“When the first rec cannabis stores were opening, this one was among the ones nearby me, so I've gone here for a bit, now. It all seems so nice as first. The colorful menus. The displays. The expensive as all hell--but that's expected--glasspipes and bongs.
But the service, left much to be desired. I love weed and I'm passionate about it, so I know a lot about it. Most of the budtenders here, didn't know much beyond the basics of sativa and indica. They will pretty much recommend you what they're trying to sell out of, instead of what you actually need for your cannabis concerns.
Example: I go in and tell the budtender that I'm looking for something for pain. Back pain. Chronic pain. She presents me Dawg Star Cannabis Orange Kush and says, "I really like this one because of the flavor. B-but it's good for pain, too. I use it for my stuff all the time." My bullshit alarm was already going off, but I was a seriously hurting unit and so took the recommendation, giving her the benefit of the doubt, hoping that I would have good results. Nope. Tastes great. Smells great. But potency in the high and it's ability to help relieve pain? Not there. At all.
I was not a happy camper about that.
Their prices are quite expensive. They very rarely had the ten dollar gram buds when I went. Always like 12 on up. Same thing with 1/8ths and qtrs. Very rarely will you see any 45 dollar 1/8ths. Their qtrs were about as expensive as what I'm used to paying for half O's. $120.00! I saw a few strains go even higher in price! On my third visit, they had some Dawg Star Cannabis Pineapple Kush or Haze which had piqued my curiosity, and it was 55 for an 1/8th. I took the plunge, and once again found myself with a pretty little glass jar(and they will swear up and down that you're not paying extra for the glass because the same company blows the glass,etc, which is believable until you realize they expect you to pay a minimum 15 dollar mark up for anything by them, that is close to 20.00% total cannabinoids including THC) , filled with good smelling and great tasting weed, that. just. isn't. potent enough. Which is really sad. When you pay 55 bucks at a 15 dollar mark-up as compared to the standard 40 an 1/8th, were all used to, you expect fire. You expect superior quality since you're paying more for it. I'm sure that we can all agree that that is a fair assumption to make, right? So, once again, their product failed to meet up to my, and I'm sure many others' (fair) standards. I know more about weed than the one surf/skateboard bum looking dude at the counter, and the rest of the counter staff tends to be women who weren't hired on the merits of their knowledge of cannabis(Guys you might be thinking who cares!? she looks good! she doesn't need to know alot! Yea, no. Just like people who buy music from "artists" just because they are physically attracted to them, y'all are hurting the overall industry with those mindsets and actions).
I stopped going here once I found out about another store in the area that sells some strains at 25 dollars an 1/8th. Once in awhile, when I'm already flush with what I need for my medical concerns, I stop by Clear Choice to see if they're offering any 25 dollar 1/8ths. Each time I've been told no, and one time one of the budtenders in skinny jeans proceeded to tell me in a sarcastic, condescending tone, "Uh, 1/8ths are at least 40 dollars..." Riiiiight. Y'all keep doing that. I'll be going to a place filled with budtenders that actually know their stuff, have a loyalty program for their customers savings, and provides 5-6 strains that are 25 dollar an 1/8th.
tl;dr: This is the place for people who have more money than brain cells. If you are proud of being that way, this is the store for you.”
