“I was taken aback by the warehouse feel of the place...not very inviting, even though there is a receptionist out front checking id's. The dude who waited on us, the ONLY ONE WORKING, would hardly be considered a budtender. He had no recommendations, but considering there were only 3--three!!--varieties to choose from, he could have spoke highly of at least one!! We purchased two if the three strains and to say we were disappointed would be an understatement!! The buds were dry and lacked any signs of life....they torched quickly in my bowl....poof and gone!! Hardly no buzz to be had. Will drive an hour, if needed, to another dispensary from here on out. Will never return to this extreme example of what not to do with your marijuana store...”
“Gotta sign a contract protecting this dispensary from prosecution!?!?! I will pass knowing all to well how this good ole boy town works. Now I realize the risks locally with our corrupt trigger happy DA but signing a contract to buy a bag of cannabis is ludicrous. Are alcohol sales expected to make consumers sign a contract? Of course not! And alcohol kills in so many ways unlike cannabis. So why is liability attached to the innocent cannabis consumer?!? Maybe this dispensary's ducks are not all in a row? I don't know but there is NO list of flowers or anything for that matter online. I would have made an exception if they stayed on top of things by keeping an updated Flower and Clone list readily available here on leafly but that is not the case. The fact that there is no list for anything online tells me they don't put much effort into things. If not much effort is involved in listing on leafly flowers, bho, and clones then one might assume they dropped the ball somewhere else maybe in the grow room? I surely don't want that with today's premium prices for cannabis. I for see this business developing problems passing standard tests and making items accountable in the inventory due to certain labeled mystery weed strains made available by this business. I want to know what i am buying before i buy it not after i smoke it. With all that being said I may be over looking an element or obstacle that forces this business to operate the way it does. In any event things will need to change starting with an updated daily flower, bho, and clone list or I can't justify wasting my time when Hood River shops clearly update their Leafly page so cannabis consumers know what is available. Hopefully this business will take advantage of social communication technologies in the future.”
“When entering I was asked to remove my hat jacket and sweatshirt with no reason given. When I asked why they said if I didn't they'd call the cops. If I wanted to feel like a criminal I'd buy weed from the sketchy guy in my apartment complex.”
“Wish I had something positive to say, I'm not "out to get" this dispensary. That said, I will not be visiting them again. The problem is not the atmosphere (sparse, dimly lit and feels like a half-empty gift shop) or the strains (very few popular or known strains) or the staff (cordial at best, friendly would not be my description).
It's the contract you must sign if you want to purchase medical cannabis. They ask you to agree to a whole page of clauses, I counted about 16. For the most part, all these clauses basically say that you agree to comply with all the OMMP laws-- but by being an OMMP patient you've already made this same agreement with the State of Oregon, violating which is of course punishable by law. That this dispensary wants you to also enter into a legal contract with them is very odd. And yes, it is in fact a legal contract-- at the very bottom it has the whole "I, being of sound mind and body, blah blah agree to everything blah blah" section.
What gave me the most problem was Clause 14. This states that you agree to "defend" the dispensary in multiple ways, including legally, in the event the dispensary is subject to legal proceedings. Yes, that's right, you must agree to testify in a court of law in defense of the dispensary if they are ever sued or charged with a crime. It doesn't matter if you are on their side or not, you're legally bound to defend them in court-- or they can sue you!
I politely refused to sign the form, citing the problem with Clause 14, and walked out. I will not return to this business ever again, unless this policy of signing a contract to purchase medicine is rescinded. I highly recommend no one else patronize them until they publicly announce that they've done away with the contract. It is not in any patient's best interest for this policy to be in place.”
“I just went in the other day and they had 3 folks working, all very knowledgeable of their products, and had about 30+ strains. The other reviewers must have been there when they just opened as it looks like the have it together now.”
“Just weird. Not a professional store. This is the type of place you'd think, "I'll bet a couple of 24 year old kids decided to open a store." Only thing missing was my giant wire spool table from college. Selection not great, guys don't seem to know a lot, very little selection, and overall I plan to let the place mature for another 6 months and try again.”
“What is going on here? The flower selection is strange. Either something I've never heard of or low quality. They seem to have completely changed the staff too (in such a short time since opening) or at least I haven't seen my favorite bud tender for a long time. I'm giving a 3star for service because he was awesome and always made good recommendations for me and left a smile on my face no matter how bad I was feeling. Recently though I have to say the service is not that great. The store really needs to be warmed up a little too. It looks like someone cleaned Off their back patio and put all of their extra tables and furnishings into the store. And there is so much empty space. I wasn't even sure if they were open for business a few times. It's a very odd atmosphere. The new front desk person is nice enough but contributes to the odd vibe of the place. I'm going to give it a few weeks and go in again. Hopefully things will be better but I might just have to make the drive to Hood River or LaGrande.”
“The employees are very friendly, and the stock is growing! The flower and extracts are top shelf quality, and I've been satisfied with all of my purchases! Can't wait to see how they expand in the coming year!”
