“I have visited Central Ave a handful of times and wanted it to be at least ok since it's the closest to my house. To put it simple they are progressively getting worse each visit. Though the wait time is very short (if any at all), the consistency of the product is very poor. There is long stretches of time when items (not specific to strains) will be sold out/out of stock, and there estimated back in stock times have been way out of reality. Once finally back in stock you never really know if you are actually getting the same thing as last time and from my experiences it is unlikely that you will. I have tried a few different flowers and took a liking to 2 specific strains (GSC and Dakini). Of course when I saw the strains were back in stock I stopped in to get more. The variation from batch to batch is baffling and I am hard pressed to believe they were actually the same at all. From color to flavor they were not even similar, and of course you can't see a sample or anything before you purchase it. I honestly can't comment on their knowledge of medicinal uses, as I have yet to speak to anyone about anything on the topic. I can however say that I don't suggest asking anyone if they will be adding any new deals or discounts as they will just tell you off. All in all I would suggest to spend the time waiting elsewhere as after visiting almost all the other dispensaries in MA Central Ave is certainly higher priced, and seems to be more of someone's hobby than an attempt at operating a successfully competitive business. To be honest, I would not recommend anyone else to go here, but will continue to stop in on the very rare occasion to see if they get any better and will update accordingly.”
“I appreciated the staff taking time to explain all the services and products available. They offer a sliding scale financial hardship program which is great. It is a lengthy application, but it's worth the time you put into it. They also offer a referral deal and weekly Sunday specials. I look forward to taking full advantage of what they have to offer.”
“very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Staff provides valuable information regarding the use of medicine according to specific needs. I've often wondered over the years, why I had different results and now thanks to the wonderful staff, I fully understand. Thank you”
“This was my first time coming out to this dispensary and I was very disappointed with the way my appointment went. My actual appointment was at 4:00 and the doctor didn't call me into his office until a little after 4:10. After I spoke to him, I had no idea what was going to happen next. So I went out and sat down and the woman that checked me in came over to me and asked me for my order which I thought was weird. I was really hoping I would get to see the product before I went and purchased it. And as soon as I got home I checked my purchase out, and it didn't feel too fresh. So I checked out the label on the bottle and it said packaged date: 3/22/17. And my appointment was on 4/8/17..not a fan of prepackaged flower...I like to see it being weighed out in front of me to know I'm actually getting what I paid for. I'm VERY disappointed with Central Ave Compassionate Care. I would not recommend anyone going there, especially for their first time.
First time patient visiting and the doctor tells you you're getting a complimentary pre roll for being a new patient and the employee checking out my order never gives it to you...way to drop the ball guys!!”
“I have been to this dispensary many times as it is the one of the only two within distance, as I have Epilepsy and can't drive. The staff at this location is always very friendly and helpful. The quality of the product if pretty good as well. I personally think that the flower is a little dry but that may just be me. It still is very good, I especially like their Girl Scout Cookies. Overall I would recommend this dispensary to anyone who hasn't ever been. This is my go to place when my caregiver is on vacation or can not make it to me within time.”
