So let me start by saying I am a Budtender. I was looking for a particular strain all over the GTA, Hamilton, Burlington - like literally everywhere. I didn’t want to buy online if I could’ve gotten it in person, and I was trying to find it the cheapest because I am reviewing the strain. I got what I was looking for and I got it for 5$ cheaper after-tax than what it’s on the OCS for.
When I went to the door I told the Budtender I had ordered online, I placed the order on Leafly the day before today (so Friday night), I called Saturday morning and asked if I could pick it up on Sunday and they said they had no problem making a note of that - so if you’re looking for convenience they can accommodate for you.
I still say it was a bit odd to me, a Budtender, that the Budtender working didn’t ask for my name let alone my ID, and the manager actually walked over to give me some of their branded masks... and yet never reminded the Budtender to check my ID. I showed the manager my ID because again, I know the regulations and I know how important it is for the Budtenders to check your ID - If I was an AGCO employee or secret shopper they would’ve been fucked, to be honest. So I think after they see this review they’ll be more serious about it. Other than that I thought my transaction was great, I couldn’t see too much of the inside of the store much but it’s nice to see that they have a wide variety of accessories and it looked like some silicone pieces as well.
I’ll come back when I’m in Toronto, it was in a pretty decent area, you turn right on the street and there’s some parking that’s about a 20-second walk if that. Would definitely recommend it, of course, I knew what I wanted so I didn’t get to see it the Budtender knew his shit, but that’s not a big deal to me since I work in the industry - but if you’re a newbie I recommend looking at products on their website and looking up reviews before going in-store or calling!
