation and a nice mellow high. Only shocker is that the prices on their menu in the shop incorporate the 25% state tax while their menu on Leafly does not. But they've always given me a receipt that's extremely detailed in the price breakdown with loads of information about the strains purchased as well. Also, gotta love their glass jar recycling program. They give you a 5% discount for bringing in your own glass jar to use as a container. And if you don't have one, they use tiny ball jars for containers which are the nicest containers in all of PDX. Just a great shop with awesome flower, fair prices for the amazing quality, and great staff. Highest recommendation.”
